To enter the Contest participant will have to provide their personal information and their selection of 16 players. Participants may draft unlimited times but submit no more than 3,000 entries into the contest.
• Making Draft Selections
Use our mock draft tool to select a team of 16 NFL players and Defense/Special Teams positions. Eligible Entries must include at least 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1PK and 1 DST and 1 FLEX (RB,WR or TE) position. The remaining six players may be selected in any available position remaining. The mock draft tool will recommend players at each selection, but these are simply recommendations and are not any guarantee of success.
• Submitted Entries
Each mock draft will have a total of 12 teams; one team is drafted by a human participant; all the other teams are drafted by the simulator. Only teams drafted and submitted by human participants are officially entered into the contest.
The 17-week season will run from NFL Week 1 through NFL Week 17. There are no playoffs in this league format. Winners will be based purely on total points scored on a weekly basis using optimal scoring of all players on each team’s roster to achieve the best possible starting lineup each week. The starting lineup is 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1PK, 1DST and 1 FLEX (RB, WR or TE). The top scoring team over 17 weeks will be declared the Champion. The second and third place teams will be second and third overall in scoring etc, until the final (100th) prize is awarded.
Team scoring is carried out to the hundredth decimal place (e.g. a team may score 104.35 points).
An individual offensive player on any active starting lineup will be credited points for scoring in the following manner:
• Yards passing divided by 20 (e.g. 301 passing yards = 15.05 fantasy points)
• 4 Points for every passing TD.
• Minus one point (-1) for every interception thrown.
• Yards rushing divided by 10 (e.g. 116 rushing yards = 11.6 fantasy points).
• 6 points for every rushing TD.
• 1 point for every reception.
• Yards receiving divided by 10 (e.g. 73 receiving yards = 7.3 fantasy points).
• 6 points for every receiving TD.
• 1 point for every reception.
• 1 point for every Extra Point
• 3 points for every FG of 1-30 yards plus 0.1 point for every yard thereafter.
• Example: a 46 yard FG would be worth 4.6 points.
Defense and Special Teams Scoring:
• 1 point for every sack
• 2 points for every team takeaway (interception or fumble recovery)**
• 6 points for every TD (via interception return, fumble return, punt or kickoff return, blocked FG return, missed FG return, blocked punt return)*
• 2 points for every safety
• 5 points for every shutout***
• 2 points for allowing between 1-5 points***
• 1 point for allowing between 6-10 points***
* TDs scored on "fake" FGs or "fake" punts do NOT count as Defense/Special Teams scoring. TDs scored by the offensive team after a blocked FG or blocked punt do NOT count as a Defense/Special teams score. TDs scored on a double-turnover only count for the individual player who scored the TD, not for the team.
** A double turnover is considered points for the recovering team's defense and ST. Thus, an example, team A's offense fumbles and team B's defense recovers, but then fumbles the ball back to team A's offense. In that scenario team A's defense and special teams (along with team B's defense and ST) are both awarded a fumble recovery.
*** Any and all points scored against a team are considered points scored against the special teams and defense. Thus, as an example, a turnover by the offense that is returned for a TD is considered as points scored against the special teams and defense.
You may sign up to play in the Contest at any point prior to the NFL season no later than five minutes prior to the first kickoff of the first game of the NFL Season, Thursday September 6 2018. Any entries submitted after this deadline will be considered invalid and removed from the contest.
The eligible participant whose team scores the most starting lineup points over the entire season will be declared the Grand Prize Winner (the "Grand Prize Winner") and will receive the one (1) grand prize ("Grand Prize") to be awarded in accordance with these Official Rules. The Grand Prize consists of Two Thousand Five Hundred Dollars (US$2,500.00), to be awarded in the form of a check and/or any other means Administrator deems fair and appropriate in Administrators sole discretion. The winning participant may choose to accept in lieu of the cash prize an entry “The Ultimate Fantasy Football Experience” which includes:

• Two (2) night stay at a Las Vegas Hotel (to be determined) (valued up to $500)
• Two (2) Roundtrip tickets to Las Vegas from anywhere in the continental United States (valued up to $800)
If more than one eligible participant is tied for the highest score (to two decimals) for the entire season, the tiebreakers are the following:
1. Highest scoring QB on roster from weeks 1 through 17 – if tied, #2.
2. Highest scoring RB on roster from weeks 1 through 17 – if tied, #3.
3. Highest scoring WR on roster from weeks 1 through 17 – if tied, #4.
