Terminator Tournament. An FFPC Exclusive.

Thomas Edison invented the light bulb? So what! The FFPC invented the Terminator format! And then we made it into a contest with a guaranteed $25,000 grand prize! This is truly a unique way to play fantasy football and we’re proud to call it an FFPC exclusive.

The Terminator concept was created in 2009 by Alex & Dave of the FFPC and it is actually quite simple. By adding just a few tweaks to the standard Best Ball format, it completely alters it and creates this brand new format that has proven to be exciting and challenging. Did one of your players get injured or is under performing? Terminate him!
