2017 NFL Winner-Takes-All Picks: Week 1

in sports •  2 years ago 

ATS-WTA_2017_week1.jpg

The 2017 NFL season started off with a bang and we’re about to heat things up on Steemit!


In the first game of the NFL’s 2017 regular season, the Chiefs upset the Patriots in Foxboro. For the first contest of the Winner-Takes-All season, which Steemit user will come out on top and claim the entire weekly pot? Have you been brushing up on your football knowledge and think you have what it takes to be the champ?

Let’s find out!



Here’s how it all works.


Every week throughout the 2017 NFL regular season I will select five games from which contestants will make their winning picks. The contestant with the most correct selections will be the sole winner and will receive a portion of the weekly pot. The rules will be as follows:

1 – Contestants must choose one winner for each of the selected games. Contestants can only enter one weekly submission per account. Submissions must be entered prior to the first scheduled game time. LATE SUBMISSIONS OR EDITS MADE TO SUBMISSIONS AFTER THE START OF THE FIRST GAME WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE CONTEST – NO EXCEPTIONS.

2 – Contestants must choose point totals for each of the Monday and Sunday night games. If there are two or more contestants with the same amount of correct picks for the week, then the contestant closest to the game point totals will be the winner. Monday night games will be the first tie-breaker and Sunday night games will be the second tie-breaker. (For the weeks when there are not one game being played on each night, special tie-break rules will be mentioned and applied.) If contestants are still tied after the tie-breakers have been applied, then the contestant who submitted their picks first will be the winner.

3 – Contestant weekly Winner-Takes-All records will accumulate throughout the regular season to determine a WTA season winner. TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SEASON CONTEST, CONTESTANTS MUST PARTICIPATE IN A MINIMUM OF SEVEN (7) WEEKLY WTA CONTESTS. Contestants that have four (4) or more identical selections (picks and points) of other users will not be eligible for the season contest. The three (3) contestants with the best season records will share the season pot, divided as follows:


PlaceReward Percentage
First60%
Second25%
Third15%


At the end of the regular season, I will announce a potential playoff contest for a minimum of 8 top contestants throughout the season. The potential playoff format and rules have not been determined at this time, so watch for future updates.



Post Rewards and Payouts


The full SBD rewards from each of the weekly posts will be dedicated to the weekly contest payouts, seasonal payouts, and my fantasy sports development fund. These rewards will be divided as follows:


FundPercentage
Weekly60%
Season20%
FSD20%



Winner-Takes-All: Week 1



Game Selections


The game selections for Week 1 of the Winner-Takes-All contest are listed below. Choose your game winners for all five games and the point totals for each of the three games being played on Sunday night (Giants @ Cowboys) and Monday night. The late game on Monday night will be the first tie-breaker, followed by the early Monday night game, then the Sunday night game, if necessary.

Game schedules are from NFL.com.
