Welcome to Fanball

Welcome to Fanball! We’ve built Fanball from the ground up to provide a fun, fair, and competitive Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) experience.

The Fanball Number

The Fanball Number is central to everything we do; we’ve leveled the playing field so you don’t have to play in contests against highly experienced DFS players if you don’t want to. Your Fanball Number will evolve over time as you participate in Fanball contests, and all of our contests have a Fanball Number range – our way of recommending which contests fit your DFS skill level. You can always play up with the heavy hitters if you’d like, but players with a high Fanball Number are excluded from contests with a recommended range below their skill level.

How to Play

From our contest lobby, you can enter a variety of different contests, including:

  • Tournaments: In our tournament contests, the prize pool is guaranteed, no matter how many people enter the contest. Some tournaments have larger prize pools, but be aware that the range of Fanball numbers is usually much larger in tournaments; you’ll likely be facing stiffer competition in these contests. Fewer players receive prizes in tournaments, but the prize amounts can be much larger.
  • 50-50 Contests: Finish in the top half of the standings in a 50-50 and you’ll win cash prizes.
  • Double-Ups: Win double your entry fee for finishing in the money.
  • Multipliers: Win 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x your money.

New to Fanball? Try a Beginner Contest

We’ve always got contests in our lobby that are geared towards beginner-level players. Just look for contests with a Fanball Number range of less than 20. You’ll avoid playing against players with huge bankrolls or years of DFS experience.

Identifying Highly Experienced Players

The Fanball Number is the easiest way to identify our most proven DFS players, but we’ve taken the additional step of labeling certain players as Experienced or Highly Experienced. Those players have been tagged with an Experience Badge, so you’ll know right way if you’re up against a player who has played a lot of Fanball contests and/or has won big on our site.

Icons for Experienced and Highly Experienced players

Entry Limits

Our competitors let their users enter as many as 150 lineups in a single contest. It’s just another reason most daily fantasy players can’t compete and win. At Fanball, you’ll never find a contest that allows more than 10 entries. You won’t need an endless bankroll, a computer algorithm forged by rocket scientists, or endless amounts of free time to be competitive in our contests.
