Friends Mode combines the best parts of FanDuel with everything you love about your traditional fantasy league. It's you against your friends all season, but you get to pick new players – and play for cash prizes – in every contest you play. And now you can set your league’s schedule to play whenever you want.
Plus, every time a friend joins FanDuel through your league, you both get $10 toward contests.
$10 paid after each new player you refer plays $20+ on FanDuel. Void where prohibited.

Get rewarded for inviting new FanDuel players
Starting a league only takes a couple minutes. And there’s no coordinating a draft or collecting league dues.
It’s free. Just give your league a name and upload a picture.
Create one contest upfront. We handle the rest each week, all season.
Search for friends on FanDuel or send an invite link. And if you recruit a friend new to FanDuel, you’ll BOTH get $10 in FanDuel credits.
Friends Mode is a more flexible way to play fantasy with your friends. Just choose your sport, then decide when you want to play. Choose once a week, every day, or anything in between, and we’ll create your contests automatically for the days you choose. And don’t worry, you can change the schedule any time.
In a traditional fantasy league, only championships matter – and it takes a full season to reap the benefits. Friends Mode makes every day an opportunity to win your league, and collect the winnings that come with it. We pay winners for each contest instead of just once a season. And there's no tracking down your friends for league dues – we handle that for you.
How you play is up to you. Pick the amount of friends you’d like to play with (up to 20), your contest entry fee (from free to $100), as well as your payout structure. You can also pick the days you want to play each week, and we’ll automatically set up the contests for you. And if you want to switch it up, your Commish can change things at any time.
Friends Mode is a different test of skill. Because we’ve taken the early-season guesswork out of traditional fantasy — no more depth chart surprises, lingering injuries, or first-round draft busts. So you can see who knows sports, plain and simple.
With Friends Mode Chat, you can send messages to your entire Friends Mode league from right within your FanDuel app. Use it to remind your leaguemates to enter your next contest or just to remind them who’s #1. And don’t hold back, because on FanDuel, there’s no penalty for excessive celebration.
Just look for the badge on the Friends tab in your app to see when you have a new Chat, and make sure you have push notifications enabled so you never miss a post from one of your leaguemates.
We serve up your league contests on the days your Commish chooses. But you can take time off whenever you want.
Winners get paid each contest, not once a season. So if you have a great season, you get rewarded the whole time.
The official ‘Standings’ counts your top 5 scores. Put up a big score to drop your lowest score and raise your status. Or look at Total Scores to see who’s best.
