DraftKings is looking into allegations the winner of the Week 3 Millionaire Maker may have colluded with his brother, a fellow DFS player.
Putting aside the attention grabbing prize pools of Week 1, the major guaranteed prize pool tournaments of daily fantasy sports had largely stabilized. That is until Week 6, when player activity finally caught up to some of the headlines the industry has received over the last couple weeks.
When you’re a website that offers daily fantasy sports, the National Football League is a big bleeping deal. So it’s not a surprise that the largest daily fantasy sports sites are already flexing their DFS muscles to give players a hint of what to expect during the 2015 football season.
Last month DraftKings became the “Official Daily Fantasy Sports Partner” of NASCAR. While not traditionally the first sport one thinks of when they think of daily fantasy sports, NASCAR dfs contests are gaining popularity and there is no greater evidence of that than this weekend’s NASCAR action.
