DraftDay: For the fantasy owner who drafted Chris Johnson in the first round and Fred Jackson in the second this year, DraftDay is the go-to site to get their fantasy spirits lifted. Why’s that? It’s a daily fantasy site so every week you pick a new team so you aren’t stuck with your unfortunate-looking roster for the next three months. The site was started by a former professional poker player who wanted to bring the instant gratification and lack of time commitment that online poker offers,into the fantasy sports space. Just pick your lineup by successfully manipulating a salary cap and compete in head-to-head or group contests where you can bet and win real money. This is also the first site to offer “Leagues” to keep track of all your matchups against your buddies. DraftDay is also offering for the second straight year its Perfect Lineup” game, where participants on the site can compete for free to win $1,000,000. All you have to do is pick the top-scoring player at each position for the week. Ok, so it’s not that easy, but it’s worth a shot!
