  • Publication number: 20170165581
    Abstract: A method of administering a fantasy sports contest may include steps of: obtaining a target score for the fantasy sports contest; identifying a prize corresponding to the target score; receiving input specifying a lineup of a fantasy sports team of a participant in the fantasy sports contest; determining an actual score of the lineup of the participant's team; and determining whether the actual score of the participant's lineup exceeds the target score, and if the actual score of the participant's lineup exceeds the target score, providing an indication that the prize has been awarded to the participant. The target score may depend on statistical measures and/or probability distributions of predicted scores of one or more lineups eligible for the fantasy sports contest, or a value of the prize may depend on statistical measures and/or a probability distribution of a predicted score of the lineup of the participant's team.
