The Draft

The Draft Official Rules

  1. Overview. This is a Game of Skill. The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football ("The Draft") will consist of an unlimited number of teams competing for cash and merchandise prizes. The final number of teams will be divided into leagues of 12 teams each. The regular season will run from NFL Week 1 through NFL Week 11. Each league will hold a League Championship Game in NFL Week 12. The two participants in the League Championship Game will be the team with the best win/loss record vs. the remaining team with the highest cumulative point total. All league champions, league runners-up and predetermined number of wildcard teams (top 50% of all teams ranked in order of total points), will qualify for The Draft playoffs. The Draft playoffs will run from NFL Week 13 through NFL Week 16 and will consist of these playoff teams competing in total points style tournament until the champion and all other prize winners are determined. All teams that do not qualify for The Draft playoffs will be eligible for the Consolation Playoffs.
  2. Eligibility. The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football is open to legal residents of the 50 United States, Washington, D.C. and Canada (excluding Puerto Rico and Quebec) 18 years of age or older. THIS CONTEST IS VOID WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. However because of state laws, residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Virginia and Washington (collectively "Restricted States") may enter The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football only under the Basic Package or Alternative Entry Package options and are restricted from entering a High Stakes League. The Draft - Championship Fantasy Football participants must be 18 years of age or older as of September 8, 2016. All employees and immediate family members of Head2Head Sports, their sponsors, advertising, production, and fulfillment agencies are not eligible for prizes. Head2Head Sports reserves the right to disqualify any entry form that is incomplete or incorrect. Limit four entries per household. If more than four entries from the same household, then only the first four entries, as determined by Head2Head Sports will be eligible for prizes.
  3. Draft. All league drafts will be held online beginning August 25, 2016 and ending on Saturday, September 10th, 2016, as well as Live Drafts in Austin, TX on August 27, 2016, and Dallas, TX on August 28, 2016. 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 predetermined 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, that team's pick is passed over until the next team picks. The team that was passed over will then have 10 seconds to pick before being passed over again. If passed over again, this process continues until the passed over team makes a selection. Each team must draft the minimum number of players to fill a starting lineup but there are no additional rules governing the number of players to be drafted at each position.
  4. Draft Room - Live Events. A maximum of two owners per team will be permitted to sit at the draft table at any given time. Both team owners must sit in their assigned draft order. The Draft will be a non-smoking event. Electronic equipment such as cell phones and laptops will be allowed as long as the equipment is not a disturbance to The Draft and/or its participants. Internet connections and electrical outlets will not be available.
  5. No-Shows - Live Event. If a team owner fails to appear at his/her assigned league table by the official Draft start time of a Live Event, then Head2Head Sports has the option to (a) provide a surrogate to draft on his/her behalf until the team owner arrives, or (b) replace the late team's contest spot with another team. Similarly, if a team owner leaves the draft table for any reason, Head2Head Sports reserves the right to provide a surrogate. Any and all draft picks made by the surrogate in the absence of the team owner will be executed at the discretion of Head2Head Sports or the surrogate. If a team owner fails to login to his/her team for the scheduled draft time of his/her league, his/her team will be auto-drafted using
    1. the user's pre-selected player list, or
    2. the pre-selected player list provided by Head2Head.com.

  9. League Setup. Prior to The Draft live events, Head2Head Sports, LLC, will assign specific league assignments. Head2Head Sports will subsequently run a random number generator 24 hours prior to the live draft to assign draft order. Trading of draft order is not allowed. The Draft Online leagues have draft automation in place, and it generates draft order sixty (60) minutes before the online draft begins. Each team will play all other teams in their league once over the first 11 weeks of the NFL season. Head2Head Sports reserves the right to mix High Stakes teams, MVP teams 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 above.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 12 and 13 for more details.
  13. 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:

    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
  14. 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.

    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
  15. 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.

    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.
  16. Consolation Bowl. All teams that don't earn a wildcard berth will participate in the Consolation Bowl ($400 to the winner).

