Fantasy sports are a great way to have fun with your favorite sport – whether it’s football, baseball, basketball, hockey or other team sports. Whether its professional or college, for those that have a competitive nature, fantasy sports teams allow individuals to create their own unique, customized team across any player in the league.

Fantasy sports have been around for many years. Thankfully, the days of being limited to a work or neighborhood fantasy sport league, and manually calculating scores are a thing of the past.

Fan Duel, along with the other daily fantasy sports giant Draft Kings, spent over 150 million dollars on advertising last year alone. These two dominate the daily fantasy sports world and with good reason; they have a better game selection, more daily participants and bigger payout totals than any other fantasy sports game service. Fan Duel has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Sports Illustrated and Fox Sports, and is neck and neck with Draft Kings in the fantasy sports public eye. We rank Fan Duel a very close second to Draft Kings for a few reasons we will discuss below.

Fan Duel offers fantasy sports contests in all of the major sports; users can choose from baseball, pro football, college football, pro basketball, college basketball or hockey. The niche sports like golf and soccer are not yet available, and this is one slight edge Draft Kings has over Fan Duel. Still, the vast majority of fantasy games are played within these 6 sports, so for most people this won't be an issue. Total payout at Fan Duel in 2014 was $500 million, but recently they projected a $2 billion dollar pay out in 2015, likely to compete with Draft Kings claim of a $1 billion dollar pay out. We will be keeping our eyes on who wins the escalating payout war, but Fan Duel is certainly at or near the top of the list in this category.

The Fan Duel website is polished and slick and easy to use. Signing up for an account is a snap, simply enter an e-mail, username and password and an account is set up and active. The site navigates you immediately to a page where players can make their first deposit which is necessary in order to play games for money. Fan Duel will match the initial deposit up to $200, which is less than the $600 that Draft Kings currently offers and truthfully not that great in the world of daily fantasy sports. After depositing funds the user can select from the 6 major sports mentioned above, and chose from the standard types of fantasy sports contests; Guaranteed Prize Pools (GPP), head to head match ups or 50/50 games where half the entrants win at least some money. Players can enter for as little as a dollar or as much as $10,000, so there is a prize level for casual players as well as serious high rollers.

Drafting a line up is quick and easy. Simply review the list of available players, choose a team while staying under the salary cap, and submit the line up to as many contests as desired. Winnings pile up in the players Fan Duel account and can be withdrawn easily through PayPal at any time. Fan Duel also offers a mobile app so players can play and track their games on the go.

Fan Duel is an excellent daily fantasy sports gaming site that finishes a very close second in our rankings. Any fantasy sports enthusiast will have a great experience gaming at Fan Duel.
