Each NBA player can only be selected for one (1) quarter of a game; you must select four (4) different players (one (1) per quarter).

Fan Points: Throughout your selected NBA game, the NBA players you’ve selected will accrue (or lose) points (“Fan Points”) based on their performance. Fan Points are tabulated as follows:

Turbo Mode: While the game clock is running during your selected NBA game you will have the option of activating “Turbo Mode” by long-pressing the Turbo icon on the screen. Turbo Mode allows you to accrue Fan Points from all players on your active player’s team AND a points boost multiplier for the NBA player you selected for the quarter in question that starts at 5x and decreases as the Turbo Mode activation progresses. With each use, Turbo Mode can be activated for 48 seconds of game clock time during the NBA game you’ve selected. You will have the opportunity to use five (5) Turbo Mode activations each quarter of the game. Any Turbo Mode activation not used when a quarter concludes will be void and will not carry over to any/all subsequent quarters.

 

Statistics Corrections: Following the completion of each NBA game, all statistics and Fan Point totals are verified, and corrections are made where necessary. FanDuel’s tabulations of all statistics and corresponding Fan Points will be final.
