Swim With the Sharks Contest Rules

The Swim with the Sharks contest is FREE for you to join.  For 17 weeks you’ll need to pick the top performers without picking a player from the same team twice in one week.

The Rules

You are required to choose 8 players, 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE and 1 K, all from different teams.  Your lineup must be set each week, it does not carry over week to week.  The player who scores the most fantasy points over 17 weeks (with two lowest weekly scores dropped) will be the winner.

Rosters must be finalized one hour before kickoff of the first game of the week. Pay attention to the early games if there are any that week. You will be locked out of the contest for that week if you don’t submit a roster on time.

Prizes

All apparel comes in sizes M – 4XL only and we ship to the US and Canada ONLY.  If you live outside of the US or Canada, you are still eligible for the free memberships, just not the apparel.

The following scoring system will be used to calculate player’s scores:

Scoring System

3 pts – TD 6 pts – TD
