One can play fantasy football on a number of easily available platforms provided by famous websites. The only problem is that not everyone knows how to play wisely in order to win the game. So here are some tips and tricks to make a real dream fantasy team and boss the game.
Before any football season or tournament begins, there are friendly matches played between clubs or countries. Keeping a close watch on these games can really help select your opening bunch of players to start the game with.
Most of the fantasy sites have a common game rule of providing bonus points to the players with goals, assists, interventions, clean sheets, clearances, etc. Tracking the players who take regular set-pieces and picking defenders who can clear the ball and make good interceptions can really help boost points.
Look at the mid-tier teams. These teams contain budget friendly players who perform well in the games and sometimes even outperform world class players who cost more.
Most of the websites provide users with multiple formations for team management. Playing around with team formations can really improve and free up some bucks to spend. For example, 3-5-2 is a really balanced formation which provides only three defenders, as the back line doesn’t provide many points very consistently. However, it gives you five midfielders, increasing your chances of hitting a jackpot. Also, don’t forget to engage a couple of best possible strikers.
As important as it is to stay on a budget, it is equally important to invest in star players as they will be the ones who will fetch points week in and week out. So, carefully judging and buying players who score regularly or are ridiculously in form is mandatory.
Never over invest in new signings. This maybe not true for fantasy games based on international tournaments but is a must for club fantasy games. New signings maybe star-studded players but they are new to the club and may or may not be very effective at the start of the season, so it is best to wait and watch them till mid-season.
Keep track of the fixtures, teams with easy or tough games really affect how many points the players in your squad are going to bring.
Planning ahead is a key factor in fantasy games, keeping a decent bench really helps to rotate the players in times of injury or sudden team changes.
One really good trick is to wait for using special options like wildcards which give you the ability to change the whole squad for once, triple captain or bench boost are special moves which fantasy games offer once or twice in the whole season. So, use it wisely.
A final tip is to trust what your gut says and to not be afraid of taking a gamble because sometimes a risky chance taken can yield huge rewards. A bonus tip is to buy a lot of full backs these are players who go for less money but sometimes award assist points or goals if you are lucky.
