New Pay to Play Sports
League of Legends
eSports are live on FanDuel! As the most popular game around the world, we are excited to announce the addition of League of Legends contests on our site.
Who says watching a debate isn’t fun? We brought the political debates to FanDuel! Each time a candidate says a specific word, you can score points off of it. How popular each word is projected to be for each candidate will determine the salary for the candidate saying that word. Similar to other multiplier contests, you will have a MVP (2X points) & All Star (1.5X points) slot.
With no real games to play daily fantasy on, we’re doing the next best thing: Simulating them. Best of all, we're making this totally free and giving our users a chance to win some real cash prizes.
Here’s how it works:
- Now, instead of limiting each player to his own 2019-20 game log, ourcustom nF analytics compare him to the 25 most similar player seasons dating back to 1999-2000.
- The simulation then chooses a similar game from a similar matchup in one of those player seasons.
Example - Rudy Gobert could be a match with Deandre Jordan’s 2015 campaign and a match with Tyson Chandler’s 2011 campaign. We draw from random game logs from those two player seasons (and 23 others) and factor in the game matchup to produce a stat line for Gobert.
- Only games where players scored more than 0 points will be available to be assigned stats. No need to worry about DNPs.
- Scores will be slowly revealed throughout the night. We still want you all to have a little bit of a sweat.
- Winners will receive site credit and potentially other prizes each night and entry will be 100% Free!

No games? No problem! We’re still letting users play daily fantasy baseball by simulating games with some pretty incredible analytics from our friends at numberFire. Best of all, we’re making this all for free but still making sure our users can win some real prizes.
Here is what you need to know:
- Teams will be assigned batting orders and starting pitchers in advance, with indicators in the lineup selection screen to help you out.
- Each plate appearance of each game will go through numberFire’s custom simulator. This takes into account context such as Home vs. Road, Platoon Splits, Park Factors, player skill, and matchups (Coors Field for example, thank us later).
- The starting batters for each team will receive all of their plate appearances (no substitutions), while the starting pitchers will receive a custom, dynamic pitch count. Stats and scores will update in near real-time – check back in every inning to see if your players’ scores went up.
- Similar to NBA Sim, contest payout will be in site credit and potentially other prizes as well.
