Last Day to Enter Pros vs Joes Challenge!

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.

2016 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 2017 FFPC Main Event to each Pros vs Joes division winner, each valued at $1,750 per team for a total value of over $10,000 !!
The 2016 challenge will be limited to six (6) leagues, a total of 36 Joes and 36 Pros. 
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 seven years. That is a pretty good track record! Last year I finished 5th overall. 
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 were 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!!!

The entry fee for the FFPC Main Event 2016 is $1,875. However they have an early bird special extended through 31 May that brings the price down to $1,775. If you do an online draft the early pricing is $1,650 (vice $1,850 full price for an online team). 

Additional teams before the early bird deadline are $250 off so just $1625.

See you in Las Vegas! I am playing in the Saturday 7pm Main Event league!
