See if the team at SER with their knowledge, can produce a decent fantasy squad.
The Barclays Premier League is well underway, with 8 rounds of games having been played, and SER has been participating in the League’s game, Fantasy Premier League. It’s a fun game, and the enjoyment can be taken to an even further level if you join a mini-league with your friends. If you’d like to look up our team, we’re called SEReviews (original) and we may possibly start a mini-league for the site’s viewers and us! Here’s our squad at the moment, and we’d like to hear what you think of our team. Please place a comment below!
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here are the set of rules (there are a lot!).
A manager may enter one Fantasy Premier League squad, multiple squads will be deleted. Squads must consist of:
- 2 Goalkeepers
- 5 Defenders
- 5 Midfielders
- 3 Forwards
You can select up to 3 players from any one team. If a player is transferred during the season and this transfer takes you over this limit, then you will need to go back under the limit when making your next transfers.
Each player has been given a value. The total value of your initial squad must not exceed Â£100 million. The value of each player can be found here.
From your 15 player-squad you select 11 players to form your team each Gameweek. Only starting or automatically substituted players will earn points for your team.
Your team can play in any formation providing one goalkeeper and at least three defenders and one forward are selected.
To change your formation simply select your chosen eleven players on the My Team page. The computer will automatically chose your formation based on the players you have selected.
Players can only play in their designated position. For example, you can’t play a defender as an attacker.
Any changes you make to your team will become active at the next deadline.
You must nominate a member of your team to be captain. This player will score double the number of points he would usually have been awarded that Gameweek.
If your captain does not play then he will be automatically substituted in accordance with the rules, but the captain bonus will be lost. Another player will not take over the captaincy in his place.
You can change your captain at the bottom of the My Team page. Any changes you make to your captain will become active at the next deadline.
If your goalkeeper plays no part in the Gameweek, then the computer will substitute him for your replacement goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.
If any of your outfield players play no part in the Gameweek, then the computer will try to substitute the inactive player for one of your replacements. This is done by replacing him with your highest priority substitute who actually played in the Gameweek and doesn’t break the formation rules.
Automatic substitutions are applied at the end of the Gameweek, when all matches have been played.
You can change your substitution priorities at the bottom of the My Team page. Any changes you make to your substitution priorities will become active at the next deadline.
After selecting your squad you can still deal in the transfer market. Unlimited squad transfers can be made, 1 transfer can be made between each gameweek deadline without charge. Each additional transfer made in the same gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total at the next deadline. Unused free transfers are not carried over to the next Gameweek.
All transfers before the start of the season are made at no cost. For teams entering after the start of the season, no points will be deducted before their first deadline.
You can play 1 transfer wild card a season. All transfers made in the Gameweek your wild card is played will be without points deduction. You play your wild card when confirming transfers.
Any transfers you make will become active at the next deadline.
Any changes to your team (substitutions, transfers, captain changes, substitution priorities) must be made by the Gameweek deadline to take effect for that set of matches.
During the season, the fantasy football players will be allocated a point score after each game, based on their performances in the matches. Only official Barclays Premier League games are included.
The Points will be calculated using data provided to us by the Press Association. Neither we nor the Press Association will enter into any correspondence relating to the allocation of points to players. We accept no responsibility for the accuracy of this data.
