FLW has made some significant changes to its Fantasy Fishing game for 2014. Under the new format, players will build a roster of 10 pro anglers at predetermined values within a $200 salary cap for every FLW Tour event. The value of each angler will change for each event, so players will have to adjust – not just to the fishery as in the past, but also to the valuation of each angler.
The format will force players to choose more than just the local favorites and perennial top finishers; the best-performing players will dig deep for high-value anglers.
Fifty prizes are awarded for each of the seven individual tournaments, including a $5,000 top prize. In addition, 10 cumulative prizes, including the $10,000 grand prize, will be awarded to the top-scoring teams from all seven tournaments combined.
FLW Fantasy Fishing is free to play and FLW members receive access to fantasy tools to aid in angler selection.
Players can view changes, examine angler valuations and select a roster at www.FantasyFishing.com. The FLW Tour opener is slated for Feb. 6-9 on Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston, Fla.
