The DraftKings gift card online provides the same service for internet gambling. DraftKings Sportsbook is one of the biggest sportsbooks in the United States, along with FanDuel. By introducing gift cards, DraftKings will now have the opportunity to grow its brand. Numerous retailers are now offering DraftKings gift cards to customers.
DraftKings Sportsbook has added another method to its roster of deposit methods. Players in New Jersey can now use Play+ Prepaid to fund their accounts on the online sportsbook.
Play+ Prepaid has elements of both an e-wallet and a prepaid debit card. In order to fund Play+ Prepaid, bettors can use their Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account.
The funds then proceed to the player’s account in much the same way as a prepaid debit card. But unlike a prepaid debit card, it is possible to withdraw the funds from the DraftKings site directly into the player’s Play+ Prepaid account.
So, in that, the method is similar to electronic wallets such as Neteller. Play+ Prepaid should give players far more flexibility for funding their accounts and moving money around.
For the first month of its existence, players could only fund their accounts using Visa, MasterCard, or a bank transfer. Not only did these restrictions limit the player pool, but it also made withdrawing funds from the site much more difficult.
Credit cards on sports betting sites are also a dodgy proposition due to the financial atmosphere in the US. Since the passage of the UIGEA and the crackdown on gambling websites, credit card companies are far more likely to deny those kinds of transactions.
Thankfully, DraftKings addedPayPal to its list of approved deposit methods back in early September. The e-wallet gave many more players a way to deposit and join the NJ sports betting crowd.
This most recent addition is, therefore, a very welcome one for players.
Play+ Prepaid will certainly bring more players to the DraftKings site in the near future. However, in truth, DraftKings hasn’t really noticed its lack of methods causing many problems.
DraftKings Sportsbook has dominated the New Jersey online sports betting scene since it launched in the first week of August. Buoyed by a three-week de facto monopoly to begin its journey, the app’s monthly NJ sports betting revenue is more than three times that of its closest competitor.
Of course, the first-to-market advantage only gets a foot in the door. DraftKings has kept and increased its market share due to a slick, innovative app with an intuitive interface and a lot of flexibility. Cheap poker table.
For DraftKings, the site’s banking options had been a bit behind its competitors, so adding Play+ Prepaid is the right move.
The 2020 NFL regular season has come to a close, and now things really start to get fun in DFS. With every game a nationally televised, must-win affair, these are the times when fantasy football studs truly distinguish themselves on the field, and as always, it’s imperative to pinpoint the sleepers and under-the-radar value plays on DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo. By attaining valuable production at discount prices at one position, managers afford themselves proven weekly commodities in other roster spots.
My job, all 17 regular-season weeks and now into the postseason, is to scan the vast projections of RotoQL and pick my favorite sleepers and value picks. If you checked this column out last week, you would have benefited from our advice to plug in the following players (all Week 17 prices and fantasy points production via DraftKings):
These players all vastly outperformed their price tiers, with some even leading their positions for the week. By finding such great values at modest costs, DFS managers afforded themselves studs like Tom Brady, A.J. Brown, and Jonathan Taylor in other roster spots.

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens (DK: $6,600 FD: $8,200)
It sure feels tempting to go with the quarterback on the other side of this matchup given how Lamar Jackson has seemingly returned to his superstar form, but the glaring price differential between the 2019 Comeback Player of the Year and the '19 MVP probably won't be coupled with a substantial disparity in production. Tannehill put up 28.4 fantasy points against Houston in Week 17, and he almost hit Black Jack when these teams met in Baltimore back in Week 11. He's the safest bet with the highest ceiling in this price range.
Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears (DK: $5,700 FD: $7,800)
It's safe to say Brees has fully recovered from his punctured lung and 11 broken ribs just in time for a tough opening-round matchup with a solid Bears D. The 42-year-old future Hall-of-Fame QB has eclipsed 20 fantasy points in two of the past three weeks, and he scored 19.6 against the Bears in Chicago on Nov. 1. The upside may be limited with Brees against Khalil Mack and company, but you won't find a better floor for under $6K DK/$8K FD.
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns (DK: $6,100 FD: $7,500)
Remember when the Steelers were 11-0? After a nightmarish second half of the regular season, you can acquire most of Pittsburgh's skill-position players at discount rates. With Big Ben's penchant for turning the heat up in the playoffs and the fact that Cleveland ranks just 25th in fantasy points allowed to QBs, RotoQL's model really likes the the veteran signal-caller. Pittsburgh certainly won't be running its way to the second round.
JK Dobbins, Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans (DK: $6,600 FD: $6,800)
From Week 11 on, Dobbins has been one of the better offensive talents, never mind rookies, in the NFL. He averaged 13.6 PPR points in Baltimore's five games between Nov. 22 and Dec. 27, then exploded for 28 points in the Ravens' thrashing of the Bengals last week. Tennessee ranks 26th against RBs in fantasy, so it's surprising to see the Ohio State product priced under $7,000.
