Championship Round (Weeks 14-16)
First place is now $100,000 and the first 130 teams win prizes!
FPC is comprised of 12 team leagues with 20 roster spots.League Playoffs are Weeks 12 & 13.
Draft format is classic serpentine: 1-12, 12-1, 1-12, etc.
Regular season is Weeks 1-11.
Championship Round and Consolation Round are Weeks 14-16.
League Playoffs: At the end of the regular season, the two top seeds from each league each earn an automatic berth into the Championship Round, regardless of how they perform in the League Playoffs. The four top seeds (including the two above) from each league will compete in the 2-week, head-to-head League Playoff in Weeks 12 & 13. The winners of the Week 12 match-ups will play each other in Week 13 for the League Championship. The League Champion and runner up will win cash awards as described in the prize structure.
Championship Round: In addition to the cash awards, each League Champion will win a berth in the Championship Round, if they have not already secured an automatic berth after the regular season. In other words, if Seed 3 or Seed 4 wins the League Championship, that team will also move on to the Championship Round along with Seeds 1 & 2. A minimum of two and a maximum of three teams per league will qualify for the Championship Round. Any League Playoff team which did not qualify into the Championship Round will enter the Consolation Round. In addition, any team which did not qualify for the League Playoffs but finished in the top 20% of the FPC Overall Leaderboard at the conclusion of Week 11 will qualify for the Consolation Round (i.e. based on 1200 teams, the top 240 teams are considered as the top 20%). All teams which did not qualify for the League Playoffs will enter the Toilet Bowl in Weeks 12-16.
Free Agents: The Free Agent process is via blind bidding. Each team will be given 1000 blind bidding "dollars".
Roster/Scoring: The FPC starting lineup allows for two (2) flex positions, also known as the Dual-Flex. The scoring system gives 1 point per reception for RBs & WRs but also gives 1.5 points per reception for TEs, putting extra weight to the TE position. Action scoring is implemented for all TDs: any TD scored by a player is scored as 6 points to that individual player, in addition to any D/ST scoring that may apply. Stat errors will be automatically corrected using Elias Sports Bureau. The deadline for lineup submission for each player via web site or email is the scheduled start time of the game in which the player is participating.
Starting Roster: 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 flex players (RB/WR/TE), 1 K, 1 D/ST
-4 points for passing TDs, 6 points for all other TDs
-0.05 point for every 1 yard passing
-0.1 point for every 1 yard rushing or receiving
-1.0 point per reception for RBs and WRs
-1.5 points per reception for TEs
-3 points for every FG of 1 - 30 yards plus 0.1 point for every yard thereafter
-1 point for D/ST sack, 2 points for all turnovers
-6 points for all D/ST touchdowns
-5 points for every safety
-12 points for every shutout
-8 points for allowing between 1 - 6 points
