(NEWSER) – His job is literally a fantasy: Drew Dinkmeyer makes his money by betting on fantasy games, and he's not exactly struggling. The 31-year-old quit his work as an investment analyst in June so he could concentrate on fantasy sports, and he's making comparable money. "After a few years of playing, I started to have income levels that were commensurate with what I was making in the financial world," he tells NPR. But Dinkmeyer may not be playing what you're playing: He plays "daily fantasy sports," where instead of being stuck with a team for a season, the action is compressed into a single night. So instead of laying down one bet per season, he makes daily bets. (The Wall Street Journal has a good rundown on how it works, and how "advanced statistics" play a part.)
