The FFPC Best Ball Tournament is back! 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
- 20-Round Best Ball Slim Format
- 2-hour, 6-hour, 30-second and 60-second draft options available
- Drafts launch on May 1st
