Arguably the most widely played Daily Fantasy Sport around the world is NFL, based on the National Football League in the United States.

Fantasy NFL is possibly the most intricate of all fantasy games, so it pays to know just how does NFL Daily Fantasy work?

Sites such as PlayON, Draftstars and MoneyBall provide many contests for Fantasy NFL, but the big money is at DraftKings.

If you are trying your hand at Daily Fantasy NFL contests for the first time, we will give you a simple guide here to help you get started.

Firstly, like all fantasy team sports, you are assigned a budget (commonly referred to as a salary cap), for which you have to purchase players, based on their assigned values, to fill the specific positions required.

At DraftKings you have a salary cap of $50,000 which you cannot exceed. You also have to select 9 players made up of 1 quarterback (QB), 2 running backs (RB), 3 wide receivers (WR), 1 tight end (TE), 1 defense and Special teams (DST) player and 1 flex. Your flex player is essentially a free pick at any player that is either a running back, wide receiver or tight end.

Because of the technical nature of the game, there are many events in a match that contribute to a players fantasy score.
