“Gimme $20 dollars, gimme $20 dollars!” is the phrase I hear every time I think about the sensational fantasy sports site Skyllzone.com.
Unlike the other growing fantasy sites, there is no fee required to play but you can only have two entries per week. That in turn means the potential earnings are smaller but if you are a moderate or conservative fantasy fan who still likes to compete, this might be a godsend site for you.
Participants will draft players for the day as if they were drafting for the season. Meaning not everybody will be able to have a LeBron James or Kevin Durant in their lineup. The other great twist is that you are drafting against nine reasonably intelligent computer teams.
Let’s face it, there are some sharks and experts out there in the fantasy sports world. Playing on some of the other sites can often result in a “donation” of one’s funds.
With Skyllzone the risk is none with the reward being moderate to lucrative.
Here are a few specifics from their rules page:
- Win your 10-team league vs computer teams and win $20.
