Scoring System


Weekly point totals are accumulated based on your player's points each week. The points week begins with games played on Thursday and ends with games played on Monday except for week 17 which is scheduled to be played on Sunday, January 1, 2017.

Points from team victories are NOT included in the Points Bracket and will not be used to calculate rankings in the Points Bracket. You will only accumulate points in the Points Bracket based on your selected player's actual statistics from the game for which you selected him.

The winner of the Survivor Bracket will be the entry or entries who survive each week during the 17 weeks of the Contest. If no entry survives through 17 weeks, the last surviving entry or entries will win the Survivor Bracket and the $5,000.00 cash grand prize. To determine winners in the Points Bracket, entries will be ranked from first to last based on the total points accumulated for each entry during all 17 weeks of the Contest. The entry with the most points accumulated for all 17 weeks finishes first and wins the first place cash prize in the Points Bracket. All other cash prizes in the Points Bracket will be awarded based on the points rankings.

If you forget to make your selection in any week, you will get zero points for that week and you will drop out of the Survivor Bracket. However, you can purchase a Pigskin to stay in the Survivor Bracket. Pigskins are only available for purchase during the week following the week in which your selected player failed to accumulate 29 points. No Pigskins can be purchased after week 8 games.

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 players on the teams in the postponed/canceled game will receive points for that week. In the event that you pick a player from any game that is postponed or canceled and the game is not played by the following Tuesday or Wednesday for any reason, you will get zero points for your pick that week.
