Jason Lee:
Andy good morning. So many of us love fantasy sports. Tell us about Daily Fantasy.

Andy Behrens:
At Yahoo Sports we are so excited to introduce the Daily Fantasy product. It's basically the same as your season long fantasy league just compressed into one day right? You get the same thrill of setting a roster, but this is day after day after day. You get to construct a new roster each time out. You get a budget from which to acquire a couple of pitchers, eight position players. For me it's just a great way to compliment a season long fantasy portfolio right? Like all the players you missed out on draft day...Max Scherzer maybe I didn't get enough shares of...maybe I don't have enough of Kyle Schwarber. I can add them in Daily and play them all year.

Jason Lee:
Why do you think fantasy sports have become so popular?

Andy Behrens:
You know for me it's just sort of the original social network right? Like I have all my old college buddies are in one league, all my high school friends are in another league, a couple of old jobs of mine we still have fantasy leagues that we maintain. So just a great way to maintain relationships among people who all have a common interest whether that's the NFL,Major League Baseball, whatever. It's just a great way to get together once or twice a year.

Jason Lee:
The Phillies of course, worst team in baseball right now. Any Phillies worth having on your roster?

Andy Behrens:
No there's not a lot of hope there outside of...of course Franco has been brilliant and we look forward to owning him for years and years and years, but other than that obviously a rough season.

Jason Lee:
How do we get involved in Daily Fantasy?

Andy Behrens:
Just head over to Yahoo Sports.

Jason Lee:
Alright Andy Behrens from Yahoo Sports we appreciate the time. Thanks very much. And Eye Opener continues.
