Overview

The $150 Draft Champions will consist of multiple leagues each comprised of 15 teams.

The NFBC regular season will extend from the first game of the MLB regular season through the final game of the regular season (including one or more season-ending MLB tie-breaker games if needed). Owners can win league prizes and a separate $30,000 Grand Prize in this contest (see Prize Table below for all prizes).

Teams will compete for accumulative stats in five offensive and five pitching categories, with each category weighted equally.

Categories include:

    Hitters
  • Batting Average
  • Home Runs
  • RBIs
  • Stolen Bases
  • Runs
    Pitchers
  • Wins
  • Saves
  • Earned Run Average
  • Strikeouts
  • WHIP Ratio (Walks plus Hits divided by Innings Pitched)

The team at the end of the year with the most Rotisserie rank points based on cumulative statistics for the season in each league wins the league title. Prizes will be paid to the top finishers in the league.

Setting Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) Preferences

The NFBC will use Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) preferences for draft preferences in all $150 Draft Champions leagues. The Draft Preferences are listed as soon as you click on your team link. There you will see a list of 1 through 15 in order and an "Edit Preferences" link. Edit your list as often as you'd like and just save your preferences each time before the required deadline for this league.

Here's what KDS does: The KDS process allows owners to rank their order of preference for Draft Day, ranking their preferences 1 through 15 BEFORE the leagues are randomly selected. Some owners would rather draft in the middle, if they are selected early in their league; others like to stay near the top and others like to move down to the lower end. KDS allows that if you are fortunate enough. A sample KDS from an owner could look like this:

3
1
2
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15

If an owner wants the third pick and he is selected No. 1 overall in his league, he would choose 3 as his top option and he would then be moved to third in that league on Draft Day. NFBC officials will look at every owner's Draft Preferences after the leagues and orders are randomly selected, pick the highest available preference for each owner and then announce the draft orders for each league.

Random League/Draft Spot Selections

The NFBC will set each $150 Draft Champions league as they fill on a first-come, first-served basis. Once that league is filled for that date, the league will be closed or signups will continue for a second or third league for that date and time. We also will implement the Kentucky Derby System (KDS) process, as described in the section above, to allow owners more draft preference. The KDS process allows owners to rank their order of preference for Draft Day, ranking their preferences 1 through 15 BEFORE the leagues are selected. If an owner wants the third pick and he is selected No. 1 overall in his league, he would choose that option and he would then be moved to third in that league on Draft Day. NFBC officials will look at every owner's Draft Preferences after the leagues and orders are randomly selected and then announce the draft orders for each league. Once an owner has officially signed up for the contest, this feature is available at the game website under their team link. Click on the team link and you will see the Draft Order ranked 1 through 15 and the option to Edit Preferences next to them. If you decide not to rank your preferences, your preferred order will remain 1 through 15 . Owners can change their Draft Preferences right up until the announced deadline is set.

Option 1: SLOW Draft

Drafts will take place online at playnfbc.com from November through March. Participants can enter as many $150 Draft Champions leagues as they would like. Leagues form as they fill up and they start shortly after a league is full, unless they fill overnight. Then they will start at 8 am ET. Draft spots are announced via email and on the team pages shortly after the league fills.

Each league will be comprised of 15 teams, and each draft will consist of 50 rounds, with each team selecting a player from the AL or NL in each round in a serpentine fashion (team 1 through team 15 in odd-numbered rounds, team 15 through team 1 in even-numbered rounds) . This goes on for 50 rounds, with each team having a 2 or 4 hour time limit (depending what you choose) to make a pick. There are no in-season moves in the $150 Draft Champions format: What you pick on Draft Day is what you have to work with during the entire season.

Each team must start a weekly lineup of 23 players with required positions and maintain a reserve roster (which includes DL players) of 27 players. There is no position requirement necessary for your reserve roster and you can change your starting lineup at the start of each week. You also do not need to fill your 23 required starting positions with your first 23 picks; your No. 2 catcher could be selected with your 50th overall pick if you choose. Players will be selected from all 30 Major League Baseball rosters and any player from any MLB organization is eligible to be drafted. There are no free agent pickups during the season.

