Once again in 2016, SB Nation is bringing its readers a great opportunity to play some daily fantasy baseball and possibly win some money. Since 2014, SBN has partnered exclusively with the fantasy sports website FanDuel to give Gaslamp Ballers a chance to win cash prizes through daily fantasy baseball contests.
The folks at FanDuel have been kind enough to bankroll me so I could try it out for myself and be better equipped to help out anyone who has questions or wants to know more about it. But it's pretty easy. A couple of times a week I'll be promoting the SBN-wide daily contest by posting a link here on the blog and on Twitter. Prior to the first MLB game of the day, you can follow the link to join that day's contest and compete against other SBN readers for real money.
You'll get a set salary amount that you will use to create your own personal lineup for the day that includes a starter, catcher, first baseman, second baseman, third baseman, and three outfielders. You can play around and switch up your lineup as much as you want until the start of that day's contest (which is at the start of the first game of the day), when your lineup is locked and the competition begins.
For those who are into fantasy sports, but don't want to commit to a full-season fantasy baseball league, this is for you. You can pick and choose which days you want to play without repercussions if you go days, weeks, or even months between playing. You aren't locked into one lineup all season because you get to pick your lineup each day and you aren't limited to only the players who aren't taken by others. And our SBN contests only cost $3 per day, with the potential to win up to $8000.
If this is something you're even remotely interested in, click here to join today's one-day $100,000 contest which, again, is only $3 to join. And if you're worried about losing the money, especially as a first-timer at FanDuel, you're in luck! FanDuel is offering new users a deal where they will refund your money if you lose your first contest. It's literally a no-lose situation.
If you have any questions, hit me up in the comments here and I'll do my best to answer or find you someone who can. Happy playing!
