Shawn Siegele looks at the fit for every tournament-relevant player in the FFPC Playoff Contest and constructs a path to winning $500,000.
If you haven’t yet played the FFPC playoff contests, you’re missing out on the best part of the reality playoffs. With price points at both $200 ($500k grand prize) and $35 ($100k), you get one more shot at a six-figure prize.
Both contests feature FFPC scoring with Super Bowl points doubled. You get to work with a huge starting lineup: 1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, 4-Flex, 1-K, 1-DST. With 12 starters and 14 teams, you have two teams that are faded entirely.
We’ve never had a season where the contest promises to be this much fun. The 2022/2023 playoffs feature a large slice of the most dynamic players in all of fantasy. The power teams feature multiple elite options to play through and the potential lineup combinations are vast. It includes . . .
- The three highest-scoring QBs, and all three come from Super Bowl favorites.
- The two highest-scoring RBs (Austin Ekeler and Christian McCaffrey).
- Two additional first-round fantasy picks at RB (Dalvin Cook and Saquon Barkley).
- The highest-scoring WR (min. 10 games) in Justin Jefferson.
- Two additional first-round picks (Ja’Marr Chase and Stefon Diggs) and four additional second-round picks (CeeDee Lamb, A.J. Brown, Mike Evans, and Tyreek Hill) at WR.
- The highest-scoring TE in Travis Kelce.
- Two additional high-end TEs in George Kittle and Dallas Goedert.
The hottest players also find their way into the contest. Take the RB position, for example. When looking at high-value touches in the Stealing Signals tool, we see that only one member of the recent RB leaderboard is missing.
RB High-Value Touches – Weeks 14-17
* As we progress through the article, I’ll be looking at statics through Week 17 in some places due to the varying incentives for teams in Week 18. In cases where I’m comparing players within a team, Week 18 will sometimes be included.
In today’s article, we’re going to use the RotoViz tools to break down every relevant player on the 14 playoff teams and examine how these pieces fit together to create a tournament-winning roster.
