It's time to talk about fantasy football again. SB Nation, The Beatdown's parent company, has entered into a partnership with CBSSports.com to create official fantasy leagues for our NFL blogs. This is a little different than previous years, we are using CBSSports.com Fantasy Football Commissioner, which is a paid service, but offers a ton of great features that go beyond the free leagues. It's understandable if some people want to remain in free leagues, but if you want to get in on some good fantasy action with other Beatdown members, and help this site out by participating in the promotion, follow the instructions below.
CBSSports.com is offering us a 50% discount on our leagues, meaning each league we create will cost $90. A league will consist of 10 teams, so the cost of to participate comes out to a measly $10 each. wThat's not too bad, is it? Here's how it will work, I'll create the first league and be the commissioner, and the first 9 other people who send their $10 in will be put into that league. After that one is full, I'll batch the next 10 together for the second league, the next 10 for the third league, and so on. When you send in your fee to let me know if you're willing to be a commissioner for a league. For every extra league we create, I'll need one person to be the Commissioner.
Why use a paid league when others a free? Well, for one you'll be supporting SB Nation and Baltimore Beatdown, and we are very appreciative of that. Also, CBSSports.com Fantasy Football Commissioner has some cool features.
