Compete against Derek Carty for cash (again)by Derek Carty
April 20, 2011
As you know by know, I've been writing at FanDuel and participating in their daily fantasy baseball leagues this season. On Opening Day, FanDuel ran a promotion for THT readers that allowed you guys to compete against me for cash. This Sunday, you'll have the chance to do so again. And once again, entrance is 100% free!
We'll be competing in a FanDuel MLB Salary Cap 35k contest where you have $35k to spend on any nine players you want at the following positions:
P, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF
The scoring system is points based:
Hitters: 1B = 1pt, 2B = 2pts, 3B = pts, HR = 4pts, RBI = 1pt, R = 1pt, BB = 1pt, SB = 2pts, Out = -.25pt
Pitchers: W = 7pts, ER = -1pt, SO=1pt, IP = 1pt
Prizes are structured as such:
1st $100 2nd $75 3rd $30 4th $20 5th $15 6th $10 Additionally, anyone who beats me, whether they finish in the top six or not, will receive $5.
If you still haven't taken the plunge into daily leagues, I'd highly recommend them. I've just started playing this year, but they're a lot of fun. This would be a great chance to get your feet wet, completely free, and with the added bonus of getting to compete against me and win cash! And if you need extra incentive, you will be helping THT make a little money just by playing. All you have to do is click here, sign up (takes less than a minute), and pick your team!
If you're not a member of FanDuel yet, if you sign up for the site with this link you'll get $10 deposited into your account for free.
