How to play FanTeam’s £ 100,000 Premier League fantasy game
Sponsored by FanTeam
FanTeam has announced their Premier League ‘Second Chance’ fantasy match for the second half of this season, from Gameweek 22 January 14.
This gives managers another chance to win a huge cash prize if their home team of the season has already fallen far behind.
There are a guaranteed prize pool of £ 100,000 in this Fantasy tournament, with £ 20,000 goes to the winner and money for everyone who finishes in the top 4,000.
And, remarkably, it is totally free to play!
WHAT ARE THE SIMILAR AND DIFFERENCES WITH FPL?
Here’s the good news: Anyone with any Fantasy Premier League (FPL) experience should be able to pick up the game from FanTeam without a problem. The rules, scoring and prices are very similar, detailed below.
It’s basically FPL but with huge cash prizes. Since paid mini-leagues are now strongly discouraged by the Premier League, the FanTeam game offers fantasy managers a legitimate opportunity to make money from their management expertise.
Unlike the main FanTeam game, this involves building a squad of 11 rather than a squad of 15. Therefore, the budget of 100.0 million is now reduced to 80.0 million. There must be at least one keeper, three defenders, two midfielders and one striker.
A maximum of three players from the same Premier League team can be selected.
One free transfer is allowed every Gameweek, with each additional transfer costing minus four points. FanTeam managers have a Wildcard to use, allowing unlimited free transfers during its activation week.
In addition, a captain and a vice-captain must be appointed each week; the player who gave the armband will score double points.
Does everything sound very familiar to you? That’s because the two games are largely the same – although there are a handful of differences to watch out for.
KEY RULES DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
- Player prices can go up and down depending on the transfer shape and movement in the game, but unlike FPL, a player’s “sell price” is the same as their “buy price”.
- Other than the Wildcard, there are no chips in FanTeam.
- There is no limit to the number of free transfers you can save, unlike FPL which does not allow more than two.
- The ‘Safety Net’ function compensates for the lack of substitutes. If your player does not start a match, he will automatically be replaced by the next (descending) prize starter in the position of that team that did. For example, if midfielder Mohamed Salah was at rest he would be replaced by a cheaper midfielder from Liverpool who played, like Sadio Mane.
HOW DO PLAYERS SCORE POINTS?
Seasoned FPL managers should have no problem adjusting to FanTeam and leading a team with its familiar scoring system, pictured above.
KEY RATING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
- There is no bonus point system, which is replaced by plus / minus points (+ 0.3 / -0.3) if a team wins / loses during the time a player is on the pitch.
- Goalkeepers get 0.5 point for each save made, unlike the point awarded in FPL for three save increments.
- Committing a fault which leads to a goal from a free kick or a converted penalty is penalized by minus two points.
- Midfielders and forwards get an extra point for completing the full game.
- Shots on target that do not end in rewarded goals (+0.4 for midfielders and attackers, +0.6 for defenders)
