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.

    Hey guys,

    No fixtures yet but weighing up this team...

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    TAA Vinagre Salina Taylor (Ayling)
    Salah KDB Bruno Maddison (Soucek)
    Martial Antonio (Davis)

    Could change...
    Taylor ---> Robbo
    Maddison ---> Foden/Traore
    Martial ---> Wood

    Thoughts?

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is it a risky move to start the season with no mane or Salah? Is there another Liverpool player worth considering?

    1. AgentFern
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Salah close to essential imo

    2. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I have bottled the 3x Liverpool defense and got Salah. Only those 2 worth considering.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I've rejigged to have Salah for GW1 because of no KDB, Sterling or Bruno. I will get the Manc premium of my choice cGW3 and fill my 3rd Liverpool defender spot.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I might go all season with no Pool attacker. Better value at the back for pool.
      So I think I’ll go triple pool defence and then use these as my premium attackers Auba,KDB,Sterling,Kane,Bruno

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Trent and Robertson probably essential for me if you’re going without Salah.

    5. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Depends on fixtures.

  3. Berbs
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Replies to RMTs tomorrow even though fixtures are out

    'There's no pre season games to go off yet'

  4. Hairy Potter
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Any thoughts on this initial draft?

    Ryan/Nyland
    TAA, VVD, Doherty, Vinagre, 4.5
    Salah, KDB, Rashford, Greenwood, Soucek
    Mitro, Wood, Davis

    Depending on fixtures I may do a bit of shuffling to get in Mahrez instead of Rashford or Greenwood.

    1. AgentFern
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Mid too weak considering your front line imo

    2. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      i like it - i'm not entirely convinced that Rashford is worth the money, could downgrade him and have a punt on Werner up top if that's affordable

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah, Rashford and Greenwood are two I'm most unsure of. Rashford being a mid and with his goals/assists from last season makes him tempting. Mahrez would be in my team, but don't trust Pep rotation. TBH, I've never seen Werner play, but his goals last season do definitely bring him into consideration.

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          if Sancho doesn't come in then Greenwood would seem like a bargain, i'm a bit fed up with Pep roulette so thinking of just having KDB, i'd definitely have Mahrez if i thought he started 90% of games, but his minutes from last couple of seasons show that isn't the case, too many other midfield options there - for 1m more i'd have Bruno over Rashford, and then there's players like Ziyech/Pulisic who might be worth considering as other alternatives

          we need those fixtures 🙂

  5. LangerznMash

    Is KWP nailed? I thought Yan Valery was highly rated.

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I should hope so, he looks a miles better player.

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah, looks that way. Valery was pretty poor last season, always looked like the weak link when he started.

    3. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Doubt they would sign KWP permanently if they weren't planning on starting him IMO, and doubt he'd sign without assurances. Did v well for them last season especially post-restart.

      Valery could come back stronger I guess - not sure whether the incredibly strange personal life (alleged) revelations had an impact on him (almost certainly did).

    4. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Hmm so a highly likely starter bur not 100% nailed.
      Want my 4th £4.5m def to be nailed for rotation reasons to go with Ayling, Vinagre and Taylor.(all of which I'm surprised aren't valued at £5.0m).

  6. mcmd11
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Anyone else put off by United players?
    - Haven't score open play goal last 2 games
    - Must be knackered
    - Form is more important than ever heading into this season
    - Martial is now a forward less bp and goal points
    - Surely they will get fewer pens than last year so Bruno not as appealing?

    1. AgentFern
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Can only see United getting better and better but new signings will impact certain player ie greenwood

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Bruno got 8 goals and 7 assists.
      4 were penalties.
      He still had 4 goals and 7 assists in 14 games!

      Martial would get more BP for every goal scored.

    3. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      they definitely need some rest, Bruno in particular, but i still think they will be a good source of points

    4. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Sort of. I've radically overhauled my draft to omit all Manc players from my starting line-up (I had 6), keeping one or two on the bench, on the assumption that they start late. Even if they do start on time, I'll monitor their first matches to see how fresh they are. Then, depending on fixtures, I'll introducce them 1FT at a time, possible focusing on City first.

    5. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Bruno on pens. Good enough.

    6. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      1. Knockout games are way more different than league game. The opposition defend with a lot more motivation. We still got numerous chances and should killed the game.

