Fantasy football draft league

Recommended Posts

There's been a few mentions on the paid fantasy league thread about starting a draft league so thought a separate thread might be handy.

I'm going to create a league through the main fpl site, and set a draft Day of Friday (to catch as many transfers as possible) and will organise a time to suit as many people as possible.

If you're interested in giving this a go (please bear with me as I've not done one of these before!) Then leave a comment below with the best time for you for the draft to take place!

Just to add this will be free and just for bragging rights!

There's a maximum of 18 teams so will be on a first come first served basis!

Friday, I am working until half 4 so wouldn't be available until after that, if that lines up with everyone else?

Yes I’m in. Just a quick note. You don’t have to be around at the time of the draft to play. You can select a list which will pick for you automatically. The quicker you set up the league, the quicker players can enter and select their lists.

Mate If you're going to do a draft league, do it through an app other than the official site.

The reason being, the scoring is very limited on the official game - goals, assists, clean sheets and bonus points. When you think about a draft league, you generally have 10-12 teams, thats 140 players - there's not 140 players in the league that are any use in fantasy with official scoring! It leaves the free agent pool completely unusable and you tend to get no trades because you can only do likenfor like trades 

I recommend fantrax with togga scoring. Basically this means as well as the normal scoring metrics, players get points for key passes, tackles, aerial duels, interceptions, dribbles.. pretty much everything on the pitch. It means more players are useful and you can be more tactical about who you pick up and when.

Sorry, i hadn't finished haah

You can also change your team right up to the kick off of every match. Ie if you have one player left to play in the last game of the weekend and he's benched, you can swap him for another player who is playing either from your bench or the free agent pool. 

I've been playing draft for years and this is far and away the best format, although it does tend to take over your life a little at the weekend! - if you want to chat more about it if be happy to give you the lowdown and give you a hand setting it up if you prefer this

Haha fair. Probably not enough time to prep. Definitely worth thinking about it for next season if you enjoy the official draft.

    • I think we do need a foreign manager in as they just seem to have better connections as we would never of signed Kike Stuani, Ramirez if Karanka wasn't Spanish didn't speak the language. That's the trouble hard with English manager they don't speak the language or get the culture that puts us at disadvantage in recruitment when most flair players are foreign 
    • @Erimus 63 I am not sure how from my post you came to conclusion i was in adoration of Gibson. In fact i actually state “gibson is not perfect”. To be fair no owner is. People who are fans of Gibson can point to justifiable reasons why. And people who are not fans of his can also make some justifiable reasons as to why they are not. I can appreciate both sides of argument. However, the point of my post was to simply say “the grass is not always greener on the other side”.   Do I want to see if the grass is greener? Not really. I see other clubs who were similar in size to us during our PL days and look at where some of them are now and I really dont wish to take the risk. Yes under new ownership, we might end up back in PL but there is also just a good a chance we might end up falling down the leagues and as @Blanco rightly said ultimately not end up existing at all.  For that reason I am not actively going to champion Gibson should leave or sell the club. For all his faults I know he genuinely give a sh*t about this club and wont let us follow the journey that unfortunately some of the other clubs our size have in recent years. And that will more than do for me.
    • I don’t want Gibson to sell the club. However, I do want him to delegate his powers to a Director of Football. Much in the same way that whilst Delia Smith is a great cook, she knows her limitations running a football club in an efficient and effective manner so appointed Stuart Webber to do this. Gibson just rates himself too highly to think that anyone could possibly do this better than him. The Evening Gazette and BBC Tees portray any criticism of Gibson as fans wanting him to sell the club, but it’s not that at all. I think the vast majority want him to be our owner, just not the key decision maker as he’s not very good at it.
    • That is absolute BS. There would be no club without Gibson. The stupid vilification of him is what has to stop.
