Last year, SB Nation teamed up with FanDuel to offer its readers exclusive deals on the best daily fantasy sports site out there. Well, SB Nation and FanDuel have re-upped for this season. It's a pretty sweet deal, and we look forward to bringing you weekly posts on what's going on in fantasy basketball.

These posts will include who's hot, who's not, who's injured, and so much more. Fantasy basketball has grown tremendously over the last few years, and we're excited to cover it once again on At The Hive. If you have any questions or insights, post them in the comments and we'll do our best to answer and share them.

Also, check out Hive Talk Live every Tuesday afternoon for additional fantasy basketball talk.

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.

FanDuel gives you the opportunity to play for free or with real money, so players of all experience levels are welcome to try it out. The premise is simple: You choose a league and build a team while staying within budget constraints. Every league is a one-day league, meaning that after the day's games have concluded, a winner is chosen. It might seem intimidating, but it's easy to learn. If this sounds like something you're interested in, you can sign up here.

You can also check out the following video, which summarizes how the whole thing works.

Straightforward, right? Later in the season, we'll also have some exclusive At The Hive leagues, which could make for some pretty interesting comments sections. For now, you can play in an SB Nation league. Remember, these are one-day leagues, so you can hop in and out at any time.

By the way, if you sign up today, FanDuel will start you off with $100. Yes, $100. For free, for being a member of SB Nation.

Please note, however, that you must be 18 years or older and live in Canada or the US to play. Additionally, residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana and Washington cannot play for money due to state restrictions.

Enjoy!
