Like other aspects of fantasy football, the payouts for either winning each week or reaching high in the standings by the end of the season are defined by the rules.

Individual weekly prizes can be awarded for the highest score through the week and the highest weekly score by the end of the season, or for simple first place, second place, third place standings based on the full season and playoffs.

These are completely individual, and it is not uncommon to see customized variables, like the lowest scoring team throughout the season gets a pity prize of $5, where the highest scoring team gets $50. Teams can be awarded prizes on the best winning record, the most touchdowns scored by their lineup or the greatest number of QB sacks - this is an individual choice, but most people lean towards keeping things simple and only paying out to the people that reach the playoffs.

If you play fairly well, for example, if you have a roughly .500 winning percentage and a few high scorers, you can earn your money back in prize money at the end of the season. If you do exceptionally well, you can make three times this or more.