Jonathan Taylor (DK: $7,900 FD: $8,800) and Nyheim Hines (DK: $4,700 FD: $5,600), Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills
Obviously, the top Colts back you want this week will be Taylor, who ran roughshod over the Jaguars last week with 253 yards and two scores. Taylor finished his debut regular season with 1,169 rushing yards and 12 total TDs (not to mention 36 catches on 39 targets for 299 yards). Grabbing Hines in one RB spot might afford you JT in the other, forming an Indy stack against a vulnerable Bills run defense. Buffalo ranks 22nd against RBs in fantasy and surrendered 140 ground yards in two of its past three games. Hines has been the security blanket for veteran Colts QB Philip Rivers, and there should be plenty of dump-offs and screens in Buffalo on Saturday. There's no shame in picking two members of the same backfield.
Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers (DK: $6,700 FD: $7,700)
Since Chubb returned from injury in Week 10, he has been one of the most impactful running backs in football. He has averaged 17.6 PPR points per game in that span and put up 16.8 last week against these very Steelers. The second-year back seems matchup-proof at this point, and he's well worth these prices.
Marquise Brown, Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans (DK: $5,400 FD: $6,300)
‘Hollywood’ Brown had a brutal first half of the season, directly correlated with Lamar Jackson’s early struggles in his MVP encore, but the second-year wideout has finished strong, scoring six receiving touchdowns in Baltimore’s final six games. He averaged 15.9 PPR points in that span and will likely continue his torrid pace against a lowly Titans secondary that gave up the second-most fantasy points to receivers this season. RotoQL projects Brown to score 12.5 points but lists his ceiling at 33.7. Go Hollywood on your opponents and grab the dazzling speedster.
Chase Claypool, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns (DK: $5,200 FD: $6,100)
The antithesis of Brown, Claypool had an incredible first half but turned into a Lost Boy after Week 12. Big Ben backup Mason Rudolph must have traveled to Neverland to retrieve the rookie receiver because they connected on five catches for 101 yards and a touchdown against the Browns in Week 17. The Steelers get to play Cleveland again this week, but this time Roethlisberger will be back under center. Claypool caught all four of his targets when he and the veteran QB first played the Browns this season back in Week 6, and he finished with 81 total yards and a score. There’s a very good chance he finds paydirt for a third time against the Browns, so $5,200 seems like a great investment opportunity.
Gabriel Davis, Buffalo Bills vs. Indianapolis Colts (DK: $4,000 FD: $5,000)
Another promising rookie, Davis has formed a good connection with MVP candidate Josh Allen. His catch count and total yards from scrimmage may not turn heads, but his red-zone and per-catch numbers paint a more promising picture. He has a 15.4-percent red-zone target share, and has hauled in seven touchdowns in 12 red-zone opportunities (58 percent). He also averages 17.1 yards per catch, which ranks fourth in the NFL. The Colts have a strong secondary (and defensive unit in general), but things could get dicey if Indy cornerback Rock Ya-Sin misses a second straight game due to concussion. Veteran CBs Xavier Rhodes and Kenny Moore would likely be stuck with the unenviable tasks of covering Stefon Diggs and John “Blur” Brown. If Davis gets open for a long one, the third-year stud QB will find him, just like Buffalo QBs did for 107 yards and a TD last week.
Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (DK: $4,900 FD: $6,400)
The breakout tight end has made the most of his three nationally televised games this season. He caught all four targets in a win over Dallas on Thanksgiving. One week later, he grabbed all nine targets for 98 yards in a Monday evening upset over Pittsburgh. Last Sunday night, he grabbed three passes for 37 yards in a playoff-clinching win over the Eagles. He scored a touchdown in all three of those prime-time games, and he’s caught 20 combined passes in his past two home games. I would be surprised if Thomas registered anything less than 50 yards and a score against Tampa Bay, who rank 21st in fantasy points allowed to tight ends. Side note: Grab this dude in your fantasy drafts next season!
Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears (DK: $4,600 FD: $5,900)
Cook has quietly been the Saints’ most dependable receiver since Week 13, with 15 receptions on 23 targets for 219 yards and three touchdowns. He caught five-of-seven targets for 51 yards and a score when these teams first met in Chicago back in Week 8, and he should be busy again this week at home. He has a 10.9 PPR average over the past five games, and RotoQL lists his projected ceiling at 23.4 points. Cook at $4,600 looks like an absolute steal.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams (DK: $2,700 FD: $3,600)
Color me shocked that DFS sites list Seattle in the bottom-half of the 12-team slate this wild-card weekend. The Seahawks have been a legitimate defense since their midseason acquisition of pass-rusher Carlos Dunlap, and they have logged nine or more fantasy points in five of the past six weeks. These teams just met in Week 16, and Seattle held LA to 216 passing yards and nine total points with Jared Goff. Now the Rams might be stuck starting John Wolford, who listed his LinkedIn industry as “Finance” up until his start in Goff’s place last week. It’s a great story -- and Wolford did get the Rams the win last week -- but he will surely make mistakes in a playoff game in Seattle if Goff still doesn’t get the thumbs-up. This is a layup of a value pick, in my humble opinion.
