Scoring System


Weekly point totals are accumulated based on the 14 players and 2 Defense/Special Teams on your roster each week. The points week begins with games played on Thursday and ends with games played on Monday except for week 17 which ends on Sunday, December 31, 2017. The weekly prize winners are determined based on total points for applicable games played during the stat week.

To determine Final standings, including division and overall prize winners, each team's best 14 weekly point totals are added together and used to rank the teams within each division and overall. The team with the highest total points from its best 14 weeks will rank first and the team with the lowest total points from its best 14 weeks will rank last.

All points accumulated by the players on your team roster, regardless of what position they actually play during the Contest, contribute to your team's weekly point total. Points by a player or Defense/Special team are only added to your team's weekly point total for those week(s) in which the player or Defense/Special team was actually on your team's roster. Preseason, playoff and Pro Bowl points, do not contribute to your team's weekly point total. The Contest begins with Week 1 and the statistics from the game played on Thursday, September 8th DO COUNT.

Defense Points Allowed is based on the final score of the game. Yards from Defense/Special teams' returns do not count.

For Defense/Special Teams' scoring, a Defensive Team Touchdown is a touchdown scored on a defensive team fumble recovery, an interception, a blocked punt, and a blocked kick; a Special Teams Touchdown is a touchdown scored on a kick return or a punt return. A return of a failed Extra Point or failed 2-Point conversion is not a Defensive/Special Teams Touchdown. Defensive/Special Teams Touchdowns do NOT include touchdowns scored on an offensive team fumble recovery, a faked extra point or a faked field goal. Two point conversion points are awarded to the player scoring the conversion.

Two point conversion points are awarded to the player scoring the conversion.

In the event that any game is postponed or canceled for any reason and the game is not played until the following Tuesday or Wednesday, CDM Sports reserves the right to extend the points week through Wednesday so that statistics for players on the teams in the postponed/canceled game will be included in the Contest. In the event that any game is postponed or canceled for any reason and the game is rescheduled to another week, CDM Sports reserves the right to modify the Official Rules of the Contest.
