We don’t know about you, but ever since the draws were announced, World Cup fever has taken hold here at DailyFantasyUK. There’s no holding us back! We’re launching straight into another Get to Know. Now that we’ve explored the countries embarking on their first ever World Cup, it’s time to consider the teams who are returning after a significant hiatus.
Our World Cup series is in full swing and providing a great distraction from any winter blues. We’ve taken you on a journey from tropical Panama to volcanic Iceland. You’ve even been treated (if we do say so ourselves) to a flying visit to Senegal. Don’t even think about stopping us now because we’re continuing with the good stuff—experienced teams returning in 2018 after a bit of a World Cup drought.Read more...
Welcome back to our Get to Know series! As the competition in Russia fast approaches, we want you to be prepared to have your best summer of DFS yet. We’re dropping facts and player picks for some of the more obscure teams taking part in the 2018 World Cup. The hope is that this will enable you to play fantasy sport to your heart’s content—even if your preferred teams are having a rest day. As always, remember to get your friends involved too!
You wait 4 long years for another World Cup and all of a sudden it feels like it’s just around the corner. In preparation for Russia 2018 we’re launching our Get to Know series, exploring some of the more obscure teams and introducing you to their star players. That way, on days when your top teams aren’t playing, you can still partake in some DFS action—utilising your rather impressive knowledge of some of the lesser known teams. There may even be some fun country facts thrown in too!
We know you guys don’t need any more convincing that DFS is awesome. But, let’s face it, sometimes hobbies are more fun when you get to do them with your mates. DFS doesn’t need to take over your life at the expense of your relationships—just take your friends along for the ride! If you think they’ll need a bit of persuading, just bring up some of these reasons next time you’re down the pub…
It happens to the best of us, but there’s nothing worse than getting stuck in a bit of a DFS rut. If, like us, you’ve been looking to shake up your DFS game, one of our favourite choices right now is basketball. It’s fast-paced, easy to follow and definitely doesn’t lack in excitement. Read more…
Whether you’re an experienced player or a complete newbie, the world of DFS can sometimes be daunting and even intimidating. Have you ever found that you keep getting beaten by players who just seem to win everything?
That’s the curse of the daily fantasy sharks. These players are highly resourceful, spend a huge amount of time drafting their teams, and most importantly are playing to win BIG.
When it comes to turning your sports knowledge into a profit, you have two major options: Daily Fantasy Sports or regular sports betting. The two often get lumped together, but this kind of thinking ignores some key differences.
At first glance, the NFL can seem like a complicated league to follow. Each squad includes an offense, defense and special team—all of which alternate throughout the game depending on the progress of play. Once you get into NFL, however, it’s a lot of fun and one of our favourite picks for DFS.
The idea of quitting your day job to become a professional Daily Fantasy Sports player is something we’ve all dreamt about. You get to watch all of your favourite sports and call it work, lounge around your house in your underwear eating cheese puffs (just us?), and make a pile of money at the same time. Almost sounds too good to be true, right? And maybe it is.
We decided to find out what these guys actually get up to on a daily basis. Are they living the dream… or living on the edge?
No matter how much DFS you’ve played over the years, we’re sure you’ve still got time for a quick quiz. You surely can’t know everything about your daily fantasy preferences!
So, without further ado, here is the definitive quiz to determine which daily fantasy sport is really for you.
With all this talk of doom and gloom when it comes to the state of the Daily Fantasy Sports industry, we thought it might be nice to take a look back at a few of the lives DFS has changed for the better. After all, this is a hobby that challenges your mind, provides hours of entertainment and offers players the chance to win big cash prizes. And when we say big, we mean MASSIVE.
The following DFS fans found themselves with hefty cheques and instant legend status—some from entry fees as small as $13.50! Who knows, maybe these stories will inspire you to revamp your teams and kick-start DFS’s triumphant revival! Either way, it’s a great reminder of the positives that drew us to DFS in the first place.
The path trodden by Daily Fantasy Sports sites—both new and well-established—has been notoriously treacherous. This is particularly the case in the UK, where several of the big players—Mondogoal and FanDuel, for instance—have ceased trading.
The situation for DFS sites has not exactly been rosy in the US, either. With the ongoing question into the legality of DFS across several states, the thwarted merger of FanDuel and DraftKings, and multiple allegations of corruption, the odds have been stacked against DFS from the start.
Naturally, this can cause us honest Daily Fantasy Sports fans to worry. Will we be able to play DFS forever, or will it just be a flash in the pan, another failed entrant to the incredibly volatile gambling industry? Reports of DraftKings and FanDuel making huge losses did nothing to settle our nerves.
Surely things are on the up for Daily Fantasy Sports? In this article, we examine the current state of the DFS industry.
We’re back again with 3 essential picks for your Fantasy Premier League team this October! As ever, it’s easy to overspend on those top-performing players, so we’ve kept things to a nice tight budget for all you skinflints out there.
Grab these players to get ahead of your mates and to start making some fantasy football money!
What better way to kick off a new month than by trying out a new DFS site? You might not have heard much about internet giant Yahoo’s offering, but like most things DFS, it’s got a big following across the pond.
But what exactly does this site bring to the table? Aren’t there already enough DFS sites to choose from? We give you our verdict in this comprehensive review.
