Daily Fantasy Sports 911 Goes Live: DFS Picks, News, Reviews and More

Gambling911.com is thrilled to announce its first offshoot ever in 15 years as the world leader in gambling-related news. Daily Fantasy Sports 911 (or the easier to remember and type DFS911.com) has gone live as of May 9, 2015.  Please don't forget to bookmark the site.

“It’s the start of a new era!” declared Payton O’Brien, who oversees the DFS911.com website.  “Daily fantasy sports is projected to be a billion dollar industry in the coming years.  One only needed to watch an NFL game this past season to see DraftKings ads popping up during the commercial breaks.

“Even during last weekend’s Mayweather-Pacquiao site we were once again exposed to the world of DFS as Floyd Mayweather Jr. had industry leading FanDuel’s name plastered on his boxing shorts.”

While fantasy sports has existed for decades, daily fantasy sports only emerged over the past five years and began making serious waves over the past 12 months.  Unlike traditional fantasy sports, daily fantasy sports allows an individual to play in a daily or weekly format.

“There are great synergies between sports betting, poker, gaming and daily fantasy sports that do not exist with the regular season fantasy formats,” O’Brien points out.  “As such, Gambling911.com began covering the sector extensively starting last fall.  There was a need to develop a separate entity where the sole focus will be on daily fantasy sports minus the gambling element.”

If you think G911’s coverage of the DFS industry will be reduced, think again. 

“It will only be increasing,” O’Brien revealed. 

While hundreds of new sites dedicated to the space are likely to pop up during the summer, DFS911.com has one major advantage.

“Under the Gambling911.com umbrella, DFS911.com will derive much of its early traffic via the highly trafficked G911. In due time the site will gain search exposure.”

DFS911.com will also be prominently featured at the upcoming Daily Fantasy Sports Expo in Miami Beach this August 6 and 7.

“We are proud to be among the premier sponsors of this event, partnering up with Marc Lesnick, one of the leading industry trade show conference organizers in the world” O’Brien said.

DFS911.com comes mobile-ready so you can easily view on your smart phones.
