A full breakdown of the scoring system for our 2022-23 NFL Fantasy Football season game is provided below in the info-graphic.
Please note, if you participated in our 2021-22 NFL season games or daily/weekly fantasy contests, the Scoring Rules are identical and have not changed since.
The scoring system used is called PPR (points-per-reception). It rewards players with 1 point for each catch they make.
PPR favours Wide Receivers and pass-catching Tight Ends as generally, they have the most receptions in a game.
Running Backs who catch passes are also more attractive as they gain points for rushing yards, receiving yards and a point per reception out of the backfield.
On defense, teams who create turnovers (especially interceptions) are sought after as they have the potential of running back a turnover for a touchdown (6 points plus the 1 or 2 pts for the turnover).
£10,000 MIN GUARANTEE PRIZE POOL
Our 2022-23 NFL Fantasy Football Season Game tournament has a progressive prize pool this time around.
However, as the contest has now exceeded the minimum entries required to hit the £10,000 guarantee, the prize pool will now continue to grow with each new entry before the Gameweek 1 deadline.
The amount of players who will win a cash prize is this contest is fixed at 20% of total entrants. For example, if there are 3000 entrants then the top 600 will win a cash prize.
The distribution of the prizes will change automatically according to the number of total entries, ranging from around 1.5x the entry fee for the lowest places to a large prize for the first place winner.
In this specific NFL Fantasy Football Season Game tournament, the outright winner will win a guaranteed 1st place prize of 10% of the total prizepool. For example, if the total prizepool at the end of the registration period is £20,000, then the first place finisher will receive £2,000, guaranteed.
The MINIMUM 1st place prize for this contest is £1,000!
All other paid spots will be calculated automatically as more users enter, so be sure to keep an eye on the ‘Prizes’ tab inside the contest itself for up to date numbers.
