1 point for predicting a player is taken in the first round.
Example: If you predict Myles Garrett goes #3 to the Bears, and he is drafted #1 by the Browns, you get a point for correctly predicting him as a first rounder.
5 points for predicting a player will be drafted at a specific pick number.
Example: If you predict Myles Garrett goes #3 to the Bears, but the Cowboys traded up to draft him at #3, you get 5 points for correctly predicting Garrett was taken at pick #3.
5 points for predicting a player will be drafted by a specific team.
Example: If you predict Myles Garrett goes #3 to the Bears, but the Bears trade down to pick #6 and select him, you get 5 points for correctly predicting Garrett would be taken by the Bears.
Add it all up…
Adding this all up, if you predict Myles Garrett goes #3 to the Bears and he goes #3 to the Bears, you get 11 points, for Player-Pick (5 points) Player-Team (5 points) and First Rounder (1 point)
20 point BONUS for predicting a trade.
Predicting a trade is difficult, so correctly doing so will be well rewarded. If you predict that a team will trade (up or down, doesn’t matter) for a specific player, and they do take that player in a draft slot that wasn’t theirs before the contest locked, you gain a 20 point Trade Bonus in addition to any other points you might score.
For example, if you predict the Bears will trade back to pick #6 and select Myles Garrett, and they end up trading up to #1 to select Myles Garrett, you score 26 points. 1 point for First Rounder, 5 points for Player-Team, and 20 points for the Trade Bonus.
