Super Chop Contest Overview

Super Chop is the high stakes version of guillotine leagues.

Super Chop contests are comprised of 12 guillotine leagues, each with 12 teams, resulting in 144 total teams. The season consists of two phases, a regular season and the playoffs.

Just like a regular guillotine league, in Super Chop we're still chopping the week's lowest scoring team and those players still go to the waiver wire.

The regular season occurs between Weeks 1-11 and operates identically to a standard guillotine league, except with 12 teams instead of 18. After Week 11, there will be one remaining team in each league. Each of the 12 League Winners wins a cash prize and advances to the playoffs to merge into a new, single league.

An online playoff draft for league winners will occur at 7:00 pm CT on the Tuesday evening of November 22nd, 2022, immediately after Week 11. In-season FAAB resets completely for the playoffs.

The last team standing through the playoffs is the overall champion.

General Gameplay

(Regular Season)

Every week (from Weeks 1 through 11), the team with the week's lowest score is chopped from the league and their season is over.


That team's entire roster goes to the waiver wire and is eligible to be acquired via free agency.


There are no head-to-head matchups, which means there are also no win/loss records.

Playoffs

The 12 league winners will hold a new draft and compete from Weeks 12 through 17 until just one team remains.

During the playoff phase, all teams' FAAB will be set to $500, and all free agent acquisitions (whether by blind bidding or first-come, first-served) will continue through Week 17.

Playoff teams are eliminated in the following format:

  • Weeks 12-16: Each week, the two lowest-scoring teams for that week are chopped. After Week 16, there are two teams left.
    • The two teams chopped in Week 16 finish in 3rd and 4th place, with 3rd place going to the higher-scoring team.
  • Week 17: The final two teams meet in the championship game, and the higher scoring team is declared the champion.
