    Best 8.5 mid excluding the Portugal lot?

    1. Karan14

      Insigne

    2. Meimei

      Perisic but playing England

    So finally caved in and decided to play euro fanatsy game.
    Wanted to have a mental rest from it all but got bored pretty quickly.

    One question for those who analysed rules and scenarios in more depth, is the heavy chip startegy (target gw 1, limitless gw 2, wildcard gw3 and unlimited transfers before play offs) the best way to play this game ?

    1. Hawk
      • 5 Years

      This strategy is heavily dependent on the assumption that the player will pick a round 16 team where most of the players will qualify for QF.

      The safer strategy imo is target gw1 with half an eye on gw3 (if possible), limitless gw2, and only use wildcard in gw3 if needed. I hope to save wc for the QFs if I can

      In order from aggressive to conservative.

      LL-WC-WC-hope
      LL-hope-WC-WC
      hope-LL-WC-WC

      It really comes down to what you think the value of each round is.

    Thoughts on this updated draft for MD1 - Insigne and Berardi double up
    (assuming both play which we will know pre- deadline) too much?

    Will be playing Limitless chip in MD2.

    Donnarumma
    Kjaer Denayer Wijndal
    Insigne F Torres Zieliński Berardi Alaba
    Lukaku Depay

    Hradecky Ronaldo Bednarek P Torres

      atm I have 7/15 of those

      Really like this team, pretty much my team. Still looking at alternatives for Alaba though.

        change him in a 4m mf and spread 1.5m around.
        Thats what I did.

          I'm going for slightly riskier picks in the 3/4/5 slot and hoping to rotate them around in 3/4/3 - 4/3/3.

          Currently have Eriksen/ Berardi/ Torres/ Zielenski/ Nego.

      2. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Read on article here that there is decent chance of Alaba playing left wing, decent punt if so

    3. schlupptheweek
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Unless there's injuries or someone looks unlikely to start based on friendlies, I don't really see any need to change it as it is really solid. Alaba is the main compromise but there is nothing wrong with starting him.

    4. Meimei

      Nice team

      maybe doubling up on Italy is too much, instead double up on the Dutch ?

      Im too afraid picking Denayer I think they might go with

      Courtois
      Vertonghen-Vermaelen-Alderweireld
      Castagne/Meunier Dedonker Tielemans T. Hazard
      Two of Carrasco-Meertens-Hazard
      Lukaku

    5. St Pauli Walnuts

      Like it. I only have 5 players different in my current draft.

      Spinnazola, Soucek, Mount, Chiesa and Eriksen

      Vs

      P Torres, Berardi, Zilelinski, F Torres and Insigne

      If Berardi gets the nod over Chiesa then I think I’ll take him and F Torres and get rid of Mount

    Most have same front 3:

    Lukaku/Depay/CR7

    Seems only differentials are in mf

    1. The Son-dance Kid
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'm curious why kane hasn't been mentioned?

      1. The Son-dance Kid
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Or any English players for that matter?

      2. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Think he will be for last two group games, there’s a lot of chip activity so drafts are often round 1 focused

    2. Milkman Bruno
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I’m losing Depay to beef midfield and defence. I don’t see Ukraine or Austria being as easy a people think.

        1. Meimei
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Care sharing your team ?

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Ukraine maybe not, but Austria is a team waiting to crumble apart

      • Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Not everyone. CR7 & Depay are still not that highly owned.

      • Kun Tozser
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Extra point for goal outside the box

        No bonus

        Money better spent on 5 attacking mids imo

    3. waterboy

      This is my LDR Front 3 Draft, set up just for Matchday 1, and will be using Limitless in Matchday 2

      Targeting certain games in the first Matchday, rather than looking at a balanced squad. Gambling on results to get a good start.

      Schmeichel
      Florenzi Bastoni Kjaer Winjdal Alba
      Schaub Llorente
      Lukaku Depay Ronaldo

      Krul Gundogan Jota Nego

      I intend on Florenzi (C) first day, Lukaku second (if needed) Depay next and CR7 on the last day of it's all gone T*ts Up.

      Florenzi and Bastoni double up will be based on team news prior to the first game and I'm really hoping I don't need to use Nego on the last day.

      Any suggestions for tinkering that will it improve it? Thanks

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years

        Not a fan of any of those mids besides Jota. Also don’t think Alba is nailed

          Who have you gone for in midfield?

        Am I the only one with mbappe?

        1. Milkman Bruno
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Owned by 34% so not quite

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Good chunk of those are casuals, the same casuals that own Kante

        2. van der irwin
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          i have a question about the rules in the euros fantasy game -
          if say i have kane who scores 8pts and i TRANSFER him out for mbappe and he gets 10pts, do i get points for both players at the end of the game week or just mbappe??????

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            You won’t get Kane’s points in that case, so obviously only transfer out players that blank

            1. van der irwin
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              cool - thanks for clarifying

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                By transfer out I assume you mean sub out? Because actual transfers don’t count until the following MD

        3. Milkman Bruno
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Is this a poor line attempt? Nego and Sudakov are fodder so leaves me with 532/523/433 formations. Kjaer/Denayer I’ve not decided on yet.

            Donna
            J.Alba, Bonucci, Spinazzola, Kjær/Denayer
            Hazard, F.Torres, Mount, Sudakov
            Lukaku, Arnautovic

            Hradecky, Cancelo, Ronaldo, Nego

            Captaincy line: Bonucci-Hazard/Lukaku-Mount/Arnie-Torres-Ronaldo

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Having 1 non playing fodder is bad enough, but 2 isn’t acceptable for the euros format. You’re disadvantaging yourself imo

              1. Milkman Bruno
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  It’s only for one week as I’d be using LL in MD2. The rest are nailed on and play on each matchday. I see your point though.

