Football, hockey, baseball, cricket, basketball all have different fantasy leagues that give control to the manager while selecting a team. However, these sports share similar features as they all award a winner at the end of a season. Fantasy football is a game in which all players gather a fictitious team of real-life footballers, and earn points based on those players' efficiency. A user selects 11 players within a price limit which is restricted to a minimum of 3 players per club. Most leagues allow users to make transfers regularly as the season progresses due to injuries, game ban or drop in form.
Points are scored for every on-field players and substitutes which vary between different games. The minutes of playing give a minimum of 1 point. The number of goals scored is awarded depending on the position which ranges from 6 or less. A player who provides a touch leading to a goal is awarded points based on its position. Keeping a clean sheet by defenders, goalkeepers, and midfielders attract different scores. When a goalkeeper saves a penalty, the player gets a bonus score added to the number of saves that are above 3. Similarly, tallies are removed when defenders, goalkeeper, and midfielder concedes a goal to break the clean sheet.
Yellow, red cards and missing a penalty kick by any on-field player give a negative score. A good feature of a fantasy football league is that it gives a choice of joining different leagues ranging from private leagues or public. Private leagues are created for friends, families, workmates, schoolmates to enjoy. The public leagues are available to all users to join from their choice of club and country of origin.

Fantasy hockey is similar to other fantasy games as they all try to compete to be the champion. It uses a distinct format of 15 maximum selections from any position including forwards, defensemen, goaltenders, and 5 bench men. Its score system is similar to soccer in goals, assists provided, saves, wins.
