Understanding Fanduel and Draftkings Scoring & Rules

These two websites are very similar, but have KEY differences.  They both incorporate a Salary Cap which you have to stay under while picking your team of players.  Remember that these websites set different Salary Caps and prices per player, just because there is good value on a player from one site does not mean that player will be good value on the other!  If you are brand new to either of these websites I suggest you read this very carefully.  I will not cover their payment & payout policys, all that information is on their respective website.
