Introduction
2013 CBSSports.com Football Player Challenge
Welcome to 2013 CBSSports.com Football Player Challenge (the "Challenge"). The Challenge is divided into fourteen (14) individual contests (each individually a "Contest" and collectively, the "Contests"). Each Contest consists of a four-week long competition/game (the "Contest Period") that will require participants, who will be divided into groups (each, a "league") that consist of twelve (12) users each, to field a lineup of eight (8) NFL players for each of the four (4) weeks of the Contest Period (each week, a "Contest Weekly Period"), from amongst a set list of players provided. Participants will be required to set a new lineup of eight (8) players by the Contest set lineup deadline for each Weekly Period and will not be able to use any player more than once during a Contest Period. The Challenge will run throughout the 2013 NFL Regular season; the Challenge begins on Thursday, September 5, 2013, and ends Sunday, December 29, 2013 (the "Challenge Period").

For purposes of these Official Rules, "Registered User" means a person who has successfully completed the registration form and has obtained a User Identification ("ID") and associated password ("Password") on one of the CBSI network of Websites which currently include the following: CBS.com, CBSSports.com, and NCAA.com.

If you are not a Registered User you may become a Registered User and obtain an ID and a Password by completing the CBSSports.com registration form by clicking on this link here. There is no fee or charge for you to become a Registered User.

*All CBSSports.com Fantasy Football contests are subject to the complete applicable Official Rules. Void where prohibited by law.

Employees of CBS Interactive Inc. and CBS Broadcasting Inc. (collectively the "Contest Entities") and each of their parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising, promotion and fulfillment agencies and members of the immediate family or household of each are not eligible to win. Immediate family member is defined as a parent, sibling or any person residing in the same household as an employee of the Contest Entities. Void where prohibited by law. Such excluded employees and/or family members may play, but WILL NOT be eligible to receive any prizes.

Challenge and League Joining Deadline
After you become a Registered User, you may sign up for the Challenge at anytime up to 11:59:59 AM ET on 12/08/2013. Each Contest will have various numbers of leagues; each league will consist of twelve (12) participants, or team "owners." The first day of the NFL season is set for Thursday 09/05/2013. Users signing up after 7:25pm ET on Thursdays will only be placed in groups with other users who also signed up after 7:25pm ET Thursday of that same week. This is so that all owners in the same league have the same advantage in terms of available players to select from, as the Thursday players lock and cannot be selected for the first Contest Weekly Period of the Contest after 5-minutes prior to their game's start time.

There will be twelve (12) teams per league. Once signed up, CBSSports.com will randomly place the users in a league with eleven (11) other players. Once assigned to a league, the user will not be able to change leagues. Any additional team purchased by a user may NOT be used in a league where that user already has a team. If the user has multiple teams, each team must be in a different league.

Refund Policy
Once participants have signed up for a Contest and are placed into a league, they may not receive a refund for any amount, partial or full, of the entry fee paid.



Lineup Selection
Roster Requirements
The chart below lists roster requirements for each team entry. Each user must select the required number of players at each position (listed below) from the available player pool. User selections are made in isolation from one another; there is no draft in this game. The user cannot use a player more than once during a Contest Period. So, if the user selects Adrian Peterson in the first Contest Weekly Period, he cannot use Peterson again for Contest Weekly Periods 2-4 of the Contest Period. The user will also not be allowed to set a lineup that does not meet the roster requirements. Once the Sunday lineup setting deadline passes, all lineup changes made after the deadline will take effect for the following week's games.

Roster Requirements
Position# of Players
Quarterback (QB)1
Running Back (RB)2
Wide Receiver (WR)2
Tight End (TE)1
Kicker (K)1
Defensive Team (DT)/Special Teams1
All Positions8


For NFL players who play more than one position, CBSSports.com will determine their position eligibility. If a player is listed at one position but then plays another for the week (e.g. a running back plays wide receiver) his statistics at the new position will count for the user's team. If any of the user's selected NFL players are injured after the lineup setting deadline, or for any reason are not available to play, the user will not be able to change them.

Player Pool
Each Contest will consist of a CBSSports.com pre-defined player pool that users will be allowed to field their roster from (roster requirements are denoted below). The chart below highlights the minimum number of players available in the player pool per position. When a player is made available in the player pool he is then never removed from the player pool during that Contest Period. However, CBSSports.com may add players to the pool throughout the Contest Period, allowing everyone in the challenge the same opportunity to select the new players. Like the original players in the player pool, these new additions would not be removed for the duration of that Contest Period.

Minimum Player Pool:
QB — 31
RB — 82
WR — 118
TE — 52
K — 30
DST — 30


The players in the player pool will lock and will not be available for selection 5-minutes prior to their game time. So, a user cannot select a player that is playing in a Thursday night game after 8:20 pm EST Thursday.

Selection Deadline
All lineups lock 5 minutes prior to the Sunday 1pm ET game. This means that users have until 5 minutes prior to Sunday's 1pm ET games to set their roster each Contest Weekly Period. Users can only select players from earlier games in that week (games prior to Sunday 1pm ET) if they get those selections in at least 5-minutes prior to the player's game. So, if the user had signed up for the group prior to Thursday at 7:25pm ET and wants to select a player from the Thursday night game, he must make his selection prior to 8:20pm ET of such Thursday. And, once the player has been selected, he is locked for that week and cannot be deselected.



Scoring
Point Values
Point Values: During each Contest Weekly Period the user's team will compete against all other participants. A team will accumulate points based on the statistics accumulated by the NFL players on the team. The chart below lists the point values.

Offensive Scoring
OFFENSIVE STATISTICQB, WR, RB, TE, K
Touchdown (Passing, Rushing or Receiving)6 points
Passing Yards1 point for every 25 yards
Rushing Yards1 point for every 10 yards
Receiving Yards1 point for every 10 yards
2 point conversion2 points
Interception-2 points
Fumble Lost-2 points
Field Goal0-49 yards = 3 points
50+ yards = 5 points
Extra Point1 point
Offensive Fumble Recovery Touchdown6 points


Defensive Scoring
DEFENSIVE STATISTICDEFENSE
Touchdown6 points
Safety2 points
Interception2 points
Fumble Recovery2 points
Sack1 point
Points Allowed0-6 = 8 points
7-13 = 6 points
14-20 = 4 points
21-27 = 2 points
28+ = 0 points
Yards Allowed(-50)-49 = 12 points
50-99 = 10 points
100-149 = 8 points
150-199 = 6 points
200-249 = 4 points
250-299 = 2 points
300+ = 0 points


Offensive Scoring (QB, RB, WR, TE). Scoring will be calculated according to the following example: If a QB throws for 200 yards, 2 TDs - rushes for 20 yards, 1 TD - and has 25 yards receiving, his point total for the week would be: 3 TDs = 18 points, 200yds Passing = 8 points, 20yds Rushing = 2 points, 25yds receiving = 2 points; or 30 total points for the week. Please note that, if the user has an active QB and an active WR who play for the same NFL team, and his QB throws a touchdown pass to his WR, then he is credited with two touchdowns on the play and he will receive 6 points for each touchdown (12 points total). Also, it should be noted that players on the user's active roster at an offensive position cannot receive individual offensive points for his team when they are on special teams.

Defensive / Special Team scores (TDs, Fumble Recoveries, INTs, Safeties or Sacks). The user's defense is awarded points when any one of its members generates either a TD, INT, fumble recovery, safety or sack. His defense also is awarded points for a kickoff or punt return that results in a TD. For instance, if the user's active defense is the Saints, and Reggie Bush returns a punt for a TD, your defense (the Saints) gets 6 points. But in that same situation, a team using Bush as an active RB would NOT be awarded 6 points for the touchdown.

Fumbles Lost by an active player on the user's roster playing offense, special teams or defense will lose 2 points if they turn the ball over to the opposing team at any time during the game. For instance, if you have Reggie Bush active at RB and he fumbles the ball away at any time while he is on the field your team will lose 2 points. This includes a fumble lost while returning a kick, interception or obviously while on offense at RB.

Defensive Points Allowed will take into account ALL the points allowed by the team as a whole. This includes points scored against the offense (TD from an interception, safeties, etc.) and special teams (punt return for a TD) as well as those scored against the defense.

Defensive Touchdowns are any touchdowns scored by the defensive team. This includes fumble returns and interception returns.

Special Teams Touchdowns are touchdowns scored by punt returns, kickoff returns or returns of a blocked Field Goal kick or punt.

To calculate the Total Yards Allowed, simply add the other team's Total Rushing and Total Passing Yards gained.

Rounding will NOT be used when calculating points from statistics. For example 49 yards rushing will result in 4 points.

Tiebreakers
League champion ties will be broken by comparing tied eligible participants' weekly performances beginning with the last week of play (week 4 of a Contest) and going backwards until the tie is broken. The participant with the higher score in an individual Contest Weekly Period within that Contest will be declared the league champion winner (the "Winner"). In the event that there is still a tie after all weekly performances are examined, total points throughout the Contest Period, by position, will be used to break the tie. Total points will be examined, by position, in the following order: Quarterback, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, Tight End, Kicker, and Defensive Team. In the event that there is still a tie after comparing total points, the title of Winner will be awarded to the eligible participant who first submitted their picks in that Contest.
