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.

Fantasy League Classic

If you missed out on the Fantasy League Pro action, and you’re still looking out for an alternative to your McDonalds lineup, you can still take advantage of the Fantasy League Classic game. Entry to this is £5 with over £10,000 in the prize pot, including £5,000 to the winner.

        That tweet is safe enough for me. You have to take calculated risk in this game, that tweet makes it 95%. You're rarely going to get 100% confidence so go for it!!

          yes, but don't you think it's a risk to select a player who is only just returning from injury. Is there any point when you have another option for the same price who doesn't have this issue?

      A lovely differential, but too much of a risk imo.

      Not so bad as Italy is the hardest game.

      I'd avoid for now and use your wildcard to get them whoever starts in for the next two rounds (though Spain are a bit of a mare for rotating in game 3, if they've won the first 2 matches expect to see Mata, Fabs, Reine etc get a game...)

      DO NOT GET YOUNG - England attacking options are out of bounds.

      But I also don't think they will concede many so I'd pick one from Benzema or Ribery

      Probably go with Benzema and the Sneijder or Iniesta.

      Keepers play on the same day - you need to dith one so you can swap if one concedes.

      And both the keepers are unsure of starts. If you cant stick around to see the team sheets before the deadline you need to ditch the Greek, Given is in same price bracket if you need a quick switch.

      As is Issaksson but you have Olsson.

      assuming this is for mcdonalds: due to the nature of team management in this format i think it silly not to have a)two keepers playing seperate days so that the latter can replace the incumbent if things don't go his way. b) by the same token, no fillers. you can utilize the full squad so don't hamstring yourself by carrying players like granqvist who probably won't play abd are a waste of a space

    Sorry if this problem has been discussed but at work with no time to scroll back pages!! honest 🙂
    Is there any way for a chairman to delete a not competing player opponent from the Pro Euro game, it may be a problem they've not considered as there is a backlog with enquiries at helpdesk. Ta.

    RE yarmelenko calf injury. I can only find that one tweeter saying he is a doubt. No one else is, including Uefa or the Ukrainian Coach. In fact at an open training session yesterday all 23 took part and are 'ready to play'.

    http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro/news/blogs/blog=blog_ukraine_team/postid=1804337.html

    Looking at Yarm's assist potential I would perhaps advise sticking with him until you hear more. One tweet doth not maketh an injury...ancient Ukrainian proverb.

    Meanwhile to my fellow Euro cup players the above should no way imply that I have Yarm.

    Team Jamtzy ftw!

      Demi stuck up another one from the same guy saying he's fit.

      To All: 1-0 Robbie Keane @35/1 is too good to turn down
