With the 2014 National Lacrosse League season in full swing, the NLL Fantasy Challenge is going strong as the schedule hits Week 5 this weekend. Build your fantasy lacrosse roster under the salary cap and compete against friends and other managers for the chance to win prizes.
With only six teams in action this weekend, be sure to get players on bye out of your lineup. Get some help from NLL fantasy guru Alexander Hinkley by checking out his weekly content on NLL.com:
While those who signed up before the year are ahead of the game for the overall grand prize for the season, it's never too late for fans to register their fantasy team to compete for great weekly prizes.
Sign-up your team at fantasy.nll.com and check out all things Fantasy Challenge-related on nll.com/fantasy for weekly content and more! For mobile devices, check out our optimized fantasy site by clicking here.
New this year, each NLL team has their own official mini-league with even more prize opportunities.
Once you have a team registered, sign in and click the “leagues” tab at the top of the page. Then you can click the “join a mini league” button and sign up using your team’s specific league ID listed below. You can also search for that mini-league and join that way by searching for the name of the league.
Winners will be required to pick up their prize at their local arena at the end of the season so it is probably best to only sign up for your local team’s mini-league otherwise you may not be eligible for the prize. Check out the full list of official fan mini-leagues below and be sure to join your favorite team's fantasy league.
