    Concept: Select one winner each week in an NFL game; however, once you use a team, you cannot use that team again for the rest of the season.

    Concept: Salary-cap based fantasy football. No draft; you’re free to choose whomever you want on your team – but you have to stay under the cap, just like in real football. The cap money must be maximized across a nine-player roster (two quarterbacks, two running backs, two wideouts and one each of tight end, kicker and team defense/special teams), with each talent having a specific price on the market. Players tally points based on performance, with the scoring legend similar to most fantasy formats.

    Based on performance and thus shifting demand for a particular player, pricing can fluctuate up or down in a given week. The goal of the game being to balance your budget and blend both costly stars and discounted sleepers in order to create margins and dividends. Invest in an inexpensive talent and if he capably produces, his salary will rise, but you continue to pay him the price you originally agreed on for as long as he is in your player portfolio.

    Concept: Pick who you think will win each NFL game every week. This one does not utilize a spread; all you have to do is pick the winning teams.

    Concept: Same as above, but in this game you are picking against the spread.

    Concept: Pick the winners, but this time it is for college games rather than the NFL. The twist to this one is that you are ranking your picks based on the game you have the most confidence in getting the winner correct, to the one you have the least confidence in getting right.

    Concept: No salary cap, no draft; just pick an 8-man roster among any college football players using a standard fantasy football scoring system each week. Two QB, two RB, a WR/TE, K and D/ST.
