How to Play
Using a salary cap of $100 Million, pick your team of 10 NBA basketball players who you think will rack up the most points each round of the NBA playoffs using our Head2Head (or "H2H") scoring system. All players have been assigned a salary based on past performance and expected performance during the playoffs. Your players will earn H2H Fantasy Points based on their actual on-court performance.
All entries will be placed in a 28-team league made up of four 7-team divisions. You'll have the option to create or join a buddy pool (2 up to 28 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 NBA playoffs, your players earn points for their actual on-court performance. Points are awarded according to the official H2H scoring system. For a complete breakdown of the scoring system, click Scoring.
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 Durant for Jokic or Giannis for Embiid… You make call! Individual trades cost $3.00 each, or choose from 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 round #1 on the phone is Friday, April 14th at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, or via the Internet before the start of the final series of the first round of the NBA playoffs on Sunday, April 16th. Note that flexible trading will be in effect, meaning players lock at the start of each series.
Protect Your Lineup.
Add Injured Player Protection to your fantasy team and you'll no longer have to worry about player injuries that may crop up after the trade deadline. Plus it comes with 5 FREE trades, so it's a no-brainer! If you're interested, check out the FAQ for details on how the service keeps your lineup covered.
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!
