From television and Internet advertisements to social media trends and even subway billboards, daily fantasy sports surrounds us every day. It's the wave of the future.
Every day is a new season in #DFS (the popular hashtag used to distinguish this fantasy format), so it doesn't warrant the level of commitment of traditional season-long leagues. Daily contests involve far greater attention to injuries, starting goalie updates and line combinations leading up to games, because it all comes down to performance on the night of the contest you join. Once the puck drops, you're glued to your smartphone or laptop for scoring plays involving your players.
