About Yahoo Daily Fantasy Single Game Contests

Single game contests are a new Yahoo Daily Fantasy contest offering which allows users to enter daily fantasy contests for professional sports events taking place on a single day. Available single game contests can be found in the Daily Fantasy lobby.

For additional details on contest rules, please visit the Official Rules section within the Paid Fantasy Terms of Service. Users set their lineup for the contest using players from the two teams playing in the single sporting event and must draft at least one athlete to their lineups from both teams. No entrant may have a roster consisting entirely of players from the same team. Contest rules and scoring vary by sport. Prizes for overall winners will be awarded following completion of the contest.

  • Lineups must contain at least one player from both teams that is not a DEF.
  • One roster slot is designated as ‘Superstar’ and receives 1.5x their normal fantasy points.
