Minnesota Man Wins $300,000 Playing Daily Fantasy Sports

Jake Sanders, 38, of Edina, Minnesota, recently won $300,000 from the Daily Fantasy Sports site FanDuel.com.  And that was by finishing in 4th place!

Sanders was a qualifier for a FanDuel $2 million dollar event in Las Vegas during week 15 of the NFL season.  One player picking up yardage in the final seconds of a Jets/Titans game reduced Sanders earnings by $200,000 from $500,000.

But the self-proclaimed “normal guy” was thrilled with his ultimate winnings.

"If you had told me a year ago, you're going to win a trip to the Bahamas, you're going to fly over the Grand Canyon and go swim with the dolphins," Sanders told KARE 11's Randy Shaver, "and, then make mid-six figures playing fantasy sports, I would have looked at you like you're insane. And I did it."
