Another week of NFL action brings us to the end of Week 12 of the 2020 UKFL season (finally). Seems crazy that the last game played was originally scheduled for a week before, and it really didn’t really live up to the adage good things come to those that wait did it? While we are talking about Week 12- anyone else go up against a combo of Will Fuller and Tyreek Hill? If you did, my condolences (and I feel your pain).
Well, we are moving right towards the playoffs, with just one week left until the playoffs start. Each week I’ve shared with you the way the playoffs would work, but as a highlight:
- You need to enter a team into the Sleeper app (the result of that in-app game doesn’t matter)
- Teams face everyone in the matchup they are put into
- Highest scores advance from each matchup
Hopefully, that’s made it a little bit clearer- but if you have any questions about it at all, please let us know. It’s best to reach out to us on Twitter if you have any questions about the league, we are always happy to help.
As with each week, a few messages from us and the updated playoff picture of the season.
2020 UKFL Week 12 Highest Score
The highest score this week was in the Gary Lineker division. User HitParade managed a score of 223.04. This is actually the second time that he has been the highest scorer, having won the award back in Week 3.
Not overly surprising he had that magical combo of Fuller and Hill:
So, he wins the next discount code from National Vintage League. We will be in touch to give you your 15% off code. Thanks again for your continued support.
The bit that you are waiting for. The updated playoff picture is below. This might be slightly different from what you are seeing in Sleeper. The reason being that we give a spot for the top scorer, and in some cases, they might be a little further down the table.
If you are unsure, please ask.
The Top Prize
The top prize is tasty. We have a signed helmet from JJ Watt! It comes courtesy of the guys at Kickers Matter. An incredible prize donation, so thank you again! If you haven’t listened to them, you should- especially if you play dynasty.
National Vintage League
Our weekly prize is donated by the guys at National Vintage League. They’ve been with us from the start (infact, I remember pitching the general outline to Chris a while before we had anything fixed).
They are a great part of the NFL UK community, and are now making a weekly show. You can check out the latest episode below:
UKFL3: Signups Are Open
Alot of you have signed up for next year, but there are alot of you haven’t.
Remember, you have to signup each year that you want to participate. So head over and signup so you don’t forget! Don’t be that guy that slides into the DMs right at the start of the draft asking if you signed up and misses playing next year.
To date, we have raised £370 (with another £79.00 gift aid) so thank you so much! We’ve also seen some people have made donations to personal charities for them- so that’s great too!
If you want to make a donation, then you can do so here.
COVID Affected Games
We have made a post about our approach to them for this season. Luckily there haven’t been any postponements that have meant we need to put this in place this year, but in case there are please take a look at the rules!
To make it simple:
- You can enter replacements as many times as you like (your last valid one for each player will be taken). I.E. If you have 4 players in the game, you can enter a sub for each player
- The substitution ONLY takes effect if the game is cancelled. If for any other reason your player is out then no substitution will be made.
