FanDuel Fantasy Football

Being the most popular fantasy sport, it should come as no surprise that fantasy football at FanDuel offers the widest variety of contests to join. With over $20 million in total payouts through the course of the 2012 NFL season, this fast-paced alternative to season-long fantasy football leagues has quickly become a regular weekly activity for fantasy football lovers of all ages.

With both public and private leagues on offer, there’s never a shortage of NFL contests to join at FanDuel. Our draft lobby presents contests that range from free to $500+ entry fees, with league sizes ranging from two to thousands. This gives any player the ability to choose a format that best suits his or her preferences. 

There is a simple three step method to playing. Step one is to pick a contest. This is done through the draft lobby, which shows the available contests to join for that week of the NFL season. Details of the fee to enter are displayed, as well as the entry fee, league size, and scoring rules. Cash payouts to winners are also displayed here. 

Step two is to pick a team. This is done based on the players competing in the NFL matchups that take place during that day or week of the contest. 

Our live scoring allows you to keep an eye on the matchups in real-time to see how your chosen players do. Points are awarded depending on their performance and the entrants whose teams rack up the most points win the game and take home the cash prizes. Payouts are rewarded to winners on the same day of the contest. 


Details of the fantasy football scoring system are shown on the website. Points for offensive plays range from 0.1 per rushing yard made, to 6 points for a passing touchdown. Defensive points include 1 for a sack and 2 for interceptions and blocked kicks.

Football fans who enjoy showing their skill at picking a team will love FanDuel’s fantasy football games. Whether for pleasure or the chance to win some money, nothing quite captures the excitement of fantasy football like the daily format does.
