Euro 2012

Fantasy League Pro – The Wrap Up

With today’s deadline looming across all the Fantasy games, your lineups should be close to being finalised – your Fantasy League pro auctions now complete.

I put the final piece in my 15-man squad with the capture of Mario Balotelli on Wednesday evening, he’ll work in a dubious partnership with Robin Van Persie to carry my hopes over the group stages.

Of course, the League Chairman should now have moved their games on and paved the way for sealed bidding to start on transfers. I’ve set my league to allow transfers after every set of Group matches, with a first deadline at 10pm on June 11 – I’m limiting bids to 5 per round with 20 over the tournament as a whole. Your chairman might have done different – that’s certainly one of the interesting elements of the Pro game.

Chairman can set your sealed bids deadline for the first round of transfers via their Chairman’s Office, by clicking on Sealed Bids. Here you can set a deadline for managers to make bids for the remaining free agents. You go back to this screen on the deadline to process the bids – watch out for any bids made after the deadline when you do. By default, managers can make unlimited transfers over the tournament – if you want to restrict that, you can do so, again via the Chairmans Office. This initial screen is also where a Chairman can change the cap on the number of players per country – I’m tweaking mine to 4 after the group stages are complete.

If there are any Chairman struggling to move their game on past the auction phase, due to final bids not being made or teams failing to make bids, then they should contact prosupport@fantasyleague.com asap. Provide details of your division id (available in the url of your league page) and the team id’s effected (available in the url of the teams in question) and they will resolve the issue so you can move you games on in time for today’s kick-off.

    so if you switch the armband to a later captain choice does that bench the player or just give the armband to a later player?

    Thoughts on willems? Is there a better defender for that price? (already got polish, czech, greek, russian and croatian defenders.)

      Interested too...

      I think he is only an option now due to the injury to another Dutch defender. Not sure how likely Willems is to play, if I knew he would be a starter I would definitely get him in.

      2 Goals in 8 games over 15 month period in a free scoring german side?

      33 Years old?

      Having said that he seems a big tournament player so could be a gamble worth taking.

      Gomez more likely to start though.
