Week 1 of the 2013 NFL Season is in the books. So far, so good for our FFPC teams. Both teams picked up a win. However, we’re dealing with injury issues on both teams. More on that after the jump….

One is never enough. We completed a second FFPC draft as we chase our shot at the $250,000 grand prize. For those unfamiliar with FFPC scoring, teams must start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 Flexes, 1 K, and 1 DEF. It’s dynamic point-per-reception scoring with tight ends receiving 1.5 points-per-reception. We drew the 1st pick out of 12. Without further ado, our draft results are recapped below:

Last year, Adam and I embarked on our first Footballguys FFPC journey. Our season was filled with some ups-and-downs, but we finished atop our league in points scored. We lost our Week 12 semi-final match-up and finished in the Top 500 out of 3,000 teams. We’ll look to build on last year’s strong showing. We like to draft during Labor Day weekend, so we opted to draft yesterday afternoon.

For those unfamiliar with FFPC scoring, teams must start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 Flexes, 1 K, and 1 DEF. It’s dynamic point-per-reception scoring with tight ends receiving 1.5 points-per-reception. We drew the 11th pick out of 12. Without further ado, our draft results are recapped below:

Every year, I enter one of CDM’s Fantasy Football contests. The concept is simple–assemble a team under the $60 million salary cap, score a lot of points and win money. The league scoring is standard, but passing touchdowns are only worth three points. Each team must start 3 QBs, 6 RBs, 6 WRs, 2 TEs, 3 Kickers, and 2 Team Defenses per week. In addition, teams are allowed to carry a bench of 12 players and can make 16 new player purchases during the season. Leagues typically consist of 25 owners.

One of our long-time readers was nice enough to sponsor my entry into the contest. Without further delay, here is this year’s entry…

On Sunday, Adam and I completed our first ever Fantasy Football Players’ Championship (“FFPC”) draft. For those unfamiliar, the FFPC is the premiere high-stake fantasy football league. Entrants participate in 12-team leagues where 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 Flex, 1 DEF, and 1 K are required each week. The FFPC includes bonus scoring for tight ends, rewarding 1.5 points per reception while other positions are rewarded with one point. Adam and I were awards the ninth pick and here’s how our draft went…

Yesterday, I profiled running back, Shonn Greene. Today, it’s time to turn our attention to the outside and evaluate the Jets’ top receiving option, Santonio Holmes. Last season, the Jets rewarded Holmes with a five-year, $45 million contract that includes $15 million in guaranteed money. However, instead of receiving premium production, the Jets got ‘Bad Santonio’.

Bad Santonio hauled in career lows in receptions (51) and receiving yards (654). Holmes’ eight touchdowns were his lone bright spot as he constantly bickered with Mark Sanchez. During the off-season, Holmes and Sanchez worked on their relationship. The Jets can only hope things turn around in 2012. With a full off-season of practice with Mark Sanchez, will Santonio revert back into a reliable fantasy starter?
