It was a pair of running backs in Week 16 that helped Ron Hacker’s squad to a 2016 Terminator title and a $10,000 grand prize. David Johnson (35.6) and Le’Veon Bell (28.7) did the heavy lifting as Hacker outlasted Vern Kovarik’s Celtics 650.07-626.07 in the final week of the contest’s Championship Round.
Kovarik is no stranger to the $3,500 second place prize in the terminator, as this was the third consecutive year he finished as the runner-up. Matt Bailey’s Iron Spike of Death took third place with its $2,000 purse while Jason Katt’s Village Idiots came up a half point behind him for $1,250 and fourth place.
Rounding out the top five was James Siple’s love ’til it Ertz, which cashed $750. Check out the top five finishers and their scores and prizes below:
- Excelsior II RonHacker 650.07 $10,000
- Celtics VernKov 626.07 $3,000

- Village Idiots jkatt 625.18 $1,250

Our hobby is under attack. States like Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri and Indiana have made it impossible for small fantasy operators like FFPC and others to function under the newly passed laws. We must fix these bad laws and make sure other states understand the needs of small businesses in this industry and the differences between DFS and SEASON-LONG. The SBFSTA has been and will continue fighting on all of our behalf to make sure our hobby isn’t taken away from us. Thank you for your support of the Playoff Challenge and the SBFSTA!

Test your general managerial skills and spend the next few months building a juggernaut. Enjoy fantasy football year round when you play dynasty with the FFPC now–the Home of High Stakes Dynasty Fantasy Football!
This is just a quick reminder that if you want to to play high stakes dynasty fantasy football, picking up one of these teams is your best bet to get involved. We don’t open new start-up dynasty leagues at the FFPC until all existing teams have been claimed, so jump in the action today.
A big misconception about these dynasty teams is that they are being sold because they are not competitive, which really is not the case most of the time. As we all know, sometimes life gets in the way of fantasy football, and sometimes the best choice is to sell your team rather than miss out on the fun of fully managing it.
Check out all the teams on the FFPC Message Boards at the threads below. You can see their entire rosters as well as what draft picks each team holds in 2017. In order to buy one, just send Dave an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he’ll let you know how you can take care of your deposit and entry fee for 2017.
The prices for each squad are listed next to the roster on the message board, but you can also make your best offer when you email Dave if you don’t want to take the team over at full price. Take a look at all of the FFPC Dynasty teams available now:
The title game in the Super Bracket’s Championship Round featured Lituchy’s 25th seed squad versus Singler’s 23rd seeded team in this 32-team tournament. To say it was a meeting of Cinderellas would be quite the understatement as both squads turned it on at the right time. Anything can happen in the Super Bracket, and it didn’t let us down from an entertainment standpoint this season once again. Thanks, to all 96 players that participated!
