The concept of the sameday fantasy sports (also known as Daily Fantasy Sports) game is relatively new. It takes the traditional fantasy sports model and compresses it into a daily, and sometimes weekly, game.
Sameday fantasy sport is a new niche in the fantasy sports industry. Like traditional fantasy sports, players draft a team of real world athletes who then score fantasy points according to set scoring rules. However, instead of being stuck with the same team through a whole season, daily fantasy sports contests last just one day (or in the case of NFL or NASCAR, one weekend). Daily fantasy sports is quicker and more numbers-driven. Sameday fantasy sports websites do not compete for the same players as traditional sports games, but instead market themselves as complimenting traditional fantasy sports.
MLB baseball is great for the sameday fantasy sports players as it offers a complete card of games almost every day. Although the numbers are not as high as the NFL they are definitely growing. The 2 big players in the sameday fantasy sports business are Fanduel and Draftkings. Both are excellent venues to play in.
