    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!

    My thoughts exactly on #4…figured it would have the least amount of entries. I’m just hoping all my guys are actually bench players tonight…any insight??

    Mills, Kilpatrick, Ross, ZeBo, Monroe, Wade, Butler, J.Johnson

    should all be bench guys.

  • JSteele

    I did the all value one but I can’t see if I’m doing well or not

  • Callmeskippy

    First of all, thanks for doing this. I know manually find each winner must be tedious. Definitely a fun way to build a lineup and looking forward to the next one. Also, wondering when the winners will be announced?

    i think i pulled off the “put me in coach” bounty

  • Callmeskippy

    How many points foreverca?

  • Yeoman

    I might have missed someone but I think this was the perfect lineup for #4 and if I added it right it would have totaled 260.25:

    PG Rondo
    SG Kilpatrick
    SF Ellington
    PF Randolph
    C Jones
    G Wade
    F Johnson
    UT Smart

  • Ree4erMadness

    I did the jam them in and ended up with 286.50 and I had harden at 11%. Would have scored more if Dante Cunningham didn’t suck

  • celtics2448

    The downside of #4 is that I’m unaware of my competition.

    607th – 215.25

    Kilpatrick 29.5
    Wade 29
    Evans 22
    Randolph 40.75
    Jones 31.75
    Butler 10.25
    James Johnson 33.25
    Hawes 18.75

  • Ericpaul

    Thanks for doing this. It was fun, even if I chose to do the vowel one and Serge Ibaka failed to help me out even just a little bit. It still was a fun challenge

    I’ll probably go over these Monday morning and figure out the winners. It’s pretty obvious who the winner of Jam Them In is since the top score met the criteria for that one.

  • jetsrule2012

    great contest keep coming up with these i think we need a one for nhl/pga/soccer example for nhl all players under 25, all players who play for usa hockey,all players who play for canda,all players who have won a stanley cup

  • Vanco

    Did the all value bounty and got 143.75. Totally missed on the Rondo play which seems so obvious in hindsight.

  • IronMonkey415

    Scored 249.50 with players between $5000 and $7000.

  • ghost3490

    You did – corrected. That one was hard to do as the spreadsheet doesn’t show player prices so I was going one line at a time looking for lineups with no expensive players, just passed yours over.

    Thanks!

  • celtics2448

    Thanks a lot! This was a fun contest, hopefully it didn’t take you too long to figure out the winners.
