Empire Superflex Best Ball Dynasty Leagues

An FFPC Empire League is a dynasty league with a large progressive prize pool that grows yearly and is only awarded once there is a back-to-back winner. When that happens, the back-to-back champion wins the Empire Prize Pool, and the league disbands.

Everything you love about Empire combined with everything you love about best ball.

The FFPC Best Ball Superflex Empire format is a semi-managed format, with optimized weekly lineups, weekly waivers, trading, but with no head-to-head play and no playoffs. The highest optimized weekly scores after 17 weeks wins.

Superflex allows the use of the QB at the Flex position. A few other small differences as well:

  • QB can be used as a Flex, but only for 1 Flex position. The 2nd Flex can be RB, WR or TE.
  • Superflex QB passing scoring is 25 yards = 1 point. Interception are minus two points (-2).
  • Superflex Best Ball Dynasty leagues do not have limitations on QBs drafted or rostered.

Starting at just $100, there is a league for everyone.
