The pace as to which the 2020 Footballguys Players Championship varies. Right now, it is picking up a lot of steam with availability in the competition getting smaller by the day. This contest features a guaranteed prize pool with a $500,000 grand prize and over $3,000,000 million total prize pool. That's right--we've doubled the grand prize to $500,000! The 2020 FPC contest is capped at 10,800 teams. All prizes are fully guaranteed.
Here are all the details on this year's competition:
- Drafts going off daily
- $3,100,000 prize pool (Up $800,000 from last year)
- Teams are $350 each (or a three-pack of teams for $1000--save $50!)
Remember, you now have the opportunity to draft to win $500,000 every day from now until the start of the NFL season.Another new feature we rolled out is that switching or leaving drafts both in the FPC and the rest of our FFPC drafts just became a whole lot more user-friendly. If you need to bounce out of a league, you won’t need to send an email to us anymore. All you have to do is click on the “EXIT LEAGUE” button on the league homepage. You then will remove yourself instantly as long as it is not less than 15 minutes before the start of your draft and fewer than 10 teams are registered.
We already have numerous leagues filled, so if you want to join, check out the schedule posted here, including afternoon drafts today:

On the latest Rotoviz Radio‘s The High-Stakes Lowdown podcast, I spoke with Jimmy Wagner who is a seven-time winner in the FFPC Main Event and Footballguys Players Championship. His total career winnings in the FFPC total nearly $50,000. In this episode, we broke down how his FFPC Pros Vs. Joes team turned out, why he’s on board with DeVante Parker, who the sleeper wide-out on the Texans is, how to attack the value in the Chargers backfield and much more.

The 2020 FFPC Terminator Tournament is already off and running with a guaranteed $25,000 grand prize! This is truly a unique way to play fantasy football and we’re proud to call it an FFPC exclusive, especially since it now has a $116,000 prize pool as well. The Terminator concept was created in 2009, and it is actually quite simple. By adding just a few tweaks to the standard Best Ball format, it completely alters it and creates this brand new structure that has proven to be exciting and challenging. Did one of your players get injured or is under-performing? Terminate him!