If an NFBC participant inadvertently leaves the draft with an illegal lineup (for instance, was without a middle infielder or second catcher), then the NFBC will drop the last pick made by that team (or more picks if needed) and add the last player at that position on the NFBC's final Cheat Sheet on Draft Day to make that lineup legal. All lineups must be legal before the season starts and the NFBC will correct all roster errors that may have been missed at the draft. All decisions by the NFBC commissioner involving final rosters are official.

Random League/Draft Spot Selections: The $150 Draft Champions Leagues go once they are filled. Once 15 teams are signed up, we will close that league, run the KDS for the participants shortly after the league fills, email the participants the draft order and begin the draft process that day. If a league fills after 10 PM ET that league will start at 8 AM ET the following day.

Time Limit for Draft: There will be either a 2 or 4 time limit (depending what you choose) for each owner to make his/her pick during each round of the $150 Draft Champions League draft. If a participant does not make a selection in the allotted time, the computer will select the top player from that owner's Player queue and if no player is in the queue then the top available player from the player's default list will be selected. If a participant times out once, their team will be put on Auto Draft. A participant may toggle the auto draft feature off at any time. If there is a computer failure, an error made with a selection by an owner or any other type of technical malfunction, the draft moderator can stop the draft at any time and correct the error and then resume the draft. The NFBC reserves the right to allow the draft moderator to roll-back the draft if a technical error occurred, but if the desired player had already been selected before the draft was stopped, that player is no longer available to be drafted. Although there is a time limit, we expect owners to make picks in a timely fashion, to set players in their queue before they are on the clock and to keep drafts moving.

Pick Timers Cut in Half: In order to increase draft efficiency, once round 31 begins, the pick timer is cut in half for the remainder of the draft.

Overnight Pause: Drafts are paused overnight from 2 AM ET - 8 AM ET.

Commissioner Decisions: All decisions made by the NFBC commissioner are final. Tough decisions sometimes must be made about eligibility rules, lineups, etc., and NFBC participants must accept the unbiased ruling of the NFBC commissioner.

Option 2: EXPRESS Draft

Drafts will take place online at playnfbc.com from November through March. Participants can enter as many $150 Draft Champions leagues as they would like. Leagues form as they fill up and they start at their scheduled draft time. Draft spots are announced via email and on the team pages shortly after the league fills.

Each league will be comprised of 15 teams, and each draft will consist of 50 rounds, with each team selecting a player from the AL or NL in each round in a serpentine fashion (team 1 through team 15 in odd-numbered rounds, team 15 through team 1 in even-numbered rounds) . This goes on for 50 rounds, with each team having either a 55 second time limit to make a pick. There are no in-season moves in the $150 Draft Champions format: What you pick on Draft Day is what you have to work with during the entire season.

Each team must start a weekly lineup of 23 players with required positions and maintain a reserve roster (which includes DL players) of 27 players. There is no position requirement necessary for your reserve roster and you can change your starting lineup at the start of each week. You also do not need to fill your 23 required starting positions with your first 23 picks; your No. 2 catcher could be selected with your 50th overall pick if you choose. Players will be selected from all 30 Major League Baseball rosters and any player from any MLB organization is eligible to be drafted. There are no free agent pickups during the season.

All lineups must be legal before the season starts and the NFBC will correct all roster errors that may have been missed at the draft. All decisions by the NFBC commissioner involving final rosters are official.

Random League/Draft Spot Selections: The $150 Draft Champions Leagues start at their scheduled draft time. Once 15 teams are signed up, we will close that league, run the KDS for the participants shortly after the league fills, email the participants the draft order and prepares for the draft process.

Time Limit for Draft: There will be a 55 second time limit for each owner to make his/her pick during each round of the $150 Draft Champions League draft. If a participant does not make a selection in the allotted time, the computer will select the top player from that owner's Player queue and if no player is in the queue then the top available player from the player's default list will be selected. If a participant times out twice in a row, their team will be put on Auto Draft. A participant may toggle the auto draft feature off at any time. If there is a computer failure, an error made with a selection by an owner or any other type of technical malfunction, the draft moderator can stop the draft at any time and correct the error and then resume the draft.

