Fixtures

Premier League fixtures announced for 2018/19

The Premier League fixture list for 2018/19 was released today at 9am, giving Fantasy managers an early idea of which teams to target in the opening few Gameweeks.

Manchester City’s initial fixtures particularly stand out: the reigning champions begin with an away trip to Arsenal before they encounter all six of the sides promoted from the Championship over the last two seasons.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea only meet one of their fellow “big six” clubs in their opening half-dozen fixtures, meanwhile.

Newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers (EVE, lei, MCI, whu, BUR, mun) and Fulham (CPL, tot, BUR, bri, mci, WAT) have mixed starts, while Cardiff City have a decent trio of matches (bou, NEW, hud) to begin with before their fixtures toughen considerably: the Bluebirds then face six of last season’s top seven in their subsequent seven matches.

Wolves and Cardiff also have tricky-looking final-day encounters away at Liverpool and Manchester United respectively.

Southampton and Everton assets might be among those to consider in the opening months of the season: they are the only two clubs not to play any of last season’s top six sides in the first five Gameweeks.

      Hello everyone, been out of loop lately, so, can someone just brief me about any new rules about this WC fantasy football, how many chips do we get, when all can we use it? Like, triple captain, bench boost wildcard are there?
      Also, how much time left for deadline to pass?
      Would be a great help
      Thanks!

        GW1 punt (playing fantasy game in Norway)

        B: Belhanda (vs Iran)
        C: Meza (vs Iceland)
        D: Boutaib (vs Iran)

        ?

          Nope, but likely to start 2 of the 3 I guess

          Opinions on 1st WC draft?
          El Kajoui
          Kimmich Meunier Danilo Varela
          James Eriksen Isco
          Lukaku Cavani Jesus
          (Uzoho / Mojica / Sanchez / Ndiaye)

          Havent been able to prepare before now and im not sure on the best picks...
          Dont see the point in going for 6m mids who will most likely blank. This team gives 6 heavy hitters up top and a really strong defense. Any advice would be great!

              Bench needs alot of work

            • Legend of Rosicky
                6 days, 10 hours ago

                I would downgrade kimmich to Tagliafico or Pavard and get Someone like Belhanda/mezza in for sanzhez

                    6 days, 10 hours ago

                    No, keep Kimmich.
                    Downgrade Isco to upgrade bench.

                    What is with this Meza hype? I feel like Messi is the only Argentinian capable of producing points

                        He is good choice for his price imo

                        6 days, 10 hours ago

                        a) Pickford, Mojica, Isco & Werner

                        or

                        b) El Kajoul, Sabaly, Muller & Cavani

                            6 days, 10 hours ago

                            B, though i think get Cavani and Werner both and get a 9m midfielder for muller

                              Just bought Hazard and sold Jesus.

                              You heard it here first.

                                    Hazard vs Werner when i alreay have Kaku?

                                      I'm doubling up on Haz and Lukaku. First 2 games are incredible.. betting on Belgium hitting 7 in those fixtures... And Haz and Lukaku is being involved in most goals. I would be more resistant if there were bonus points on offer.. because then you kinda have a lower ceiling if you double up. That's the way I see it at least

                                        I'd avoid personally. Very likely to play, but GK is a good posistion to save money.

                                        I need to bench one of these players

                                        A) Granat (Egypt, Saudi Arabia)
                                        B) Taglifiaco (Iceland)
                                        C) Meza (Iceland)
                                        D) Danilo (Schwitzerland)

                                        Note: Russia plays twice in the first round in my domestic fantasy league.

                                        Currently on C. Thoughts?

                                                  Do I need to chnage it again?
                                                  I have 0.5 left so Im only thinking about Cueva to 6.5md.

                                                  El Kajoui/Uzoho
                                                  Meunier/Danilo/Trippier/Varela/Pavard
                                                  Eriksen/James/Ziyach/Cueva/Meza
                                                  Cavani/Jesus/Lukaku

                                                      6 days, 10 hours ago

                                                      I'd use it to upgrade Pavard

                                                          The problem is I dont see good defs for 5.0

                                                              Tagliafico?

                                                              Keep the 0.5 or upgrade El Kajoui

How is this team looking? Thinking of bringing in Trippier instead of Varela, same price. Transfers will cost 1% of player value.
