Prizes

Cash prizes are awarded in U.S. dollars and are awarded to the principal owner of the team. Teams can split prizes among multiple owners by filling out the proper paperwork with SportsHub Technologies' accounting department before season's end. In the event of a tie, cash prizes are divided evenly among those who have tied.

League

League prizes are awarded to the top 2 teams in the following format:

  • 1st Place: Best H2H record and most total points.
  • 2nd Place: Next highest total points team.

If two teams split the h2h title and the total points title after Week 13, then those 2 teams will play a league playoff from weeks 14 - 16 total points to determine 1st and 2nd place.

League Prizes
1 $1,500
2 $700
Overall

The 2 league prize winners automatically qualify for the overall championship round. A 3rd league qualifier only if H2H league champion had fewer points than this team. Teams will carry their weekly scoring average from the first 13 weeks of competition (i.e. 130.15 points) into the playoffs and then add their point totals from Weeks 14, 15 and 16 to that initial total to determine the overall champion.

Wild Card Teams:
Any team outside of the top two in each league that finishes in the top 15 percent of the total number of teams (Top 360 if we finish with 2,400 total teams) also can earn a Wild Card spot in the Championship Round if they didn’t earn a spot through their league finish. In that scenario, the top 360 teams in Total Points after Week 13 are guaranteed a spot in the Championship Round.

Overall Bonus Prize:
Regular Season (Week 1 - 13) Total Points Leader wins $1,600.

Consolation Round:
Those teams which did not advance to the playoffs will carry their weekly scoring average from Weeks 1-13 into a consolation round playoff and add their weekly totals during Weeks 14-16 to determine the consolation round prizes.

Setting Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) Preferences

The NFFC will use Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) preferences for draft preferences in all Rotowire Online Championship leagues. The Draft Preferences are listed as soon as you click on your team link. There you will see a list of 1 through 12 in order and an "Edit Preferences" link. Edit your list as often as you'd like and just save your preferences each time before the required deadline for this league.

Here's what KDS does: The KDS process allows owners to rank their order of preference for Draft Day, ranking their preferences 1 through 12 BEFORE the leagues are randomly selected. Some owners would rather draft in the middle, if they are selected early in their league; others like to stay near the top and others like to move down to the lower end. KDS allows that if you are fortunate enough. A sample KDS from an owner could look like this:

9
10
4
3
5
2
7
6
8
11
12
1

If an owner wants the third pick and he is selected No. 1 overall in his league, he would choose 3 as his top option and he would then be moved to third in that league on Draft Day. NFFC officials will look at every owner's Draft Preferences after the leagues and orders are randomly selected, pick the highest available preference for each owner and then announce the draft orders for each league.

Random League/Draft Spot Selections

The NFFC will set each Rotowire Online Championship league as they fill on a first-come, first-served basis. Once that league is filled for that date, the league will be closed or signups will continue for a second or third league for that date and time.

Online Drafts

All Online Leagues will hold their drafts at playnffc.sportshubtech.com. Once you have signed up, you'll find your team link for this league under MY TEAMS section. There you'll find a PRE-DRAFT RANK LIST link where you can rank the player default list for all online drafts and all of the players will show up in the draft room exactly as you have ranked them. If you do not setup a pre draft ranking, the player default list will appear as SportsHub Technologies has it. Once the league has filled, the DRAFT ROOM link will appear and you'll be able to enter the draft room. There is a DRAFT BOARD link within the draft room that allows you to see colored stickers of every player being selected and to easily see the draft results.

Each league will be comprised of 12 teams, and each draft will consist of 20 rounds, with each team selecting players in each round using 3RR (3rd Round Reversal).

If an NFFC participant inadvertently leaves the draft with an illegal lineup (for instance, was without a QB), then the NFFC will drop the last pick made by that team (or more picks if needed) and add the last player at that position on the NFFC's final Cheat Sheet on Draft Day to make that lineup legal. The NFFC participant could replace the player who was assigned after the error was discovered during the first FAAB period. All lineups must be legal before the season starts and the NFFC will correct all roster errors that may have been missed at the draft. All decisions by the NFFC commissioner involving final rosters are official.

