    The first bounty contest proved to be so popular that we thought we’d try it again. We’re going to have a Freeroll Bounty contest on DraftKings for today’s (Friday, January 27th) NBA main slate. We’ll be awarding $50 prizes to each “bounty” claimed. It’s a single entry contest so you will have to choose which of the bounties you want to attack. Here’s a look at the five bounties that are available.

    The 5 Bounties:

    1) The All Value Team Bounty – all players on your team must have a salary of $4,500 or lower. WINNER – sontzu 199.5

    2) The Jam Them In Bounty – you must have at least three of the four players priced at or above $10,000 (Harden, Cousins, Lebron, Giannis) on your team – WINNER – naenae30 338.00.

    3) Vowel Trouble Bounty – the players first or last name must begin with a vowel (A,E,I,O,U) WINNER – WinstonWorthington 263.50.

    4) The Put Me In Coach Bounty – all players from your roster must not have started in that night’s game WINNER – Celtics2448 215.25

    This is a single entry contest so create a team that meets the criteria of one of the bounties listed above. We’ll award $50 in cash to your DraftKings account if you have the highest score for a bounty – this could take a couple of days since we have to request DraftKings to manually add the funds. Remember, this is just for fun, and any disagreements will be decided by the RG staff. In the event of a tie, RotoGrinders will randomly choose a winner from all those tied

    Happy Hunting!

    Correct. It’s doable. Barely.

  • steelcitydozer

    He’s saying there are 4 players 10k and above. Fit 3 of them in your lineup

  • steelcitydozer

    I like the vowel bounty sounds like you could build a quality team imo

  • jnice83

    how many bountys can you claim

  • yanks250125

    all of these entries go into one contest?

  • mikerock22

    can you play a lineup for each bounty or do you pick one?

  • yanks250125

    I think just 1. It’s a single entry contest

  • mikerock22

    yeah after rereading I think you just choose one of the 5 and go for it

    5) The Mid-Range Team bounty – all players on your team must be priced between $5,000 and $7,000 in salary.

    Pretty stupid question, but when you say “between”, can you take players that are right on 5,000 and 7,000 or does it literally mean 4,900-6,900

    This is going to be fun. Can’t wait. Thanks RotoGrinders!!!!!!

  • xaab

    There is only one single entry contest. You build your lineup based off one of the above rules and enter the contest. All bounties will be entered in the same contest. The RG staff will then look through and find the highest score for each of the 5 options and award them the prize.

    Seems like a valid question to me.. it was my first thought because those are 2 very different things. Although it seems only Booker falls on the dot for the range and everyone else is above or below 5k and 7k.

    Ya, just a little confused. I see a couple guys at 7,000 on the dot I like so want to make sure they would be valid

    This is the correct answer!

    You are only really playing vs lineups that do the same bounty as you.

    So one is not any easier than the other really.

    the easiest to win would be the one with the least other people competing against you. of course you wouldn’t know which one that is until after the lineups were revealed.
