Here we are the end of Week 14, and the first week of the 2020 UKFL playoffs! I have the same messages as last week in regards to your participation for next year, then share with you the way the playoffs have worked out for the week.
I’m fully aware that some of you are going to drop off the radar as you didn’t make the playoffs or get eliminated. So I just wanted to thank you for participating this year.
If you haven’t signed up for next year (or aren’t sure if you have) then you make sure you do and keep your place for next year. 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! Honestly, it’s fantastic that during all this uncertainty that we have managed to raise this much money. It’s truly fantastic and I’m humbled. If you still want to make a donation, then you can do so here.
Ok, let’s get into the roundup!
2020 UKFL Week 14 Highest Score
The highest score this week was in the Mo Farah division. User MattT90 managed a score of 213.60.
They, of course, had a great Derrick ‘King’ Henry and Jonathan Taylor combination, as well as Trubisky scoring nearly double Patrick Mahomes!
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.
So, to try and make this clearer I’m going to break it down into sections. If you are in blue, you are at the top of the bucket. Red and you aren’t.
IMPORTANT please remember to set lineups in Sleeper each week. That is where the scores are pulled from! Your in-app result doesn’t matter!
Seed 1 and 2 Bucket
Seed 3 and 4 Bucket
Week 15 Outlook
For the avoidance of doubt:
Seed 1 and 2 Players:
- Blue you are through to the final week. However, you should set a lineup for Week 15 as it is your maximum score in Week 15 & 16 that determines your overall final score
- Red you have another matchup in Week 15
Seed 3 and 4 Players:
- Blue you have another matchup in Week 15
- Red you are eliminated (sorry!)
If you are at all unsure please reach out to us!
How The Playoffs Work
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. This week, there is no show. But…..there is their own beer!? That’s right! You can find out more about it below:
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.
