$50,000 Fantasy Basketball Contest on Wednesday Night

DraftKings is offering a great opportunity for Celtics Life readers to celebrate the start of the NBA season by winning a share of $50,000 on Wednesday night. Simply draft your own fantasy basketball team to help start the season off right.

Unlike regular fantasy basketball leagues, DraftKings allows you to pick your own team each and every night of the NBA season. Missed out on LeBron in your snake draft? Not a problem. Worried about Rondo’s arm? Wait to draft him until he is healthy. Want to watch the games but don’t have anyone playing? Then draft a new team every night.

To win, all you have to do is pick the 8 NBA players you think will score the most fantasy points during the NBA games on a given night. Draft 1 PG, 1 SG, 1 SF, 1 PF, 1 C, 1 G, 1 F and 1 Utility player while staying under the $50,000 Salary Cap. Each player is assigned a salary based on their expected performance. A sample lineup for Wednesday night is:

If you make the right decisions you can walk away with $5,000 when the games end on Wednesday night.

As part of our partnership with DraftKings, all Celtics Life readers get a FREE entry into the league with their first deposit. Readers who have already deposited can submit an entry for only $2.

Also, if this is your first deposit at Draftkings.com you automatically get a 100% deposit bonus up to $600.

Daily fantasy basketball is the easiest way to add excitement to the start of the NBA season for every Celtics Life reader.
