You can compete in the Global, State and Private Competitions which each last for 16 weeks and each have the unique, FFE three-stage format. 

FFE offers the Global and State Competitions with cash prizes in the states of AK, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, IL, KS, KY, ME, MA, MD, MI, MN, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, WV, WI, WY and International (The United States of America, United Kingdom, Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain and Turkey). 

Private Competitions are available in all states (see below). 

FFE also offers Mock Drafting in all states. This is a stand-alone feature to get to know how FFE competitive drafting works and have some fun experimenting with different draft strategies before you enter the main Global, State and Private competitions. 

 

Global Competition

This is the main FFE competition.

Buy a team and enter the FFE Global Competition and compete over 16 weeks to become the Global FFE Fantasy Football champion and win the $25,000 top prize!

The Global Competition is available in AK, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, IL, KS, KY, ME, MA, MD, MI, MN, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, WV, WI, WY and International.

Due to restrictive state laws, the Global Competition is not available in AL, AZ, AR, DE, HI, ID, IN, IA, LA, MS, MO, MT, NV, NY, PA, TN, VT, VA, WA.

The Global Competition truly is global. Entries are accepted from all over the world. For the purposes of these rules, foreign countries operate in the same way as US states. 

FFE is available in all major countries. International players will see their ‘Country’ appear as the description where a US based player would see ‘State’. Apart from this difference, FFE operates the same way for International players as it does for US based players.

 

State (and Country) Competitions

The team you bought to enter the Global Competition is automatically entered into your local State (or Country) Competition which also runs for 16 weeks and uses FFE’s unique three-stage format. You can compete to be your State Champion and win your state cash prize! 

Available in AK, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, IL, KS, KY, ME, MA, MD, MI, MN, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, WV, WI, WY and International.

Due to restrictive state laws, the State Competitions do not have cash prizes in the states of AL, AZ, AR, DE, HI, ID, IN, IA, LA, MS, MO, MT, NV, NY, PA, TN, VT, VA, WA.  However, if you purchase a team to join a Private Competition in these states, that team will be entered into a ‘fun’ state competition that does not have any cash prizes.

Depending on the number of teams competing in a State or Country Competition, the rules for how many teams progress from Stage 1 to Stage 2 and from Stage 2 to Stage 3 will automatically vary to ensure you always have an exciting, three-stage competition!

 

Private Competitions (available in all states and countries)

FFE also hosts Private Competitions. This feature allows you to convert your regular fantasy football league into FFE’s unique three-stage competition format. 

It is easy for you to create your own Private Competition or to accept an invitation to join someone else’s private competition. 

See ‘My Account’ for a form that you can use to invite your friends to join your Private Competition plus a page that shows who has actually joined your Private Competition.

Please note that FFE does not offer or administer prizes for any Private Competitions that it hosts.

As an added incentive to get your friends to join your Private Competition, the team they buy to join your competition will also be entered for free into the FFE Global and State competitions (if they reside in an eligible state – see above for list). This means they will have three chances to win with each team they own! You will have no trouble attracting your friends to your Private Competition!

If FFE does not offer the Global Competition in your state, you can still create or join a Private Competition. In this case, teams can be purchased at a reduced rate since they are ineligible to win any of the FFE prizes. These teams will also be automatically entered in a ‘fun’ State Competition that does not have any cash prizes. This will still help attract your friends to join your Private Competition.

Because of FFE’s unique format, Private Competitions can accept any number of players. Depending on the number of teams competing, the rules for how many teams progress from Stage 1 to Stage 2 and from Stage 2 to Stage 3 will automatically vary to ensure you always have an exciting, three-stage competition!

 

Mock Drafting

FFE offers Mock Drafting in all states and countries. This is a stand-alone feature for you to get to know how FFE competitive drafting works and to have some fun experimenting with different draft strategies before you enter the main Global, State or Private competitions. 

Mock drafting is available until the end of August.  Although it uses the same team purchase, naming and drafting methodology as the main FFE competitions, it is a separate, stand-alone feature that is not connected in any way to the Global, State or Private competitions. 

Mock Drafted teams cannot be used in any other FFE competition.

Mock Drafted team rosters are confirmed back to the player by email when the draft is complete but are not stored in the FFE system.

 

Unique Three-Stage Format

The FFE Global, State and Private Competitions all last 16 weeks and all have FFE’s unique (and patented) three-stage format.

