100 Fantasy Football Tips in 100 Days, Day 84: Using Late Swap on DraftKings
At RotoGrinders, I broke down how to utilize the late swap feature on DraftKings.
One of the cool aspects of playing on DraftKings is the late swap feature, which gives you the ability to remove anyone from your lineup whose game has not yet started, replacing him with any other eligible player who also hasn’t started playing. You can remove a player in the Sunday night football game just before kickoff, for example, and replace him with any other player from that game or the Monday night game (assuming it’s in the same position and doesn’t cause you to exceed the salary cap).
I believe the late swap feature is one of the most underappreciated components of DraftKings game strategy. Overall, it’s used on just over five percent of all NFL lineups.
The primary purpose of late swap is of course to remove players who are late scratches or otherwise not playing. That’s a really nice feature that allows you to field the best possible lineup without worrying about questionable players not suiting up.
In addition to the obvious late swap uses, here are a few other aspects of how it can and should affect your strategy on DraftKings.
