As a general rule, each player on FanDuel is allowed one account. In special cases, FanDuel may allow a second account to be created. You must receive explicit written permission from FanDuel before opening a second account. It will ultimately be up to FanDuel to determine whether in our judgment two accounts belong to the same person. Penalties are at the discretion of FanDuel staff, but may include closure of all accounts and withholding of any cash that we determine to have been fraudulently obtained.
There are a variety of behaviors that are detrimental to FanDuel and other players on the Service. Engaging in those behaviors may result in suspension of some or all functions associated with your account. Suspended players are expected to respect the disciplinary actions imposed on their accounts and all communication regarding restoration of your account should take place via the firstname.lastname@example.org email account.
FanDuel may require users to change their user names in cases where the name is offensive or promotes a commercial venture. The requirement to change will be determined at FanDuel’s sole discretion, and if requests are ignored, FanDuel may unilaterally change a player’s user name.
FanDuel will identify those players with certain levels of experience and/or expertise with a highly-experienced player (“HEP”) badge. These badges will appear alongside the player’s username, and such players may not enter beginner contests, and are also ineligible to enter certain contests reserved for players who do not have an HEP badge. A player will be tagged with an HEP badge according to the following criteria:
All open contests that are completed on FanDuel have a predetermined prize pool and number of entrants. Contests labeled as "Guaranteed" will always run and pay out regardless if the contest starts as unfilled. Some structured contests, however, require a specified number of participants. If that number of participants is not reached before the start of the contest, the contest will not take place and your entrance fee will be refunded. For example, a head-to-head challenge cannot take place without two willing competitors and a 10-person league will not be conducted with only 9 interested participants.
Contests lock when the first game starts for that slate. That means no more entries and no more lineup changes. Let’s say you’re looking to join a Sunday NFL contest and the first game in which players are eligible for selection in that contest kicks off at 1pm EST that day. You’ll need to enter and make your last lineup change by 12:59pm - not a minute later.
Users may cancel entries by clicking on the ‘cancel entry’ link located at the bottom of your entry on the roster confirmation page. You may cancel your entry for any contest that is unfilled. Within 15 minutes of game start, the cancel entry link will disappear when a contest fills (GPP, League, or 50/50). FanDuel will not accommodate cancellation requests for entries in filled contests within 15 minutes of game start. FanDuel has no obligation to honor cancellation requests that are not received, or which are received after these deadlines, due to technical difficulties or other reasons. Also, FanDuel will not accommodate requests to cancel matched H2H entries.
Rules for how postponed games are treated in FanDuel contests vary depending on the sport and contest type. For NFL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than Wednesday of that week. For one day MLB contests, if the postponed game is played on the same day then you will receive points for your players in those games as normal. If a game is postponed to a later date or called off for any reason, any players you have selected for that game will receive zero points. For one day NBA and NHL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than the next day. For any NBA, MLB, and NHL contests that are scheduled to include games from multiple days (such as some playoff contests), you will receive points for any games that are played no later than the day after the last game scheduled as part of the contest. If game cancellations and/or postponements mean there is only one game left in a contest, then the contest will be canceled and all entry fees will be refunded. NOTE: A game will be considered to be 'played' on a given day if it begins on that day and is completed no later than 6am Eastern on the following day.
Rules for how suspended games are treated vary depending on the sport and game type. A game is considered suspended if it is unfinished, but to be completed in the future. At a minimum, the statistics compiled prior to the end of the contest period will count towards contests. For a suspended NFL game, you will receive points for the remainder of the game if it is played no later than Wednesday of that week. For one day MLB contests, if the game is suspended until a future date, points accumulated in the remainder of the game will not count towards contests. For one day NBA and NHL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than the next day. For any NBA, MLB, and NHL contests that are scheduled to include games from multiple days (such as some playoff contests), you will receive the remaining points for the any games that are completed no later than the day after the last game scheduled as part of the contest.
