Weekly Game

Here are the Official Rules for the Pro Football Beast Weekly Prop Game:
last updated on September 8, 2015

For your entry to be officially recognized, it must meet these three requirements:

1. It must be posted to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter in the correct time window.
2. Winning entries must have seven or more correct, as detailed below.
3. If your entry is a winner, you must email ProFootballBeast with the necessary info.

The details…

1. Posting to Social Media.
Each week, there are instructions on when to share it on social media.

If you do not follow these rules, your entry will be invalid. Don’t post your picks on Wednesday and then get angry when it is not eligible. Don’t post your picks at 9am Pacific Time on Sunday, and then get mad when it is not eligible.

To make your picks, circle ONE of the two choices for each question. Circle your answer clearly so there is no question.

For the fill in the blank answers, write “Eli Manning” or “P Manning”, not just a last name for your player answer. An answer that is not specific enough or legible enough will be deemed incorrect at the discretion of ProFootballBeast.

The EXTRAS section is just for fun and does not count towards your score.

Use your mobile device to take a picture of your completed entry, and share it on either FACEBOOK, TWITTER, or INSTAGRAM with the hashtag #PFBPropGame.

Post your completed picks on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, and you’ll be good. Or get them up on Sunday before 9am Eastern time.

Remember, every social media post has a time stamp, and that’s what will be used as the official entry time.


 

2. What constitutes a winning entry.

If you get all 10 correct, congratulations! You are a wizard! And you just won a $100 Amazon Gift Card!

NOTE: There are only five (5) of these $100 Amazon Gift Cards up for grabs in the 2015 season. If all five of them have been won before the end of the season, perfect entries will no longer be awarded a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

If you get 7 or more correct, you earn one (1) Golden Ticket Entry into the ProFootballBeast Championship Game Prop Contest Grand Prize!

The PFB Championship Game Prop Bet Contest will be free to enter for anyone, but only folks with Golden Ticket Entries will be eligible to win the $100 Grand Prize, to be awarded on February 10th 2016, during the week following the Championship Game. You may only earn one (1) Golden Ticket Entry per week, for a maximum of seventeen (17) entries, should you somehow get 7 or more correct in the weekly prop game every week of the season. If you earn multiple Golden Ticket Entries throughout the season, this represents multiple entries you will be able to make in the Championship Prop Game Contest.

More details on the Championship Prop Game will be given later, but the official list of players who have earned a Golden Ticket Entry will be kept at the bottom of this page.

Scoring Note 1: If it’s a “who will win this game” question, and the game ends in a tie, everyone will be given a correct answer for that question.

Scoring Note 2: For all fantasy-related questions, Top QB/WR/RB scoring will be determined by ESPN standard scoring, which is well-documented on ESPN’s fantasy site.

Scoring Note 3: The “Extras” section of the contest does not count towards your score. It’s just a way to make the submissions more fun.

The Fine Print
ProFootballBeast reserves the right to determine the correct number of answers for any entry submitted into the contest. (In other words, if you circled both answers, or neither answer, or it’s unclear how you answered, it will be up to PFB’s discretion.) This is a game of skill, but it is also just a game. Be respectful, don’t try to cheat, and have fun with it.

If you didn’t get in on the Kickstarter, get the Beast Book on Amazon.