Stage 1 (League Play):

Your team competitively drafts against 11 computer opponents. These wily ‘AI’ opponents mean all players face standardized opponents to draft against which provides a level playing field and prevents any collusion. 

Your team then competes for 7 weeks in league play against those 11 computer opponents. If your team achieves 4 or more wins or is in the top 50% of human teams, it will progress to Stage 2.

Stage 2 (Elimination Round):

All the human teams with 4 or more wins from Stage 1 (or in the top 50% of humans) compete for three weeks in a points-based system. The average weekly fantasy points from Stage 1 are combined with the fantasy points scored in weeks 8, 9 and 10 and the top 64 teams proceed through to stage 3.

Stage 3 (Tournament):

The top 64 teams now compete in a head-to-head ‘March Madness’ style tournament. Win and you advance, lose and you’re out! The last team standing is the FFE Global Champion and wins the $25,000 grand prize!  

FFE is the only competitive drafting fantasy football competition that allows any number of players to participate. Depending on the number of teams participating in a State/Country or Private Competition, the rules for how many teams progress from Stage 1 to Stage 2 and from Stage 2 to Stage 3 will automatically vary to ensure an exciting competition!

 

Purchase Teams

Following registration, you can purchase teams. Price discounts are offered for early purchase, though you do not need to start or complete drafting of your teams until much later. 

Early purchase of teams is helpful so you have plenty of time to search for and join other people’s Private Competitions or create your own Private Competition and invite your friends to join it.

You might want to purchase multiple teams in order to adopt different drafting strategies.

There is no maximum limit to the number of teams you may purchase apart from the States of NY, MA, MS and CO where there is a 150 team maximum.

Teams can be purchased through NFL week 4, provided they are drafted before Wednesday, midnight EST. Obviously, you get to have more information by delaying purchase and drafting in this way but you also have fewer chances to get the 4 wins needed to advance from Stage 1 to Stage 2 of the competitions.  Since 4 wins are required to advance, and Stage 1 lasts 7 weeks, all purchases and drafting must be completed before NFL week 4 begins.

Once you have purchased a team, you can enter it into competitions.

 

Entering into Competitions

After purchasing a team, you will select which competitions you want to enter it into. You will be asked to name your team which will make that team appear in the various leaderboards of the competitions that the team is competing in. You can view these leaderboards ahead of the start of the NFL season to confirm you are entered in all the competitions you want to be in. 

Once you have named your team and decided which competitions to join, that team is available to be drafted.

 

Drafting Overview

In order to draft your team, you must first select the draft position of your team from positions 1 - 12. Following the selection of your draft position, you can draft at your own speed. Because you are drafting against ‘AI’ opponents, you don’t have to wait for other people to draft. You can draft slow or fast. You can also ‘pause’ drafting at any time and come back to it later. This is great if you want to do some extra research or need to take care of something else. 

Each team has its own separate league and each league consists of 12 teams; 1 human team (your team) and 11 computer simulated teams (Computer Teams 1 - 11).  During the draft, the computer simulated teams' players are selected instantaneously at their respective draft positions, using FFE's unique algorithm.

FFE employs the most common draft format among fantasy football leagues: the "snake" or "serpentine" draft. In other words, in the first round of drafting, the teams draft in ascending order from draft position 1 to draft position 12. In the second round, the teams draft in descending order from draft position 12 down to draft position 1. The thirds round is back to ascending order and the fourth round is in descending order etc. The rounds alternate in this way, for a total of 20 rounds, until the draft is complete.

You have the option to manually draft all or part of your team or you can select Auto-draft at any time to complete the drafting of your team. Auto-draft will occur immediately. Selecting the Auto-draft option CANNOT be undone. There will be a warning pop-up message to warn you about this. 

You may purchase a team and draft it at any time, provided you have finished drafting 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the National Football League's (NFL) week that you first wish to compete in. Under any circumstances, all drafting must be completed 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the first NFL week 4 game. Any team not fully drafted by this time will be force-drafted by the system.

Normally, players wish to complete drafting prior to NFL week 1. However, you do have the option to delay team purchase and/or drafting up until NFL week 3, provided that you complete the draft of all teams prior to the beginning of NFL week 4. Obviously, if you delay drafting until after the NFL season begins, you cannot achieve any wins in any weeks of play before you are drafted. You get to have more information by delaying drafting in this way but you have fewer chances to get the 4 wins needed to advance from Stage 1 to Stage 2 of the competitions.  Since 4 wins are required to advance, and Stage 1 lasts 7 weeks, all drafting must be completed before NFL week 4.

