NCAA Says College Players Could Be Suspended For Playing Daily Fantasy Sports



It looks like the NCAA is ready to crack down on student athletes for playing daily fantasy.

Today, NCAA Executive Oliver Luck told a group of college athletic directors in Dallas that punishments were in place for athletes found gambling on college sports, including those participating in daily fantasy sports.



Technically DFS sites like Fanduel and Draftkings are considered “games of skill”, which is why they don’t fall under the Federal jurisdiction for gambling, but it seems like the NCAA has their own definition for gambling.

I doubt that any student athletes will challenge the NCAA but it seems like it would make an interesting case in court if they did.
