It’s here.  Finally.  The Finale.  The big tamale.  The Carne Asiata.

The ginormous 2013 Fantasy Football Millionaire Grand Final is this weekend, where the overall winner is going to win a million bucks.  A thousand thousands.  A million… ones…  Imagine making it rain that much, Pacman!  In a futile attempt all year, I unfortunately did not win a satellite ticket into the tourney, so I’m playing in a cheapy and not in line for the million.  But hopefully you have enough to enter the contest or have won any of the several satellites to get in there.  And if a member of Razzball Nation becomes a millionaire, maybe you buy me a couple crown and cokes?  Yup, I’m gonna be “one of those” if you’re a winner!

Please, blog, may I have some more?

I don't have enough spam, give me the Razzball email newsletter!

Ohhhh man, the playoffs have started and that means we’re only one week out from the huge MILLIONAIRE GRAND FINAL (!!) which is week 16 (not 17! which it used to be…) on December 22nd.  Christmas comes early this year!  I’m still without a ticket that I’m trying to pick up for $2, but I’m out there again, trying to nab my ticket in the $2 Qualifier.  There are of course all sorts of other satellite qualifiers you can hop into, but you need to hurry as the finale is only one week out!

DraftKings is back!  And after a week where I indeed followed Nick’s advice in playing Josh Gordon, I had a really solid outing but still not the top spot in my normal $2 Fantasy Millionaire Qualifier.  I still need my ticket!  Week 17 is only three weeks away now, with the WEEK 17 MILLIONAIRE FINALE less than a month out.  I need my fantasy sports Christmas Bonus!  I need to buy myself a treadmill with all this holiday eating… I’m feeling like Willis McGahee out there!  Damn, so many Browns references… Next we’ll start talking Tim Couch!

I hate you Chris Ogbonnaya!  Hate you so much.  Chris O-Bones was a hot pickup as a cheap RB for the PPR upside, but nooooooo…. Luckily with daily leagues, you can wipe the slate, officially never pick a guy again, and move on from your former tribulations.

We’re quickly approaching only a few weeks left until the WEEK 17 MILLIONAIRE FINALE, and I’m still eagerly trying to get my ticket on the cheap – so I’m rockin’ out in the $2 Fantasy Millionaire qualifier for Sunday’s games.  After feeling extremely confident last week and losing in a few other contests, I’m only sticking to the one lineup this time.  O-Bones be damned!  And if you’re jones-ing for DraftKings while watching on Turkey Day, there’s all sorts of contests just for the Thursday games to hop into.  So DraftKings it up and enjoy the Holiday!

DraftKings is back baby!  And we’re one week closer to that HUGE WEEK 17 MILLIONAIRE FINALE, and while I’m still struggling in my attempts to win my ticket on the cheap, I’m slowly improving.  Last week I was 234/862 and with another 233 players worth of improvement, a ticket is mine!  I’m sticking with the $2 Fantasy Millionaire Qualifier to try and win the Ticket with just a few peanuts.  That said, I’m feeling better about my roster than any other week, so I might branch out into some other contests for a nice payday.  Bring it in the Millionaire Qualifier, Razzball Nation!

As Nick and I discussed on this week’s Podcast, we’re jones-ing for a ticket into the huge Million Dollar Week 17 Finale DraftKings is hosting, where hopefully one of us can be crowned a millionaire.  You’d think entry into a contest where you can win a million bucks would be expensive.  You’d think you’d have to wear an expensive suede bathrobe and eat caviar whilst setting up your DraftKings lineup.  But no!  There’s all sorts of satellites you can enter, like the one Nick and I will be playing this Sunday that’s only $2 measly bucks!  The winner of the $2 Qualifier gets an automatic entry into the Millionaire Grand Finale, a whopping $1,500 value!  So I am pumped for this week at DraftKings and hoping to hippity-skippity like Charlie Bucket and get that Golden Ticket.

We’re heading into the second half of the season, but that means there’s still 8 more weeks to keep your DraftKings acumen razor sharp, or play your way through satellites, or just start crunching week 17 numbers for the HUGE WEEK 17 MILLIONAIRE GRAND FINALE DraftKings is throwing to end the regular season. I’m trying my hardest to win my way up, but guys keep getting hurt on my squad!  Good thing my DraftKings triage heals every week, and why playing in daily leagues erases the injury pessimism into brand new healthy optimism.  Start anew every week!

I’ll be playing in another $1-$2 contest and hopefully winning a big hunk of change to enter into some Millionaire satellites.  I still haven’t won anything big, except all my pride after beating Nick every week!  I think Nick is done…

My biggest reason for digging daily fantasy leagues, and DraftKings is by far my favorite, is I can brag right away.  As in, “HAHA Nick I owned you this week!”  While I still finished just out of the money, I had a solid team and can still brag to dear Nicholas.  If you didn’t catch it last week, Nick and I tweeted out our line-ups and my immediate response to his was “Josh Freeman?!” This just isn’t Nick’s year for football…  And with DraftKings you get immediate bragging rights unlike your yearly leagues.  Sure my 7-0 Writer’s League Team is going to do better than Nick’s 1-6 team, but hey, at least I know for sure I won DraftKings!

Nick and I are going to face off again in the same $1 challenge to see if I can go double-or-nothing against him.  We’re putting our teams together now and will tweet them out right before kickoff on Sunday as well.  Razzball Nation is of course invited to join and track our teams and see how you stack up against us in the same challenge.  And pick Josh Freeman again Nick!

If you missed the Razzball Podcast this week (and let’s be honest, why aren’t you listening!?), then the title might look a little awkward, but after a 24-hour binge of syrup consumption in various methods, Nick and I exclaimed we’re going to be facing off in a DraftKings contest this weekend.  We’re pitting against each other for ultimate Monday morning bragging rights on next week’s Pod.  So we’re going to pick a contest, I’ll tweet out which one it is, tweet out the link and include in the comments for everyone to join and play with us as we battle for Pod pride.  Then you can topple us both and battle for Comments pride.  Why DraftKings is great – instant bragging rights!

If you still haven’t tried out DraftKings, it’s a daily fantasy site (well weekly for NFL) and a ton of fun, you can play for as little as a quarter (yes, 25 cents not 25 grand Scarface!) with huge prizes even in the $0.25 and $1.00 Contests.  They’ve also got all sorts of qualifiers to get into their Millionaire Grand Finale, which runs in week 17 (and let’s be honest, most fantasy leagues will be done so it’ll be the biggest fantasy event for everyone in it) and pays out a cool, slick, boatload, something like that, million bucks.  Just for winning one week of football!  Can’t beat that.  So hop over and check it out today!
