Fantasy Premier League 2013/14

Recommended Posts

You are now able to choose your fantasy team for this upcoming Premier League season. I know there are a few different fantasy football websites, but this thread is for the fantasy football that is run by the Barclays Premier League on their official website, just so there's no confusion.

Going off the number of people that joined the SM league last season, I've decided it would be worth setting up an SM league for this seasons competition, which by all means you can join if you want. The code for that is;

13893-5386

There's not really much more to say on the matter really. I'm sure most, if not all of you are familiar with the concept of fantasy football, but there should be instructions/rules on the Barclays Premier League website for those who don't (which I can't seem to find :o:p).

Best of luck to everybody who joins :)

HEAD-TO-HEAD LEAGUE CODE:

13893-208908

Re: Fantasy Premier League 2013/14

SL Benfica

Went a bit risky, with my striking options and my newcastle selections. Also a few too many young players who could flop this season like Shaw, Nastastic, Altidore, Wanyama etc. Could pay off well though if they perform :)

Who should I start Alitidore or Van Wolfswinkel. Both had great seasons last season :rolleyes:

Re: Fantasy Premier League 2013/14

Made my team earlier today so might as well enter the league as well :) Heres the team for now no set 11 as of yet and i will almost certainty make transfers before the first game as more players move clubs and i see ways to improve. Think ill also be scrutinising the fixture list to see the best players to pick to get ahead early :)

Re: Fantasy Premier League 2013/14

Was just about to start a thread and renew last years league then I saw this!

Have joined. Just a bit of info on it:

Squad Size

To join the game select a fantasy football squad of 15 players, consisting of:

2 Goalkeepers

5 Defenders

5 Midfielders

3 Forwards

Budget

The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.

Players per team

You can select up to 3 players from a single Barclays Premier League team.

Choosing Your Starting 11

From your 15 player squad, select 11 players by the Gameweek deadline to form your team.

All your points for the Gameweek will be scored by these 11 players, however if one or more doesn't play they may be automatically substituted.

Your team can play in any formation providing that 1 goalkeeper, at least 3 defenders and at least 1 forward are selected at all times.

Selecting a Captain and a Vice-Captain

From your starting 11 you nominate a captain and a vice-captain. Your captain's score will be doubled.

If your captain plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, the captain will be changed to the vice-captain.

If both captain and vice-captain play 0 minutes in a Gameweek, then no player's score will be doubled.

Prioritising Your Bench For Automatic Substitutions

Your substitutes provide cover for unforeseen events like injuries and postponements by automatically replacing starting players who don't play in a Gameweek.

Based on the priorities you assign, automatic substitutions are processed at the end of the Gameweek as follows:

If your Goalkeeper plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, he will be substituted by your replacement Goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.

If any of your outfield players play 0 minutes in the Gameweek, they will be substituted by the highest priority outfield substitute who played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules (eg. If your starting team has 3 defenders, a defender can only be replaced by another defender).

After selecting your squad you can buy and sell players in the transfer market. Unlimited transfers can be made at no cost until your first deadline.

After your first deadline you will receive 1 free transfer each Gameweek. Each additional transfer you make in the same Gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total score (Classic scoring) and match score (Head-to-Head scoring) at the start of the next Gameweek.

If you do not use your free transfer, you are able to make an additional free transfer the following Gameweek. If you do not use this saved free transfer in the following Gameweek, it will be carried over until you do. You can never have more than 1 saved transfer.

Wildcards

A Wildcard allows you to make unlimited free transfers throughout a Gameweek. You can use up to 2 a season.

Playing a wildcard will remove any points deductions from transfers already made in the same Gameweek.

One wildcard can be played at any time. The January Wildcard can only be used after Gameweek 20 starts (1 Jan 11:30) until Gameweek 23 ends (1 Feb 11:30); as the January wildcard isn't available until after the Gameweek 20 deadline, the earliest these transfers will be active is Gameweek 21.

When playing a Wildcard, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek.

Player Prices

Player prices change during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player prices do not change until the season starts.

The price shown on your transfers page is a player's selling price. This selling price may be less than the player's current purchase price as a sell-on fee of 50% (rounded up to the nearest £0.1m) will be applied on any profits made on that player.

For example, if you buy a player for £8.3m and when you transfer him his price is £9.0m, his selling price will be £8.6m.

During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance in the Barclays Premier League.

Action Points

For playing up to 60 minutes 1

For playing 60 minutes or more 2

For each goal scored by a goalkeeper or defender 6

For each goal scored by a midfielder 5

For each goal scored by a forward 4

For each goal assist 3

For a clean sheet by a goalkeeper or defender 4

For a clean sheet by a midfielder 1

For every 3 shot saves by a goalkeeper 1

For each penalty save 5

For each penalty miss -2

Bonus points for the best players in a match 1-3

For every 2 goals conceded by a goalkeeper or defender -1

For each yellow card -1

For each red card -3

For each own goal -2

Clean sheets

A clean sheet is awarded for not conceding a goal whilst on the pitch and playing at least 60 minutes.

