Several state regulations require Fantasy Football operators to classify highly-experienced or expert players so that they can be identified by beginners who may not wish to enter contests containing experts.
Starting with the 2017 fantasy season, Masters will categorize contestants who have reached "expert" status according to various state laws, so that beginners can be warned when entering contests with experts. You can note the expert symbol on your standings page for leagues you are currently competing in. Experts are denoted by the symbol of gold star.
The expert designation is displayed as a gold star on your league standings page throughout the contest.
By hovering over the symbol, you can display the names of experts who have entered the contest.
The requirements for "expert" designation differ from state to state, so to learn how experts are designated in your state, locate your state rules below:
