As a reminder, FFPC Slow drafts (Best Ball, Classic & Victory Points) have a six-hour clock (timer per pick). There is also 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.
There are slow drafts in some league formats available with a two-hour clock also with the same nightly pause. These drafts are for players looking for a much faster slow draft experience. Please check the draft lobby to see which drafts are available with a two-hour clock.
Our redraft Best Ball slow draft leagues at entry fees of $35, $77 and $250 are open for entry and continue to fill daily. Jump in now, and make this your best summer ever!
NEW FOR 2019: The FFPC has added a $35 credit as a second-place prize for $35 leagues. The payout percentage for $35 leagues now exceeds 90%.
Anyone that loves drafting should jump in now and draft a 2019 Best Ball team tonight!
