The speculation is over as the NFL made a 17-game regular season a reality yesterday with this announcement. Certainly awesome stuff for fantasy football players, as they will get an extra week of fun this year (and probably beyond as well)!
Some of you have already asked about how this will affect the FFPC's schedule for the different options we currently offer. I can tell you right now that all FFPC formats will have one more week in their regular seasons this year than they did a year ago. And best ball leagues will now have 17 weeks of play instead of 16. Rules are being edited shortly to reflect the specific formats.
Perhaps it was the news yesterday, but we saw a bump in the number of leagues that have gone off after filling in the last 24 hours. You, too, can join in the fun now with Redraft Best Ball slow draft leagues at entry fees of $5, $35, $77 and $250 open for entry. And don't forget that the 2021 rookie class is included in the draft pool as well.
Slow drafts are filling and launching as soon as they are full (and we have live drafts scheduled each night, too), so you can be drafting in minutes. Drafts with two-hour and six-hour clocks are available. And be sure to download the FFPC iOS and Android apps for a more streamlined draft experience. The links are below:
All of you that love Spring drafting can hop in now and draft an FFPC Best Ball team today!

On the latest Rotoviz Radio‘s The High-Stakes Lowdown podcast coming out tomorrow morning, I wax poetic with Ted Rokas, the FFPC $1250 Dynasty League #7 champion for 2020. In this episode, we find out his thoughts on shopping Alvin Kamara, where O.J. Howard's dynasty stock stands, the changing value of Terry McLaurin and more.
