About pick deadlines in Pro and College Pick’em groups

Pick deadlines in Pro and College Pick’em groups can’t be edited once the first deadline of the season has passed and it isn’t possible to retroactively apply individual picks. Private group commissioners can edit a team's picks before the deadline if that team gave permission to do so when joining the group.

Public Groups

In all Public Groups, the deadline to submit picks is 5 minutes before the start of each game.

Private Groups

Commissioners can select one of the following deadlines:

  • Five minutes before the start of each game.
  • Five minutes before the start of the first game of the week.
  • 3pm PT one week before each week’s first game (College Pick’em only).
  • Sunday at 10am PT (Pro Football Pick’em only).
- Picks for early week matchups (such as Thursday night games) must be made before that game’s scheduled start times.
