For a second straight year, FanDuel and SB Nation are partnering up through an exclusive deal for daily fantasy baseball.

What's daily fantasy baseball? Well, it's very similar to the "Pick 6" game they ran on SB Nation a few years back and takes MLB's streak game a step further. You pick a set lineup of players, with a salary cap, and are scored based on their performance in that one day. If you score high enough for whatever group you enter, you can win some money.

Here's a video on how to play:

Contest rules are listed here. Unfortunately, those of you living in AZ, IA, LA, MN, WA cannot play for money. But, there are plenty of free leagues offered by FanDuel you can participate in instead.

The great thing about daily fantasy games is that if you don't have a ton of time to manage them, you don't have to play every day. Just pop in when you have time and give your night of baseball some extra stakes.

FanDuel gave me some money to play around with the game and I'm impressed at its ease of use, both in finding leagues and setting lineups. There's plenty of information handy to set lineups. Though this is a sponsored post, the opinions are all mine.

SB Nation is hosting a $6,000 one-day Fantasy Baseball league for MLB Opening Day on FanDuel. It's $5 to join and first place wins $1,000 and four tickets to a game.

We'll be reminding you of the Opening Day contest periodically until it gets here and then we'll check in with leagues from time to time during the season. Join up if you haven't already and let's let a TCB reader/commenter/writer win one of these leagues.
