Rules and scoring
Each player on fantasy goalz is allowed one account and "multi-accounting" is expressly prohibited. If fantasy goalz determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one account, any or all of your accounts may be terminated or suspended and any prizes you've won may be revoked or withheld. For more information, click here.
There are a variety of behaviors that are detrimental to fantasy goalz and other players on the Service. Engaging in those behaviors may result in suspension of some or all functions associated with your account. Suspended players are expected to respect the disciplinary actions imposed on their accounts and all communication regarding restoration of your account should take place via the support@fantasy goalz .com email account.
fantasy goalz may require users to change their user names in cases where the name is offensive or promotes a commercial venture. The requirement to change will be determined at fantasy goalz ’s sole discretion, and if requests are ignored, fantasy goalz may unilaterally change a player’s user name.
fantasy goalz will identify those players with certain levels of experience and/or expertise with a highly-experienced player (“HEP”) badge. These badges will appear alongside the player’s username, and such players may not enter beginner contests, and are also ineligible to enter certain contests reserved for players who do not have an HEP badge. A player will be tagged with an HEP badge according to the following criteria:
All open contests that are completed on fantasy goalz have a predetermined prize pool and number of entrants. Contests labeled as "Guaranteed" will always run and pay out regardless if the contest starts as unfilled. Some structured contests, however, require a specified number of participants. If that number of participants is not reached before the start of the contest, the contest will not take place and your entrance fee will be refunded. For example, a head-to-head challenge cannot take place without two willing competitors and a 10-person league will not be conducted with only 9 interested participants.
For Friends Mode Pickup leagues and private contests, the contest will still run with the predetermined prize pool if the contest is sized for at least 5 people, the maximum entry fee is $25, and at least 80% of the contest size has filled before the contest starts. If the contest does not meet all of these criteria, then it will run as a free contest and all entry fees will be refunded. fantasy goalz reserves the right to cancel contests in its sole discretion.
Contest Lock Times
We offer contests with and without late swap.
For contests that do not offer late swap, all edits will be final at the scheduled start time for the first game of the slate. That means no more entries and no more lineup changes. Let’s say you’re looking to join a Sunday NFL contest and the first game in which players are eligible for selection in that contest kicks off at 1pm EST that day. You’ll need to enter and make your last lineup change by 12:59pm - not a minute later.
If a contest offers late swap, players in your lineup can be edited until their respective scheduled game start time. Something to keep in mind is that all normal editing rules apply - you can select up to four players from one team, must select players from at least three different teams, and cannot exceed the salary cap. Additionally, you cannot swap for a player after their game has started.
For Golf, contests lock before the first tee-time of the tournament’s opening round. However, fantasy goalz reserves the right to update the lock time in the event the tournament begins before the scheduled lock time. In the event that the first tee-time of the tournament’s opening round occurs before contest lock, any new entries made or entries with edits made after the first tee-time of the opening round will be cancelled and refunded.
For NASCAR, contests lock before the race's scheduled start time. However, fantasy goalz reserves the right to update the lock time in the event the race begins before or after (in the case of postponed races) the scheduled lock time. In the event that the race officially begins before contest lock, any new entries made or entries with edits made after the race began will be cancelled and refunded.
For single game 2nd half slates, only the stats accumulated in the 2nd half of the game and overtime (if necessary) will count towards point totals. The start of the contest is determined by the scheduled start time of that contest, as stated in the contest details. fantasy goalz reserves the right to push back the start time of a single round half slate contest if the 1st half of the underlying game is not over before the scheduled start time of the contest. In such a scenario, fantasy goalz will push back the start time of the contest to 10 minutes after the end of the 1st half.
For single game 4th quarter slates, only the stats accumulated in the 4th quarter of the game and overtime (if necessary) will count towards point totals. The start of the contest is determined by the scheduled start time of that contest, as stated in the contest details. fantasy goalz reserves the right to push back the start time of a single round 4th quarter contest if the 3rd quarter of the underlying game is not over before the scheduled start time of the contest.
For tennis, match times are subject to change. In some cases, a delayed match time may change again to be played earlier in the day.
All contests have limits on the maximum number of entries that a single user may submit. These limits will be specified in the description of each contest. While these limits may vary, you will generally not be allowed to submit multiple entries exceeding:
3 % of the total Entries for contests with 2 to 4999 Entries
150 Entries for contests with 5000 or more Entries
For Golf, fantasy goalz may offer $150+ entry fee contests with higher limits on the maximum number of entries a single user may submit.
Users may cancel entries by clicking on the 'Cancel Entry' link located at the bottom of your roster confirmation page or by clicking the red 'x' next to your entry on the Upcoming page.