Commissioner Decisions: All decisions made by the NFBC commissioner are final. Tough decisions sometimes must be made about eligibility rules, lineups, etc., and NFBC participants must accept the unbiased ruling of the NFBC commissioner.

Roster Requirements

Maximum of 50 players at all times.

Starting Lineup Requirements

Starting lineups will consist of:

    * 2 Catchers

    * 1 First Baseman

    * 1 Second Baseman

    * 1 Shortstop

    * 1 Third Baseman

    * 5 Outfielders

    * 1 Corner Infielder

    * 1 Middle Infielder

    * 1 Utility Player

    * 9 Pitchers

There is a 1000 innings pitched minimum requirement for all $150 Draft Champions leagues, but no minimum requirement for the number of starting pitchers or relief pitchers on each roster. Should any team not reach the required limit of 1000 innings pitched by the end of the season, the rankings will be altered to show that team getting 1 point in both ERA and WHIP. No other teams will switch positions in the standings, but the team that didn't reach the minimum IP will automatically earn 1 point in ERA and WHIP.

Position Eligibility

The NFBC will use the following position eligibility rules in 2019:

a) Players who played at least 20 games at any position in 2018 will qualify at that position for the entire 2019 NFBC season. Players who play 10 games at a new position in 2019 will be eligible at that position after they have played there for the 10th time during the 2019 MLB regular season. Any player who missed all of the previous season to injury or retirement will qualify at the position he last was eligible for in the majors.

b) If a player did not appear in 20 games at any position, he qualifies at the one position he played most frequently the prior season in the majors. Designated Hitter is considered a position for these purposes (pinch-hitting is not). A player who only qualifies as a DH may only be assigned to the UT position. If a player's most games played at a position is less than 20 and tied among more than one position, the NFBC commissioner will assign eligibility at one position only.

c) Those players who only pinch-hit in the majors in 2018 will be position eligible according to their minor-league games played status in 2018. They would qualify at the position they played the most games in the minors.

d) Players who played all of 2018 in the minor leagues will be awarded position eligibility for the 2019 NFBC season based on the most games played at all levels in the minors. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. will determine that one eligible position before Draft Day and that will determine that player's status for 2019 once he is called up to the majors. Those players who only pinch-hit or DH in the minors will only be UT-eligible.

e) The NFBC commissioner will rule on player eligibility prior to the draft as he deems necessary. Those eligibility lists are final and will be available to all owners prior to Draft Day.

Lineup Submission

The weekly deadline for setting your NFBC starting lineup is on Mondays with the following exceptions:
1) Week 1, the deadline is before each game on Thursday, March 28th.
2) Week 16, (All Star break week), the deadline is before each players first game on Thursday, July 11, or Friday, July 12.

In the NFBC, you don't have to lock in your entire starting lineup on Mondays if you have players who don't play their first game of the week until Tuesday. You are allowed to lock in your starters on Monday 5 minutes before their scheduled games that day and also 5 minutes before their games on Tuesdays if that is their first game of the week.

Example 1: If you have East Coast teams starting at 7:05 pm ET on Monday, you have to lock them into your starting lineup by 7 pm ET.
Example 2: If you also have West Coast players who don't play until 10:05 pm ET, you then have until 10 pm ET to lock those starters in.

If you have two outfielders playing their first games on Tuesday and you have one OF spot open in your starting lineup, you have until Tuesday night to finalize who you want in your starting lineup.

On Fridays, the same flexible Set Lineup procedure is in place for hitters where you can lock in your starters 5 minutes before their scheduled starting time for that day. Those players lock 5 minutes before their SCHEDULED STARTING TIME and do not change based on weather or any other matters.

