Someone always wants something from you, right? Usually it’s something like – give me X dollars and I’ll give you X advice. Hey, we fantasy experts gotta make a living. This is NOT one of those times. I’m going to describe to you a way you can play fantasy football – for FREE. Not just that, someone will win $10,000. Not just that, but 20 total folks will win money – and remember it’s FREE to play. If that isn’t enough of a reason to get pumped up, how about this – you get to take on The Oracle and Jeff Mans of FantasyAlarm.com. I know that last part did it for you, didn’t it?
Here’s what I’m talking about.

It’s a weekly game that follows a salary cap format where you select 10 players each week. You want to start Tom Brady in Week 1? Go for it. You like Peyton Manning in Week 2? You can do that. You interested in Drew Brees in Week 3? No problemo. You can change your lineup on a weekly basis so there is no need to worry if your RB1 goes down with a season ending injury – you can just choose someone else next week.
