Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) is an accelerated version of Fantasy Sports.
In DFS, contests are played between contestants that compete on who can create the best imaginary lineup of real players from professional sports. The winning lineup is determined from the statistical performance of the players from actual games they were drafted from.
In traditional Fantasy Sports, contests are held for an entire season and your scores are counted over that entire period. Whereas in DFS, you’re only looking at game stats from a single time frame.
