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.

    I didn't watch many games after restart. Did digne take less set pieces towards end of season?

      Lucas Digne top of the page discussion let's go!

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        He has a surprisingly girlish scream when tackled hard.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE

      Just corners from memory, I think Siggy took most free kicks

    Morning all, how about this for a different approach to the Manchester problem in GW1 if you want 3 Utd?...

    TAA Rob Johnson Mitchell Ferguson
    Zychech Salah
    Obafemi Adams Mitro
    (Button Rash Greenwood Fernandes)

    Depends on the 4.0 defs starting and maybe Obafemi going to Broom or Villa but rather than worry about price changes to the mids, I already have them ready on the bench. Plus, I will have the cheap players, of which, some could do well. I will look at reverting back to 4-5-1 so the cheap strikers are ultimately place holders for better defenders.Unless of course, 2 of the cheap strikers do well. Also 0.5 itb to fine tune this depending on friendlies.

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      If you want 3 ManUtd and 0 ManCity then why not. I'd look at maybe bench Greenwood and get KdB & Fernandes/Rashford with 2ft.

      1. Geriatric Unathletic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        This is my current plan.

    2. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I thought about this, but if you go through who you would play instead of them, then weigh up whether they are likely to score 8 in the first week then I think it's better just to take the hit if you're that determined to get three from GW2.

      Personally I'm looking at just Fernandes and Greenwood in GW2 for a -4 then KDB in GW3

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Obafemi is unlikely to start and so is Ferguson (and if he starts it will probably be in place of Mitchell). So you run the risk of playing with 9 on GW1 with that team.

      I think WC is the best strategy for those who want to get a lot of Manchester players right away.

      1. NEXUS-6
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Agree. May as well get a good XI and WC in GW2.

    4. NEXUS-6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      That’s one way to guarantee yourself a horrendous start to the season.

    5. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      And Liverpool wins 4:1 in GW1.
      Salah assist only.
      You can even end up with only 4/5 players on the pitch.
      Suddenly, you’re happy to be within top 7 million at the start of the season.
      Think this is worst plan so far tbf.

    Am I the only one going for mané instead of salah?

    Still rate mané higher than salah on the eye test even with even price tags.

    Yes salah might be on penalties but mané tend to so better on the BPS

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Mane tends to be better away from home so yes you could argue he’s a better prospect but salah is greedier would therefore he will just shoot all day and eventually they go in. You nailed it though the pens are the deciding factor

    2. pingissimus

      Coin toss

      Leeds I suspect will be really awkward opponents. Foresee a game with fewer chances and those coming perhaps on the breakaway. Possession will likely be fairly even and Leeds will try and play a lot in the Liverpool half. Not a standard promoted side at all.

      1. The Pesci challenge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        No Leeds will run around like they do under Bielsa and Liverpool will just play around them. I expect a high scoring game

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          We’ll see

          Leeds may of course be entirely outclassed. But they were the class of the championship by a distance - had they had a goal scorer they would have steam -rollered it.

          White is a big loss but they’ve kept the team together and will only be adding a few - not doing a Villa or Fulham. They’re an extremely well drilled side and know their plan inside out.

          What interests me is how they will present a challenge by playing up the pitch. They won’t be sitting back and waiting for waves of Liverpool attacks.

          1. Fit of Pique
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Imagine if against the odds Leeds actually win that first match.

            However unlikey, wonder if it'll see people piling on their assets in expectation of them being the new Wolves (or more)

            Could see the likes of Bamford, Hernandez and Ayling in everyone's GW3 wildcard 😉

    3. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ill never go for Mane over Salah again unless Salah is injured.

    4. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Mane could always best Salah for points, but last season was Salah's worst, and he still came out on top. My money would be on Salah reverting to a higher score this year

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Going Mane over Salah at two key points last season lost me 50 points in 2 weeks.

      Not gonna do it again.

      Also, Salah is just flat out superior when they're the same price. Last season the justification was that Mane was cheaper.

