If you played and enjoyed FanDuel through SB Nation's partnership last year, you'll be pleased to know that the fantasy game will be back for 2015. If you didn't and you enjoy fantasy baseball, here are some details on this exclusive partnership.
Full disclosure: FanDuel has given me money to play their game. (It's not going to help. I'm pretty bad at fantasy baseball.)
To kick off the 2015 season, FanDuel is hosting an Opening Day contest with $6000 in prizes. First place will get you $1000 and four tickets to a baseball game. There is a $5 entry fee for this contest.
Here are the official FanDuel rules, which say, among other things, that you can't win real money in this game if you live in Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, or Washington state. Apologies for this to any residents of those states -- this isn't our choice.
If you haven't played or need a refresher, here's a short video that explains the game:
Once again, SB Nation is hosting a $6,000 one-day Fantasy Baseball league for MLB Opening Day on FanDuel. It's $5 to join and first place wins $1,000 and four tickets to a game. Here's the link to play.
Finally, I have been assured that an issue we had here at BCB last year -- the sidebars on FanDuel posts being clickable -- has been fixed and won't happen again. Give the game a try!
