If you have visited the baseball or football side at SB Nation, you should already be aware of FanDuel. They are part of the fastest growing sector in fantasy sports. For those wondering, daily fantasy sports sites are legal because they are viewed to be different from gambling. As to where gambling is considered to be a game of chance, sites like FanDuel are considered to be of the skill variety.

Attention: "In order to deposit money to play paid entry games you must be 18 and able to represent and warrant that you are not a resident of any of the following states: Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana or Washington."

Unfortunately, many Pelican fans won't be able to place monetary bets if Louisiana is considered to be your domicile. Yet, FanDuel does offer free games which are perfectly legal, if one is so inclined. HERE are additional rules that are worth reading if you are interested in participating.

If you've never played fantasy sports, FanDuel has a simple how-to-guide that walks you through the process.

Reportedly, there have been some rather large winners in their history so it's worth a look for those who enjoy making a bet or two on sports. You may play every day, or once in a blue moon. The frequency of play is entirely up to the individual.

In future articles, The Bird Writes will offer fantasy advice by analyzing favorable matchups, who's currently hot/cold, how injuries will affect the performances of others, etc.

Stay tuned!
