How to play FanTeam’s €1m Premier League Fantasy Game – A Beginner’s Guide


Sponsored by FanTeam


Fantasy Football Scout are again joining forces with FanTeam, Europe’s biggest daily Fantasy sports platform, for the 2020/21 season.

An astonishing – and guaranteed – €1m is on offer in their season-long Premier League Fantasy game, with €200,000 going to the winner.

There is no catch here, only a €25 entry fee – a payment you’ll make up just by finishing in the top 5,659.

Given that only 75,000 entries are permitted, the odds are favourable for those who know their stuff.

On top of that, there are also prizes handed out to Fantasy managers who perform well on a weekly and monthly basis.

So how do you play FanTeam’s game?

Our guide below has all you need to know to get started.

WHAT ARE THE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES TO FPL?

Here’s the great news: anyone with any sort of Fantasy Premier League experience should be able to pick up FanTeam’s game without issue.

The rules, scoring and prices are very similar to FPL, so skills – and indeed squads – are easily transferable.

It’s essentially FPL but with huge cash prizes. Given that paid entry mini-leagues are now strongly discouraged by the Premier League, the FanTeam game offers Fantasy managers a legitimate opportunity to make money from their management expertise.

As in FPL, managers build a squad of 15 players that includes two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.

A maximum of three players from a single Premier League team can be selected, with the budget for the initial squad set at 100.0m.

A starting XI is then selected for each Gameweek from that squad of 15.

One free transfer is allowed each Gameweek, with each additional transfer costing minus four points. Managers can roll a Gameweek transfer forward but can never have more than two free transfers in their locker.

FanTeam managers have two Wildcards to use, one for each half of the season. Unlimited free transfers can be used when the Wildcard is deployed and also ahead of Gameweek 1.

A captain (and vice-captain) has to be nominated every week; that player will score double points if they are handed the armband.

How to play FanTeam's €1m Premier League Fantasy game - a beginner's guide

All sound very familiar? That’s because the two games are largely the same – although there are a handful of differences to watch out for.

KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
  • Player prices can rise and fall based on form and in-game transfer movement but, unlike in FPL, a player’s ‘sell price’ is the same as their ‘buy price’.
  • Other than the two aforementioned Wildcards, there aren’t any chips in FanTeam.
  • More than one team is allowed per person, with each entry costing €25.

HOW DO PLAYERS SCORE POINTS?

Seasoned FPL managers should have no problem in adjusting to FanTeam and running a squad with its familiar scoring system, which is shown above.

KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
  • There is no Bonus Points System, which is replaced by plus/minus points if a team is winning/losing during the period a player is on the pitch.
  • Goalkeepers get 0.5 points for every save made, unlike the one point awarded in FPL for increments of three stops.
  • Committing a foul that leads to a free-kick goal or converted penalty is penalised by minus two points.
  • Midfielders and forwards get an extra point for completing the full match.
Win a share of €1m as FanTeam and Fantasy Football Scout join forces

We’ll be back over the coming weeks with a series of articles on FanTeam’s million-euro cash game, delving deeper into the player prices, fixture list and strategy.

Until then, head over to FanTeam and start tinkering with your team. As is the case in FPL, unlimited transfers are allowed before Gameweek 1 and the player prices don’t change until the season is underway.

    Do we know yet if there are any playing 4m defenders?

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Ferguson seems like the best bet

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Nobody is certain but people have been mentioning
      Ferguson (CP)
      Mitchell (CP)
      Douglas (Leeds)
      Johnson (West Ham)
      and that Everton guy Brant...something

  2. aapoman

    Depends on the fixtures and assuming M. Pereira costs 6.0 but how does this look?

    Ryan Button
    TAA Vinagre KWP Taylor Ferguson
    Salah KDB Bruno Pereira ASM
    Werner Antonio Davis

    Leaves 0.5 itb which I'm likely going to use to upgrade one defender to a 5.0 or gk to a 5.0

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      It looks good overall. Decent balance. Fixtures will decide though.

    2. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Decent that.

    3. Melon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Really nice, actually. I've currently got Doherty instead of Vinagre and Ings over Werner, but looking at this I'm really tempted.

    4. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      looks good, if Pereira is 6.5 then i do like foden at that price, even with pep roulette

    5. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Looks good..who is Pereira in your midfield though?