    6. NEXUS-6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      With Mané having such low ownership compared to Salah I like the idea of rolling the dice there. If he bags a couple and Salah gets two points you get a nice early advantage over the hive mind.

    7. Yankee Toffee

      Go both!

    Today's task for me is to see what happens if I don't get any Manchester players in in week 2 🙂

    Fixtures aren't so very compelling really and this sort of has the air of pre DGW planning on here - with the wrinkle that the DGW players being planned for don't actually have the second fixture!

    Also as AS pointed out earlier - there could be considerable angst when placeholders for Manchester fire in week 1

    Just looking

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Personally I think you could do without city in gw2 when they play wolves and then get in gw3. Its united that’s more of the head scratcher as they have palace and although palace can be tough to break down, United look very good when they’re on it. I’m waiting to do the Manchester moves in gw3 and I can do it for free or a -4 for a band wagon

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Palace were wretched in defence away to top 6 last year. Not really a function of injuries etc but just the overly passive set up. Don't really expect that to change this time.

        The Palace game is good one for United for sure - I'll almost certainly get one in anyway. Just want to look at other options - haven't delves that deep into fixtures yet.

        1. Fit of Pique
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Ideally it's a wait and see for United against Palace.

          United looked very tired towards the end of the season and the goals had dried up (though not the chances)

          I think it's a gample to pile in on United assets before seeing what kind of form they start the season in

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Surely Greenwood benched in GW1 is a reasonable strategy with budget mids like ASM, Armstrong and Soucek with decent GW1 fixtures

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        That's what I'm currently on with AWB benched too. Just want to look at alternative solutions.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Pingissimus, would you mind letting us have your thoughts on the Palace defence?

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Waiting on preseason to see who is back from injury. I'm expecting this right now

            Mitchell Kelly Dann Ward

            Fairly sure Dann is around even if not on FPL and think Ward will start season at RB. Ferguson has played LB for WBA but says himself he's more comfortable on the right. If PvA is out it's between him and Mitchell. I'm guessing Mitchell there - it's his natural side and he knows the defensive set up and hasn't been injured for months as Ferguson has

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Thanks. Yes I noticed Dann had vanished, assumed he'd retired actually. If one of the 4.0s is a starter would be a big help. Couple of sides that Palace rotate pretty welll with.

              1. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Dann is on updated Palace website and there are a couple of other valid sources saying he extended quite a while back

      2. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        My first draft had this, however there is the risk of Sanchez being signed after GW1 deadline which would scupper everything. Better to take a hit and hope to make that up with your GW1 placeholder

        1. Hedge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          *Sancho!

        2. nonprophet
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          That deal is off now apparently

          1. Hedge
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yeh, seems to be, but you never know whether it's just brinkmanship. Just one more thing into the equation that makes me think a placeholder plus a hit is the better option

        3. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          United will sign a winger this summer IMO.
          Sancho or someone else.

          1. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I've sussed your cunning plan, Amey, you're trying to put the frighteners on us Greenwood owners.

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Let's face it mate.
              If United don't sign anyone, he'll be a dead pick just like Taa 🙂

              From United's point of view, Sanchez is off the books. Lukaku left last season with No real replacement. I can't see United not signing a winger this summer.

              One of Lingard and Pereira also looking like leaving. Mata is too old to rely upon now. All pointing towards a winger signing !

              1. Old Man
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Sadly, I agree with you. It won't make the decision with what to do with Greenwood any easier.
                I'm glad we don't play you early in the season - it would have been embarrassing with our defence.

                1. Amey
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Surely some investment going to happen in your team as well

            2. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Natural response is to point out they’ll sign Grealish to rest Bruno in the plum fixtures 🙂

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                For 120m£ 😛

                  Deal done then. Overpriced and English 🙂

                  1. Amey
                    • 2 Years

                    Good looking too

                      • 1 Year

                      Any record of falling foul of the authorities?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Or as Amey is on Martial to point out Greenwood is a natural cf who will overtake Martial

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                In a season or two for sure 😉

                He's a natural #9

      3. Fit of Pique
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        But they're likely to sign a RW.

        In this scenario you've then benched a non playing 7.5 midfielder for GW1 - possibly at the cost of points elsewhere - and given yourself an unnecessary transfer

        His price means it should be straightforward to bring him in around GW3/4 if you still want him.

