How to Play Sky Sports Fantasy Football – A Beginner’s Guide

With the start of a new Premier League season moving ever closer, we switch our focus to Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

£50,000 is on offer to the game’s winner in 2020/21, with cash prizes of £5,000 and £1,000 dished out to those managers finishing in the other two podium places.

If you’re new to the Sky game or merely in need of a refresher of the rules and scoring system, we will go over the basics of the game in the article below.

HOW DO I PLAY?

Just like in Fantasy Premier League, managers select a team of players that will either earn attacking, defensive or bonus points in an attempt to score more than friends, colleagues and/or the rest of the world. However, this is not a squad-based game: you choose simply a starting XI and do not have a bench.

The budget, like in FPL, is £100m. There is no quota for players from the same club, however.

Game Weeks run from Friday to Thursday with managers allowed transfers in between Match Days, allowing the maximisation of potential points by bringing in an asset yet to play for one who has already been involved that week.

Instead of one free switch per Game Week as per FPL, the Sky Sports game allocates 40 transfers that can be used at any time during the season – with a limit of five in one Game Week – creating the need for a more long-term strategy.

‘Overhauls’ (the equivalent of Wildcards) are also available in Sky Sports, with two being allocated every season. The first one becomes available to use following the completion of Game Week 4 and remains an option until the deadline for Game Week 6. The dates for the second one will be announced in due course.

In the Sky Sports game, you can name more than one captain in a Game Week so long as the players in question are in action on different days. For example, if there were fixtures on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday in any given Game Week, a Sky Sports Fantasy manager could name a different skipper on each of those Match Days, providing they did so before that day’s deadline. Managers can also schedule their captains ahead of a Game Week, too.

HOW DO YOU SCORE POINTS?

The points structure is largely similar to FPL in Sky Sports Fantasy but tends to award more points for the actions mentioned below.

ActionPoints scored
Starting XI2
Substitution appearance1
Goal scored by a goalkeeper/defender7
Goal scored by a midfielder6
Goal scored by a striker5
Goal assist3
Clean sheet by a goalkeeper (must play 60+ mins)7
Clean sheet by a defender (must play 60+ mins)5
A penalty save by a goalkeeper5
Man of the Match3

CAN MY TEAM LOSE POINTS?

Unfortunately, just like in FPL there are a few ways to lose points too.

ActionPoints scored
Missing a penalty-3
Every goal conceded from the second goal onwards-1
Each yellow card-1
Each red card-3
Each own goal-2

HOW DO BONUS POINTS WORK?

Just like in FPL, there are additional points on offer for other events in matches – although the structure is slightly different, as you will see below:

Tier 1 ActionPoints scored
3 saves made (GK only)2
3 tackles won2
60 completed passes2
2 shots on target2
Tier 2 ActionPoints scored
5+ saves made (GK only)3
4+ tackles won3
70+ completed passes3
3+ shots on target3

HOW DO I PLAY AGAINST MY FRIENDS?

There are a number of different ways to compete against others in the Sky Sports game. You can create or join a Free League with your friends and colleagues but there are ways to win money too.

Sky Sports can actually administer your money league for you to avoid any awkwardness post-season. You can choose the entry fee (either £2, £5, £10 or £20 per person) and the prize structure beforehand and Sky Sports will take care of the rest.

    3. Miguel Sanchez

      Bruno, Greenwood and possibly Martial - Wildcard

      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Why worry about gw2? Gw1 will give us more info than preseason putting you in a better position to decide then than now.

    6. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Liverpool mid + Soucek to Rashford, Greenwood (-4)

    7. Bob Vrabkab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Bruno (already got Martial) in for either Son or Ziyech. 3m banked. Kev can come in for Mo at some point soon after

    8. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Bruno

    9. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Salah > Fernandes for definite. I'm even considering toughing it out GW1 with not only Greenwood on the bench but Martial as well. 😯

    10. Siggy in the Middle
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Greenwood if Sancho isn't signed. The Man himself if he is

    11. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Greenwood from the start.
      Salah to Fernandes week 2.

    12. Marmalade Forest
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Greenwood from the bench

    13. Team17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Salah > Lingard (TC)

    14. Indpush
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      None because baring any urgent news to have to make changes to my team, I will already have Bruno and Greeny on my team from the start of GW 1.

    15. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Wildcarding GW2. Probably gonna be Bruno, Martial and Greenwood unless they sign someone else.

  2. Ser Davos
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    If you were (hypothetically) going to do the two premium captain hokey cokey, it means having a set and forget team elsewhere. What are people's favourite set and forget options?