    6. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Promotion players aside, 6m for Pereira considering his attacking output makes him one of the tastiest budget options. He is WBA's attack.

    7. HeDoesntWantIt
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      I must be the only person who doesn’t like it. Defence and attack is poor.

  3. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thoughts on this Brunoless 3-4-3 draft? Can bench one of Armstrong or st max depending on the fixture. 0.5m itb.

    Ryan
    Taa pieters vinagre
    Salah kdb greenwood st max
    Martial ings Antonio

    Button Armstrong Walker-Peters ferguson

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Armstrong isn't fixture dependent nor absolutely nailed (maybe Hojbjerg's exit helps? But I don't think they affected each other's starts): https://www.transfermarkt.com/stuart-armstrong/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/130765/saison/2019/wettbewerb/GB1/verein/180

      ASM is more fixture dependent, but happens to be quite unpredictable: https://www.transfermarkt.com/allan-saint-maximin/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/272642/saison/2019/wettbewerb/GB1/verein/762

      Maybe just keep one for the long run and spend the extra funds on a rotating 4.5m D pair, then transfer the 5.5m mid if need be?

    2. rodzicsky7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 10 days ago

      I think Taylor is more nailed than Pieters. Both are at the same price.

    How's this for a 1st attempt, Bench is fodder

    Patricio
    Taa, ayling, doherty, Aurier
    Kdb, Bruno, Saint-Maximin, mane
    Jimenez, Mitrović

    Bench, button, Davis, Stephens bernado

  5. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    TAA VVD Robbo Vinagre (Taylor)
    KDB Mahrez Pulisic (Soucek Gordon)
    Jimi Martial Adams

    Nailed it. See you on the 12th.

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Pulisic injured and probably won't play GW1

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Will be Ziyech in the meantime but Pulisic is the one I want so he's in at the more expensive price for now.

        1. Houldsworth Hatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Fair enough mate.

  6. AJ24
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    It's a bit silly to do a team without fixtures but any intial howellers?

    Ryan, McCarthy
    Trent, Ayling, Vinagre, Saliba, Taylor
    Salah, KDB, Greenwood, Foden, Pulisic
    Jimenez, Antonio, Davis

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Looks pretty good. Puli injured but you can cover that if he doesn't make GW1

  7. Jordan.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    fairly inevitable in my works mini league this year people will have ederson/de gea or allison/pickford and justify it by saying they will have a good goalie playing at home each week,they of course never do well and it just doesnt agree with me that i cant really advise them to do it properly because other less concientious league members would like them to leave it as it is, of course they see the light eventually, but it does grate me to see workmates struggling with it,just thinking aloud....

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'm the same. I try to help a couple of them, but not too much. I still want to win!

  8. Kannbury
      3 months, 11 days ago

      4.0 4.5 (hopefully Ramsdale)
      Trent, Doherty, Laporte, Ayling, Taylor
      Kdb, Auba, Bruno, Soucek, 5.5
      Jimenez, Bamford, 4.5

      Thoughts?

      Maybe swap Bruno/Doherty for Salah/4.5 def?

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Bamford is shocking which leaves you light up front.

        1. Kannbury
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Can switch Bamford>Ings and Bruno>Greenwood, annoyingly could have Ings with money to spare at last seasons prices!

        2. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Benching headache for you my friend

        3. Melon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Defence is solid but I'd maybe downgrade a premium there to give yourself a little more to work with up top/in midfield. Just a personal preference though.

          Definitely upgrade Bamford.

          1. Kannbury
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Thanks, looks like Bamford will be going!

          All the teams have only 1 City attacker in them.

          Seems silly not to attack Cpal wk 1 if leaked fixtures are correct.

          1. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            If they really are correct and game will be played in 1st GW that is right:)

          2. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            The trouble is having 2 premium City means leaving another out and there's some uncertainty over minutes for Foden, Bernardo, Mahrez, Kun and Jesus.

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Im not imagining for one moment I will keep my team for more than 2-3 wks before I WC so Im targeting fixtures early on if they favor City.

              1. Houldsworth Hatter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                Fair play. Did that work well for you last season? I'm going with a more patient approach this year. Airways WC GW2 or 3 but I'm holding for as long as possible this time.

