What are the DraftKings Community Guidelines? (US)

Life’s more fun with skin in the game, and any unfairness gets in the way.

DraftKings is committed to Fair Play. The Community Guidelines are an outline of the acceptable and unacceptable behaviors while participating in our skill-based Fantasy Sports contests.  

  • Acceptable: Social behavior that is a natural part of the Fantasy Sports experience.
  • Unacceptable: Group play behavior designed to gain an unfair advantage over others.

DraftKings is committed to maintaining a fair and level playing field to preserve the competitiveness of the contests. Adherence to the Community Guidelines ensures the fairness and integrity of our Fantasy Sports contests is maintained. The examples below taken from the Community Guidelines outline both acceptable and unacceptable behaviors while playing in Fantasy Sports contests.

* DraftKings actively monitors and investigates user behavior that may impact the integrity of the Fantasy Sports contests to preserve the safe, fair and competitive nature of our contests that you've come to know and love. Consequences for violating these guidelines vary depending on the severity of the infraction and the player’s history. Please note the results of individual investigations must remain confidential to assure integrity of our process. The Community Guidelines are merely an outline of examples of the types of behavior that may tend to impact the integrity of the Fantasy Sports contests, and aren't intended to be exhaustive. Nothing in the above shall be interpreted as limiting or restricting in any way the DraftKings Terms of Use.

Note: Duplicate lineups and ties are endemic to the game and not definitive proof of an unacceptable behavior as defined by the Community Guidelines, however, the DraftKings Game Integrity and Ethics team is committed to review any suspicious examples reported.  

If you see something suspicious, report it

To effectively fight unacceptable behaviors aimed at gaining an unfair advantage over others, we also rely on YOUR help. If you see something, please let us know. We review all player-submitted concerns and even though we cannot offer details on individual investigations a member of our team will review your submission and get back to you.  If you suspect that another player(s) may be engaging in behavior that you feel negatively impacts the integrity of our daily fantasy sports contests, please contact us at GameIntegrity@DraftKings.com.
