Mailed entries without sufficient postage are void.
  7. Leagues. Each entry will be placed into a 12-team league. Each league is generally determined in a random manner. Without exception, the same rules and trade deadlines and restrictions bind all teams in a given league.
    • League Assignments. Prior to The Draft, all All-Star Entry, Basic Package and Alternative Entry Package teams will be placed in a standard league. All High Stakes entries will be placed in a separate High Stakes league. Head2Head Sports reserves the right to mix High Stakes and All-Star teams to complete a full, 12 team league. In the case of such a mixed league, the league prizes will be awarded to teams based on the respective entry fee detailed in the Prizes paragraph below and will not be pro-rated.
    • Buddy Leagues. You may form your own league or play with friends by sending up to 12 entries in the same envelope for mailed entries, or by joining a private Internet Buddy Pool group up to 12 teams for Internet entries. If less than 12 entries are submitted, the league will be filled with other entries. Entries that are not received in the same envelope or are not entered in the same private group or buddy league on the Internet, may request placement in the same league, but are not guaranteed to be placed in the same league. Buddy leagues/pool registration requests must be submitted four (4) hours before the registration deadline outlined above.
    • Draft Order. Head2Head Sports will run a random number generator approximately sixty (60) minutes prior to the scheduled draft time to randomly assign the league's draft order. Trading of the draft order is not allowed. Each team will play all other teams in their league once over the first 11 weeks of the NFL season.
    • League Draft. All league drafts will be held online beginning Friday, August 23rd, 2019 and ending on Saturday, September 7th, 2019. Each league will consist of 12 teams, and each draft will last for 16 rounds, with each team selecting a player in each round in a serpentine fashion (team 1 through team 12, team 12 through team 1, team 1 through team 12 etc.). Teams will be seated in a pre-determined random draft order. During the draft, each team will have a maximum of 1 minute to make their selection. Each team will be alerted of the time at 45 seconds. If a team does not make a pick in the allotted time, or the team is a Basic Package or Alternative Entry Package, a pick will be automatically selected by the system based on the owner's pre-draft player rankings. Each team must draft the minimum number of players to fill a starting lineup.
    • Multiple Teams. In order to keep the leagues as competitive as possible, owners will not be permitted to request to have multiple teams placed in the same league. Depending on league availability at the time of entry, it may not be possible to place all owner teams in separate leagues.
  8. Roster Limits. Each team may have a maximum of 16 players. Each team must have 9 players in their starting lineup and 7 players on their bench. There are no position requirements for Bench players.
  9. Starting Lineups. Only players in the starting lineup will earn points. Starting lineups must consist of the following 9 players:
    • 1 Quarterback (QB)
    • 2 Running Back (RB)
    • 2 Wide Receivers (WR)
    • 1 Tight End (TE)
    • 1 Placekicker (PK)
    • 1 Team Defense/Special team (D/ST)
    • 1 Flex player (Any position - QB, RB, WR, TE, PK, D/ST)
  10. The Draft Period. A Draft Period begins every Tuesday and runs through the immediately following Monday. The first of sixteen (16) Draft Periods begins with the first pro football game played in NFL Week 1. The final Draft Regular Season period ends with the last game played in NFL Week 11. The Draft League Championship Games will be played during NFL Week 12. The Draft Playoffs will begin with NFL Week 13 and finish at the conclusion of NFL Week 16. Games played in NFL Week 17 do not count. All dates are subject to change. Statistics for games that are postponed will be counted in the weeks when the games are actually played.
  11. Prizes. Prizes will be awarded as detailed below:
    • Overall Playoff Prizes (Based on total points in NFL Weeks 13 through 16)
      • The Draft Champion = $10,000

    • Highest Single Week Score (all participants from all leagues)
      • Winner = $200 (Most points in any one week, NFL Weeks 1-16)
  12. Weekly Tiebreaker. In the event your team's H2H point total equals that of your opponent, the team with the higher cumulative points will post a win for the week. If a tie still exists (e.g. week 1), the winner will be determined by the team with the most quarterback points for that week. If a tie still exists, the team with the most running back, wide receiver, tight end, kicker and defense/special team points, in that order, will determine the winner. If a tie is still not broken after applying the preceding tiebreakers, then the winner will be determined randomly by the Commissioner's computer. These tiebreakers apply to individual games.
  13. League Championship Game. Week 12 of the NFL season will determine each League Champion by means of a single League Championship Game. The two participants in the League Championship game will be 1) the team with the best win-loss record vs. 2) the remaining team with the highest cumulative point total. Each of the League Champions, League Runners-up plus Wildcards teams will advance to The Draft Playoffs.
  14. Week 12 Play. Although the League Championship Game matches just two of twelve teams per league, it is very important that all teams submit their strongest possible lineup for Week 12. Playoff and Consolation Bowl eligibility and formats are based on teams' point totals through Week 12. See paragraphs 14 and 15 for more details. Week 12 is also the final week to pick up free agents; no free agents may be selected during The Draft Playoffs.
