Quiz

Take our Fantasy Premier League 2017/18 quiz

Our weekly Fantasy Premier League quiz returns with 20 questions on the 2017/18 campaign.

We continue to venture back in time on a season-by-season basis and we’ve reached Mohamed Salah’s debut, record-breaking year at Liverpool – so there’ll naturally be one or two questions on the Egyptian.

There’ll be the usual mix of chin-scratchers on Fantasy returns and underlying numbers, with some of the statistics and images featured taken from our Members Area.

As ever, the questions range from the gettable to the fiendish – but we do at least give you four answers to choose from, to narrow the odds.

Click ‘next’ below to start the quiz and to cycle through the questions, and let us know how you got on in the comments section.

We’ll be back next week with the 2016/17 season.

    When will autosubs be added?

    1. Ragabolly
      • 10 Years

      They are added, although it might visually look like they aren't

      Added in rankings.

      What were you expecting? Not much attacking potential in those 3.

        4 decent home fixtures, didn't think I'd get anything better with a fixed budget of 100m, so thought it was worth a punt. Rest of the team scored 105 point, so you win some lose some.

  3. Ronnies

    94 pts OR 128

              At least you're bound to crack the top 5K in this one 😉

    96 all out and a rank of 101.

    I wish some day i will get a good start like that in the real game.

    That's it folks, GW1 of Virtual FPL done, auto subs added. As expected, we found some bugs here and there, but I think overall it was not as buggy as I was expecting!
    I'll work on some of the issues this week, and see you next Saturday! Hopefully GW2 will be simulated completely on Saturday, GW3 on Sunday, GW4 on Tuesday and GW5 on Thursday.
    Thank you for participating in this!

      Shouldn't McCarthy be on 1 Points. He came on for Gunn and conceded only 1 goal, no yc either

      1. SneakyPete
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 18 hours ago

        never mind, just realized 1st goal went in after he was introduced.

        1. SneakyPete
          • 9 Years

          Great work mate! A lot of goals, just the way I like.

      Thanks a lot for this Ragabolly, it's a welcome escape from everything that's going on at the moment. I can only imagine the amount of work and skill that went into developing this.

      1. Ragabolly
        • 10 Years

        Thanks Panda, developing the game helped me navigate the past month!

      Thank you, R.B. This is really scratching an itch. Fantastic work!

        1. Ragabolly
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 18 hours ago

          Me too! Hope it doesn't break the game though 😀

      Thanks much RB,

    5. TomSaints
      • 2 Years

      Absolute hero - I know with rights etc it wouldn’t be possible; but I would genuinely buy a fantasy football app where you could set up and sim seasons

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Fantastic work! No idea how you did this but it's amazing. I am really looking forward to the future game weeks. Perhaps you could run this every close season to help us with our annual withdrawal symptoms. Many thanks!

      Top work. Really appreciate you taking the time to put this together.

      Next Saturday just to give me time to fix some of the reported bugs. Then we'll have 4 GWs every week, see post above^

    3. Monkey Hanger

    1. Nomar
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 16 hours ago

      89 for me.

      Could have been so much better if the simulator believed in Maupay’s penalty taking abilities!

              Autosub freaked the system out.

    2. Ragabolly

      Fixed it, it was only a visual error in the rankings page thinking the autosub is the captain, but no actual ranks were affected.

    I know it's likely pointless, but which of the 3 should I lose to release some funds? And who is the best cheap striker for the run in?

    A) Auba

    C) Jimmy
