Diary of High-Stakes Virgins: FFPC Playoff Edition

After our disappointing finish in the FFPC Main Event, there was very little chance we were going to sit out the FFPC Playoff Challenge. With a $100,000 top prize to first, it represents the perfect opportunity for redemption. Here are some thoughts on how we plan to build our lineup, using some back of the napkin projected ownership percentages to inform our decisions.

The Details

The FFPC Playoff Challenge is a massive contest with 2,750 entrants and a $480,000 prize pool. There is no draft, each owner simply selects a roster of 10 players (1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, 2-Flex, 1-K, 1-D; Flex can be RB, WR or TE) with the caveat being that you may only select one player from each team. This team is your roster for the entire duration of the playoffs. No add/drops, no setting line-ups. The only other wrinkle is that the Super Bowl will count as double the points (2 points per reception, 12 points per touchdown, etc.). Otherwise, this is traditional FFPC scoring, which includes 1.5 points per reception for tight ends. You can check out the full set of rules and prize structure here. With a massive field and prizes being paid out to the Top 400 finishes, this contest clearly requires a GPP-esque mindset to cash.