  15. League Tiebreakers. If there is a tie for the best record (wins and losses) in a league after 11 games the tiebreaker is:
    1. Head-to-Head winner in the regular season
    2. Total points during the regular season
    3. Total points in Week 11
    4. Total points in Week 10, and then if necessary, Week 9, etc. until the tie is broken
    If there is a tie for the total points in a league after 11 games, the tiebreaker is:
    1. Head-to-Head winner in the regular season
    2. Regular season won/loss record (weeks 1-11)
    3. Total points in week 11
    4. Total points in Week 10, and then if necessary, Week 9, etc. until the tie is broken
    If there is a tie in a League Championship Game the tiebreaker is:
    1. Head-to-Head winner in the regular season
    2. Total points during the regular season
    3. Regular season won/loss record (weeks 1-11)
    4. Total points in week 11
    5. Total points in Week 10, and then if necessary, Week 9, etc. until the tie is broken
  16. The Draft Playoff Eligibility. All League Champions, League Runners-up, plus wildcard teams will advance to The Draft Playoffs. Wildcards consist of the top one-third teams of all leagues, based on highest cumulative points during Weeks 1-12, which did not qualify for their respective League Championship Games. It is possible for some leagues to have more wildcard teams than other leagues. The total number of playoff teams, including League Champs, Runners-up, and wildcard teams will be equal to 50% of all teams in The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football.

    If a tie exists for determining the wildcard berths, the tiebreakers are:
    1. Regular season win/loss record
    2. Total points in Week 12, and then if necessary, Week 11, etc. until the tie is broken
  17. The Draft Playoff Format. All playoff teams will begin the playoffs with their per-game average point total from NFL Weeks 1 through 12. This will give a small advantage to the teams that scored more points over the course of the regular season. The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football Playoffs will be a total points tournament from games played in NFL Weeks 13 through 16 (November 28, 2019 through December 23, 2019).

    If there is a tie for total points in the playoffs (after NFL Week 16), the tiebreakers are:
    1. Total points in Weeks 1 through 12.
    2. Regular season won/loss record (Weeks 1-11)
    3. Total points in Week 12, and then if necessary, Week 11, etc. until the tie is broken.
  18. Consolation Bowl. All teams that don't earn a wildcard berth will participate in the Consolation Bowl. The Consolation Bowl will run from NFL Weeks 13 through 16 and the winner will be determined by total points scored during that period plus their per-game average point total (from Weeks 1 - 12). The highest scoring team will win $400.
  19. Lineup Submission. Lineups may be submitted until 1:00 PM Pacific (4 PM ET) on Sundays - note the exception below for early games. If you do not submit a lineup prior to the deadline in a given week, your starting lineup remains the same as the previous week.
    • Opening Weekend. For the NFL Week 1 game played on Thursday, September 5th, 2019, players in that game must be submitted into lineups prior to 5:20 PM Pacific (8:20 PM ET). The Week 1 Thursday game between Chicago and Green Bay is scheduled to begin at 5:20 PM PT (8:20 PM ET). If no Week 1 lineup is submitted by the NFL start time for the game, or your draft does not complete before the start of the game, the order of your draft will determine your Week 1 starting lineup.
    • Early Games. The NFL has scheduled games to be played prior to the Sunday games - ex: Thanksgiving, Thursday night game, and games moved earlier because of weather, etc. In these situations, those players must be submitted into lineups prior to the designated NFL start/kick-off time. Any players from those teams playing at the designated start time will be locked for that period, and you will be unable to move those players on your roster. For the remainder of the period, locked players cannot be dropped or picked up and you will be limited to choose from teams that have not yet played prior to the designated final lineup deadline.
    • Illegal Lineups. If a team does not contain the correct number of position players, contains duplicated players or otherwise has provided an illegal lineup, that team will be disqualified for the scoring period and will score zero (0) points. Illegal lineups that are corrected before the lineup submission deadline for the period will be restored to eligible status and again be eligible to earn H2H points.
  20. Free Agents. Any player who is not on a team roster within your league is considered a free agent for that league. Teams may acquire players not on any roster within their league.
    • Free Agent Acquisitions - Preseason and Regular Season. The free agent system will be a "blind bidding" process. Each team will start the season with an actual US $150.00 free agent maximum budget, and will be permitted to bid for free agents on a weekly basis. No team will be informed of any other team's free agent bids. The team with the highest bid on any given player will be awarded that player. The amount of the winning bid will be (1) charged to the credit card provided by the winning team's owner and (2) deducted from the team's free agent budget. For each winning bid, the winning team must drop a player to make roster room for the free agent acquisition. All bids must be a minimum of $5.00, in increments of dollars (no cents), and include the player name being dropped. If a team's free agent budget goes below $5.00, that team will no longer be allowed to bid for the remainder of the regular season. No bid will be accepted that is larger than a team's remaining free agent budget.
