In the old days, the primary contract actors would have guarantees of 3x per week.  (And the nonprimary contract actors would appear maybe 2x or 1.5 times per week).
Nobody gets that anymore.

I think most contract actors right now appear maybe 1x per week or 1.5 times per week.  Some average even less.
@JAS0N47 would you please clarify that?

If actors have low guarantees, then it averages out, so if they are on three times one week, we might not see them again until two weeks later.

"Days" doesn't give anyone over a 2-per-week anymore, as you can see from the 2021 stats (not all are on the same cycles though, so it's hard to fully compare with yearly stats, but it's a good estimate):

2-per-week (90-100ish)

1. Deidre Hall (Marlena Black) 99
2. Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Weston) 92
3. Arianne Zucker (Nicole Brady) 91
4. Paul Telfer (Xander Cook Kiriakis) 88
5. Lindsay Arnold (Allie Horton) 87
*. Galen Gering (Rafe Hernandez) 87

1.5-per week (75-80ish)
7. Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane) 85
8. Camila Banus (Gabi DiMera) 83
9. Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) 82
10. Emily O'Brien (Gwen Rizczech) 81
11. Brandon Barash (Jake DiMera) 80
12. Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip Kiriakis) 78
13. Victoria Konefal (Ciara Weston) 76
14. Sal Stowers (Lani Price Grant) 75
15. Tamara Braun (Ava Vitali) 70
*. Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera) 70
*. Drake Hogestyn (John Black) 70
*. Alison Sweeney (Sami DiMera) 70

Zach Tinker was the SOD podcast episode that came out today. He said DAYS originally signed him to a 3 month contract, then they extended it. It is possible they have upped his guarantee after that 3 months. 

Also I remember when Zach was promoting Beyond Salem, he mentioned having a few upcoming projects in the works, that didn't sound DAYS related. Just taking a guess, but if he already had some prior commitments when asked to the mothership, that could explain why his airtime is sporadic.

In the past 5 years, a lot of DAYS actors have had 3-month contracts or 6-month contracts. Most newcomers have contracts of one year or less.  Sometimes the actors (oldtimers and newcomers) go on a contract for a while, then recurring for a while, and then back to short contract.

All those pictures for Tues April 26 episode ... Thanks for posting them. But I have no interest in watching those particular scenes.

There's a spoiler for Tues April 26 "Marlena questions Eric about his feelings for Nicole."  But the show didn't release a spoiler pic for that?  Sigh.
