Fantasy Football (has been suspended!) Update

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (perhaps advisable right now) you will be aware that the Premier League have suspended all fixtures until (at least) April 4th. In essence this means that we will miss GW’s 30 & 31 and resume in GW32. Whether the 32 target actually happens is a different matter but for now that is what we are being told to work towards. We just wanted to make you aware of a few key things…

FPL have released the following on Twitter;

    To pick the bones out of that, essentially what it all means is;

  • GW’s 30 & 31 will still happen, albeit in a ghost fashion.
  • You’ll get zero points awarded (unless you somehow still take a hit!).
  • Any moves you make (be that transfers, hits, chips) will still count and be there whenever (if) we resume.
  • They’ve waffled on about the FPL Cup and how it all affects H2H leagues but who really cares!

We appreciate that the above is short ‘n sweet but that is all you need to know in a nutshell. We shall update this accordingly as and when we know more.

Please feel free to continue to chat amongst yourselves as usual and add any relevant info in the comments if you see / hear anything pertinent to the above.

Thanks for reading Fantasy Football (has been suspended!) Update.

    What you need to know so far, in a nutshell.

    Effectively folks, if you have any free transfers use them, if you have 2 or 1 good use them and you can then save your transfer in 31 and should then game resume in 32 you will have 2 FTs.

      I don’t like making early transfers, popcorn

      I would help if we new which GW we are aiming for. GW32 seems optimistic to me, but I guess we should assume that until we here otherwise.

      Rosco,
      A question. Will the FL website roll on through gws 30 and 31 to permit us extra FTs? Is it possible we may deprive ourselves of FTs if these gws get rolled to the back of the season? Confusing.

      • They’ve said 30 & 31 will crack on as blanks. Any extra / remaining games will have to be tagged to 38.

      • Rosco says:

        I’m not sure I understand your question but in essence; the fixtures and GWs will not be rolled back. The season will not resume any sooner thanGW32 so as it is 30 and 31 are blank GWs. If you have 2 Fts use one now and I’ll you’ll have two in BGW31, use another and providing the league starts in 32 you will still have 2. If you have one FT either use it, or roll it. You will then have 2 in BGW31 allowing you to use either 1 (and enter 32 with 2FT) or 2 and enter 32 with the usual 1

      • Rosco says:

        I should elaborate and say a Gameweek can not be rolled. The fixtures that have been canceled on 31 and 32 will just be added to a pile of fixtures needed to be placed into other GWs. GW34 and 37 are the most likely should the cup and European completions be retained, but if they change the rules or end those completions then fixtures could be added in other GWs. As Init says though, if there was a back log of fixtures that surpassed the season as it stands, those fixtures would be added after GW38 but as such would fall under the GW38 Umbrella. It’s not inconceivable to see a GW38 with 90+ fixtures.

        All the above cones with the caveat that FPL sticks to their current rules as they seem to be doing with regard to 31 and 32

          Rosco,
          A belated Friday night thanks for the detailed, precise information. This really sorts the issues.

    I bet someone will still take a hit smile

    Do you think we can persuade enough people to buy the same (non)player with their FT to get a TV increase?

    Just for fun to lighten the mood. If all remaining fixtures occurred in one GW (e.g. all in GW38). What could be possible? Could we have the first 1000pt GW from someone?
