Disney Invests in Fantasy Site DraftKings

There are two major DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) sites: FanDuel and Draftkings. FanDuel is bigger but Disney is investing $250 million in the other online fantasy sports business (Draftkings) and extracting some revenue sharing with them via ESPN advertisements. 

The key to the daily sites are you can play fantasy sports and compete in a single day competition. No need to wait until the end of the season-just play for this sunday and see if you can win some cash. 

Time will tell if this is a marriage made in heaven or a beauty and the beast scenario.
