Our Holiday Gift to You

With the help of our sponsor, FanDuel, we’ve now given away over $50,000 this season through our free Beat the Expert Contests. This is despite some great performances from our featured experts (see chart below).
 
For Week 15, we’ve decided to give you a break from competing against the top pros in the world. Instead, you get to take on little ‘ole us, the FantasyPros Team!
 
So why is this a Holiday gift? We’ve had a test account going for the contest each week to make sure it runs smoothly. Let’s just say we’re getting really tired of the, “Oh no, you finished X,XXXnd” email that we get from FanDuel each week!
 
If you beat our score, you’ll receive a $5 prize. If you place in the Top 11, you’ll get a piece of the $1,000 prize pool. It only takes a few minutes and it’s completely free. Enter your lineup now »
 
If you’re curious, here’s how the ‘real experts’ have done. Pretty amazing showings from Andy Behrens (Yahoo! Sports), Justin Sablich (New York Times), and Chris Wesseling (Rotoworld) — they each placed within the top 10% of all contestants. Overall, the experts are winning about 70% of the time.
 

 
It’s great that we’ve been able to promote and support so many wonderful charities through this contest. Speaking of giving, this holiday season we’re really thankful for all the support and positive feedback we’ve received from you all. This site would not exist without the loyal fans that keep us motivated to build helpful tools, the great fantasy professionals we’ve had the privilege of working with, and our understanding wives that let us call fantasy football a job. Thank you all for giving us so much!
 
Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season! Now don’t forget to enter this free contest so you can win some holiday cash. Good luck!