        He's also not going to be a captaincy candidate Vs Palace, so don't need to worry too much about others having him for that game. Not worth the risk for me.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Think you could hold on till week 3 or could do the bench Greenwood thing for week 1

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        W8 bringing in ManU assets until after home game vs. injured defensive Palace? I think you’ll miss out on big hauls and pricerises

        1. NEXUS-6
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yet Palace won at OT last year. Albeit United didn’t have Bruno.

    4. NEXUS-6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I think it’s sensible. My initial plan is to save a FT in GW2 and make three moves in GW3 to bring in some City & United boys.

      On the other hand I may just make Ings/Vardy into Martial in GW2.

      The panic, benched premium assets and the wasted early WCs present an opportunity for people able to play without fear I think.

  5. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Medium to long term, A or B please chaps?

    A) Doherty | Greenwood | Mitrovic
    B) Vinagre | Fernandes | Soucek

    Thanks

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A would be 4-4-2 and B 4-5-1

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Prefer A, a bit more balanced

    3. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A, though would try and get Bruno in at some point.

      1. The Pesci challenge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Could do that if you have son for 8 gw’s and then do a couple of transfers to do son>Fernandes but for now greenwood is enough if united don’t get Sancho

        1. Bleh
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yep I’m leaving enough funds personally so I can do Son > Bruno in GW2. Have Kane as Spurs cover.

    4. Kun Tozser
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      B for Bruno, would rather play a 4.5 defender over Soucek though, fixtures are tough

    5. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Definitely A. If Greenwood is first choice, he will be as essential as TAA in my opinion

      1. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        However I'd want a draft with Fernandes too

          Oh don’t worry I have plenty of them haha

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Which is partly the issue!

    6. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      A to start

    7. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      a for me.
      More balanced.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years

        Thanks everyone!

    Does Adams start ahead of Long in the Saints starting 11?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes.

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes I would think so, Adams got better towards the end of the season

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Think so

    4. Bleh
      • 3 Years

      Great, thanks all.

    5. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years

      Yes, Obefemi also likely above Long in pecking order now.

  7. GuenDoozy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Bottomed:

    First RMT for the new season:

    McCarthy Nyland
    TAA Tierney Davies Vinagre Ferguson
    Salah Auba ASM Soucek Stephens
    Kane Werner Mitrovic

    Soucek and Vinagre in rotation.

    Thoughts appreciated

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Vinegar not replaced then you are there

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Think son’s a better option than Kane personally but looks good as is

  8. Kun Tozser
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Those 0.1 rises could hit a few people expecting straight swops to get United and City players in GW2 / GW3.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah, I would expect Bruno and KDB to both go up. The others may just be safe.

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Safe?
        Greenwood will rise 0.1 before the end of GW1. The front 4 United will all rise before the start of GW2

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          All four you reckon? I certainly think Rashford will be safe. If Werner blanks GW1 then Martial could rise. Let’s see.

          1. Salarrivederci
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Ye. Such a large fanbase. Always much activity first few GW’s. Even more with the blank. I expect Greenwood and Bruno to rise 0.2 before GW2.

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              True - I may be on Martial, Greenwood and Bruno (c) for GWs 2-3

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yup, squeaky bum time

    3. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Just keep .5 itb to cover it

      1. Kun Tozser
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Don’t see many doing that though, plenty with a 5.0 bench mid rather than 4.5 for example

      2. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        this.

      3. NEXUS-6
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        This.

    4. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Will have to make those transfers quick, if you don’t keep some cash ITB...

