The partnership between SB Nation, Raptors HQ, and FanDuel continues this year, bringing readers the opportunity to play daily fantasy basketball and compete to win cash prizes.

Last year, SB Nation and FanDuel got together to provide readers with the opportunity to play daily fantasy basketball for potential cash prizes. We here at Raptors HQ gladly took part in the fun, providing you with weekly fantasy-based breakdowns of your beloved Toronto Raptors all season long.

Our coverage included discussions regarding things like matchups to target, injuries and their fantasy fallout, hot and cold streaks to monitor, and so much more. We even dipped into talking about season-long fantasy formats from time to time.

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.

Well, if you enjoyed our fantasy hoops stuff last year, we've got good news for you: we're doing it again this year!

If you're not familiar with FanDuel or how daily fantasy sports works in general, you should know that you can choose to play for free or put down real money.

In both formats, you get a set budget, which you use to pick a team from the pool of NBA players playing on any given night. Fill out your roster without going over your budget, then the more stats your guys pile up in the real games, the better chance you have of winning some cold, hard cash in the fake one.

If you're more of a visual learner, check out this handy video:

We'll have weekly links to games for us all to play together, complete with all the information you'll need to know when it comes to using your favourite Raptors in fantasy basketball.

For now, you can click here to sign up for FanDuel if you haven't already. Raptors HQ readers get a sweet 100 percent first time matching deposit bonus (up to $200). Once you're done that, click here to enter a contest tonight (it starts at 7:00 PM EST, costs $2 to enter, the top 16,515 win cash, and First Place wins $10,000).

Don't forget to check out the FanDuel rules before playing and remember that 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. All Canadian provinces are good to go, though!
