The new 'draft' has been open online as of the 10th of July.

https://fantasy.premierleague.com/

Anyone wanna take part in a Fantasy Football league for the upcoming 2017/18 Premiership season?

If so, I'm happy to create a league for us all.

I suspect Joel Bish Jonno394, BarnDoor, Original?, Foxhound, Phatmann and a few others might be interested.

That'd be great. Thanks for tagging them, Sweey!

I'll probably do what I always do with this one. Start a team, get bored after a couple of months then leave it for the rest of the season.

My issue right now is Lukaku or Lacazette.......

I'm in.

We could include some restraints to make the game more thrilling, like limiting the number of transfers to 1 per month, for example.

Cool. Could do. I like how you get a free transfer after every game week on their website. It gets quite useful especially as injuries and suspensions start to accumulate over the season.

You having many Swansea players in your squad?

Rangel is getting a lot of picks due to such a low price tag, so he can be picked as a squad filler (essentially).

I picked my initial squad yesternight, since then it has seen a major overhaul three times. Currently I have 3 swans in my squad, Fabianski, Mawson and Ayew.

Yeah, it can be so easily done: I tinker with my squad regularly.

Interesting picks. I nearly went with Abraham but then decided against it, as he may just be an impact sub??

Probably yes. If even Clement goes for the diamond I can see Llorente partner up with Ayew or Tammy in each matchweek. As it stands, definitely not the starting striker.

Joel
22-07-2017, 18:28
I'm pretty sure we wouldn't have sent Tammy somewhere he doesn't get a lot of minutes. Clement's a Chelsea guy too, so I don't think he would lie to us.

Sweey
22-07-2017, 18:40
You'll all want to be picking Batshuayi rather than Morata :sweey3:

You underestimate de importance of Llorente in the team. He's a lighthouse in the middle of the storm.

Why choose any of those anyway? Costa hasn't left yet :folarm:

Anyway... currently equating using anyone from West Ham or Everton. Too many options in midfield/attack (Arnautovic eh?), not sure they are worth the gamble. Maybe Rooney, maybe Snodgrass?

Joel
22-07-2017, 20:32
The lighthouse is injured for the start of the season isn't he? And he may not be in Swansea when he's back from inury anyway...

I'd avoid Everton to start with. Their opening run of fixtures is grim.

West Ham defenders could be good - could get a few more clean sheets now they have Joe Hart. On his day, he's still England's best goalkeeper in my opinion.

We'll see, I don't think he'll leave. As for the injury there's enough time to recover.

yep, west ham have been approaching the transfer market quite wisely.

Everton are a weird team, they are underachievers but play well versus big teams.

Just became aware of this: https://draft.premierleague.com/

Like we used to do, any player can only be owned by a single team.

Bish
23-07-2017, 22:39
That might be interesting.

One thing that puts me off this game usually. After a few months, most peoples teams start to look near the same, so this could be decent.

It can be done with just 2 teams. I'll create it tonight, we just need to set a deadline for the draft.

What's the best way to decide what data to do a draft on? Weekends suit?

So what's the plan, boss-man?

rebelinho

I'm creating it now. Given we have 6 teams I'll go for head-to-head like we had last time (the game allows for head-to-head even with an odd number of teams, somehow they can make it work I suppose).

For the draft I'm thinking maybe saturday or sunday, around 6pm~8pm GMT time. I'm open to suggestions.

Jesus Christ this was bad.

Bez
06-08-2017, 19:45
Yeah mine kept crashing, ended up just adding players to the watchlist and putting them top priority, if the servers would let me!

Happy with my team though, have to say.

Yeah that was my solution as well, but sometimes not even that worked.

I have a feeling my team is much worse than the rest, but then again I might be looking at all that's missing from it as a whole rather than scattered around 4 other teams.

Bez
13-08-2017, 13:39
Despite Gazza Cahill returning me a nice -3 points, I've had a good start to the season in the Draft. I'm currently sitting on 47 points, Firmino leading the way with 12 points. Then there's Bertrand and David Silva with 8 each.

As for today, hopefully De Gea and Mkhitaryan do the business and get some more points!

The Dude

rebelinho
22-08-2017, 17:06
This start has not been the best... Even more when I had a 2-point Baines on the bench and my defence scored 0/(-2)/15/0. This should have been a win...
