Leagues on DraftKings

DraftKings has announced “Leagues” on Sunday.

What is it? It looks like Draftkings is basically setting up season long leagues for their player base. This would be in line with the Custom Leagues already available on DraftKings.

Leagues on DraftKings are in essence, automatically generated weekly custom leagues, that send weekly reminders to all the League members .

Ironically, there were rumors of Fan Duel adding a season long product later this August for the upcoming 2016 NFL Fantasy season. Could DraftKings have beat Fan Duel to the punch?
