It's Friday, so you know what that means. Here are the links and some information regarding this week's one-day fantasy basketball tournament, presented by FanDuel and SB Nation.

  • Click here to sign up for FanDuel if you haven't already. Raptors HQ readers get a 100 percent first time matching deposit bonus (up to $200).
  • Click here to enter the contest we're promoting for tonight. It's free to play and half the teams win money (new users only). If you're not new, you can always click here to join in on one of the night's big tournaments.
  • If you want to follow along with others playing in the tournament, use the hashtag #FanDuelSBN on Twitter.
  • If you're not sure how FanDuel works, check out our initial post on the partnership from the start of the season.

If you want to get a Raptor into your lineup from the game tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers, we suggest:

DeMar DeRozan ($7,800)

DeMar is a California native and it can be fun to root for guys playing in front of their friends and family. He's been filling up the fantasy box scores lately anyway, averaging 37.2 fantasy points per game over his last four contests, on the strength of 20.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.0 steals, and 3.0 turnovers per game over that span. He'll have that little bit of extra motivation playing in front of his home crowd tonight, so he should have a very good chance at exceeding value on his affordable mid-range price tag.

Alright, enough jibber-jabber. Let's get down into the comment section and discuss our lineups!

Note: This is a sponsored post from FanDuel, a site that features all sorts of one-day fantasy basketball tournaments, including tonight's FREE game for new users (where half the league wins a cash prize). 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.