    4.5 4
    TAA VVD Doherty

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Might go with that with Leno or Martínez

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      I like this 3 defs but you can’t be flexible with money and get the city and united mids because you’ve tied the money up in def. I’m going for 2 (TAA + VVD) and work on doh over the next few gw’s. Currently on salah and auba but auba will be KDB so that’ll be my set and forget and captain between them

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      If a 4.0 Defender isn't available I'll have to get 2*4.5 to avoid defensive transfers.

  3. Garlana
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Any good or too many new guys from Chelsea?

    McCarthy
    Taa, vinagre, Saliba(or other 4.5)
    Salah, son, auba, ziyech, maxim
    Mitro, Werner

    4.0, 4.5m (lampety?), Ferguson, Davis.

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Werner is a enough save the Ziyech money for greenwood

      1. Garlana
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        Planned to move him on for greenwood later, if he does well then I can keep him

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      KWP

      And yes too punty

  4. davies
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Do we expect KDB + Bruno to increase in price before GW3?

    1. Berge20
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Surely Bruno.

    2. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Probably Bruno would but I think KDB will be ok

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Before GW2 is a possibility

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      They will

    5. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      I am expecting KDB to fall. 🙂

    6. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Bruno will probably be 10.6 a day after deadline.

      1. Bonuspunkte
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        Is that even possible? I assumed trfs would only start calculating after the deadline has passed

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 hours ago

          Yes, day after deadline.

          1. baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 19 hours ago

            There is a reason why I plan to bench him gw1 😉

        2. Marmalade Forest
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Yeah. Soon as first deadline hits, thousands will bring in Bruno for GW2 before Saturday night/Sunday morning price changes.

  5. BENOIT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    All this talk of midfielders, but I'm tempted with 3 strikers.

    Predicted points for the whole season?

    A) Mitrovic
    B) Vardy
    C) Martial
    D) Werner
    E) Wood

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      A. 130
      B. 180
      C. 190
      D. 210
      E. 140

      1. BENOIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        Werner great value if he does that!

      2. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        I can't figure out the Werner love 😮

        Other looks okay yeah.

        1. The Hunt
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 19 hours ago

          He's German, he's quick and he scores goals so that basically makes him a shoo-in!

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 18 hours ago

            Thank you

  6. Ings_is_the_king
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    How’s this looking?
    McCarthy, 4.0
    TAA, Doherty, Davies, Justin, Taylor
    Salah, Auba, Ziyech, ASM, Greenwood
    Ings, Mitrovic, 4.5m

    Should I get Werner in for Ings and downgrade Ziyech, but to who?

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Werner, closer to the goal

      1. Ings_is_the_king
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        Ok, but he isn’t proven in the Premier League

        1. The Pesci challenge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 hours ago

          Yeah but he’s a lot of time with the team now, I would just keep an eye on how he looks in preseason, if he’s no good then him out to martial. Simple

          1. Ings_is_the_king
            2 months, 19 hours ago

            Cheers.

  7. marcus2704

    My current team. Downgrading (?) Son to Maddison allows me a third striker for a 3-4-3 formation. Typically, I WC after GW3. What do you guys think?

    McCarthy
    TAA - VVD - Doherty (Douglas, Ferguson)
    Auba - Salah - Maddison - Saucek (Stevens)
    Ings - Jiminez - Mitro

    1. DA Minnion

      Nice team.

  8. 1justlookin

    Was thinking of getting ben crellins transfer planner, just watched the video of how it works.

    My head hurts.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pointless waste of money

    2. Bonuspunkte

      Have you got a link?

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Its all based on a rating for each team from 1 to 10. Doesnt matter what fancy work you do if the inputs are flawed, and they are very much flawed. Use RMT if you want something with value

      1. Lanley Staurel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 16 hours ago

        Absolutely

    4. I Must Break You

      I just built my own based roughly on how his works. Took about 6 minutes.

  9. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year

    Bellerin at 5.0 is tres juicy

    1. 1justlookin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Vesric.
      Maitland niles

      Rotation risk

      1. Kimmich
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        Wouldn’t be suprised to see AMN shipped. Linked with a few clubs in the PL and doesn’t want to play RB.

    2. Marmalade Forest
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Yeah. He’s their best right back by miles. If he played 38 games he’s great value at 5m.

  10. 1justlookin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Are there any nailed on Spurs defenders?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Davies should be.

    2. Bonuspunkte
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Toby

    3. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Toby

    4. 1569Tippins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      League 1 lol

    5. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Dier

  11. Kimmich
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    Trent - Vinagre - Saliba (KWP - Ferguson)
    Salah - Auba - Son - Maddison - JWP
    Werner - Mitro (Brewster)

    .5itb for Greenwood if he’s starting or can get Martial for Werner and bring Ziyech in. Community shield dictates Saliba, other than that pretty happy with the squad. Routes to a lot of players post GW1.

