Eliteserien Fantasy make changes to player pricing

There have been several changes to Eliteserien Fantasy ahead of the 2019 season.

As we mentioned the other day, the biggest of those is that the powerful ‘Park the Bus’ chip has been replaced.

Coming in for it is the ‘Rich Uncle’ which allows managers to effectively field a Wildcard squad with no financial restrictions in one Gameweek.

Changes to player prices

There have also been changes to player pricing.

Previously the creators of Eliteserien Fantasy have been inspired by the pricing system used in Fantasy Premier League.

This involved the expected top teams having the most expensive players and the lesser clubs having the options at the cheaper end of the scale.

This season the developers have embraced the fact that Eliteserien is a very unpredictable league, and there is often a small gap between the teams at the bottom and top of the division.

As a result, some of the best players in the league (and for Fantasy) have been playing for the lesser side, and have been available pretty cheap.

This term we are finding some expensive players in teams that were almost relegated last year, so we are generally looking at more premium options in 2019.

Stabæk, who had to go through a play-off round to stay in Eliteserien last year, have forwards Ohi at 10,0 and Franck Boli at 9,0.

Strømsgodset, who finished just two points above relegation, have front-men Marcus Pedersen at 10,5 and Mos at 9,5.

Also, Lillestrøm, who finished just three points above the drop zone, have midfielder Arnór Smárason at 9,0.

The last two seasons the premium alternatives were mainly the Rosenborg players, but this time around they are joined by a selection of assets from Molde as well as a few standout options from lesser sides.

There are still some value picks to be found, but most likely there will be fewer than in previous years.

Changes to player positions

The developers of Eliteserien Fantasy have also fixed some of the out-of-position players.

Long-gone are the legendary defender picks like Erik Tønne (6,5) and Gilli Ròlantsson (6,5).

These two are now classified as midfielders (rightly so), and both priced in the mid-price brack.

Sarpsborg’s Amin Askar (5,5) is still available as a defender, although he is more likely to feature at full back than as a winger right now.

More interesting is the fact that some players that were ‘reverse OOP’ last season have been moved to a new position as well.

The most exciting ones is Vålerenga’s Bård Finne (9,5), who was a forward and has been moved down to midfield after mainly featuring as a left winger for last season.

Birk Risa (5,5) is also available as a defender, after playing left-back for most of the 2018 campaign while being classified as a midfielder.

New teams

We will be previewing who the best teams in Eliteserien Fantasy are very soon but for now we can tell you which clubs have left and joined the division for 2019.

IK Start and Sandefjord were the ones who were relegated to the 1. divisjon while Viking FK and Mjøndalen IF were promoted.

    What are the chances for a double gw 32 for ManCity and ManUtd?

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Utd guaranteed one already, City will have one too if they beat Swansea (which they should)

    I have 11 players at the moment with -4, team below:

    Fabianski
    TAA Pereira Digne Lascelles
    Salah Hazard Mane Fraser
    Higuain Vardy

    If Lascelles is confirmed out before the deadline, what would you do?

    A) Puncheon > Brooks for -4
    B) Jimenez > Wilson for -4 (1.1 value tied and I want him back in FH32 and WC34)
    C) Play with 10, no further hits

      d i reckon, wouldnt wanna bench anyone this week really

  5. scubasmithy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Ok...... guess we're all done and ready for 31 now.... so onto week 32 - it's free hit time for most of us..... my current free hit squad I'm planning is

    GK - Ederson (ful, CAR)
    DEF - Shaw (WAT, wol) - may double up on Chelsea defence instead
    DEF - Luiz (car, BHA)
    DEF - Doherty (bur, MUN)
    MID - Sterling (ful, CAR)
    MID - Hazard (car, BHA)
    MID - Pogba (WAT, wol)
    MID - Jota (bur, MUN)
    ATT - Aguero (ful, CAR)
    ATT - Lukaku (WAT, wol)
    ATT - Jimenez - may go rashford or Higuin instead

    Got about an extra 0.5 mill to play with once I've bought bench fodder......

    Thoughts? (obviously subject to confirmation of DGW fixtures and injuries)

    Liverpool have Spurs at home....... of the single game week fixtures only really Palace and Leicester appeal to me

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      That team gets me rather hard.

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        You not a gelding, then?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          I’m afraid not.

          1. Nomar
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            Good for you. 😀

      2. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Haha I know where your coming from

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      I have the same team in my mind. I have just not yet decided to Jota's place, I will have 7.0 to play and may consider the likes of Deulofeu, Townsend depending on the fixture.

    3. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      You not concerned about Wolves rotation ?

    4. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Palace might have a double with Huddersfield and Spurs right?

    5. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Personally I might avoid Wolves players where possible - I don't fancy them picking up too much in either of those fixtures.
      I'm still in two minds whether I want every player having two fixtures. Vardy at home vs Bournemouth, and Zaha at home vs Huddersfield for example. Some tough choices to be made.

      1. TLF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Palace may end up with a double

        1. Boris Bodega
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          That could tip me over to getting him in.

          1. scubasmithy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            and me - Zaha and Vardy are also the two I fancy that don't have doubles. could be a lot of rotation I think amongst the big teams due to Europe.

    6. Arn De Gothia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      shaw on 9 yellows? might only play 1 game

    7. Werkself - L5,D7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Assuming you've calculated the cost of that lineup, would you mind sharing it?

