Playmaker is a dedicated place to discuss fantasy sports, enabling fantasy managers to own their identity and grow their following. We want to make it possible for Fantasy Managers to earn money by playing fantasy sports. Whether it’s by monetising your following or by competing for prize pools, with Playmaker you’ll get paid to play fantasy sports. In the not so distant future, we want Fantasy Managers to earn enough money that playing fantasy sports full-time is possible, much in the same way that eSports made it possible for gamers to make a living. While we are initially starting with one game (“FPL” played by 7 million+ people every year and growing) we will replicate this format across all of the major fantasy games, making it possible for any fantasy manager, no matter the game, to build a following and earn a living from playing fantasy sports. Our longer-term vision is for fantasy sports to replace sports betting as the primary way to increase the enjoyment of watching live sports.
