We actually hit our target of 16 teams last week (!) so FanDuel expaned the league to 22 teams. The cost to join is still $2 and the top 4 teams will win a prize. Once again feel free to let any friends of yours who play or might want to play to check it out since we are pushing the limit higher again this week.The deadline for entry is a few minutes before the 1PM kickoff on Sunday. Remember that each week we will have a new league so there is also no commitment to play beyond week 12.
If you haven’t tried FanDuel out yet its basically a weekly fantasy football league where your team is made up within the constraints of a salary cap. They do have free games to try out and if you click through the link you should be able to see how the game works and how you pick a team without needing to sign up. By signing up through OTC FanDuel will also issue you a deposit bonus to try out the games. It’s really fun and I definitely recommend it to anyone that can spare a few dollars each week. Our OTC is still a small league so its a good type of league to learn this type f fantasy game in as well before making the leap to more expensive games.
In last weeks game I was able to just hold on for the win with 147 points primarily behind Mike Evans of the Bucs. For this week my receiver strategy I tried worked out quite well, but I came up way short in the running back department. I had high hopes for Steven Jackson based on opponent and lets say that was a big swing and miss.
Danfrommadison came on strong late with the big performance from Le’Veon Bell and would have won had the Patriots used Shane Vereen more on Sunday night. Ocho_evilo pulled up third with what may have been the most balanced team of the week and tokyola took the final prize spot of the week.
Congrats to all the winners and good luck to the players this week!
