Okay, the Week 6 NFBC/Fanball $10/50 Teams Contest is now live on Registration and ready for action. After selling out the first two weeks, we finished with only 42 teams last week. Let's keep this fun contest with great prizes alive a little longer by selling it out this week.

The NFBC/Fanball $10/50 Teams Contest consists of 50 teams at $10 each and we pay the Top 3 finishers. The league champion will earn a FREE 2022 Rotowire Online Championship entry valued at $350. We'll also pay $50 to the runner-up and $20 to the third place finisher. This is a payout of 84 percent.

We'll use the Fanball scoring system and lineup of nine players. Rosters must consist of players from at least two different MLB teams from at least two different MLB games and no more than five players from one team is allowed.

Here's the rules and scoring:

No more than three teams per person is allowed. Here's the signup link:

Good luck all and enjoy the competition. For $10, you could win a FREE $350 entry in 2022 and possibly the $125,000 (or higher) grand prize next year. Not a bad $10 investment, if you ask me!! :D

Congrats to Dave Shovein of Macomb, Michigan as he won the Week 6 NFBC/Fanball $10/50 Teams contest last night and the FREE 2022 Rotowire Online Championship entry. Dave topped a field of 40 teams to win the top prize as we fell short of selling out for the second straight week.

Dave finished with 173.5 points to win the free entry with James Martin finishing three points behind in second place and Kyle Johansen finishing third. James won $50, while Kyle won $20. Great job everyone and congrats to our winners.

Post by Greg Ambrosius » Mon May 10, 2021 1:34 pm

Okay, let's give this at least one more try so that we can give away one more FREE 2022 Rotowire Online Championship entry. We haven't sold this contest out the last two weeks as we've finished with 42/50 and 40/50 spots in Weeks 5 and 6. If it goes lower this week, this will be the last attempt for a bit.

But I have confidence that we'll generate enough interest to improve on those numbers. Remember, $10 can win you a FREE 2022 Rotowire Online Championship entry and a shot at next year's $125,000 (or higher) grand prize. Lineups lock at 7:05 pm ET on Tuesday, so secure your spots now, set that winning lineup and enjoy the fruits of your labor tomorrow night.

Here's the rules and scoring:
