Remind me what this is:
It's fantasy except instead of drafting one team at the beginning of the season they've broken it up into quick-hitting night leagues. Enrollment in our pool is free for MGoReaders, and this time there's $300 (up from $200) in the pool paid out among the Top 12 finishers as soon as each freeroll ends. Since there were way more interesting games on Saturday we chose to go with that day, although Michigan-Ohio State (and MSU, and like nobody else of any relevance whatsoever) plays Sunday.
This free contest will be salary-cap style drafting where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players. You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 3 forwards, 3 guards, and 2 utility players. Each CBB player has been assigned a price based on their expected fantasy performance. You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts this Saturday at 11:00am EST at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.
Note: you can't be eligible for prize money, even though entry is free, if you're from Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Vermont, or Puerto Rico.
About last time:
Unbwolverine rode Seth Doege and…Akeem Shavers? to victory, proving why did I waste so much gold on Venric Mark when Purdue was facing Indiana's rush defense. Also guys named Seth are can't-miss. Also this was a long time ago and you don't really care.
Number 1 don't listen to anything I have to say about baskertball. Number 2, I think the trick to hoops is look for bad defenses: South Carolina (plays Auburn) is 289th to KenPom. Texas Tech's D is nearly as accommodating and they face Kansas!
CLICK HERE to register for this week's league.
Everytime i click on the link it takes me there and than it tells me it is for draftsite partner only. anyone guide me into how to do this/
My name is Larry and I work for draftstreet. If anyone is having any issues or needs assistance on anything please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I used my account that i used before and i even made a new one and still everytime i sign up it says it is for draftsite partners only. Is anyone else still havin problems? also they havent taken out players who are out for the season or not on the team anymore, So Tim do it all Penn State guy is on there so dont think he is back playing. please help me figure this out i need to make some money.
i just made one. why doesn't the site allow you to draft players from michigan?
I was wondering the same thing...
Also, do we pick new players each week or are the players that we pick locked in for the season?
This is a one-off, so after tomorrow we'll have a winner of this round and if enough people came for this one they'll have another next month and that will be one day as well. But you can draft different teams any day, and there's other free leagues you can join there--you don't have to wait to join our leagues. The difference with us is it's free AND you can win money.
Because Michigan is playing on Sunday and this is a daily game. So I had to pick between having most college basketball players available, or having Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State available and like nobody else worth drafting. If everyone's going to have the same teams what's the point, right?
Makes perfect sense!
I didn't realize that it was a one day thing!
Signed up. Thanks for setting this up! I did notice a handful of teams unavailable though (SD State, Butler, Michigan, to name a few). It's not a big deal, and I was able to pick a winning team anyway, but is there a reason why some teams aren't available?
Those teams aren't playing tomorrow.
SD State is playing tomorrow. i know im complaining to the wrong person but i just want to gripe about the lack of schools and players available. I cant pick anybody from SD State or UNLV even though they are both in the top 25. that seems pretty stupid if you ask me (which no one did)
I'm not trying to be snarky, but we're talking about Saturday, January 12th right? Per ESPN's college bball scoreboard, SD State is playing Colorado St. at 8:00 PM, and Butler plays Dayton at 2:00 PM.
Ah. I guess it doesn't include non-major conference teams then?
There seems to be over 500 players even so. I mean...that's bigger than an NFL fantasy draft pool.
BCS schools only. If anyone knows any different let me know.
I feel stupid here but I'm not going to sign up if I don't understand. So it's fantasy basketball where you have a budget to draft 5 players, players are a set cost, and drafting isn't exclusive? And the points we're scoring are for one night? Or one week?
How do you enter this? i emailed draftstreet and they said i have to enter with Mgoblog to be in the contest and I dont know how to do it.
Can someone guide me to the place to do this or tell me step by step? I couldnt do it for football either and I want to win some cash.. HELP ME ENTER
Did you click the link in the OP? That's what I did and it was really easy from there.
thank you for all who tried to help. for some reason i could do it from my phone but not my puter. dont know why this worked but it did.
Use that and follow the instructions. If you have an account already you gotta remember your password.
Pick moderately high value players from teams expected to win by a blowout.
even if they are up by 30 this is actually a pretty damn good strategy.
THANK GOD I GOT OLIDAPO ON MY TEAM! excuse my caps.
I LOVE THIS GAME
Plumlee ruined me, not even a little mad!
So, did we get enough participation to do this again? Now that I know what the heck I'm doing, I'd like another shot! Congrats to the winners.
Is this going to happen again any time soon?
