The grand prize for a single winner depends on the number of entries, the winners bracket will receive 2/3 of the total entry fees while the losers bracket winner will receive the remaining third. The entry fee is still 17 peanuts per entry, 10 goes to the winners bracket, 5 goes to the losers bracket, and the remaining goes to the web host and transaction fees.
For this year there are 17 entries with 170 peanuts going to a single winner of the Winners bracket and 85 for a Losers bracket single winner.

Notes: The picks input range from last year will still apply this year, you will have until 3:00 A.M. ET Sunday morning to make your picks, there are two Saturday games in both Weeks 15 and 16. For Weeks 15 and 16 you will need to make your picks by noon ET on Saturday.
Weekly picks need
to be input by 3:00 A.M ET Sunday morning, this is before the games on Sunday
and Monday, this is NOT Sunday night or Monday morning, it is Sunday
morning. A special exception will be made for the Thanksgiving Day games
and other Thursday games that start in Week 1 in that you may only pick the
Thursday games before noon ET that Thursday. For the Saturday games picks must
be made by noon ET that Saturday. Make your picks early and avoid any possible
errors with your picks.
SPECIAL RULE CHANGE NOTE: With rules already in place last year for illegal picks whereby an entry would get a default pick, and with the Winners bracket winner taking the pool via an illegal pick, since by rule last year his default pick won, a change will be made starting in the 2006 pool.
No entry can win a bracket if an illegal pick was made and the default pick turns out to be a correct pick. To win a bracket you have to make your own legal pick. For instances where a default pick could potentially win a bracket, that pick cannot win and the pool will be extended another week. The entries that would have dropped out will be put back in, including the entry that made the illegal pick.
For the instance where an illegal pick was made in Week 17, the last week of the regualr season, then the winning peanuts will be split by the number of entries left or the playoffs will be used to break the tie if a simple majority votes to use the playoffs.

2017/12/16 - Congratulations to Val B1 and CPB1 and CPB2 for Winning the Winners bracket and they each get 57 peanuts. The Losers bracket still has five players left.
2017/12/25 - For those entries left in the Losers bracket after Week 17 please send an email to email@example.com indicating if you want to split the 85 peanuts or use the NFL Playoffs as a tiebreaker. Need at tleast half of the entries to vote for using the Playoffs as a tiebreaker.
For the NFL Playoffs each entry would pick the Winner of EACH game that weekend and the most correct Winners will advance to the next weekend until at least one entry has picked the most winners. Total points scored in the third round and then the Super Bowl will be used as additional tiebreakers if it gets that far.
Need your vote by 12/31/17 with a YES for using the NFL Playoffs and a NO if not.
