The FFPC Best Ball Tournament wraps up on THURSDAY, everyone. And we've made some significant changes this year. We've doubled the grand prize and prize pool and flattened out the prize structure. For just $125 per team, a maximum of 9,072 teams will battle for the $200,000 grand prize with a $1,094,000 prize pool. This tournament will use best ball slim rules (no kickers or defenses) with 20-round drafts, a 14-week regular season and single week elimination playoffs from weeks 15-17 before a champion is crowned at the end of week 17.
The 2022 FFPC Best Ball Tournament features competition without head-to-head matchups, any need to set lineups, or place waivers. Best Ball is “set-it and-forget-it”. The 20 players you draft is your roster for the entire season; weekly optimized scoring lineups are automatically started every week. Drafts are available daily in a Sit & Go (30-second clock), slow (two- and six-hour clocks) and scheduled live formats (60-second clock) with a total tourney capacity limited to 9,072 teams.
The main details of the tourney are listed below:
- Entry fee: $125 per team
- Contest capped at a maximum of 9,072 entries
- $200,000 Grand Prize
- $1,094,000 in guaranteed prizes

TONIGHT at 10:00 p.m. ET is your cutoff to get your free agent bids in for the first waiver wire run of the season for any Main Event, Footballguys, Classic and/or Victory Points league that concluded on or before yesterday.
The waivers will then process overnight, but the players will not show up on your roster until roughly five hours later at about 3 a.m. We scheduled this as not to overload our servers when we have so many live drafts still going on until a little after 2 a.m.
The next waiver wire run will be Sunday for all Main Event, Footballguys and classic satellite leagues that conclude on or before Sunday.
- The FFPC and Footballguys Players Championship offer two preseason blind bidding waiver runs.
- Waivers will close Wednesday, September 8th (TONIGHT) at 10 pm ET.
- The next waiver period will process on Sunday, September 11th.
- Bidding is open right now and closes just before 10 pm ET tonight.
Free agency pages may be accessed by logging into your account. Then on your MyTeams page, click on "Leagues", then "Team", then "Create Bid Group" (which is the white button in the middle of the page).
General FFPC Waiver Tips:
- You can only get one player per bid group. If you want multiple players, you need multiple bid groups and I suggest different drop players as well.
- To bid, go to your FFPC MyTeams page on MyFFPC.com. Then click the blue link to go to your league home page. Then go to the navigation link TEAM, then CREATE BID GROUP about 1/4 of the way down the page.
- Each team starts with $1,000 bidding dollars. Those $1,000 are all that a team gets for the entire season, so please bid wisely. Any bidding dollars spent tomorrow will count towards the season's total.
The next waiver wire run will be Sunday for all Main Event, Footballguys and classic satellites that conclude on or before Sunday, September 11th.
It's back, and better than ever! The FFPC's 2022 Terminator Tournament once again features a guaranteed $25,000 grand prize within a prize pool of nearly $120,000! This is truly a unique way to play fantasy football and we're proud to call it an FFPC exclusive.
The Terminator concept was created in 2009, and it's actually quite simple. By adding just a few tweaks to the standard Best Ball format, it completely alters it and creates this brand new format that has proven to be exciting and challenging. Did one of your players get injured or is under-performing? Terminate him!
Here are the FINAL options we have for this tournament:
|Terminator Tournament #48239||8 of 12||$350||TONIGHT 7:30pm ET|

There are no head-to-head matchups, no need to set lineups, no waivers or free agency. Best Ball is “set-it-and-forget-it”. The 20 players you draft is your roster for the entire season; weekly optimized scoring lineups are automatically started every week.
Superflex scoring allows for one quarterback to be started as a flex. Superflex quarterback passing scoring is one point per 25 yards and interceptions are minus (-) two points. The full details on the contest are below:

If you'd like to book your spot for the party, FFPC Live Event group host Greg Sidoris is the only person with tickets. If you book this event on any other website, Beer Park or any other site other than Greg, you are booking for the wrong party.

- $225 includes a $50 seat, $75 toward food and $100 toward beverage
- Breakfast: 9:30-11:30: Bagels, pastries, juice and fruit
- Lunch: 12-2 - Taco Station
- Lunch: 2-4 - Sliders

Every seat is the best in the house at Beer Park with more than 75 HDTVs. The open-air park has an atmosphere combining the feel of a classic baseball stadium and the communal charm of a city park; a nostalgic combination that evokes Americana charm. It’s ideal for watching football games and other sporting events, with towers on each side of the bar housing multiple high-definition televisions.
As a reminder, reserved seating is sold in advance only. No game day tickets will be sold. The $225 price is for Caesars Rewards card holders. Non-Caesars Rewards members would owe an extra $25.
