Season 16 Premiere is TBD on Bravo, but likely December 2018.

The 2018 Top Chef Season 16 Fantasy Foodball League is invite only. To request an invitation contact Commissioner Matt. Feel free to create your own 4 person league using the draft and scoring rules on this page.  I’ll be keeping the chef standings updated for you on this page – check back in after each episode to see how the players in your league are scoring!


The Draft


Chefs Chosen Per Person

Format: Strategy Draft

Each league will be comprised of 4 players. Each player will select four Chefs during the Draft. Whoever has the most points (combined from all four of their Chefs) at the conclusion of the season wins!

Players will choose their Chefs one at a time until all 16 Chefs have been picked.  The first-pick and remaining draft order will be selected by a game of chance, or you can use this randomizer tool to determine draft order.

Week 1: Scouting

Week 1 is for scouting, the game officially starts on Week 2.
