According to the format of daily fantasy baseball format, players are selected for a single series of games that often last for that day. In such case, you don’t need to be a wiser chaser in order to pick up players or fret about free agent pickups, trade players or bench players involved in the contest.


The players, who were supposedly going to play in the preempted, postponed or cancelled games will receive no points.


According to the fantasy baseball format, any points or stats made by the players after the game has been suspended will not be included once the game resumes. Instead, the stats generated by the players till the suspended game, will be taken into consideration.


The contests hosted on DraftDaily are based on the dates and starting time of the live MLB games. If the player is playing in a doubleheader, then the points and stats will not be combined into an individual score. When a doubleheader is scheduled then the DratOff can single handedly list either game or both the games. If the doubleheader is postponed game then DraftDaily doesn’t have the liberty to separately list the doubleheader games, instead the original scheduled games are used at the time of scoring. This is because the DraftDaily contest has already been created for the given MLB game and the team owners may have formed lineups according to the original game schedule.


One minute prior to the first game going live, the DraftDaily’s contest automatically gets locked. The players are allowed to amend their lineups as many times they want before the game gets locked. All the players will be locked once the MBL game goes live and the contest is locked.


The live scoring and the rankings offered by the baseball contests are stringently for the fun of the DraftDaily customers. These scores are not official and are just for information purposes. The official results will be declared after the contest concludes. Once the contest status becomes ‘Completed’, you shall know that the official scores have been revealed as the game moves from being live to complete on the My Contests page. The live scores are calculated by using the usual league points system.


Our stats provider for DraftDaily provides the live score of each game. Once the game is finished, DraftDaily gets a final box score that is used to calculate the results of each contest. However the scores will be revised occasionally once the final box score has been released.


To ensure that the final results are precise, DraftDaily waits for the final box scores that have been reported for each contest’s games. Our stats provider occasionally revises the final box scores to publish correct scores during the live games. In this case, the payout will be based on the final box score and not those published during the live games. If the scores are revised after the final box scores are published then the payouts will not be amended.