NFBC team owners are also allowed to switch out any hitter (or hitters) from their starting lineup and replace him with a hitter from their reserve roster on Fridays. The deadline for doing that is 5 minutes before the start of that player's game on Friday or 5 minutes before Saturday's start time if that player's team is off on Friday. Pitchers will not be allowed to be moved out of your starting lineup at any time during the season; what is set on Monday remains for the remainder of the week for all pitchers. If there is an MLB tie-breaker game or games at the start of a new week, NFBC owners are allowed to reset their starting lineups for that game or games.

NEW THIS YEAR: If a game is cancelled on Monday or Friday and once NFBC receives official notice, players for those teams (hitters only on Fridays) would lock 5 minutes before their first game on Tuesday or Saturday.

First Lineup Deadlines for Week 1: The MLB season starts on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 with two games in Japan, with all 30 teams playing on 3/28/19. All of those games plus the Friday-Sunday slate of games will comprise Week 1 in the NFBC. Week 1 will include games from Wednesday, March 20, 2019 to Sunday and owners can still change out their hitters on Friday. Lineups for every week after that run Monday-Sunday.

All lineups must be submitted on the league website.

Trades Between Managers

To minimize the possibility of collusion, there will be no trading allowed.

Scoring

$150 Draft Champions leagues will use a 5x5 Rotisserie scoring system. Cumulative totals will be used for the following categories:

  • Batting Average
  • Home Runs
  • RBIs
  • Stolen Bases
  • Runs
  • Wins
  • Saves
  • Earned Run Average
  • Strikeouts
  • WHIP Ratio (walks plus hits divided by innings pitched)

Teams are ranked by comparing their team totals to the other teams in their league. The team with the best total in each category receives 15 points and the team with the worst total receives 1 point. For Contests with Overall rankings, Overall points are calculated by ranking your team's statistics totals versus all other teams in the NFBC contest.

Free Agents

There are no free agent pickups in $150 Draft Champions Leagues. What you draft is what you have to manage for the entire season. All rosters remain intact from Draft Day through the end of the season.

Taxes

If the principal team owner's prize winnings are $600.00 or greater (or any other threshold subsequently established by the IRS), the NFBC must file a Form 1099 with the IRS at the end of this calendar year. We will request your social security number and signature on this form. The form contains the amount paid to you and you will receive a copy of the form for tax purposes. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. pays the principal team owner of each NFBC team that was submitted on the entry form and you are responsible for paying any taxes that result from your cash prize; please consult your income tax advisor for filing advice. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, SportsHub Games Network, Inc. reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes. After 12 months, any unclaimed prize will be forfeited.

Eligibility & Registration

The NFBC is open to individuals who are at least 18 years of age or older (19 years in Nebraska and Alabama, and 21 years in Massachusetts) and are a resident of the United States of America or Canada. Notwithstanding the foregoing, residents of Arizona, Delaware, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington State are not eligible to register or play in the NFBC. All registrations must be in the full legal name of the primary team owner, though owners will have the option to add a co-manager(s).

Official Rules

Registration for, and continued participation in, the NFBC constitutes your full and unconditional agreement to these official rules ("Official Rules") and to SportsHub Games Network, Inc. decisions relating thereto. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. decisions in regards to these Official Rules and all matters pertaining to the NFBC are final and binding.

Refunds

Once a participant submits valid payment, no money will be refunded unless the NFBC event for which such participant has registered has been canceled. A team spot is considered filled when the entire entry fee is paid. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. reserves the right to cancel any entries which are not part of a full league. In addition, SportsHub Games Network, Inc. retains the right to deny, at its sole discretion, eligibility of any individual to register for any NFBC game or event and/or participate in any NFBC game or event, even after the registration fee has been paid, but in such case, the entry fee will be refunded. Under no condition shall SportsHub Games Network, Inc. be held responsible for any loss or liability related to any expenses incurred by a denied entrant or any person affiliated with that denied entrant. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that any participant or co-manager is banned from the NFBC as the result of any violation of the Official Rules, then no refund will be given.

