One week left on the Early Bird FFPC Entry Special and Chance at the Pros vs Joes Free Entry!

Each early bird entry into the Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) makes you eligible for a drawing to win an entry into the coveted Pros vs Joes Challenge!

What is the Pros vs Joes Challenge?

Take a group of hard core FFPC fantasy players (the Joes) and pit them against a contingent of fantasy industry experts (the Pros). The overall field is divided into separate divisions (leagues). Each division of 12 conducts their own draft. The format is FFPC Draft Experts, 28-round live drafts (optimized scoring, no lineup submission) that take place in late July. The highest scoring team after 16 weeks in each division wins that league. The one team which outscores all other across all divisions over 16 weeks is crowned the FFPC Pros vs Joes Champion.

2018 FFPC Pros vs Joes Challenge
FFPC Pros vs. Joes has become a true showcase event and that will continue again this year. The FFPC will once again give away six (6) entries into the 2019 FFPC Main Event to each Pros vs Joes division winner, each valued at $1,800 per team for a total value of over $10,000 !!
The 2018 challenge will be limited to six (6) leagues, a total of 36 Joes and 36 Pros. 

                         Division Winner Pros vs Joes 2012 and 2015
The Pros vs Joes Selection Process
The 36 Pros will be selected by the FFPC and FantasyMojo.com and invited into this competition.
I have been in the Pros vs Joes Challenge since the very beginning (starting in 2009). I have won my league twice in those nine years. That is a pretty good track record! 

In 2015 I finished 5th overall. Last year I finished middle of the road at 46th of 72. I love an all or nothing strategy in Draft Masters events!!!
Since there are just 36 Joes spots available, the FFPC had to come up with a way to fairly reward their customers and select participants. The 36 Joes are selected via a random drawing. But to be entered into the drawing you must be signed up for a FFPC Main Event team before the early bird deadline of 31 May!!!

All six of the Pros vs Joes Drafts will be broadcasted live on the High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour blog talk radio show. Participants from the Pros and Joes will be invited to appear live to discuss the ongoing drafts.

The draftboards will also be available for viewing live on http://YouTube.com/NFL

2018 Draft Schedule:
Draft #1 – Sunday July 22, 8:00 pm Eastern
Draft #2 – Monday July 23, 9:00 pm Eastern
Draft #3 – Tuesday July 24, 10:00 pm Eastern
Draft #4 – Sunday July 29, 8:00 pm Eastern
Draft #5 – Monday July 30, 9:00 pm Eastern
Draft #6 – Tuesday July 31, 10:00 pm Eastern

The entry fee for the FFPC Main Event 2018 is $1,925. However they have an early bird special through 31 May that brings the price down to $1,825. So $100 off your first team and $300 off your second team if register by 31 May.  If you do an online draft the early pricing is $1,700 (vice $1,800 full price for an online team). 

Additional teams before the early bird deadline are $300 off.

See you in Las Vegas!

FootballGuys Players Championship (FPC) is alive and well

The Footballguys Players Championship (FPC) is open and going strong in 2018.

The Grand Prize is $250,000 and over $2 Million in Prizes will be awarded in 2018!

The entry fee for this mid level stakes game is $350. But if you purchase three teams you can get in for $1000. 

Daily online drafts have started already!

One reason I like this contest is you can win free entry thanks to winning a FFPC $35 Draft Masters league and instead of taking the $300 in cash I can elect to receive an entry into the FPC ($350 value).

The rules and format are like the High Stakes Fantasy Football Players Championship.....

-2 Flex players
-PPR (1.5 PPR for TE)

What are you waiting for?