Due to the fact that FFE does NOT incorporate free agency or trades, the draft provides a generous 20 player team roster.  Your draft strategy needs to protect against bye weeks and player injuries. The roster requirements for a team are:

Quarterbacks - 3

Running Backs - 4

Wide Receivers - 4

Tight Ends - 2

Kickers - 2

Defenses/ Special teams - 2

FFE also allows teams to select three 3 additional players of any position to round out their roster. 

 

Setting Weekly Lineups Overview

A team's starting lineup consists of 10 selections and must consist of

Quarterback - 1

Running Back - 2

Wide Receiver - 2

Tight End- 1

Kicker - 1

Defense - 1

Flex Player – 2

A team's default lineup is based on the position each player is drafted.  For example, the first Quarterback selected is installed as the starting Quarterback with any remaining Quarterbacks drafted destined for the bench. Likewise, the first two Running Backs are selected as the starters and the remaining two stay on the bench, and so on.  

You can modify the default lineup as you wish from players on the bench provided the required positions above are honored.

The Flex Players can be any player from any position you choose - from Quarterback to Defense.  If you choose to start three (3) Quarterbacks, you are allowed to do so.  

You can set your lineup manually or by using Auto-lineup. The Auto-lineup will select your players based on a combination of past weeks performances and player ranking. Auto-lineup can be enabled or disabled throughout the season. 

The team MUST fulfill the starting lineup requirements or the team will be deemed an illegal lineup and ineligible to compete.  A pop-up message will notify you if you have not successfully set your lineup.

 

Stage 1 - League Play

Stage 1 of the FFE competition consists of league format play.  Your team(s) will compete in individual leagues against 11 computer teams, similar to traditional fantasy football leagues.  The duration of this stage is 7 weeks, where every week from weeks 1 to 7, your team will compete head-to-head with a different computer team. 

Each team will compile a win/loss record in Stage One based on the results of its league games. The compilation of win/loss record in association with total points scored and a predefined tiebreaking system (see Tiebreaker section) will factor into whether a team will advance to Stage Two. (Please note only human players advance.)  Any team that compiles a record of 4 - 3 or better during the first 7 weeks of Stage 1 will automatically move on to Stage 2.  A team's win/loss record can be viewed on the Leaderboard page.  However, at least 50% of teams must move on to Stage Two. As a result, some teams with a win/loss record of less than 4-3 MIGHT move on to Stage 2 to satisfy the 50% minimum quota. 

Each week, you can review the overall standings on the "Leaderboard" tab to see how your teams rank compared to other teams and how close they are to the Stage Two "cut-off."   

Stage 2 - Elimination Round

Stage 2 of the FFE competition is a three-week battle in which each team strives for the highest cumulative score possible. Only the top sixty-four teams will advance to Stage 3. A lengthy tiebreaker system will be utilized in order to narrow the advancing field down to sixty-four (see Tiebreaker section). The 64 teams that advance to Stage 3 will do so based on their average weekly score from Stage 1 plus their scores from week 8, week 9, and week 10. The applicable tiebreaker system will apply if necessary.

Stage 3 - Tournament Play

Stage 3 is the final stage of the FFE competition, which will ultimately crown the FFE Champion. The tournament consists of six rounds and will last for 6 weeks as a single elimination tournament. Teams compete head-to-head games. If you team win, you advance. If you lose, you are eliminated!  

The sixty-four teams that have advanced to Stage 3 will be seeded from #1 (the top seed) to #64 (the bottom seed) then matched up against one another tournament style:  1 vs. 64, 2 vs. 63, 3 vs. 62,?, 30 vs. 35, 31 vs. 34, 32 vs. 33. 

The final team standing is crowned the Fantasy Football Evolution Champion. Its owner can stake claim to the title of Best Fantasy Football Player in the World.

Drafting

Build a team that will dominate the field

Drafting Your Team

Welcome to Fantasy Football Evolution's (FFE) draft tutorial!  This guide will assist you in drafting your FFE team(s), but will by no means provide you with a winning team.  That responsibility falls entirely upon you and your drafting skills.  This will, however, help you with strategies that you'll want to keep in mind as you draft your teams(s).

Before you begin the draft, please note that there is NO time limit for making selections provided your draft is completed 30 minutes prior to the start of the first NFL game that you want to compete in, therefore, you have ample time to evaluate players and research each pick. The computer teams will make their selections instantaneously, while you will have the opportunity to strategize yours.

