If you’re anything like me, you’re having a tough time figuring out what to do with yourself today since this will be the first Sunday since early September that we won’t have any football to watch! (and no…the Pro Bowl doesn’t count. That’s not real football.)
There will be plenty of hockey and basketball to watch, but let’s be honest…that’s just not all that fun unless you’re playing a season-long fantasy league. If you missed the boat on getting in a fantasy basketball league, I have the perfect solution for you: FanDuel Fantasy Basketball!
If you’re not familiar with daily gaming, it’s a fun (and legal) way to pick a one-day team and put your roster up against other users (and hopefully win some cash in the process). If you’re a new user on FanDuel, go here to register for an account and deposit $10 using PayPal (I know for a fact that you’ve spent $10 on worse things). Then, all you need to do is choose a $2 or $5 matchup in the draft lobby, pick your roster while staying under the 60K salary cap, and then sit back and enjoy watching your stats compile all night! I promise…it’s a ton of fun and an easy way to win some quick cash if you know what you’re doing (of if you listen to my lineup tips below…)
I’ve done all the work for you identifying guys for tonight by looking at trends and matchups and all that jazz, so you all you need to do is go in and pick your players I’ve listed below (and yes, I’ll be playing the exact same lineup, so we can ride or die together on this one):
Point Guard: Rajon Rondo ($7,900)
Point Guard: Jeff Teague ($5,700)
Shooting Guard: Dwyane Wade ($8,700)
Shooting Guard: Jamal Crawford ($5,500)
Small Forward: Kevin Durant ($9,900)
Small Forward: Kyle Korver ($4,700)
Power Forward: Elton Brand ($4,900)
Power Forward: Anthony Davis ($6,300)
Center: Marcin Gortat ($6,300)
How am I doing?
Last night, I went 4-3 and am now 9-5 since I started posting these articles.
That’s all I’ve got for you today, so go to FanDuel and sign up for an account to get started! I’ll try and keep posting my plays every day (and track them too…I wanna be transparent) so you guys can follow along.
If you’re still trying to wrap your head around daily gaming and strategies, here’s a post I wrote for BetVega that gives you some tips on how to win on FanDuel.
