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").
CBS Interactive Inc. ("CBSI") will serve as the Administrator of the Challenge and Contests, and will be responsible for resolving any disputes that arise regarding violations of the rules.
You may sign up to participate in the Challenge at any time after August 20, 2013.

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.
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.
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.
