Fantasy Football Transformed


FanDuel Offers a New Look, New Products and More Ways to Win

Today, FanDuel announced the launch of its new slate of products and
experiences for the 2018 fantasy football season, and it will truly
transform the way sports fans engage with football.

FanDuel will debut two exciting free-to-play games that will be a
departure from traditional fantasy contests. Rather than drafting
players, simply pick your favorite teams each the week, for the
opportunity to defeat your friends and win some great cash prizes.

  • Can you survive FanDuel and win $250,000? – Sign up for
    FanDuel's free season-long Survivor contest on Week 1 of the football
    season and pick a team each week (can't duplicate picks) that you
    think will win. See if you have what it takes to come back each week
    and survive until the end of the season for a share of the $250k prize
  • Go ahead and Pick'em – FanDuel is introducing Gridiron Pick'em
    presented by Roman, a weekly selection contest where users will need
    to correctly pick the winners of each football game (Sunday-Monday
    Night) for a chance to win a share of a $10,000 prize pool. If no one
    selects all of the winners correctly, the prize pool will carry over
    to the following week.

Montana to Rice. Pippen to Jordan. Gretzky to Messier and now
Moreways to Win!

The 2018 fantasy football season will also feature the launch of
FanDuel's new advertising campaign, "Moreways to Win." FanDuel is
introducing John Moreways and Sammy Win (the world's first multi-sport,
mega-star duo) as their new spokesmen. Through their storied exploits on
the field (or court, ring, track...any surface on which sports are
played) the iconic duo shows there are always Moreways to Win on
FanDuel. This 360 campaign concepted by VaynerMedia will be featured on
television, radio, online, out-of-home, and social media. To see the
launch of the new campaign click on

"We reinvented the FanDuel experience this year with new casual games,
simpler scoring formats, fantasy drafting tools, a personalized lobby,
more free contests, and a totally redesigned look and feel," said Mike
Raffensperger, CMO of FanDuel Group. "This transformative experience
needed an equally ambitious marketing campaign, and we're excited to
introduce John Moreways and Sammy Win, who represent the passion, fun,
and competitive nature of all fantasy sports fans."

continues to innovate in 2018 with the following enhancements that will
make fantasy football easier to play:

    your friends in private head to head fantasy contests for cash or
    bragging rights.
  • FanDuel's Simpler Interface – For anyone new to FanDuel,
    signing up has never been easier. With only a few simple steps to sign
    up, new users will now be greeted with a personalized welcome page
    tailored with contests and content that meet a user's level of
    experience and interests.
  • Guru – Introducing Guru, a brand new research tool to guide
    users through the lineup selection process. Guru will help users make
    smarter player choices and build better fantasy teams, not only
    suggesting players to draft, but explaining the strategy behind
    specific picks as users move through the drafting process.
  • Enhanced research and Scoring - As part of FanDuel's effort to
    invest in content, users will find a new research tab on
    featuring expert opinions and analysis from a wide range of trusted
    media outlets, including numberFire and Rotogrinders. Users will also

    lineup to find out how they performed. In addition, will
    have box scores with stats from every football game to track game
    stats and game results.
