I've been playing fantasy sports for about ten years now. When daily fantasy started making noise, I took a little peek over to see what the fuss was all about. I thought it was initially overrated, and that nothing could match the feeling and excitement of season-long fantasy leagues. Wow was I wrong.
One aspect that I initially undervalued was the drive of competition that DFS brings out in me. Finally! I found the perfect outlet to take advantage of all my sports knowledge and put it up against the rest of the world. Since the age of 6, I would take my grandpa's newspaper in the morning, and look over how players were doing around the league. There wasn't any NFL Redzone or MLB Extra Innings to rely on. Now fast forward 23 years, and here I am.