Third Round Reversal:
The Rotowire Online Championship will use Third Round Reversal for all drafts. This means in round one the draft order will go team 1 through team 12 and in round 2 the draft order will be team 12 through team 1. Then in round 3 the order will be team 12 through team 1 and then continue in serpentine fashion after that.

Here is how the draft order will go:

  • Round 1: 1-12
  • Round 2: 12-1
  • Round 3: 12-1
  • Round 4: 1-12
  • Round 5: 12-1
  • Round 6: 1-12
  • Round 7: 12-1
  • Round 8: 1-12
  • Round 9: 12-1
  • Round 10: 1-12
  • Round 11: 12-1
  • Round 12: 1-12
  • Round 13: 12-1
  • Round 14: 1-12
  • Round 15: 12-1
  • Round 16: 1-12
  • Round 17: 12-1
  • Round 18: 1-12
  • Round 19: 12-1
  • Round 20: 1-12

Time Limit for Draft:
There will be a 1 minute time limit for each owner to make his/her pick during each round of the Rotowire Online Championship draft. If a participant does not make a selection in the allotted time, the computer will select the top player from that owner's Player Queue and if no player is in the queue then the top available player from the player's default list will be selected. If there is a computer failure, an error made with a selection by an owner or any other type of technical malfunction, the draft moderator can stop the draft at any time and correct the error and then resume the draft. The NFFC reserves the right to allow the draft moderator to roll-back the draft if a technical error occurred, but if the desired player had already been selected before the draft was stopped, that player is no longer available to be drafted.

Commissioner Decisions:
All decisions made by the NFFC commissioner are final. Tough decisions sometimes must be made about eligibility rules, lineups, etc., and NFFC participants must accept the unbiased ruling of the NFFC commissioner.

Roster Requirements

Maximum of 20 players at all times.

Starting Lineup Requirements

Starting lineups will consist of:

  • 1 Quarterback
  • 2 Running Backs
  • 3 Wide Receivers
  • 1 Tight End
  • 1 Flex (RB, WR, TE)
  • 1 Kicker
  • 1 Team Defense / Special Teams
Position Eligibility

Players will be eligible at one position during the season and designated for that position before the season by SportsHub. Should a player move to another primary position before the start of the season, Sportshub reserves the right to give that player a second eligible position. No player will ever lose the eligibility originally designated by Sportshub, but a second position could be added if deemed necessary by Sportshub. All decisions made by the Sportshub commissioner regarding eligibility are final.

Lineup Submission

All lineups may be submitted on the league web site and must be entered five minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff for the game affected.

Trades Between Managers

To minimize the possibility of collusion, there will be no trading allowed.

Free Agents

Free Agent Bidding Process:
Any player who is not on a team roster within your league is considered a free agent for that league. The free agent system will be a "blind bidding" process for each individual league. Each team will start with 1,000 free agent "dollars" for the season, and will be permitted to bid for free agents on a weekly basis with a minimum bid of $1 per player. Teams will not be able to see 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 deducted from the winning team's free agent dollars. For each winning bid, the winning team must drop a player to make roster room for the free agent acquisition. If a team's free agent dollars go to zero, that team will no longer be allowed to bid for the rest of the season. No bid will be accepted that is larger than a team's available free agent dollars. All bids must be in increments of dollars (no cents). Only winning bids and the runner-up bids on each player will be shown after the FAAB bidding period for each NFFC league.

Bidding Time Frame:

The NFFC bidding process will start the week before the NFL Season Openers and run for the first time on Wednesday, September 5 and again on Friday, September 7 for all leagues that drafted before those dates. FAAB will run every week from Week 1 through Week 13. Bids will be accepted on the league website from Saturday morning through the FAAB deadlines on Wednesday and Friday. Rosters will be updated shortly after the 10 pm ET deadlines with the results of all successful bids.

Conditional Bids:
Conditional bids can also be offered. 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 bid. Subsequent conditional bids will become relevant only if the previous conditional bid fails. Bids do not require conditional bids. Bids may have several sequential conditional bids, but the system always processes them from highest dollar value to lowest dollar value.

