DraftKings Week One Fantasy Football Contests
DraftKings teased everyone last night with a well timed, well worded late Thursday evening E-mail to their existing players about their scheduled 11:30 AM ET, Friday July 31 announcement of all their NFL Week One fantasy contests and promotions.
The posting of all the week one fantasy football details on their main lobby will just be the beginning. You’ll be seeing and hearing an all out media blitz (on all the major NFL TV networks and sports radio) by DraftKings for the up-coming 2015 fantasy football season starting in August (training camp and pre-season games) and continuing thru-out the full regular season.
DraftKings will be adding additional contests as existing contests fill, so be sure to check back frequently to see what else is added in the next few weeks before the season kicks off.
Keep in mind that all the player salaries are locked for week one. No changes will be made to the player salaries listing with the exception of maybe adding more player names. Once you set your line-up the only changes made will be what you change.