      2. How can't hey be knackered after 1 month rest? And all of them were rested for 3 months during COVID.

      3. There is no form for any team to go by in GW1 just fixtures.

      4. Martial is not the only United attacker and he can justify his 9m price tag pretty comfortably.

      5. There's nothing to suggest we will get fewer penalties. Our style of play is such that opponents our forced to make decisive tackles in the penalty area. Even 10 penalties which is considerably less than last season would be huge for Bruno.

      1. mcmd11
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        1. Copenhagen are probably at best a bottom 3 PL side look what how many you put past Bournemouth when they were fighting for their lives
        2. Since the restart their key players have played more minutes than other sides since every game was a must win. Also mentally tough to lose Europe and FA cup semi-finals
        3. The turnaround is so quick last seasons will be fresh in minds
        4. FPL wise only greenwood, martial and bruno are options
        5. The fewer penalties the less appealing Bruno is

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          How can you forget Rashford? I don't understand how people are so blinded by his mixed form. He would have scored 200 points last season as a midfielder... He's nailed on. He's basically OoP. A proven 200 point scorer for 9.5m is a steal.

          1. mcmd11
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            He's 9.5 and for 1m more you can get Bruno and for 0.5 less Martial. His form has been poor 3 goals in all comps since the restart

          2. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Not on penalties anymore, tends to sit deeper in matches to allow Shaw to overlap. His role feels like more of a left midfield creator than wide forward. He's a wait and see for me imo.

          3. Sune
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            +1

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Again Rashford, Martial, Greenwood, Bruno, Pogba, AWB etc are not 30 year olds. They are all very young and one month of rest is more than enough for them.

          Also watch Rashford make a mockery of his 9.0m price tag if you think he's not an option.

          1. mcmd11
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Rashford 3 goals since restart has looked very poor. Wouldn't go near the United defense only option worth considering is AWB but no attacking returns. Greenwood is an option for his price

    7. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Nope.

      They have created an absolute ton of chances, hit the woodwork a bunch against two very decent teams. They also have 30 days off before the start of the season. That's a pretty long break.

      I don't see why they'd get fewer pens. If anything, the change to full FIFA protocols for VAR might result in MORE pens.

    8. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      They were quite literally top of the premier league table since Bruno arrived

      Unbeaten in those 14 games & kept 9 cleansheets

      *Those 14 games also included the team directly above them (City) as well as the 4 teams directly below them (Chelsea, Leicester, Wolves, Spurs)before the “ThEy oNlY PlaYeD ReLEgaTiOn FoDdEr” crew arrive

    Is soucek currently the best 5m player in midfield?

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah I would say so, by an absolute mile.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Richie is about as good. Would deffo rather have him if he has better fixtures

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Sorry Brosstan but I just don't think that's true. Ritchie is basically a LB for Newcastle that takes the odd penalty and isn't even nailed on. Compared to Soucek who had the 6th highest xG of any midfielder post restart, he's not even close imo.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Doesn't he take set pieces, corners?

            1. Hairy Potter
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              If he's on the pitch. Lots of talk about us getting Hendrick on a free and some paper talk about Ritchie and Gayle being offered in player swaps with Bournemouth.

            2. Soto Ayam
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Soucek? I don't think so. He's usually on the receiving end

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Yes, with Ritchie second.

  8. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Which is more important, form or fixtures? Leave your last seasons rank too, makes it more interesting!
    I think fixtures, and my rank was 300k

    1. Sandesh_

      Fixtures...29k

    2. Andy_Social

    3. Tomerick

      As someone who owed a lot to Vardy last season, form. 3152.

      1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Think I’ll be doing similar this season with just sticking with an on form striker. Last season I took hits almost every other week to get the “good fixture“ forward, and it never worked.

          Nah

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      What usually happens with me is form when I'm leading and fixtures when I'm chasing.

    6. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Both, depends which player/team.
      Someone like Antonio/Wood with bad fixtures is not such a great pick even with form.
      And equally even with good fixtures without form they can be garbage. (Even Kane and Sterling guilty of this for instance).
      So I guess I’d lean towards form being the most important for most players, bar a handful such as KDB who is good any scenario.

      6.7 mil

    Salah or Auba?

