Let’s talk about Daily Fantasy Sports Websites. (*2/22/19 – quick update on this article, before we get into the content below, originally penned in 2015. Lots has happened in the Daily Fantasy Sports industry – including a couple of the programs we recommended initially below, going out of business. Big name companies we talekd about, have since been bought out by bigger sports betting companies; so they can offer daily fantasy sports to their audiences. From 2017, to 2018 the DFS industry only saw about a 2.4% growth; bringing in over $3 billion in ‘entry fees’. The net profits, are still under $400 Million dollars. That’s OPPORTUNITY to a business minded professional. Are you interested in taking Advantage of an opportunity? Those who ‘help’ the industry grow, will partake in the profits…. * Original content below; was John Oliver right about Daily Fantasy sports?)
If you’re new to our website, TopNetworkersGroup has been talking about the Huge and Expanding industry of Daily Fantasy Sports for several months now. In a nutshell, Daily Fantasy Sports has literally changed just about everything in the Fantasy Sports landscape. I have been playing fantasy sports for more than 10 years now; and when new sites sprang up giving people a way to Play fantasy sports without the year long commitment I knew they were onto something hot!
Time has proven that to be true. The daily fantasy sports industry is now bringing in so much money that it’s getting a lot of attention. Recently on Last Week Tonight (a show on HBO) John Oliver ripped into the industry – mostly by going after it’s two biggest names: DraftKings and FanDuel. The question John Oliver and several others are raising, including states like Nevada and New York which recently banned these kinds of websites from operating in their states, is whether or not it’s gambling.
Here’s a clip from the show; John Oliver going IN on Daily fantasy sports
Is he, and others who are raising this question right?
Personally I’m on the fence and have to say that I am somewhat swayed by the bias thinking that it’s absolutely a game of skill, more so than a game of random chance. You really do have to know something about the sports you’re choosing lineups for, otherwise you’re going to get killed by those who do. It’s one of the things you notice from playing fantasy sports for 10 years. You end up in leagues with people who really don’t know much about the sport, whether it’s football or basketball. I never really played other sports, but can only imagine the same applies there also.
That being said, if you really don’t know what you’re doing, the ‘odds’ of you winning money is against you. It’s not in your favor.
Which is why if you’re going to do it, you have to have ‘control’ – which even I will admit is not something that most people with Gambling Addiction have, when it comes to gambling.
If you are not the kind of person who can put yourself on a Budget; and Only play ‘so much money’ at a time; whether its’ a month, or a week; whatever you decide – if you cannot stick to your own plan then absolutely, you should stay away from anything remotely close to gambling. And, it IS a gamble, that your line up will beat the next man’s line up. It’s one thing to be in fantasy sports leagues for a year where each ‘team manager’ chooses from a pool of players, but no two teams are the same. It’s entirely something else when you’re playing in these daily fantasy sports competitions with others who have several of the same players that you have; With a few variations.
They might pick up a Guard that you don’t go with; and that Guard makes all the difference on that night.
But, that’s just the ‘luck of the draw’ …
Right now, my Los Angeles Lakers are having a tough start to the NBA Season and several people are raising the question of whether or not they chose the right player at the second Pick. The guy they skipped over is off to a Monster career already. He’s averaging a double double and looks like he’s going to be around for years to come. The point guard the Lakers chose, however – in stark contrast seems to be anywhere from having a slow start; to struggling. That’s entirely separate from another ‘issue’ in Lakerland. Was Julius Randle the right choice in the previous draft? Several questions are also being raised there too. Because, that’s how it goes in sports. You never really know who’s going to perform.
This is why sports betting is such a major industry – and absolutely, placing a ‘wager’ on who’s fantasy team is going to do better on a night to night basis, is a gamble.
And yet even this practice is part of playing fantasy sports.
Traditionally, everyone puts money into a pot; and it’s usually enough to award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Depending on the ‘pool’ it may even reward more places than that. That’s just how it’s always been. What Daily fantasy sports has done, is build on that idea, and take it up to a whole new level, where people have a chance to win money, every single day; Not just at the End of the season.
Is it gambling though? …. is John Oliver right about daily fantasy sports?
If you have issues with gambling, be sure to seek help. stay far away from Daily fantasy sports if you feel it’s going to lead to you making poor decisions with your money.
That being said, that’s where WE come in.
Through Topnetworkersgroup, and primarily THROUGH our 1 mlm system – you ‘should’ be learning some financial literacy.
You should be working on your ability to control what you can control.
If there was a way to get a piece of this pie – this huge and expanding market – WOULD you want to?
For us, that answer is yes, especially if the timing is right. We added One of the daily fantasy sports programs we backed into about 6 months ago, to all levels of our system. We feel that it’s an excellent affiliate program that allows you to get started FOR free; refer others; build up that ‘network of players’ – and since these sites are paying us for what that network does, we saw the Opportunity to get a piece of a rapidly expanding industry. Several of our key leaders got positioned and if you have not done so by now, perhaps it’s because you’re just not working with our team… yet. (Change that mistake. Get started with our Team here)
We feel that if you and others were to simply Play $10/mo – not only do you have the chance to win; from $1-$5 contests, you also will earn money from all the Players in your network.
We felt that if you were actually following our system, and utilizing our additional streams of income to generate money WITH The network we are helping you build, that eventually you could afford $50/mo – and so will others in your network. You can play in way more $1-$5 contests, and if you want you can even jump in the contests with higher entries. Usually the cash prizes are bigger. But ultimately it’s a win win because your network of Players, are generating income which UNLIKE OTHER Daily Fantasy Sports Sites – This one is sharing a piece with you!
Just last month (as of me writing this) – we backed into yet another daily fantasy sports competition website, with an even better referral plan.
Again, we recommend this same ‘controlled spending’ approach. Figure out what’s a comfortable range for you – and build a network that is able to do the same thing. Together you’re going to generate MONEY; while giving yourselves a chance to win too. Of course, the more you know about the sports you’re picking lineups for, the better you’re going to do.
Ok … It’s gambling.
But hey, that’s life … it’s a gamble. That’s business, full of RISK. It’s a risk to take a risk; It’s often a risk NOT to.
So let me be a little less Vague.
The first site we started talking to you about, is FantasyDraft.com – Sign up for free; start playing for free; Feel free to load up $10 – and just make sure you CONTROL yourself! Good luck!
The second site, is pretty awesome – Just got an email from the CEO this morning … I want to share ‘part’ of that with you real quick. (*edited out; this company went out of business)
For those of you who are reading this… Yea, John Oliver may be right. Eventually more and more states may decide to shut these kinds of daily fantasy sports websites down. But there’s too much money going through this industry to think that decision will be temporary. It’s business. The states want a cut.
Everyone wants a piece of the pie.
Don’t you? Get started with FantasyDraft HERE – (Update 12/28/16 – it appears DraftFury could not stay in business as we initially updated you on below, a few months ago; which proves ‘why’ we endorse multiple streams of income all the time; because Any business can go out of business …. )
