Confidence Pool Rules

  1. Each player picks every NFL game for the week, placing a "weight" from 1 to the number of games that week based on how confident they are that the team they picked will win (e.g. for a 16 game week, the weight range is 1 through 16). The more points assigned to a pick, the more confident they are that team will win. For each correct pick, they receive the number of points they assigned to that pick. Games are picked "straight-up", the line is not used (the line will be displayed for your convenience to assist in weighting your picks).
  2. Each week you select one tie-breaker game by guessing the total points scored in the game. This is used to break ties during the week for any weekly prizes. A running total is also kept of your tie-breakers. A prize can be established for the player with the lowest aggregate tie-breaker differential at the end of the season.
  3. You must have your picks in by the deadline established by the league manager. After you submit your picks, you can edit them provided 1) the deadline has not past, 2) the grace period as set up by the league manager has not elapsed, 3) a game has not started that you already picked.
  4. If your league is configured to have a "bye" week, your worst regular season week will be subtracted from your total points. See our bye week article for more details.
  5. If you do not get your picks submitted before the Thursday (or Wednesday) game, you can still submit picks provided the league deadline is sometime after the game. However, your highest weighting drops by 1 (e.g. if there are 16 games in the week, and you miss the Thursday game, your weight options are 1 through 15 for the Sunday games).
