Fantasy eSports: The Time of MaRin Is Upon Us
We're not going to pretend to be experts on Daily Fantasy eSports... or even eSports, for that matter. But we do know that there are a ton of people who watch the games on twitch, and a growing number of people who have been participating in the games on sites like DraftKings and Vulcun. Since we live to serve: SportsGrid proudly presents our very first Daily Fantasy eSports strategy article.
On Wednesday, the FNTSY Sports Network's Colin Meenagh and Matt Best revealed their must-starts for this week's League of Legends games. The DraftKings contests begin at noon on Thursday (eastern time) and feature four matchups between the world's eight best teams, running through Sunday.
The video below features a solid eight minutes of advice and introduction, ranging from telegraphed team substitution strategy to explaining the process of banning other players. There's even eSports injury talk! Huzzah!
If you're wholly unfamiliar with eSports but want to throw a dollar in and have a stake in the LoL Worlds, this video will help (as will the lists of best value plays). MaRin, at $7,700, is the player both Meenagh and Best will be riding to (hopeful) victory this weekend. As for their departures on the must plays? Check out the video. It's too much to type here.
