Fanduel Daily Fantasy Basketball Games Are Now Open!!

Fanduel has their daily fantasy basketball games up and running!  These are live daily fantasy basketball contests played for real money.  Games only last for one night’s NBA action and you draft a new team and pick new opponents everyday.   You can deposit funds onto the site with Paypal or a Credit Card.  I’ve been playing these for a couple of years and play under the screenname ‘Tippy’, so feel free to say hello or ask me any questions if you see me in the FD chatroom!  Here’s how to get started:

CLICK HERE to register for your FREE account.   Registration only requires that you provide your name, a valid email address and choose a screenname and password.  Very simple.

Next step:  Once you are registered, go to the Game Selection Lobby and select the game you wish to enter.  This is a screenshot of the Lobby:

Final Step:  Fanduel’s games range in price from $1 to $500 and you can play against a single opponent or enter a tournament with 5, 10, 20 or unlimited number of opponents.  Once you decide which game you prefer, click the enter button and you will then be presented with the following screen to build your team:

Once your team is built, just click the green Enter button and you are ready to go!  If you want to change your picks at any time, you are allowed to adjust your team as much as you want all the way up until the first NBA game of the night tips off.  After tipoff it’s time to sit back and enjoy the night’s NBA action and track your daily fantasy team with Fanduel’s realtime live scoring.  When you win your game, Fanduel will deposit your winnings into your account a couple of hours after that night’s NBA action is complete.

REGISTER NOW FOR FREE and enjoy daily fantasy action!

New Posting Schedule for the Fantasy Basketball Playoffs

Baseball season is almost here and my posting at Fantasy Basketball Daily will now only consist of fantasy basketball playoff advice a couple of times a week for the rest of the regular season.   I got out of the flow by missing last week and I’ve got to miss a few days this week too, so I figure it’s best to move to weekly playoff advice now since I was going to scale back posting anyway once opening day of baseball season got here.

I’ll also be maintaining the blog and putting up weekly posts in the offseason about the NBA draft, trades, starting position battles, etc., so keep me in your favorites tab!

I’ve enjoyed posting the Pre-Game report for all the daily fantasy cash game players out there and I hope you guys have a great remainder of the season.  Don’t forget that all the daily sites like Fanduel, Daily Joust and DraftStreet will be having daily fantasy baseball cash games and tournaments, so definitely check them out!  I’ll be playing daily, so say hello if you see me around  the chatrooms.

Good luck the rest of the season and I’ll hit you guys up with some fantasy basketball playoff advice later this week.
