Get Ready For the Draft-A-Thon

The 2020 Footballguys Players Championship continues to fill up faster than normal, players--don't miss out! We have drafts launching as late as a 12:30 am contest tonight.) This competition features a guaranteed prize pool with a $500,000 grand prize and over $3,000,000 million total prize pool. That's right--we've doubled the grand prize to $500,000! The 2020 FPC contest is capped at 10,800 teams. All prizes are fully guaranteed. And remember our 2020 Draft-A-Thon launches tomorrow. I'll be back with you in the morning to announce the details.

Here is everything to know about this year's competition:

  • Drafts going off daily
  • $3,100,000 prize pool (Up $800,000 from last year)
  • Teams are $350 each (or a three-pack of teams for $1000)

Another new feature we just rolled out is that switching or leaving drafts both in the FPC and the rest of our FFPC drafts just became a whole lot more user-friendly. If you need to bounce out of a league, you won’t need to send an email to us anymore. All you have to do is click on the “EXIT LEAGUE” button on the league homepage. You then will remove yourself instantly as long as it is not less than 15 minutes before the start of your draft and fewer than 10 teams are registered.

We have numerous leagues filling up every day, so if you want to join, check out the schedule posted here, including afternoon drafts today:

1st Waiver Wire Is Tomorrow

Friday night 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 Footballguys, Classic and/or Victory Points league that concludes on or before tomorrow. 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 next Wednesday, September 9th for all Footballguys and classic satellite leagues that conclude on or before next Tuesday the 8th. As a friendly reminder for all online Main Event drafts this weekend, your first waiver wire run will be this Wednesday.

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).
