Two days after StarsDraft announced that they were suspending DFS access to players in 46 states, Star Fantasy Leagues has added at least 13 new states to its restricted list. After StarsDraft, Star Fantasy Leagues has been the most aggressive with its player restrictions, barring 12 states from its real money contests before this week.
Star Fantasy Leagues’ exit out of these states is largely symbolic and does not affect daily fantasy players players who have options at other, much larger DFS sites. Traffic is very light at Star Fantasy Leagues and there probably is not much for the lose by being cautious until more legal clarification is given on the industry and the proverbial dust settles.
