DraftKings, FanDuel to Drastically Cut Back on TV Advertising This NFL Season - After inundating sports fans with a barrage of commercials during last year’s football season, fantasy-sports websites FanDuel Inc. and DraftKings Inc. are cutting back sharply on their advertising, as they seek to rein in spending and limit the impression—partly created by their own ads—that they are peddling a form of gambling.  FanDuel Chief Executive Nigel Eccles says the company is cutting way back on commercials and rebranding both its website and its commercials.  FanDuel and DraftKings together spent an estimated $500 million on advertising last year.  Mr. Eccles said in a recent interview that his company is spending less than half of what it spent last year.
