NBA Scoring and Contest Rules on Draft Kings
In each contest, participants will be assigned a fixed salary cap of $50,000 that they can use to draft their entire 8 player roster.
The Player Pool will consist of all NBA players expected to be playing on a given game day. The NBA schedule that applies to that days games will be posted on the draft page. Any missing players will not be added to the pool once DraftKings starts offering contests for that day.
Player salaries will also not change once DraftKings starts offering contests for that day. They will however, be updated daily as the season continues
Contest results and winners will be based on the total points scored across each entrant’s 8 player roster. Winnings can be collected after the last game is completed for that day.
DraftKings require that you use players from at least two different teams and from 2 different games on your daily line-ups.
