A Fantasy Sports Insurance policy for one player is available FREE to each team owner who pays by check or money order for the NFBC Main Event, the NFBC Auction Championship and the NFBC Online Championship Plus provided that your payment is received by the due date. This insurance policy is courtesy of the NFBC and FantasySportsInsurance.com.
Here's how Fantasy Sports Insurance (FSI) works:
Designate one player who is on your team and on the Top 100 list provided by FantasySportsInsurance.com for your insurance policy. If that player spends at least 60 days on the disabled list due to an injury in 2016, you will receive payment from FantasySportsInsurance.com for:
|NFBC Main Event||$320|
|NFBC Auction Championship||$240|
Last year when this offer was in place for the NFBC, team owners were able to cash in their insurance policies for the following players:
After you have selected the player who you want to insure, FSI will send out a Certificate of Insurance with details of the insurance policy and the associated coverage. Claims will be paid within 60 days of the end of the MLB regular season.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to work alongside NFBC to offer Fantasy Sports Insurance (FSI) for the 2016 MLB fantasy season," said Henry Olszewski, sales, executive at Fantasy Sports Insurance. "Offering FSI to NFBC participants is a fantastic opportunity for us to provide financial peace of mind against that unforeseen, season changing injury. Lessen the blow of losing your key player. Plan...Protect...Play"
NFBC team owners also will have the opportunity to purchase additional insurance for their teams' players through FantasySportsInsurance.com if they draft more than just one injury-riddled player. For those owners, there is a policy for two players who spend a total of 90 days on the DL list and even a policy for three players who spend a total of 115 days on the DL.
