- Fantasy Over/Under Challenge Descriptions and EntryDescription and Entry Period
At the start of the Promotion Period, the Promotion’s weekly contest invites participants to compete by submitting 10 predictions regarding whether NFL players will score fantasy points that are higher or lower than a predetermined fantasy point total for each player. FantasyPros will set the fantasy point totals based off of their consensus projections for each player as of the time the contest begins each Wednesday during weeks 1 to 17 of the NFL season. The fantasy point totals will be based off of Yahoo! Sports’ default fantasy scoring (i.e. Half PPR). All predictions will be solicited prior to the official start of each player’s Game (“Pre-Game Predictions”). More specifically, each weekly contest will lock the predictions at 1pm ET on Sunday from weeks 1 to 17 of the NFL season. Each contest will conclude at the end of the Sunday Night Football game for the applicable week. There will be 17 such contests throughout the NFL season corresponding with the NFL regular season. Fantasy Over/Under Challenge contestants will accrue points for correctly predicting whether each player’s fantasy point total is higher or lower than the predetermined amounts. Predictions will be submitted and recorded in accordance with these Official Rules, including the Deadline. Registered Promotion participants must submit ten (10) predictions prior to the 1pm ET Sunday Deadline to receive an entry into the weekly contest. Limit one (1) entry per person/per week. FantasyPros will generate 17 weekly leaderboards corresponding to each week’s contest and a season-to-date leaderboard that combines scores across the various weeks, as described in Section 4 (Scoring) below.Prediction Deadline
Entrants may change their Fantasy Over/Under Challenge predictions up until 1pm ET each Sunday from weeks 1 to 17 of the NFL season, at which point the submitted predictions will be “locked” for scoring purposes (collectively, the “Deadline”). To be scored for Fantasy Over/Under Challenge purposes, predictions must be submitted and recorded by FantasyPros prior to the applicable Deadline. No points will be awarded for Predictions submitted or recorded after the applicable Deadline.
FantasyPros will score Fantasy Over/Under Challenge predictions and assign points known as “Wins” and “Losses” in accordance with the rules below. The decisions of FantasyPros are final and binding with respect to the Fantasy Over/Under Challenge scoring and in all other Fantasy Over/Under Challenge matters.
- Predictions concerning a player’s fantasy point total will be scored upon the conclusion of their Game and be available for participants to view no later than each Tuesday of the following week. FantasyPros will use Yahoo! Sports’ default fantasy scoring (i.e. Half PPR) when calculating the fantasy point totals for each player
- Participants will earn a “Win” for each prediction where they correctly identified that a player would score Over or Under a pre-set fantasy point total. Conversely, participants will receive a “Loss” for each prediction where they incorrectly identified that a player would score Over or Under a pre-set fantasy point total. If a player’s fantasy point total lands exactly on the Over/Under amount, the user’s prediction will be recorded as neither a Win nor Loss. The Wins and Losses across the 10 predictions will be tallied each week to create a Win/Loss record for each participant.
- In the event that a player is declared inactive prior to the start of a game, all predictions for that player will be zeroed out and will not be included for scoring purposes for that week. If the player is active but does not play or he is active but gets injured during the game, the predictions for the player will be scored.
- In the event that, for any reason, a Game is suspended for the applicable week (e.g., for severe weather), FantasyPros will score the Predictions submitted and recorded up until the time of suspension. For any Game which is suspended and resumes play on a subsequent date, the resumed portion of the Game and any associated Predictions will be void and will not be scored for purposes of the Fantasy Over/Under Challenge.
- In the event that, after FantasyPros has scored and issued points for any Prediction and the applicable Game or event outcome is changed, corrected, or otherwise adjusted by the National Football League (e.g., following an instant replay review or following review initiated by a Team), points awarded within Fantasy Over/Under Challenge for the applicable Prediction will not be changed, corrected, or otherwise adjusted, even if such change, correction, or adjustment is anticipated by a Fantasy Over/Under Challenge participant.
- FantasyPros reserves the right, but assumes no obligation, to correct and update Fantasy Over/Under Challenge scores based on errors or irregularities in the tabulation, transmission, or publication of Game outcomes or Prediction scores.Prizing

Weekly Contest Leaderboard
During weeks 1 to 17 of the NFL season, there will be 10 Over or Under fantasy point questions posed. Each weekly leaderboard will be based on who answered the most questions correctly, with 10 “Wins” representing a high score. Each entrant will also be prompted to answer a tie-breaker question by submitting a prediction related to total fantasy points for the week. Any ties in the leaderboard will be broken based on the prediction to the tie-breaker question that is closest to the actual fantasy points value for the players in question. In other words, for any ties, the entrant that is closest to the actual outcome of the tiebreaker question will appear the highest in the standings.
The Prize Winners for each weekly Fantasy Over/Under Challenge will be announced no later than every Tuesday during the NFL season. Entrants will be contacted via email when accuracy results are ready to be viewed. Information on whether a prize(s) has been won and how to receive the prize(s) will be provided in the email.
As described in the Prizes section above FantasyPros will offer $10 gift cards to the top 20 participants based on high scores each week. Furthermore, BetMGM Sportsbook will provide free $10 bet credits to the top 10 highest scoring participants in eligible jurisdictions each week. These credits are only available to users 21 years or older in the following eligible states where sports betting is legal: New Jersey, Colorado, Indiana, and West Virginia.
Season-to-Date Contest Leaderboard
FantasyPros will tally each entrant’s weekly Win/Loss scores across all 17 weekly contests to determine a Season-to-Date Leaderboard. The 2 lowest weekly scores for each entrant will be dropped as part of the calculation. If an entrant missed 2 weeks, for example, these would count as the 2 lowest scores that are dropped. The order of standings will be determined by the entrants that have accrued the most wins throughout the NFL season. If there is a tie atop the leaderboard, FantasyPros will break the tie in the following manner:
A) For the weeks that contributed to a participant’s score, FantasyPros will sum up the absolute value of how far away their predictions were from the actual outcomes across the tiebreaker questions. Whoever has a smaller sum of errors will appear higher in the leaderboard.
B) If the above doesn’t break the tie, FantasyPros will use the tiebreaker question from week 17 (or the most recent tie-breaker the user answered) to determine the order of standings.
C) If there is still a tie after #1 and #2, FantasyPros will use the tiebreaker question from week 16 (or the most recent tie-breaker the user answered) to determine the order of standings. FantasyPros will continue going down the weeks (e.g. week 15, week 14, etc) until the tie is broken.
If the NFL fails to complete a full season, the winner of the Season-to-Date competition will be the entrant that is in first place at the time the season ends (regardless of how many weeks are completed). Any tie atop the leaderboard will be broken as listed above.
The Prize Winner for the season-to-date Fantasy Over/Under Challenge will be announced no later than Tuesday, January 5th at the conclusion of week 17’s contest. Entrants will be contacted via email when accuracy results are ready to be viewed. Information on whether a prize has been won and how to receive the prize will be provided in the email.
As described in the Prizes section, a grand prize will be awarded to the entrant that finishes in 1st place. BetMGM will provide a 3 day, 2-night stay at an MGM resort property in Las Vegas.