    5. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I think that you're right. You'll either be forced to make a very early transfer in GW2/3 or make an extra tranfer which might involve a hit. Having said that, sensible hits early in the season, just to set your team/squad in the right direction, is not necessarily a bad thing.
      Maybe a prudent 0.5itb is the way to go?

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I’ve already planned a hit before the start of GW2.
        I swap out 2 of: Son, Ziyech and Werner and I bring in 2 of: Greenwood, Rashford and Martial.

    6. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I can see that as a problem only if you’re selling let’s say 7.5 for player that was 7.5 and now is 7.6.
      Most of people are selling 8 for 7.5 and 12 for 10.5 etc.
      Not the issue in my plans.

  9. davies
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Which option?

    A) VVD Bruno
    B) Greenwood Rashford/Son

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      A

    3. tomasjj

      A

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Don't want VvD to start the season. Doherty + Bruno.

  10. Think
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Just few changes from my first RMT and it all goes down to Toby+Madison+Werner or TAA+Ziyech+DCL.

    Full team looks ...
    McCarthy Nayland
    TAA Egan Justin Vinagre Target
    Salah Auba Ziyech Armstrong Stephens
    Kane DCL Mitrovic

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not feeling DCL at all

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Prefer the Werner option

      1. Think
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I also prefer the Werner option but someone around here suggested for TAA ownership and thus thinking of this option.

        1. The Pesci challenge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          There is this. Anyway you can get both and downgrade one. Feel both will be great assets to have for the season

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      TAA not optional for me. He's in at that price. Don't like DCL - could be dropped for Kean. DCL > Adams and use the money in defense.

      1. Think
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I already have Armstrong & don't want double up on saints, can downgrade DCL to non playing FW and upgrade Stephens to 7 mid may be Madison.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Works too.

        2. The Pesci challenge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Prefer Barnes for Leicester

  11. masyuris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Is Robertson taking freekick also?

    1. Think
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Corners for sure.

    2. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Takes some from the left to whip them in. TAA tends to take ones with a shooting opportunity

  12. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 28 days ago

    What’s the benefit of VVD over Gomez ? Is it just a goal threat or is Gomez a slight rotation risk?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      You have answered your own question

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I’m happy to have Gomez just for the CS but not if he’s at risk of being rotated

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Both. Don't even consider Gomez in my opinion.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Cheers old man

    3. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      VVD is much better value for the price.

      Goal threat and nailed.

      Look at points according to price.

    4. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      More nailed and goal threat. 4 goals, 4 clean sheets and BPS could make 45 points over the course of a season

  13. tomasjj
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Not so keen on Everton, but is Siggi primed for a revival?

    Ancelotti seems to play him more as a pure attacking midfielder now, as he did when being most productive a couple of seasons back.

    Cost 7.0.

    1. Think
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Last season I started with siggy + very good fixtures (it didn't went well)

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah but it’s Everton, I am keeping clear of them all season I think. Just don’t think it’s going to be a great season for them

      1. DantheManinaPan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        "all season" is a strong phrase to be bandying about

    3. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Is FPL royalty and was in every squad this time last year... last 6 seasons 154, 158, 181, 96, 182, 95.
      Really depends which Siggy shows up, positioning & role in team are key factors.

      1. Wild Card this...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        181, 96, 182, 95...there is a pattern - Right there! 🙂

    4. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I've gone with Siggy before for his potential revival and it crashed. Would definitely monitor him, but not one for a punt from the start

    5. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Blackpool absolutely bossed them yesterday and Everton had at least half a dozen of their strongest players playing. They will be a bottom half team for sure this season.

  14. The Pesci challenge
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    VVD + Armstrong
    Or
    Ziyech + 4.5 def
    Already have Werner?

    1. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Think VVD and Armstrong is better price points. Not convinced on Armstrong but think there will be a decent option at that price to jump to

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A

      1. Gingerman
        1 month, 28 days ago

        VVD Armstrong more solid

  15. JohannaAdams10
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    BB team set:

    Martinez, McCarthy
    TAA, Gomez, Justin, Diop, Vinagre
    Salah, Son, Aubameyang, Armstrong, Saint-max
    Ings, Antonio, Lacazette

    What people think?

