Playoff Salary Cap

How to Play

Easy to play!

Using a salary cap of $100 Million, pick a team of 8 pro baseball players, a utility position and a pitching staff that you think will score the most points each round of the MLB postseason using the unique Head-2-Head scoring system. All players have been assigned a salary based on past performances and expected performance. You must choose 1 Catcher, 1 First Baseman, 1 Second Baseman, 1 Third Baseman, 1 Shortstop, 3 Outfielders, 1 Pitching Staff and 1 Flex Position (any position player - a second pitching staff is not allowed). Your players will earn Head2Head Fantasy Points based on their actual on-field performance.

Go Head2Head!

Just like our regular season game, all entries will be placed in a 30-team league made up of six 5-team divisions. You'll have the option to create or join a buddy pool (2 up to 30 players) with your friends, family, or co-workers. Or, if you prefer, join a public league! There is no head-2-head play or elimination in the playoffs, so simply score more points than the other teams in your league and you will win!

Score Big Points!

Each round during the MLB postseason, including the Wild Card round, your players earn points for their actual on-field performance. Points are awarded according to the official Head2Head scoring system. For a complete breakdown of the scoring system, click the Game Details link.

Making Trades.

During the playoffs, your players may get injured, suspended, miss the next round of the playoffs, or fall into your doghouse. To maintain the strongest lineup possible you can make trades. Dump Freeman for Guerrero or Turner for Bogaerts… You make the call! Individual trades cost $3.00 each, however, you may purchase for as low as $1.80 each with one of the following discounted trade packages: 10 trades for $25 (save $5), 20 trades for $40 (save $20) or 50 trades for $90 (save $60).

The deadline for picking your team for the Wild Card round will be on Tuesday, October 3rd. All Round 1 rosters will be locked on Tuesday with the start of the last series.

Talk some smack!

Use league messaging to talk some smack to your opponents or buddies in your league. You'll receive a message indicator on your team account and and email alert that you've been sent a message. This is a great way to talk up your game and get to know your opponents!

Win Big Prizes.

Winners, including league and overall winners, will be determined by most cumulative points earned during the playoffs. Grand prizes and League prizes are all yours for the taking. Click Prizes for more detail.
