    Enjoy the world cup fantasy gang, I am out of it! Need some rest 😆

    1. Utopsis

      Same - I also just don't know enough players from, the lesser nations so the research required alone has put me off!

        Me too. The whole corrupt thing leaves me feeling queasy. I'll watch some games but I can't work up the enthusiasm to engage with it more actively.

    I can’t wait 😀

    Need an Andreas masterclass today….

      On set pieces including pens. I’d be optimistic

    I need Dunk Trossard & Rashford to catapult me into the top 100k going into the WC.

    Too soon for us (me) to be posting our early WC break drafts?

      Of course not, go ahead. We've all been at it on the previous articles this morning

      1. sirmorbach

        Cheers, my man!

      Yes. Get some fresh air

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Fresh air is overrated.

      I'm currently on the following - only concern is bench is non existent!!

      Ward
      Cancello Trippier Gabriel
      Salah Almiron Trossard Martinelli Maddison
      Kane Haaland

      Iverson Beuno Greenwood Patterson

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Wow, it's a great team. I have the opposite concern, think my bench is too expensive. There you have it:

        Pope
        Cancelo, Trippier, Saliba
        Salah, Maddison, Martinelli, Zaha, Almirón
        Kane, Darwin

        Ward, Solanke, Martínez, Bueno

        1. notlob legin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          No Haaland??

          1. sirmorbach
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Oops! Sorry. It's Haaland instead of Kane. My bad. lol I'm not that crazy.

            1. notlob legin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              LOL - I really like it

              I'm 100% restructuring to 3-5-2 I think that'll be the way to go

              I'm also not convinced on Darwin as Jota and Diaz will be back

              For me Kane and Almiron are the 2 killing my rank so structured my changed around getting those 2 in

              1. notlob legin

                • 7 Years

                changes

              2. sirmorbach
                • 7 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                I think you're spot on about Darwin, mate, he really is my concern at the moment. It's either Kane and back to the drawing board, or Jesus and some other upgrade! Many thanks for sharing your thoughts, 'twas very helpful.

                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  Will be interesting to see the tactics when Diaz is back. But it could even benefit Darwin a lot more than Salah if they go back to a 4231 setup. I'm pretty confident in him going forward actually

                  1. Firminooooo

                    • 8 Years
                    1 year, 3 months ago

                    Diaz instead of Salah will be my big decision.

        2. Arn De Gothia

          Same problem here

          Sanchez, Ward
          Cancelo, Trippier, White, Robertson, Martinez
          Foden, Maddison, Martinelli, Trossard, Almirón
          haland, Darwin, Toney

          But i like it. 1,7 itb

      2. HollywoodXI

        We have the exact same WC team except I currently have Jesus instead of Maddison and Zinchenko instead of Gabriel

      Done with Kane? I'm on the fence about him. Mins logged in WC will be a key factor. But if I don't go for him I'll have an even stronger bench than that, or just money sitting itb (no Salah for me)

      1. HollywoodXI
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I’ve just got him in on WC

      2. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I have a feeling Liverpool will come back stronger after the break — I have more confidence in Klopp than in Conte, that is, and Mo Salah will be rested. Granted, I'll admit I have a soft spot for him, so your decicion could (and perhaps is!) more rational than mine. I still feel I just have Kane in there, so I really am considering some restructuring. (The idea of a stronger bench sounds nice too.)

    Getting ready for the usual trossard disappointment. Dude flatters to deceive. Always looks like he should score more points than he does. Dude I really need those points today, don’t run around looking threatening for nothing. Even Gross has outscored you in the past two weeks for crying out loud

    1. Arn De Gothia
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Don’t Be greedy, for he’s price he’s doing fine

      He's the sort of player who you need to retain over a long period. In that way you'll get a decent return. Trying to pick the individual weeks is a losing policy. Believe me, I've tried it.

    Captaincy in the wc fantasy. How is it after all?
    A) we can change it between days (like in ucl fantasy)
    B) we can change between fixtures
    C) we can change it just once

    1. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A (I think)

    2. The Tinkerman
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

    3. fenixri
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A 100%

  8. N00B
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 3 months ago

    1) Rules from here: https://play.fifa.com/fantasy-classic/help/guidelines

    "For each matchday, you must select a captain who will score double points for your team.
    You will be able to change your captain by pressing the “Captain” icon available in a players profile.
    You can change your captain an unlimited amount of times, as long as the new selected captain is yet to play in the current matchday.
    Once your captain has played in the matchday, you are able to change your captain once more for another player who is yet to play. If you choose to change your previous captain, you will lose their double points and your new captain will score double instead."

    2) But in this article (https://www.fifa.com/fifaplus/en/articles/play-fifa-world-cup-fantasy) it says:
    "Your captain scores double points each round. You can change your captain each day within matchdays, but once you change him, you can’t change it back."

    1. fenixri
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It meams you cant change it back. If you C Estupinian on Sunday and change it to Kane on monday you cant cahneg ot back to Estupinian anymore

    2. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Oh wow nice I thought someone said you could only change it once but yeah it’s obvious in the rules you can change it once a day nice

  9. FOO FIGHTER

    Repost

    These are the two teams I am looking at the moment. Which one would you pick?

    Team A (343)
    Allison Ward
    Trippier Gabriel Saliba Henry Bueno
    Salah Trossard Odegaard Almiron Andreas
    Haaland Kane Nunez

    Team B (352)
    Henderson Ward
    Trippier Gabriel Saliba Mee Patterson
    Salah KDB Trossard Martinelli Almiron
    Haaland Nunez Greenwood

    0 ITB with both teams

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Your team A's midfield & strikers are very similar to the team I've penciled in at the moment

      Ward/Iversen
      Robbo Tripper White Patterson Beuno
      Salah Trossard Martinelli Almiron Andreas
      Haaland Kane Nunez

    2. Arn De Gothia
      • 13 Years

      A

  10. FOO FIGHTER

    I am skipping the WC fantasy game. Think it is going to be the luck of the draw, even worse than FPL.

  11. TheBiffas
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Martial and Bailey with a brace each would do nicely

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Martial may only manage to make 10 minutes of the match lol

      1. TheBiffas
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        That's alright, Darwin (c) has already made up for it

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Nunez has finally kicked into gear. If it was not for the 3 match ban he would be cruising by now.

    Need a high scoring game with my final 2 players to play, each hauling..... Rash and Andreas please

    Lurker here. Played 18/19 FPL season but it eas too long and taxing for me (ended just under 20k OR) . I am more into UCL and Eiro/WC fantasy. Thinking about getting premium membership here for WC. I like digging into statistics and tinkering. Do you think its worth it for WC fantasy?

    Bailey benched

    Who has been the top troller so far in terms of owning/not owning a player at the wrong time?
    A) Foden
    B) Rodrigo
    C) Toney
    D) Wilson
    E) Trossard

          • 9 Years

          Does seem odd especially as he was rested in the cup game so I assumed he was nailed on for this and he's in form?

  20. Philosopher's Stones

    Only Martial left and sitting on just 42 points. Don't think I'm going into the break looking at a green arrow.

  21. lilmessipran
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    These Premier league pressers are such a waste of time and resources, about time officials start realizing they offer no value but to satisfy the unimaginative journalists.

  22. Werner Bros

    Has it been confirmed whether or not players will be price locked over the WC period yet?

      Yes they will

        Perfect thank

        Awesome

  24. Philosopher's Stones

    Think once the players come back from the World Cup, rotation due to fatigue and injuries will be rife. FPL will become a nightmare post World Cup.

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It certainly could be a big factor. Got some drafts where I just go for 12 starters (2 premiums, 10 mid-pricers, with weekly benching headache) to deal with this, at least for the 1st few weeks

    2. lilmessipran
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Agreed, almost have to go with a strong bench with the unlimited transfers

    3. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm in the same line of thinking. Likely avoiding players like Kane and probably Saka, and a few others due to this

      1. Utopsis
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Kane will have plenty of rest, don't worry

        1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Toney didn't get to play a single minute in Southgate's last selection, and Kane is England captain. He wasn't subbed off on even a single occasion in the Nations League (started 5, was benched in one game where the team was rotated a bit, and still Southgate brought him on). If you mean that England won't get too far then sure I don't disagree, but still something to keep in mind if they get towards the QFs

          1. Utopsis
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Yeah I don't fancy England getting much further than last 16 tbh. Kane will like play every minute of every game, as you say

    4. PogChamp
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Won't they be playing less games than they would if this was FPL? I know there is travel etc but I think the fatigue thing won't be big issue.

      1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Depends on progression, but most teams are playing a game every 4 days initially. Also take into account the heat factor as well as the extensive travelling. If the PL was on then there'd be less games in short periods of time as the European group games are finished, so it'd just be weekly PL games presumably until around Boxing Day

        1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          OK I've had a further look and for the R16 after the groups it depends on which group they're in, the earlier groups will have 6 days between that and the QFs, but between the QFs and SFs and final the gap is only 4 days again (3 days for third place playoff)

          1. PogChamp
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            6 days is not too bad but some of the turn arounds aren't great. Think the fatigue will be more mental than physical

        2. La Roja
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          There is no heat factor at all. This is why World Cup will be played in October. Heat factor is between May - September in GC countries

          1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            It's 30 degrees in Doha today with forecasting of 32-33 most of next week. It was moved there for Winter because summer heat there isn't just oppressive, it's dangerous. That doesn't mean that November-December will be anything like what it's like in Europe

    5. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Think we need to weigh up; fixtures, rest, match fitness and fatigue in our picks.

      Not sure what the right combination will be at all.

    6. Van der Faart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A mix of players who didn't go to the WC, along with some early exiters should be OK.

      There'll likely be a lot of rotation with some players reaching the end of the WC and the very busy domestic calendar after Boxing Day, very risky move I think

    Will FFS host a World Cup Fantasy Football league again? I can find any league codes.