    Gomez and Viny my only concerns

    1. JohannaAdams10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Sorry Yarmalenko instead of son

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Rather sucek than yarm

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      No concerns about Laca and Martinez

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Lacazette and Diop. Otherwise looks fine

    4. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      What you planning for GW2?

      1. JohannaAdams10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Wildcard for gw2 so can include Man Utd and Man City players

        1. JohannaAdams10
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          So players like diop and laca will only be set for the first (hopefully) easier games

  16. Dacra
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Is 2 4.0 defs too much?

    Mccarthy (Nyland)
    TAA - Vinagre - 4.5 (Ferguson, Branthwaite)
    Salah - Auba - Son - ASM (4.5)
    Werner - Ings - Mitro

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Won't be too much if one of them play

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Could be, hopefully we'll know by the end of preseason

    3. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      One too many 4.0’s, ones ok as you can work around it but 2 and they don’t play is hard work and you’re then having to concentrate on getting one of them out which means downgrading someone to upgrading the 4.0. Personally I would downgrade mitro or Ings and spread the money around

  17. KGFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Anyone know about Leeds.
    Read things on Reddit that they are an attacking team and not only can they score but it won’t be a walk in the park for Pool. Is that really the case?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes

      1. KGFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Interesting... thx!

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      We're the best side in Champ by far, but I also saw Fulh beat them last year. If they are a bit off, think Liv could maul them.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Were not we're

      2. KGFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        So more like boom or bust... I’m assuming the pressure of PL and playing against Pool might be too much.

        1. The Pesci challenge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          This

    3. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Personally I think it will be a walk in the park. I think Liverpool will play around them and Leeds will be chasing the game. If they start the season with just bamford they’re in trouble

      1. KGFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Cool, thanks

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Bamford is a drawback for sure but they share goals around a lot given their patterns in attack which involve several players getting into the box.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Interesting one for me is that TAA and Robbo may be given little space to operate in

      Whatever happens they won’t sit back and give Liverpool the freedom to attack. It probably comes down to how their Uber pressing game works - that’s their forte. Think Southampton and add a little.

  18. Zim0
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    With the value in the cheaper united and chelsea attack do you think it's viable to go only one big hitter in terms of their price because i think both of these teams players could end up being big hitters too and u could get 7-9 premium players that way i think.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes if they all fire, one prem is fine if you are prepared to permacaptain

      1. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Doesn't even need perma captain. Could be 3-4 captainable options in the £8-10m range

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Perhaps yeah - chop and change super premium based on a run of captainable fixtures.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yes that's what I'm thinking 🙂

    3. Gingerman
      1 month, 28 days ago

      If you've got faith in Utd and Chelsea options it could work, risky business though especially with the new chelsea boys.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yes but I'll be happy and ahead of everyone if it works out 🙂

    4. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeh think this will be a theme of the season, the mid priced options. Add in Jimenez and Ings and you lots of options in that bracket. Keep an eye out for my community article in the coming day or so...

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years

        Okay thanks 😀

  19. KAPTAIN KANE

    Mason Mount anyone?

    1. Yankee Toffee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Not for me

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yup - I like him at that price, Frank favourite and should start first few until Pulisic is fully fit and Havertz is up to speed

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Thanks both.

        Miguel do you think he’ll still be nailed? I’m struggling to think how they will line up, with or without Havertz

          First choice XI looks set to be:

          Keeper
          James/Azpi T.Silva Zouma Chilwell
          Kante Kovacic
          Ziyech Havertz Pulisic
          Werner

          Replace Havertz with Mount if he wasn't to sign for whatever reason.

            Hopefully 😛

            Agree with this being the best XI.

                Great cheers, and no it’s fine - nothing like too much information/data!

    3. KGFC

      Not from the off but one to watch
      Going with Ziyech who is probably nailed for dead ball duties. Easy downgrade to Mount if it is working the other way.