                1. Christina.
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  worked a treat. 73 OR by week 8 I think

                  1. Houldsworth Hatter
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 11 days ago

                    Well done! Mine usually fail - that's obviously me knee jerking and getting it wrong - so a change of approach and hopefully a more patient game.

          3. Wild Card this...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Leaked fixtures were not correct...both Manchester clubs starting with game at home etc...

            1. Ole.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Dude, no crowd...

              1. Houldsworth Hatter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                Maybe no crowd but if fans are allowed back in during October there'll be another clash somewhere further down the line. I doubt they'll have the clash personally.

                1. Ole.
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  Gw1 fixture is not further down the line. They could easily get back on track by then.

                  1. Houldsworth Hatter
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 11 days ago

                    Correct but they'll have to clash at least once more to get things back on track mate.

                    1. Ole.
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 11 Years
                      3 months, 11 days ago

                      The clash is not a reason to denounce the gw1 fixtures is all. As there is no police issue there.

                      1. Houldsworth Hatter
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 11 days ago

                        No what I'm saying is there'll have to be another clash somewhere later in the season. They can't do that due to policing.

                        1. Ole.
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          3 months, 11 days ago

                          Dude I understand exactly what you're saying lol. Hence the "they could easily get back on track by then." Sheesh.

                          1. Ole.

                            3 months, 10 days ago

                            Your statement is incorrect. If it happens before October hey could do it. So there.

                            1. Houldsworth Hatter

                              Chill out man! Off course it could. I'm simply of the opinion that it'll have been a dummy run. If it wasn't there would have been a much bigger thing made of it all over the press. I may be right I may be wrong. It's just an opinion.

                            2. Ole.

                              3 months, 10 days ago

                              The press did report on it a fair amount. I don't mind if you think they're fake. I'm just explaining there's no fundamental problem with them. I don't care if they're real or not.

                              Could they not just do

                              GW1 Utd Home City Home
                              GW2 Utd Home City Away

                              GW? Utd Away City Away

                              Balances the books without any future clashes?

                              Yea exactly

                              3 months, 10 days ago

                              So it's not even another clash, it's an away away that it leaves...

                              3 months, 9 days ago

                              But my comment you referred to as incorrect was indeed correct. Let's move on. They are not at home or away together at any point.

              2. Wild Card this...

                • 11 Years

                Still...not likely...
                Of course, I might be wrong but let's wait few days and see...

            • 2 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I don't see myself starting the season without Mahrez (switch to Pulisic if he turns somehow turns out to still rotate like a spinning top when Foden's gone back to left CM in Silva's absence), and I know I'll start with KDB/Sterling as a regular captain, depending on if I see Sterling get a lot more assists in those pointless preseason games, showing his creativity might be back and helped by Agüero replacing Jesus

            So it's a definite yes for me, except if they start with a horrid block of fixtures, of course

              Yes, Mahrez @ 8.5m looks a steal even if he is rotated especially if fixture favour them early on.

                Yeah, but they still got Sterling, Bilva, Foden & Torres. All will get time on the field.
                To me Pulisic, Ziyech, Greenwood and Son are better options at that price imo.

              2. Salarrivederci

                And i know you wrote above, that you don't expect to keep your team longer than a few GW's.
                My three years of playing have resulted in GW 3, GW 6 and GW 2 WC's.
                But this season is different in many ways.
                18a 19 and 18b as an example.
                Teams playing in europe will have a crazy schedule.
                Transfer window prolonged.

                I really do think it could be an advantage to set a team for the long run this year. Just my take on it ofc.

                  I think the first wildcard has to be used by GW16 this season.

                  1. Salarrivederci
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 10 days ago

                    But that would still (somewhat) help you set up for 18a 19 18b.
                    Atleast way better than a GW2-3 WC team is prepared for that kind of madness. 😀

            • 7 Years

            Yes, two attacker should be minimum unless they play Liverpool. Had drafts with KDB&Sterling or KDB&Foden. Kun/Jesus would be better for team balance

          Has anyone done a mock draft on fpl? If so can you share the data? curious about player pick numbers past round 6

        6. aapoman
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          By the way what is the reasoning behind having ASM over Armstrong? I'm currently on the same boat but if the fixtures are similar I think Armstrong might be the better choice.

