FanDuel in talks to acquire DraftKings

FanDuel and DraftKings are the two largest daily fantasy sports leagues in the world today and it looks like the war between the two could be soon coming to an end. This is because there are talks of FanDuel purchasing DraftKings and creating a merger.

Multiple sources are reporting the rumor at this point and it could be because of the major legal battles going on between the two companies and states across the country.

However, as Daniel Roberts of Yahoo! Finance reported, there have been talks of a merger between these two companies in the past and they have fell apart because they couldn’t decide who would be CEO of the company.

This would obviously be a huge deal between the two companies if it were to happen in the coming weeks. It would allow them to work a much larger market and start vying for bigger prizes.