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Think he might be reduced to all purpose MF back up this year

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Hmm possibly, how do you see them lining up with their current roster?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          New signings and Puli in attacking slots. Rumours of Kante leaving so maybe deeper role if starts at all.

    5. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Nah sorry, Chelsea have spent well so far and Chilwell’s signing for Chelsea next week so mounts going nowhere near the goal this season. If they sign havertz as well then mounts sitting deep with kante

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        No need for an apology haha, I was just wondering considering him as a short term option. The attacking signings they have made did make me wonder as you’ve said.

    6. Visionaries
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes, great value

  20. Yankee Toffee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Thoughts on Bellerin? A steal at 5.0 if he starts.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not a fan of Arsenal defense, and he doesn’t appear to be the attacking threat he once was.

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Cheers Kaner!

    2. Gingerman
      1 month, 28 days ago

      If he starts regularly and doesn't get injured I really like the look of him. Some great totals couple of seasons back. Prefer Tierney as think you'll get better attacking returns but if you need the .5 Bellerin is an option. Hopefully Arsenal def will tighten up a bit, he's in my team for now.

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Thanks lad!

    3. Werkself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      The defensive steal at Arsenal, if there is such a thing, will be Martinez at 4.5.

    4. KujaliaFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Saliba and Martinez are the best value Arsenal defenders.

      Leno might regain the Number 1 spot though.

  21. Visionaries
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Thoughts?

    McCarthy
    TAA, Ferguson, Justin, Vinagre (Taylor)
    Salah, Auba, Son, St Max (Greenwood)
    Werner, Adams, (Davies)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Some chance you won't have 11 out in GW1

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Decent, swap Taylor to Lamptey so you have an XI if Ferguson doesn’t start.
      Burnley first 2 fixtures not great anyway

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Or at least the first in GW2 (away to Leicester)

  22. Dacra
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    How much do we think Foden will play?

    I keep being tempted..

    1. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Too much of a headache for 6.5

    2. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Wait and see for me. If he starts 2-3 of the first 4 then I'll be strongly considering him

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        This

      2. KujaliaFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        If he plays their first game, I'll get him in for GW3.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A lot more than last season which could be great value at that price. I think Foden each week with Soucek on the bench may be my approach.

      1. Dacra
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah, that's kinda my current thinking.

        Mccarthy
        TAA - VVD - 4.5 - 4.5 - 4.0
        Salah - Auba - Son - Foden - Soucek
        Werner - Mitro - 4.5

        352 or 442 depending on cheap defenders fixtures.

      2. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yep that's what I've been thinking too. Effectively Foden as a 7.0m option but with decent chance of points off the bench when he doesn't play.

        Would Soucek get enough extra points in the right weeks over a £4.5m though?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I personally think Soucek will be the cause of a lot of benched points this season but am willing to start with him and adjust my strategy as soon as we have more info on how he plays.

  23. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Any player in any position for 6 million or less that is better value than Doherty?

    I think I´m getting him in from the start as my other premium defender with TAA.

    1. Hedge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I think there will be, but working out who it will be at the start of the season will be harder, so am going Doherty in a 4atb form the start as it stands

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I’m looking at TAA, VVD and Doh as a set and forget for the season. You’re right can’t really find a better £6mill option, you could argue mitro but he won’t get cs points

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I've decided to do that and stick. It'll have ups and downs but come the seasons end it'll be worth a big chunk of points injuries permitting.

    3. KujaliaFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Pereira (WBA) and Brewster(Unknown).

  24. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Chelsea’s team (on paper at least) is excellent this season. Especially if they sign Havertz, Chilwell and a decent centre back. Serious value this season.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Going forwards yes. Could still concede plenty.

      1. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        They need a decent GK and centre half.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          And a different manager too if they want to tighten up

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Looks very good for them this season, spent the best so far this window. Wouldn’t be surprised if they disrupt the top 2 party

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Chilwell barely improves that defence, still have kepa aging azpi and terrible cbs

  25. Cometh The Aouar...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    If QPR's Eze signs for Fulham I will be considering him strongly. Don't think a price point of 5.0 to 6.0 is that bad...