    1. ash and swanson inc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      very decent and a bit different, must admit I am not keen on maddison I woudl be tempted to downgrade to get doherty/robertson/spurs or someone to play 4 at back , or get barnes n change for next tfrs

      1. Kimmich
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Barnes is a interesting pick only thing that puts me off was his game time after the restart.

    2. Young Lingard
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      I like this a lot

  12. davies
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Robertson worth the 0.5 over VVD?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Not for me now, no

    2. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      No, VVD gets similar points, best value. £0.5m cheaper.

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      At the start yes. During midweek matches no

  13. JohnnyWark
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Need 0.5 from somewhere for Auba to KDB and Son to Fernandes?

    1. Bonuspunkte

      Just get Rashford

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Incredibly unbalanced team

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 hours ago

        Sell Ings and upgrade defense

    3. Jotangs
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Bin Mitrovic.

    4. Bonuspunkte
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      I just checked the actual team.. ignore advice and stick with your gut, I like the team as long as one of the 4m defenders start

  14. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Alli looking good at 8.0. Will be a nice differential.

    1. Eat my goal!

      Nope

  15. Steevo

    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    McCarthy | 4.0
    TAA | Doherty | Vinagre | Justin | 4.0
    Salah | Auba | Son | ASM | 4.5
    Jimenez | Ings | 4.5

    0.5ITB - where would you spend it?

    1. luk46
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      would leave it there, maybe Ings/Jimenez > Martial as your transfer

  16. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    In the sky sports game can you change your team without using up transfers up until the first game week same as fantasy football?

    1. lugs
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      yes

  17. Young Lingard
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Really considering the greenwood bench GW1 if sancho isn’t signed. Buttt is could this pass ?

    McCarthy
    Robertson; Vinagre, Justin, Ferguson,
    AUBA. Salah. Armstrong
    Werner. Kane. Mitrovic

    Nyland, Gordon, Mitchell, GREENWOOD

    * plan to work on basis most start for their clubs and move auba out for sterling GW3 with one other free transfer and .5 to boost options. I’m unsure it’s risky ..

  18. luk46
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    you can only pick one manc option - who would it be? Its either to leave money itb to do Son > Bruno or play a 343 with Martial and no Son for me...

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      The penalty taker.

  19. Siggy in the Middle
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 hours ago

    Davies at 5.0 looks like a great option if no other LB is signed. A second season Mourinho side who now have a proper DM should haul a decent few clean sheets

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Agree

    2. UnitedFan
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Thoughts on Dier?

      1. Bonuspunkte
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Dier is pants, mourinho will eventual drop him

        1. UnitedFan
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Seen a Spurs fan make a thread concluding that Dier is nailed and Toby/Sanchez will rotate. He also said Dier has better goal threat as Davies doesn't advance as much under Mou?

          1. Bonuspunkte
            2 months, 18 hours ago

            He is a rubbish spurs fan..

            Every spurs fan I know says Dier is sh1te and they abuse him everytime he plays

            1. UnitedFan

      Him vs Dier is a little tricky but Bavies seems a little higher on the upside

    Is Leno going to make it GW1, or will Martinez play?

    1. lugs
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      50/50 but i think Martinez might win it due to being better with his feet

    2. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Leno it appears

      Hard to say, even whoever starts the CS doesn’t help as it could be a way of placating the Cup keeper this season. The only way we can really tell is from if Arteta explicitly says.

    Ok forget the blanks in GW1. I'm in a draft league, which option looks best for the season.

    A) Ramsdale - Ake - ASM - DCL
    B) Rodak - C. Taylor - Soucek - Martial

    Thanks in advance!!

    What’s the state of Luke shaw atm Utd fans? Is he nailed to play if fit ?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      For sure

    2. UnitedFan
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 hours ago

      Yeah. Him staying fit is another issue though.

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Wait for news.
      For shaw he's first choice

    4. Bonuspunkte

      He could do with losing a few pounds but is our best left back..

    For those of you planning an early wild card, think on this. For the first 10 games Man City are ranked bottom for fixture difficulty. For games 11 to 20 it's the complete opposite - loads of juicy fixtures, especially at home, against weak opposition. GW11 would be perfect for a WC.
    If that's not enough to convince you, Arsenal, West Ham and Liverpool's fixtures also take on a much more favourable hue.

    I know that's so diffcult to retain discipline and hold on to that WC, but there could be big benefits for doing so this year - especially as the transfer window closes well after the first round of matches.

