Liantonio & Ranaghan One Week From Regular Season Crowns

2022 Regular Season Ends This Monday

One of the most important weeks of the season is upon us, as the FFPC Main Event and the FPC hold their final regular season games. After Pittsburgh and Indianapolis complete their tilt on Monday Night Football this week, we're onto the league playoffs. Remember, the playoff seeds are determined by the following criteria:

  1. The team with the best record
  2. The remaining team with the highest point total
  3. The remaining team with the best record
  4. The remaining team with the highest point total

As you can see, points are huge this week. Teams with losing records could make the playoffs if they score enough points, so make sure you are finishing out your season strong. If you look at both contests, there are still a lot of teams in contention for a playoff spot heading into Week 11. And even if your squad doesn't move on to the playoffs, you will start accruing points for the Toilet Bowl competition beginning in Week 13.

As a reminder, you can see the Playoff bracket by clicking on the PLAYOFF tab on the league home page, next to the STANDINGS tab.

Dropped Players Will Be Locked

As a reminder, quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends that are cut beginning in the Week 11 free agent bidding processes will be REMOVED from the free agent pool and may not be re-acquired by any team for the remainder of the season. Dropped defenses and kickers will still be available for acquisition. This is done to minimize the possibility of potential collusion.

And as a reminder, even if injuries or other issues derailed your 2022 season, make sure you are still setting your lineups! Please don't anger the fantasy gods, and keep karma on your side for 2023 by being competitive this weekend for the rest of the year. :)

Liantonio Ascends To Main Event Lead

Amish Rake Fight Takes Control of Competition Over Lupo

It's now been back-to-back weeks in the 2022 FFPC Main Event with a brand new overall leader. Amish Rake Fight, owned by Giuseppe Liantonio, tallied a 186.6, thanks in part to Travis Kelce's 38.5, Jalen Hurts' 27.1 and George Kittle's 26.4. Liantonio now has a 19.1-point lead over Anthony Lupo's ACEHOLE in the chase for the $2,5000 regular season championship prize.

Rob Abbott--who you watched on the RotoViz High-Stakes Lowdown with yours truly last Tuesday--saw his RumHorse entry shoot up eight spots into third place while Jeff Antley's JMA 33 remained in the fourth spot. Last week's leader--John Pierce's Fat Frankie Inc--slipped four spots to round out this week's top five squads.

For a look at the top 20 teams in the Main Event, check out the list below:

Ranaghan Is the New Footballguys Leader

Finally dethroning John Rahilly's Out of Position from the top spot in the 2022 Footballguys Players Championship was Dr WHOa--run by Stephen Ranaghan, who you saw on a recent episode of the RotoViz High-Stakes Lowdown with me. Ranaghan's squad put up a 194.25 with Kelce, Patrick Mahomes (30.75), Joshua Palmer (30.6), Derrick Henry (25.4) and Chris Olave (21.2) doing the heavy lifting. 13.65 points is what separates Ranaghan from second-place Rahilly in the battle for the $3,000 regular season championship purse.

George Derzekos remained in third place for a second straight week with Brian Jurvelin going back to where he was after Week 9--fourth place. Gregg Baruch is the final member of the contest's top five teams this week as his theEllieLouCrew vaulted up three spots into fifth.

High Societies Are Hotly Contested

Todd and Taylor Bargstadt are doing quite well so far in the 2022 FFPC High Society #1 league with 36 total victory points heading into Week 12. Their Killer B's squad featured big performances last weekend from Justin Fields (25.15) and Olave that led to their 131.65 score.

Over in the 2022 FFPC High Society #2, William Spata and Deven Hammond lead a tightly bunched top of the leaderboard. Spata and Hammond were led by Davante Adams' 33.1, Amari Cooper's 31.3, Kittle and Henry en route to a 175.75 Week 11 score.

While Spata and Hammond are leading the league in scoring, their 30 victory points have them in a four way tie for the most in the competition along with David Hubbard and Billy Muzio's Bluffing Rivers, Kevin and Brad Brophy's OasisNeals and Brian Owens' No Mercy squads.

Both of these drafts were held live at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas at the FFPC Live Events in September. Each champion in these two 12-team leagues will pocket $50,000 at the end of the year.
