Wish You Had A Muscle Hamster On Your Team?

by dave | Contests | Nov 8th 2012

Doug Martin is not exactly a “buy low” candidate right now. You’d probably have to give up half your team and naming rights for your next born child to wrestle Martin away from his smug owner.
The good news is, thanks to the weekly fantasy football leagues at FanDuel, you can own a dream team of your favorite studs and sleepers each week…and win money for it.


This is exactly what AlexSyntex did last week in our $10,000 FantasyPros FanDuel Championship (FPFC). In addition to winning a share of the weekly $1,000 prize pool, Alex won a seat in our Week 13 Final where he’ll compete against 25 finalists for $5,000 in cash prizes.

Here’s Alex’s team from Week 9. The Muscle Hamster and Chicago Defense headline a lineup of great picks. Nice job Alex!
If you think you can pick a good lineup for Week 10, you should…

To play in the contest, simply select players that you think will perform well this week, while staying within the total budget available (the “salary cap”). If your team produces the most fantasy points for the week, you win. It’s that simple.


For our $10,000 FPFC, each week the top 20 players win cash prizes and the top 5 players win a seat in our Week 13 Final. The 25 finalists compete for $5,000 in cash prizes. Get your lineup in now before you forget (you can tweak it later).


These weekly salary cap games are a great way to test your fantasy football skills. Since you’re selecting a team for just one week, luck plays a much smaller role in the outcome (season ending injuries don’t kill your whole season).


Looking for more ways to compete and win prizes? You can also scratch your competitive itch by playing our start/sit accuracy game called Pick Five. You’ll be able to see how you stack up to the experts and the game is completely free to play. Play Pick Five now.
Thanks for playing and good luck this week!