      Both

      Mo

    3. Ser Davos
      • 5 Years

      As per their price, I think they're pretty much equal. Case can be made for either

      1. Eastman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yes. Both would be ideal but too expensive. Better case for one with KDB and probably Rash or Bruno

    Update on TSB:

    Pulisic 8.5%
    Sterling 8.2%

    I can't get over how insane this looks

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Pulisic won’t make the first 2 gws

      2. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Okay, I'll explain my surprise:

        Pulisic has a flag on his name. A clear flag that should put the casuals off as well as the serious players who know it's not a good idea to have an injured player in your GW1 team

        What's crazy about this, to me, is that he somehow still has more owners than Sterling. The same Sterling who scored 20 goals last season and a million goals in Project Restart

        For them to even be close in ownership, with those two circumstances, is insane

        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Not disagreeing with you but a lot of teams right now are auto-select teams or placeholder teams with the players people might want in general, I've seen a lot of posts on here selecting Pulisic as a placeholder to see how they might structure things upon his return. Once fixtures are released more people will start building 'actual' teams and his ownership *should* go down

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Yup. That makes a whole lot of sense and explains it. I forgot the impact of auto pick there

      If you Pulisic is fit and Chelsea have good fixtures watch that ownership shoot up.

      Sterling is purely because of the number of options in midfield.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Possibly a lot of teams are currently autogenerated, with owners coming to sort them out when the fixtures are up.

      when Pulisic gets fit and starts playing i'll be interested, i'd have Sterling but for that price i feel happier with KDB/Salah, give me another 7m and sterling's in 🙂

    If Utd sign competition for Greenwood I think I'd probably go to 5 at the back

    Doherty or Robbo possibly hold a little more appeal than the other 7.5 & below midfielders tbh

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      5? What's your team

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Currently

        McCarthy
        TAA, VVD, Laporte, Vinagre
        KDB, Bruno, Greenwood
        Jimmy, Ings, Mitro
        (Nyland, Taylor, Gordon, lol)

        +1.5 ITB to jump from Jimmy or Ings straight to Werner if he lights up GW1 or Antonio/Wood/DCL for Mitro if/when headbutts a referee

        If Werner has a quiet start he'll possibly drop in price quite quickly & can be a nice value pickup a few weeks down the line

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I've prepared my draft to cope with the Mancs sitting out GW1. I have only 2 in my starting squad with subs to cover. You have those 3 in midfield and only one likely playing sub. Once you get past that obstacle, you're good to go. Very good, I'd say.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      I'm all in for 3 premium def if the fixtures warrant it. Need two out of Pool/Wolves/City to have great fixtures.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah so many options back there... and up front!

    3. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      My team structure falls apart with Greenwood getting competition. That would mean Foden or VVD... Hence, VVD

      But an already not-so-flexible 4-5-1 becomes a zombie team 5-4-1

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I'll probably go 2 in midfield

        It seems very all or nothing in midfield this year

        There's about seventeen 12.0's... then there's Greenwood/Pulisic below them... then there's just... not much else

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          *2 in midfield if Greenwood gets competition

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Whilst all the conversation is centred on premium mids, I went out the box and looked into what i could do without more than one. I've currently got a terrific 5-2-3 drafted!

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              That's exactly where I'll be going too if Greenwood's start gets put in doubt by Sancho or A.N.Other big name RWF!

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years

                But with two big old premiums in the "2" 🙂

      No , doubt anywhere was hacked as most databases only keep hashes of passwords so they are not in clear text. It was simply down to the user not taking security seriously with weak passwords. With social engineering it isn't so hard these days to fugure out passwords from social media posts etc

    If anyone's at all interested in some LFC opinions (from a fan!)

    - Tsimikas will do the usual thing for a new signing and take a while to get up to rhythm + the pressing style etc. No immediate threat to Robertson I don't think, and the recent training videos showed Tsimi looking UTTERLY exhausted! Bless him.

    - If no 'attacking' signings, I think we'll see a bit more of Shaqiri especially in home games vs opposition who don't pose much of a threat. Weird season last time peppered with injuries and at one stage I was convinced he'd want to move on, but actually seems happy enough...and critically I think some of the other first team lads really like playing with him when he's on pitch (IMO slightly different to Origi who isn't as good of a footballer and Minamino who will still require time/patience).

    - Gomez first choice, Matip backup until any injury or suspension (not sure if that's a concern for anyone).

    - Tighter packed schedule could see a couple of instances where the final day team selection is repeated & the standard 'front three' come on with 30 mins to go.

