Place Your Bids: Deadline is 10PM Tonight

Time to improve your rosters with potential difference-makers like Justice Hill (above). This is your friendly reminder that all FFPC Main Event, Footballguys Players Championship, Classic, Victory Point, Dynasty and other managed leagues have waivers tonight with a 10pm deadline, but a second weekly waiver period processes on Sunday morning at 10 am ET.

  • IMPORTANT: You can only get one player per bid group. Once you get a player in that group, all other bids are voided. If you want to get multiple players, you will need multiple bid groups and multiple players to drop.
  • If you have multiple teams, please handle bidding with a single team in a single browser for now.
  • Every team has $1,000 bidding dollars to spend. This needs to last for the entire season.
  • There are no $0 bids, so please bid $1 or more.

To place bids:

  • From the league home page, click on TEAM. You will see the Bid Groups section on your Set Lineup page.
  • You can click on the 'Create Bid Group' button on the Set Lineup page to create a new group. From there you simply need to 1) add the player(s) to the group, 2) specify the bid amount for each player, 3) select the players to drop and 4) click Save.
  • Bid groups can be copied and then edited as a new group.
  • Bid amounts can be edited quickly and easily.
  • Players are default sorted by previous season stats and can be sorted by position.
  • Don't forget to include a player to drop in every bidding group.

Find a Free Agent Feature on MyTeams Page:

If you are looking for a certain free agent, you can use the player search feature on the MyTeams page and it will tell you if he is rostered or not and who owns him. This is helpful for owners that have multiple teams and are looking for a priority free agent.

Schroeder Leads 2022 Pros Vs. Joes

One Joe sits atop all other comers so far in the 2022 FFPC Pros Vs. Joes competition. Chad Schroeder's Cocktails & Dreams tallied a 169.95 Week 3 score with Andrews, Joe Burrow's 25.75, Zay Jones' 24.5 and Rhamondre Stevenson's 20.1 doing the heavy lifting. Schroeder maintains a 26-point lead over second-place and Pro Josh Larky from The 33rd Team. Larky's fellow pros and Fighting Chance Fantasy's own Brian Drake and Dwain McFarland are in third place with FFPC Joe Jeff Gill's FISH entry 2.15 points behind them in fourth place overall. Another Pro--Fantasy Mojo's Darren Armani--has his team in fifth place at the moment.

Schroeder, Larky, Drake, McFarland and Gill all lead their individual leagues with FFPC Joes leading the other three. Daniel Osorio's SVFFC, Brian Harris and Jon Hurd and Christian Hellmer's E11even have the inside track of winning their big prize at the end of the season after three weeks of play.

Each one of the league winners will take home a free 2022 FFPC Main Event team at the season's end. Here is a look at the top-10 overall in this contest below:
