    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.

  • FargoBison

    The bad boys…You can only use players that have received technical fouls this season.

  • Tammy409

    Nonsense Names, i.e:

    Fukan Korkmaz
    Check Diallo
    TImofey Mozgov
    Nene Hilario

  • krazyju84

    All Hustle Team – only steals and blocks.
    Ball hog team – can only roster starters(or spend at least 55k) and least amount of assists win.

  • krazyju84

    All two first names team – players with last name that is also a first name

    examples:

    Lebron James
    Carmelo Anthony
    Chris Paul
    Paul George
    Kawhi Leonard
    Dewayne Wade
    Isaiah Thomas
    Corey Joseph
    Wilson Chandler
    Terrance Ross

    any William(s)

    Maybe there aren’t enough two first name players…

  • BMiller813

    Its all relative- players who had or have family members in nba

  • TheRealJosh5

    The All Arrest team – all players that have prior arrests.

  • Zieg30

    Peripherals Play – You can only use players whose PPG averages at, or under, 10 points/game.

  • mandarinorange

  • JornViggo

    Ish Smith revenge – only roster players from teams Ish Smith has been on

    Name fusions – each player has to be paired with a player that fuses names together (Chris Paul George, CJ Miles Turner, Paul George Hill, Carmelo Anthony Morrow)

  • gregg323

    #1 Highest scoring lineup with players solely from NBA teams whose coaches DFSers hate. The Mike Malone/Alvin Gentry/Earl Watson memorial bounty for example. Forces us to concentrate entirely on teams we often like to avoid during big slates due to the inconsistent rotations such coaches often utilize.

    #2 Highest scoring lineup using players who only play between 10-25 minutes in the game.

      2013 FanDuel WFFC Finalist

    1)The all Kentucky team: kentucky alums.
    2)The all Brother team: plumlees, morris, zeller, teague’s, curry’s, lopez’s, gasols, dragic’s, millsap’s, hollidays, klay/mychel thompson, hernangomez’s, blake/taylor griffin, landry’s, hansborough’s. (hope giannis’ bro makes it in the nba soon) i know most of these brothers on the back end are not on an active roster anymore, but thought i’d mention them anyways. either way player pool should be 20+
    3)All white team
    4) all euro team

    ps. If you could choose one of these categories as a gm. which category do you choose? i think the all Kentucky team wins by a hair, right?

  • Bp2527

    All correlation team. i.e if picking point guard and okc is playing Chicago. if you take westbrook must take a point guard from Chicago

    Wow, some of these bounties would require an incredible amount of research. Was the Total Suckage bounty claimed by accident? I agree that it was very difficult and I don’t think very many people went after it because if your team failed to meet the criteria it wasn’t going to have a high score. I tried it because it was a very different game than the traditional salary cap strategy. I tried to put 5 guys on my team that I thought could get under 10 and 2 of them received the dreaded “DNP-CD.”

    My suggestion is jersey numbers. There are plenty of variations use can use on this. All odds, all evens, must have a 5, etc.

  • JZ2318

    All players must have the same colored jersey in their FD picture (no more than 2 from same team).

  • stv1313

    NBA Players with multiple children with multiple mothers.

  • Kanye26

  • Kanye26

  • rgast3

    all white team.

  • chaumers

  • tmarohl

    Only players without tatoos.

  • Johnnyplayer

    Here was my team for the winning Total Suckage. I started by targeting my under 10 point guys looking at game logs with people under 10 minutes who scored points. Obviously there is a little luck involved with this. Hezonja hit a 3 with a minute left in his game and Napier had 8 points at half, but didn’t crack 10 points with Portland keeping it close with Golden State.

    Kemba Walker 39.3
    Shabazz Napier 9.5
    Giannis Antetokounmpo 53.6
    Mario Hezonja 3
    Carmelo Anthony 55.7
    Welsey Johnson 3.2
    Draymond Green 39.9
    Noah Vonley 6.8
    DeMarcus Cousins 29.2
    Total 240.2

    All players on your roster must win (or lose) the game. Eliminates stacking players from from opposing teams.
