NFBC: Overview and strategies of Cutline

The NFBC has offered the Cutline format over the last few years. The ten-team format features a 42-round draft that owners can choose to finish in a two-three hour time slot or as a slow draft. The national contest hosted 145 leagues in 2017 that competed for the $50,000 overall prize. As a points-based format, Cutline offers various ways to create point differentials at each 23-man position. Scoring over 9,000 points by the All-Star break would place teams in the running for their Cutline league titles.
