Excited to be playing in 2017 FFPC Pros vs Joes Challenge

I am honored to have been selected to participate again this year as a Pro in the 2017 Pros vs Joes Contest sponsored by the FFPC. 
I have been in the Pros vs Joes Challenge since the very beginning (starting in 2009). I have won my league twice in those eight years. That is a pretty good track record! In 2015 I finished 5th overall. Don't ask about last year. I love an all or nothing strategy in Draft Masters events!!!

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 on 23 July thru 1 August with Sunday starts at 8p ET, Mondays at 9pm and Tuesdays at 10pm Eastern. Of course times may change until they are released by the FFPC and FantasyMojo who helps organize the event. 

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.

2017 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 again give away six (6) entries into the 2018 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 2017 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 and invited into this competition. Many have been selected and you can see them at this link:

Pros vs Joes (who are the Pros?)

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!!! Remember this for 2018!

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

The entry fee for the FFPC Main Event 2017 is $1,875.  If you do an online draft the price is $1,750 for an online team.
