In December, we released an article detailing Underdog’s premier playoff contest: The Gauntlet.
It was great. If you missed it, imagine: 10-round best ball drafts that last the entirety of the postseason. All for a reasonable price of $25 per team.
Well, today I have some bad news:
That contest — with a 45,216-team cap — has filled.
The good folks at Underdog recently rolled out a brand new playoff contest with the same exact format. Except this time, there’s a $200K grand prize (previously $100K). Now, everyone will draft knowing all 14 playoff teams, seeded as follows:
1. Chiefs (1st round bye)
1. Eagles (1st round bye)
Those top seeds are worth focusing on for a moment. From my December piece:
This contest includes 4 separate rounds. You need to win each of the first 3 rounds — 2 in 6-person leagues, with the 3rd an 8-teamer — in order to advance to a 157-person Super Bowl final. If you’re too light on live players in the Wild Card round, well… you’re likely dead money.
So… no roster-stuffing Eagles and Chiefs.
Now, looking at ADP, we’re going to dish on players and stacks to target.
