Gallucci & Gocken Win Off-The-Grid

One of the most exciting formats that we offer continues to be the FFPC Off-The-Grid Challenge. And it was really enjoyable for Take the Slap Off owners Rob Gallucci and Ryan Gocken who cashed $10,000 for winning the league and nearly $2,500 in weekly skins. Jamaal Williams’ 27.6, Alvin Kamara’s 26.5, Andrew Luck’s 26.15, Doug Baldwin’s 25.6, Davante Adams’ 24.1 and Chris Herndon’s 23.2 led the way as the Slap defeated Ed Haupt’s GDF 336.6-247.95 in the two-week final.

Haupt earned $4,000 for second as well as another $2400 for weekly skins. Placing third in the competition was Dave Bibo’s No White Flags who brought in $2,000 for its third-place efforts.

With players bidding real money on their draft slots as well as free agent acquisitions, the Off-The-Grid challenge continues to be one of the most fun and compelling leagues we run. We look forward to doing it all again next year when 11 challengers will try to defeat Gallucci and Gocken in their defense for the title.
