For the past two years, SB Nation has partnered with the super awesome people at FanDuel* for daily MLB fantasy games. After a brief hiccup this year -- not sure why it happened, but I was told to write this post ASAP -- they are back for 2016! There are games for all sorts of sports, but since you're on a baseball website during baseball season, we assume you're going to want to play baseball games.
For those that have played FanDuel before, things are mostly the same. The interface is way easier to operate than those hooligans at DraftKings, and there's even an app now in case you want to play while you're
in the bathroom away from your computer.
HOWEVA, things get even better for those who have never played before. FanDuel guaran-sheeds that you will win money the first time you play, or they will refund your entry fee from your first game! The fine print may be a bit more complicated than that, so click this handy link to check out their official rules. The big disclaimer: if you live in Arizona, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New York, or Washington, you cannot deposit or play for real money.
If you're interested in jumping right in, click here to get started! There is a one-day tournament handing out $125,000 in prizes, including $10,000 to the first place winner. The entry fee? Just $2.
If you're the visual type, here's a video (that may or may not work) from last year that explains how to play.
Still excited? Jump into the action!
*FanDuel gave me a bit of walking around money on their site, so I have to (a) call them super awesome, and (b) tell you they gave me money. Or, in the words of the immortal Petey Pablo, "I drink it, and they're paying me for it."
