Waivers Run at 10pm ET Thursday

Waivers Run Tomorrow

As another short reminder, the four playoff teams in each league in the Main Event & FPC will have an opportunity to bid on players both Thursday (because of this afternoon's game) and Sunday again this week for the last time this season. After that, the waiver wire will lock until 2021. Bids will be processed and awarded at the normal times both Thursday and Sunday of this week. Time to empty out those FAAB budgets, all!

League Championships Start on Sunday

The FFPC Main Event and Footballguys Players Championship will hold their 12-team title games this coming weekend. Since the Championship Round will begin in Week 14, here is a quick refresher on how to still qualify if you have not already:

  • Any #3 or #4 seed that wins its league championship game will advance to the FFPC/FPC Championship Round in weeks 14-6.
  • All #1 and #2 seeds have already qualified for the Championship Round that begins in Week 14.
  • This is the final week of waivers for all playoff teams in both the FFPC Main Event and Footballguys Players Championship. Spend those dollars; you can't take them with you!
  • All playoff teams that do not make the Championship Round will go to the Consolation Round. Remember to continue to manage your teams and set lineups through Week 16.

Stat Changes Can Occur

The FFPC and FPC utilize the official stats provider for the NFL. This includes all stat changes that could be announced and finalized as late as Friday. So if you were involved in a close head-to-head match-up in your league semi-final game this past weekend, please remember that the results will not be final until Friday because of potential stat changes that could impact those match-ups. Make sure you set your lineup just in case!

Rob Vieyra & Chris Kennison on Pods

On the latest Rotoviz Radio‘s The High-Stakes Lowdown podcast, I sit down with Rob Vieyra, a longtime high stakes player whose career winnings have eclipsed over $200,000 and who has put numerous teams in the league playoffs in both the 2020 Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) Main Event and 2020 Footballguys Players Championship this year.