First step: select your draft position. You may select any spot between #1 and #12.  Note that this is a serpentine or "snake" style draft.  If you select #1 as your draft position, your next draft selections will be #24 (last pick in the second round), #25 (the first pick in the third round) and then #48 (the last pick in the fourth round), etc., for twenty rounds.  

Here's why: as you may or may not already know, each human player has his or her own league, consisting of him or her and eleven computer teams, which make a twelve team league.  The computer teams are designed to select from the top handful of players left on the ranking board within its position of need.  Each computer team in your league (and in all the other leagues for that matter), is designed to analyze its team's needs and to alter randomly whom it selects off the ranking board that meets those needs.

Each player, human or computer, drafts 20 players for his/ its team. Players, human or computer, may NOT make trades or pick up players off the waiver wire during the season, so draft accordingly.

Each 20-player team must consist of at least 3 quarterbacks, 4 running backs, 4 wide receivers, 2 tight ends, 2 kickers, 2 defenses/special teams and 3 "free" picks at any position. Because NO trading between teams or pickups off of the waiver wire can occur during the season, all teams must draft to protect against bye weeks and injuries. 

Outside of your three free picks, FFE will regulate the players you pick for a specific position based on each player's bye week. For example, you need a minimum of two tight ends on your team, so if you select a tight end in the 5th round with a bye week in week 7 and select another tight end in the 13th round with a bye week on week 7, too, FFE will either not allow you to make the selection (if you have already used your three additional position picks), or force you to draft another tight end that does not have a bye week on week 7.  This ensures that you do not have an empty starting position when you play one of the computer teams in your league during the first 7 weeks, or Stage 1, of the competition.  Injuries, however, cannot be predicted or fully planned for therefore, they may cost you an empty starting position if luck turns against you.  Computer teams also face the same risk of having an empty slot due to injured players.  If you are locked from drafting a player, check that the player you're drafting doesn't have the same bye week as a player you've already drafted at the same position. Feel free to email us for additional assistance.

You have the option to manually draft all or part of your team or you can select Auto-draft at any time to complete the drafting of your team. Auto-draft will occur immediately. Selecting the Auto-draft option CANNOT be undone. There will be a warning pop-up message to warn you about this. 

You may purchase a team and draft it at any time, provided you have finished drafting 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the National Football League's (NFL) week that you first wish to compete in. Under any circumstances, all drafting must be completed 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the first NFL week 4 game. Any team not fully drafted by this time will be force-drafted by the system.

Normally, players wish to complete drafting prior to NFL week 1. However, you do have the option to delay team purchase and/or drafting up until NFL week 3, provided that you complete the draft of all teams prior to the beginning of NFL week 4. Obviously, if you delay drafting until after the NFL season begins, you cannot achieve any wins in any weeks of play before you are drafted. You get to have more information by delaying drafting in this way but you have fewer chances to get the 4 wins needed to advance from Stage 1 to Stage 2 of the competitions.  Since 4 wins are required to advance, and Stage 1 lasts 7 weeks, all drafting must be completed before NFL week 4.

As mentioned above, apart from the final deadline, the draft has no time limit for selections. Develop a draft strategy and continually revisit it throughout the draft and select the players that best fit it and that meet the team requirements of the FFE draft. Filling roster spots properly with players that do not have conflicting bye weeks is essential for FFE.  You are not up against the clock. Therefore, you determine how long the draft lasts. You may logoff from the site and when you log back in, you will be directed back to the draft to resume from the same spot from where you left it, which will always be your selection.  Take your time, do the research, seek advice from a friend or just take a break from the draft.  Your approach to the draft is entirely up to you as long as the draft is completed prior to the first NFL week that you wish to participate in. Just remember, Under any circumstances, all drafting must be completed 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the first NFL week 4 game. Any team not fully drafted by this time will be force-drafted by the system.

Happy drafting and good luck on your way to becoming the next Fantasy Football Evolution Champion!

Your Weekly Lineup

For newbies, here's what you need to know about lineups

A team's default lineup is based on the position each player is drafted.  For example, the first Quarterback selected is installed as the starting Quarterback with the remaining Quarterbacks drafted destined to the bench. Likewise, the first two Running Backs selected as the starters and the remaining two stay on the bench, and so on.  The 2 Flex Players will default to the first two selections above the starting requirements listed below.  For example, if you draft 4 Running Backs with the first 4 selections, the 3rd and 4th Running Back will default to be your Flex Players.  The Flex Player can be any player from any position you choose - from Quarterback to Defense.  If you choose to start 3 Quarterbacks, you are allowed to do so.  

