  • Regardless of how the old guard may feel, fantasy football is now a huge aspect of NFL football. Fantasy has altered the way fans watch and digest games, and even how the media covers the league.
  • While fantasy leagues have been around in some shape or form since before the internet, daily fantasy games are a relatively new aspect of the industry.
  • Rather than season-long rosters in 10- to 14-team leagues with friends, players draft short-term lineups and compete against hundreds of thousands of other players at a time.
  • Daily fantasy sports is expected to become a billion-dollar industry by 2024, and FanDuel is one of the leaders in the space. FanDuel is currently matching the first $20 deposited by new players - here's how you can sign up and start playing.

After a long summer, football is finally back. Millions of fans across the world will tune in September 5 as the NFL kicks off the 2019/2020 season. But fans are no longer watching solely for the love of the game. Due to the rise in popularity of fantasy football, the average NFL fan is now more likely to be financially, rather than emotionally, invested in the game.

One relatively new form of fantasy sports are daily games. Rather than competing against a league of friends or office colleagues and drafting a roster that you manage all season, daily fantasy players draft one-week lineups that are entered into pools of hundreds of thousands of players.

These daily fantasy games vary in size, rules, entry fees, and payouts, but ultimately they all follow the same basic gameplay. Each user is given a "budget" that they can use to draft a lineup from a pool of players. These players are assigned a cash value based on their projected performance, and players compete to put together the lineup that scores the most points. How the scoring works differs based on whatever game or site you play on, but ultimately players earn points based on the number of passing, rushing, and receiving yards, plus the touchdowns they compile.

One of the leaders in the daily fantasy space is FanDuel, which currently has over six million registered players competing in games on their site. While daily fantasy is now offered in virtually all major sports, the main foundation of the game is football.

Currently, FanDuel is matching the first $20 new users deposit into their account, via $5 payments over four weeks, which can then be used to enter into games on the site. FanDuel has both paid and free entries available, but you need to deposit at least $20 into your account to access the $20 bonus.

If you are interested in playing daily fantasy football on FanDuel, here is how you can create an account and start building lineups.
