This was gonna be your year. You actually took it seriously this time - Did the research, looked at all the team situations, checked the average draft position, picked out your sleepers.
You finally came out of your draft, feeling like your team has a shot at competing. And now, after two weeks, Mixon and Guice get injured, Damien Williams is losing all of his touches, and Cam Newton apparently doesn't run the ball anymore.
Well, the season was fun while it lasted. But just because your team is screwed early on doesn't mean your fantasy season has to be over. With FanDuel, you can jump right back in and compete like nothing ever happened.
FanDuel offers weekly leagues with very little commitment and a chance to make real money, really quickly. Instead of doing a full draft for the whole season, you simply pick your lineup for that specific week.
Instead of a draft format, you have access to the entire league, with each player having a salary value. The only restriction is that the total salary value has to be below your weekly cap. So instead of overpaying for Mahomes, you can just pick whichever QB is playing the Dolphins that week and save yourself some money. Other than that, scoring is the same as it would be in any other league, so you can treat it like any other fantasy match up when you're screaming for a garbage time TD or two when the game is already a blowout.
That's pretty much all there is to it. You get the opportunity to start earning back the money you already lost in your regular league. Plus, signing up is super easy and quick - All you need to do is add in your name and email address, and provide your Social Security Number so that they can secure your winnings. They'll even offer a bonus for first-time users. You can go weeks without even having to put your own money in (assuming you win a few times).
Don't let the fun end just because your first-round pick blew up in your face. You can still go through the usual agonizing intensity of a fantasy Sunday, even if your team has no shot at the playoffs. Not only that, you don't have to wait till the end of the season to get your money. You can cash out your winnings at any time by simply connecting your bank account (or more realistically, you can use them to play again next week).
