NFL Playoff League Rules/Prizes

The main differences between the Postseason Fantasy Football Leagues and Regular Season Fantasy Football Leagues are...

1) Teams will NOT be awarded wins or losses. Instead, teams will be ranked week in and week out, until the end of the Postseason, in order of the highest scoring team to the lowest scoring team.

2) THERE WILL BE NO TRADES OR TRANSACTIONS THROUGHOUT THE POSTSEASON FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUES! Therefore it becomes necessary not only to draft high quality players, but perhaps more importantly G.M.'s will want to draft players on teams that they think have the best chance of reaching the Super Bowl. It will be a mixture of the best players, and the players that go furthest that will enable you to become your league champion!

We support four distinct starting lineup options...

"Flex" Leagues:
1 QB (quarterback), 2 RB (running back), 3 WR (wide receiver), 1 TE (tight end), 1 FLEX (can choose from either one WR, RB, or TE), 1 K (kicker), and 1 DT (defensive team).

"SUPERFlex" Leagues:
1 QB, 3 RB, 4 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (can choose from either one QB - yes...QB - WR, RB, or TE), 1 K, and 1 DT.

"Traditional" Leagues:
1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 DT.

"MiniFlex" Leagues:
1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (choose from one WR, RB, or TE), 1 K, and 1 DST.

Costs:
We provide six levels of leagues to choose from, "A", "AA", "AAA", "Pro", "AllStar", and "HallOfFamer". The costs per team are $49.99 per "A" team, $99.99 per "AA" team, $249.99 per "AAA" team, $499.99 per "Pro" team, $999.99 per "AllStar" team, and $2999 per "HallOfFamer" team. The entry fee levels do not necessarily correlate to the skills of the players you will find within those leagues.

Winnings:
As you go up in entry fee from $49, all the way up to $2999, a higher percentage of the total pot is kicked back at each entry fee level, with maximum league payouts of 92%!

Prize Claim and Redemption Process:
Once the fantasy season has ended, and all of our prize-winners therefore determined, you will have the option of either applying your winnings towards our NFL Playoff Fantasy Football Leagues, and receving a 5% bonus, and/or applying your winnings towards next season, and earning a 10% bonus, or simply receiving a check. There will be a message on your league home page and on your member home page when the season is over, detailing your options, and advising you how to proceed. If you net over $600 in winnings for the year, a 1099 is required.

Eligibility:
You hereby represent and warrant that you are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations and warranties set forth in these terms and to abide by and comply with these terms.

You are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.

You will abide at all times by these Terms of Use and any other agreements between you and BestFantasyFootballLeague.com regarding your use of the Service or participation in games.

You are not subject to backup withholding tax because: (a) you are exempt from backup withholding, or (b) you have not been notified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that you are subject to backup withholding as a result of a failure to report all interest or dividends, or (c) the IRS has notified you that you are no longer subject to backup withholding.

The Contest is open to individuals who have reached legal age in their respective jurisdiction, and at the time of payment you are physically located in the United States or Canada in a jurisdiction in which participation in the contest is not prohibited by applicable law; void where prohibited by law. BestFantasyFootballLeague.com, at its discretion, may deny eligibility of any individual to participate in the event.

Residents of Arizona, Montana, and Washington State may not set up any new accounts with BestFantasyFootballLeague.com to enter and win prizes in any of our contests. Residents of any other jurisdiction, foreign or domestic, where the contest is prohibited or regulated by law are not permitted to enter. With the new landmark decision in May of 2018 by the Supreme Court of the United States of America striking down the PASPA (professional and amateur sports protection act) of 1992, in conjunction with the fact that fantasy football had already been established by the United States Congress in the UIGEA (unlawful internet gambling enforcement act) of 2006 as indeed not gambling, but rather as anyone who plays fantasy football knows - a game of skill - we are hopeful that in the near future the framework will be set to allow ALL potential participants (who meet the minimum age requirements) to display their skills and knowledge in participating in the game of fantasy football that they so thoroughly enjoy as a recreational activity, regardless of the state in which they may reside. Stay tuned! Also, on that note, if you live in a state that is listed above, CONTACT YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE and let them know this is ridiculous that it is unclear, or even worse disallowed, from you participating in this game of skill that you love, and that if they can't get on the right side of this issue, you will vote them out, and vote in somebody who will. These state representatives are supposed to be working on YOUR behalf, not against it.
