Operation Sports has teamed up with FanDuel to run a fantasy football championship to kick off the season. The winner takes home cash, bragging rights, and a new PlayStation 4 or Xbox One courtesy of FanDuel. FanDuel is the leader in one-week fantasy football leagues, where you can play for real money.

The week 1 Operation Sports league starts on opening Sunday. It costs $10 to enter and pays the winner $150. If you’re new to FanDuel, sign up with promo code OS100 to receive a 100% deposit bonus, which is FanDuel’s biggest offer. Click here to go to the week 1 league on FanDuel.

FanDuel will run Operation Sports leagues for four consecutive weeks. The four league winners advance to the final round, where the top score wins the PS4 and all the bragging rights.

Here’s a little introduction to the host site FanDuel. FanDuel was featured on ESPN’s Outside the Lines last Sunday and announced a major sponsorship of the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. They’ll pay out $10 million every week this football season and are changing the way people think about fantasy sports.

There are a few great things about FanDuel’s one-week league format. There’s no long-term commitment, cash payouts are instant each week, and a bad injury won’t ruin your year. It’s a salary cap game, so you can pick any player you want for your team as long as you stay under the cap. There’s no waiting around for a draft. You do your research and fill out your team on your own time.

Click here to join the opening week Operation Sports Fantasy Football league!

Brian Mazique, over at Bleacher Report, has posted an interview with him, along with a new screenshot. The NBA Twitter feed posted the official cover art.

EA Sports has also released a behind the scenes NBA Live 15 cover trailer and blog.

Let's hope more announcements about the game are on the way soon.

DAMIAN LILLARD TO GRACE COVER OF NBA LIVE 15

Portland Trailblazers All-Star Earns Cover Honors

August 25, 2014 – Today EA SPORTS announced that Damian Lillard will be featured as the cover athlete for NBA LIVE 15. Lillard shared the news with his fans via social media, and EA also released a special video celebrating Lillard’s appearance on the cover.

Lillard’s involvement in the franchise goes beyond a simple cover appearance, as he has been working with the NBA LIVE team for the past two years. Lillard participated in motion capture and voice over sessions in both Orlando and Vancouver, Canada where the team was able to capture his signature movement including dribbling and shooting. The team also scanned his head for likeness and recorded facial performance as well as had design sessions about the creative direction of the game. Damian is also the star and storyteller of the new Learn LIVE onboarding mode, where he teaches players the basics of NBA LIVE 15 and recounts his own life journey in basketball. Lillard is already making his presence known in the EA SPORTS family, appearing alongside Kevin Hart and Dave Franco in the recent Madden Season video.

Damian Lillard was selected in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, and went on to earn Rookie of the Year honors in 2013. Lillard’s impressive young career has continued to flourish, as he was named to the NBA West All-Star Team in 2014. He is also a two-time NBA Skills Challenge champion.

NBA LIVE 15 arrives with the most photo-realistic visuals in franchise history and 500+ core gameplay improvements delivering a truly fluid, fun and authentic basketball gaming experience. Reimagined visuals drop you courtside alongside the game’s biggest stars. See the intensity on a player’s face as he nails a game-winner, or the frustration of a heart-wrenching loss. All-new real-time physics on dunks and layups replicate some of the NBA’s most amazing physical plays, letting you posterize your opponent or deny his attempt at the rim. Add into the mix always-connected online game modes and LIVE’s Synergy Sports partnership and you’ll never miss a beat during the NBA season with new content updated daily, all season long.

NBA LIVE 15 is developed in Orlando, Florida by EA Tiburon and will be available on October 7 for Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. To learn more about NBA LIVE 15, visit http://www.easports.com/nba-live.

The 2014 college football season is just around the corner, and we'll have it all covered on Dual Threat, Operation Sports' College Football Podcast! Dual Threat is hosted by Matt Cahill, a.k.a. Drab T-Shirt, and Robert Bode, hosts and producers at 106.7 The Fan in DC, and they discuss everything college football related with an opinionated and fast-paced show!

In the third episode of Dual Threat Season 3, Drab and Bode discuss the impact Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller's season ending injury will have on the Buckeyes, plus the guys preview their last two conferences, the Pac-12 and the SEC. In the Pac-12, the guys look at the impressive talent at quarterback across the country, USC and Washington's future under new leadership, UCLA's Heisman candidates, and if Oregon is truly a national title contender. In the SEC, the guys try to figure out the SEC East, with Georgia having to adjust to not having QB Aaron Murray, South Carolina needing to replace DE Jadeveon Clowney, Missouri trying to find their way back to Atlanta despite losing so much talent and whether Florida can rebound from their worst season in over 20 years. In the SEC West, is Alabama really the clear cut favorite, does LSU have enough on offense, is Auburn getting overlooked, can Texas A&M win without Johnny Football, and whether either of the Mississippi schools challenge for the West title. Next episode, the the guys make their predictions for the new college football playoff, who will win the Heisman Trophy, conference winners and much, much more!

Be sure to follow the show and guys on Twitter, @DualThreatCFB, @DrabTShirt and @Bode1067.
