Bleacher Nation has been given the opportunity to host an exclusive,* one-day, FREE fantasy football contest through DraftStreet.com, this Sunday, September 23. That’s right, I said FOOTBALL. This time around, I thought it might be fun to change things up, with football season in full swing.
The best part? The total payout for this free contest is $300 – and 15 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 football contest. Sounds fair to me.
Ok. So what is the contest?
It’s a one-day fantasy football showdown (and I say showdown, because you better believe I’m playing, too) based on NFL games this week (excluding the Thursday night Giants/Panthers tilt). We did one of these each of the last few months on the baseball side, and now we get to have a blast with football.
Here’s how you play: First, sign up for free at DraftStreet. It’s easy. Then, “join the league,” and put together your team. It is a salary cap style league this time around. The way it works is you’ve got to fill out a roster, and you’ve got a certain amount of cash to work with. You can pick the superstar if you want, but he might cost you a huge chunk of your budget. So choose your players wisely…
The contest runs starting with Sunday’s 1pm ET games, so you just have to sign up and have your team set by then.
Sign up now for free. Build a team (you can adjust your roster up until the games start on Sunday). Then check out the scoreboard when the games start on Sunday, September 23, and watch your team win you cash. Or watch my team destroy yours (which, like, I haven’t been able to do yet…). 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 this year 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).
Another note: residents of some States are not eligible to play, so if you’re blocked out for that reason, my most humble apologies.
