Footballguys Players Championship Game Format: Choose an FFPC lineup (1QB 2RB 2WR 1TE 2FLEX[RB/WR/TE] 1K 1D/ST) of any 10 players from the 12 NFL playoff teams to create your team – but you may only choose ONE player or defense per NFL team. Your entire roster will score points each week of the NFL playoffs based on the FFPC scoring rules, and all points scored in the Super Bowl will be DOUBLED. Read on for more details.
Free Agents: There will be no free agency in the Footballguys Players Championship – the team you select prior to the kickoff of the first NFL Wild Card game will remain your team through the end of the contest.
Roster/Scoring: The Footballguys Playoff Challenge starting lineup allows for two (2) flex positions, also known as the Dual-Flex. The scoring system gives 1 point per reception for RBs & WRs but also gives 1.5 points per reception for TEs, putting extra weight to the TE position. Action scoring is implemented for all TDs: any TD scored by a player is scored as 6 points to that individual player, in addition to any D/ST scoring that may apply. Stat errors will be automatically corrected using Elias Sports Bureau.
