Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS)

Fantasy sports are contests in which participants assemble imaginary teams comprised of real players. Traditional fantasy sports leagues are season-long, but recently contests have been offered that are a short as one day. Both free and fee-based contests are available and prizes have topped $1 million. Partners and investors in companies offering fantasy sports contests include sports leagues, professional teams and their owners, as well as large public and private companies. Of the estimated 55 million fantasy sports participants in 2015 approximately 16 million competed in daily fantasy contests, with entry fees topping $2.5 billion.
