Winning A Million Dollars In Daily Fantasy Sounds Like A Fantasy..Until It Becomes Real Life
Everyone loves fantasy sports. Football, baseball, hockey, basketball, we can't get enough of them. However, our love for the industry grows stronger when our wallets get bigger. For some, it happens only once in their lifetime, and for Drew Dinkmeyer, the unthinkable has happened.
Drew Dinkmeyer, a Ft. Lauderdale native, won a cool mill through fantasy football. The founder of DailyRoto.com, Drew has a love for math and watching sports. He has developed a system of statistics and numbers to create spreadsheets that estimate the performances of each player before the week begins. In the latest edition of "Out Of My League", Tim observes the computer screen in total confusion as Drew sits there and lays out his entire cheat sheet like it's his 5th grade homework. His winning lineup featured some of the leagues best like Eli Manning, Le'Veon Bell, Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr.
As exciting as winning a million dollars is, Drew did mention in the video how it stinks that the government has to take a huge chunk out of the winnings (obviously). So yep, you win this one America. After winning the million dollars, Drew made it seem like winning that much money playing fantasy sports was nothing. Uh, sure. But we guess it helps a bit when you have a very extensive knowledge of numbers, projections, and the world of sports in your arsenal.
It's not as easy as Drew makes it seem to win these tournaments against thousands of players. You know some of us have lost way too much money playing daily fantasy (read: me).
