Euro 2016 Fantasy Football Live Match Chat – The Knockout Phase

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football Live Match Chat – The Knockout Phase

Euro 2016 Fantasy FootballJust as the UK votes on a possible Brexit, the group stages at Euro 2016 have been completed with some unfortunates already on their way home, while all the Home Nations secured to Remain for a while longer as England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland all qualified for the round of 16. You will notice a few changes to the fantasy game, so please allow us to run you through them so you are fully up-to-speed.
Price changes – some players price has increased, but only by a minimal amount it would appear. For example Dimitri Payet’s price has risen from 8.0mln to 8.1mln!! So, nothing to get too worried about.
As a result, your budget has increased by 5mln to 105mln, which not only reflects the price changes but also the fact that most of the smaller teams and cheaper players are no longer available due to them being knocked out, hence there are less budget options available.

Transfers – for this round you have an unlimited amount of transfers. For the quarter-finals you will have 4 free transfers, for the semi-finals you will have 6 free transfers and for the final you will have 6 free transfers.

Team personnel – you can now select four players from a single team for the round of 16, followed by five players for the quarter-finals, six for the semi-finals and eight for the final.

Euro 2016 Fantasy FootballAnd we’re very nearly there. Just a bit of last minute tinkering before it all begins and another summer of wondering when England will be home will be over in about a week or so! We’ve opened the discussion a bit early so feel free to post up those last minute Rate My Teams and post any questions you have on any of the squads or potential team selections. We are blessed with a truly international community so we are sure you will get some answers to almost any concern you may have. Questions regarding what the Dutch are doing this summer are summarily banned though. Oh ok, who are we kidding. First to get Raz to come out from under his anti-Euro blanket wins a t-shirt!

MLS GW15 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW15 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

mls fantasy tipsThis week gets back to ‘normal’ in a sense. We have four DGW teams to choose from and the week starts on Wednesday (7pm ET). Enjoy this week while you can. We have a couple of DGW selections next week – and then we have to try to play the standard game for a while without a boost of double-match action. And if this last round is any indication of the types of scores we might be seeing going forward, it’s a bit worrying.

#1) Know your DGW teams


This week we get (what we thought were) some good teams to choose from for our DGW rosters. LA, NYRB, Philly and RSL are all playing twice. Philly and New York are 1 and 2 in the Eastern Conference, and RSL and LA are both in the playoff spots in the West. So it’s good to remember that you’re not loading your team up with garbage scrubs as we move forward to a standard schedule. That being said, there are a couple of issues we need to work through with these rosters. Read More

MLS GW14 – Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

mls fantasy tipsSurprise everybody, MLS is back this weekend. Right in the middle of all of the other truly great international competitions going on, we have a round of MLS action that will, by and large, go by unnoticed. Now this isn’t so much a criticism of the MLS schedule and their methodology of trying to compete for TV viewers against better footballing options (though I have made that criticism in other forums) – but this is rather a call to action for those savvy enough to realize that they have an opportunity here to gain ground in the MLS league while other players are focused on other things.

Maybe your Euro fantasy team is already in the dumpster (I captained Greizmann right off the bat and could never wake up early enough to switch my cap on subsequent days). Maybe your team is already knocked out of the Copa America (here’s looking at you Brazil). If either of those is the case, you could feasibly take a few minutes and do some real work on your MLS team and maybe jump up a few places in the rankings.

Or you could watch our global superstars play in the two biggest competitions prior to the next World Cup. No judgement either way.

GW14 Deadline is Sat 18th June 6pm GMT Read More

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football – Group F

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football – Group F
Euro 2016 Fantasy FootballEven a cursory glance at the teams stats from Group F’s participants is extremely telling. Austria spread the workload around and contribute (not immodestly it should be noted) as a team. Conversely, Portugal (Ronaldo), Iceland (Sigurdsson) and Hungary (Dzsudzsák) are incredibly reliant on a single player’s output. This should make it rather easy to cherry-pick fantasy-worthy members for our squads however, as you’ll see below, Austria’s numbers have been almost too good to dismiss. The team vs individual dynamic poses a fascinating quandary.

For what it’s worth, I can see Austria upsetting the apple-cart (other online shopping carts are available) and pipping favourites Portugal to the summit. Sigurdsson and his Icelandic buddies should have enough to keep an uninspiring Hungary down at the bottom.

Fantasy Football Pottys Euro 2016 League

Pottys Predictions FPL Champions LeagueHi everyone and as you read this the big kick-off will not be far away and I for one cannot wait and I feel my present team is the one I’ll roll with come Friday when the France vs Romania game gets us underway. But I’ve only gone and bloody well lost the draft, anyway of what I can recall I had Ferdinand as captain which means I’m ready.
For the current Champion of my Fantasy Euro’s 2012 it’s been a long wait and countless hours of preparation as INITTOWINIT plan’s to defend his title in blistering style and believe me he is truly up for this. But maybe you yourself are the one who’ll stop him ?
So onto my League entitled – Sing A Song 4 Europe – the code is 011427DN

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football – Group E

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football – Group E
Euro 2016 Fantasy FootballThe group of death some rate it, the silence of the lambs I’ve seen written. For me it’s one of the tightest groups surely, but probably not as difficult as group D which will surely provoke a few surprises and one or two GW1 goalkeeper capos come the next FPL edition (looking at you Init!).

Group E offers plenty of attraction points though. There’s the Belgium golden generation (minus R. Lukaku of course) and the Italian… err how do we call it? There’s no name for that. And then there’s Ireland who will be fighting for their lives and Sweden who will just be looking for meatballs.

It could be full of 0-0 ties or achieve the incredible heights of a couple of 1-0 wins! So it will be exciting. The interesting part is that only the winner and the third placed of this group could both end up playing Spain’s group D so we may actually end up with a final Matchday (is that how they call it) fight for runners up instead!
One thing I noticed involving this group (and others) is that final day games involve 8 teams so take a look at your bench/sub strategies before loading up on players that play on the same day. These teams will be the last ones on the pitch for the group stage.

Anyway, enough waffle and onto the teams and their respective fantasy potential.

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football – Group D

Euro 2016 Fantasy Football – Group D
Euro 2016 Fantasy FootballThis article comes to you much like my past season – full of the best intentions but ultimately hampered by time differences and life in general. Those of you playing the game outside of Europe who have managed to get a good handle on things, I do salute you as it has turned out to be harder than I imagined. Three days late or not though, here’s a quick perusal of the options in Group D.

Before we begin though let’s have a quick recap of the lead-up to the tournament. England were the only team with a 100% record, and it was tough going too with the likes of Estonia, Lithuania and San Marino in there… Rooney has to get his goals from somewhere mind you. Scotland will have a taste of independence as the other home nations will all be abroad for a bit. Ireland tasted karma in its sweetest and most ironic form after a dubious handball decision went their way in the playoffs, helping them secure qualification. Overall winners not so long ago, Greece finished dead bottom of their group (below the Faroe Islands…), presumably as the Greek FA couldn’t afford to take the squad to the away matches.

The format has been changed from a 16 team tournament to a 24 team one, but far from making it harder to progress from the groups it is now even simpler, with several third place teams progressing out of only four-team groups, in what can only be considered the footballing equivalent of participation medals. I think that about covers all the main news… don’t think I’m missing anything… Oh, yes. The Netherlands didn’t qualify. Runners-up and third place in the last two World Cups; champions and semi-finalists of Europe for 4 out of 5 tournaments between 1988 and 2004; home of Robben, Van Persie, Huntelaar, Sneijder… Yeah you get it. Cruyff must be turning in his grave.
