Bleacher Nation has been given another opportunity to host an exclusive, one-day, FREE fantasy baseball contest through DraftStreet.com, this Friday, June 17. For those of you who didn’t play last time, this is your chance to win some cash. For those of you who played last time and got stomped – like me – this is your chance for redemption.
The best part? The total payout for this free contest is $150 – and five people win cash. And, by participating, you’re supporting Bleacher Nation – which would be all kinds of appreciated. Think of it this way: you get 365 days of free content from me, and in return, I ask only that you sign up for a free, cash-winning fantasy baseball contest. Sounds fair to me.
Ok. So what is the contest?
It’s a one-day fantasy baseball showdown based on MLB games this Friday, June 17 (beginning with the Cubs/Yankees tilt at 1:20 CST (2:20 EST)).
Here’s how you play: First, sign up for free at DraftStreet. It’s easy. Then, from there, you fill your roster (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 U, 2 SP, RP, P) using a budget of $100k. Player salaries are set by DraftStreet based on fantasy production. So, for example, if you want to put Roy Halladay on the mound, it might cost you $16k, which means you’ll have to find some bargains to fill out the rest of your squad. The contest runs on Friday using Friday’s games, so here’s a tip: pick players who are, you know, actually playing on Friday.
Sign up now for free. Build a team (you can adjust your roster up until the 2:20pm (EST) game starts (which is the Cubs/Reds game, for the record)). Then check out the scoreboard when the games start on Friday, June 17, and watch your team win you cash. Or watch my team destroy yours. It’s that easy, and it’s a heck of a lot of fun.
The sooner you sign up, the more time you’ll have to tinker with your lineup, which is a big part of what makes this so much fun. Just putting it out there. Feel free to talk your team up in this or subsequent posts on the subject.
Better still, if you make a deposit and use the code “bleacher25,” they’ll give you $25 in free bonus cash.
