Fantasy Football: 5 Tips for Playing FanDuel
DraftKings and FanDuel have been the lead DFS dogs for some time now and both have had a ton of success for a reason. Their formats are user-friendly and fun. However, there are a few important differences between the two sites we must be aware of. Let’s highlight five specific intricacies of FanDuel while illustrating some important under-the-radar DFS tactics.
1. Touchdowns Are Everything
We discussed the importance of the three-point bonus in the DraftKings version of this article. Well, FanDuel does not offer the same bonuses in their scoring settings. Plus, FanDuel’s PPR settings are half-point whereas DraftKings offers full-point PPR. These changes alter the way we should approach building lineups on FanDuel. With no yardage bonuses and fewer PPR points to be had, touchdowns become significantly more important. We need to be hitting on plays that are going to cross that goal line.
