August 1, 2016
Fan Duel has posted the first of their 2016 Fantasy Football Contests.
This schedule is just the start, they have posted their headline contests for week one of the 2016 NFL schedule. You’ll also see the Week One NFL player salaries and can start your Kick Off weekend line-up preparations.
Along with the posting of the first 2016 NFL fantasy contests, Fan Duel re-branded themselves and issued their Players Bill of Rights on The “New” Fan Duel.
You can also expect to see more NFL contests added as we get closer to the week one kick-off. I expect to see week one Thursday (9/8) start contests, Sunday only, Sunday afternoon only and Sunday/Monday prime time contests. There will also be literally thousands of smaller 3, 5, 10, 20 and 100 team leagues along with numerous qualifiers for upcoming contests.

Keep in mind you do not have to set/lock your line-ups just yet. You can buy-in, set a preliminary line-up and edit it as we get closer to the actual games.

I went over the NFL scoring on Fan Duel and only noticed one difference for 2016.
Added for 2016: DEF Extra Point return 2 points.
Something else that everyone who has played on Fan Duel before will notice, Fan Duel launched their completely new look this morning 8/1/2016. All new colors, all features highlighted and explained, a totally new looking and operating Fan Duel…….
