How to Play Streak

After creating an entry, you can play on either the web OR in the ESPN Fantasy App on iOS or Android.


How to Play Streak on Web

On your "Make Pick" page you'll find all of the matchups we're offering as choices for that particular day. Each matchup has a lock time (which is often estimated and subject to change) in which your selection must be submitted by. YOU CAN ONLY SELECT ONE MATCHUP AT A TIME. Once the matchup has gone FINAL you will be able to select any other matchup which hasn't started yet, meaning you can absolutely select more than one a day.

Here are examples of "straight up" matchups between two teams:

  • NCAA FOOTBALL - Oregon Ducks at UCLA Bruins
  • NFL - Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs
Here are examples of "prop" matchups between teams, players or a combination of both:
  • NFL - Tom Brady Pass Completions vs. New York Jets 1st Downs
  • MLB - Colorado Rockies Hits vs. Clayton Kershaw Strikeouts

How to Play Streak on the App

Once in the ESPN Fantasy App, locate the Streak logo (slanted "S") on the top row of game icons. You will land on your entry, which will display your current streak, monthly record and the "Overall Leaders" box. If you have a pick selected or one that has locked because it's started, it will display under "Your Current Pick". If would like to make a new pick, change your current pick that hasn't locked, or simply view all the matchups available for that day, use the following steps:
  • Open the menu in the burger (top left three white lines) and select "Make Pick" OR if still on the home screen, scroll down to where it says "Top Matchups" and click on the "All Matchups" link to the right of the screen. You can also scroll all the way to the bottom of the page where you will find an "All Matchups" button.
  • Scroll down the list to find the matchup you would like to pick.

Once your current pick goes final OR if you decide to forfeit the pick, you will be credited with a win or a loss (depending on what you picked) and are free to select another matchup. Each individual month is considered to be its own contest period. The entry who puts together the longest win streak during the month OR the entry who collects the most wins during a month will win cash prizes. Note: Be sure to set up alerts to get notifications of when your current pick goes final,

For most matchups the side with the HIGHER score, time or total will be declared the winner, but in some cases the LOWER side will win. If you win a matchup your streak continues, if you lose it you're back to 0 - what we call L1.

You are not required to play every day, but the more matchups you predict successfully the longer your streak will be! In the event a matchup that you selected does not take place (for any reason) your streak will NOT end, rather the matchup will be listed as "Cancelled", "Postponed" or "OFF" and scored as a "PUSH".

If at any point you'd like to make a new selection while the matchup you've selected is in progress you may elect to FORFEIT, at which point you will be given a loss and your streak will be at 0 regardless of the final outcome of that matchup. No exceptions will be made for any reason after you've forfeited (even if the team or player ends up winning the matchup) so think carefully before using this feature.

There is a STATUS ALERT (little yellow triangle on web and little diamond on the app with the "!" inside it) on some matchups that explains crucial details that pertain to the prop (located on the desktop page next to the Facebook share button and on the app next to the sport and start time at the top of each matchup box). Examples of such alerts include:

  • Start time is estimated and subject to change.
  • Both players MUST START or this matchup will be scored as a PUSH.
  • This matchup is currently in a RAIN DELAY. Please stay tuned for updates.
