FCF Draft – Week One Results

Fan Controlled Football held the league’s inaugural player draft Wednesday night. The draft one hundred players being divvied up between four teams. Of those players, four were franchised tagged by their respective teams. Those players were Johnny Manziel (Zappers), Jackson Erdmann (power-up) Wild Aces), Troy Evans, Jr. (Beasts), and David Pindell (Glacier Boyz). FCF Co-founder Patrick Dees announced Tuesday evening that the draft format would be as follows:

Preceding the draft was the Man Up! Pre Draft Show. This series of challenges pits 8 WRs, 8 DBs, and 4 QBs against one another. The object of the challenge is to score as many successful conversions attempts as possible, from the 10 and 5 yard line. The winning trio of WR, DB, and QB receive a Power Up bonus which travels with them to whichever team they are drafted to. These Power Up’s can be used during the game.

NOTE: Offensive Line / Tight End and Defensive Line units were drafted twice, and each unit plays in both games each week.