Cancellation

At its sole discretion, SportsHub Games Network, Inc. reserves the right to terminate any NFBC game, event or league at any time prior to the completion of the season due to any acts of God, natural disasters, terrorism, change in applicable law, interruption of the season (including strikes, lockouts and/or use of replacement players), or any other situation beyond the control of SportsHub Games Network, Inc.. In the event of any such termination by SportsHub Games Network, Inc., all entry fees will be refunded, with the exception of any live event fees (if such live event has already occurred).

At its sole discretion, SportsHub Games Network, Inc. reserves the right to terminate any NFBC game, event or league (including the NFBC Main Event) if there are an insufficient number of teams prior to the scheduled start of the league. In this unlikely event, SportsHub Games Network, Inc. will refund all entry fees within 48 hours of cancellation notice and/or provide a new application form with the newly stated prize figures. In this situation, all pre-registered applicants have the right to a full refund or to agree to play for the newly announced prize structure. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. is not responsible for any loss or liability incurred by any participant or co-managers due to cancellation of any NFBC game, event or league, including but not limited to travel or hotel expenses, time taken off from employment, etc.

Code of Conduct

All participants and co-managers are expected to behave in lawful, respectful and sportsman-like fashion at all live draft events, throughout the NFBC season, and during use of any NFBC website, including, but not limited to comments posted on any NFBC message board. Additionally the NFBC events, games and/or leagues may not be used for any form of gambling. Any conduct or message board post by a participant, co-manager or other person which is deemed by SportsHub Games Network, Inc., in its sole discretion, to be unlawful, or to have the effect of intimidating, harassing, offending or otherwise harming any other participant, co-manager, guest, or NFBC/SportsHub Games Network, Inc. representative, is strictly prohibited. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. reserves the right, in its sole discretion to ban any person from current and/or future participation in the NFBC and/or from use of the message boards if such person engages in any such prohibited conduct or is otherwise in violation of any of these Rules. In addition, any person engaging in such conduct forfeits any rights to a refund, as well as any potential rights to a prize award. SportsHub Games Network, Inc. shall not be responsible or held liable to any person for damage to property or personal injury or death arising from the acts or omissions of any third parties. Any participants or co-managers who collude, or attempt to collude, or who attempts to blackmail, bribe or otherwise influence any representative of SportsHub Games Network, Inc./NFBC, or who otherwise attempts to sabotage the league, in an effort to alter the results or outcome of any NFBC game will be disqualified and will be prohibited from winning any prize award. If a participant is banned from participation in a current NFBC game, then SportsHub Games Network, Inc. reserves the right, to take those actions which it sees fit, in its sole discretion with respect to such banned participant?s team. Any criminal behavior may be referred to the appropriate authorities.

Errors

The deadline for submitting any dispute or claim regarding the operation of any league draft is one hour after the conclusion of the draft itself; further, leaving any live draft event without submitting any dispute or claim regarding the draft constitutes your waiver of any right to challenge any aspect of the draft. You are strongly urged to double-check your lineups, trades, and free agent moves throughout the season, as SportsHub Games Network, Inc./NFBC will not be held liable for any errors in entering lineups, trades or free agent moves, and SportsHub Games Network, Inc./NFBC will not intervene or alter a transaction after lineups, trades or free agent moves are due.

Prize Splitting

Prize splitting amongst the principal registrant and co-managers is available, provided that the principal registrant has authorized payment to his co-managers in writing and in advance of the completion of the season. In order to authorize prize-splitting, the principal registrant must completely fill out and sign the authorization form designated by SportsHub Games Network, Inc. (including the name and address of the co-manager(s) and the applicable prize percentage to be paid to each co-manager(s)). Both the principal registrant and each co-manager designated on a prize-splitting form will be required to fill out a W-9. No prize money will be distributed until all necessary forms have been received by SportsHub Games Network, Inc.. Both the principal registrant and the co-manager(s) will receive IRS Form 1099 reflecting the prize money paid to each. If SportsHub Games Network, Inc. deems, in its sole discretion, that the appropriate documentation and/or authorization has not been received, or has not been received in a timely fashion, then SportsHub Games Network, Inc. will pay prize payments only to the principal registrant.

Communication Access
