High Staked: Strategies for Struggling Squads

Veteran high stakes fantasy football player Monty Phan chronicles his season. In FFPC head-to-head leagues, the standings report always includes an asterisk next to the names of the teams that would qualify for the playoffs if the season were to end that day. Early in the schedule, those asterisks are fairly meaningless. “Ooh, I would be the top seed if the season were only one week long!” After six weeks, though, they’re more significant, especially in the Main Event, where four out of 12 teams make the league playoffs, according to these rules: The top seed is the team with the best record (with total points as a tie-breaker if two or more teams share the same record); the second seed is the remaining team with the most points; third seed is best record of the teams that are left; fourth seed is the team with most points once the three other seeds have been determined.
