Muto, Ondrus & Martirossian Close in On Points Titles

Muto a Week Away From Title

Cobras Close To Main Event Regular Season Championship

Heading into Week 11 of the 2020 FFPC Main Event, Henry Muto's Cobras widened their lead over the Minnestoa Football Team, run by John Tenley, but not by much. Tallying a 151.35 thanks to Alvin Kamara (34.8), Kyler Murray (33.35), and D'Andre Swift (25.9), Muto is just one week shy of winning the $2,500 regular season points leader prize.

Mike Manchester's Do It That Way moved up one spot to third, but still nearly 30 points out of first place. EmporioAmato, managed by Daniel Amato, also rose one spot into fourth place with Darren Hill's Country Gramma slipping to fifth place.

Revolution Back on Top in Footballguys

Josh Falcone's reign atop of the 2020 Footballguys Players Championship, with his doubledown squad was short-lived as he slipped one spot to second place in Week 10. Regaining the lead and one week away from the $3,000 regular season prize is once again Sal's Spaghetti Revolution, owned by Chris Ondrus and Allen Martisrossian. Led by Kamara and Murray, the duo now holds a slim, 4.6-point lead over second-place Falcone.

Dr. Strange's Odds just got a lot better this week as Hudson Reeve watched his squad slide up 13 spots to third with former FFPC Main Event champion David Hubbard ascending three spots to fourth with his Triple H Team of Genius entry. Rounding out the top five is last year's World Famous FFPC Playoff Challenge champion Austin Martin as his See What Happens team vaulted up five spots to fifth.

Regular Season Ends Monday

One of the most important weeks of the season is upon us, as the FFPC Main Event and the FPC hold our final regular season games. After the Rams and Buccaneers 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 12.

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 Are Locked

As a reminder, quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends that are cut during Week 10, Week 11 and Week 12 free agent bidding processes are now 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 2020 season, make sure you are still setting your lineups! Please don't anger the fantasy gods, and keep karma on your side for 2021 by being competitive this weekend for the rest of the season. :)

See Ya in Week 12: 4 Teams on Bye

The receiving yardage leader Stefon Diggs bids you adieu this week as his Bills will get the bye week treatment. Joining Buffalo are Chicago, the New York Giants and San Francisco, who will all get the week off. You'll be able to get replacements for them either from your bench or in the waiver wire runs tonight and Sunday morning.

Gaché Still Atop Big Payback

Raider Nation--owned by Ron Gaché--now has a commanding lead in the FFPC Big Payback League heading into Week 11. His 32 victory points put him 9 ahead of the next closest team, which happens to be run by John Modaff and Tommy Zoretic. Their Chi Town squad has 23 VPs, good enough for first place in their division.

Raider Nation scored 120.2 Week 10 points with Josh Jacobs (29.6) and Davante Adams (20.6) the leading scorers. The squad now holds a 60+ point lead over @CrakRok, managed by Greg Kanter, for the most total points scored in the competition this season.

The champion in this league will pocket $25,000 at the end of the year. Good luck to all the players the rest of the way!