For contests with entry fees of less than $100
You will not be able to cancel a matched H2H contest
You will not be able to cancel an entry if the contest is already filled and within 15 minutes of game start
For contests with entry fees of $100 or more
You will not be able to cancel a matched H2H contest
You can cancel an unmatched H2H at any time
You will not be able to cancel an entry if the contest is full
You will not be able to cancel an entry within 15 minutes to game start regardless of whether the contest is full or not
fantasy goalz will not accommodate any cancellation requests that fall in the above scenarios. fantasy goalz also has no obligation to honor cancellation requests that are not received, or which are received after these deadlines, due to technical difficulties or other reasons.
Rules for how postponed games are treated in fantasy goalz contests vary depending on the sport and contest type.
For NFL contests, if an NFL game is postponed to a later date more than 24-hours in advance of slate lock, all players from that game will receive zero points. If an NFL game is postponed to a later date within 24-hours to slate lock, you will receive points provided the game is played no later than Wednesday of that week.
For XFL contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than Wednesday of that week.
For one day Baseball, Basketball, NHL, and Soccer contests, if the postponed game is played on the same day then you will receive points for your players in those games as normal. If a game is postponed to a later date or called off for any reason, any players you have selected for that game will receive zero points.
For one day League of Legends, CSGO, Call Of Duty, and Rocket League contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played no later than the following day.
For NASCAR & ENASCAR contests, if a race is postponed and is not rescheduled to run within seven days following the start of the race, all entry fees will be refunded.
For any Basketball, Baseball, NHL, Soccer, League of Legends, CSGO, Call Of Duty, and Rocket League contests that are scheduled to include games from multiple days (such as some playoff contests), you will receive points for any games that are played no later than the day after the last game scheduled as part of the contest.
For slates involving multiple games, if game cancellations and/or postponements mean there is only one game left in a contest, then the contest will be canceled and all entry fees will be refunded. NOTE: A game will be considered to be 'played' on a given day if it begins on that day and is completed no later than 6am Eastern on the following day.
For PGA Golf contests, postponed rounds will only be counted if they are completed before the Wednesday following the start of a tournament.
For Outlaw Golf contests, postponed rounds will only be counted if they are completed no later than three days after the originally scheduled final round of the tournament.
For College Football contests, you will receive points for any postponed games that are played within three days of the originally scheduled game. For example, if a College Football game is scheduled to start on Saturday, the game must be played by the following Tuesday.
For Tennis contests, if a match is postponed, you will receive all points for stats accumulated in the match and the contest will not be finalized until the match is completed. Please note this may result in a delay of contest settlement until the day following the completion of the postponed match. If the tournament is postponed and is not rescheduled to begin within a week of the originally scheduled start time, all entry fees will be refunded.
For UFC contests, in the event that the entire event is cancelled or postponed to a future date, all player entries will be cancelled and refunded.
Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19 game suspensions and postponements, fantasy goalz reserves the right to make changes to these rules at its discretion.
Rules for how suspended games are treated vary depending on the sport and game type. A game is considered suspended if it is unfinished, but scheduled to be completed at a future date.
For all sports, the statistics compiled prior to the point of suspension will count towards contests.
For a suspended NFL, XFL or CFB game, you will receive points for stats accumulated in the remainder of the game if it is played no later than Wednesday of that week. Stats accumulated in the remainder of the game will not count towards contests if the game resumes after Wednesday of that week or remains unfinished.
For one day Baseball, Basketball, NHL, and Soccer contests, stats accumulated on a later date when the game resumes will not count towards contests.
For one day League of Legends, CSGO, Call Of Duty and Rocket League contests, you will receive points for stats accumulated in the remainder of the game(s) only if they are completed no later than the following day.
For any Baseball, Basketball, NHL, Soccer, League of Legends, CSGO, Call Of Duty, and Rocket League contests that are scheduled to include games from multiple days (such as some playoff contests), you will receive points for stats accumulated in the remainder of the game(s) only if they are completed no later than the day after the last game scheduled as part of the contest.
For Golf contests, if a tournament is suspended after rounds have been played, and it will not complete within a week from the event start date, the game will be marked complete and the future scores will not count towards settlement. If a Golfer withdraws from play mid-competition he will only receive points for his completed holes. For example, if a Golfer withdraws on the 16th hole of the first round, he will receive points earned through the first 15 holes. Incomplete rounds are not eligible for the 'Bogey Free Round' bonus.
For NASCAR & ENASCAR contests, if a race is suspended and resumed within seven days of the start of the race, you will receive points for stats accumulated in the remainder of the race. If a race is suspended and is not resumed within seven days following the start of the race, the race will be marked complete and future scores will not count towards settlement, provided that at least 50% of the scheduled laps have been completed. Otherwise, all entry fees will be refunded. If a driver withdraws from the race he will only receive points for his completed laps. For example, if a driver withdraws before completing the 8th lap, he will receive points earned through the first 7 laps.
