Monty won’t come out and say this, of course, but he’s one of the top high-stakes players in the world. He’s also an FFPC veteran with a wealth of experience in their various formats. I asked him to discuss his approach to FFPC dynasty leagues, including startups, orphans, and rookie drafts, and I’m excited to get his thoughts on both classic and superflex leagues. In Part 1, he discusses his overall philosophy and breaks down the QB and RB positions. In Part 2, he takes us inside his WR and TE moves and explains how to approach rookie drafts. I’ll let him take it from here. – Shawn Siegele
Do you feel shame when someone asks you, “Just how many leagues are you in, anyway?” Do you constantly check open leagues on dynasty registration pages and agonize over whether to join that startup with two open teams left? Do you rationalize each new league by telling yourself, I’m stuck in quarantine anyway and there are no sports on, so what’s one more team?
Yeah. Me, too.
This offseason, I’ve taken over two FFPC orphan dynasty teams and have drafted (with a partner) two startup teams, in addition to two other teams I was already managing. I’m currently running at least one team in every format that FFPC offers: standard head to head; dynasty best ball; superflex head to head; and superflex best ball. Most importantly (well, to me, anyway), I’ve been playing with house money, using credited funds in my account from past winning seasons to join new leagues. I’ve outlined some ways I’ve managed to do that.
