Pay the Fan – Fantasy Football Contest Review

Jul 22, 2008

I recently stumbled upon a fantasy football game called Pay the Fan (www.paythefan.com).  It’s a weekly game that allows you to pick your lineup out of the entire fantasy football pool.  The catch is you can only use each player twice during the course of the year so you can’t mindlessly plug in Tom Brady, LT, and Adrian Peterson every week.  A starting lineup consists of a QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, a TE, a K, and a DST.  Pretty standard lineup so fantasy footballers will be familiar with it. 

The scoring looks like this:

There are two versions you can choose from.  You can join a League before the season kicks off to be eligible for the Grand Prize of $250,000.  You can select a Private League to use with your friends or a Public League that’s open to anyone.  Alternatively, you can play the Weekly version and you could take home the $10,000 Best of the Week prize.

What would a fantasy football game be without the ability to stir the pot against your rivals?  Well Pay the Fan has that covered with their Smack Board.  You can taunt your opponents as you dominate them. 

So you get to play a simple fantasy football game with $10K weekly payouts and a $250K Grand Prize.  That’s got to cost a pretty penny, right?  Not exactly.  The full season cost is $69.95.  If you break it down, that’s $4.12 per week (17 week seasons).  That’s like playing $0.60 a day in the lottery.  Only, your odds are much better here, especially when you consider your fantasy football knowledge will give you an advantage.  If you just want to get in on the Weekly Prizes (or if you miss the boat for the Full Season package) it will cost you only $39.95.  Here is a look at the Full Season Prizes:
