Game Formats

Fan Mode is a No-salary Cap game, where you can use any and every player available with no restrictions on how you build your line-up. Fan Mode player lists are ranked by average points per game.

GM Mode uses DPPG (Draftpot average points per game) cap. This limits your line-up to a capped average of how many points your players average each game played.

GM Mode games have a total cap of 150 DPPG’s.

Elite QB’s, RB’s and WR’s will have about a 20 to 25 pt avg. The majority of solid players are in the 15 to 20 point range. Untested rookies start the season with a 10 point average and will be adjusted as the season progresses. Minimum salary players have 0 to 5 average points per game.

It looks like game match-ups are not taken into account and the player rankings are based solely on average points scored per game. It is important you keep that in mind when assembling your line-ups.
