Teams and Scoring

Standard FanDuel scoring rules for fantasy women’s basketball contests apply to all Free Plays and the Championship. You can find all scoring rules at https://www.fanduel.com/rules.

In the event of any ties between two or more participants, the superior finishing position will be determined from the highest scoring individual basketball player’s score on the FanDuel participant’s team. If the highest scoring individual basketball players on each team have the same score, the second highest scoring basketball player will determine the winner; if the second highest scoring basketball player does not determine a winner, the third highest scoring basketball player will determine the winner. This method will continue until a winner has been determined. If a winner cannot be determined using this method, then all players that are still tied will compete in a tiebreaking freeroll the following day to determine the final prize order.
