The Fantasy Football Players Championship (“FFPC”) is a fantasy football game of skill that offers guaranteed cash awards to its top entrants. This contest will test a participant’s ability to predict player performance both over time and on a weekly basis, as well as to value certain players and positions within the framework of our scoring system, place appropriate bids on free agents based on the relative future value to the entrant’s team, and create a balanced fantasy team that will maximize scoring output over the length of the season. FFPC award winners are determined based on the criteria listed in the Rules below.
FFPC Varsity Leagues consist of 12 teams and is based on a 17-week total points format. There are no H2H matchups in the Varsity League. There are no league playoffs in this format. Weekly starting lineups must be submitted by each team. Free agent pickups by way of blind bidding are available for all teams during the regular season in Weeks 1-17.

The Varsity League will consist of a 17-week regular season which will run from NFL Week 1 through NFL Week 17. There are no league playoffs in this format.

All FFPC Varsity Drafts – both Live (fast) & Slow – will be held Online via the internet at various times and dates. All drafts will last for 20 rounds), with each team selecting one player per round. Drafts will be held in a serpentine format: Team 1 through Team 12 in Round 1, Team 12 through Team 1 in Round 2, Team 1 through Team 12 in Round 3, etc. Teams may select any player that is not already drafted by another team. There are no limits as to the number of players drafted at each position. For the live drafts, each team participant/manager will have thirty seconds (30 seconds) or one minute (60 seconds) to make a player selection in each round. If the team manager does not make a selection within the allotted time frame this team will be assigned a player according to the draft software’s auto-pick computer. The draft software will then place this team’s draft on auto-pick. The owner may unselect this feature with a simple click of the mouse and continue drafting in the normal manner.
Sit & Go Drafts have a 30-second clock per pick with drafts which begin as soon as the 12th team registers, regardless of time of day or night. Players will be able to exit Sit & Go Drafts at any point prior to the draft filling using the EXIT LEAGUE buttons found on the league home page or the FFPC apps. Drafts will begin within 2 minutes of the 12th team registering, regardless if all teams are present or not. Players understand that if they are not present for a Sit & Go draft, it will not be paused or restarted. Entry fees will not be refunded for a missed draft. It is highly recommended that players download the FFPC iOS or Android apps for use during Sit & Go drafts.
FFPC slow drafts are available with a 2 hour or 6 hour clock (timer per pick). There will also be a pause between the hours of 2 AM and 8 AM ET (11 PM and 5 AM PT) to protect teams from missing a pick during nighttime hours. Teams may make picks during the pause when it is their turn. All other Draft room functionality, like adjusting players in Queue and turning on/off Autodraft, will be available during the pause.
A team set to Autodraft will have picks made during the pause when this team is on the clock. Once a pick is made, the next team will be on the clock, but the timer will not run until the draft is un-paused.
Example 1 (Slow draft with a 2 hour clock): A team goes on the clock at 12:30 AM ET, draft clock pauses with 30 minutes remaining at 2 AM ET. The clock will stay paused until 8 AM ET, at which time the clock will continue rolling with the remaining 30 minutes. An auto pick will be made at 8:30 AM ET if the team fails to make a selection.
Example 2 (Slow draft with a 2 hour clock): A team goes on the clock at 12:30 AM ET, the clock pauses with 30 minutes remaining at 2 AM ET. The team makes a selection at 5 AM ET. The following team is now on the clock, with the clock still paused. The clock will start to run at 8 AM ET so this team will have until 10 AM ET to make a selection.
Example 3 (Slow draft with a 2 hour clock): A team goes on the clock at 12:30 AM ET, the clock pauses with 30 minutes remaining at 2 AM ET. The team makes a selection at 5 AM ET. The following team had autodraft functionality on, so this pick is made. The following team is now on the clock, with the clock still paused. The clock will start to run at 8 AM ET so this team will have until 10 AM ET to make a selection.
All examples above apply similarly to slow drafts with a 6 hour clock.
If the team manager does not make a selection within the allotted time frame and does not alert the commissioner to internet or computer problems, this team will be assigned a player according to the team’s Queue (if populated), the team’s rankings, or the draft software’s autodraft settings. The culpable team may subsequently be placed on autodraft for the rest of the draft. The owner may unselect this feature upon returning to the draft room with a simple click of the mouse and may continue drafting in normal manner.