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Southampton is a better team with better attack so maybe Armstrong > Saint Maximin

          2. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            See my links above. Armstrong seems a better bet based on his restart form, being fixture proof, and his team scoring a lot more goals against anyone than Newcastle. You'll have to accept some unpredictable bench appearances though... And don't bench Armstrong

        7. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          None talks about Jesus. Is he a good option or Kun will be back soon and start playing?

          1. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Think they'll be sharing the minutes this season.

            3 months, 11 days ago

            he will be a decent pick when inevitably aguero is broken again ,atm 0.5 extra and tony is a no brainer if anybody is thinking of getting jesus ,that would be my take on it...

            FanTeam profit. Pretty much any entries over 40k of the 75k are profit for them. Less entries the better value for us.

          So do we think the fixtures on FPL for GW1 was merely a test or a fixture leak? Surely a test, United and City at home on the same weekend?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

          Unpopular opinion: Rather have Sterling + Rashford than KdB + Bruno.
          Absolutely smashing it in Expected Fantasy Point per minute last season.

          McCarthy
          TAA, Doherty, Vinagre
          Sterling, Salah, Rashford, JWP
          Jiménez, Wood, Antonio

            It may be unpopular but it could easily pay off. Making your own decisions is the way to go. I think it's good.

          2. aapoman
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            It could well pay off. My reasoning is that with the 1m I can get from Rashford doesn't really make that big of a difference in my team AT THE MOMENT

            1. Sune
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Well, thing is that I would prefer Rashford over Bruno if they were equally priced as well.

              1. Salarrivederci
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                You would?
                Well go for it I say.
                Can't remember the exact numbers, but I think Bruno scored around 2x Rashford in his 14 games.
                I don't expect Bruno to return twice as many points as Rashford, but I'd expect a higher & a more steady stream of points 😉

                1. Sune
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 10 days ago

                  That's probably true. But looking at Expected Fantasy Points tells a different story, especially after converting Rashford's numbers into midfielder scoring.

          3. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Could pay off. The OoP midfield could be gold with: Salah, Sterling, Greenwood, Rashford.

            1. Sune
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Let's hope 🙂

              None of them is OOP.
              All Wingers are now classified as mids.

              Oop is relative to other people in the same category

              1. Sune
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                OOP or not - their goal threat numbers are through the roof.

          4. Sanchit
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Did you look at Non penalty numbers?

            1. Sune
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              I sure did.

              1. Sanchit
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                Is that the correct approach though?
                Try adding 7.5 xG to Bruno.. because I suppose United will get 10 penalties across the season.

                1. Sune
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 10 days ago

                  Using Rashford's xG non penalty and Bruno's xG makes their Expected Fantasy Points quite even. And MUN's penalty rate was insane since Bruno's arrival. I Believe it will regress a bit.

                  1. Sanchit
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 10 days ago

                    Hmm makes sense then.

                    1. Sune
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      3 months, 10 days ago

                      Bruno for sure the safe bet though 🙂

          5. Jay Jay Okocha
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Don't forget to subtract pens from Rashford's numbers...

            1. Sune
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              I didn't forget.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Looks good. I'm leaning towards Rashford over Bruno, too. Also gone with the JWP pick.

        14. JohnBlack
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Which one looks better? Currently on A.

          A) Werner, Mitrovic, Fernandes, def4.5m

          B) Martial, Antonio, Ziyech, Robbo

          1. jimmy.floyd
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            A

          2. Salarrivederci
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            I would go with A, but I also like to get in the penalty-takers 😉
            Don't fancy Antonio anyway, so in my opinion you get the better ManU asset, the better Chelsea asset and the better cheap striker. Ofc Robbo beats any 4.5 defender all day 😉

            1. Sanchit
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              This.
              Robbi beats the 4.5 but you can cover it up with the three upgrades

          • 2 Years

          Thoughts on this first draft...

          Ryan
          Gomez Taylor Vinagre
          Salah Auba KDB Greenwood ASM
          Werner Mitovic

          Nyland; KWP Ferguson Davis

          1. UnluckyXI
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            I think it's a risk not having one of Trent, robbo or Doherty as they provide both value and sheer volume of points.

            I'd be tempted to sacrifice one of you big 5 dependent on fixtures to upgrade one of your 4.5 defs

          2. Sanchit
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Do you need so many big guns? How often will you captain Auba?