Players being traded may impact contests that have already been created with the players on their old teams. Player team listings on FanDuel are updated once per day (overnight). Note that because contests are created as much as five or six days in advance, traded players may not be available in contests which include a game involving their new team, but not their old team. Also note that in some instances a player you selected may no longer be available in a contest which includes their old team, but not their new team. In that case, you'll need to select a replacement or be credited with zero points for the player.
Note that on the day a player is traded, they may still be listed for their old team in the draft screen. If they are traded to another team which is part of the same contest in which you choose them, you will still receive points for their performance. These points may not be reflected accurately during live scoring, but will count at contest settlement time. Also note that contest settlement may be delayed in order to ensure accuracy.
Most importantly, please note that in very rare cases a player is traded early enough in the day that they are able to play for their new team. If they are traded from a team with a late game to a team with an early game, you may be able to select them in late contests, already knowing how they performed that day. In this situation, you will receive zero points for their performance.
Only one game of a doubleheader will count for FanDuel scoring. Players will only score points for the game which starts at the time listed in the contest details. This will typically (but not always) be the game at the originally scheduled time.
In addition to the salary cap, there are two restrictions governing the mix of players allowed in your lineup for FanDuel contests. The first is that you must pick players from at least three different teams. The second is that you may not pick more than four players from the same team. The Service will prevent you from saving a lineup that would violate either of these restrictions.
Use of unauthorized scripts is prohibited on FanDuel. Authorized scripts will be made available through FanDuel and will be accessible to all users prior to game entry.
You can withdraw your money at any time, subject to anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing. For all withdrawals we require a valid mailing address, birthday and social security number in order to file the appropriate tax forms at year end. To withdraw, simply click the Withdraw link on your account dropdown or in your My Account section. Enter the amount you wish to withdraw, along with payee information. PayPal requests will be processed within 48 hours, while check withdrawals take 7-10 days to process. We conduct anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing a withdrawal.
In cases where you have received a bonus or other benefits as a result of your deposit and have not yet played through the deposit (entering contests whose total entry fees equal the value of the deposit), FanDuel reserves the right to refuse the withdrawal and/or close your account.
You may deposit money into your FanDuel account using Paypal or a Visa credit card (other cards such as MasterCard and American Express can be used via Paypal). If you're having any problems depositing money then get in touch and we'll deal with the issue as soon possible. There may be limits on the amount you may deposit in certain circumstances.
In accordance with state requirements, FanDuel restricts deposits in any calendar month for residents of certain states unless the user has requested and received approval for an increase. For Massachusetts residents the deposit limit level is $1,000 per calendar month. For Tennessee residents and people located in Tennessee, the deposit limit level is $2,500 per calendar month.
We try to settle contests and run payments as quickly as possible, but must ensure we do so accurately. Most contests are settled shortly after the last game finishes. However, to settle we have to wait until all the player statistics have been reported by our third party stats provider. This lets us ensure that the final box scores are complete. Please note there can sometimes be last minute changes. If there is difficulty obtaining official results or issues with scoring, the contest may be settled the following day.
During the game we receive live scoring from our stats provider, Stats Inc. After the game has ended they pass us a final box score for the game. After we receive and confirm the box scores for all the day's games we then settle all entries. However, very rarely, the leagues and stats provider revise the box scores after the final box score has been released. In the event of this occurring the player scores on FanDuel will not be updated and the settlements will not be revised. Note that this is not the same situation as a case where a correction needs to be made after settlement due to a problem with the data feed or the settlement process. In these cases the settlement process (including payment) may be reversed and games resettled correctly.
While we try to ensure that FanDuel is functioning smoothly at all times, like any online service we may periodically experience periods of outage or slow performance. These can sometimes result in an inability to access the Service, problems editing lineups, or problems entering new contests. If you're unable to access the Service, please report the problems by emailing us at email@example.com. If there are sustained periods where players are unable to access Service functionality, or otherwise prevented from editing lineups, or in certain other situations, we may provide instructions on how to cancel your entries over email prior to game time.
FanDuel also reserves that right to cancel contests at our discretion, without any restrictions. This would typically be done only in cases where we believe that due to problems on the Service or events impacting the sporting events, there would be a widespread impact on the integrity of contests.
