It's critical to us at DraftKings that everyone has FUN. That means fairness and integrity of play must be maintained at all times. We encourage players to talk and strategize with their friends and fellow fantasy sports players about your contests and lineups, but it's important to remember a few simple rules.

Acceptable Behaviors

Social behavior that is a natural part of the fantasy sports experience

Unacceptable Behaviors

Group play behavior designed to gain an unfair advantage over others

Discussing strategy around building lineups, statistics, and the quality of your picks publicly or privately.

Example A: Having a group chat with other friends who play on DraftKings to discuss players that you think will be great plays in that day's contests.

Example B: You work closely with a friend on building the perfect lineup together.

Team-building complementary lineups which serve to work together AND executing a strategy that may create any unfair advantage over individual play.

Example A: You and 2 of your friends coordinate the makeup of the lineups you build AND coordinate which contests you enter using them.

Example B: You and a group of friends collaborate in NFL contests to each draft different QBs and WRs, to guarantee you aren't competing as directly with each other.

Using projections, written or video advice, or lineup construction tools from 3rd party fantasy sports websites to help build your lineups.

Example A: Signing up for a fantasy sports projection site and using their "lineup optimizer" to build teams using their projections.

Example B: Watching a live show on your favorite fantasy content site where the hosts share some of their favorite plays for the night.

Any use of pre-built lineups acquired from 3rd party websites or engaging in the distribution of such lineups.

Example: You don't feel like drafting lineups so you sign up for a website that sends subscribers a lineup every night.

Seeking out help from third parties (e.g., coaches or seminars) to learn how to become a better fantasy sports player.

Example: You sign up for a Fantasy Sports Seminar where leading DFS players take you through the process and tools they use to play on DraftKings.

Entering the maximum number of entries in a contest, type of contest, or event, and having a 3rd party, regardless of their relationship, put in additional entries for you.

Example: A contest has a maximum of 10 entries. You put in 10 entries but want to play more so you give your friend 10 additional lineups to play in the contest.

Agreeing with friends or other fantasy sports players to occasionally share winnings (provided that you are not pooling entry fees) in a contest you are both playing in.

Example: You and 3 of your friends each put 5 teams in a big contest and agree that if any of you win you'll give the other 3 10% of what you win.

Having another fantasy sports player enter your lineup in a contest against an opponent that has blocked you from competition.

Example: You play in H2H contests with another user who no longer lets you join their games so you instruct your friend to play against them and give them your lineup to use.
