    The NFL fantasy season may be over but the NBA season is in full swing!

    We’ve lined up an exciting set of contests on the awesome DRAFT platform for members itching for competition.

    There are two bracket style tournaments featured on DRAFT that will pit fantasy players against each other in a series of H2H elimination rounds, culminating in a final showdown!

    Grinders New Years Tipoff:
    Structure: 32-man H2H bracket
    Buy-In: $100 – not for the faint of heart!
    Prizes: The top 4 finishers earn prizes, with the winner taking home a cool $1,500! All participants in this contest also get a RotoGrinders t-shirt! Details below.
    Start: Monday, January 2nd, 2017 6:50PM
    Finish: Friday, January 6th, 2017 6:50PM

    Grinders Hoop Classic:
    Structure: 128-man H2H bracket
    Buy-In: $10
    Prizes: The top 20 finishers earn prizes, with the winner walking away with $500!
    Start: Monday, January 2nd, 2017 6:30PM
    Finish: Sunday, January 8th, 2017 11:30AM

    As an added bonus, players on DRAFT that sign up using our links/promo code that enter the $100 tournament get a free ticket to the $10 contest as well!

    Additionally, all Grinders members that sign up using our links/promo code and enter the $100 tournament will also get a sweet RotoGrinders t-shirt!

    Here are the details to get you started:

    How To Play

    1. If you haven’t already, click here to create your account. If prompted, enter promo code “GRINDERS”.

    2. Download the DRAFT app from the iOS or Google Play store and log into your account to make a deposit. Remember that you get a 100% deposit match bonus (up to $600).

    3. In the NBA category, you’ll see the two RotoGrinders bracket tournaments at the top (swipe left and right to view both entry levels). Enter your desired contest. If you’re entering the $100 buy-in contest, post your DRAFT screen name in this thread to get your ticket for the $10 contest and proceed to step 4.

    4. Complete this Google Form: EDIT: The shirt giveaway is over, however DRAFT has been generous enough to offer up another set of contests and offer the $10 free entry for those entering the current $100 bracket contest!

    The $10 ticket and the RotoGrinders t-shirt bonuses apply to both new and existing DRAFT players that signed up using our link/promo code. Once the contest is over we’ll be sending out that sweet RG-branded gear to all of the qualifying participants.

    How do bracket tournaments on DRAFT work?

    These contests are slightly different than the usual contest format. They’re a head to head, single elimination contest.

    1. At the start of the contest, you’ll be matched up against your opponent for that round

    2. You’ll take turns filling out your rosters in a 2-man draft until your teams are complete and ready to battle it out on game day

    3. The winner of the round moves on, the loser goes home!

    This is going to be an exciting set of contests so you don’t want to miss out!

    Remember to post your DRAFT username here for your ticket to the Hoop tournament once you’ve entered the Tipoff.

    Best of luck to all, and Happy New Year!

    I am reading your policy on players drafted that don’t start. I selected Dwade in a 6pm draft. I guess I’m screwed for tonight?

    Currently late scratches will get you. On the fairness side, everyone has access to the same player knowledge at the time of the draft. In other words the same scenario could happen to your opponent tomorrow.

    We do understand this is a point of frustration and we’re working on solutions that would involve swapping the player.

    Since I do not plan to play on the site again, it will not matter. That is an experience I will not voluntarily repeat.

    To all that joined the GRINDERS HOOP CLASSIC – We had an issue starting the tournament and have had to push back the first round to tomorrow at 6:30PM EST. Sorry about this and please reach out if you have any questions.

    can I get a link to the bracket for the $100.. I’m in round 2 and the app won’t let me look at the bracket unless I have $100 in my account currently.. fix the glitch or let me see the bracket… Support responded to me once last night but after I explained the problem further they haven’t responded.. lame to ignore me if they can’t figure out the problem.. love the concept but I seem to have problems on the app too often.

    If you go to the results of your first round draft and click View Tournament and then View Bracket, you should be able to view the bracket above on your phone. Please let me know if that doesn’t work for you.

    Hi All – We’ve opened up another set of NBA tournaments that start this Friday. Although these new tournaments aren’t part of the RotoGrinders t-shirt promotion, if you join the $100 TIPOFF and post here, I’ll drop $10 into your account for the $10 HOOP CLASSIC.

    Good luck!

    the link works on my phone, thank you.

    like I’ve said before here and in an e-mail, when I click on my results, then view tournament and then view bracket it takes me to the deposit screen and (I have $49 in my account currently) already has the blank filled with $51 asking me if I would like to deposit.. so there is some sort of glitch that you can’t see the tournament you are in unless you have the buyin available in your account (after you have registered).
