100 Fantasy Football Tips in 100 Days, Day 93: Winning the DraftDay NFL Expert Challenge
DraftDay is running an awesome contest called the “NFL Expert Challenge.” They’re going to put 16 fantasy experts, myself included, against 16 qualifiers. You can qualify for the tournament at this link. It costs $2.20 to join the tournament, or you can get in for free by depositing and using the code ‘EXPERTNFL.’ There are $1,500 in prizes up for grabs. If you get into the main challenge, here are the experts you’ll face.
So what’s the preferred strategy? Early in the year, I use my season-long rankings to uncover undervalued assets. Matchups are of course important, but I’ll be bullish on Shane Vereen, Cecil Shorts, and all of the other players I like in season-long fantasy. If you want some extra help to qualify and take down the grand prize, you can check out my 2013 Weekly Fantasy Football Package. It has projections for season-long and daily owners, weekly content, and even optimized lineups that you can use in this contest.
