H2H Salary Cap

How to Play

You are the owner, general manager, and coach of your very own pro basketball franchise. It's up to you to decide the starters each week. Using an imaginary $100 million bank account, pick your team of 10 NBA players (any position), who you think will rack up the most points each week using the unique Head2Head scoring system. All of the players listed have been assigned a salary based on past performance and expected performance this season. Your players will earn Head2Head Fantasy Points based on their actual on-court performance.

Head2Head Competition

Your team is placed in a 28-team league made up of four 7-team divisions. During the H2H Regular Season, which runs from Wednesday, October 25th through Sunday, April 14th, you will compete Head2Head each week against a new opponent. If during the week your fantasy basketball team earns more H2H points than your opponent's team, then you post a win for that week! At the end of the H2H Regular Season, the top 15 teams in each league will qualify for the H2H Playoffs.

The Playoffs

At the end of the regular season the top three teams in each division will qualify for the H2H Playoffs. In addition, three teams from each league that did not automatically qualify for the H2H Playoffs will earn "wildcard" playoff berths. The H2H Playoffs will run concurrent with the pro basketball playoffs, excluding the NBA Play-In Tournament, starting approximately Saturday, April 20th and running to the end of the NBA Finals. Playoff information will be sent via email at the end of the regular H2H season. There is no Head2Head play and no elimination in the H2H Playoffs. H2H Playoff winners, including the Grand Prize winner, will be determined by the most cumulative points earned during the H2H Playoffs.

Talk some smack

Important tips

Have fun!! H2H Fantasy Basketball is intended solely for entertainment purposes. But we all know that losing sucks. Try any combination of asking for our advice, throwing objects or even some 12 ounce curls to bring back your sanity.

Keep watch for "sleepers" (players who have low salaries and yield high H2H point totals). Take note that the salaries may change twice during the season. Once in the middle of the season some salaries will decrease only. Just prior to the playoffs all player salaries may go both up or down.
