The Second Season
2021 Fantasy Football Playoff Challenge

Two unique ways to play playoff fantasy football.

Option 1 - Stack 'em

Stack your lineup with any number of players from any number of playoff teams. Think the Bucs are a shoe-in for a repeat? Want an all Kansas City team? This is the option for you. But remember, putting all your eggs in a basket is high risk, high reward!

Option 2 - Spread 'em

Pick one player from each of the 14 playoff teams. This method makes it so you always have a shot at the title since everyone in your league will always have the same number of active players. So think about who comes up big in the playoffs, and ride him to a league title!

  • Hand pick your roster, if you want him on your team, you can have him on your team. No draft, no salary cap.

  • Set up private leagues to play with your friends, or public leagues.

  • As with all our games, The Second Season is FREE to play!

Setting Your Lineup

There are four (4) playoff rounds total during the Football Playoff Challenge. Prior to the first round of the playoffs, you will choose a roster of fourteen (14) players. There is no draft, each owner will be able to hand pick their roster. You will not be able to change your lineup once the playoffs begins. Once the playoffs start your lineup locks for the remainder of the Football Playoff Challenge.

Prior to the opening round, the pool of available football players will be selected by each owner and submitted to the Administrator. You can keep track of your team during the course of the playoffs, and the Administrator will update point totals at the end of each playoff game.

You can set your lineups as soon as playoff teams and seeds are set.

Multiple Teams

Your league commissioner has the option to enable multiple teams per user for your league. This feature is part of the sign up process, and if enabled you can have as many teams as you want per account!

Tiebreakers

Ties will be broken by comparing tiebreaker answers each owner will provide with final roster submission.

Site Settings

Welcome to the 2021 thesecondseason.com Football Playoff Challenge where you can experience the excitement of postseason fantasy football! As a team owner, you will pick a team of players who you think will collect the most Fantasy Points throughout the playoffs. Points are based on the statistics players accumulate during the playoffs. You'll build a team of fourteen (14) players. Once first playoff game kicks off, your roster is locked. Depending on which league option you choose, your roster gets slimmed down as teams are eliminated. Your challenge is to pick players whose teams you believe will continue playing all the way to the finals. The challenge will begin on the first playoff weekend and run through the Super Bowl.

No Cost

The Football Playoff Challenge is FREE to play for the entire season! No purchase or entry fee necessary to enter or win.