FFPC draft facilitators (aka FFPC Commissioners) oversee most online drafts and have the ability to stop, rewind a draft and change draft picks. Draft facilitators have discretion to rule on any discrepancy involving player selection. This may happen on occasion, as a result of various circumstance which may come up during the draft. All rulings by the FFPC facilitators are final.
All $35 Live Online drafts do not have a live commissioner observing the draft room. After registering, please ensure you are on time to the draft and keep players in your draft queue in case you have connections issues. This draft will not be stopped or paused and draft picks will not be reversed.
Trading between teams of any kind, including but not limited to, draft picks or players is strictly prohibited.

FFPC Scoring, Lineup Submission and Position Designation
The starting lineups will consist of: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 2 Flex Players (RB, WR or TE), 1 PK. 1 Team Defense/Special Team. Starting lineups may be submitted on the FFPC league management page. The deadline for lineup submission for each player via web site or email is the scheduled start time of the game in which the player is participating. Lineup changes which are submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org must be sent and have a time stamp prior to the start time of the game in question. Lineup changes which are made by phone to our 24-hour emergency message center at 1-888-898-FFPC must be called in no later than 15 minutes prior to kickoff. The following must be provided for a valid email or phone transaction: League number & team name, login name and password, name of player(s) to be placed in the starting lineup, name of player(s) to be removed from the starting lineup.
Player position eligibility and designation is determined by FFPC during the pre-season and may be changed any time by FFPC before the start of the NFL season. FFPC participants agree to accept these designations and understand the final position designations may be different from the time their FFPC drafts were conducted.
The following is the scoring system used for every player in FFPC. Scoring will be calculated to the hundredth of a point. Negative yardage will be counted as a negative score:
- 0.05 point – 1 yard passing (multiply total passing yards by 0.05. Example: 275 passing yards = 13.75 fantasy points)
- 4 points – Passing TD
- -1 point – Interception thrown
- -1 point - Fumble Lost
- 2 points – 2-point conversion
- 0.1 point – 1 yard rushing (multiply total rushing yards by 0.1. Example 126 rushing yards= 12.6 fantasy points)
- 6 points – Rushing TD
- -1 point - Fumble Lost
- 2 points – 2-point conversion
- 0.1 point – 1 yard receiving (multiply total receiving yards by 0.1. Example 126 receiving yards= 12.6 fantasy points)
- 6 points – Receiving TD
- 1 point – Reception for RB, WR, QB, K
- 1.5 points – Reception for TEs
- -1 point - Fumble Lost
- 2 points – 2-point conversion
- 1 point – Made PAT
- 3 points – Made FG of 1 – 30 yards plus 0.1 point for every yard thereafter.
Example: a 45-yard FG would be worth 4.5 points
Team Defense/Special Teams
- 1 point – Every sack
- 2 points - Every blocked punt or field goal
- 2 points – Every team takeaway (interception or fumble recovery)***
- 6 points – Every TD (via interception return, fumble return, punt or kickoff return, blocked FG return, missed FG return, blocked punt return)***
- 2 points for every return after a blocked/failed extra point or failed two-point try (i.e. on an interception or fumble). [As per new NFL rules for 2015 season]
- 5 points – Every safety
- 12 points – Every shutout **
- 8 points – Allowing between 1- 6 points **
- 5 points – Allowing between 7 – 10 points **
** Any points scored against a team counts towards their defensive points allowed, whether the scoring came by an offensive, defensive or special team score.
FFPC implements Action scoring for all touchdowns. A TD scored in any way by an individual player is awarded to that player whether he is on offense, defense or special teams, whether that TD came as a result of a fumble, interception, double turnover***, lateral, special teams or any other football play. To reiterate: If a player scores a TD during a game and he is in your starting roster, you are awarded 6 points. (The exception is when a quarterback throws a passing touchdown. Those are awarded as 4 points.) Please note that this scoring is separate and unrelated from any points which Team Defense/Special Teams may also receive for this TD.
No rushing or receiving yards will be awarded for a TD scored on a fumble, interception, kickoff or punt return.
Touchdowns scored by the offensive team as a result of Fake FG, Fake Punt, Blocked FG or Blocked Punt do not count as Defensive/Special Teams scoring.
*** A double-turnover is when the Offense turns the ball over to the opposing Defense, which subsequently turns the ball over back to the Offense. In this case, neither the Offense’s ball recovery nor any subsequent TD scoring on that particular play are scored as Defensive/Special Team scoring for that team. Defensive team fantasy points for touchdowns, fumble recoveries and interceptions are ONLY scored when the defensive unit is on the field.
