The Fanball Number is a numeric rating assigned to every Fanball user. The rating scale ranges from 0-100, and is updated every day after users play a Fanball contest. Much like the player rating system on a video game franchise, the higher your Fanball Number, the higher your perceived skill level.
The Fanball Number is derived by our super computer analyzing game play data for each user with emphasis on which sport you play, winning percentages, size of contests, entry fees and other key variables.
Contests are also assigned a numerical rating, which can limit players with certain Fanball Numbers from entering some games. We're attempting to level the playing field while allowing casual and novice DFS players to seek games with their ilk, while allowing the more advanced DFS players to play in different games where they can test their might and become the best of the best.
