Welcome to the FanDuel Partners Basketball Championship (FPBC) hosted by FanDuel.com. Here are the detailed rules for the tournament.
The FanDuel Partners Basketball Championship (FPBC) is a daily fantasy sports competition to decide which website is the top fantasy basketball projector in the industry. The FPBC is free to enter for 10 selected FanDuel affiliated marketing (“Partners”). The FPBC will span five weeks, with two single-entry contests per week -- held on Wednesday and Friday of each week (“Contest Period”).
Exact dates: Wednesday, February 24 -- Friday, February 26 -- Wednesday, March 2 -- Friday, March 4 -- Wednesday, March 9 -- Friday, March 11 -- Wednesday, March 16 -- Friday, March 18 -- Wednesday, March 23 -- Friday, March 25.
Teams and Scoring
All Partners will be given custom FanDuel user names that may only be used in the FPBC. These user accounts are not eligible to participate in any other FanDuel contests outside of the FPBC.
Fantasy points and rosters for all FPBC contests will use standard FanDuel scoring rules for NBA contests, as explained here: www.fanduel.com/rules. Winners will be determined based on the highest aggregate score from all contests during the Contest Period. However, the two lowest contest scores for each Partner during the Contest Period will be omitted from the aggregate score calculation.
Tiebreaker: In the event of a tie, the greater of the two omitted scores will be added back to the totals for the tied Partners to determine the winner. If Partners are still tied, the remaining dropped score will be added to the totals. If Partners are still tied, a one-contest playoff will be held to decide the winner. If a tie remains, the first lineup entered into the one-contest playoff will be declared the winner.
First prize in the FPBC will be $500 cash as well as a trip for two to the FanDuel Playboy Championship in June, held at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, California. Second prize in the FPBC will be $300. Third prize in the FPBC will be $200.
