FanDuel Diary: Daily Leagues A Challenge

FanDuelSH_300x250

Congratulations to “tuuckk” whose team scored 263 fantasy points to win the $200 first prize in our Saturday Freeroll. It was a tough beat for “muggsy205,” who finished a strong second with 261 but earned nothing in the winner-take-all payout format. My team limped home 88th out of 146 entries, as “sure thing” Varejao was outplayed by Chris Kaman, who ironically had bombed in my Friday Freeroll lineup to cost me at least a consolation prize. Week 3 has been very

Another $350 freeroll tonight; and Sheridan dispenses advice

Benjamin

Our fantasy basketball challenges with DraftStreet.com have been a huge success, and they will now be a fixture each and every Friday for the remainder of the NBA season. And better yet, there is an extra one taking place tonight (and once again, there will be a $350 prize pool). I have been quite humbled in my efforts to win the first two freerolls, finishing 50th in the first and a crushing 149th in the second. (There were more than 350 entrants
