Creating Your Fantasy Team
You must fill in all required positions at or below your salary cap amount which is $60,000 on FanDuel. Your fantasy football team consists of 9 positions – one QB, two running backs (RB), three wide receivers (WR), one tight end (TE), one kicker (K), and one team defense (D).
All positions require an appropriate player. That’s it!
FanDuel has updated news reports for players next to their names. This info is provided by Rotowire, which provides player summary info, player game log statistics, and the all-important player news. This is really convenient to keep up to date with player availability, injury reports, or legal status.
How to Score Points
Now that you have your team, it’s up to them to earn you more points than the other teams in your league! Review the charts below to understand how your players earn you points as well as how your team defense earns points. Note: FanDuel uses a .5 Point Per Reception (PPR) scoring system.

FanDuel offers various types of contests for its fantasy sports, which include Head-to-Head, Multiplier Leagues, 50/50 leagues, Tournament contests, and Season-Long leagues. As with all the contests, you can play for whatever stakes you want, or none at all if you just want to practice or play for free.
You cannot see your opponent’s lineup nor can they see yours prior to the game start time. You can change your lineup at any time before the contest starts. To do this, click on the Upcoming tab up top, next to Lobby, select your team, and edit as you please. Save your new lineup, and good luck!
Contests can also be entered with varying salary cap restrictions which include Beginner, Standard, and Expert categories. For example, Expert salary cap contests have the lowest cap number to build your team with.
Head-to-Head games are your team vs. one other opponent, for whatever stakes you would like to make. You can enter an open challenge or you can create your own challenge and the winner takes the prize pool.
Leagues can be entered or created by you with a standard format of an entry fee and a capped league size. So the more players that enter a particular league game, the bigger the prize pool. Payout structures are similar to that of poker, in that the higher you place, the bigger your payout. League games will identify the payout structure for that particular game.
50/50 leagues are similar to the standard leagues, except for the payout structure. Everyone who finishes in the top half of this type of league, will double their stake, less the rake and everyone in the bottom half loses their stake.
Tournament matches are generally the most popular contest type as they have the largest sizes and prize payouts. Also, there are many types of tournament types which may include survivor, satellite tickets (similar to poker tournaments), double-ups, triple-ups, etc.
Next to some of the tournament games, you may see up to two different icons next to those games. The orange “M” icon stands for multi entry, so you can enter as many teams as you would like in that particular tournament. The blue ”G” icon stands for guaranteed payout. This means if the size limit for a contest is not completely filled, the contest will guarantee payout anyway.
Withdrawing Your Funds
Before you can make withdrawals, you will need to have staked amounts at least equaling your original deposit amount. For example, if your original deposit was $200, you would need to have staked at least $200 in contests in aggregate.
Withdrawal is very easy. For PayPal accounts simply enter the amount to withdraw and your PayPal email address. Requests are processed within 48 hours, or the next business day if this request was made on the weekend.
If you do not have a PayPal account, FanDuel will send a check to USA and Canada players.
For checks, add the withdrawal amount and enter the address where the check is to be sent to a support ticket which can be found under the Help tab, and then click on the support tab, and then click on Submit support ticket. Processing and delivery of checks will usually take 7-10 days.
For U.S. tax purposes, if you earn net winnings of at least $600 for the calendar year, FanDuel will issue you a 1099. In this case, they will require your SSN to issue the 1099. For withdrawals over $250, your SSN will also be requested for this purpose.
To contact support, simply click on the Help tab up top next to your username, click on the support tab which has an extensive FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section, and then click on the submit support ticket button.
This form automatically fills in your name, email address, and your username. Simply fill in the subject and your message, and the support ticket will generally be responded to within 12 hours. FanDuel support can also be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

FanDuel is Legit
FanDuel is totally legit and I am really enjoying playing here. Depositing and withdrawing funds is immediate and painless (compared to those online poker sites). I've been casually playing MLB and it's cool but I'm just waiting for NFL season!!! Gonna make a big deposit then and make some cash! Big fan of FanDuel!
Fan Duel Review
Fan Duel is awesome, I don\'t know what these negative reviews are all about. The bonus offer may be a little deceptive - they don\'t just give you $200 for signing up LOL who would believe that anyway!! - what they give you is a refund on the fees you pay up to a certain amount. It\'s simple, jesus take 30 seconds to read the details! It\'s described on this site for gods sake!! Fan Duel simply makes sports I\'m watching a thousand times more fun. I love playing the 50/50\'s, and I\'m up since joining. I highly doubt Fan Duel is rigged or a scam with NBC, Comcast and other big investors!! Jeez, relax people, understand the welcome bonus and don\'t blame the site for being rigged just because you can\'t win!
FanDuel Bonus Rigged
Beware.....The \"sign-up bonus\" they bait you with is a total joke....
They heve been running this \"bait and switch\" offer on all the ESPN networks for months....
They are embroiled in several Lawsuits at the present..
They offer to \"match \" your deposit \"dolar for dollar\" up to $200...
so u deposit $200 they match it? WRONG.
You would have to deposit and probably Lose $5000 USD to finally get your lousy $200..
What a ripoff.....and I personally believe they have insiders that \"win\" the larger payoffs with robots on their site..
Be VERY careful with regard to sending them money...chances are you will never see a penny..
I will be suing Fanduel shortly and will advise of my progress....
As far as I am concerned they are guilty of wire fraud and False Advertising for starters.
Rating - stars....if there is such a thing
Not a Scam Dude
Hey KingKirk, it's called Multi-Entry. It's the orange M symbol listed next to any contest. You are allowed to submit multiple entries in the same contest. And why would someone want to do this? To win more money of course. If you have a single lineup and want to invest $10 on that lineup, you can enter that lineup 10 times in a $1 contest, or 5 times in a $2 contest, or whatever the player wants. And just because that player has a good lineup and wins, which means all his entries win, that DOES NOT MEAN it's a scam. It means he won and you suck. Please learn the rules before posting complete BS, thank you.
Fanduel Is A Scam
I gave Fanduel NO RATINGS. Why???? I played Fanduel in The Beginning to make some extra cash, however what I saw even after I just played to see what would be The Outcome!!!! I'm not saying Fanduel isn't legit, but however what I'm saying is that Fanduel Stacks The Odds against You.... Example, Why???? Would someone play 5games from the same league and pick all The Same Players???? And win all 5games in The Same League and end up TOP 10....
I absolutely love Fanduel! I play $1 tournaments and 50/50 tournaments and my money has lasted a long time. I'm still trying to develop my strategies to be a consistent winner - which is much harder than you think - but it's a lot of fun trying. Have not had any issues or problems. Highly recommend!
Almost a week still can't login
Almost a week since joining and still can't login to account. Tech support just waits a day and sends an email asking if I want another pw reset email. When I reply with a time frame, never get a reply!!! Then I have to remind them again I still can't login and the process repeats itself.
FanDuel is Amazing!
I just tried FanDuel today, playing in the weekly $1,000 freeroll and it's really cool. Very simple and streamlined interface. Makes football even more fun to watch! I'll be depositing some real money before MNF! Two thumbs up for FanDuel.
