Keeping Karlsson: Because it’s the KKUPFL

Elan Dubrofsky


On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian announce Season 6 of the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League!

We kick off this week’s show with an exclusive interview with the reigning undisputed(?) KKUPFL Ultimate Champion, Max, who shares his keys to winning Season 5 and imparts some wisdom and advice for those who want to follow in his footsteps.

After that, we share all the details on KKUPFL Season 6. We go deep into how to build a fantasy league– points vs categories, H2H vs roto, trading and free agency, draft types, transaction limits, point weightings, keep managers active– and explain all the choices we’ve made (and not made) along the way in building the KKUPFL. We also unveil brand new Season 6 features like the Tier 1 Fast-Track and FAB trading, and wonder aloud if benches should be banished.
