Our mission at FanDuel Insider is pretty simple: We want to be the most trusted authority on fantasy sports. Playing daily fantasy sports is a lot of fun, but it’s also a totally different beast from the season-long variety. Each piece of news means something in the DFS world, and we’re here specifically to not only report that news, but also provide various opinions and analysis of how it’ll affect your FanDuel lineup on that particular night.
While there will be times when we show you an amazing highlight or a funny Vine from last night’s game, we’re here to find out what’s most important to you as a daily fantasy player and provide all the information possible to help you find success. We’re proud to be a part of the no. 2 sports site on the internet, and we’re not just going to tell you which players are matchup-proof or which ones are value plays. We’re going to give you concrete reasons as to why they fall into those categories by using past production, future projections and advanced statistics.
We’ve got everything you need all in one spot: experience and award-winning fantasy analysts, along with some of the brightest and most dedicated minds in the industry providing unique tips and strategies to empower FanDuelers to take their game to the next level.
