Modaff& Zoretic Top Off-the-Grid

For the second straight week, Tom Brady led a high-stakes league team to the lead in the contest. This week, it was John Modaff’s and Tom Zoretic’s CHI-TOWN entry in the Off-The-Grid competition. Thanks to Brady’s 41.5, Jordan Howard’s 33.40, Hunt and Prater, CHI-TOWN notched a 171.9 in Week 3, which gives them 477.9 on the season. 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.


FPC Leader, Grossman & Sousa on Pods

On Thursday morning, remember to check out Rotoviz Radio‘s The High-Stakes Lowdown podcast with Nelson Sousa taking Evan Engram and FAAB budget management and the fourth place team in the FPC Adam Grossman discussing Zero-RB and Stefon Digg’s rise.

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.

After three weeks of play in the 2017 Footballguys Players Championship, Dallas Grimes finds himself sitting in the driver’s seat for the $250,000 grand prize. Dave Gerczak and I quiz him on why he drafted six tight ends, including three in the first six rounds. Plus Grimes gives his thoughts on what he sees happening with both the Washington and Cincinnati offenses going forward.

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. Plus, on-demand streaming is available for listening anytime via iTunesYouTubeGoogle PlayStitcher RadioTuneIn RadioSpreaker, or Overcast as well.


Targets Per Game Now Displayed

If you look at the stats section for pass-catchers on your leagues, you’ll notice that Tgt/Gm is now displayed as a sortable column. Since many of you have requested it, we were able to add this on as another piece of information you can use right on the site as you place your bids and set your lineups.

Also, as a final bit of housekeeping this week, some players have asked why they cannot bid on David Johnson in certain leagues where he has been dropped. As previously announced, since his availability to be acquired later in the season could obviously have a negative impact on how leagues were are decided, he was automatically locked in any leagues he was dropped after Week 1.


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