The Basics  (How to play Daily Fantasy eSports)

Daily Fantasy e-Sports is a type of manager game where you are competing against other people. The goal of the game is to select a lineup of players that you think will play well in the real world of a given week. A typical Daily Fantasy e-Sports contest lasts only a few days and at the end of the week the person with the most amount of points is declared the winner.

There are many different e-sports for you to choose from. There are contests running for:  CS:GO  League of Legends  DOTA 2  Starcraft 2  Overwatch & More.


You can compete and win money for free in tournaments known as “Freerolls”, or you can buy-in to some of the larger tournaments for the chance to win big. 

After signing up to a site and entering a contest, you will have to select the players that you want for your lineup. 

Example:

Below is how a lineup could look like using a salary budget of $10000 which is used on sites like esportspools.com

Scoring:

The scoring varies depending on the site that you play on and what type of e-sport it is. But for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive the scoring usually looks like this:

  • Kill (1 Point)
  • Assist (1 Point)
  • Headshot (1 Point)
  • Death (-1 Point)

League Types:

There are a few different variations of leagues that you can choose to compete in. You can choose to go for a big payout in a large tournament, attempt to double your money in cash games or try to win money for free in a freeroll.
