Double Edged Sword - Contestants must be very careful and not bid too low because a winning bid counts a second way for the game. It not only guarantees someone the team they desire, but also HOW MUCH their team is worth. The way it works is the winning bid determines the PERCENTAGE of fantasy points the contestant keeps from their team's score in the match. For example, if someone secures their team with a bid of 17%, this means ALL of their athletes are worth EXACTLY 17% of their fantasy point per game average for the game.
Bidding Range Shrinks - Bidding Range Shrinks-For the first six rounds, the maximum bid allowed DECREASES by 5% for each new round. For example, the bidding range for Round 1 is 1% to 100% and for Round 2 it is 1% to 95%. Following this process, by the 6th round, it is 1% to 75%. For the 7th and 8th rounds, the bidding range is the SAME for both. The maximum bid permitted for each of these rounds is ALWAYS the AVERAGE of the WINNING BIDS for the first six rounds.
Athlete/Team Scoring for Live Games - A team is scored by adding the scores of all six athletes together. Each athlete is scored by taking the points they scored in their live action game and then multiplying it by the percentage of points the contestant secured their team with. For example, if a) Tom Brady is your QB and he scored 16 points in this week’s game AND b) you won your team with a 50% bid, THEN c) you will receive 50% of Brady's points for the match--in this case, 50% of 16 is equal to 8.
Winners Immediately Known for Rewind Games - Contestants immediately know how they finished in the match because the scoring system for all four sports is based on fantasy point per game averages and not live action games. This allows IMMEDIATE scoring for the match once all teams have been secured through the bidding process.
Winners Known Later for Live Games - There are two ways contestants can view the scoring of their live game. First, they can watch the fantasy scoring unfold, from the game room, as the live sporting events play out in real time. They can also click on the game in My Games and view the final score once ALL of the live sporting events have concluded.
Tiebreaker - If a completed match ends in a tie between two or more contestants, the person who secured their team in the LOWER round of bidding always receives the HIGHER position in the overall group standings. For example, Round 5 is a LOWER draft position than Round 2 so the person securing their team in Round 5 would finish ahead of the person who secured theirs in Round 2 in the event they tied.
