The NFL player opt-out deadline has come and gone, and with no one missing to shake up the top of FFPC draft boards, now's the time to draft if you haven't already. In fact, all of our formats (Footballguys, Main Event, dynasty, Terminator, best ball, best ball slims, Super Bracket, etc.) have seen an uptick in filled drafts over the last 24 hours, and we expect that to continue now that we know who's in and who's out.
As a reminder, the 2020 Footballguys Players Championship 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.
Here are all the details on this year's competition:
- Drafts are going off every day
- $3,100,000 prize pool (Up $800,000 from last year)
- Teams are $350 each (or a three-pack of teams for $1000)
You now have the opportunity to draft for your chance to win $500,000 every day until the start of the NFL season.
We already have numerous leagues filled, so if you want to hop in on one, check out the schedule below and click the link at the bottom to register:
