Founded in 2009, FanDuel has been a leader in daily fantasy sports since the industry’s early days. Although not many, there are other quality and trustworthy DFS sites, but FanDuel is by far the most preferred site by Huseyin “The Brain” and Fantasy Couch.
I remember in 2010 when co-founder Lesley Eccles reached out to us, and although we didn’t fully grasp the concept at first, we were intrigued. It took me a couple years to realize that daily fantasy football was a different beast from traditional, season-long leagues. This is also around the time where I started to fall in love with daily fantasy sports. FanDuel has a special place in my heart because they were the pioneers of this industry and Lesley was the first person to reach out to us on a professional level.
Fast-forward to January 2015 and the site has exploded. This was the month that FanDuel announced that it had eclipsed the 1 million users milestone. It’s easy to see why. FanDuel has a simple design and interface that makes it the ideal place for beginners to start their DFS experience. After playing in thousands of different contests, I won more often and won more money playing on FanDuel, especially in GPPs (guaranteed prize pools or tournaments).
