2016 DFFL Pro Bowl and Awards

DFFLProBowlLogo

With the completion of the DFFL season and subsequently, the NFL regular season, the League casted their Pro Bowl and Awards ballots this past Monday. In stunning fashion, all 8 owners promptly voted within 24 hours and with only one hanging chad on the ballots (Deppen voting for the same defense twice). Perhaps there is hope for 2017 after all.

The Pro Bowl Teams were determined by the consensus voting of all 8 league owners and players were slotted in their respective positions based on positional voting, with the caveat of voting for players on an owner’s team being prohibited. Unanimous 1st and 2nd Team selections have been bolded. The FLEX positions were determined by the players receiving the most votes not already included on the team. League ROY and MVP were determined by the same voting system.

League runner-up, Willenium Force, placed a league-best 6 players on the 1st and 2nd teams while 2016 Champion Scooter’s Squad finished with 4 players on the 1st and 2nd teams. 3rd place – Slob On My Cobb, placed 3 players on the 1st team, tying Willenium Force for the league-lead.

It is my pleasure to present your 1st and 2nd Team DFFL Pro Bowl Teams.
