What exactly is DAILY Fantasy Football?

2 posts in this topic

I'm still a bit clueless on fantasy football. I'm purchasing a fantasy football book for my father's birthday, and I want to make sure I get the right one.


What my father participates in are the events where every week his players are graded by their on-field performance in the form of points scored by TD's, yds, etc. and he has a starting roster with players he can plug in/out, but does that qualify as DAILY Fantasy Football, or something else? Come to think of it, football is only played weekly, so what does daily have to do with it?

There seem to be so many variations of Fantasy Football, it makes my head spin.

It sounds like your father is playing daily fantasy football. Every week you can set a different roster depending on match-ups. Fanduel and Draftkings are both daily fantasy. There are different types of leagues, large and small, also there is a type where two players go head to head., winner take all. Some cost to enter (all prices), and some are free. The free ones don't pay money, it's just for points. The amount of money you get depends on how much you paid to enter. Sometimes the top 50% win money, other leagues it's the top 12 or 10 people.   With daily, you don't have a set roster, as each week the roster changes.  That helps in case a player is injured or suspended.


I don't know why it's called "daily" as it goes by week, not day.  it's the type of fantasy football I play; I never started a league where one drafts players for the season.

    • No to throw ointment in the mix but who exactly said Oakland would trade their #1 and #2 pick for the Colts #1?  
    •   I never said anything about over-paying for him. Not sure how someone could possibly read what I wrote and come away with that.    And seriously; on what planet is Aiken ever going to be in Moncrief's realm. No need to answer, because it is rhetorical. 
    • I like seeing Russell Wilson get a lot of love. A lot of people seem to knock him for having a strong defense, but something that gets lost is how consistently terrible his Oline is, as well as the sea of mediocrity he gets from his receivers. I know to some Colts fans it's pretty much sacrilege to put him over Luck, but at this point in their careers I would. 
    • I would rather have #46 and #80 than Lamp. If Lamp slips to #46...great. If not, there will be a good defensive player available. 
    •   But consider this... that Colts 2 14 team was 0 -13 with Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter.  Dan Orlovsky came in and helped the Colts to go 2 - 3 in the Colts last 5 games.  Yes, this is the exact same Orlovsky that went 0 - 12 to finish out the Lions winless season the year (Kitna started the first 4) before Stafford was drafted #1.   Tells me which of these teams Stafford and Luck inherited were better , no question.   Rushing ability is a great asset (Cam Newton is light years better at it than Luck!), but winning from the pocket is still the most important aspect in a QB's game.  Do not be fooled. And GM's/Owners are telling their running QB's (including Cam!)  to tame it some.  Luck's kidney laceration that ended his season being big reason #1.
