Week 13: Can You Beat Sigmund Bloom from FootballGuys?

by dave
Nov 30, 2010

Don’t let the “nice guy” photo or his “stay-at-home dad” bio fool you – Sigmund Bloom from FootballGuys is a shark when it comes to fantasy. As the co-host of The Audible, one of the most popular podcasts in the industry, Sig helps his listeners stay ahead of the competition…even while they’re “working” at the office. He also shares a wealth of advice through his articles at FootballGuys (as a subscriber, I know this from firsthand experience). If you need more up-to-the-minute advice, you can join the almost 4,000 people that follow him on Twitter.

Now that I put Sigmund on a pedestal, it’s your job to knock him down! Do so and you’ll receive a $5 bounty. Finish in the Top 8 of our competition, and you’ll win a share of our $500 prize pool! The bounty is in addition to our prize pool, so if Sigmund does poorly we’ll be in the poor house! Read more about our FREE contest…

To enter this exclusive FantasyPros contest, please follow the following steps:

  1. If you’re not a FantasyPros member, please register now (free).
  2. Go to the contest page hosted by our partner, FanDuel.
  3. Pick your players and enter the contest (free).

That’s all there is to it. You can visit the contest sign up page for more information, including the breakdown of the $500 prize pool for the top eight finishers. And remember, you just have to beat Sigmund’s team to win the $5 bonus!

This contest uses a salary cap, so there’s some strategy involved with picking your dream team. But don’t worry about your initial player selections – you can always go back to edit your lineup, as long as you do it 5 minutes before the kickoff of the first game on Sunday (Thursday’s players are excluded).

We want to thank Sigmund Bloom for graciously offering to be our Featured Pro for Week 13. We also want to thank our sponsor, FanDuel, for running the contest for us again.

Good luck this week!
