Official H2H Football Rules

H2H Football - The Masters Challenge is a game of skill and is void where prohibited by law.

  1. Affiliations. Head2Head ("H2H") Fantasy Football and Head2Head Sports is owned by Sports Information Group, LLC.
  2. Optional Service Package. You may enter H2H Fantasy Football via the Complete package. The Complete Package price is $12.95. The Complete Package fee entitles you to receive all services for your team, including season H2H schedule, weekly team reports, live Internet stats, Internet and telephone customer service and more. All payments must be in U.S. funds. Entries mailed or transmitted with insufficient funds or information or an invalid credit card may be disqualified and will not be processed until the correct amount of payment or information is received. Do not send cash. Make check or money order payable to "Head2Head Sports". Visa, Amex, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards are accepted.
  3. Eligibility. H2H Fantasy Football is open only to residents of the United States of America and Canada (excluding Quebec). THIS CONTEST IS SUBJECT TO ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL LAWS. You must be 18 years or older as of November 15, 2015 to participate. THIS CONTEST IS VOID WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. All employees and immediate family members of Head2Head Sports, their sponsors, advertising, production, and fulfillment agencies are not eligible for prizes. H2H 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 (H2H), will be eligible for prizes.
  4. Final Entry Deadline. All entries must be received by 12:30 pm ET/9:30 am PT on Sunday, November 15, 2015, in order to be eligible to play. Entries must be mailed to H2H Fantasy Football, c/o Head2Head Sports, 8145 E. Evans Road, Suite #3; or logged via this website. Head2Head Sports (H2H) takes no responsibility for misdirected entries, entries that are lost or damaged in the mail, or entries lost, damaged, or illegible because of poor fax transmission. H2H reserves the right to disqualify any entry form that has been incorrectly completed or is not completely legible. Only H2H Fantasy Football entry forms or photocopies are allowed. All entries, along with all copyright, trademark and other proprietary rights associated therewith, become the property of H2H upon submission, and will not be returned to any entrant. Mailed entries without sufficient postage are void.
  5. Rosters. You have been granted an imaginary bank account of $100 Million to buy a roster consisting of one quarterback, three running backs, three wide receivers/tight ends, one kicker, one flex position, and one defense/special team. The defense/special team counts as one player. You may buy a player only for the position designated for him by Head2Head Sports or use him in the flex position. Defense/ST are not eligible for the flex position. During the H2H Masters Challenge, no rosters may ever exceed the $100 Million salary cap. If a pro football player is traded from one pro football team to another, you will continue to receive points for that player as long as he remains on your roster. You must always have 10 players on your roster. Teams submitted with incorrect or incomplete rosters will have a temporary roster assigned to them.
  6. H2H Point scoring system. Each team will be ranked by wins and overall by total points. Your team's total H2H points will be calculated by applying the official H2H scoring system: All touchdown passes, runs, receptions, and returns receive 6 H2H points, every full 25 yards passing will receive 1 H2H point, every full 10 yards rushing will receive 1 H2H point, every full 10 yards receiving will receive 1 H2H point, every field goal will be worth 3 H2H points, every field goal from 50 yards and over will receive an additional 3 H2H points, all two-point conversion runs, passes and receptions will earn 2 H2H points, and every extra point kick will receive 1 H2H point. All interceptions thrown will receive (-2) H2H points. Each fumble lost will receive (-2) H2H point. Each pass reception will receive 1 H2H per reception. All defensive touchdowns (including kickoff, punt, fumble and interception returns) and safeties will receive 6 H2H points, a fumble recovery or an interception will earn 4 H2H points, and a sack will receive 2 H2H point. Shutouts will receive 10 points, 1 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. Return yards and two-point conversion yards do not count. 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 during the period the game is officially completed. In the event of a team turnover of any kind, the scoring credit for the turnover will only count for the original change in possession - any subsequent possession changes during that play are not counted. All H2H Football period scoring is official and final with the start of the new H2H Football period.
  7. Head2Head (H2H) Period. An H2H Period begins every Tuesday and runs through the immediately following Monday. The first of eight (8) H2H Periods begins with the first pro football game played on Thursday, November 12, 2015. The final H2H Period and H2H Regular Season end with the last game played on Sunday, January 3, 2016. Each Period you will be matched against a different team. If your team's H2H point total for that period is greater than your opponent's, then your team posts a win for that H2H Period. Your team posts a loss if your opponent records more H2H points. All dates are subject to change. Statistics for games that are postponed will be counted in the weeks when the games are actually played.
