Daily fantasy sports sites like FanDuel and DraftKings have risen in popularity in the past few years, taking nearly $3 billion in entry fees last year. The sites allow players to create fantasy rosters full of real athletes in exchange for an entry fee, a percentage of which is awarded to the player with the highest-performing roster. Critics say the games amount to illegal sports betting, and FanDuel and DraftKings were forced to cease operations in 12 states last year.

Even if FanDuel and DraftKings are legal, do you still think #DFSisGambling, or is it a #GameOfSkill? Scroll down for more perspectives and vote!
