Football fans who’d like to play fantasy football for 2015’s Super Bowl XLIX, when the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots, can now extend their season thanks to a free app from Rivalry Games.
Rivalry Fantasy Sports lets users play for free, competing for points, or pay an entry fee and compete for cash.
The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
Fantasy football at Rivalry Games is different from other leagues in that players can create a team on a game-by-game basis. From there, friends or strangers can play each other, take part in four-person matchups, or create tournaments with as few as 10 to as many as 100 people.
The app works by letting fans create a six-man team consisting of one quarterback, wide receiver, running back, tight end, kicker, and defensive player.
There’s no draft, so fans can select any player they’d like. No salary caps are involved either.
Rivalry Fantasy Sports works the same way for the Super Bowl as it does for all other Rivalry Games’ fantasy games.
Players are rewarded for riskier picks through a proprietary scoring system.
Rivalry Games explains, “For example, in a matchup between Seattle TE Luke Willson and New England TE Rob Gronkowski, Willson would earn a 3x multiplier on his receiving yards. In other words, Gronkowski would earn one point per 10 yards while Willson would earn three.”
Fans can play Rivalry Fantasy Sports for free, but cash games require payment ranging anywhere from $1 to $100.
A credit card or PayPal account is required for entry fees or to receive cash rewards.
Rivalry Games claims that the odds of victory are higher with Rivalry Fantasy Sports since tournaments are kept to smaller size pools of 10 to 100 people.
