    After what happened on Saturday I didnt feel any particular desire to play fantasy football anymore.

    But now I've had a few days Im ready to look at it again. What does the LL2 template look like?

      I don't see how one would effect the other.

      I feel you. That was afwul. Horrible things happen everyday but in that setting it just made my stomach turn.

    Terrible start to fpl on 36 points with Ronaldo and Nego to play. Rival on 69 with Ronaldo left. Due to the short format, i should be playing chips now to catch up?

      I think gw2 is as good a week as you'll get to play limitless. You'll avoid the potential selection headaches in gw3 and you've more matches to choose players from than in the knockout stages

        Okay im doing LL and maybe also wildcard.. feels rubbish to be this behind so early. Had triple denmark including eriksen, and also cancelo which i couldnt have predicted

  3. jay01

    Drop one of:
    A) Meunier
    B) Pavard
    C) Spinazzola
    D) Zinchenko
    E) Dumfries
    F) Alba

    I cant decide!

    1. jay01
      • 7 Years

      Stuck between dropping Alba Dumfries or Zinchenko

    2. Karan14

      E imo

    3. Shteve
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Alaba

        Huh?

  4. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    On Limitless:

    A) Mbappe/Griezmann, Lukaku, Pavard & Hernandez
    B) Mbappe, Griezmann, Hernandez & Alba

    Double up on French attackers or defenders?

    1. Shteve
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Id be leaning towards the defense double up but it might be worth waiting until after tonight's game to decide, see who starts, gets minutes, good form, any injuries etc..

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah I agree have to watch the game tonight to have a better idea. I just feel Denmark is a much defence than Hungary and one of Mbappe/Griezmann are more likely to get a haul than Kaku.

  5. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    On Limitless choose two out of these:

    A) KDB (DEN)
    B) Hazard (DEN)
    C) Ferran (POL)
    D) Wijnaldum (AUT)
    E) Forsberg (SVK)
    F) Golovin (FIN)

    1. Shteve
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Prob A and D if KDB is def fit

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        This also relates to the question above I guess. If I get Kaku I won't go for a Belgium mid but if I don't then more likely to punt on one of them.

        Don't think we will get confirmation though if KDB is definitely fit.

    Hi does anyone playing the telegraph fantasy euro game know of a good forum?

  7. thepancakeman123

    Thoughts on this limitless team?

    Donnarumma
    Spinazzola - Meunier - Zinchenko
    Insigne - Bale (C) - Yarmolenko - Malinovskyi - F. Torres
    Kane - Lukaku

    Pickford - L. Hernandez - Mbappe - Alba

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Nice I like it. Although I don't see a reason to not have 3 French players. Their defenders are better options than all of those and Griezmann is more likely to haul than Kane/Lukaku IMO.

      1. thepancakeman123
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        You're right, might get Lloris for Pickford.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Looks good, you dont like Netherlands attack?

      1. thepancakeman123
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers. I'm only really a fan of Depay but I can't pick him over the big 3.

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      No Dumfries?

      1. thepancakeman123
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I'm a fan of him but I just prefer the five defenders I've picked. Who would you take out for him?

  8. Old Bull
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Pogba or Hazard

  9. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Best option for this team?

    a. depay eriksen denayer > griezman wjinaldum mings -4
    b. Play LL
    c. Play WC

    Donnarumma hradecky
    DENAYER WJINDAL maehle torres alioski

    I must be missing something but I don't understand the appeal of limitless in GW2.

    You get to stick with first-choice players, sure, so you know who is likely to be starting, unlike the lottery of GW3.

    However, your GW3 team is then based broadly on GW1 picks as you will have used your limitless chip instead of fixing your team to make it more GW3-appropriate. This basically forces you into a GW3 wildcard which would only help you for one round as you get unlimited transfers after the group stage.

