The 2014 PLAY THE DRAFT® contest (“Contest”) is a free to play fantasy game experience that lets fans of college and professional football test their sports knowledge by actively trading a portfolio of fantasy “draft stocks” during the football draft season. Draft season is football season, so keep your fantasy league together for an exciting PLAY THE DRAFT® experience.
HOW TO PLAY
PLAY THE DRAFT® is an intuitive, easy to play fantasy game experience. Gameplay is simple enough to attract and entertain the full spectrum of sports fans from super avid to casually social. All users begin play with $12,000,000 of fantasy salary cap dollars in a fund. Users can buy, sell or watch draft stocks looking for undervalued athletes relative to where you THINK they will be selected in the draft. There is no limit on the number of trades, and the highest fund value for each competition at the conclusion of the third round of the draft wins. Simple. Fun. Interactive. Don’t just watch the draft this year, PLAY THE DRAFT®!
The fantasy draft stocks of athletes competing for selection in the draft are assigned a value based on a proprietary pricing engine that calculates the consensus predictions of actual draft order, represented by the “FRX Index” (e.g. a 3.4 FRX Index means an athlete is trending towards the third overall selection) and the “Price” represents the estimated rookie salary cap figure assigned to that particular selection. Pricing is dynamic and changes daily as new information on athletes and team needs becomes available, so stay informed by reviewing articles and analysis from content partners.
Once registered, users may enter a hosted Contest or create a private league to play with up to 15 players. New funds and new leagues can be created at any time during draft season…even up to just prior to the start of the draft.
Users may create or join a league of other users to compete against. Private leagues are collections of people -- friends, colleagues, co-workers, whomever -- who have agreed to have their own private contest. When creating a league, users will be asked to enter a league name which can be used by other users, along with a provided access code, to join the league at any time. No prizes are awarded by the Administrator for private league play, but a private league heading is provided for league managers to communicate to participants what the league is playing for (e.g. Bragging Rights).
More than one Contest hosted by the Administrator will run during the 2014 draft season. The first and longest open Contest –The Full Season Mel Kiper Challenge - begins the weekend of the NFL Combine in February and ends with the final selection of the third round of the NFL Draft on May 9, 2014. Users may register to play at any time during the Contest Period. Additional contests will run for different durations during draft season with a public league competition planned for “Draft Month” and “Draft Week” as momentum builds leading up to the prime time televised event on May 8-9, 2014.
The Contest is open to individuals fourteen (14) years of age or older as of February 1, 2014.
