The 2021/22 FFPC Playoff Challenge and 20 Team Leagues will have 12 starting roster spots rather than the 10 starting roster spots in a typical FFPC starting lineup. The two added starting roster spots will both be FLEX spots (Flex can be RB, WR or TE). This change has been made to account for the two additional NFL Playoff teams for the 2020/21 NFL season. With fourteen total playoff teams and 12 starting roster spots, each entrant will need to fade two teams, which has always been the case for the FFPC Playoff Challenge. This change is only for the current season, unless the NFL decides to make the fourteen team playoff permanent. As always, only one player may be picked per playoff team.
