We’ve all been playing different forms of fantasy sports for many years but the newest kid on the block Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) is now all the rage. So, what is Daily Fantasy Sports?
Daily Fantasy Sports builds off of a lot of the key functions regular season long fantasy players enjoy and have used for many years.
Player stats are the aim of this game, as opposed to team stats that are more a common function of wagering and sports betting.
Regular season long fantasy contests are exactly that, contests whereby you are drafting or selecting a squad that you will basically use for that entire season of sporting action.
Daily Fantasy however, is a shorter, fixed term version of fantasy contest normally running over just one day but sometimes over a weekend for sports like AFL, NRL NFL, PGA and EPL.
The benefits of Daily Fantasy compared to season-long fantasy are;
- No season long commitment
- CASH! DFS games often involved a cash buy-in that enables users the chance to win real cash prizes daily
- Time. You can stop and start playing whenever you like and don’t have to deal with those crippling season-long injuries to players
- More challenging. With more games and more options the chance for sharp fantasy minds to shine is even greater!
When you play Daily Fantasy Sports just like with regular fantasy you are given a starting salary cap to work within to select your group of players.
Daily Fantasy games vary in format and also in structure. Your contest might be over a group of games or in some cases, just one game meaning that tactics play a big part in success.
