[caption width="640"] Will Cam Newton lead your team to victory on FanDuel this weekend?[/caption] On Sunday, the daily fantasy sports site FanDuelis hosting an NFL Sunday Million for the AFC and NFC Championship games. It's only a two-game slate, which means the winner will need to have plenty of differentiation in his lineup in order to make it out of what could be a 46,000-man field. The tournament costs $25 to enter and has a first place prize of $100,000. The top 8,750 lineups will finish in the money, with a minimum payout of $50, and the top eight will bring home a five-figure pay

  3. [caption width="468"] David Johnson helped Dank18 win the FanDuel Sunday Million[/caption] The Week 15 FanDuel Sunday Millionended with a one-point win for Dank18, who turned $25 into $175,000. All Dank18 needed was the Denver Broncos to explode, and that's exactly what happened, as Brock Osweiler threw for three touchdowns and almost 300 yards. Dank18 stacked Osweiler with receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. The former had 10 catches for 181 yards and a score, while Thomas found the end zone twice on five catches for 61 yards. Osweiler also rushed for a TD in the process an
  4. This week's FanDuel Sunday Million is offering up $2 million in prize money, with 91,954 entrants competing for a $200,000 top prize.

  6. Each of the last five years, Dan Smith has organized a charity drive that pledges to match a portion of what is donated. This year, Smith, along with a group of poker and daily fantasy sports (DFS) pros, pledged to match up to $1.29 million. The drive is officially called the Double Up Drive and benefits 10 different charities, with eight focused on near-term causes and two focused on the long-term. "Poker is an inherently selfish game," Smith said about using his platform in poker to raise awareness and give back. "For me to win, that means somebody else directly has to lose. After a lot of
  7. "Look at you… In two years, they'll be marking your gravesite. Me? I'll be right here." Nino Brown might as well have been talking to traditional fantasy sports because their time is truly over.

  8. According to Online Poker Report (OPR) and a Tweet from ESPN writer David Purdum, Nevada Gaming Control Board officials have begun examining the legality of daily fantasy sports (DFS), which US players can play on sites like FanDueland DraftKings for real money. The Tweet from Purdum read, "Nevada Gaming Control chairman AG Burnett has begun legal analysis of daily fantasy sports and welcomes communication from DFS operators." Purdum followed up a question of whether Nevada could eventually outlaw DFS by responding, "Maybe end it in the state, but not nationwide. Still so much gray a
  9. The biggest GPP on FanDuel this past week was the $3,000,000 guaranteed event that offered $500,000 to first for a $25 buy-in. Coming out on top of the field for that six-figure score was 'Rtoraine'. His winning lineup included some of the more popular picks for Week 9, but also had some real value finds that eventually led his team to amassing the 229.18 points needed to win. Here's a breakdown of Rtoraine's lineup: QB: Cam Newton (2.2% owned, 34.58 points) RB: Adrian Peterson (3% owned, 21.3 points) RB: DeAngelo Williams (26.5% owned, 37.5 points) WR: Antonio Brown (25.1% own
  10. In recent days, PokerStars, the world's largest online poker site, has been surveying players about daily fantasy sports. Why? As we've reported here before, PokerStars is launching its own DFS site or acquiring an existing one, potentially by the start of football season. The survey's questions range from a person's knowledge of the industry and activity in it to whether they've heard of the two major players in the DFS space: FanDueland DraftKings. Also included are a few questions related to PokerStars' brand. About halfway through is the question, "Are you aware that Daily Fantasy Sp

[caption width="468"] Demaryius Thomas is the most expensive receiver this week on FanDuel[/caption] If your Saturday is looking dull, cold, or you just need a new hobby, the NFL Divisional Round begins at 4:35pm ET with Kansas City at New England. Get your popcorn read. Question marks on both sides of the ball could mean some sneaky daily fantasy football plays and should make for a weekend of low-scoring, defensive-driven pigskin.

  16. With the NFL Divisional Round this weekend, we'll look at a strong tool that can be utilized in a four-game, two-day tournament. As many people are already aware, there are a number of differences between DraftKingsand FanDuel, the industry's two major players, when it comes to format, including roster spots (kicker on FanDuel, flex on DraftKings) and scoring structure (DraftKings being full 1 point PPR, FanDuel being 0.5 PPR). When it comes to a short slate, perhaps the single most important distinction between the two sites is the late swap feature on DraftKings. On FanDuel, once the

  19. So Nevada shut down daily fantasy sports operators in their state yesterday. They basically said DFS is gambling, so therefore providers need to have a gambling license to offer DFS contests in the state of Nevada. --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com.Get in the game! --- I am frustrated and just deleted a big rant about a government that legislates morality.

  20. On Wednesday, Online Poker Report's Chris Grove (pictured) published a series of Tweets regarding the legality of daily fantasy sports (DFS).

  21. [caption width="468"] Should you put Jordan Reed into your DFS lineups?[/caption] The NFL Wildcard round presents a unique puzzle when it comes to the DFS landscape: a card of only 4 games, comprising 8 teams all good enough to qualify for the post-season. Due to the vastly reduced number of players in the pool, a winning tourney team will have to have at least one player who goes off at very low ownership. The first thing we need to do in attacking a 4-game slate is to re-evaluate what it means to be a low ownership player. For argument's sake, let's assume there are 4 teams on a bye,
  22. [caption width="468"] JJ Watt and the Texans defense propelled rahuld76 to victory[/caption] rahuld76took down the Week 17 FanDuel Sunday Million. Rather than stack a quarterback with his receiver or tight end, as is customary, rahuld76 stacked New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning with his running back, Rashad Jennings. The duo was 18% and 9% owned, respectively, and scored a combined 42 points. As 4for4 put it, "When you pair a QB and RB on what turns out to be a high-scoring offense that day, the upside is you may gain exposure to all of that offense's TDs and most of its total yard
