Four Teams on Bye in Week 6

If you have any Bills, Colts, Raiders or Bears, get them out of your lineups this weekend players, as the first four-team bye week has hit the fantasy schedule. Use waivers or your bench to plug those lineup holes!

 

Darth Tater in 1st in Bare Knuckles

Sean and Scott Bosely’s Darth Tater entry ran up a 202.35 score this past weekend in the 2019 FFPC Bare Knuckle Challenge, and now hold a 13-point lead over the second-place Esquires entry, owned by Bo Berman. The Boselys saw Kyler Murray’s 27.95 lead the way, but also received big games from Matt Breida (27.9), Kupp and Gerald Everett (24.1).

This draft took place live after the opening game in Las Vegas on Thursday night at Planet Hollywood. Players were not allowed to use any device, cheat sheets or any other draft aid as all 336 picks needed to be selected strictly from memory. The champ will take home a $4,500 prize in this 12-team league.

2019 Big Payback Leagues Update

Over in the $5,000 entry Big Payback leagues, we have No Mercy, owned by Brian Owens, leading Big Payback #1 so far. In addition to McCaffrey, it was Aaron Rodgers’ 32.7, Leonard Fournette’s 26.5 and the New England defense’s 24 helping Owens to a Week 4 164.1 score and the lead in the league.

Jack Haan’s Wyld Stallyns are leading the way over in Big Payback #2 thanks in part to a 196.65 in Week 4. Chris Godwin (41.2), McCaffrey, Lamar Jackson (28.95), the Patriots D and Darrel Williams crushed it last weekend for Haan as he enjoys sitting in first going into Thursday’s game.

And in Big Payback #3, it’s TBD that sits atop the other 11 owners at the quarter pole of the NFL season. Jackson and Jarvis Landry’s 24.7 did just enough to get him a 0.2 Week 4 win over John Rozek’s Champs squad.

The drafts for these leagues were held at our live events at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas with each team ponying up a $5,000 entry fee. with each champion pocketing a cool $25,000 first-place prize.

Strickler Now Leads Main Event; Volpe Ascends To Top of FPC

Strickler’s 226.6 Moves Him To 1st

Icemen Lead $3.1 Million Main Event by More Than 20

The 2019 FFPC Main Event has a new team atop its 2400 teams after three weeks of play. Ryan Strickler’s Icemen tallied 226.6 in Week 3 thanks to Mike Evans (45), Keenan Allen (43.6), Christian McCaffrey (27.8), Austin Hooper (27.6), Dak Prescott (26) and T.Y. Hilton (20.5). Strickler now leads John Laskowski’s 4th and Schlong by 21.75 going into Week 4. If Ryan Strickler’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he won the inaugural Footballguys Players Championship held in 2010. If he secures the title this year, he’d be the first-ever two-time overall champ of the competition.

Evan Silva’s STLCREW slipped one spot to third this week with last week’s leader–the Ezzell Brothers–falling to fourth. Micah Bailey’s Sopapilla came from way down the leaderboard in Week 2 to round out the top five this week fewer than 40 points off the pace.

Albert Chapman Atop Off-The-Grid

The Geckos–owned by Albert Chapman–scored 171.8 in Week 3 to tie Chad Schroeder’s Cocktails & Dreams with 11 victory points on the season in the 2019 FFPC Off-The-Grid League. For Chapman this past weekend, it was Keenan Allen’s 43.6, Mahomes and Austin Hooper’s 27.6 doing the heavy lifting. Chapman and Schroeder each lead their division in the competition with the league’s top-scoring team Ground and Pound–owned by Danny Mueller and Jeremy Roach–placing third place in the other division.

The draft for this league was held at our live events at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and each of the 12 teams used real cash to purchase their first two draft slots in this format with bidding routinely topping nearly $2,000 each for several of the picks. In addition to the weekly prizes in this competition, the overall champion of this 12-team league will take home a $10,000 grand prize.
