Welcome to Daily Fantasy Cafe!

Daily Fantasy Cafe is one of the largest daily fantasy sports communities online. We help over 60,000 daily fantasy players win more by providing advanced fantasy tools, training, content, and community support. We provide free training courses through the Daily Academy for users of all levels. We offer free and premium content written by daily fantasy players who have proven results. With sports betting being legalized in the US, we are now offering sports betting content as well.


As the landscape of fantasy and sports betting in the United States has evolved, so have we. New Jersey became the 2nd state in the US to legalize mobile sports betting after the 2018 Supreme Court Ruling. As a result, we are now offering articles to help Americans bet on sports legally online. We have a list of the best legal sports betting mobile apps in each state. We also have a state by state bill tracker to help you make an informed decision before attempting to bet on sports online.

Our Editor’s reviews are tops in the industry with Editor’s ratings and comprehensive website coverage. Our most popular daily fantasy reviews include our FanDuel Review and DraftKings Review. We've been playing on the top two sites for over 5 years and they rank as our top options in the industry today. We have you covered with our list of the Best Sports Betting Apps in the US. We have a number of reviews and promotions to help you receive the best new user bonuses.


Daily Fantasy Cafe partners with the top daily fantasy sites and sportsbooks in the industry. We provide exclusive bonuses for new users like our DraftKings Promo Code that provides hundreds of dollars for new users. DraftKings Sportsbook recently launched a website and mobile app in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Indiana and West Virginia. You can find all the DraftKings Sportsbok promo code details in our fact table. If you are 18 years are older, you can sign up and receive a new bonus. Only new players are eligible and you must be physically located in the state.


FanDuel Sportsbook is locked in a battle with DraftKings Sportsbook for the top online sportsbook and daily fantasy sports position. FanDuel is live in the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and West Virginia. FanDuel promotes a similar sportsbook offer of a free bet for new users. Our FanDuel Promo code provides new DFS players with a free $5 game plus $500 free bet on the FanDuel Sportsbook mobile app. These welcome bonuses are confusing, so we've put together the fanduel promo code details in a fact table. We make it easy to understand the bonus requirements. The short story is, you need to be legally of age in the state to play, be a new user, make a deposit and be located in the legal state.

MonkeyKnife Fight

Monkey Knife Fight is our third recommendation when it comes to playing sports-related games online. Monkey Knife Fight is making a serious move in the prop game industry. They want to dominate the props niche and have been gaining ground by offering new users a deposit bonus match up to $500. You can use the promo code "CAFE" to take advantage of the offer. The Daily Fantasy Cafe Monkey Knife Fight promo code has been verified by Monkey Knife Fight staff to be the highest available offer online. Monkey Knife Fight is not considered sports betting and is available in 31 US states.

Our final daily fantasy site recommendation is Fantasy Draft. Fantasy Draft has moved to a subscription model with no rake. It's unprecedented in the industry, and the final outcome remains to be seen. Rake has gone way up in recent years on FanDuel & DraftKings, so we do think this is a great way to position themselves. The ongoing question remains as to whether the site can add enough users to support the ecosystems. Our Fantasy Draft promo code "CAFE" will always provide the highest offer available should new promotions become available in the future.

We recently added a review of the PointsBet sportsbook & 888 Sport promo code in New Jersey, Bet Rivers in Pennsylvania and a William Hill promo code that can be used in both NJ & PA. The PointsBet promo code provides up to $1,000 in free bets. BetMGM Sportsbook is offering a $500 promo code for sports bettors in New Jersey.

Michigan sports betting apps are going online this month! We have reviews on the top sportsbooks including DraftKings Michigan. DraftKings continues to lead the field in Apple ratings and user base. Coming in at a close second place is FanDuel Michigan. FanDuel has the best new user sign up offer and the app may have the best design in the industry. Michigan figures to be a top 7 betting market in the US. Tennessee sports betting apps launched on November 1, 2020 and made a big splash. The top 3 mobile apps launched and the usual suspects lead the way. DraftKings Tennessee led the group in new user signups, but FanDuel Tennessee has the best new user offer for new users. You can receive a $1,000 free bet and keep the original bet plus the winnings. There are weekly Tennessee Titans promotions and odds boosts on both apps.

Our tools are some of the most advanced in daily fantasy sports, allowing you to win more through customization and advanced options. Join us today and give yourself the best chance at winning more.

Current State of Daily Fantasy Sports

After a year of legal clarity up in the air, the status of FanDuel and DraftKings became more solidified. Confidence is high to keep growing in 2020, as both sites are quietly getting back to advertising and spending on products within their sites. Prize pools remain enormous, and sites are continuously adding spots. We saw FanDuel launch their PGA product, while recently DraftKings went into Euro Basketball. Daily Fantasy Sports has gotten back on the path to longevity, but caution still needs to be had.

A push for a third site in the daily fantasy world continues to be between Yahoo and FantasyDraft, yet FantasyDraft has garnished a lot of interest around the industry over the last few months. As FanDuel and DraftKings continue to dominate the industry, growing frustration with issues like late-swap, rake, and product performance have been voiced loudly. FantasyDraft has taken notice of those issues and worked to incorporate fixes into their product.

Minor sports continue to make appearances in DFS, as E-Sports, MMA, NASCAR, Soccer, and Canadian Football are having steady contests put out at a weekly rate. While the prize pools cannot rival the major sports, there is something for everybody when it comes to daily fantasy. This is a positive sign for new and old users who want to learn something new or play what they know. In 2020, we will be partnering with Lineups.com to provide machine learning projections based on data science. Lineups.com provide breaking NFL depth charts as well NBA starting lineups each day as well. You will be able to purchase their premium projection in our lineup optimizers.

2020 should see much of the same from the last few months, with states pushing new regulatory bills across to legalize and control daily fantasy, but not much movement has been made in states that have been ineligible from the beginning. DFS is in a much better spot than where it was at this time a year ago.

Why DFC?

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 ten 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 the 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. During one NFL season, a new millionaire crowned nearly every week of the season. Let that sink in. Sixteen 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 a 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 the 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 players to complete a roster. 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.

Tools & Data

We have come a long way from the beginning of daily fantasy sports, and there seem 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, we have 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.

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 construction 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.
