Fantasy lacrosse is back and this time in the form of a daily fantasy platform created by Flow Fantasy Inc., the creators of last summer’s fantasy lacrosse challenge that coincided with the PLL Championship Series.
“I know how passionate the college lacrosse community is, and I wanted to leverage what we built last year for the PLL and tap into that energy and excitement,” CEO and founder of Flow Fantasy Grant Schwartz said.
The format will differ from last summer’s fantasy lacrosse challenge in that users will have a salary cap and be tasked with building a lineup comprised of college players from the ACC, Big Ten and Big East. Similar to other daily fantasy platforms, users will have to pay more to start top talent like Michael Sowers or Chris Gray, while finding top performances from undervalued players to rank above their peers.
To coincide with the Flow Fantasy Daily D1 challenge, Lacrosse Playground will producing a variety of content, including a weekly recap show titled the Fantasy Lacrosse Focus hosted by Ty Cunnington, the Fantasy Lacrosse Podcast hosted by Dan Neubert and a weekly competition between fellow lacrosse podcasts The Post Game and Crease Dive.
“Fantasy lacrosse continues to evolve every season. Just a couple years ago, Adam Moore and I were doing our PLL and NLL fantasy lacrosse challenges by hand. Last summer Grant and Spencer created an automated platform with capabilities fans have come accustom to in fantasy sports,” Editor-in-chief of Lacrosse Playground Hutton Jackson said. “Flow Fantasy Daily is just another step in the evolution of fantasy lacrosse and we’re excited to see how Grant and the Flow Fantasy team continue to innovate.”
Participants will be able to compete against their friends by creating their own public or private contests over a given period of time, as well as go head-to-head with the hosts of the Fantasy Lacrosse Podcast, The Post Game and Crease Dive through official weekly contests.
“I look forward to seeing how daily fantasy can change the way the college lacrosse community interacts with the sport,” Grant Schwartz said.
