Shawn Siegele finished No. 2 overall in the 2021 FFPC Best Ball Tournament and reached the finals of the 2022 FFPC Superflex Tournament (both with his Overtime co-host Colm Kelly). Now he looks at what the Roster Construction Explorer tells you about winning in 2023.

The original FFPC Superflex tournament has filled, but not to worry. Superflex 2 offers a $10,000 grand prize in a relatively small field tournament at the low price of a $35 entry. This has been one of my favorite formats to play over the last several years, and the insights from our best ball tools make it a slam dunk for RV subscribers.

The Superflex stands at the intersection of a couple of interesting trends. Elite QBs have gotten extremely expensive, while RBs have underperformed. They now look poised to deliver 2016 level dominance . . . or crash and burn.

As best ball has evolved over recent years, drafters have learned to be more suspicious of RB-heavy builds. An Anchor RB will often help, and a double-anchor can be successful in the right format and the right year – if you wait quite a while on your RB3.

But true RB-heavy teams post terrible win rates, and most of the community has backed off that approach.

The FFPC Is a Great Format for RB-Heavy But Not Quite Good Enough

Erik Hove presents the top options for beating the 2023 FFPC Superflex tournament.

Looking specifically at the FFPC Best Ball Slim format, we see that a double-anchor start has delivered average win rates and few top teams.

If drafters start RB-heavy but then wait on the RB3, it helps quite a bit.

2-RB in First 3, RB3 After Round 7 (2021-222)

We now have very good results for drafters who selected no more than six RBs total.

Unfortunately, for drafters who decided to add a third RB early, the results were catastrophic.

3 RBs in First 4 Rounds (2021-22)

The RB-heavy approach was quite a bit more popular, which helps to explain why this format has been so much fun for RV subscribers.
