Weekly DFS Review: Fantasy Factor
This week here at MFST we will be introducing you to Fantasy Factor!
Fantasy Factor was founded in 2009. Their goal is to provide only single entry contests to the DFS community. A big benefit to us players is that this evens out the playing field. On top of that, Fantasy Factor offers the lowest entry fees as well as the occasion Survivor pool or NFL square contests. This site is set up similar to the big guys in which, you draft a team, try to accumulate the highest amount of fantasy points, and win. They offer contests for the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, and EPL.
With the lowest entry fees on the market, Fantasy Factor strives to create a more relaxed and casual DFS community. Contest start out as low as one penny and all the way up to $22. This allows the more casual player to compete against other users without breaking the bank or having to risk a bunch of your bankroll. To go with the low entry fees, Fantasy Factor also has very low contest sizes which means fewer players to compete against.
To get started, simply join a contest and you will then be given three options. You first have the ability to import a previous qualifying roster to the contest. Of course you can manually draft your team, one position at a time as you would in a standard DFS contest. A great feature on Fantasy Factor is their quick pick option. The quick pick option allows players to get a quality lineup without having to research or having to fight staying under the salary cap. The quick pick feature has an algorithm that randomly optimizes your team while staying under the salary cap.
During the NFL season Fantasy Factor offers more than just DFS. They also have Survivor pools and NFL squares contests. These two special contests run during the NFL season and offer the user another way to win. Fantasy Factor also provides private contests so you can choose to compete against select players or to create a contest between you and your friends. When referring your friends, you both get bonus points to use on the site as well.
To make the experience even better the website has a live leaderboard. These leaderboard show the players with the highest scores across every sport for each given month. That makes for an easy way to brag to your friends. Another interesting feature on Fantasy Factor is an award system using points. Points are awarded to players of the site for signing up, referring friends, and by entering contests. These points can then be used to enter contests, purchase memorabilia from their store, or even tickets to live sporting events.
Fantasy Factor allows its users to deposit using a credit card, PayPal, and even Bitcoin. First time users get a free $5 just for depositing and that can go a long way when most contests cost less than $5. You may withdraw from their site using PayPal, Bitcoin, or by check.
Good luck DFS lovers.
