FFPC Draft Expert Format
Winning FFPC Draft Expert Roster Deep Dive

What does it take to succeed in the FFPC Draft Expert format? In this best ball format you draft a deep roster of 28 players whose performances are optimized into the flexible 10 man starting lineup of the FFPC. That lineup consists of 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D and 2 flex (RB/WR/TE).

To help answer this question, we took a deeper dive into the WINNING rosters of the 6 teams who each won their individual Pros vs Joes league in 2016. All of the rosters are listed below, in the order they were drafted, so you can get a side by side comparison of the teams that won their leagues. We also break down the number of players drafted at each position by the winning teams. A formula for success here? Perhaps. Take a glance at the names of the owners of these teams. Some of the most notable names in the industry are here, so following their lead regarding roster construction may not be bad advice. An optimal assortment of positions among the overall roster is just one pieces of the puzzle. Being a knowledgable player and populating those rosters spots with some sure things at the beginning of your draft, in addition to grabbing a few sleepers that you have confidence in is also key. Keep in mind these particular drafts are held in late July, so these owners are WAY ahead of the curve in their player prognostications.

Some of the interesting observations made include the items below, but after reviewing the rosters, you are likely to draw your own conclusions as well.

* All teams rostered either 2 or 3 QB's
* All teams rostered either 2 or 3 PK's
* All teams rostered either 2 or 3 D's
* Majority of teams had between 9 and 10 wrs
* Majority of teams had EITHER David Johnson or Julio Jones
* Majority of teams had EITHER Amari Cooper or Michael Crabtree
* Ty Montgomery was drafted in only 4 of 6 PvJ leagues. 2 of those 4 won their league.
* Only 1 of the winning teams drafted a QB before the 9th round
* Most importantly, none of the winning teams drafted the stiff Coby Fleener
