Fantasy Football The FF247 Community Team – We go again

It was around this time twelve months ago that another team joined the 3 million-strong throng of Fantasy Football Teams vying for the crown of overall world champion. Except in this case it would be “champions” as this team was a little different. You were in it. And you. You, too. I was as well. The FF247 Community Team (founded 2015) was born, and indeed borne out of a curiosity of a few regulars who wondered if we could have a fantasy team representing all you good good people. Let’s embrace what we did last year, with an overall respectable final rank of 100,193 and see if we can improve on that the second time around.

For those new to this concept, your management team of myself, elleffcee and NZ Alex will guide you via comments on our dedicated article which sits on the tab at the top of the FF247 homepage. These comments will advise you when we are looking for your interaction, namely to let us know how you think we should manage the Community Team. Once our original squad has been selected (more of that soon), we need you to advise us how many transfers we should make, who should be transferred out, in and how we should line up for the forthcoming gameweek and also who will wear our captain’s armband for double points.

All our voting is based on a first past the post system – most votes wins. Simple.

The initial squad selection last season was a little laborious so we have decided to streamline this for this season. We will soon open voting where we will ask you to vote for your desired players by each position (hopefully getting a nice mixture of top-end and budget players . . . . or not?) and then the management team will construct the squad based upon your most popular two or three players per position and then by budget as we work our way through the positions.

The management team have our own individual teams so we are not one bit interested in manipulating the Community Team to turn it in to some second team of ours. You will get what you vote for.

We received some positive feedback on this venture last year so we feel we owe it to you all to have another go and we just hope you support us once more.

To the 2016/17 season then. Shall we?

      • No it’s not GP, its below :)

        Voted anyhow Sir. May be a box of frogs but I put Vardy in for Defoe, just for something different. I know he didn’t score last night but by all accounts he was brilliant.

        Looks from the voting that Firmino is leaving for Alli at this point. Defoe out for Diego isn’t far behind though and a few more votes for that one may push it over the line.

    • Voted Sir

      Defoe to Costa for me

    • Just voted to bank the transfer but I don’t think I’m in the majority :)

      • You most certainly aren’t Kop but taking part is the whole point. :)

        Huge thanks mate.

        • Just voted for Costa in until Kane is back could be after the FA Semis

  4. Fantasy Football Fix has recommended I have Baines as my Captain this GW29 – it has to be rubbish when I also have Lukaku. Costa and Coleman + Liverpool Mids in the team – Algorithms gone mad!!

  5. Anyone got any love for Mata? Obviously no. But with Zlatan out and Herrera also binned for a couple of matches, isn’t he a decent option with the fixtures that Man U have coming up? That’s what I’ll vote for, anyway.

    • Should have said Mata in for Allen

      • Thanks for the vote mate. :ok:

        • No probs, GP. My first vote for the Community Team – was interesting to see how others wanted to shape things. Can you let me know how many points the team has, and its rank? It’s not hte same as the Site Team, is it?

        • Hi Qwkliduzzit

          No this is a separate team from the Site Team. The site team is selected by the administrators of this site. They are doing very well this season.

          This one you have voted for (and thank you) is the Community Team which is aimed at showing how a team reflects a broader view of fantasy managers.

          You can see below how we are doing so far this season.

          Please keep voting on this thread each week.

          Thanks.

  7. Voted, perhaps in the majority. One question. when should we start worrying about having our 7-9 players for gw34-or is gw34 going to be a mini dgw? Curious.

  8. * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM FOR GAME-WEEK 29 *

    Here is our team for this week.

    Thanks to all for your votes and to those on here for increasing the awareness of the vote. It has been reflected in the upturn in numbers.

    Hope we can continue in this way.

    Llorente leaves for Diego Costa.

    Lukaku captain.

    A score of 64 followed this week which is 27 above the average of 47 and saw us climb again in the overall rankings. We now sit at 795,874.

    Big break until the next deadline so we’ll leave this for now and be back next week with the vote.

  11. Awesome. I thought I’d be a minority of one. Cookie, once again you renew my faith, in a so-so head-to-head year.
