$810 to Play Fantasy with Eddie Royal

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

Well, we haven’t confirmed the final price, but unless some eBay vulture swooped in over the final 7 minutes, the final entrant in Eddie Royal’s fantasy football league paid $810 to compete.

The third-year Broncos wide receiver opened 11 spots in his 12-team outfit to fans who connected with him via social media (Twitter and Facebook) and did things such as submit photos sporting his No. 19 jersey and post videos touting his team for 2010.

Bidding for the 12th spot stayed open for more than a week before closing Sunday afternoon, and all proceeds from the winning bid will be donated to the Denver branch of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. will update once we hear more about the winning bidder and draft plans for the league. As we said before, though, this is simply a cool effort by a player reaching out to his fans.
