Beat Me In Daily Fantasy Hoops On Draft Street

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

CSN Philly’s Marshall Harris Is A Big Fantasy Sports Loser

Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 7

I’ve never seen someone talk more trash in fantasy basketball than Marshall Harris of Comcast Sportsnet.

I mean seriously, there are barely 100 people in the world who enjoy fantasy basketball (I’m one of them), so talking trash in fantasy hoops is not like fantasy football.

Anyway, we had a fun little league this year, and Marshall smugged his way through the year. Once shouting down a league member on Twitter while espousing his fantasy basketball skill and use of the waiver wire.

There were only four teams of the 12 in our league who made the playoffs, and I met Marshall in the first round. It was a two week playoff matchup, so there are no flukes.

I’m happy to say I defeated Marshall in six of nine categories, and he lost. Even though he said no fantasy team with Kevin Durant and Chris Paul could lose, they lost.

Marshall even tried a sort of lame-o move in the last day of our matchup, dropping two of his most important players (George Hill and Evan Turner), for players who happened to be playing Sunday to help save his season.

Eat it, Harris.


Predictably, Marshall says he lost because he “wasn’t playing all his guys.”
