Details on the Vikings vs. Eagles game
As I’m sure many of you now know, the Vikings vs. Eagles game was shifted from Sunday night to Tuesday evening due to weather concerns. The game was officially changed today at 12:30pm EST and we did what we could to alert people to this postponement. We realize this left people with not much time to change their lineups (or if you played in a league that included the Thursday and Saturday games, you could not make any changes). Here are FanDuel’s official rules on canceled or shifted games from FanDuel’s FAQ page.
If the game is postponed but happens on the same day (for NBA, MLB & NHL or within the game period for NFL) 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. Be sure to check out the schedules (NFL schedule, MLB schedule NBA schedule and the NHL schedule) before you pick players. If game cancellations and/or postponements mean there is only one game left on a particular day, that day’s FanDuel game will be canceled and all entry fees will be refunded.
While we have gotten requests to allow the Tuesday game for scoring purposes, the problem is that we cannot do this. This is because while some people did not make their lineup changes in time, many other people did. If we allow the Tuesday game to be included for scoring purposes, everyone who redid their lineups early this afternoon will have a legitimate complaint, since they followed the postponement rules.
Despite the postponement by the NFL, we must stick by the rules we have created to maintain the fairness of FanDuel’s games.
