Points Formula/Rules

Each analyst selects three players and two alternates per team per week not including a longshot with odds of 50-1 or more.

The following points formula is rewarded for any winning player based on their pick status…

Top pick: 100 points

2nd pick: 75 points

3rd pick: 50 points

LS pick: 25 points

Alternate picks: 0 points

If the first alternate selected wins, the analyst can only receive points from that pick if one of the top three picks WDs.

If the second alternate selected wins, the analyst can only receive points from that pick if the original longshot pick WDs.
