Update on FFPC Big Payback Leagues

In the Big Payback League #1 after seven weeks of play, Danny Mueller and Jay Reid's Lombardi Time is leading play with 19 victory points. In Week 7, Mueller's squad was led by Patrick Mahomes (32.15) and remains a single victory point over both Patrick Daly's Wall Street Warrior and Charlie George's Dream_Chasers.

Over in the Big Payback #2, Albert Chapman's Geckos is leading the other 11 teams with 24 victory points. Mahomes and Tyler Boyd's 29.5 were the stars for the Geckos in Week 7, as the squad is four VPs up on Chad Schroeder's Cocktails & Dreams, which finds itself in second place in this competition as well.

Looking at Big Payback #3, we see Biplab Mandal and John Terry have managed their entry to the top with 19 victory points, one VP ahead of both Michael Zucca's Mongooses and Michael Bronte's NEW SHERIFF. In this tightly packed league, four tams are within three victory points of taking charge of the standings.

Finally, in Big Payback #4, Bill and Don Ezzell's Mr. Bill leads all other squads with 24 victory points going into Week 8. They are ahead of both Schroeder's team and ABA LLC, collectively managed by Andrew and Arya Gharibian and Brandon Aminpour. The Ezzells were led by George Kittle (24.8) this past week.

The Big Payback leagues were held at Planet Hollywood at the 2021 FFPC Live Events in September. The champions in these leagues will pocket $25,000 at the end of the year, with $15,000 going to second and $5,000 to third after the top two regular season teams are awarded $5,000 for their efforts. Good luck to all the players the rest of the way!
