Earlier this week, we mentioned that DraftStreet was ramping up their offer to theScore readers, including an increased prize pool and a fun new element to their weekly fantasy competition called Beat The Experts.

Not only is there $2500 in guaranteed prize money this time, but each entrant can win an additional $5 simply by beating theScore. The payout will work like this:

For a chance at the $600 grand prize, and the opportunity to prove you know more than us about fantasy football, the cost to you is only $11.

Just to make things even easier for you, we’re also offering three tips for selecting your team this week.

  1. Always be on the lookout for a player set to ascend because of an injury. Prime examples this week are Harry Douglas (Julio Jones is out for the season, and Roddy White could sit out Week 7, too), and Jarrett Boykin (another situation with possibly two receivers out in Green Bay between Randall Cobb and James Jones).
  2. Don’t overlook a player on a poor or under-performing team. Although he’s likely out this week, this often happens with Cecil Shorts, who’s been a garbage time hero as the Jaguars get spanked (averaging 82.2 receiving yards per game). This week fellow Jags receiver Justin Blackmon will be targeted even more often after his 326 yards and 19 catches over just two games.
  3. Try to find value, not bargains. Coming into the season, Chris Johnson looked like a great option, but he’s been horrible and his low cost in a salary cap league might seem like the type of flyer you’d like to take. However, don’t forget that he’s a running back who’s averaging only 3.1 yards per carry, running against the 49ers this week. Stay away.

As always, selecting a team is very easy. You’re given a $100,000 salary cap, and each player is assigned a price by DraftStreet. You select a roster of players to cover these positions: 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 FLEX, and 1 Defense/Special Teams. Once you’ve selected a roster for the coming week’s action, you receive points based on how the players on your team perform. The teams with the most points get the prize money. It’s just like a regular fantasy league, only you’re playing week-to-week.

Your roster must be decided before 1:00 PM ET on Sunday, so you have until then to create your winning team.

Since 2010, over 250,000 players have tried Draftstreet, earning more than $60,000,000 in winnings. To get in on the money, all you have to do is follow these three steps:

1.  Sign up at Draftstreet;

2.  Pick your favorite NFL players; and

3.  Beat theScore.

Over the past few weeks, DraftStreet has offered theScore readers an exclusive opportunity to enter a $1,000 fantasy football contest for absolutely free. It’s been fun, and also a little bit embarrassing – it ends up that the Detroit Lions defense and special teams aren’t exactly a fantasy dynamo.

By now, you’ve likely learned two things about DraftStreet: 1) Its weekly salary cap fantasy football games are incredibly easy to play; and 2) theScore’s weekly picks are incredibly easy to beat. Both these lessons will prove valuable this week because DraftStreet’s offer has been ramped up to include more money and a fun new element called Beat The Experts.

Not only is there $2500 in guaranteed prize money this time, but each entrant can win an additional $5 simply by beating theScore. If previous weeks are anything to go by, this shouldn’t prove too difficult a task. This is how the payout works:

For a chance at the $600 grand prize, the cost to you is only $11. If you deposit right now, DraftStreet will also offer a 100% bonus for those who add up to $200 to their account.

Victor Cruz is at it again. The New York Giants wide receiver is the very definition of a fan’s player.

It’s what I listen to on a daily basis, before a game, when I’m in the car, going home from a victory. Sharing my music means being that much closer to my fans. The fans are what keep this sport going. They keep seats filled and the excitement going.

All 16 NFL stations are available at iTunes.com/Pepsi, where you can choose to hear favorite songs from the following players:

  • Victor Cruz, New York Giants

We’re at that point in the football season where teams are finally coming to grips with which aspects of their offensive and defensive systems are working, and which parts aren’t. What sometimes starts as clunker develops into a well-oiled machine around this time of year. This is the benefit of trial and error.

If you took advantage of the the exclusive opportunity that Draftstreet offered last week, you’re already an efficient expert when it comes to weekly NFL fantasy competitions. Sadly, all of the oil in the world wouldn’t have allowed us to become efficient enough to crack the top ten, at least not with the Detroit Lions as our defense and special teams. We ended up finishing 312th out of 1,619 competitors.

Not bad, but our 142.42 points paled in comparison to the winner’s score of 205.66. While we found great value from the dual rushing and receiving threat that Pierre Thomas offers, we overpaid for the same from Reggie Bush. Not helping matters was our gamble on Danny Amendola not paying off. It was a valiant effort, but not quite enough.

Hopefully, you fared better, but if not, don’t fret. Draftstreet is once again extending an exclusive offer to theScore readers that will allow you entry into a $1,000 contest by selecting a fantasy team for Week 6 of the NFL schedule. Your entry in the contest – if you use this link – is absolutely free.

There are guaranteed cash prizes for 100 entrants, including $100 for first place. All for free.

Selecting a team is completely intuitive and incredibly simple. You’re given a $100,000 salary cap, and each player is assigned a price by DraftStreet.

Once you’ve selected a roster for the coming week’s action, you receive points based on how the players on your team perform. The teams with the most points get the prize money. It’s just like a regular fantasy league, only you’re playing week-to-week.

Here’s how our team is shaping up for Week 6:

This week, we went with the Eagles on defense and special teams because as bad as they’ve been, Tampa Bay’s offense has been worse. Once again, we’re hoping for some value from Pierre Thomas who as a true flex player has actually accumulated more yards receiving than rushing so far this season. We finally caved and took the very expensive Peyton Manning because that matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars is just too appealing.

 If you think you can do better, give it a try. Your roster must be decided before 1:00 PM ET on Sunday, so you have until then to create your winning team.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through the NFL season. If you’re playing in a season-long fantasy competition, you probably already have a pretty good idea of how the rest of the year is going to go. Obviously, anything can happen. You could start 4-0 and lose every remaining week, or you could be 0-4 and still come in first. It’s just not very likely that either of those scenarios take place.

That’s part of what makes Draftstreet’s weekly draft such a great game to play. You never get stuck with a bad draft day decision because you can completely change your entire roster on a week-to-week basis, selecting from a pool that includes every NFL player. If you haven’t played it before, this is the perfect time to try Draftstreet.

Right now, Draftstreet is extending an exclusive offer to theScore readers that will allow you entry into a $1,000 contest by selecting a fantasy team for Week 5 of the NFL schedule. Your entry in the contest – if you use this link – is absolutely free.

This week, we punted on defense and (appropriately enough) special teams to go top heavy with a three pronged attack at running back with Reggie Bush, Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch. We’re hoping for some value from Pierre Thomas who as a true flex player has actually accumulate more yards receiving than rushing so far this season. We also held off the temptation to pick up a very expensive Peyton Manning, instead opting for Sam Bradford against Jacksonville’s defense and the always in-style Phillip Rivers.