If a player has been substituted when a goal is conceded this will not effect any clean sheet bonus.

Red Cards

If a player receives a red card, they will continue to be penalised for goals conceded by their team.

Red card deductions include any points deducted for yellow cards

Assists

Assists are awarded to the player from the goal scoring team, who makes the final pass before a goal is scored. An assist is awarded whether the pass was intentional (that it actually creates the chance) or unintentional (that the player had to dribble the ball or an inadvertent touch or shot created the chance).

If an opposing player touches the ball after the final pass before a goal is scored, significantly altering the intended destination of the ball, then no assist is awarded.

Rebounds

If a shot on goal is blocked by an opposition player, is saved by a goalkeeper or hits the woodwork, and a goal is scored from the rebound, then an assist is awarded.

Own Goals

If a player shoots or passes the ball and forces an opposing player to put the ball in his own net, then an assist is awarded.

Penalties and Free-Kicks

In the event of a penalty or free-kick, the player earning the penalty or free-kick is awarded an assist if a goal is directly scored, but not if he takes it himself, in which case no assist is given.

Bonus Points

A new Bonus Points System (BPS) has been created which utilises a range of statistics to create a BPS score for every player. The three best performing players in each match will be awarded bonus points. 3 points will be awarded to the highest scoring player, 2 to the second best and 1 to the third.

Examples of how bonus point ties will be resolved are as follows:

If there is a tie for first place, Players 1 & 2 will receive 3 points each and Player 3 will receive 1 point.

If there is a tie for second place, Player 1 will receive 3 points and Players 2 and 3 will receive 2 points each.

If there is a tie for third place, Player 1 will receive 3 points, Player 2 will receive 2 points and Players 3 & 4 will receive 1 point each.

How is the BPS score calculated?

Players score BPS points based on the following statistics (one point for each unless otherwise stated):

•Playing in a game

•Playing over 60 minutes

•Scoring goals

•Goalkeepers and defenders (4 points)

•Midfielders (6 points)

•Fowards (8 points)

•Assists (3 points)

•Goalkeepers and defenders keeping a clean sheet (4 points)

•Saving a penalty (5 points)

•For every 3 saves

•For every 3 open play crosses

•Creating a big chance (a chance where the receiving player should score)

•For every 8 clearances, blocks and interceptions (total)

•For every 8 recoveries

•Providing key passes

•Making 3 tackles

•Scoring the goal that wins a match

•Pass Completion (after making at least 30 passes)

•70% completion (1 point)

•80% completion (2 points)

•90% completion (3 points)

Players lose BPS points based on the following statistics (one point for each unless otherwise stated):

•Conceding a penalty

•Missing a penalty (-2 points)

•For every 2 goals conceded by goalkeepers and defenders

•Yellow cards

•Red cards (-3 points)

•Own goals (-2 points)

•Missing a big chance

•Making an error which leads to a goal

•Every 2 errors leading to an attempt at goal

•Being tackled 3 times

•Conceding 2 fouls

•Being caught offside 3 times

•Missing the target with 3 shots

Data is supplied by Opta and once it has been marked as final will not be changed. We will not enter into discussion around any of the statistics used to calculate this score for any individual match.

No doubt it will change but:

De Gea

Ivanovic - Nastasic - Koscielny

Navas - Paulinho - Hazard - Chamberlain

Aguero - Bony - Cornelius

Davis - Evans - Baker - Wanyama

As predicted' date=' I have had a mess around :)

[center']Hart

Ivanovic - Jagielka - Koscielny

Bellamy - Hazard - Navas - Chamberlain

Aguero - Bony - Lukaku[/center]

Re: Fantasy Premier League 2013/14

So Far I've messed around with a few idea's of teams my favorite being:

Stekelenburg

Baines - Vertongen - Shaw

Snodgrass - Bale© - Hazard - Walcott(VC)

Berbatov - Bony - Cornelius

Subs: Given, Clyne, Baker, Wanyama

Depending on Benteke's move i may put Helenius in instead of Cornelius. Think i'm risking it a little bit with the front line with two new transfers but they both look like they could and should fit in the EPL quite well, Berba hopefully will be his same old reliable self in front of goal.

Couldn't see any value in either of the Manchester Clubs bar the keepers for example Welbeck who doesn't score is a 7.5M forward you could get a Lambert for the same price.

Yep! Obviously with Jovetic and Negredo incoming they will probably go in and I'll swap out some of the more expensive players. Not been that many decent defenders transfer to the Premier League.
