New for the 2016 season, we have added a pair of Playoff Football pool formats. You can currently choose from our Survivor Playoff or Bracket Playoff options. We plan to add more options for next season as well.
These are sometimes referred to as Eliminator Football pools as well. Entrants pick one team each week of the NFL playoffs with the intention of the selection winning. If the team selected wins or ties, the entry survives to the following week. If the team selected loses, the entry is eliminated from the pool. If all remaining teams lose during a week, they all move on to the next week. The final surviving entry is the winner, unless there are multiple teams alive after the championship game. Teams may only be selected one time for the duration of the pool.
Default Picks - Choose from several options to assign a team to an entry that doesn't make a pick prior to the deadline.
These are basically Pick'em style pools, where you pick the entire playoff results prior to the first game. Entrants pick the winner of each game through the playoff bracket (remember the #1 seed plays the lowest remaining seed in the 2nd round). If the team selected wins their game that round, they are awarded the point value for that round (1 for Wild Card, 2 for Divisional, 3 for Conference and 5 for Championship). The entry with the most points at the end of the playoff tournament is the winner.
