Some of the best Daily Fantasy games that you can play online are Rapid Fire and Rapid Fire Max.

The Rapid Fire game features a matchup of five player sets in each active sport. You will need to select three or more winners who score more Fantasy points, and you win money. You can choose to play for as little as $1.10 to win $2.00.

When you check off your five players, you will want your Fantasy players to amass more points than the other player, who will then be the computer’s lineup. You can check live scoring throughout the evening to chart the progress of your game.

If the matchup should end up a tie, a push is won by the house. Your player must outscore the other player to be considered a win, so for example a 2-2-1 night is a loss.

Personally, I am a huge fan of this game. Like betting on sports, or flipping a coin, there is a winner or a loser.

It is a 50-50 proposition on the selections. There isn’t a ton of luck needed in this game, and the truth of the matter is there isn’t a ton of research that goes into the game.

However, in the Rapid Fire NBA or NHL games, it is a good idea to double- and triple-check the injury report each day to make sure your option is officially in the lineup, and not a late inactive or scratch.

If your player is scratched, unfortunately that is good for zero points.
 
However, you can still win, as if the player you are playing against should miss a shot or commit a turnover in basketball, or have a minus-rating in hockey, amassing negative fantasy points, a win can still be had. Still, it’s best not to risk it. Plus, you’ll want to do your research just as you would in any other fantasy-related game.

Since it is just five matchups, check out the player vs team history, check out the game logs for each player. Also, be sure to check NBA team defensive statistics. If a team is playing a defensively challenged team like the Los Angeles Lakers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers, etc., that is obviously much more favorable than facing the likes of the Memphis Grizzlies, San Antonio Spurs or other strong defensive teams. For hockey, you'll want to pick on the clubs with terrible goaltending, and be sure to take advantage of injuries. Replacements who move up to top-six forward positions can pay off handsomely, which also saving salary to spend across other positions.

In the Rapid Fire MAX game, the rules are the same as the regular Rapid Fire game. However, you must go a perfect 5-for-5 picking the matchups to win.

You can win a lot more money, but the degree of difficulty is also that much more.