You can modify the default lineup as you wish from players on the bench provided the required positions are honored. A team's starting lineup must consist of

  • Quarterback - 1
  • Running Back - 2
  • Wide Receiver - 2
  • Tight End- 1
  • Kicker - 1
  • Defense - 1
  • Flex Player - 2

You can set your lineup manually by yourself or by using Auto-lineup. The Auto-lineup will select your players based on a combination of past weeks performances and player ranking. Auto-lineup can be enabled throughout the season by clicking Auto-lineup on the "Team Managment" tab. 

The team MUST fulfill the starting lineup requirements or the team will be deemed an illegal lineup and ineligible to compete.  A pop-up message will notify you if you have not successfully set your lineup.

Leaderboards

Want to know who is winning? Look no further

Leaderboards

There are leaderboards for the World Competition, the State/Country Competitions and all of the Private Competitions. All competitions have the unique FFE three-stage format.

The leaderboards serve several purposes. 

Firstly, before the season starts, they allow you to see which competitions your teams are entered into. This is important if you want to join a friend’s Private Competition or invite a Friend to join your own Private Competition. This allows you to move your friendly league to be hosted by FFE so that you and your friends can enjoy the unique three stage format that only FFE offers.

Secondly, once competition has started, the Leaderboards allow you to see how your teams rank with other teams. Specifically, they allow you to see how close your teams are to the "cut-off" to proceed to the next stage. The "cut-off" is similar to the cut line used in a golf tournament. 

In Stage 1, if your team compiles a record of 4-3 or better, or it is in the top 50% of human teams, it will automatically advance to Stage 2. 

In Stage 2, the average fantasy points from Stage 1 will be added to the fantasy points scored in week 8, week 9 and week 10 and the 64 top-scoring teams will advance to Stage 3.

 

League Play

Bring pain to computer opponents on a virtual gridiron

How the League Works

Stage 1 of the FFE competition consists of league format play.  Your teams will compete in individual leagues against 11 computer teams, similar to traditional fantasy football leagues.  The duration of this stage is 7 weeks, where every week from weeks 1 to 7, your team will compete head-to-head with a different computer team.  Your team's starting lineup of players will go up against the computer team's starting lineup of players to determine which team will win that specific matchup. A team's points are based on its players' statistical performances in their NFL games and calculated based off a predetermined scoring system used by FFE (see Scoring for a complete detail of how FFE quantifies player and team statistics). For example, a QB, say Eli Manning, passes for 250 yards, 2 touchdowns (TD) and one interception.  Under our scoring system, Manning's performance will earn 16 points based on a scoring system that awards 1 point for every 25 yards passing, 4 points for every TD under 20 yards and minus 2 points for every interception.

Each team will compile a win/loss record in Stage One based on the results of its league games. The compilation of win/loss record in association with total points scored and a predefined tiebreaking system (see Tiebreaker section) will factor into whether a team will advance to Stage 2. Please note only human players advance.  Any team that compiles a record of 4-3 or better during the first 7 weeks of Stage 1 will automatically move on to Stage 2.  A team's win/loss record can be viewed on the Leaderboards.  However, a designated percentage of teams must move on to Stage Two. As a result, some teams with a win/loss record of less than 4-3 MIGHT move on to Stage Two.  If at the end of Stage One, less than 50% of the overall teams have compiled a record of 4-3, FFE will advance the next best teams to satisfy the 50% minimum quota. For example, if there are 100,000 teams and only 44,000 entries finish Stage 1 at 4-3 or better, the top 6,000 3 win teams will move on to Stage 2 to satisfy the 50% quota.  

Each week, you can review the overall standings on the "Leaderboard" tab to see how your team rank compared to other teams and how close they are to the Stage 2 "cut-off."  The "cut-off" is similar to the cut line used in a golf tournament.

STAGE 1 TIE-BREAKER

1 - Total Points Scored for Stage 1.

