Opening Day for most teams is just a day away, and that means baseball fans can collect cash. FanDuel is giving NESN.com readers an exclusive chance to win $1,000 with a one-day, free-to-enter fantasy baseball giveaway.
All you have to do is build a team for a full slate of games on Thursday. Prizes will be paid out after the games end that evening.
This free contest will be salary-cap style drafting, where everyone attempts to assemble the best team out of the available players. You will have a $35,000 budget to build a nine-player team with one pitcher, one catcher, one first baseman, one second baseman, one third baseman, one shortstop and three outfielders. Each MLB player has been assigned a price based on his expected fantasy performance.
On Thursday, fans can monitor their squad throughout the day with FanDuel's live scoring, and the best fantasy general managers will take home $1,000 in prizes.
NESN.com readers also can earn bragging rights by beating NESN.com's team. The NESN.com team will be "NESN1" on the FanDuel site.
Here's our squad for Thursday.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
Ike Davis, 1B
Neil Walker, 2B
Hanley Ramirez, 3B
