This is typical fantasy football league but instead of spending hours drafting your team once prior to the season starting and then getting stuck with that team the whole season, you draft a new team each week. All pro players are available to every team. Each pro player is assigned a dollar value based on their skill and you draft your team while staying under the $60,000 salary cap. Yes, all players are available to every team, no matter how many people draft that player, so you are never stuck with a crappy
How it works:
Each week, starting on Tuesday’s, you draft a new team of 9 players anytime day or night:
1 Def Team
NFL players are given points based on their performance in their respective games.
At the end of the season, total points are tallied up for the entire season and the top 3 players of the year are awarded the prizes below. I will send and email with the current season standings every Tuesday.
It is easy, fun and each week, everyone, no matter how bad they did the week before, has a chance to win with a newly drafted team.
A private invite for the contest will be sent out to every player in the pool.
Your lineups must be in 5 minutes prior to the 1st game of the week. Lineup changes are allowed up to 5 min before the start of the game that player is in. For example, If a player is scheduled to play in the Monday night game, but you find out he is not playing due to injury on Sunday night, you can swap that player out to a player in that same position who has not yet played their game. Obviously, you cannot draft a player who has already started their game or finished their game.
The total fee for the pool for the entire season is $25 ($2.05 per week), payable upfront.
Prizes: (Assuming 20 paid participants)
$25 per entry 20 players = $500
1st Place – $300
2nd Place – $150
3rd Place – $50
All fees collected will be paid out to winners.
You MUST have or Draft Kings Account prior to Sept 7th Deadline. Each weekly Contest on Fanduel is free for our league, so no money is required to join or play Draft Kings each week. All Payments are due in full by Thurs, Sept 7th. Once you decide to play and have signed up for your free FanDuel account, send me your Fanduel username and email address so I can add you the private invite. Invites to the contest each week cannot be shared with anyone, not in the league.
I will accept three forms of payments only:
CASH in person — least desirable
Google Wallet (https://www.google.com/wallet/) Send payments to firstname.lastname@example.org — most desirable
Square Pay (https://cash.me/$marchmelee) — acceptable
Payouts will be made via Google Wallet, or if need be, via Square pay if you have an account.
I will not accept checks. I prefer Google Wallet as it makes it easy to collect the payments and make the weekly payouts to winners. I will not be sending out checks each week or at the end of the season, it takes too much time, checks can get lost, postage, etc. I understand some of you still want to send me a check and understand if you prefer not to play if you prefer not to pay any other way.
In most circumstances, once the Player Pool is established for a Game Set, including positions and salaries, the Player Pool will not be adjusted. In the rare event that there is a mistake within the Player Pool that would significantly impact game quality, DraftKings reserves the right to correct the mistake after contests for that Game Set have become available. This may result in valid lineups becoming invalid. This would most likely occur shortly after the Player Pool becomes available, far in advance of the contest start time, and participants who have entered contests for the Game Set prior to the adjustment will be notified via email.
A “Game Set” is a set of games used for contests; each contest is tied to one Game Set. Contests tied to the same Game Set can be created at different times. Therefore, game policies are based on the timing of a Game Set being made available, not each individual contest.
If the scheduled start time for a game changes after contests for a Game Set containing that game become available, DraftKings will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on Draft Screens and for lineup editing purposes. In the rare case that a game starts before the scheduled start time, all players within that game will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the game has begun.
Cancelled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Games
Players who you selected for your roster as of the time of the lock of the disabled game will remain in your roster and will accrue zero points. Players in disabled games will become locked at the originally scheduled start time of their game. For example, if the game for Player A who plays on Team X is cancelled, Player A will be locked in your roster and you will not be able to change that position and Player A will not accrue any points. The Scoring Period for NFL is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Game Set and 11:59pm ET on the first Wednesday after the last scheduled game within the Game Set.
DraftKings may choose to adjust the Scoring Period for a Game Set at their sole discretion to accommodate schedule changes at any time before 12:00am ET on the date the Game Set is scheduled. If a game is rescheduled to a time outside of the original Scoring Period, DraftKings may disable the game or adjust the Scoring Period to maintain the inclusion of the rescheduled game… For example, if a Sunday 1:00 NFL game is rescheduled to 12:55 PM, DraftKings may move the start time of the Draft Group to 12:55 PM rather than disable the whole game.
Any games that are disabled will be indicated as such on Draft Screens. Emails and other notifications may also be used to notify users of disabled games.
If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Game Set including only one active game and this is known before the contest start time then all contests for that Game Set will be canceled and refunded.
If a Game Set includes only one active game but this was not known until after the contest start time then contests for this Game Set will not be canceled.
Games are “known” to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by DraftKings’ NFL stats-provider, STATS inc.
Example: If a Game Set includes two games at 8pm ET and 10:30pm ET respectively, and the 10:30pm ET game is officially postponed at 6pm ET then all contests for that Game Set are canceled and refunded. If the 10:30pm ET game was not officially postponed until after 8pm ET then contests for that Game Set are not canceled and are played out using only the one active game.
If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Game Set including zero active games, all contests for that Game Set will be canceled and refunded.
