NFL players file suit against FanDuel

NFL fans are used to playing fantasy football on a weekly basis with the chance of winning a big pot at the end of the season. But in recent years, we’ve seen the rise of daily leagues on sites like FanDuel and Draft Kings. Those daily fantasy sites generate big money, and not just for the fans who participate in them. In the first week of October, FanDuel spent more than $16 million dollars on advertising. But one NFL player is trying to put the brakes on FanDuel’s business model. Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is leading a class-action suit against the daily fantasy sports site, claiming it’s breaking the law by using his likeness for monetary gain. Attorney and sports legal analyst Exavier Pope helps us sift through the case and its potential implications.
