DraftStreet Partnership

by Bret Sayre


It’s certainly no secret that one of the fastest growing segments of the fantasy population these days is daily and weekly fantasy leagues—and we’ve all heard the arguments why. When Jurickson Profar, Kris Medlen, or Jarrod Parker get injured, and you have them on your rotisserie teams, it’s a long-term blow. However, in the world of daily/weekly games, it’s only a blow until you can select your next lineup. You can own Mike Trout one day and Carlos Gonzalez the next. The possibilities are endless, and it’s a whole other way to enjoy the world of fantasy sports.

Here at Baseball Prospectus, we’re proud to announce we’ll be partnering with one of the most recognizable names in this space for the 2014 season, DraftStreet.com. As part of this partnership, we’re going to be publishing strategy pieces twice a week on how to get a leg up in your DraftStreet league, anchored by long-time daily-game player Paul Sporer. If you’re looking for more information on DraftStreet's MLB product, here is some further information from their website:

Being a fantasy baseball winner for an entire season is great, but 162 games over six months is a long time to wait to be crowned as a fantasy baseball champion. With the fantasy baseball cash leagues at DraftStreet, you can compete today for a chance to be a champion tonight and win cash and prizes this evening. Yes, that's right. You can join up in a fantasy baseball money league in a day during the season, and you have the potential to be a winner that very night!

No matter what your skill set, there are many exciting fantasy baseball options to choose from at DraftStreet. Play heads-up in 2-player fantasy baseball money leagues, or enter large pools with over 200 players. Buy-ins range from $1 to over $1,000, or you can play free fantasy baseball leagues and earn Street Cred to use in the DraftStreet Store.

Drafting a fantasy baseball money team is easy with DraftSteet's salary cap style format. Just fill your roster while staying under the budget of $100K. DraftStreet sets the players' salaries based on fantasy production. Or maybe you like live drafts. You can sign up for an instant snake-draft baseball league and draft live against other users. If you like to keep your fantasy baseball games simple, try the Home Run Derby leagues where home runs are the only statistics that count.

So if you’ve been interested in checking out the daily/weekly fantasy game space, now is the perfect time to do it at DraftStreet. And to boot, first time depositors at DraftStreet will receive a 100 percent bonus up to $200. For Opening Day, there are two different ways to get involved:

MLB Freeroll Details:

  • Will most likely run freerolls every Friday of the season. This freeroll is for the games on opening day, which is Monday, 3/31.
  • $500 prize pool.

From Opening Day to the postseason, there are opportunities to win money every single day (well, except for during the All-Star break, but everyone deserves a few days off).

So test it out, see if it’s for you. We’ll be on there as well!
