Unlike most fantasy football players, danny1234 wasn’t a huge NFL fan for many years. In fact, the guy doesn’t even have a favorite NFL team. He loved watching football when he was young and avidly followed his favorite player, Dan Marino. As he got older, life got busy and watching football fell to the wayside. Until fantasy football came around. Once danny1234 started playing fantasy football, he found himself in love with the game all over again.
“I kind of got away from football for a couple of years…till fantasy football started. Once that started it rejuvenated me. Not only did I watch games that I would never watch before, but I would watch all the games.”
danny1234 not only liked fantasy football, he discovered he was actually pretty good at it. A member of DraftKings, he found himself consistently rising to the top of his leader board. In just one season his love of fantasy football took him from making picks on his phone to making picks at the 2015 DraftKings FFWC.
Traveling over 200 miles to San Diego for the first round of the Fantasy Football World Championship with his brother by his side, danny1234 arrived hopeful and excited. He was ready to play and ready to win. But that hope soon dwindled and the excitement faded when halfway through the game he found himself in 160th place. So, with a 3 ½ hour drive ahead of him and work the next day Danny decided to head home.
With the championship game still on his mind halfway through the drive home, danny1234 decided to pull over to check his standing. As the app refreshed, he was shocked to see himself in 6th place. Quickly realizing this meant a guaranteed ticket to Los Angeles and a spot in the Final 10, danny1234 and his brother immediately turned the car around to head back to San Diego.