  8. Player Salaries. During the Masters Challenge, player salaries will not change. Unlisted players may be added,  at any time prior to start of the game or during the season based upon participant request and H2H Football Commissioner approval. It is the participant's responsibility to review the Player Selections web pages or Make Trades player list web page for the most recent player list.
  9. Trades. Any or all of your 10 players may be traded each week. A trade consists of dropping one player and picking up another at the same position (quarterback, running back, wide receiver/tight end, kicker, flex position or defense/special team). Plan your trades carefully. Your modified regular season roster will be accepted only if the total team salary after all trades being made at that time does NOT exceed the $100 Million cap. To ensure you have the correct roster in place, confirm your new roster when you have completed trading. If you exit the website or phone call with a Sports Agent without confirming your roster with a confirmation number, your last confirmed roster will be the roster that is scored. The website will not allow you to confirm a roster that exceeds the salary cap. If for any reason H2H experiences technical difficulty with the website, changes to the rosters will not be taken until the website is re-opened. We recommend that you call at least 3 hours before the phone trading deadline. Waiting until the deadline to trade could result in rejection of your trades. Trades must be made via phone, Internet or mail (alternative entrants only). If you do not have a credit card to trade via telephone, fax, or Internet, you may purchase groups of trades by sending a check or money order to Head2Head Sports, 8145 E. Evans Road, Suite #3, Scottsdale, AZ 85260. Trades may be purchased in a group of 10 trades for $25, 20 trades for $40 or 50 trades for $90. If you pay by check or money order, you can only make phone or internet trades after your payment has been received and entered into our game website. Trade package money is good only for the teams assigned under your Member Id#. All approved trades are final.
  10. Trade Deadlines. All trades will become effective with the first pro football game of the next H2H Period only if your trade(s) is made by the appropriate trading deadline immediately preceding that next H2H Period - note the exception below for early games. Players may be traded each week from Tuesday at 10:00 am PT and up until thirty (30) minutes prior to the first game on Sunday via the Internet.
    • Flexible Trading Details: The NFL has scheduled games to be played prior to the final Sunday trading deadline - ex: Thanksgiving, Thursday night games, Saturday games, Christmas Eve and games moved earlier because of weather, etc. In these situations, you have the ability to choose a player or team defense/special team prior to the designated NFL start/kick-off time. Any players on your roster from those teams playing at the designated start time will be locked on your roster for that H2H period. After the designated start time, you will be unable to pick up or drop players or teams from the game(s) that have started. For the remainder of the period you will be limited to choose from teams that have not played prior to the designated final trade deadline.
    • Voided Trades. Head2Head Sports reserves the right to void any and all trades without notice or refund. Your trades may be voided if you attempt to trade away players not on your roster, if you go over the salary cap, attempt to trade player(s) of different positions, or exclude your Member ID# or Player ID#'s. If your trades are voided, your roster will revert to the lineup of the previous H2H Period. Look on your weekly reports for confirmation of your trades. Voided Free Trade Certificates will not be replaced nor applied to a future period.
    • Phone Trades. All regular season phone trades are final as of the weekly trade deadline or early game exception deadline. No changes will be made after the trade deadline. After executing trades, it is each team owner's responsibility to have their trades repeated and to ask for a confirmation number from the sports agent. Each owner is also responsible for the salary cap restriction.
  11. H2H Period Tiebreaker. In the event your team's H2H point total equals that of your opponent, the team with the lower team salary total for that H2H Period will post a win for the week. If the salary totals are the same, the team with the most cumulative points wins. If a tie still exists after applying these tiebreakers, 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.
  12. Masters Challenge Contest winner. If two or more teams have the same Masters Challenge Contest cumulative point totals, the team with the highest score in period #8 will be determined the winner. If a tie still exists, the remaining periods starting with the most recent (i.e. period 7, 6, 5, 4 and so on) will be used until the tie is broken. If the previous tiebreaker can't break the tie we will then prize(s) will be split evenly between the winners.
  13. Single Week High Score Tiebreakers. If two or more teams score the same number of points, the team with the lowest salary cap will be the winner. In the event this doesn't break the tie, the next tiebreaker will be the team with the highest cumulative score for the contest. If a tie still exists after applying both tiebreakers, the prize(s) will be split evenly among the tied teams.
  14. Payment. All charges made through this website and our sports agents will be charged immediately to your credit card. If you do not have a credit card, you may place money on account by sending a check or money order, payable in advance to "Head2Head Sports"; mail to Head2Head Sports, 8145 E.
