Kuzma, Sousa & Pohle This Week

Getting into the top-10 of the 2017 Footballguys Players Championship is no small task, and Ryan Pohle talks with David A. Gerczak and me to share exactly how he’s done that. The guys also explore the merits of waiting on a quarterback, whether Will Fuller can be dropped, what Amari Cooper’s true dynasty value is and much more. Plus we examine the 2017 Fantasy Football Players Championship Main Event after nine weeks of play as well.

The High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour normally airs Friday nights at 10/9c. You can always catch the replay of our show on the Fantasy Sports Radio Network as well as terrestrial radio stations all over North America in syndication.

Tomorrow morning, remember to check out Rotoviz Radio‘s The High-Stakes Lowdown podcast with Mike Kuzma, the 2016 Footballguys Players Championship $250,000 winner. We discuss which (if any) Broncos are startable, his team near the top of the leaderboard in the Main Event and more! Plus Nelson Sousa, the 2016 FFPC Main Event co-champ, discusses the drop in Kareem Hunt’s workload and taking some chances with lineup submissions to sneak into the playoffs.

You can check out a new episode of The High-Stakes Lowdown every Thursday on Rotoviz.comRotoviz Radio’s BlogTalkRadio channel or iTunes. I’d also encourage you to check out all of the other great podcasts that Rotoviz Radio has to offer including Fantasyland, a show that has already featured many FFPC players as well.

Schroeder Leads Off-The-Grid League

T.Y. Hilton’s 34.5 led the way with Kamara, Gurley and Hopkins also helping Chad Schroeder’s Cocktails and Dreams to a 165.3 score in Week 9. The tally gives Schroeder 25 victory points and 1227.2 points on the season, both good for tops in the league. In addition to the weekly prizes in this format, the overall champion of this 12-team league will take home a $10,000 grand prize.

Thank You, Veterans!

On behalf of Dave, Alex and Chris, a big thank you goes out to all of our veterans out there from the FFPC. No matter if you’re still in active duty or retired from the service, we appreciate everything you’ve done for this country and us so that we can enjoy playing fantasy football and our lives in general.

I encourage all of you to take a few minutes out of your Saturday to shake a vet’s hand and tell him or her how thankful you are for the sacrifices they have made in their lives. Thanks again!

Dropped Players Lock This Week

This is the week, players! QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs which are cut during Week 10, Week 11 and Week 12 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. Dropped defenses and kickers will still be available for acquisition. This is done to minimize the possibility of potential collusion.

And as a reminder, even if injuries or other issues derailed your 2017 season, make sure you are still setting your lineups! Please don’t anger the fantasy gods, and keep karma on your side for 2018 by being competitive this weekend the rest of the season. 🙂

Only TWO weeks left in the Main Event and Footballguys Players Championship regular season, everyone! The decisions you make over the next two weekends could be the most important you make all season!

Good luck in your bids tonight players, and I’ll see you in the chat room Friday night!