      But there are benefits now too.

  24. Babit1967

    So this is the team I’m going with, I’ve kept 1.5 mill itb for Son to Fernandes gw2, no idea how I’m going to fit City in but will think about that down the line

    McCarthy

    Taa Tierney Davies Vinagre

    Salah Son Ziyech Armstrong

    Kane Werner

    Fodder Ferguson Davies Gordon

    1. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Son & Kane/ Ziyech & Werner double i think is extreme

      1. Babit1967
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Maybe mate, I will go son to Fernandes gw2 and I have the option of ziyech to Greenwood down the line

  25. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    In the event that Wolves sign a LWB/LB and Vinagre is no longer an option.... will you be trying to fit in Doherty or another Wolves defender? Cheers

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Already on Doh so I'll just remove vinegar for another 4.5 like kwp

      1. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        You on 2x LIV 2x WOL in def currently?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Yes

      2. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        This

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Yeah I think I will as a set and forget scenario alongside TAA + VVD

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      There was a list of good players who did well last year (ppm) and Doherty was the only one available at same price as last year. I prefer to have him from the start. The only issue is gw2, but with these fixtures it's impossible to have everything without any compromises.

  26. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    Bottomed.

    Found the team I want from GW2 onwards

    Ryan
    TAA | Vinagre | KWP | C.Taylor
    KDB | Auba | Pulisic | B.Fernandes | Son
    Mitro

    Button | Ferguson | Davies | Wickham

    Worth to WC in GW2 for it?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Absolutely not

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Start with that team with placeholders for KDB Bruno.
      Take hit & pocket WC

    3. Bonuspunkte
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Is Pulisic fit?

  27. cigan
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    How does this look for a first draft?

    Couple of points:
    - No Chelsea for now as they have lots of new players which could go either way. But might switch both strikers to Werner/Mitrovic
    - Salah or Mane? Gut says Mane, head says Salah
    - SaintMaximin or Keita? SM has the minutes but Keita looks like he could be a golden differential

    McCarthy Ryan
    Trent Doherty Justin Taylor Ferguson
    Auba Salah Son SaintMax Stephens
    Ings Jimenez 4.5

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Lovely team but Taylor not playing GW1 so you'll have to start Ferguson or Stephens?

      1. cigan
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Yeah on Ferguson atm

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          I wouldn't plan for that as absolutely no idea if he plays

  28. noahzark22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    Ryan
    Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Walker-Peters
    Aubameyang, Saka, Noble, Salah, Ritchie
    Kane, Vardy

    Button, Ferguson, Davis, Vinagre

    I've cracked it. Solid first two weeks then transfers

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      That midfield is horrible

      1. noahzark22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        until Noble and Ritchie score against each other.

    2. Ted just admit it
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 hours ago

      I like the different thinking. A punt makes it fun

  29. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    How's she looking? I want nailed players only.

    Ryan
    TAA VVD Doherty KWP
    Salah Auba Son Soucek
    Ings Mitrovic
    Button Stephens Ferguson Davis

    GW2 Son to Fernandes
    GW3 Auba to KDB

    Leaves me with 0.5 ITB to upgrade Soucek or Mitro if needed then I'll be all set to win FPL.

    1. luk46
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      looks quite good, just wouldnt like to play one of the 4-5m week in week out

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Soucek looks fantastic value especially for first 3 and I have MITB to upgrade if not.

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Works if you're confident Chelsea are rubbish.

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        Don't think they'll be rubbish but there'll be rotation with Werner Tammy Giroud Ziyech Pulisic CHO Mount Havert etc

    3. cigan
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      I like it even though it might a bit def-heavy

  30. Corgzzzz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 18 hours ago

    Who is the better pick.
    A, Mitrovic.
    B, Adam's.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      A because nailedness

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        I’ve currently got both, from everything I’m reading it seems like Adams is more or less nailed though ?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          Probably first choice at the start but they have long and Obafemi so all it takes is a few poor performance from Adams while long/Obafemi scores from a cameo and Adams could be benched again

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      I'm also looking at same call. Mitro fixtures aren't excited. I think i might get Adams

      1. Bonuspunkte
        2 months, 18 hours ago

        I think mitro’s fuxtures are great

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 hours ago

          He might be early bandwagon if his ownership wasn't so high. Adams has nice stats in his last starts though (compare to Ings) and plays for better team.

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      Hopefully we get Brewster at 4.5 starting.

    4. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 hours ago

      B; SOU a much better team. Mitro may have potential if FUL bring in some reinforcements. Not hopeful though atm ...