A minimum of 50% of the total number of teams competing in Stage 1 will advance to Stage 2. Any team that compiles a record of 4 wins and 3 losses or better will advance automatically to Stage 2. If teams with a record of 4-3 or better fail to make up the 50% minimum requirement, then teams with the next best record will also advance. In other words, should teams with a record of 4-3 or better not make up at least 50% of the teams, then the best teams with a record of 3-0-4 will advance. If 3-0-4 teams fail to make up the 50% minimum then the best teams with a record of 3-1-3 will also advance. After 3-1-3 teams are exhausted, the best 3-2-2 teams will advance followed by the best 3-3-1 teams, etc.  Within each win step, the best teams will be determined based on the total amount of team points they scored in Stage 1. If a tie exists between two or more teams with identical records that the tiebreaker does not resolve, then they both advance to Stage 2.

Stage 2 of the FFE competition is a three-week battle in which each team strives for the highest cumulative fantasy points score possible.  The stage is strategically structured to reduce the remaining number of entries down to the top 64 teams that will advance to Stage 3. A lengthy tiebreaker system will be utilized in order to narrow the advancing field down to 64 (see Tiebreaker section). The 64 teams that advance to Stage 3 will do so based on the average weekly score from Stage 1 plus the weekly scores from week 8, week 9 and week 10, in conjunction with the applicable tiebreaker system, if necessary.

Stage 2 Tie-Breakers:

  1. Stage 1 Win/Loss Record
  2. Total Points Scored During Stage 1.
  3. Average Margin of Victory (Includes Losses) during Stage 1.
  4. Highest Maximum % of Stage 2 Points Scored.  Maximum % is the most amount of points a team could have scored if they selected the 10 best point totals for all their available slots / the actual points they scored.
  5. Highest Maximum % of Stage 1 Points Scored.  Maximum % is the most amount of points a team could have scored if they selected the 10 best point totals for all their available slots / the actual points they scored.
  6. Total Average Yardage By Starters (Kickers and Defenses do not count).
  7. Total Average Touchdowns By Starters (Kickers and Defenses do not count).

FAQ

Just in case you get stuck

Can I trade a player?

No, due to the fact that the first 8 weeks of the competition pits the human owned entry against computer teams within the individual leagues, trades are not allowed and that is the reason rosters are larger than most standard fantasy leagues.

Can I pick up a player off waivers?

No, due to the fact that the first 8 weeks of the competition pits the human owned entry against computer teams within the individual leagues, free agent pickups are not allowed and that is the reason rosters are larger than most standard fantasy leagues.

Why can't I view the site?

If you are having issues viewing our site, please check to ensure your internet browser is up to date. Other things you can try, use another browser or clear all cookies and cache then reboot your computer. If problems persist, send an email to the techincal support email.

Can I use the team I drafted in my other league?

No.  Each league's draft is different and therefore cannot be transferred over.  This is done to put all competitors on an equal footing.

How do I contact support if I run into an issue or just have a general question?

For billing problems contact billing.support@FFEffe.com

For technical problems contact tech.support@FFEffe.com

Can I get a refund once I pay?

Unfortunately not, there are multiple protective steps to make sure that payment for your purchase is what you intended to purchase. Once the final "Pay" button is clicked all sales are final.

What happens if there are multiple teams competing in Stage 3 with similar rosters?

This scenario is a possibility; however, the probability that teams with very similar rosters is highly unlikely.  The FFE competition has installed safeguards into its patent pending system, which includes multiple computer drafting algorithms, a fractionalized scoring system and two flex positions just to name a few.   Of course, there is always the human element to help differentiate teams as well.

What happens if one (1) or more of my teams does well or does bad? Does this affect my other teams?

When an individual purchases more than one entry, each of the individual's entries are independent of each other and are actually competing against each other to move on to the next stage.

What happens if I win?

In order to claim your prize, you must supply information that includes the following; full name, telephone number and complete postal address. The IRS also requires any prize winner $600 or greater to provide a valid social security number. At no point will this personal information be sold or distributed to third parties.

Scores and stats are updated immediately as they are received from our statistics provider.  Some events beyond our control can make this time longer. Thus, we are not responsible for the timeliness and accuracy of the statistics.

If an error occurs and is not corrected by our provider, we will correct the stat, but only if it is overwhelmingly obvious that the stat is in error. If there is any doubt to the validity of the stat, we will maintain the statistic given by its provider.

All stats for a given NFL week are deemed final at noon on Friday of the next week. Even if the NFL changes a stat several weeks later, it will not be changed by us.

Next Gen is not affiliated nor endorsed by the National Football League, its franchisees or subsidiaries, therefore, we are not responsible for any inaccuracies, representations, statements, graphics or content of materials that are uploaded onto its servers and website from other vendors, including but not limited to the National Football League, XML Team, the Associated Press or users.
