NFL Fantasy Survivor Pool


The GDF Fantasy Survivor Pool is a combination of Fantasy Football and NFL Survivor Pools. You pick a different fantasy team each week and need 80 points to survive. You can't pick the same player twice.

How the pool works

  • Each week, you will select a team of 9 fantasy players, consisting of:
    • 1 quarterback
    • 2 running backs
    • 2 wide receivers
    • 1 tight end
    • 1 kicker
    • 1 team def / st
    • 1 Flex (any above position)
  • Your team will earn fantasy points based on your players performance, using standard fantasy scoring rules (see below)
  • You can't select the same player twice
    • If you select Aaron Rodgers in week 1, you won't be able to select him again
  • Each week, your team must accumulate greater than or equal to 80 fantasy points, or you will be eliminated from the pool

Entry Fee:

  • The entry fee is $60 or two entries for $100

    • If you don't have paypal or venmo, you can email me at to arrange another payment method
  • If you refer two people who join the pool, you can receive $10 off your entry fee. Max referrals is 10 or $50 off


  • If their are 1 or more surviving entries after week 17:
    • The surviving entry with the most fantasy points at the end of the season wins ~80% of the pot
    • All other surviving entries will split ~20% of the pot
    • Note: I may round the 80-20% split to even figures
  • If no entry survives through week 17
    • The last entry remaining wins the full pot
    • If the final remaining entries are eliminated in the same week, the entry with the most fantasy points after the week wins the full pot
  • I am not taking any payout, fee, free entry or tip for running the pool.

Entering picks:

  • Players will lock based on their individual gametimes.
  • The website timestamps your picks, so in the event there is any confusion or technical glitch I will refer to the timestamp.
  • If you are having problems, please send me an email - I will use the timestamp on the email to determine proper eligibility and update your pick manually.
