    We thought we’d have a bit of fun to start off the New Year and are going to have a Freeroll Bounty contest on FanDuel for the Wednesday, January 4th NBA main slate. We’ll be awarding $50 prizes to each “bounty” claimed. It’s a single entry contest. Here’s a look at the five bounties that are available.

    The 5 Bounties:

    1) The Senior Citizens Bounty – Every player on your roster is 30 years or older. WINNER – hutswing 316.80

    2) The Total Suckage Bounty – Highest scoring lineup that has four players on their roster that score less than 10 fantasy points (must not be 0 though, can be negative).WINNER – sgmain18 240.20

    3) Value Hunting Bounty – Highest scoring lineup that uses less than or equal to $50K of the $60K cap. WINNER – epicsic111 322.40

    4) No Shave Bounty – Highest scoring lineup of players that have facial hair in their FanDuel profile picture (our subjective decision if the player shows enough facial hair to qualify). WINNER – feekdogg 337.70

    We’ll award $50 in cash to your FanDuel account if you have the highest score – this could take a couple of days since we have to request Fanduel 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!

    Since I am jealous that I cannot grow a beard, Facial hair lineup it is! Love this idea, Thanks!

    Suggestion for tracking: I recommend for making it easier for RG to export player list from FD and setting up an automated look up by adding 3 new columns for SR Citizen, No Shave and Cali Dreaming with Y or N in the column if the player qualifies and then you can easily run some automation tools to check the player ID from lineups and have it spit out which bounties that lineup qualifies for and tag it and then create custom leaderboards based on that.

    Senior Citizens Bounty Entered!

  • vball23

    I have a solid lineup for at least 4 of the bounties.
    Every player from Cali team
    Every player over 30
    Every player currently sporting facial hair
    Total roster cost < $50k @ 33.7k

    Total projected points. 103.5 :-)

  • Bushwackers24

    My initial morning lineup was full of facial hair fellas’ so locked it in.

    no shave bounty submitted. that was fun haha!

  • zack131

    Just to verify, for the Value Hunting Bounty, is it less than 50k or less than/equal to 50k? Have a lineup I like that’s exactly 50k.

  • bruski311

    Wonder if I made a line up that works for 2 of those scenarios? Do i qualify for both?

    $50k is fine – clarified OP. Thanks.

    Yea, definitely reduces your odds though. I just entered my Over 30, California Dreaming, Bargain lineup. (I can’t win though just did it for fun)

    I’d imagine it would be the salary under 50k one. You can make a lineup pretty easily to compete for the west coast, facial hair, and over 30.

    Woohoo!

  • timusbr

    Love the contest idea, Not on FD, so cant participate.

    why not a DK contest? I think when you run these things they are always FD related. Is that because the people that think of these things and run them are FD oriented? Please light a fire under the DK people.

    LOL the 2 negative comments above are hilarious to me. Neither of them seem to be succesful.

    I am totally going to try my best to fulfill all the bounties! But it doesn’t seem that easy to do.

    I’m doing my best to have 1 lineup compete in 3. I think I can get one to cover at least 4 but wont be competitive enough. I want to make a run at winning!

    Either way this has been a fun task.

    I know this is no Harden level flow, but does Giannis qualify for facial hair with that weak stubble/goatee?

    I think its judged by his FD picture which does not bode well for facial hair

    Thanks WG! I was on the fence about it, but was leaning more on not qualifying it as facial hair

    #5 seems almost impossible: Eight of your nine players must be from one of the three California teams playing (Clippers, Warriors, Kings).

    Eight players from ONE team? Or is that worded wrong??

    Bad wording – fixed. Thanks.

    Can I get a ruling on Moe Harkless facial hair? I think it’s a shadow… But I’m on my phone and can’t really tell.

    not going to do rulings on every facial hair question – use common sense. If you can see it and it’s somewhat noticeable, then we’ll allow it. (Harkless is ok fwiw).

  • CUTiger81

    You know you spend too much time on DFS when you’re clicking on pictures looking for contrarian facial hair that people may not notice in the smaller picture…..

  • flip4flop

    if you want an easier time looking for facial use mobile. You can see all the pictures at once.
