And this year, I’m in a lot of them. So if anyone wants to try to lay the smack down on me this year, read on.
First of all, there’s Rotobowl.com, which is the main high stakes league I’ve been involved in since its inception. The live draft is in Atlantic City, NJ, which is 5 minutes from my house. This is a 12-team PPR draft with 2 Flex starters, which I like a lot.
The hook with this league is that it’s very affordable. For only $250, you can get in this league, with a partner, win $900 for your league, and move on for chances for more cash and prizes. Grand Prize is $20,000 and 2 tickets to the Super Bowl.

Another league I’m doing this year is the Fantasy Football Players Championship. This is a newer entry into the high-stakes fray, but they appear to be rock solid, and they have been through a full season in 2008. Their live draft is in Las Vegas, but I will be drafting online.
Here’s how this draft and league stand out, according to their representative.
- We are the only contest to put our prize money in escrow, so it is 100% safe.
- We offer the dual-flex with enhanced tight end scoring, for more flexibility when setting lineups.
- We offer superior payout percentages, in the 80% range for our main event.
- We offer both a live and an online draft option.
They are a few more here as well:

And finally, as you have likely seen on the homepage, I am going to draft live in New York City labor day weekend in the NFFC. For more information, head here
I am doing both of the Saturday drafts:
1 p.m.: NFFC Classic main event begins (14 teams)
6 p.m.: NFFC Primetime main event begins (12 teams)
I know I’m absolutely insane, since I’ll be in over 12 leagues this year and can’t keep up with all of them, but I will be paying close attention to this high-stakes leagues, for obvious reasons.
