2015 was a year of ups and downs for daily fantasy sports sites. Money was pumped in from investors, and sites were linking up with the major sports associations. ESPN and Fox Sports were even on board. Advertising was strong, maybe too strong, as it caught the eye of the federal government. Daily fantasy sports sites have flown unregulated, and have operated under their own terms since the beginning. Things have changed over the last few months, as residents in some states have seen the game be challenged for its legality. Attorney generals in several states have taken stabs at the industry, while Nevada has shut it down entirely. There is a lot up in the air for 2016.

We have already seen sites take steps in the right direction. Beginner contests, stronger location checks, and scripting tools have already surfaced. This was due to the talks of state-by-state regulation that is likely to occur. Massachusetts AG, Maura Healey, has taken a much more practical approach to the issue, unlike New York AG, Eric Schneiderman. Healey approached major daily fantasy sports sites with regulation ideas including, banning college sports contests, a 21-year-old age limit, deposit limits, and a better ability to detect high-experienced players from low-experienced players. On the other hand, Schneiderman has aggressively hammered both major sites, This will be an ongoing battle into 2016.

Despite the ongoing pressure of the government, prize pools have continued to be at the highest we’ve ever seen. The Millionaire Maker on DraftKings did not take a hit, and we continue to see massive prize pools dominate NBA, NHL, and MLB. Other sports like, E-Sports, PGA, soccer, MMA, and NASCAR have all made their way into the daily fantasy scene, creating an even bigger following. We have even seen PGA get their own Millionaire Maker. Live finals have been a big part of daily fantasy, and we will continue to see them in 2016. Sites have made these live finals obtainable to the average player by lowering entry fees. In the past, these have been catered to the high bankroll players.

2016 is going to be a crucial year for daily fantasy sports, and we are all wide eyed waiting for something major to happen. Until then, we can enjoy the biggest prize pools to date in a variety of sports.

The Cafe team has been entrenched in fantasy sports for over a decade. Since the rise of daily, our team's success has translated into millions of grossed dollars won and an unprecedented number of Top Accuracy awards on Fantasy Pros. The daily fantasy sites featured on dailyfantasycafe.com are legal to play on if you are located in the US & Canada. Our “Top Rated” sites will pay out an average of over $15 million each week throughout 2015. We love season long, but the future may be in daily. Daily Fantasy is exponentially more fun than season long fantasy football, fantasy basketball, fantasy baseball or fantasy hockey, simply because you are able to experience a draft every day you play.

When I first jumped into playing daily fantasy football, my primary concern was whether it was legal and I wanted to be 100% certain I would get paid when I won. I have a poker background and know what it's like for overseas companies to close up shop and take my account balance with them to Europe. It wasn't a good feeling. “Trustworthy” and “reliable” were at the top of my list of criteria I was looking for in a daily fantasy money league website. I quickly found that all the daily fantasy sports sites are US or Canada based businesses and the main difference with this industry is that it's legal by US Federal law. You can read more about it on our Legal Page.

Once I felt good about the legality, I started looking for the best site with the largest player base and most action. This wasn't an easy task as I found about 10 websites that all claimed to be the top site with the best games. I learned the hard way and have played on and tested each of the top sites in the industry. In my first year, I came out ahead by researching and using logic that we share on dailyfantasycafe.com. You don't have to win first place in each tournament to make a profit. For a nice introduction and strategy outline, start with the Daily Academy course. Our reviews are real, raw and contain exclusive information straight from the daily fantasy sites. We interview the owners, executives and managers to give you data and insight no other site can provide. We have the leading tools in the industry including the top FanDuel NFL Optimizer and DraftKings MLB Lineup Optimizer.

You have the potential to become a millionaire in one weekend. In 2014 during the NFL season, a new millionaire crowned nearly every week of the season. Let that sink in. 16 people were made millionaires by playing in a daily fantasy football contest. You can win entries into these large tournaments for as little as $2 or buy a seat directly for no more than $200. Our job is to provide you with the best sites, the highest deposit bonuses and strategy to help you win money. Get started with your training at the Daily Academy.

Daily fantasy contests are primarily daily or weekend contests. People refer to these contests as daily contests, but they NFL contests are really multiple days long. Virtually all of the contests are based on a salary cap draft. You have a salary cap and draft a number of roster of players. If your team has the highest score you win. Daily fantasy sites aren't going anywhere and with a bit of work and a lot of fun, you can start making money now. Don't wait, get started and we hope to see you holding that $1 million dollar check very soon.

We have come a long way from the beginning of daily fantasy sports, and there seems to be new tools and data popping up more frequently. You might be curious as to what is new and old, as well as what is in store for the future. Lineup optimizers have been the calling card for many daily fantasy advice sites for some time, but now it is a race to see how advanced you can make it. We have also seen data and statistics geared specifically for daily fantasy sports. DraftKings points per minute, FanDuel points scored when a teammate is on/off the floor, you name it. Vegas lines are heavily involved in research these days, and sites have taken note of that. The amount of Vegas-DFS correlation info has really been on the rise in the last six-to-eight months. We are excited to see what is in store for 2016.

Lineup optimizers are geared towards all skill sets. They have the basics down for the average skilled player, and the advanced options for those who want to learn, as well as for those who have been playing for a while. Optimizers are always a work in progress, due to the many possibilities that can go into them. We have seen applied models, exposure, excluding teams/players, and many more features in the last year. Optimizers are the arms race of the daily fantasy world. They are the muscle, and are always expanding.

Research back in the day was fairly simple, and by back in the day, I mean 2012. You had your defense vs. position, Vegas lines, and some advanced stats to work with. You also had multiple tabs open, and research was a bit scattered. Things have drastically changed, and DFS statistics have been advanced. Information like how many fantasy points a player scores while a spread is in the double-digits is available, or fantasy points scored when a player is hitting third compared to fourth. Research and lineup constructing has gotten much more involved in the last year and a half. This has helped everyone in the industry, from the casual player who only has time to read an article, to the advanced player who researches hours a day.

The amount of information, tools, and statistics out there now is baffling from where it was a few years ago. Us here at Daily Fantasy Cafe are intrigued with all this new data because it helps us make you successful.
