I spent a lot of time researching DFS platforms and can say they offer the best user experience I’ve seen,” said Terrell Owens. “I am really looking forward to challenging other players and expect to keep my name (terrellowens) in the top of the standings.”

“Athletes are the sole reason professional sports exist. Having them as an integral part of the Draftster experience is both a strategic decision and an issue of quality for us. We have great things planned and we’re stacking our decks for success,” commented Peterson.
