NBA Beginners Contest – How to Play Fantasy Basketball on FanDuel
After you make your initial deposit, FanDuel offers a Beginners contest with a step-by-step information bubbles to guide you through the process.
This takes you to the Lobby for Beginner contests. From here you can filter available contests by selecting Game Styles (Full Roster, Single Game, Single Game Boost), entry fee (free to $50,000) or entry type (Single Entry or Satellites & Qualifiers).
Once you select a contest you like. You should check Summary and Prizes tab, to see info and payout about the contest you are about to enter.
The other important info to find out about the contest is the Scoring Breakdown. Contests can vary in scoring depending on how they are setup.
When you are ready you can press the green “Enter new Lineup” button. This takes you to the following screen. From here you can filter the available players by Game Time and Position. You can sort the players by fields such as Name, Fantasy Point Per Game (FPPG) or Salary.
After you select your first player, you will see the salary of that player deduct from the total to show your remaining salary, as well as salary used.
Once you have filled out your roster, you can press the green “Enter” button submit your roster for competition.
You are now at the confirmation of entry success page, this shows you the contest’s name and details. Your FDP you will receive on settlement is displayed in the green notification bar, towards the top of the screen.

The other types of NBA contests (Tournaments, Beat the Score, Multipliers, Head to Head, 3-100 Players and 50/50s are similar. All contest will have a different form of prizes, so click on the contest to learn. The different contest types will have slightly different rules, as described below, as well as different scoring, depending on each contest. So be sure you read each contest Summary, Prizes and Scoring Rules before entering.
“Tournaments” are high-paying contests with guaranteed prize pools. Tournament contests can vary in contest size and prizes. There are some contests where you compete against a larger field, but also more winners are in the prize pool with also bigger prizes. For those that prefer a smaller field to compete against, there are also contests with fewer contestants.
Beat the Score
“Beat the Score” is a type of tournament where the prize pool is shared across all winners that get a score higher than the stated score. So if the score to beat is 290 points and 20 out 50 contestants get a score of 290 and above. The prize pool will be divided evenly among the 20 winners. If no one gets above 289, all entry fees will be returned.
“Multipliers” is a contest where the prize pool receives a payout that is multiple of their entry fee. So if you enter a NBA Double Up ($5) and you place in the contests winner bracket you will receive $10 (2x $5).
Head to Heads
“Head to Head” is a contest where you compete against one opponent. The player with higher of the two scores wins.
“3-100 Player” is a contest with fewer players to compete against, as well as smaller winners bracket. So if you enter a NBA 10-Player League ($25 – Top 3 Win), you are entering a 10-player league, with a $25 entry fee, where the top 3 scores win. There are different payouts, so be sure to read the descriptions.
“50/50” is a contest where half of all entries win. So if you enter a NBA 50/50 League ($10 – Top 50% Win) contest that accepts 20 participants, 20 people will be in the winners prize pool