            I hope Leeds or Palace where we can rely on him to start.
            2 points is all I want 🙂

              • 3 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              You’ll be getting more than 2 points

            That would make the 3rd spot for LFC a dream come true 🙂

            Hopefully Leeds, as he will be nailed and Klopp wanted him to go there instead of Swansea this past season.

                Trouble is, he's mostly shite.

                And he is more of a DM than a CAM since Bruno arrival.

                Bruno, Martial, Greenwood and Rashford are better FPL options.

                Issue is he plays in pivot 2 mate.
                Not close enough to goal to get any FPL points

          Why are Villa players priced so low. FPL predicting they be relegated?

            GK and defenders - wouldn't expect many above 4.5. Grealish is 7.0, don't see why he should be higher. Who else in midfield is priced low? Forwards...do they actually have one?

            They are not really good enough or none of them have huge potential

            They aren't overpriced. In terms of its per game relative to their price there's a lot better options out there.

            El ghazi if he can nail down a position looks like the best value but a lot better 5.5 options than him at 6.0

                the real Jota is only 6.5

            Grealish at 7 is overpriced ! Better not talk about anyone else.
            They ain't good enough.

            I have 2 of them though ....

            Nyland & Davis 🙂

            They were't relegated last year only because Goal Line Technlogy malfunction happend in SHU game

              That is such a flawed logic. If that happened in the final game it would make sense but happened weeks ago. Going into the final game vs west ham if they needed a win they wouldnt have tried to hold for a draw like they did...same goes fir shu game if they had gine behind.... Things would havent played out the way they did

          Which option? (If European teams play gw1)
          A) Salah + Foden
          B) Bruno + Pulisic

          See very few teams with Pope.
          Even at 5.5, he'd have the highest points per million.
          In 17/18 season his PPM was even higher.
          Am I missing something?

          1. Goonerly
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            He was 4.5 both those times, an absolute steal.
            At 5.5. he's not that much of a bargain

            When it comes to transfers like this, you have to compare the duo where you're investing your 1m.

            4.5 and Bruno vs Pope and Rashford

              I'd rather have the latter there tbf

                  Currently on McCarthy and Rashford. I'm hoping for a downturn in pens and a continuation of point scoring from towards the end of the season where I believe Rashford would come out on top as a mid.

            Is that pts per million just overall or have you factored in game time?

            In terms of points per 90 per million McCarthy and Martinez do better and Ryan is close and they all allow you to go hunt for players that provide value and big numbers

          Are price changes in Fanteam similar to FPL, or more/less volatile?

          Going with a 442 I think (with rotation between Taylor, Ritchie, Barnes to be a 352 when appropriate):

          Lloris/ 4.5
          Alonso Doherty TAA Mendy Taylor
          Fernandes KDB Barnes Ritchie Mooy
          Aguero Mousset Wickham

          Aguero might be swapped for a different premium forward if it looks like he won't start with a view to bringing him back in if it looks like he has his place nailed.

          Slightly different from some template teams...thoughts?

            Wow that is a different team. I would not be able to sleep at night owning those players 😀
            Agüero, Mousset, Mooy, Ritchie, Barnes, Mendy, Alonso.
            1 week they start and 1 week you're down to 6 players + Wichham 😀 hahaha

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Some major problems

            1. Lloris should be set and forget, 0.5 being wasted on backup keeper

            2. Alonso's done, even if Chelsea don't sign one of the many LBs they're linked with, Azpi and Reece likely to be first choice

            3. Mendy gets rotated

            4. Barnes and Mooy aren't very good, same with Mousset who isn't even first choice at SHU who have about 5 strikers

            5. I'd love to start with Aguero but given his current injury and City maybe missing GW1 it's such a big risk

          Of course fixture dependant (particularly week 1) but is this bench just too weak to make this first 11 viable?

          McCarthy
          TAA Taylor Vinagre
          Salah KDB Greenwood Foden
          Werner Martial Mitrovic

          Nyland Webster Gordon Ferguson

          Thoughts about Che Adams at 6.0m? Seeing Mitrovic over Adams in a lot of RMTs is suprising as Southampton are a far more attacking team..

            Both a trap I think

            • 7 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            With the form of Ings, will Adams feature regularly having to battle with Long for a place. Mitrovic is likely to be nailed if fit.
