money catThe NFL season is upon us, and, although this is a Chicago Cubs blog, there’s no reason we can’t enjoy a little fantasy football on the side.

BN’s partner DraftKings is hosting a one-day fantasy football contest this week, based on the first week of NFL games. You build your team using a $50,000 “salary cap,” and compete against other folks based on how your players do on Sunday. The contest starts Sunday at 12pm CT, so you’ve got until then to make, change, and tinker with your roster.

This week’s┬ácontest costs just $2 to enter (or it’s free with your first deposit – AND they’ll match you dollar for dollar with bonus money on that deposit, up to $600(!)). But don’t let the small entry fee fool you, because this contest is a whopper: there’s a $100,000 prize pool. The overall winner gets $10,000.

So check out the contest and get in on the fun.