    • Preseason Free Agent Bidding begins on Friday, August 30th and must be completed by Thursday, September 5th at 6 p.m. Eastern/3 p.m. Pacific for NFL Week 1.
    • Regular Season Free Agent Bidding begins on Tuesday, September 10th. Weekly bidding will be accepted during two periods each week on the league website beginning Tuesdays at Noon Eastern/9:00 a.m. Pacific and must be completed by Thursday at 6 p.m. Eastern/3 p.m. Pacific for the first round of bidding. Second chance bidding will open at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific on Thursday and must be completed by 8:00 a.m. Eastern/5:00 a.m. Pacific on Sundays. The Final Free Agent bidding period ends on Sunday, November 24, 2019 for NFL Week 12.
    • Playoff Free Agent Bidding. At the end of Week 12, all free agents become locked and are unavailable for selection throughout The Draft Playoffs (NFL Weeks 13-16). No free agent bidding will be accepted during The Draft Playoffs.
    • Payment. Successful free agent bids will be charged to the credit card on your account. If you don't have a valid credit card on account then you must prepay for your bids prior to making bids. Lack of prepayment or a declined credit card will nullify your free agent bid(s).
    • Conditional Bids. Conditional bids can also be offered with your primary bid. In the event you may lose out on a player, you can place conditional bid(s) for other players during the bidding time frame. The first conditional bid will become relevant only if you lose out on the first (primary) bid. Subsequent conditional bids will become relevant only if the previous conditional bid fails. Primary bids do not require conditional bids. Primary bids may have several sequential conditional bids. Bids will be prioritized in chronological order.
    • Number of Bid Limits. There is no limit to the number of bids each week in which bids are permitted.
    • Tied Bids. If there is a tie, the team that receives the player will be determined in order by:
      1. Lowest season-to-date total points.
      2. Worst winning percentage.
      3. Bid received earliest in the Week.
    • Waivers. To provide equal opportunity for all owners to add players to their roster, a waivers process is used. Anytime a player is dropped from a roster after a successful Free Agent Bid, that player is automatically locked and becomes unavailable for free agent bids until free agent bidding opens for the following week of play. Players that are dropped during Week 12 will be locked and unavailable throughout The Draft Playoffs.
    • Restricted Players. A list of players will be designated as "restricted" meaning that these players are too valuable to be picked up as a free agent. A player on the restricted list may be dropped from a roster, but cannot be picked up as a free agent. Players may be added and removed from this list by The Commissioner's Office as needed.
    • Trading. To minimize the possibility of collusion, trading of players and/or draft picks is not allowed.
  21. Scoring. Each team will be ranked within its league by wins and total points. All total points means total starting lineup points. Only players in each week's starting lineup will accumulate points, which are added together for a weekly score. Statistics of bench players do NOT earn points. If your team's point total for a given week is greater than your opponent's, then your team posts a win for that week. Your team posts a loss if your opponent records more total points in that given week. If your point totals are the same, a tie is declared for that week.

    Each team's total points will be calculated by applying the official The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football scoring system. All points will be rounded to the nearest tenth.
    • Offensive Points. All touchdown passes, runs, receptions, and returns receive 6 points, every 25 yards passing will receive 1 point (5 yds = 0.2 points), every 10 yards rushing will receive 1 point (1 yd = 0.1 point), every 10 yards receiving will receive 1 point (1 yd = 0.1 point), every reception will receive 1 point, every field goal will be worth 3 points, every field goal from 50 yards and over will receive an additional 3 points, all two-point conversion runs, passes and receptions will earn 2 points (Yards and the point for a reception do not apply to 2PT conversions), and every extra point kick will receive 1 point. All interceptions thrown will receive (-2) points and all fumbles lost to the opposing team will receive (-2) points. Return yards and two-point conversion yards do not count. All individual touchdowns will count, including punt and kickoff returns.
    • Defense/Special Teams. All defensive touchdowns (including kickoff, punt, fumble and interception returns) will receive 6 points. All safeties will receive 6 points, a fumble recovery or an interception will earn 4 points, and a sack will receive 2 points. Shutouts will receive 10 points, 2 through 6 points allowed will receive 6 points, 7 through 13 points allowed will receive 4 points, 14 through 20 points allowed will receive 2 points, 21 through 27 points allowed will receive 0 points, 28 through 34 points allowed will receive (-2) points, 35 through 41 points allowed will receive (-4) points, and 42 or more points allowed will receive (-6) points. Points allowed include ALL points scored by the opposing team.
    • Schedule Changes. Scoring is based only on the games actually played each week. If, for any reason, a player's game is postponed (due to weather, etc.) you will only receive points for that game if you have the player on your active roster the day the game is officially completed.
  22. The Commissioner's Office. An independent management company, Head2Head Sports ("H2H"), will serve as the Commissioner Office, an official standards and practices committee, as it relates to decisions and rulings regarding The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football.
