FAQ

What is live fantasy sports and how is it different from other fantasy sports apps?

1. Our live platform let's you pick and drop players live in-game, in a market where player prices change in real-time based on in-game performance.
 
2. Our multi-sport contests let you create fantasy teams with players from different sports.
 
3. Our user ranking system ensures a level playing field for users of all skill levels. Beginners can choose to play against only other beginners, instead of having to compete against professionals.
 

Where can I find StockJocks?

StockJocks is available on iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android devices.
 

How do I play?

Playing StockJocks is simple. From the 'Lobby', you can join public contests and create your own private contests. In each contest you join, you get a fixed amount of virtual StockJocks dollars to buy players with. Winners are determined by the highest profit.
 

Is StockJocks free?

Yes. StockJocks offers free contests with real cash prizes! We also offer paid contests which let you compete for bigger cash prizes.
 

Do I need a credit card to sign up?

No. All you need to sign up and play is a valid email address, no credit card or other personal information is required.
 

How do you determine player prices?

A player's season start price is determined by his previous season statistical totals and averages. A player's price changes based on changes in his combined statistical averages from this season and last season. The statistics that effect player prices are displayed in the 'In-Game' tab on the player detail screens and can also be seen on our Contest Rules page.
 

Why do player prices drop when they sub off?

As mentioned in the answer above, player prices are based on their statistical averages - so, when a player subs off, his averages drop slightly as the game continues to progress. Once they re-enter the game and start recording stats again, their price will begin to rise as their averages increase.
 

Do I need to set my lineup before the game starts?

No! This is the beauty of live fantasy sports. You can pick and drop players from your lineup at any moment, even in-game!
 

When does my lineup become fixed?

Never! You are always in control of your lineup. No fixed lineups, just ultimate control.
 

I joined a contest earlier but I don’t see it anymore. What happened?

Non-guaranteed prize contests (those without “GPP” in the contest name) will automatically close at the enter by time if the contest has not filled by then. Guaranteed prize contests (look for “GPP” in the contest name) will continue regardless if it fills before the enter by time or not. At any time you may click the “i" symbol on the contest detail screen to see more contest information.

 

I just joined a contest for tomorrow but can’t buy or sell players yet. Why is that?

While contests are typically visible to join at least 24 hours in advance of the contest starting, buying/selling does not start until the contest opens, which is 9 AM EST. So for instance, if you join an NFL Sunday contest tonight, you are not able to buy/sell players until tomorrow morning. The reason for this is because overnight we capture any official scoring revisions by the leagues and do not want to have the next day's contests affected. We are currently working on a solution to improve this process going forward.

 

My contest has started, but I have some players who aren’t playing until later. Can I still change them?

Yes. You can change players whenever you want, as often as you want. Your lineup is never locked.
 

What happens if one of my players gets injured or does not play?

You can drop an injured player, or a player who does not play, at any time. Never worry again about any of your players scoring zero.
 

Do I need a player at each position?

No. You may select players from whichever positions you choose.
 

Is there a minimum number of players that I need on my team?

No. You may select as many players as you want.
 

Is there a maxmium number of transactions I can make?

No. You can make as many transactions as you want.
 

How often do player prices update?

Player prices update every 10-15 seconds.

 

What happens if a contest ends in a tie?

If a contest ends in a tie, the users who are tied will split the prize equally. For example, if the 2nd place prize in a contest is $300 and the 3rd place prize is $100, the two users who are tied for 2nd would each get $200.
 

Are StockJocks contests skill-based or chance-based?

All contests in StockJocks are skill-based games.
 

How do I invite someone to my contest?

StockJocks offers 2 simple ways to invite others. After joining a contest, an invite prompt will appear for you to send invitations via text message or email. At any time thereafter, you can click the '+' button at the top right corner to reopen this invite prompt. All the receipient needs to do is click the invitation link and, if they already have StockJocks installed on their device, they will be taken directly to that contest detail screen.