                  1. Pukki Blinders
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    But then you’re stuck with them for MD3 again...

                    1. Milkman Bruno
                        1 month, 25 days ago

                        But then you wildcard. Attacking the group games is a good tactic. Better teams v worse teams

              2. Pukki Blinders
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                With the absence of bonus points in this game, does it severely diminish the appeal of a premium goalkeeper?

                Seriously thinking about going into MD1 with Cakir/Hradecky and pumping all funds into attack. Think budget goalkeepers from weaker teams can come close to matching the premiums on save points alone

                The 6 point ceiling for goalkeepers and non attacking defenders just doesn’t appeal to me so I don’t think I’ll spend more than 4.5 on a defender or goalkeeper for MD1...

                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  I think you've a point with keepers, to an extent... but there's a raft of attacking defenders who cost money and are well worth a purchase - not to mention some who play out of position or are on set pieces.

                  1. Pukki Blinders
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    Plenty of 4.5 defenders that can do the same - Maehle, Alioski and Wijndal the 3 that stand out + Torres for CS potential.

                    Basically leaves one spot for a premium defender, but I myself am taking Denayer in the 5th slot

                    Mbappe/Ronaldo 9/1
                    Benzema/Depay 16/1

                    its fine. i dont like the Nego pick as it goes against the principles of the game, but compromises must be made to get a power 3 so it could turn out to be ok.

                      1 month, 25 days ago

                      Agreed, if I can get a budget Italian I will swap out and upgrade Nego

                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  Draft 4.11 - looking at a Kane team, as I think the obvious pick Depay might be a trap and looking ahead I will want a good captain option on MD2.3 (Depay/Lukaku play on same day):

                  Hdracky / Simon
                  Bonucci / Maele / Denayer / Torres / Fonte
                  Jorg / Alaba / Elmas / Malinovski / Torres
                  Lukaku / Kane / CR7

                  Likely transfers: CR7 --> Mbappe + maybe Elmas --> Larsson or whatever else needs a fix

                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    Simon I don’t trust to hold his spot, and there’s little chance Fonte starts ahead of Pepe

                  Thoughts on this top heavy draft? LL MD3 is the plan...

                  Cakir Hradecky
                  Alioski Torres Wijndal Denayer Maehle
                  Bilva Torres Insigne Elmas Berardi
                  Depay Lukaku Griezmann

                  Basically a question of whether to downgrade Insigne to a 7.0 mid like Mount, then spread the funds across the goalkeepers/defence?

                  I think my main issue is working out which team has the best full backs with likely attacking returns AND clean sheets. At the moment, I think Italy is the best bet here, but anyone got any ideas on any others?

                  You get two wildcards right? One chip that comes after Matchday 1... and a free one that comes after Matchday 3?

                  Extreme noob to anything other than FPL so let me off with this question. Only thought about doing a Euro fantasy team about 30 mins ago. Cheers

                    Yeah thats correct - 1 wildcard chip and unlimited transfers after the group stage

                    First price change occurs MD3 based on player performance, not transfers in or out

                      Is that in-between MD2 and MD3 or before the knockouts when we have unlimited transfers

                        Good question - my interpretation of it is before MD3 but who knows

                    I feel bookies are just biased towards england. with maguire out I don't see england keeping many clean sheets

                    Bookie odds aren’t completely accurate as they change when punters load up on something... I think some people may have thrown a lot on England in this case to drive the odds down

                  Anyone tempted with R.Rodriguez? Should be on pens and could easily get a clean sheet against Wales. Also play on the 2nd day so can be subbed out if you have a balanced squad.

                  The downside of course is that he's 5.5m but he's one I think I will punt on.

                    Missed the last 2 pens so be cautious. Will also probably play CB which isn’t ideal for a 5.5 swiss defender. Compare that to Alioski, attacking wingback for 4.5 on pens, much better value

                  Hey all. Have a weekend job so FPL is sadly a no go, but I always really look forward to the international tournaments. Input gladly recieved on my team.

                  Patricio/Krul

                  Spinazzola Torres Kjaer Denayer/ Alioski

                  Wijnaldum Bale Jota Beradi / Tielemans

                  Lewandowski Benzema Moreno

                  My swaps being Beradi > Insigne Tielemans > Nego if Beradi doesn't start.

                    I have a weekend job too mate, doesn’t stop me from fpl. Tbf you don’t need to watch all the games to do well

                    Nice draft, not a big fan of Bale (overpriced imo) and Tielemans (DM). Also be cautious with Moreno, I don’t think he starts as the manager is high on Morata it seems

                    1. dirtmcgirt

                      I just get really investedz feel like I wouldn't be able to give a lot of attention. I guess it would fun to see how a casually picked team would do in comparison to mates.

                      Tbf I'm going with Bale because I think rumours of his demise are a bit exaggerated and I'd be going for one of the more expensive midfielders everyone else has like Bruno or kdb otherwise.

                      Morata got booed off and he doesn't seem the type to shrug that sort of thing off easily. But yeah if the manager is dead set it's something I'll keep an eye an eye out for.

                      Don't know enough about a lot of 6.5 midfielders other than soucek but yeah fair point on Tielemans

                    Grealish unlikely to start imo and Poulsen a big rotation risk too

                  For the first two matches only:

                  A. Griezmann + Berardi (also have Insigne)
                  B. Benzema + Mount
