Win your share of $4,000 in cash plus Rotowire subscriptions

Each Sunday — from Week 1 through Week 10 — you’ll be able to compete against three Rotowire staff members: Kevin Payne, Jeff Erickson, and Derek VanRiper, plus fellow Rotowire readers. It’s just $10 to play each contest and the top-150 users all double up their cash. If you finish ahead of all three Rotowire staff members in any week, you’ll win an entry into a Week 11 Free Play Contest — where you can cash in.

Week 11 Free Play Contest entries will be credited at the start of Week 11.
