Ready to dominate your friends in the next FPL season? These six tips will help you crush your competition and take home the trophy. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first-time player, these tips will give you an edge over the competition. So what are you waiting for – read on and get ready to dominate!
1. A Good Strategy
The first step to dominating your league is having a good strategy. Take some time before the season starts to develop a plan that fits your playing style and budget. Decide which players you want to target, and make sure you have backups for injured or suspended players.
Don’t be afraid to experiment during the preseason – try out different formations and lineups to see what works best for you. And most importantly, stay flexible; if something isn’t working, don’t be afraid to change it up.
2. Player Performance Stats
One of the most important things to look at when choosing your players is their recent performance. Look at how many goals they’ve scored, how many assists they’ve made, and how many points they’ve earned in the last few games.
You should also take into account their fixture list – some teams have an easier run of games than others. And if you can find a player who is playing well but isn’t owned by many other people in your league, that could give you a significant advantage.
3. Sports News and Updates
Another thing to keep track of is team news. Make sure you know which players are injured or suspended, so you don’t pick someone who won’t play or earn you points.
This is where predicted lineups come in. Scout social media platforms, sports websites, and prediction tools to get EPL predicted lineups before the game. You can also subscribe to online sports newsletters and get instant updates to your email.
Use this information to your advantage and make sure you have at least one or two players in your team who are likely to start, even if they’re not the most popular picks.
4. A Good Fantasy Football App
Before the season, make sure to compare different Fantasy Football apps. This is crucial if you want to dominate your league.
The key features to look for are:
- Easy and quick fixtures updates, so you can monitor the schedule of any team or player in a matter of seconds
- EPL predicted lineups that show up before every match kicks off, with an option to see past lineup changes as well
- An easy-to-use web application that runs smoothly on desktop and mobile devices.
- An affordable application- most Fantasy Football apps have a free version but also offer paid versions with more features.
5. Understand the Rules of the Game
One of the most important things you can do to give yourself an edge in your fantasy football league is to understand the game’s rules. Each league has its own set of rules, so be sure to read up on them before draft day. You need to know some basics like;
- The scoring system (how points are awarded)
- Drafting rules (formation and maximum number of players)
- Bonuses and chips
- Rules concerning joining or creating leagues (maximum number of teams in a league and maximum leagues you can join)
- Transfer rules
6. A Balanced Team
While it’s tempting to pick the big names and good players in the EPL, it’s not economic; you’ll exhaust your budget very fast. You should pick players who bring value for their price and fit into your formation.
To get more value, you have to be patient with your transfer budget by taking on cheaper players who’ll not just save you money but give good returns as well. This way, you can afford a strong bench of players who will come in when needed and make up the numbers while others are injured or suspended.
So, there you have it. Six things that you need to do to dominate your league next season. Of course, this is not an exhaustive list, and other factors such as luck will also play a role, but following these tips should give you a good head start.
Dominating your league in the next FPL season will require a lot of preparation and research. Make sure you have a good strategy, player performance stats, sports news and updates, a good fantasy football app, and a deep understanding of the rules of the game. Most importantly, make sure to have a balanced team that can compete against any other squad.
