Win $2,500 This Weekend Playing Fantasy Football

Posted by dave on November, 29th 2012

Thanks to FanDuel (and Bryce Brown), I’ll be here next month.

Did you know that people are making thousands of dollars just by playing fantasy football? I’ve become one of them. Well, for the past two weeks at least.
 
After two years of only dabbling in free contests known as ‘freerolls’ (no cost to enter, but typically a large field and small prize pool), I finally took the plunge and played in a couple $25 buy-in tournaments at FanDuel.
 
Turned out to be a good decision; I’m going to Cancun next week thanks to the money I won! More importantly, now my wife sees my fantasy football research as an investment (FYI, watching the RedZone channel all day counts as research).
 
If you want to give it a try, play the exclusive FantasyPros FanDuel contest this weekend. There’s a $25 buy-in and a total prize pool of $2,500. The winner takes home $1,000. The tournament is capped at a maximum of 110 entries, and the contest will run even if only a few people sign up. Yep, if you’re the only one reading this, your odds of winning are pretty darn good.

The contest is a salary cap game where you pick a lineup of players within the total budget allowed. The team that scores the most fantasy points wins. Similar to Yahoo’s Statracker, there’s real-time scoring so you can see where you stand in the leaderboard at all times. There’s new meaning to the phrase MNF Nail-biter when you’re on the cusp of winning thousands of dollars!
 
Whether you’re a serious player or just someone that’s looking for a way to cure your ‘I’m out of the playoffs’ withdrawal, daily fantasy contests are a great way to scratch your competitive itch. You may even win some much-needed cash for the Holidays. In fact, FanDuel has already paid out a whopping $50 million dollars this year!
 
Oh, and I almost forgot, a big congrats goes out to the finalists for our $10,000 FantasyPros FanDuel Championship (FPFC). The folks below qualified for this week’s exclusive final, where they’ll compete against each other for $5,000! That’s on top of what they’ve already won in our qualifiers. Good luck and congrats again to all the finalists!
