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.

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.
