How to play

1. Enter a one-day money league
Winners get paid cash right after that night's games end. And a whole new season starts the very next day.

2. Pick your fantasy team in minutes
Fill your roster with the players you want, as long as you stay under the salary cap.

3. Only play when you want to
No season-long commitment; you're never locked in. When you play is all up to you.

How your team scores fantasy points
Our scoring system rewards stats just like season-long fantasy basketball does. Points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks all contribute to your fantasy score. The higher your score for the night, the higher you'll finish in your league. Click here to see our scoring values here.

Who do you play?

Public leagues run every single day
Over 3,000+ open leagues are listed in our draft lobby every single day of the 2014-15 NBA season. Once you choose a league to join, all you have to do is pick your team for that day. You're allowed to edit your team and change players as many times as you want before the games start. We run leagues of all sizes every day. Many are as small as 2 teams (play someone head to head for money), but bigger formats like our NBA Slam have thousands of teams and reward top finishers thousands of dollars every night. League entry fees from $1 to $535 and have all kinds of payout structures. Most of our leagues have multiple money winners. Some, like our 50/50 leagues, pay all teams that finish in the top half nearly double their money back.

Create a private league for you and your friends
Play against your friends in a private invite-only league. You control the league size, entry fee, and payout distribution.
