Prizes include free subscriptions for the 2010 season to the most popular fantasy football pay sites. RotoWire, Fantasy Football Trader, The Huddle, Draft Sharks, Sports Grumblings, Fantasy Pros 911, Football Docs, Dynasty Rogues, and Art of the Fan are the official sponsors of the Fantasy Football Nerd Draft Challenge.
"We've partnered with the best of the best to get free memberships to the world's best pay sites for fantasy football. Winning your leagues next year should be a breeze!", said J. Joseph Dyken, founder of FantasyFootballNerd.com.
Users can select among 1,000 active NFL players. The salary cap in the contest prevents users from drafting the best players at each position, thus forcing them to make some bold predictions as to who will produce the most points at a given value.
Player values are based upon the consensus rankings from FantasyFootballNerd.com which takes the "wisdom of the crowd" to a new level by aggregating the fantasy football rankings of multiple fantasy football websites.
The Nerd's innovative draft rankings system provides a consensus ranking for overall draft rankings as well as positional rankings. In theory, having 19 heads is better than 1. It's useful for seeing what the experts from the major fantasy football websites are thinking and projecting. FantasyFootballNerd.com brings that collective intelligence into one location.
Users have until September 9, 2009 to create or update their team. The Challenge closes on that date, however they'll be able to check the Leaderboard throughout the season to see where they are in the standings.
