We have some great news for everyone here at Talking Chop and SBNation. The daily fantasy sports website FanDuel and SBNation put together an exclusive partnership. FanDuel had sent me over some money to play with so I was familiar with the system and I have to say it is a really awesome way to be involved in fantasy sports on a day-to-day basis for any of you other fantasy nuts out there.
FanDuel is a pioneer in the daily fantasy sports industry and hands out up to $6 million in prizes on a weekly basis.
Above is a quick tutorial on how to play. It is pretty simple, there is a salary cap that you have to abide by and fill out your entire roster within your budget. You get a starting pitcher, a catcher, a first baseman, a second baseman, a shortstop, a third baseman, and three outfielders. You can play in one on one leagues or leagues with thousands of other players. The goal here is to get enough activity among Talking Chop readers that we are able to set up our own regular league for real money.
So, time to play right? Here is the link to join a one-day $18,000 fantasy baseball league for tonight's games. It costs $2 to join the league tonight and first prize gets $2,000. If you have any questions please leave them in the comment section or feel free to reach out to me directly. Thanks!
