With the completion of the DFFL season and subsequently, the NFL regular season, the League casted their Pro Bowl and Awards ballots this past week. In stunning fashion, all 8 owners promptly voted within 48 hours and there were no faulty ballots for the first time in history.
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.
It is my pleasure to present your 1st and 2nd Team DFFL Pro Bowl Teams.
