To start things off it's important to explain what Fantasy Sports is and how it works. Fantasy Sports is a term that refers to a contests of skill in which users compete against each other by creating teams consisting of real players from a professional sport.
You can win these contests by choosing the players that you think will perform well in the real life sport games. These players get rated on their performance in the games that they play for their club. A point system, based on the individual actions of the players, is used to decide the score of the individual player on the No Limit Fantasy Sports platform. These points are called Fantasy Points (FP), you can see them here on the image below for each individual player. The more points your player has the better, because if your team has the most points at the end of the contests you will win.
So you actually choose, real life players from your favorite sports on No Limit Fantasy Sports. You get a fixed budget (called a salary cap) per team which you have to use to buy your players with (see the image below).
This is where the skill aspect comes into play, trying to find a good mix of "expensive and high scoring players" and to find the "cheapest" players with the highest scoring potential.
But of course it's about the actual live performance of the player in their upcoming game. So you should use the Fantasy Points (FP) as an indication of the performances of your players but this can change in the upcoming game. Once the game starts we track all the live events of the game for your players and assign them a (live) score, you can see that here below in the image. And this (live) score is what it's all about. You can see in the image below we track the individual (live) score but also the total of the whole team which you can see above the field. We show the Fantasy Points (FP) as well so you can see if the player is performing above or below his projection.
On the Live Score page we also track your opponents their performance which you can see below your own team, as you can see in the image below.
To increase your chances, to select the best team, you can do research on the individual players to see their past performances, injuries updates, even check out the players social media through the No Limit Fantasy Sports platform. It's all about getting to know your players and to make sure they are the best fit for your team.
After the team is carefully selected find a contest you want to enter on the Contest page, which can be free entry or a paid buy-in. Once entered, you compete against the other contestants and the teams they made. The end goal is making it to the top of the contests by having the highest total (live) score with you team. If that happens you will win a certain percentage of the prize pool, depending on your final position in the contest.