*** A fumble by an offensive player through the opposing end zone resulting in a touch-back is not considered a team takeaway and will not award 2 fantasy points for the Team Defense/Special Teams.
Varsity League Free Agency Acquisitions and Blind Bidding:
The following free agent blind bidding process is the only means by which free agents may be acquired in the FFPC. There are no other ways to acquire free agents like ‘worst-to-first’ and ‘first-come-first-served’ or any other waiver methods other than blind bidding as described below.
Any active NFL player which is not on a roster in the individual league is considered a free agent for that league and may be available for pick-up. Players dropped by a team are placed into the free agent player pool and will be available for pick-up (see below for exclusions).
The free agent acquisition process is made by way of “blind bidding”. Each team will be given $1000 blind bidding “dollars” (not real money, just bidding dollars) to be used for the entire season. IMPORTANT: once these bidding dollars are used up, you will no longer have the ability to pick up free agents. Bids will remain hidden from the rest of the league until after all the winning bids have been awarded. Free agent players will be awarded to the team with the highest bid for that free agent, and the winning bid amount will be deducted from that team’s free agent dollars. Besides the winning bid, all other bids for that free agent are considered losing bids and are cancelled. At this point, the highest remaining bid by any team for any remaining free agent will be considered. The team with this winning bid will be awarded the free agent and all losing bids for that free agent will be cancelled. This process will continue until every remaining bid has been considered.
There are two (2) weekly blind bidding processes. The first “Primary” blind bidding process will take place on Wednesday with the second “Supplementary” process taking place on Sunday.
The deadline for bid submission for Wednesday is 10:00 PM ET and Sunday is 10:00 AM ET.
All free agent NFL players will be available for the Wednesday bidding process.
NFL players which are dropped during Wednesday’s bidding process will NOT be available for pickups on Sunday (of the same week) and will ONLY become available for next week’s Wednesday bidding process.
Free agent NFL players whose teams played on Thursday will NOT be available for pickups on Sunday (of the same week) and will ONLY become available for next week’s Wednesday bidding process.
The blind bidding process will be available beginning Week 1 and end prior to Week 17.
Bids will be allowed to be entered from Sunday at 12:00 PM ET until Wednesday 10:00 PM ET for Wednesday’s bidding process. Bid will be allowed to be entered from Wednesday at 11:00 PM ET until Sunday 10:00 AM ET for Sunday's bidding process.
All bids will be processed and the rosters updated with the results of all successful bids after 10:00 PM ET on Wednesday & 10:00 PM ET on Sunday, following the completion of the blind bidding process.
All team managers are strongly encouraged to place their bids as early in the week as possible.
QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs which are cut during Week 11 through Week 17 free agent bidding processes will be REMOVED from the free agent pool and may not be re-acquired by any team for the remainder of the season. This is done to minimize the possibility of potential collusion.
Kickers and Team Defenses cut during Weeks 11 through Week 17 free agent bidding processes WILL REMAIN in the free agent pool and will be available to be re-acquired by teams as long as the free agency bidding processes remain open.
FFPC Commissioners and FFPC, LLC. reserve the right to remove a dropped player from the free agent pool or reinstate that player back to its original team, if FFPC Commissioners and FFPC, LLC. determine that doing so is the interest of upholding the integrity of the contest, or that the dropped player would unfairly impact the outcome of the FFPC, or to correct an error.· In this rare instance, all participants will be notified and an explanation will be given.
In the event that there is a tie between bids, the team which is awarded the player will be determined in order by:
- Worst total points.
- Worst won/lost record**.
- Worst previous week score.
- Loser of head-to-head match-up, if applicable.
- Virtual coin toss.
**Won/lost record is based on the standings at the time of blind bidding process, which may change from Wednesday’s to Sunday's bidding processes based on stat changes issued by Elias and NFL.
Bids shall be placed individually, or in groups, with conditional bids following the primary bid. The top bid is the primary bid in a bidding group. The bids underneath are conditional bids. If you lose the primary bid, the first conditional bid directly below will be considered next. If you lose the primary and the first conditional bid, then the second conditional bid will be considered, etc. The rest of your bidding groups will be processed in the same manner. A maximum of one player can be won in each bidding group. Bids within a group may have different designated drop players. It’s important to remember when placing multiple free agent bids that you cannot win two players if they both have the same drop player. You may not place different bid amount on the same player. In this case, only the highest dollar bid will be considered.
