You will find that most daily fantasy sports site reviews are based on what is best for the affiliate, NOT you the player. First things first, any sites that claim to be partners or sponsors with daily fantasy sites are in fact just an affiliate.
What does that mean? It’s simple, at this point 99% of the sites out there allow anyone to become an affiliate and generate revenue based on how many players they bring to said site.
How does that effect you? Again when you step back and look at it from a revenue and profit stand point, affiliate sites (not sponsored) will do almost anything to make that money. They look to always be first to promote the latest site to ensure they get all the new signups.
This is something you should always be aware of. If a site is brand new, ask yourself how they have vetted and checked that they are in fact reputable. With the daily fantasy industry growing so fast (prize-pools are growing faster) many sites are pushing the envelope and offering guaranteed events that just last year would have not been possible. As a player that is a great thing! However, one must always consider the fact there are no laws protecting your funds on these sites. Very recently we have seen a couple of well known established brands close their doors due to lack of funding. Yes, it can happen!
Before we become affiliated with any site and recommend them in our daily fantasy sports site reviews we make sure to provide our due diligence so you don’t have to.
We have decided to change things up with our daily fantasy sports site reviews and offer tiered reviews. It is clear, there are big sites, medium sites, small sites, and start-ups. Why not review them with that criteria in mind?
