Shawn Siegele breaks down an FFPC Superflex Best Ball Tournament draft and explores the intersection of structure and value.

The FFPC Best Ball Tournament has been one of my favorite formats to draft this offseason, and its popularity suggests a bigger tournament next year. Until then, I love the intimate 4,752-entry field and compelling $10,000 grand prize.

I’ll be drafting fairly heavily in this format, and if you’ve read the first two parts of the series, you understand why.

Part 1: QB Win Rates and Contrarian Tactics
Part 2: Late-Round Values to Fix a Broken Build

It’s possible to attack the Superflex Best Ball Tournament in a wide variety of ways and create player combinations that are impossible in other league types. We’ll see that again today in Part 3, as Blair Andrews and I put together a crazy team.

Here’s one of the questions we get a lot: What does it mean to stay in structure and how do you recover after a detour?

Colm Kelly and I recently did a show on this topic for Overtime. If you’re not on the Zero RB bandwagon, don’t worry. We also cover other structural approaches that generate elite win rates.

Today’s lesson in the Best Ball Workshop will focus on this question of structure and whether we always want to follow it. How can we combine the recommendations from the FFPC Roster Construction Explorer with a draft approach that focuses relentlessly on value?
