Here at WFNY, we are always looking for new and relatively exciting ways to interact with our readers. We realize that season-long fantasy sports leagues — especially the free variety — can tend to go by the wayside as the year wears on. Yet as the annual demand for fantasy leagues continue, we try to find ways to not only keep readers engaged, but provide them the chance to win prizes. Which is why we have decided to partner up with FanDuel, the home of daily and weekly fantasy sports leagues.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will have the opportunity to provide readers of WFNY the chance to not only compete with the writers in fantasy sports, but with each other with the opportunity to win up to $500 in prizes. The best part? Each challenge is not only free to readers, but they last one day. Choose a player who pulls a hammy? Regroup next week and select a different one. It’s that simple.
On April 27 (this Friday), we’ll have our maiden voyage. Again, this is a one-day contest; readers can pick their players in a salary cap format (choose wisely) and track their progress as they see fit. It’s a points-based format so we won’t be taking into account potentially lumpy stats like ERA or BA, but all settings are attainable on the custom WFNY FanDuel page.
All you have to do is click on said custom WFNY FanDuel page, sign up, pick your team and you’re good to go. I’ve already created my team. Let’s see what you got.
