If you were lucky enough to draft Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles or Titans wideout Kenny Britt in your fantasy football league this year, well, sorry about that. After both stud players were lost for the season in the first few weeks with knee injuries, chances are, you're hating life right about now.
Sure, you can try to make up for losing your top pick or super sleeper by trying to add "The Next Big Thing" on waivers or attempting to trade for a replacement, but really, that's going to leave you spending most of your time chasing your own tail, while being endlessly frustrated with your predicament.
But at Daily Joust, a site that offers oodles of fantasy games and contests, this sort of pitfall simply does not exist. As you might be able to divine from the name, every game at Daily Joust is - you guessed it - daily. That means you don't have to wait several months after your draft to find out what place your team finished and how much prize money you've won. It also means you don't have to worry about season-ending injuries to guys like Charles and Britt.
The game play is a little bit different from your usual fantasy contests - that is, you create a new team each week, rather than hanging onto one team for an entire season - but the concept comes from the same basic principle -- pick your format (i.e. head-to-head, salary cap, etc.), select players to fill out your roster and keep tabs on their performances to prove how savvy you are.
Once you sign up at www.dailyjoust.com, you're ready to enter all sorts of daily games - from free ones to those with an entry fee - across various sports and start winning real cash, if you're good enough. Say fantasy football is your poison of choice. Well, you can literally draft your team on Sunday before NFL games begin then get paid once the Monday night game is in the books. The turnaround is that quick.
If you'd rather try your hand at other sports, Daily Joust offers fantasy college football - you can play conference-specific contests, like SEC-only and Pac-12-only, or focus instead on teams ranked in the Top 25 - and the site is launching its fantasy hockey platform, with plans to do the same for fantasy college hoops later this fall.
Aside from all this, one of the unique aspects of Daily Joust is the option to participate in a solo contest. Rather than competing against a group of friends or in a larger league - both of which are still options, of course - with the Solo game play, you are the only entrant. The goal? To compile a player roster that will accrue enough points to reach a pre-set tally required to win a prize. This makes for a great avenue to break into the world of fantasy sports, but it's also a quick way to keep even the most seasoned vet on his toes.
Speaking of body parts, you do realize that Jamaal Charles, Kenny Britt and their busted knees still can't help you for the rest of 2011, right? Instead of whining about it, just head to Daily Joust and draft a whole new team. Every week.
