SBNation and FanDuel are partnering this season to provide our audience with a chance to win some money by putting all their basketball knowledge into practice. GBB will be participating in helping to promote FanDuel while discussing the Memphis Grizzlies trends that are going to give you an edge in fantasy competition.

We will keep you abreast of lineup changes, player performance patterns, recommendations for favorable matchups, and plenty of other player analysis. GBB provides you with the Grizzlies insider perspective to let you know what to expect from the coaching staff and what variations of strategy you might see throughout the season.

Disclosure: Even though this is a sponsored post with affiliate links, all of the opinions in this post are my own. And as an FYI, FanDuel gave me some cash to play its daily fantasy games.

If you're not familiar with FanDuel or how daily fantasy sports works in general, it's not difficult to get acquainted. "But Chris, I don't gamble." No problem, there's plenty of free games on FanDuel for you to enjoy as well. Whether you're paying for cash or for fun (or both), in either format, you get a set budget (not real money and separate from any real money you might wager), which you use to pick a team from the pool of NBA players playing on any given night. It's like getting to draft dozens of fantasy teams throughout the season. You'll have a set lineup that accrues fantasy points based on their performance that night, and you can keep track of your fantasy matchup to see how your opponent is fairing.

For more information, check out the FanDuel NBA Beginners Guide. If you need a more in-depth look and want to advance your game, check out the FanDuel NBA Strategy Center for some tips. If you hate reading things (why are you on a blog right now?), here's a video tutorial to get you going:

Later this season, we'll even have some exclusive Grizzly Bear Blues games for the community to take part in together. But for now, just head over to FanDuel and sign up to find an SB Nation league to play in while the season's still getting started!

You must be 18 years or older and live in the US or Canada to play. Please note that residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana or Washington cannot play for money. Canada is all good on that front.