For Tennis contests, if a match is suspended and completed at a later time, you will receive points for all stats accumulated in the match. If a tournament is suspended after matches have been played, and it will not resume within a week from the day of suspension, the game will be marked complete and the future scores will not count towards settlement.
For UFC contests, in the event that the event is cancelled midway through, all player entries will be cancelled and refunded. If an event is suspended or delayed, fantasy goalz in its sole discretion may allow contests to remain live until the event is completed. After final event results become available, the contests will be finalized and settled.
Single Game Slates
2nd Half or Single Quarter Only Slates Contest Player Pools and Traded Players Player Status Indicators When drafting a lineup, you may see player status indicators informing you of a player’s injury status, whether he’s active in the lineup or other information relating to a player’s status in the lineup (e.g., batting order for baseball, projected line for hockey, etc.).
As you build your lineup, you may consult the Indicator Legend at the bottom of the draft screen for more information on Player Status Indicators.
These indicators are based on information provided to us by a 3rd party, and while we do our best to ensure accuracy, fantasy goalz is not responsible for the content.
Only one game of a doubleheader will count for fantasy goalz scoring. Players will only score points for the game which starts at the time listed in the contest details. This will typically (but not always) be the game at the originally scheduled time.
Lineup restrictions governing the mix of players allowed in your lineup vary based on contest type. For most contests, you must pick players from at least three different teams and you may not pick more than four players from the same team. However, for MLB contests, you may select up to five players from the same team, provided one player is a pitcher. For single game contests, you must pick players from at least two different teams.
Use of unauthorized scripts is prohibited on fantasy goalz . Authorized scripts will be made available through fantasy goalz and will be accessible to all users prior to game entry. Currently, fantasy goalz allows all users to enter multiple lineups into contests via CSV files using the "Upload Lineups" tool available on the draft screen. fantasy goalz also allows users to edit multiple lineups via CSV files using the "CSV Edit" tool available on the Upcoming page and the Live page (for late swap).
You can withdraw your money at any time, subject to anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing. For all withdrawals we require a valid mailing address, birthday and social security number in order to file the appropriate tax forms at year end. To withdraw, simply click the Withdraw link on your account dropdown or in your My Account section. Enter the amount you wish to withdraw, along with payee information. PayPal requests will be processed within 48 hours, while check withdrawals take 7-10 days to process. We conduct anti-fraud checks on playing patterns and deposits prior to processing a withdrawal.
In cases where you have received a bonus or other benefits as a result of your deposit and have not yet played through the deposit (entering contests whose total entry fees equal the value of the deposit), fantasy goalz reserves the right to refuse the withdrawal and/or close your account.
You may deposit into your account using Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or PayPal (American Express can be used via PayPal). If you're having any problems depositing money then get in touch and we'll help you out. There may be limits on the amount you may deposit in certain circumstances.
In accordance with state requirements, fantasy goalz restricts deposits in any calendar month for residents of certain states unless the user has requested and received approval for an increase. For Massachusetts residents the deposit limit level is $1,000 per calendar month. For Tennessee residents and people located in Tennessee, the deposit limit level is $2,500 per calendar month. For Maryland residents and people located in Maryland, the deposit limit level is $5,000 per calendar month.
Contest Settlement and Payment
We try to settle contests and run payments as quickly as possible, but must ensure we do so accurately. Most contests are settled shortly after the last game finishes. However, to settle we have to wait until all the player statistics have been reported by our third party stats provider. This lets us ensure that the final box scores are complete. Please note there can sometimes be last minute changes. If there is difficulty obtaining official results or issues with scoring, the contest may be settled the following day.
During every game, we receive live scoring from one of our stats providers. After each game has ended, we receive the final box score, and settle all the contests. On rare occasions, the final box scores are revised after they have been released. When that happens, the player scores on fantasy goalz will not be updated and the settlements will not be revised. Note that this is not the same situation as a case where a correction needs to be made after settlement due to a problem with the data feed or the settlement process. In these cases the settlement process (including payment) may be reversed and games resettled correctly.
Service Access and Editing Problems
While we try to ensure that fantasy goalz is functioning smoothly at all times, like any online service we may periodically experience periods of outage or slow performance. These can sometimes result in an inability to access the Service, problems editing lineups, or problems entering new contests. If you're unable to access the Service, please report the problems by emailing us at support@fantasy goalz .com. If there are sustained periods where players are unable to access Service functionality, or otherwise prevented from editing lineups, or in certain other situations, we may provide instructions on how to cancel your entries over email prior to game time.
fantasy goalz also reserves the right to cancel contests at our discretion, without any restrictions. This would typically be done only in cases where we believe that due to problems on the Service or events impacting the sporting events, there would be a widespread impact on the integrity of contests.
Users located in AR, MO, or PA are not eligible to participate in paid single game half slate contests.
