Playing fantasy sports
Although variety wise the ESPN app isn’t as impressive as FanDuel or DraftKings, but it nevertheless is worth mentioning. Because of its excellent articles and advice, but also because of their interesting potential for growth. We don’t know if they will ever level the popularity of a DraftKings or FanDuel, but a company the size of ESPN definitely has the potential to. Especially with the US being in the process of legalizing sports betting in every state, that could be an interesting thing to see evolve.
