Rules

In Fanball salary cap contests, entrants create a lineup by using players listed in the Player Pool to fill each defined roster requirement. All players have an assigned salary, and a valid roster will not have a salary cap that exceeds $55,000. In addition, the Player Pool will consist of all players expected to be on the active rosters for any team listed in the contest's event set.

Every contest has a defined Fanball Number (FBN) range. All users are tagged with a FBN that evolves as you play, and allows you to compete in contests reserved for similarly skilled players. You can always challenge yourself and play in a higher FBN tier, but players cannot enter a contest if their FBN exceeds the defined range. Contest results will be determined by the total points accumulated by each individual lineup entry based on the scoring system detailed below.

The Fanball Number

The Fanball Number is central to everything they do; theyíve leveled the playing field so you donít have to play in contests against highly experienced DFS players if you donít want to.

The Fanball Number is a numeric rating assigned to every Fanball user. The rating scale ranges from 0-100, and is updated every day after users play a Fanball contest. Much like the player rating system on a video game franchise, the higher your Fanball Number, the more skilled a player they consider you to be.

The Fanball Number is derived by their super computer analyzing game play data for each user with emphasis on which sport you play, winning percentages, size of contests, entry fees and other key variables.

.

Contests are also assigned a numerical rating, which can limit players with certain Fanball Numbers from entering some games. Fanball is attempting to level the playing field while allowing casual and novice DFS players to seek games with their ilk, while allowing the more advanced DFS players to play in different games where they can test their might and become the best of the best.

Scoring

Football (NFL)

Scoring for NFL games is divided into two categories, Offense and Defense. * Bonus points for total yards (passing, rushing, receiving) are only awarded once. For example, a receiver with 155 yards will only get 4 bonus points for yards between 150 - 199; they will not get the 2 bonus points for yards between 100 - 149.

Offense Defense
Passing Yard = 0.04 pts Sack = 1 pt
