Looking to show off your fantasy football genius this week? Try DraftStreet, where you can put together a new fantasy team each week and compete against other users for real money.
Right now DraftStreet has an NFL freeroll for MLB Trade Rumors readers, meaning you can take a shot at a chunk of the $1000 prize pool for free, with no strings attached. The large prize pool has me excited to follow along, and the top 100 get paid. Here's how it works.
The NFL freeroll begins Sunday at 1:00pm eastern time, so you have until then to create your team. You're given a $100K salary cap, and each player is assigned a price by DraftStreet. Your roster will cover these positions: 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 FLEX, and 1 Defense. You get points based on how your team performs through Monday night's game. The teams with the most points get the prize money. It's extremely easy to put together a team. Below is a screenshot of my roster in progress:
If you're interested, sign up and create a roster prior to Sunday's games (1:00pm eastern time). It's quick, easy, fun, and the MLBTR league gives you a free chance to win some of the $1,000 prize pool. If you enjoy the competition you can try other leagues (college football, for example) for free and earn credits, or deposit real money.
