Fantasy sports, especially fantasy football, has come a long way since my father first introduced me to it back in the early 1980’s. In those times, fantasy drafts were done via white boards and pen and paper. That’s not the case anymore. For our fantasy league teams, most of us go through a website like NFL.com or ESPN.com. Yahoo runs one of the most in depth fantasy sites on the Internet.
Sites like Yahoo are great for league play. But what if fantasy sports fans want to play weekly or even daily? DraftKings saw interest in weekly and daily fantasy sports. They jumped into the space and almost overnight became the place to go to for daily and weekly fantasy sports games.
I performed a thorough review of DraftKings just this morning. I’m familiar with the organization having used them extensively last year during football and basketball season. But I wanted to re-educate myself regarding DraftKings since we’re so close to the 2016 NFL Regular Season. See below for some of the things I discovered:
