1. CHOOSE A CONTEST
Enter the game lobby and punch your ticket to the contest(s) of your choice! Choose from a variety of contest that include guaranteed contests (contests that will run regardless of whether they fill), multiple-entry (option to include more than one lineup) and more!
2. SELECT YOUR TIEBREAKER
Pick a tiebreaker to be used in the event that you are tied for an elimination spot at some point, and statistical tiebreakers cannot resolve the issue (see our FAQs for more on this). Tiebreakers are up to two decimal places and cannot be duplicated in a particular contest.
3. SET A LINEUP
Choose a lineup of players as you would in your fantasy league. You can only use a player one time. Load up early in an effort to score high and survive, or lay low and save players for favorable matchups later in the season? Choose wisely.
4. SCORE HIGH, SURVIVE
Fantasy Sports Knockout isn't about the highest score - it's about survival. Just score enough points not to be part of the week's elimination group and move on. One bad week and your season could be over.
5. SCORE LOW, GO HOME
If you do finish in the elimination group, you are eliminated from the contest. Each week the lowest score (or group of scores) is removed until there's just one entry remaining: the Knockout champion!
6. KEEP TRYING!
There's always next week! The beauty of our unique game is that a new contest can start every week. If you get knocked out early, you can find one that will begin the following week. Contests can be as short as two weeks.
