FanDuel Diary: Another Freeroll On Saturday, $200 First Prize

Congratulations to “mattbell21” whose team scored 309 fantasy points to win the $50 first prize in our Friday Freeroll and to everyone who won a prize from the $250 pool. My team finished a respectable 31st out of 228 entries, just 7 points out of the money. I blame Chris Kaman.

Thanks to all those who entered. We get to do it again tonight, with a twist. Saturday’s Freeroll has a $200 payout, winner take all.

It’s easy to join FanDuel (if you haven’t already) with no deposit or credit card required, the rules are simple — pick a 9-man team without exceeding the salary cap — and it’s a great challenge that’s fun even if you don’t win.

The chart at right is for tonight’s leagues. That is, the ones that close at 7:00 PM Eastern, like our Freeroll. FanDuel has other Saturday contests that close at 12:30 EST and include the matinee between the Raptors and Celtics, whose players aren’t eligible in the later-closing pools.

Down $64.50 from my $100 Week 3 bankroll with just two days remaining, it’s about time to win some cash. Here’s my tentative lineup, which can (and probably will be) be edited until the deadline. Good luck with your picks!