    Surely it therefore makes better sense to make transfers ahead of GW2 to fix any obvious problems, hopefully not too many if you had players from winning teams. Then you play limitless in GW3 knowing exactly which teams have what to play for and going for their nailed-on players. There should be loads of teams with such players who have not got qualification wrapped up (including possibly all the big teams in Group F as well as maybe Poland, Spain etc.)

    1. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Yeah, as my post down.

      I'm struggling to see this too...

      The only strategy where this makes sense is to use limitless in GD2 and Wildcard GD3, assuming one whittles down the number of players of teams likely to be eliminated as the tournament progresses?

      1. Oneman
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        My approach has very much been to plan initial chip usage when selecting gw1 team so only a few players with bad gw3 fixtures and so LL chip should work gw2 and no chip gw3. Unless you've planned for it I would agree risky though (still some risk but deliberately no fodder on bench)

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I think this is a mistake personally. Your MD1 team will almost never be good for MD3 due to random players getting dropped/injured and loss of motivation for the top teams that are already through.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Most people will WC in MD3 as well.

    3. JLAEST
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      LL2 makes sense because it is the MD in which you stand to reap most benefits, as teams are in full strength and still playing against easier opponents. Plus in knockouts even worse teams will play more defensively. You could argue for MD3, but there the rotation risk is huge and won't allow you to maximize it.

      Also, after the group stage the only case in which WC is useful is after round of 16. After that there are too little teams and too many transfers for it to be useful.

    4. Dr Van Nostrand
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Agreed rotation risk is huge for R3 and WC is very handy for QFs so I'm gonna LL3 too and save WC

  11. Cruyff's Eleven

    Is there an agreed chip strategy yet?

    Sorry, bit otherwise distracted at the moment.

  12. De Gea is GOAT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    69pnts with CR7 still to play. Do i captain him? Currently on Insigne.

    1. 03farmboy
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I would against hungry although insigne score

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Thinking the same! Thank you

  13. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Meunier or Bonucci?

  14. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Currently have insigne (c) with 16pts.

    Should I switch to Ronaldo?

    1. Who are all Lukakus
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      why would you ask that question now?

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      In this predicament as well. Leaning towards switching over to Ronaldo, guess I had him in my side with that in mind at the start of the week so may as well keep to it

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Yes. If I had Ronaldo I'd surely captain him today!

  15. Pep Roulette

    3 months, 12 days ago

    Does it make sense to get players from Russia against Finland on LL?

    1. hullcityfan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Yep - Dzuyba is the best captain for the first day imo

  16. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Starting to question LL MD2, If most teams have passed by MD3 half of most teams are at rotation risk...

    I could see MD3 rotation for Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, England at least

    1. Meimei
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      what is your point?

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Majority of the LL2 are planning to WC in GW3

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      WC MD3.

  17. Joey Tribbiani
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Luis Enrique taking only 24 players into Spain squad, when he could have picked 26 (left out Ramos for example) reminds me of Pep Guardiola kind of overthinking.

  18. Calum Undisputed
    3 months, 12 days ago

    I have 2,3 players i wanna remove for MD2 transfer.
    Bachmann, Wijndal, Maehle

    A. Bachmann + Wijndal + Maehle >> Bushchan + Dumfries + Myokolenko
    B. Bachmann + Maehle >> Shunin + Karavaev
    C. Bachmann + Wijndal + Maehle >> Steklenburg + Karavaev + Myokolenko

  19. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Play LL for this team or save?

  20. JLAEST

    Thoughts for LL2?

    Pickford, Lloris
    Spinazzola, Meunier, Zinchenko, Dumfries, Alba
    Wijnaldum, Bale, Yarmolenko, Insigne, F. Torres
    Kane, Lukaku, Mbappe

    2 main questions
    1) Wijnaldum, Yarmolenko and Insigne are nailed, but any better choices than F. Torres and Bale for mid?
    2) Alba+Lloris or Simon+Pavard? Or other?

    Playing in a work league on the telegraph fantasy euro game, its kinda basic but different strategy, does anyone know of a good forum?

    1. Make Arrows Green Again

      Fiso was always a decent forum - still going AFAIK
