SB Nation and FanDuel partner for Opening Day contest

SB Nation and FanDuel are partnering again, and joining forces to bring you a one-day, $6,000 fantasy baseball contest on Opening Day.

SB Nation and FanDuel have partnered for the 2015 season, and as part of that partnership SB Nation is hosting a $6,000 one-day Fantasy Baseball league for MLB Opening Day on FanDuel. It's $5 to join and first place wins $1,000 and four tickets to a game.

If you're not familiar with FanDuel, they host daily fantasy baseball leagues. Instead of drafting a team that you think will out-perform the rest of your league over the course of six months, you put together a lineup for only that day's games. There's a salary cap to stick to, adding another layer of strategy to the mix.

Blow your roto draft and you're already looking ahead to next year. Blow your FanDuel selections and you get another chance tomorrow.

Here's a message straight from the horse's mouth:

*Last year FanDuel gave me $50 to use on the site. I enjoyed the strategy and quick turnaround. Sadly I have been unable to grow my bankroll. If you win big, feel free to lord it over me.

If you have questions about any of the rules or specifics on how the daily contests work, you can probably find the answers to them here.

As I mentioned at the top, SB Nation is hosting a members only contest on Opening Day. The entry fee is $5 and there will be a prize pool of $6,000, with $1,000 and four tickets to a game going to the winner. You can enter here.

I'm investigating the possibility of using Ryan Raburn at all nine positions, because I've got a hunch he's due.
