If you haven’t heard already, there’s a new way to play fantasy basketball that turns the season long grind into quick hitting one-night leagues, that let you win cash, every single day. Draft a team for one night of games and get paid out as soon as the games end that night. The opportunity to win big without the stress of a full season. DraftStreet.com is at the forefront of this new trend in the fantasy world and to start the season off right, they are giving us an amazing promotion: a FREE one-day fantasy league with $200 in prizes, exclusively for readers of The Campus Socialite and The Knicks Blog.
This free contest will be salary-cap style drafting where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players and you can draft at any time, at your convenience. You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 2 forwards, 2 guards, 2 centers, and 2 utility players. Each NBA player has been assigned a price based on their expected fantasy performance and with the games being played that night, there is no shortage of star power. If your looking for Knicks players, Amare is going for $16,392, Melo for $16,912, and Chandler for $11,539 in their game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Monta Ellis, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, Joe Johnson, Rudy Gay and our old boy David Lee are all on the block as well. The whole January 12th schedule is below.
The best part? Myself, Daniel Caufield, and all the guys here at The Campus Socialite plan on playing as well and nobody is taking it lightly. We have a reputation to uphold so if you want any chance to contend, you’re gonna need to put the time in. Roster research, matchup analysis, injury reports, the works. Our fans are some of the savviest Basketball guys around so the competition will be stacked.
Have what it takes? Sign up for the Draftstreet Fantasy Free Roll right here. The action starts Thursday January 12th at 7:00pm ET at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.
