    Hey guys,

    We had a lot of fun running the bounty contest on Wednesday and are looking to run another one the next time the NBA has a massive 12+ game slate. We’re looking for user ideas for bounties – if we use your idea, we’ll send some RG swag your way. So post ideas in this thread and we’ll go through them and pick the ones we like best.

  • timusbr

    Associated with ACC or Big 10 or SEC or the coup de gras > Not assoc with big confrence school.

    or almost a dbl contest – all players from the same college confrence (foreiners or HS is non big conf schools) winners of each confrence and winning confrence.

    How about 3 ideas relating to mascots. Animal, vegetable, mineral.

    The Animal Bounty – Only players from teams with creature mascots (i.e. Bucks, Bulls, T-Wolves, Grizzlies,)
    The Human Bounty – Only players from teams with a mascot that a human can be (i.e. Celtics, Wizards, Kings, Warriors)
    The Thing Bounty – Only players from teams with non-living mascots (i.e. Heat, Nets, Clippers, Pistons)

  • WhiteGeneva

    The Jamal Crawford – You can only use players that have been a teammate of Jamal Crawford at some point in their career
    Under 4k – At each position you must have 1 player with a salary under 4k (1 PG, 1 SG, 1 SF, 1 PF, 1 C)
    Only players from underdogs

  • WhiteGeneva

    I would also love to see another Total Suckage tournament. This involves a fair amount of strategy.

    LOL, this is my everyday lineup then the G, F, Utility guy is the 10K stud

    But I like this one as an everyday contest (larger field). No thinking, or research involved to make sure you qualify.
    Fantastic Idea, im gonna use it in a league gimmick contest.

  • Ravensfan929

    The Mid-Range Bounty: No player can cost over 6k
    The under 25 Bounty: All players must be 25 years or younger
    The All-Star Bounty: All players must have been named an NBA All-Star at least once in their career
    The State Bounty: All players must have been born in a specific state (whichever state or group of states that RG deems to be the best fit)

  • adelosa

    Family Feud Bounty- All players must have a brother also in the NBA. (Currys, Crawfords, Holidays, Morris’, Plumlees, Zellers, Gasols, Lopezs, etc)
    No Relation Bounty- Players with the same last name but no relation

  • cusenj10

    The No College Bounty- All players must have skipped college
    The One and Done Bounty – All players must have played only one year in college

  • CUTiger81

    Some buddies and I have been doing these bounties in our league on FD for a while. Some that we’ve used:

    Conference Power – all players had to play in the same conference in college
    Facial Hair
    All Caucasian team
    All Vowel team – first or last name has to start with a vowel
    25 and under team
    NBA or MLB conference or league team (East or West only and NL or AL only)
    All lefty team (works better for baseball)
    Mendoza line team (batters with an avg of .225 or less)
    All Foreigner Team – only guys born outside of the US
    All Tattoo Team – only guys who have tattoos clearly visible in their FD profile pic (IT2, James Johnson, Brandon Jennings, DJ Augustin, Liggins, Redick, Crawford, LouWill, etc…there’s more than you would think)

  • fildo22

    Lefties – All players must be primarily left handed shooters

  • Gfry3

    The Never Trust these guys group, only guys with 2 first names, because you can never trust a guy with 2 first names! See Lebron James Isaiah Thomas Kyrie Irving Deandre Jordan etc.

    I like the no starters idea, though you would probably see some duplicate lineups

  • bhdevault

    Only players from that won a National Championship in college (would you even have enough choices?)
    Full roster with team from only 2 college teams. (1 would probably be pushing it)

  • sethayates

    1. Can only roster players pictured in their player card in a uninform different than their current team.

    2. Frequent Flyers: Can only pick players who have played for three or more NBA teams.

    3. The Kardashians: Can only pick players who have dated a Kardashian. Ok, this one may not work (yet)

    P.S. Google says Harden, Humphries, Parsons and Thompson have dated a Kardashian. We are getting there.

    Crap-Tastic = You can only roster players from teams with losing records

  • prater715

    Long Names: Players with last names of 7 letters or more.

    Word Names: First Initial and Last Name equal a word. Examples. J.Ingles, S.Mack

    Shorties: Players 6’4” and under

    Baldies: No Hair on top

  • sidislike

    I like the Word idea but each players last name should be a common noun e.g. Green, Love, Cousins, Gay, Towns, Walker, Curry, KIlpatrick…whats that, Kilpatrick isn’t a word? Guess I’ll just have to fade him then

  • Kjwhalen77

    Home Cookin’ – Only players from the home team.
    Road Warriors – Only players from the visiting team.
