Football is undoubtedly the most watched sport in the world right now. It is also the only sport with a set of fans from all age groups, from children to adults and all through to the elderly people. This is because of so many reasons; this sport is easier to play and easier to understand. The rules are not very complicated as in other sports such as rugby, basketball or table tennis, among other games. For the love of football, Fantasy Premier League was created whereby you become a manager and manage your team, based on your selection of fifteen players from the clubs participating in the English Premier League. However, most of these fantasy managers do not understand some basic tips of making their teams better, which include the ones below.
A good Fantasy Premier Manager, should try to avoid defensive midfielders as much as you can. Though defensive midfielders are vital in a team's defence, they rarely score goals or create scoring chances, which is refered to as giving assists. Such players will cost you a lot of money but will give you very few points when games are played. It is so obvious that in most cases, they are assigned the roles of breaking the attack from the opponent and as a result of this, they tend to be rough hence occasionally booked by referees. As a good manager you should try to limit their number in your team.
Invest so much in good attacking midfielders and top strikers as these are the ones responsible for more goals. It would be wiser to spend more money in buying Mason Mount rather than buying Van Dijk. Although, this Van Dijk is more expensive than Mason Mount, he will rarely score goals or give assist and could be booked most of the time. Mason Mount will always give you more points because he plays near the opponent's goal and hence he is more likely to score more goals or give an assist. Good strikers and excellent attacking midfielders are the source of success in Fantasy Premier League and it is a good idea to look for expensive ones since these expensive players are better.
It is again not a good idea to select more than two players from the same team. Though, it is true that managers can only have three people from the same team but managers should only have one player or at most, two. This would limit the possibility of dropping so many points when a particular team fails to win a game. Making your selections from a wide range of teams will limit the number of points you drop. Do your selection after monitoring all the footballers in terms of how they have been playing in their previous games. Follow the pieces of advice from the scouts as they will make your choosing of your team easier.
Different games are approached differently and for this reason, you need to watch how your team and the kind of men in your team. Monitor how the opponents are and make a good choice of your team. For instance, it would not be wise to include Tammy Abraham of Chelsea when playing against a team like Liverpool, but it would be wiser to use Sergio Aguero instead of Tammy Abraham. Liverpool has got a strong defence and needs a striker with a lot of experience and with much strength. Abraham would be more suitable for teams like Everton and West Ham United because of his pace and skills.
Fantasy Premier league Managers are also advised to always consider set pieces and penalty takers. These are the group of footballers with special talents and who will always win the games during the dying minutes of the game. Some footballers are so good at scoring the last minute free kicks and some do not easily lose penalties. Therefore, when playing against defenders who commit numerous afouls, it will be vital to include good penalty takers and free kick specialists. For instance, when playing against Manchester United, playing Jorginho or Marcos Alonso will be an excellent idea, given the physical strength of Manchester United defenders. You will need those good men who can score free kicks and penalties because such defenders will commit a good number of defensive errors, either in the penalty area or outside the penalty area.
Good managing tips is what wil make one a good manager or a bad one. Master these tips and your team will be one of the best in the Fantasy Premier League. Again, remember to monitor how different clubs play and ensure you follow your team keenly to know who has flopped in terms of how they used to play. Don't select players based on their clubs or names but on their current forms.
