8 Basic Things You Need To Know To Play Fantasy Soccer

Here is a list of certain things that should be kept in mind in terms of how this fantasy soccer thing actually works and what are the things that a player needs to remember while choosing his players.

1

BUDGET CAP

BUDGET CAP

In simple words, the ‘Budget Cap’ is a stipulated budget that is given to the fantasy game users or players within which they need to form the team. Players can’t exceed the budget allotted to them and they have to form the team using only that much budget. So, users need to strategically select players rather than, randomly selecting expensive players. This is where the skill of the gamer comes in. The more sound the knowledge he has of the game and the teams, the more likely is he to win.

PLAYERS TO CHOOSE

PLAYERS TO CHOOSE

Like I said earlier, don’t just go for the ones that are supposedly the ‘star players’ thus making them expensive. Remember you have a limited budget, moreover it doesn’t mean a player will perform well just because he is costly; even a low budget player can play well. Therefore, always choose your players based on their recent performances rather than their fame.

FORMATIONS

FORMATIONS

After selecting a team, the team manager or you must choose a formation for the opening round of league fixtures. In many fantasy games, you can alter this formation throughout the season.

TEAM TO PLAY

TEAM TO PLAY

Before each round of fixtures throughout the season, managers must select their initial eleven players, in the process deciding which players will be left on the bench, meaning they will not score points. In some fantasy gaming sites, the computer automatically drafts in players from the bench to replace those in the starting 11 if they have not featured in the round of matches, but rules vary.

5

TRANSFERS

TRANSFERS

Many fantasy games allow you to make unlimited transfers before the season has begun. After that, there is often a limit to how many transfers you can make throughout the season. Some games deduct points if you wish to exceed your transfer quota. In some games, a player’s transfer fee can fluctuate depending on his performances. A player who is performing poorly and not scoring many points may see his price go down, while one who is doing well may see his transfer fee go up.

PRIZES

PRIZES

A gamer slash team manager with most points in his name will be the winner and may win real cash prize. The amount of the prize will vary. For instance, in leagues where players need to pay an entry fee for participating in the league will often yield prizes of higher amount.

Maybe this is why the Fantasy sports, be it fantasy cricket or fantasy football has managed to capture the imagination of the people as not only can they win lucrative prizes but also participating in such virtual sports help in proving their sporting skills and knowledge thus boosting their self-confidence.
