FD_RWFC_2016

It seems like only yesterday we were begging for the season to start, and here we are in Week 5, about to say goodbye to (roughly) the first third of the season. If you are like me, the first month of football hasn’t gone so well for you from a DFS standpoint. Not to worry, however, as there is still ample time to put on a good showing in the RotoWire & FanDuel competition and secure your shot at daily fantasy football glory. The rules of the contest are as follows:

  • 10-week competition hosted on FanDuel
  • $10 entry (max five entries each week)
  • Compete against other users and three FanDuel experts (Jeff Erickson, Derek VanRiper, Kevin Payne
  • Finish above the experts, win an entry in the Week 11 Freeroll with over $5,000 in prizes and RotoWire subscriptions up for grabs
  • Each qualifying week acts as a double-up with the top 250 doubling up their cash
  • This is not a continuous competition, so you can enter every week, and you don’t have to have participated in Week 1 to enter this week’s competition
  • There is no limit on the amount of entries you can win for the championship round, so start racking them up this week if you haven’t already
  • You can sign up for this week’s competition here