      1. scubasmithy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Cost of the lineup is 88.9 million - obviously you'll need to add in bench fodder

        GK, DEF, DEF, MID
        Cheapest I think for that is 3.9,3.8,3.8, 4.2 = 15.7

        Total = 104.6

        However, I'm already holding Pogba, Doherty, Haz, Luiz, Ederson so it works out a little cheaper than full price.

        1. Werkself - L5,D7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks.

    I think it's difficult to decide what to do here.Three transfers(-8) could give me 10 players.Sane->Mane?PVA->Luiz?Any other thoughts?

    Fab Pat*
    TAA PVA* kiko* Doherty* Bednarek*
    Salah Barnes Hazard Sane* Gibbs*

      Must have been tough having Sane over Mane.
      Who is upfront?

      1. wulfranian
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        One of the worst decisions of the year.I forgot.Barnes Kun Arnie

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          We’ve all had em.
          Do you have both Barnes?
          If so do you live there or something?

  8. Jimmy Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Need to pick two mid-priced midfielders for my GW31. I've all but settled on Fraser, but Tielemans vs Barnes (LEI) is proving a tricky one.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Liking the cut of Tielemans jib.

  9. buzzkill
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Already took a -4 to get Vardy in, can field a definate 10 for this week.
    My ML rival is FH'ing and will no doubt captain Mane.

    My question is, is it worth another -4 to get Mane (for Sterling) and captain to block him?
    My lead is 50, I'm worried about the damage he could do.

    1. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      At the same time, if your lead was 50, it's potentially already now 46. Do you want to go 42?
      Those are guaranteed also, anything else is potential.

      1. buzzkill
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Sorry, should have mentioned my lead currently (before my hit) is 53.
        I go in to GW31 with a -4 making my lead 49 as it stands.

        If I want Mane, my lead going in will be 45.

        1. onceuponatyne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          It's a tough one, but I'd probably do it.
          Not just because you're bringing in Mane, but it's a good move to have 3 Liverpool players during all of this anyway.

  10. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Have a team value of 102.2.
    That’s pretty low I guess. What’s yours?

    1. Fantasy Gold
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      106.

      Still on the low side around these parts I bet

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        That’s a bit mad.

      107.2 but will drop 0.4 after selling Rash tonight.

    7. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year

      107.9
      but 9 straight weeks with red arrows though, so time to put that value to good use with FH and WC the next few GWs

    6 months, 12 days ago

    All things considered, I think this will be my move tonight:
    Sterling, Jimi > Fraser, Vardy (-4)

    This will give me this team:
    3.2itb
    Fab
    Robbo, TAA, Luiz, Pereira
    Salah (C), Fraser, Maddison
    Higuain, Vardy, Barnes
    (Hamer) (Pogba*, Doherty, JWP)

    Do you think this is enough and can consider Pogba > Haz in GW33 for free if he looks worth it for 1GW (FH32/WC34) or will Haz finally find himself vs EVE and justify an additional -4 this week?

    Thanks gents - apologise for pretty much asking the same question in 20 different ways over the past few days - I've started to annoy myself now also 😆

  12. Fantasy Gold
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Does this sound like a good plan?

    GW31: Kola and Aguero > Diop and Higuain for free

    GW33: Anderson > Hazard for free

    1. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Diop?

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      In case it matters, Kola plays in 33 (but away)

    3. donlobatto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Mind sharing rest of your GW31 team?
      In theory looks fine

      I'm also considering going Haz-less this week and having as an option for free for GW33

  13. Nomar
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Wilson v King is an interesting one.

    One week it seems to be Wilson bagging the points, the next week it’s King.

    That said, I wish I waited a week, I got King in last week. If I was doing it this week I’d have gotten Wilson.

    1. donlobatto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Agreed which is why I'm prob going Fraser, Vardy instead of Haz, Wilson this week - Fraser less injury prone and less likely to have his points stolen!

    2. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      I punted on Wilson last week, only because I wanted him for the rest of the season, and for GW31. Got lucky.

    1. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Yes. Maddison for me

  16. wulfranian
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Vardy or Wilson for gw31 and gw33?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Thought this might help you.
      Chances for teams having a gw 32 double.

      Wolves - bur MUN - confirmed
      United - WAT wol - confirmed
      Chelsea - car BHA - extremely likely (90%+)
      Brighton - SOU che - extremely likely (90%+)
      City - ful CAR - highly likely (80%+)
      Cardiff - CHE mci - highly likely (80%+)
      Palace - HUD tot or HUD new - pretty likely (70%+) but HUD tot much more probable
      Spurs - liv CPL - quite likely (60%+)
      Watford - mun FUL or mun SOU - quite likely one or other (55%), each equally probable
      Fulham - MCI wat - less likely (27%)
      Soton - bha wat - less likely (27%)
      Newcastle - ars CPL - very unlikely (10%).

            No. Never been to Africa proper. North Africa only - Egypt, Morocco. And I don't really think of them as Africa though they geographically are.

    Chances of Clyne keeping his place once Smith is fit?

      Too much, no king but I guess you own him already and trying to fit the rest.. right?

        Nope. Have none but getting in Wilson and Fraser for sure. Unsure on who else to get in. Between King, Brooks, Madisson and Ake

    Rich Uncle in week 2? That’s likely to be the only DGW right?

    I’m flying completely blind here and reading notes from people. Sort of tempted to keep it until I sort of know what I’m about.

    Goal - to hit the top 60,0000

    Molde - Sarpsborg08 has been moved from GW17 to the 21st of July. This is a week where no games in the league takes place, so it will likely be placed in GW15, the last GW before the summer break.

    GW15 is the first BGW of the season, so Molde will now end up with a single game, while Sarpsborg will have a double.