Number of Bids Limit:
There is no limit to the number of bids that may be submitted each bidding time frame in which bids are permitted.

Tied Bids:
If there is a tie bid during the season, the team that receives the player will be determined in order by

  • Worst league record
  • Lowest total points
  • Highest points against
  • Lowest draft spot

Any tied bids during the first FAAB period will be given to the team with the lowest draft order from Draft Day.

Commissioner Review of Player Drops:
All player drops for free agents are subject to review by the NFFC commissioner and can be revoked if the dropped player is deemed too valuable to be offered to that league's free agent pool, thus damaging the credibility of the overall contest. In the case of a "star" player being dropped in a league for a valid reason, the NFFC commissioner reserves the right to allow the cut but keep the player out of that league's free agent pool for any length of time, possibly the entire season. All decisions by the NFFC commissioner will be final.

Taxes

If the principal team owner's prize winnings are $600.00 or greater (or any other threshold subsequently established by the IRS), the National Fantasy Football Championship ("NFFC") must file a Form 1099 with the IRS at the end of this calendar year. We will request your social security number and signature on this form. The form contains the amount paid to you and you will receive a copy of the form for tax purposes. SportsHub Technologies pays the principal team owner of each NFFC team that was submitted on the entry form and you are responsible for paying any taxes that result from your cash prize; please consult your income tax advisor for filing advice. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, SportsHub Technologies reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes. After 12 months, any unclaimed prize will be forfeited.

Eligibility & Registration

The NFFC is open to individuals who are at least 18 years of age or older (19 years in Nebraska and Alabama, and 21 years in Massachusetts) and are a resident of the United States of America or Canada. Notwithstanding the foregoing, residents of Washington State, Delaware, Louisiana, Montana, Arizona and Iowa are not eligible to register or play in the NFFC. All registrations must be in the full legal name of the primary team owner, though owners will have the option to add a co-manager(s).

Official Rules

Registration for, and continued participation in, the NFFC constitutes your full and unconditional agreement to these official rules ("Official Rules") and to SportsHub Technologies decisions relating thereto. SportsHub Technologies' decisions in regards to these Official Rules and all matters pertaining to the NFFC are final and binding.

Refunds

Once a participant submits valid payment, no money will be refunded unless the NFFC event for which such participant has registered has been canceled. A team spot is considered filled when the entire entry fee is paid. SportsHub Technologies reserves the right to cancel any entries which are not part of a full league. In addition, SportsHub Technologies retains the right to deny, at its sole discretion, eligibility of any individual to register for any NFFC game or event and/or participate in any NFFC game or event, even after the registration fee has been paid, but in such case, the entry fee will be refunded. Under no condition shall SportsHub Technologies be held responsible for any loss or liability related to any expenses incurred by a denied entrant or any person affiliated with that denied entrant. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that any participant or co-manager is banned from the NFFC as the result of any violation of the Official Rules, then no refund will be given.

Cancellation

At its sole discretion, SportsHub Technologies reserves the right to terminate any NFFC game, event or league at any time prior to the completion of the season due to any acts of God, natural disasters, terrorism, change in applicable law, interruption of the season (including strikes, lockouts and/or use of replacement players), or any other situation beyond the control of SportsHub Technologies. In the event of any such termination by SportsHub Technologies, all entry fees will be refunded, with the exception of any live event fees (if such live event has already occurred).

At its sole discretion, SportsHub Technologies reserves the right to terminate any NFFC game, event or league (including the NFFC Main Event) if there are an insufficient number of teams prior to the scheduled start of the league. In this unlikely event, SportsHub Technologies will refund all entry fees within 48 hours of cancellation notice and/or provide a new application form with the newly stated prize figures. In this situation, all pre-registered applicants have the right to a full refund or to agree to play for the newly announced prize structure. SportsHub Technologies is not responsible for any loss or liability incurred by any participant or co-managers due to cancellation of any NFFC game, event or league, including but not limited to travel or hotel expenses, time taken off from employment, etc.

