Player Injury Notifications - overview

How do I get notified if a player is injured?

Player Injury Notifications are push notifications that alert you if a player in your lineup might not play due to an injury status. 

These notifications are sent if all conditions are met: 

  1. A player in your lineup changes injury statuses.
  2. The player’s new injury status is questionable or more severe. 
  3. The injured player is still swappable in your lineup.
  4. The lineup is attached to a contest entry. 
  5. You’ve enabled push notifications from DraftKings.