Dollar amounts will determine the preference of bids. Example: conditional bid #3 cannot be a higher dollar amount than the primary bid or #2 bid.
Teams may submit as many bids as they like. There are no limitations as to the number of players that may be acquired by any one team during the course of the weekly blind bidding processes or during the course of the year, provided teams remain within the maximum number of 20 players allowed on each roster.
When placing a bid, please use separate dollar amounts or the primary and contingency bid software to ensure differentiation between the bidding groups.
Teams will no longer have the ability to acquire or bid on free agents once their initial 1,000 free agent “dollars” have been spent. All bids must be in increments of dollars, with no cents. The minimum bid amount is $1.
Bids may only be accepted on each individual FFPC league pages, on the league management pages. No bids will be accepted by telephone, email, message boards or any via any other form. In the event that the league management website is not able to accept bids, team managers are instructed to go to www.MyFFPC.com, call the 24-hour emergency message center at 1-888-898-3372 or email email@example.com for further instructions.
Varsity League and Playoff Structure:
The 17-week regular season will run from NFL Week 1 through NFL Week 17. Over the course of the regular season, each of the 12 teams will try to accumulate as many points as possible on a weekly basis. At the conclusion of Week 17, the three teams which have accumulated the most combined points during weeks 1-17 will win league prizes. All references to “points”, “total points” or “points total” implies starting lineup points.
There is no playoff in the Varsity League.
The draft is conducted in the ‘live draft’ room found on the league pages. It is strongly recommended that each participant check in a few hours before the draft and familiarize themselves with the draft software. The draft will be conducted in a serpentine method starting the first round with Team 1, proceeding through Team 12; the second round will start with Team 12 and will proceed through Team 1; the third round will begin with Team 1 and end with Team 12, etc. until all 20 rounds have been completed. This will result in a 20 player roster. Most drafts last approximately 1.5 hours, however, participants should allow for 2 hours or more.
IMPORTANT: The draft room software will require each team to draft a starting lineup of 1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, 2-FLEX, 1-K, 1-D. As an example, if you do not have a kicker in the final round of the draft, the software will not allow you to draft another position and you will be required to draft a kicker.
Online Draft Commissioner
Each online draft will have a live draft commissioner to watch over the draft and assist as needed. The commissioner will provide his or her contact phone number at the beginning of the draft. Each participant must write the phone number and keep it nearby in case of an emergency. If a participant has an issue or gets disconnected for a few minutes, please call the commissioner. The draft commissioner will act in the fairest way possible to ensure that no one gets passed over due to computer issues. If a participant’s computer is down for an extended period of time and they do not call in to the commissioner, the commissioner will be forced to continue the draft by having a surrogate take over the draft for that team or place that team on auto-pick.
Online Draft Attendance
Draft attendance is mandatory. Please contact the FFPC should you expect to be late for the draft. Participants must log into their league and sign into the online draft no later than five minutes prior to the draft start time. In the event that the participant (or co-manager) does not sign in to the online draft, a surrogate drafter may make selections for the team in question or the team may be placed on auto-pick. If a participant signs into the online draft after the draft has started, he will be able to select his next player; however, if any previous surrogate selections have been made, they would still apply. Check your connections in advance of the draft. If you cannot gain access to the draft, you will need to arrange another method to access the draft. The FFPC is not responsible for connection issues, and will not issue a refund.
Varsity leagues times and dates will vary. All event times and schedules will be posted on the FFPC website.

The FFPC Varsity League season begins with the start of NFL Week 1 games and ends with the conclusion of Week 17 games, which is the first 17 weeks of the NFL regular season. If the NFL changes its season for any reason, FFPC, LLC. reserves the right to amend its FFPC league structure accordingly. Any regular season NFL games that take place prior to the FFPC Varsity drafts WILL count towards Week 1 point scoring in the FFPC regular season. If the NFL plays any games with replacement players during a formal league strike or lockout, statistics from those games shall not count for the purposes of this competition.
FFPC, LLC. uses its league management service to handle scheduling, blind bidding, transactions, win-loss records, etc. FFPC uses game statistics provided by SportRadar data feed which will be our basis for scoring. Elias Sports Bureau will often have minor scoring changes during the season. FFPC will automatically have the league management software make stat changes as they occur.
