Ex-NIU running back sues FanDuel, DraftKings for using name

CHICAGO (AP) Former Northern Illinois University running back Akeem Daniels is suing two daily fantasy sports sites in Chicago federal court alleging they used his name to generate millions of dollars in revenue.

Daniels filed the lawsuit Wednesday against Boston-based DraftKings and New York-based FanDuel, The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle reported (http://bit.ly/1ZVf2Dq ). He is seeking class-action status to represent all college players and $5 million in damages, saying the sites' use of student athletes can lead to point-shaving and fixing.

FanDuel said Thursday that it had no comment on the lawsuit. DraftKings didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment sent early Thursday.