Code of Conduct

All participants and co-managers are expected to behave in lawful, respectful and sportsman-like fashion at all live draft events, throughout the NFFC season, and during use of any NFFC website, including, but not limited to comments posted on any NFFC message board. Additionally the NFFC events, games and/or leagues may not be used for any form of gambling. Any conduct or message board post by a participant, co-manager or other person which is deemed by SportsHub Technologies, in its sole discretion, to be unlawful, or to have the effect of intimidating, harassing, offending or otherwise harming any other participant, co-manager, guest, or NFFC/SportsHub Technologies representative, is strictly prohibited. SportsHub Technologies reserves the right, in its sole discretion to ban any person from current and/or future participation in the NFFC and/or from use of the message boards if such person engages in any such prohibited conduct or is otherwise in violation of any of these Rules. In addition, any person engaging in such conduct forfeits any rights to a refund, as well as any potential rights to a prize award. SportsHub Technologies shall not be responsible or held liable to any person for damage to property or personal injury or death arising from the acts or omissions of any third parties. Any participants or co-managers who collude, or attempt to collude, or who attempts to blackmail, bribe or otherwise influence any representative of SportsHub Technologies/NFFC, or who otherwise attempts to sabotage the league, in an effort to alter the results or outcome of any NFFC game will be disqualified and will be prohibited from winning any prize award. If a participant is banned from participation in a current NFFC game, then SportsHub Technologies reserves the right, to take those actions which it sees fit, in its sole discretion with respect to such banned participant?s team. Any criminal behavior may be referred to the appropriate authorities.

Errors

The deadline for submitting any dispute or claim regarding the operation of any league draft is one hour after the conclusion of the draft itself; further, leaving any live draft event without submitting any dispute or claim regarding the draft constitutes your waiver of any right to challenge any aspect of the draft. You are strongly urged to double-check your lineups, trades, and free agent moves throughout the season, as SportsHub Technologies/NFFC will not be held liable for any errors in entering lineups, trades or free agent moves, and SportsHub Technologies/NFFC will not intervene or alter a transaction after lineups, trades or free agent moves are due.

Prize Splitting

Prize splitting amongst the principal registrant and co-managers is available, provided that the principal registrant has authorized payment to his co-managers in writing and in advance of the completion of the season. In order to authorize prize-splitting, the principal registrant must completely fill out and sign the authorization form designated by SportsHub Technologies (including the name and address of the co-manager(s) and the applicable prize percentage to be paid to each co-manager(s)). Both the principal registrant and each co-manager designated on a prize-splitting form will be required to fill out a W-9. No prize money will be distributed until all necessary forms have been received by SportsHub Technologies. Both the principal registrant and the co-manager(s) will receive IRS Form 1099 reflecting the prize money paid to each. If SportsHub Technologies deems, in its sole discretion, that the appropriate documentation and/or authorization has not been received, or has not been received in a timely fashion, then SportsHub Technologies will pay prize payments only to the principal registrant.

Communication Access

All NFFC team owners must have internet access and a valid e-mail address for communication. SportsHub Technologies is not responsible for any issues which impede or interfere with the transmission or receipt of any transaction, including but not limited to, draft selections, trades, free agent moves and lineups. SportsHub Technologies is also not responsible for the failure of any telephone networks/lines, internet connections, software/hardware, or internet congestion/transmission rates.

Each participant and co-owner hereby releases and holds harmless SportsHub Technologies and its parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives from and against any and all liability for any injuries, losses or damages of any kind to person (including death) and property, arising in whole or in part, directly or indirectly from participation in any NFFC event, game or league, as well as acceptance or use of any prize award.

Disputes; Limitation of Liability; Disclaimer

Each participant and co-owner agrees that (i) all issues and questions regarding the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or your rights and obligations in connection with the NFFC shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the state of Illinois, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules; and (ii) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the NFFC or any prize awarded will be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, or the appropriate state court located in Hennepin County, Minnesota; and (iii) in no event shall SportsHub Technologies liability to you for any and all damages, losses or causes of action exceed $250; and (iv) in no event shall SportsHub Technologies, its parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives, be liable for any punitive, incidental and consequential damages.
