The World Cup will offer plenty of excitement in its own right, but playing daily fantasy with DraftStreet increases the ante even further.
For the World Cup games played on Friday, June 13th, you can enter a $2.00 game in which you can pick a roster of two forwards, two midfielders, two defenders, one goalie and a flex player for a chance to win from a $2,000 prize pool. First place will win $320, while the top-150 rosters will be paid.
With $100,000 to spend on players, we selected Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Ramos and Gerard Piqué of Spain, Arjen Robben and Daley Blind of Holland, and Alexis Sánchez, Claudio Bravo and Mauricio Isla of Chile.
It may be difficult to actively root for Robben, but he represents a good value at $15,900 relative to other top forwards. Isla is also a great value at $5,490, while Ramos and Piqué are two defenders that Spain relies upon to win aerial duels on set pieces.
