We Are The Champions: Expert Players And Fantasy Types Cashed In Big On Friday
“Naapstermaan” is the leading Daily Fantasy Sports player in money winnings since the beginning of this year, and won the biggest one-day payoff in Daily Fantasy Baseball history on Friday – the DraftKings.com Midsummer Classic. Naapstermaan, who has his real name, Erik, posted on his Twitter profile, won $125,000 in a contest with $500,000 in guaranteed overall prizes.
Naapstermaan rode to the top of yet another contest, this time boosted by Seattle shortstop Brad Miller, who homered twice and had five RBIs while hitting for the cycle against Houston. Naapsterman is no one-hit wonder. He has won many Tournaments in his 3-plus years playing Daily Games, including a major DraftKings Fantasy Basketball Tournament in late March. You can follow Erik’s Daily exploits and success stories @naapstermaan on Twitter.
Widely-known Tony Cincotta of RotoExperts.com, who writes a Daily Fantasy Sports Blog over at rotoexperts.com/daily and hosts RotoExperts shows on Sirius/XM Fantasy Sports Radio, also finished in the money, as did RotoExperts.com CEO and Owner, Louis M. Maione.
If you want to compete against the likes of Naapstermaan, Tony and Louis for more big money, mark August 23 on your calendar now. That’s when DraftKings will be hosting its next big Fantasy Baseball contest: the $100,000 Sweet Spot, with a $20,000 Top Prize.
