If you could choose to be anywhere in the world for Week 1 of the NFL season, drafting in one of the fantasy football money leagues at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas with the Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) would have to be at the top of your list. The FFPC is the largest high stakes fantasy football contest in the world, and it will be holding its live drafts for the seventh straight year in Sin City from September 4 -6, 2014. The FFPC will pay all of its winners from its high stakes fantasy football industry-record $2,000,000 prize pool.
Beginning the Thursday before the start of the NFL season, the FFPC will kick off the first of its fantasy football leagues. And that night, each player will be invited to the opening game viewing party featuring a full bar and plenty of food. Everyone will be able to enjoy the Packers take on the world-champion Seahawks while engaging with other players in the biggest high stakes fantasy football tournament in industry history.
This year I am making it a family event as a matter of fact. No, I’m not brining the wife, what do you think, I am stupid? No, this year I am bringing along not only my Fantasy Alarm Brothers Ted Schuster and Ray Flowers but also my nephews. You see, my nephews are at the age where they want to experience Vegas and when asked when they should go and where they should stay I had my answer immediately. There is nothing quite like Las Vegas that first week of the NFL season and along with the FFPC it truly is a sports fans and fantasy football players dream come true.
When you want to play fantasy football for money, it simply does not get any better or more lucrative than what the FFPC gives its players year after year. The opening night game is just the start of your ultimate fantasy football weekend in Las Vegas. Starting Friday morning after the opening game, you’ll be able to sit down at your Main Event draft table to assemble your team with the UNLV cheerleaders facilitating all the live FFPC Main Event drafts. And after your 20-man roster is drafted, you can watch them play Week 1 right in Vegas. You and everyone else playing in these fantasy football leagues for money will battle it out for another record grand prize of $300,000. But even if you don’t take first, overall finishers all the way down to 80th place get paid, and you’ll still have a crack at the $11,000 in the 12-team league prizes, too.
While participating in these lucrative fantasy football prize leagues will occupy most of your weekend in Vegas, don’t forget to enjoy the other things the Entertainment Capital of the World has to offer either. From the poker tables to the shopping, the Freemont Street Experience to relaxing at a spa, taking in a live show to betting on the ponies or any event the sports book is taking wagers on, you’ll have an endless amount of distractions to keep your mind fresh and focused when you sit down to begin your quest to success at the draft table.
Ask anyone who has already experienced the kickoff to the NFL season in Vegas, and they won’t be able to retell their tales without cracking a massive smile. The atmosphere is indescribable; the memories last forever and the odds are always in your favor. This year, cash in on your fantasy football prowess and compete against myself and Ted Schuster from the Fantasy Alarm in the FFPC: Simply put, it’s where to play fantasy football.
