Daily Fantasy Football Contests

Published on September 1, 2012

Daily Fantasy Football contests are a new, exciting way to put your fantasy football knowledge and 4for4.com Premium Subscription to use. While the majority of fantasy leagues draft in August and run through the season, Daily Fantasy Football contests are generally one week games that give us the opportunity to play in more leagues and win more often (and more money).

Best of all, 4for4 offers site specific value reports designed to help you quickly identify good player values to maximize winning and profitability. Only 4for4 offers these type of reports, giving our subscribers a big advantage.

Daily Fantasy Football is quickly becoming my favorite way to play fantasy football. I'm able to play in more games and win more money while the work, variance and headaches are greatly minimized. 

We have partnered with the most respected Daily Fantasy sites in the industry. We play at and recommend all of the Daily Fantasy sites below. The sales pitches are theirs, but click the review links for our in-depth breakdowns of each site. Join me in the growing Daily Fantasy Sports community. It's just getting started.

With a snake format, you must wait for others to fill up the fantasy league before drafting, but can enter the draft room right away to queue up your players. League sizes range from 2 users to 10 users to guaranteed prize pool leagues, which allow for hundreds of users. The entry fees range from free to $5 to over $400.