    1. mcmd11
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      As a LFC fan who do you think will have better season FPL wise, Salah or Mane?
      Salah looked a bit wasteful since restart in front of goal

      1. Shatner's Bassoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah he did, and as an owner myself it was a bit frustrating! I think he outscores Mane this season overall, but there will be periods where Mane is clearly the better option - up to individual managers if they make aggressive swaps between them or just ride out the waves.

    2. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Where do you see Shaqiri coming in? On the left of a 4-3-3?

      With back to only three subs, can't see the final day selection with all three of Salah, Mane, Firmino out from starting eleven. Maximum two of those rested, the third one has to start, imo.

      1. Shatner's Bassoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I think he can go either side of the front positions in a 4-3-3 happily - we've used Ox there sometimes and he clearly doesn't like it (and has said as much). Another thing which I think we might see just to mix things up a bit & introduce variety in team sheets to mess with oppo managers is a 4-2-3-1 type thing where again Shaq can be used... not saying it'll be a frequent occurrence, just in some "plum" fixtures to be aware of.

        Yeah see what you mean - perhaps 2/3 get rested and unleashed with 30 to go.

  17. Og

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      None will start. pick the one with lowest ownership so they don't get price falls.

      I made the mistake last season of starting with Button and Greenwood and both of them fell once they didn't start.

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        The annoying thing is I went for ones with lower ownership and they dropped too

    2. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Brewster if he goes out on loan. Davis otherwise

    3. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Brewster may be loaned to AV. I would take him if loan will be confirmed

    4. Bielsa's Bucket
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      None. Michael Obafemi £5.0 (SOU) is your closest, but he isn't a starter either. Talk of him moving to Aston Villa, so I'm watching this space at moment.

    Games been called off in France now due to players catching Covid, for all of our planning this season could turn out to be one giant crapshoot with potential for matchdays to be called off out of the blue.

    1. Andy_Social

      Scotland too. One more rule-breaking player and the whole league will be shut down.

        Scotland's mental, Hibs were able to train in Edinburgh whilst Hearts couldn't but Hull City were also allowed to train in Edinburgh.

    3. moz_1983
      • 8 Years

      I'm starting to think that an early wildcard may not be a decent strategy, might fancy holding onto it in case there's a spike in player cases later on.

      1. Andy'81
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I just don't think it's something we can plan around unfortunately, we could very easily see a situation like last season where all games are cancelled and a free W/C issued again.

    Arsenal target Gabriel is left footed. Which makes me think that he’ll partner David Luiz if they play with two CB’s.

    Is soucek an option as starting midfielder?
    Purely based off his price the extra money that could be used opposed to a 6.5 and under

      He will probably flop, but everyone will have him so we all go down together!
      So yea Soucek is a viable option based on his likely ownership.
      You never know he might come good

      He's currently first on my bench but I'd be happy to start him, yeh.

      Will be on everyone bench when he scores 15 points in GW1.

    SomeThing feels good about having Aguero here.....

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    TAA VVD Doherty Taylor (Dallas)
    Salah KDB Greenwood ASM (Soucek)
    Aguero Mitrovic (Davis)

      Isn't it too risky to have 2 liverpool defenders? I would sell VVD for a cheaper option and invest the money in your attack or midfield maybe

        Too risky having the highest-scoring players in the position? Come again?

        Very well-balanced squad there.

          Cheers AS....Would you change anything??

      2. Roy Rovers

        Thanks but no.....was even looking at Robbo instead of Doherty

      Looks good, was just pondering Jesus and curious what it was like to own him last year...

      1. Roy Rovers
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah had Jesus for a few GW.....but the wrong ones!!!!

        Looks fab if Aguero could remain injury free and a guaranteed starter.

        1. Roy Rovers
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Cheers mate....will watch how Aguero goes and news over next week.

        Very nice if Aguero is fit and ready to go.

        1. Roy Rovers

          Thanks IM.... hopefully he is fit....low ownership at the moment.

      Which is a better option?
      A) Pablo Hernandez
      B) Matheus Pereira (when he is added to fpl)

      1. LangerznMash
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I'm a Leeds fan and would say Pereira.
        Pablo is amazing but his minutes are massively managed now. Probably play a max of 1600 minutes all season and rarely a full 90

      2. Melon

        Pereira.

        B. Everything goes through him. And Pablo is too old, his minutes will be managed heavily
