The Operations Sports week 13 fantasy league is now open. It's $5 to join this week with a $250 total prize pool. It includes the games on Sunday and Monday night. You can click here to join.

The week 12 league came down to the wire. Justin Forsett's huge performance on Monday night propelled Zerocjd into first place, passing the longtime OS member NDAlum32 for the lead late in the fourth quarter.

Both Zerocjd and NDAlum put up big scores while sharing none of the same players. While it was as Peyton Manning / Demaryious Thomas combo that did most of the damage for NDAlum, it was Odell Beckham Jr and Forsett leading the way for Zero.

Editor's Note: FanDuel is offering a "Thanksgiving-Only" slate that only includes the three NFL games on Thanksgiving Day. To join the $250,000 Thanksgiving Day "Cornbread Kickoff", click here.

Here's Zerocjd's winning lineup in week 12.


Good luck in week 13! You can join here.

Legends are coming to EA Sports UFC next month. You can check out a short video here, but it doesn't reveal much.

While plenty of free content has arrived since the game launched, that doesn't necessarily mean this will be. During an interview with UndisputedOnline, back in May, Creative Director Brian Hayes mentioned there would be a charge for specialty fighters.

Quote:
When I asked him about missing fighters (Like last night's new BW Champion, T.J. Dillashaw), he said they will try and get new fighters put in the game often (especially if T.J. had won tonight -- and he DID!) He said these types of "Roster Updates" would be free-of-charge. They would only charge for "DLC Fighters" if they were specialty ones. i.e. like a different Bruce Lee or "Younger" version of fighter. He said people would probably ask why Tito or Rampage are not in the game, but those type of added fighters would probably get turned down by Dana White.

UPDATE: Legends will be free. (Thanks @kevinmurphy17!)

As we get closer to an actual release date, we will definitely hear more details about it.

Until then, what do you think about this news? Which legends would you like to see added to the roster?
