The world that you live in is now over. Oh God, what have we done?!? I knew we should’ve recycled more! Hrm, maybe that was too dramatic of an intro for the regular reader. But I do agree, you should recycle more. Lots of states give you 5 cents back on those beer bottles, it’s totally worth it. Except those Bud bottles; yes, I’m blatantly judging you. But more to the point, the fantasy sports industry is a’changin’ and Razzball has been in on this shift in landscape since 2013 when JB first offered people a million crappy sandwiches. Believe me, the prizes have improved since then, I swear! For real, though, we’ve been talking Daily Fantasy Sports for the last couple of years and if you haven’t joined the fray, I’m gonna give you as many reasons why to below. But not just any DFS site, of course. That’s like saying you potty trained your kid and now your bathroom looks like Jackson Pollock was only given yellow to paint with. Nah, we gonna hone in that target by sending you to DraftKings. If you’ve never played, that link is where you start. By signing up through us for DK, you get a free ticket into what’s called a Moonshot. That’s a tourney. Don’t worry if you’re already getting lost, we’ll get you ready to go before the season starts so stick with us. This tourney has a $100K prize pool and top prize is $10K. Just think how much leeway with your wife and your obsession over fantasy that could buy. But of course, we’re getting a bit ahead of ourselves. You wanna hear a bit more about this game before you dive in and dive in we shall. So here’s how your bankroll gonna get swole by playing Daily Fantasy on DraftKings for 2015 Fantasy Baseball…
What Is Daily Fantasy?
This is as good a place to start as any. In many ways, you already get some of the concepts of DFS in that you’ve played in an RCL before. Oh you haven’t? Well sign up for one! Through all your roster churning and burning, you’re in essence getting the gist of daily fantasy. You’re the guy/girl/hideous creature who sees Colby Lewis’ wOBA splits at home vs LHH and decide to roll with Cody Asche. You see, Daily Fantasy allows you to draft a new team every day based on a salary cap and it means every player is available to everyone. So those micro trends that are your friends you now get to exploit big time. Plus there’s just the sheer fun of going ‘I’ve never owned Mike Trout in a redraft league but I’ve now used him 5 straight nights over on DK’. OK, so maybe that’s not you. Maybe you have always loved fantasy baseball but just don’t have the time to deal with the daily six month grind of a regular, season long league. Well here’s your perfect fit. Draft a team on the days you wanna play, don’t draft one when you don’t have time. The world is really your oyster over DK; shuck it however you want.
What Kinds of Leagues Are Available?
Ooph, really, you might just want to enter the Draftkings Lobby to find that out. And if your mom told you not to play with random strangers over the internet – stranger danger, kids – you can set up your own private leagues with friends. But really, all the ways you enjoy fantasy baseball now are available via DraftKings. Heck, there’s even a beginners section. So, if you’re not ready to wade out into the deep end of the pool, they even offering you water wings. Don’t forget your SPF-50! We’ll be going over a little strategy about the various types of leagues and how to approach them next week.
But I Don’t Want To Play For Money
Ah, I understand. This whole fantasy game to you is a leisure thing and you don’t throw down any bones on your season long leagues so why would you do so on teams you draft once a day? It’s alright, I won’t call you a cheapskate or anything…though I bet your wife was a little disappointed with the used Roomba. Craiglist is a great place to shop, but not for your wife’s birthday. Well the cool thing is you can play on DK for free. You wanna prove you’re a better player than JFOH? Well, send him a free, private H2H challenge and make sure to insult him while you’re at it. Tell him it was from me. That’s how he knows you’re legit. Just wanna play for fun without playing anyone in general? Well, each day there’s a free tourney where the top 5 winners get a free ticket to a $2 game. Take a gander at the first one of the year here.
Because you read and believe everything I say *Stopwatch sways back and forth*. Now bark like a dog…damn, didn’t work. Guess I’ll have to use charm! DK is one of the leading sites in DFS with some of the biggest prize pools you’ll find anywhere. They have a late swap feature and were one of the first to use such technology. You see it on another site? Well that’s cute, DK ain’t being a Hipster when it says it was the first on the scene there. So if Alex Rodriguez can’t pull the needle out of his bum in time for the late game, you can swap in a player for him as long as they’re priced at or lower than him. Ya dig? Not to mention DK also boasts one of the smoothest iPhone Apps in the game, not to mention an Android App as well. Let’s face facts, you’re constantly checking your phone. You know you’re not that important. At least now you’ll have a reason!
I’m Scared Of New Things So How Will Razzball Assuage My Fears?
Ummm, have you SEEN Rudy’s toolbox? Pick a tool, any tool. Razzball features some of the best info on the web when it comes to how to play your daily or season long league and they’re all useful here. The Stream-O-Nator, the Hitter-Tron, the Ombotsman…they can all be helpful. The shining crown jewel in all of this, though, is the DFSBot. Can’t tell if a guy is overpriced or underpriced for the day? Cool thing is, you don’t have to. Just ride the DFSBot projections to cash money success. On top of such things, we’ll also be posting an article daily about how to play the slate care of our Razzball DraftKings crew.
What Else Should We Know?

Keep in mind if the league doesn’t fill, we can’t play so try and do your best to get your friends and family and whoever else you’ve always wanted to whip at fantasy baseball in the DK fold through Razzball. We also plan on trying to get you more content this off-season about DK as we lead up to the year but if this is the last piece you read, take away the best part of it: sign up for DraftKings on us and win some scratch!
