After a few years of playing it, I finally feel like I have some idea of what I’m doing in weekly fantasy basketball.
The natural progression is trying daily fantasy basketball, which I found out, is a different animal all together.
In any case, the fine folks over at Draft Street were all like, “hey play over here, we will make it fun and give people a bonus if they beat you!” And I was all like, “but I’m terrible, are you sure you want to do that?” They were all like, “sure, we’ll give it a try!”
Here’s the deal, play tomorrow’s (Wednesday) $50,000 NBA Big Score. The top prize gets $10,000, and there is $50,000 total in prizes. The entries are capped at 2,500.
The roster at the bottom of this post is what won on 2/12. The top 300 people win at least SOMETHING.
I will be playing. My team name is SpikeEskin (creative!). If you beat me in that contest, Draft Street will throw you an extra $5 into your account. Also, a special this week is they will match your first deposit up to $200 (so if you put $50 into your account, they will throw in a bonus $50).
So to recap:
1. Sign up at DraftStreet.com (USE THE LINK BELOW!) and make a deposit
2. Join the $22 entry $50,000 fantasy NBA league
3. Draft your favorite NBA players from that Wednesday’s games
4. Place in the top 300 for a share in the $50K
