    Although I suppose you can send a team at anytime, most people tend to do so about a week before the end of the calendar year. The pool is a January 1st to December 31st one. Also be prepared for your team to be vetted and for certain picks to be rejected due to a lack of fame, meaning you may be asked to resubmit the list with substitute picks. The deadline for entry is 7pm EST on December 31st, which would be midnight GMT. The pool's URL is: http://www.aodeadpool.org/ Rules about eligibility and on the requested format for submitting your list i.e. last name first, first name last, surnames in CAPS can be found here: http://www.aodeadpool.org/rules.html Any questions you have can be directed to aodeadpool@gmail.com The pool is currently run by Evan Hulka Hope that helps

    It appears to be a typo. The players who had him did receive 18 points but, you're right, it's written on the page as 13 points. Hadn't noticed that.
