Fantasy Football Betting

If you're like the rest of us football enthusiasts, you've been eating, breathing and dreaming about fantasy football since the day you found out that it existed.

In past years, we've gotten together with our buddies in a central meeting spot or hop online, throw down a little smack talk and bust out our cheat sheets with the hopes of being crowned champion of our fantasy football league. The cash winnings, the pride, the "I told you so" rants - exciting stuff!

Most fantasy football leagues consist of 12-16 teams, they payout the top 5 spots or so, and most importantly, they last the entire season and you are stuck with the team that you drafted. So, bad drafts, injuries, poor picks, sleepers that never woke up, studs that went bust, etc. are all reasons that haunt the majority of the players in our league. Let's face it, if you don't have a good draft, you're going to have a miserable football season.

That all ends today though! We're here to educate you about the exciting new phenomenon called daily fantasy football betting which is quickly becoming the hottest new trend in fantasy sports, and maybe the single hottest thing in the history of the game.

Fantasy football betting is very similar to regular fantasy football in the way it's played; you pick players and you get points for what they do on the field.

However, there are some key differences, and lemme tell ya... You're gonna LOVE them!

The biggest difference between traditional fantasy football and weekly fantasy football betting is that weekly fantasy football leagues only last for a week. Here's how it works:

1. You will need to pick a daily fantasy sports site to play at. We think FanDuel is the best.

2. You will need to create an account and make a deposit, which is extremely easy via major credit cards or PayPal. A fantasy betting account is very similar to a bank account. You can only use what you have in your account. Should you decide to sign-up at FanDuel, enter promo code: ROTOPICKS and you'll be given a special 100% sign up bonus up to $200! This means that you get an EXTRA $200 to play with! These dollars are released in small increments and added to your balance as you play in real money leagues.

3. Once you've deposited, you'll need to select what type of league you want to play in. Your choices consist of different types of salary cap leagues. FanDuel gives you a $45K cap to pick a QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, and a TE.

4. You will then need to choose what kind of stakes you'd like to play for. Most weekly fantasy football wagering sites like FanDuel offer salary cap leagues for as low as $1 and as high as thousands of dollars.

5. Lastly, you'll need to determine the type of league you'd like to play in. You can go head to head, 3 man, 6 man, 10 man, 20 man and even take a shot at guaranteed prize pools of thousands of dollars (also called GPPs). You can also be conservative and play in a double up which pays out double the entry fee to the entrants who finish in the top half in scoring. One DFS site called Draftkings sometimes offers a fantasy football league with an entry fee of $27 with first place winning ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Imagine being able to quit work because of your fantasy football prowess!

No matter what type of league or stakes you play for, you're sure to have an absolute blast. And whenever you are ready, withdrawals of your cash are extremely fast via PayPal or check. It's all 100% legal too!
