  2. As with poker and horse racing, skill can help fantasy-sports bettor, but there's also luck of the draw.
  3. State lawmakers and Gov. Cuomo exceeded their legal authority in approving these contests.

  5. Legislation approving fantasy-sports betting passed in middle of night, at end of 2016 session.
  6. Fantasy-sports companies target millennials not attracted to bricks-and-mortar casinos.
