Bleacher Nation has been given the opportunity to host an exclusive,* one-day, FREE fantasy baseball contest through DraftStreet.com, this Friday, April 13.
The best part? The total payout for this free contest is $250 – and six people win cash. And, by participating, you’re supporting Bleacher Nation – which would be all kinds of awesome. 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 (and I say showdown, because you better believe I’m playing, too) based on MLB games this Friday, April 13. I did a few of these last year, and it definitely makes that day of baseball all the more exciting. It’s not like a whole season of fantasy baseball, and you don’t even have to understand fantasy baseball to enjoy playing (for the record, I don’t play fantasy baseball).
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.
Sign up now for free. Build a team (you can adjust your roster up until the 1:05pm ET (12:05 CT) game starts (Yankees/Angels)). Then check out the scoreboard when the games start on Friday, April 13, and watch your team win you cash. Or watch my team destroy yours. It’s that easy, and it is a lot 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. So, you know, sign up today.
*Note, because of the exclusivity, only folks who sign up for Draftstreet via Bleacher Nation (either now, or last year) can participate in this particular contest. If you signed up for Draftstreet via another method (another site, for example), you can still participate in a free contest, it just won’t be this particular free one. You’ll see what I mean when you sign in. If you aren’t permitted into this contest and you think that’s an error (i.e., you DID originally sign up for Draftstreet via Bleacher Nation), just send me an email and we’ll get it straightened out (brett AT bleachernation DOT com).
