Private Group Contest- The 50 players will compete in 6 NFL Showdown Set contests (Thursday and Monday for 3 weeks). Each contest will be paired with a leaderboard that awards players points based on the finishing position of each player in the 50 person private group. The leaderboard will be manually sent to each player, so each player knows where they stand within the Promotion. This Promotion will not be elimination based. For clarity, all players will be permitted to play in each contest in each subsequent contest of the Promotion. Players will be auto-entered into each contest (after the first contest). If a player fails to submit a lineup before the Set contest lock time, that player shall receive zero (0) points for that contest.
The leaderboard point totals will be based on the following point scale corresponding to the place a user finishes in each contest:
