The Entrant can pick as many players from each NFL team as they wish.
The Entrant's team will be entered in the overall competition, as well as mini-competitions relating to the Entrant's choices in the registration options.
The Entrant must select NFL players for their fantasy team whose total cost adds up to no more than the designated $18 million salary cap. Players are rated at $4 million, $3 million, $2 million and $1 million, and the Entrant will not be able to complete selection of a team if they have overspent on this limit.
Each fantasy football player will receive the equivalent points for any points scored. In addition a quarterback will score 3 points for each touchdown pass thrown. For example:
• Offensive player scoring a touchdown (including return TDs): 6 points
• Team defense scoring a touchdown (e.g. interception return): 6 points
• Quarterback throwing a touchdown pass: 3 points
In addition players can score points as follows:
• Rushing or receiving yards: 1 point per 10 yards gained
• Passing yards: 1 point per 30 yards gained
• Sack: 3 points
• Defensive turnover (interception or fumble recovery): 3 points
TRACKING A TEAM
When the Entrant selects their team they will asked to choose a Login name, team name and a password in order to track the performance of their team. Every Tuesday at 2:00pm (GMT), Entrants will be able to check on their scores for the weekend and see how they are ranked.
The Entrant can trade as many football players as they wish each week within the salary cap budget. When making trades the Entrant will be able to access a database of information about the fantasy football players to help in making decisions about which players to select, including their most recent stats.
