Dribble is the latest entry into the Daily Fantasy Sports sector with a mobile-first app built for UK Premiere League fans and fantasy players.
“It brings players the easiest way to craft dream squads and to see how they measure up against friends and random opponents,” the site claims.
Users bounce back and forth via push notifications with their opponents to choose 5 athletes.
They can then follow their athlete's performance and scores right on the phone as they enjoy watching the fixtures. The team with the most points at the end wins.
FantasyUp.com, offering an unsustainable ‘no rake’ business model for a relatively small site with limited funds, has begun to slow pay its customers.
RotoGrinders member sethayates offered this in regard to said complaints:
CBS Sports announced their entry into the Daily Fantasy Sports arena and could prove to be yet another competitor to the likes of DraftKings and FanDuel.
The powerful media company, flush with cash, can afford to offer something most others can not: rake-free contests.

CBS’ DFS Director Grant Griffin tweeted this week that they were not planning on featuring rake any time soon.
Does it make sense to have John Danks on your Daily Fantasy MLB roster today? Probably.
He has maintained an impressive .185 ERA versus the opposing Kansas City Royals batters, allowing just 40 hits on 216 at bats with three homeruns over that time period. That’s a lot of history to absorb to help us understand just how solid Danks has been against this opposition.
It won’t cost much to choose Danks being that he is just 6-8 on the season and hasn’t made it beyond the 6th inning in half of his last six starts.

The Washington Post on Tuesday published an article on how Daily Fantasy Sports has managed to become professional sports latest – what it termed – “addiction machine”.
The Post article follows a series of huge funding grabs by DFS industry leaders DraftKings and FanDuel in recent days.
Daily Fantasy Sports site DraftKings.com has obtained another $300 million in funding, it was revealed on Monday. The company also announced it plans to reward at least $1 billion in contest prize money.
The financing round includes investments from Fox Sports, Major League Baseball, the NHL and Major League Soccer, as well as Legends Hospitality (owned by the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys) and The Madison Square Garden Company (owner of the Knicks and Rangers). The Kraft Group, which owns the New England Patriots and Revolution, invested in a prior round.
