Do you have a few bucks laying around that you could potentially turn into a life changing experience…? Are you interested in turning $10 into hundreds of thousands based on your fantasy baseball knowledge? Are you feeling as excited as me about this opportunity? If you aren’t, you should be.
It’s easy to get your chance at part of the $24,000 prize package on Friday from Fanduel.com. Not only do you get a shot at that prize package, you also get a shot at winning $200,000 with an all expense paid trip in Las Vegas. All you need is $10 bucks and some fantasy baseball knowledge.
$1 Million Daily Fantasy Baseball Championship on FanDuel
Each weekly winner will then be flown to Vegas, all expenses paid by FanDuel.com, and given a shot at the $200,000 grand prize. That’s right. Win two weekly matchups and you’ve got $200,000 coming your way. And don’t think that you have to enter hundreds of times to win. And don’t think that you have to enter hundreds of times to win. Jordy Nelson last year entered once, and he ended up in the DFBC Finals in Vegas because he won his weekly matchup. He then proceeded to win that year’s grand prize of $100,000… from a $10 entry fee.
So how do you get involved? You go to FanDuel.com and sign up for today’s contest that also gives you a chance to win part of the $24,000 in prizes for Friday’s event. You then put together your salary cap team (the rules are very simple and can be found at the top of the page if you follow the link). If you win, it’s Vegas here you come. If you don’t, there are still plenty of cash prizes that you can pocket in the tournament for your mere $10 entry fee (there are 250 cash prizes handed out).
Who should you play Friday? Well I can’t tell you what to do, but I can give some suggestions on players you should be looking at for inclusion on your roster. I can also give you some warnings about guys that just don’t look like they have a pleasing matchup. Those of you who aren’t going to play in the tournament should still click on the video. You get a shot to see how handsome I am, and you get to hear me talk instead of reading my lame writing. Remember this as well. You don’t have to be playing in a daily fantasy baseball league to derive value from the advice I’m giving – you still need to know who to have in your lineup, right? Here’s a video with my thoughts.
Note: Tim Hudson has had his start pushed back to Saturday, so the matchup with Ryan Howard will have to wait until then.
