What Is English Premier League Fantasy Football?

May 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 176

Most people have heard of Fantasy Football if they like to watch soccer. We are talking here about the English Premier League which is recognised as the most exciting football (soccer) league in the world.

The idea is that a player signs up to a fantasy football league and then uses their knowledge and the statistics available to select the best players from all the real football teams and make up their own dream team.

Imagine taking Rooney from Manchester United and Joe Hart from Man City. If you could pick a whole team of your dreams from the finest players in the Premier League, you assume that you would win all the matches, right?

Well in a fantasy league, you can do just that. By watching the games and examining the performance of each player you will be able to choose what you think is the team that is most likely to beat the competition. Now this is where it gets fun.

The fantasy football league that you sign up to keeps track of all the statistics for each player from the matches in real life. So for goalies, they know how many goals they saved. For strikers they know how many goals they scored. And it goes on. This information is taken from the actual football matches that take place in the Premier League.

Your players each score points based on their real life performance. And your fantasy football team gets a score based on the scores of the players added together. Each fantasy football league has their own fantasy football rules which decide how many points are awarded to players for various actions. For instance, if a player scores a goal, they might be awarded 5 points, but if they are sent off (red card) they get -4 points.

The choice of fantasy football league that you make is important. Some are free, where others you must pay to join. Some offer some really great statistical analysis tools so that you can make the best informed choice about the players to put in the team of your dreams.

Almost all of these leagues offer prizes for the top performers, some are better than others of course, but there is a lot of cash at stake, or even cars and houses for the very best players. Obviously, if you join a popular league that is offering half a million pounds as a top prize then you will have to work really hard to beat the best people out there.It is worth getting to the top so you can pick up some really great prizes.

The best fantasy leagues in my opinion are those that offer access to more real football leagues than just the English Premier League. If you are lucky, the league that you join will offer you players from other football leagues too so you'll have a better choice of players to make up your Dream Team. If you get into a free premier league fantasy football game with prizes then you will at the very least have loads of fun, and you might even win something big!

My favourite Fantasy Football League is It has great statistics, excellent prizes, it's multi league and all my friends are on it too.
