NBA Playoffs have finally arrived. What a SEASON it's been, and we cannot wait to see what happens next!

Look, we know all the NBA fans already know the ins and outs of what's happening, but if you want to make it more exciting from the comfort of your own home? Sign up with FanDuel.

The sports betting app has an amazing promo for new users: FanDuel matches up to 20% of your first deposit, up to $500! They also have a points system where you rack up points when you make any money bet - you'll accumulate points even if you lose and you can then use those points to bet.

With FanDuel Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), you have the ability to custom build your ultimate team. Fantasy sports can be a battlefield, but FanDuel makes the whole process a breeze.

FanDuel DFS takes a different approach to Fantasy sports. How many times have you been stuck with the same lineup for months? Not having control over your dream team truly sucks, especially when that one player you rolled the dice on is out with a season-ending injury... So, what if we told you that you could switch your teams up on a weekly basis?

Signing up couldn't be easier, and can be done online or when you download the FanDuel app from the app store, available for iOS and Android. From there, they'll ask you to register for an account, which takes about 2 minutes.

They'll ask you for some basic info to get started - name, address, card information, and your social security number (so they can make sure you're not a coach or player and they'll keep your info safe).

What's awesome is you can have an entirely new lineup every week. FanDuel works differently than other fantasy leagues. Instead of spending time drafting your players for the whole season, you have your pick of any players in the league for your lineup for that week.

Each individual player has a salary value, and the total value of your team has to be less than your weekly cap. It's a great excuse to get creative with your lineup and take a chance on a rookie.

FanDuel has fantasy leagues for NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, soccer, and golf.

You can cash out your winnings at any time, too. Every win, no matter the amount, can be deposited right into your bank account whenever you want. You can place a bet when the lines come up, and you can also keep betting right up until the game starts.

Playoffs are going to be insane, so check out FanDuel DFS to see how you can celebrate the right way!

I refuse to join fantasy leagues, and I'm a sports fanatic. I live for March Madness and the NBA season as a lifelong fan, but as far as other players on other teams go, I can't keep up with every little thing that happens. Plus, unlike my friends, I have a full-time job. While I've had a bit more free time given the current environment, I'll still pretty limited in terms of long time commitments even when sports come back live in a few weeks.

One day in our group chat, One Bite, my friend Anthony said he was signing up for FanDuel's Fantasy Sports League. I told him I was out - "Ok, you guys have fun" - and went back to my day while they talked about their picks. That Sunday, the group chat was going nuts. Two of them won money with FanDuel. I said, "Wait, already???"

I scrolled back up through the messages, trying to make sense of them- instead of committing to a 4-month league, the FanDuel App lets you switch up your teams on a weekly basis.For new users, there's a special offer running right now where FanDuel matches 20% of your first deposit, for a bonus of up to $500. This means if you deposit $2500 after you register, they'll match 20% of that deposit and put an additional $500 into your account!

For their fantasy basketball, you get to play on a week-to-week basis. I'd only need to research for a week-long period instead of a 4-month commitment, and I can opt-out if I'm really busy. This seriously changed things for me.

I went online to sign up - there's a FanDuel app, too, so I made a mental note to download it for my ride to work. After I put in my credit card info, they asked for my social security number and I panicked. Were all my friends getting scammed? I checked in and somebody said "scroll up, dude" - they'd also had this panic and checked the site - it's actually to avoid you getting scammed and to avoid professional coaches, players, or team owners from playing.

The website was really clear and easy to navigate - it wasn't a complicated bracket or excel doc. To start, there are Free Play contests where you can win money without putting anything down. Awesome.

I went to go pick my players for the week, excited by the $10,000 weekly prize pool. There's also a $100,000 prize pool for the season winners. Damn. We're doing College & NBA, but they also do, MLB, NHL, WNBA, soccer, and golf. They also do a bunch of giveaways and prop pick-em games which can be played even before sports are officially back live!!

Not gonna lie, I lost my first game. Hard. But three of my friends won this time and I won the next week! I only bet the $5 that FanDuel gave me for free, so it could have been worse. Now that they match my deposit amount, I'll be using the 20% deposit match amount for new opportunities!

With Fanduel, you get to pay yourself out immediately, and it's deposited into your bank account soon after. Sure, our group chat is mostly trash-talking now, but I'm already getting a head start on next season with FanDuel.

It's not too late to start your own Bachelor fantasy league

The Rose Reckoner is bringing brutal competition to this brutal competition.

If you're like me, then you probably never expected yourself to be this invested in The Bachelor (and the entire Bachelor family of media products). I'm not crazy about Nick Viall as The Bachelor; in fact, I think he's a lukewarm, overly reserved response to his own outdated personalities on earlier seasons of the show. But if there's one thing you learn loving The Bachelor, it's that people can make major changes in their lives for the sake of a TV show and still have it count.

Not sold yet? Here's another way to sweeten the deal of watching The Bachelor/ette: your very own fantasy Bachelor league. The Rose Reckoner is a fan-made site that facilitates a Bachelor fantasy game featuring drafting and scoring a la fantasy sports. Following the rules laid out by 30 under 30 media luminary, Griffin McElroy, and his lovely wife and co-host Rachel on their superb Bachelor fancast, Rose Buddies.

As you can see, winning the game isn't the only way to win the game; "bad behavior" can also score you points. That means getting naked (*cough* Corinne *cough*), crying (Corinne), and referring to your own anatomy ("platinum vagine") can all score you major points. That makes villains just as important as the heroines of Nick's season. It also makes rooting for Corinne all the more possible and profitable.

Players are shared by teams until after the third draft and if your contestant is eliminated after the final draft, tough luck for you.

I'm already killing it this season with Corinne, Danielle L, and Liz (RIP) on my team but I've got stiff competition from the other teams that also have Corinne.

Get out there and claim your destiny on the fantasy-semi-reality-love-dating-show battlefield with Rose Reckoner! And if you're taking podcast recommendations, be sure to check out the sweet and hilarious Rose Buddies cast on the Maximum Fun network.