    1. NEXUS-6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah he’s a fun player to watch. 5.5 would be nice but more likely 6.0 I suppose.

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah would be a very good move for us, I think you’re right he will be 6 if he came in which is a no for me, as I said above Doherty is a better option for the price

      1. Cometh The Aouar...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Already have Vinny from the Wolves backline.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 28 days ago

          You can have both. Double Wolves defense with an easy fixture run is a no-brainer.

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Really hope he's 5.5, would prefer him to Armstrong/SMax perhaps

  26. Manh Kieu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Wish Sky FFS would be available in Vietnam..

  27. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Lamptey nailed ?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah. Great option

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes I would think so now, I think he is on a bit of a promise of playing to get him from Chelsea

    3. NEXUS-6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I’m sure I read Veltman can play RB. Potter loves to rotate however I think Lamptey is first choice.

    4. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Think so, yeah

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Thanks all, feels like the 4.5 options are falling away a bit and slightly worried by the transfer window staying open into the season so looking for someone nailed

  28. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Morning all. Who scores more to begin with until WC time

    A. TAA + Rash
    B. VVD + Bruno

    Going without TAA very risky, not sure if VVD can cover that. Bruno, arguably better asset than Rash though

    1. NEXUS-6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Toss a coin.

  29. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Vinagre Saliba
    Salah Aubameyang Son ASM
    Werner Mitrovic

    Button Soucek Mitchell Davis

    1.5m in bank for Son to Fernandes

    1. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Surely you play Soucek GW1 then bench him?

    2. Brawlers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I like it, very similar to mine. But I´m going Ryan and Walker-Peters, not McCarthy and Saliba. I think Saliba will be on the bench in the start of the season.

  30. Cometh The Aouar...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Miguel I see that you're considering the Wildcard in GW2. Why is that?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I always end up WCing around GW3 so why not plan it in this time instead? I want Bruno/Greenwood/KDB from GW2 and chances are I will play BB in GW1 cause it’s a chip I never score too much from and feel forced me to make suboptimal decisions later in the season.

      1. Cometh The Aouar...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I hear you, particularly on the BB chip use. I used it on the last day of the season and got next to nothing from it. Have you seen or heard many others taking the same strategy as you?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          A couple are. A lot had success with the free transfer and then bench boost strategy after the lockdown but that was an exceptional circumstance. Only in GW1 can you make unlimited moves and BB in the same GW. The caveat being your squad value is lower and you have limited data to go off. But th Manchester clubs being out means there are enough value options elsewhere to use to balance out a decent BB team in my opinion.

          1. Cometh The Aouar...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            And judging by your previous finishes in the game, I'm willing to take your advice on board as I want Man Utd and Man City players from GW2 but also want to take advantage of the first couple of GWs with the likes of Arsenal.

            What's your opinion on Pereira and Vardy?

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Pereira from WBA or Leicester?

              Vardy I’m not sure on and how time is taking its toll on his legs. Happy to start without and bring in if he hits one of his hot spells. Players like Vardy and Son have historically gone on spells of scoring so easy enough to time and get in once they hit form and have the fixtures.

              1. Cometh The Aouar...
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                WBA. I think the same about Vardy. I think he might regress this season.

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Disagree, if anything Vardy's going to make a mockery out of his age yet again.

              2. Cometh The Aouar...
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                What's your current GK set up? Why is everyone going for Nyland?

                1. Miguel Sanchez
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  McCarthy and need another 4.5 GK for BB which is proving tricky.

                  Then McCarthy and 4.0 thereafter

                  1. Cometh The Aouar...
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    If you're willing to push a further 0.5 more - Ramsdale?

                    1. Miguel Sanchez
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      Good option but fixtures get tricky after GW3 and I will prob need the 0.5 down the line.

                2. Andy_Social
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Just code for random 4m. Can be a last-minute decision.
