FAQ

What is Fanium?

Fanium is a service that provides fun, unique fantasy games and expert-backed fantasy sports content to help you win your league.

How much does it cost to use Fanium?

All of the content on our site is available free of charge. All Fanium fantasy games will be free to play upon their launch for the 2019-2020 NFL season. To support Fanium and access premium content, including The Devy Report and The Graduates, subscribe to our Patreon.

How can I access the Fanium game?

A team is actively working to restore and re-launch our Fanium game. Launch announcements will be made at a later date.

How does the draft work?

Fanium uses a slow live draft format. Users are notified via push notification when it is their turn and are given up to 8 hours to make a selection. The player pool consists of active National Football League players. Once a player is selected, he is removed from the pool of available players. The order in which teams draft is chosen randomly and snakes each round (i.e. if one has the first pick in round 1, they will have the last pick in round 2).

What happens if I miss a pick?

If you miss a pick, the app will select the best available player for you according to our season-long point projections. If you miss two consecutive picks, your draft clock will be reduced to 15 minutes per pick to ensure that you are not damaging the experience for other users. Please turn on push notifications so we can alert you when it is your turn to pick. You can also set your team to autopick if need be.

How does the Fanium scoring system work?

A player earns fantasy points based on their performance in National Football League games each week. 

We use the following scoring system: 

20 passing yards=1 point
5 rushing yards=1 point
5 receiving yards=1 point
Touchdown
(Pass, Rush, Receiving, Return)
=7 points
Two Point Conversion=2 points
Interception=-3 points
Fumble=-3 points
Reception=1 point

What if these scoring options don’t work for my league?

Fanium offers the ability for users to change and customize their league scoring to match more commonly used settings on other platforms like ESPN or Yahoo.

How are the rosters structured?

Each starting lineup consists of 2 quarterbacks, 2 running backs, 4 wide receivers, and 2 tight ends. Each roster also has a six man bench. There are no kickers or team defenses in this game. Just roll with it.

What devices can I use to play Fanium?

To provide the best possible user experience, we have chosen to focus on the iPhone and Android for this season. The game will work on the iPad as well, but will not be available via a traditional web browser or desktop. It is our hope to eventually be able to provide our fantasy games on every mobile platform and will add support for more devices as our audience expands.

How many leagues can I sign up for?

Fanium users can sign up for a maximum of six leagues total: four private leagues and two public leagues. We encourage users to play with friends and take advantage of our intuitive public league system.

Do you have live scoring?

Yes – our scores will be updated in real-time. You can also use your team’s Twitter feed embedded within the app to get more context surrounding what’s happening in your games. We will also send out push notifications at the end of each set of games on Thursdays, Sundays, and Mondays, informing you when scores have been finalized.

How many people can join a league?

Fanium leagues are traditionally comprised of 8 teams. League size can also be adjusted to 10 or 12 teams.

Do you offer auction drafts?

At this time, Fanium does not offer auction drafts.