    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).
  17. The Commissioner's Office. An independent management company, Head2Head Sports LLC, will serve as the Commissioner Office, an official standards and practices committee, as it relates to decisions and rulings regarding The Draft. You may address any questions, disputes, appeals, concerns or suggestions to The Draft Commissioner's Office, c/o Head2Head Sports LLC, 8145 E Evans Road, Suite 3, Scottsdale, AZ 85260, phone (480) 429-8844 or fax (480) 429-0911. Any disputes or appeals regarding the rules will be decided by The Commissioner's Office using its interpretation, intent and spirit; the integrity of the event; as well as the feasibility of accommodating any appeal. The deadline for submitting a rules dispute or appeal is by 4 p.m. Pacific (7 p.m. Eastern) on the Wednesday following the completion of that game or games in which the dispute has occurred. Please include a detailed and lucid account of the dispute and resolution requested. All rulings made by The Commissioner's Office are final and binding.
  18. Eligibility. The Draft is open to legal residents of the 50 United States, Washington, D.C. and Canada (excluding Puerto Rico and Quebec) 18 years of age or older.

    Employees and members of the immediate families (immediate family is defined as parent, sibling or any person residing in the same household as employee or consultant) of Head2Head Sports LLC, ESPN 103.3 FM, and their respective parents, sponsors, affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising agencies and promotion agencies may enter a team but are not eligible for prizes.
  19. 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.
  20. 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, September 2nd and must be completed by Thursday, September 8th at 6 p.m. Eastern/3 p.m. Pacific for NFL week 1.

    Regular Season Free Agent Bidding begins on Tuesday, September 13th. 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 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 27th for NFL Week #12.

    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).
  21. 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.
  22. Number of Bid Limits. There is no limit to the number of bids each week in which bids are permitted.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. Trading. To minimize the possibility of collusion, trading of players and/or draft picks, is not allowed.
  26. Lineup Submission. Lineups may be submitted until 1:00 PM Pacific (4 PM ET) on Sundays, however, any players in Thursday games or early Sunday games will lock at game time.
    1. For the NFL Week #1 game played on Thursday, September 8th, 2016, players in that game must be submitted into lineups prior to 5:30 PM Pacific (8:30 PM ET). The Week #1 Thursday game between Denver and Carolina is scheduled to begin at 5:30 PM PT (8:30 PM ET).
    2. If no Week #1 lineup is submitted, the order of your draft will determine your Week #1 starting lineup.
    3. For players on teams in Thursday games, those players must be submitted into lineups prior to the start time of each Thursday game*
    * check the website for scheduled game start times.

    If you do not submit a lineup by the deadline in a given week, your starting lineup remains the same as the previous week.
  27. 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.
  28. The Draft Scoring System. Each team's total points will be calculated by applying the official The Draft scoring system. All points will be rounded to the nearest tenth. All touchdown passes, runs, receptions, and returns receive 6 points, every 25 yards passing will receive 1 point (5 yds = .2 points), every 10 yards rushing will receive 1 point (1 yd =.1 point), every 10 yards receiving will receive 1 point (1 yd = .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. 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, and 21 through 27 points allowed will receive 0 points. Also 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. Return yards do not count. All individual touchdowns will count, including punt and kickoff returns. 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 roster the day the game is officially completed.
  29. Scoring Discrepancies. Any and all scoring discrepancies affecting a team must be noted and submitted via email to The Commissioner's Office at customerservice@head2head.com by 4:00 PM Pacific (7 PM ET) on the Wednesday following the completion of that week's games. Discrepancies may also be submitted by U.S. mail to The Draft c/o Head2Head Sports LLC, 8145 E. Evans Road, Suite #3, Scottsdale, Arizona 85260). After 4 PM Pacific (7 PM ET) on Wednesday of any given week, all scores will be considered final, unless The Commissioner's Office notes a change in the official statistics of any player. It will be up to the discretion of Head2Head Sports as to whether a change in the official statistics of a player can reasonably be applied to amend the ranking or scoring of any or all teams that are potentially affected by the change in a player's statistics.
  30. League Management. Head2Head Sports LLC will keep track of all league scheduling, free agent transactions, starting lineup submissions, fantasy point calculations, win-loss records, standings, and playoff rankings. All player statistics are provided by SportsDirect.
  31. The Draft Weeks. A Draft Week begins every Tuesday and runs through the immediately following Monday. The first of sixteen Draft Weeks begins with the first pro football game played in NFL Week 1. The final Draft Regular Season week 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.

All team spots are filled on a first-come first-served basis. Head2Head Sports reserves the right to cancel any entries not comprising a full 12-team league. For example, if there are 303 paid entries on the date of The Draft, then the 301st, 302nd, and 303rd entries received, as determined by Head2Head Sports, will be refunded.
