Hope you enjoyed Week 1, players! This is a friendly reminder that all FFPC Main Event, Footballguys Players Championship, Classic, Victory Point, Dynasty and other managed leagues have waivers tonight, Wednesday, September 16th at 10 p.m. ET. A second weekly waiver period processes on Friday night at 10 p.m. 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.

Waivers Open on Sundays at 9 a.m.

Ditta on Top of Main Event

Hook'em--owned by Lou Ditta--is ahead of the other 2,519 teams in the 2020 FFPC Main Event after one week of play. Thanks to huge performances by Davante Adams (41.6), Calvin Ridley (33.9), Dallas Goedert (28.1), Raheem Mostert (25.1) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (24.9), Ditta got out ahead of the second-place Late nightz owned by Zach Toyo by a mere point-and-a-half.

Marc Davidson's Montezuma s Revenge placed in a tie for third after the opening week of games with a 210.7 score along with Fat Frankie Inc, managed by John Pierce. Rounding out the top five is Albert Chapman's Alternative Stats with an even 210.
