  1. Jota joins Ronaldo in Portugal attack as Négo benched for Hungary 2 days, 18 hours ago

    Ronaldo captaincy is going to be very high today. Top-class, premium asset and all those with several days' worth of failed punts will be going for him. If you have him and you have a decent captain score like Lukaku it's probably worth avoiding giving him the armband and hoping he stays quiet, knowing you will bank 50% of any returns. It's a good way to stay ahead of the pack if he blanks or even only scores one. I know it seems odd not capping him against Hungary given that this is his best fixture in the group. I had half a mind to YOLO it but reasoned that the best that could happen out of it would be to jump on a very popular captain who won't help me get ahead. » Read

    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.) » Read

  4. Who are the best EURO 2020 Fantasy forwards? 6 days, 17 hours ago

    It's a short tournament with relatively few decision points. The people who do well are aggressive and brave (or foolhardy and lucky). Those same people would get unstuck with 38 weeks' worth of FPL but do fine in this competition. So I think you have to go for it to an extent (two attacking returns would be fine). Bear in mind you can chuck away decent points quite spectacularly. I traded a Giroud goal last time for (ultimately) a Dragovic red card in group stage round one. » Read

    Good article. You have 2 'premium' brackets however. I think the second one needs to be 'mid-price' or similar. » Read

    According to this, certainly! This is just one tool to complement other stats of course but I'll be paying attention to those teams » Read

    By the way there are no advanced stats in the multiplier. Numbers in the hundreds and indeed thousands probably exaggerate small differences. If anyone can think of a better way of doing this then please let me know so I can improve it for next time 🙂 » Read

  15. Best EURO 2020 Fantasy players from Portugal 8 days, 18 hours ago

    I have kept a spreadsheet since Euro 2016 to help me plan for tournament fantasy football. I use it as an at-a-glance indicator of which teams performed well in qualifying ONLY.* It's very basic but I have found it useful over the years and I thought you all might too! The spreadsheet consists of a list of all the teams competing and: - total goals scored and conceded in qualifying. (where a team played more or fewer than 10 these numbers have been adjusted) - each opponent in match order and the number of goals they scored and conceded in qualifying. If you look across Italy's first fixture, Turkey, you will see that this will be a moderate test of Italy's defence, and a tough test for their goal scorers (just three goals conceded in qualifying). - a VERY crude multiplier of each team's attacking and defensive prowess as [goals scored/conceded] x [each opponent's combined goals conceded/scored]. So if a team scored 10 in qualifying and each opponent conceded 10, the 'goal thr… » Read

    Memories of captaining Dragović in the last game of round 1 when he got a red card. Austria weren't as good as expected defensively. I'm not particularly interested in any of their players. » Read
