What is Fantasy Football?

Fantasy Football is an online fantasy sports game that involves selecting a virtual team of real players from two real teams and scoring points on the basis of the performance of these players in a real-world match. As a user, you are the team selector in fantasy football and your aim is to select the best possible playing 11 from two opponent teams playing on a given day, score the highest points, and beat your competitors’ teams.

Select the 11 players (within the provided credits) who you think can score the most points for your team with their performance in the various departments of the game, like goal-keeping, defending, midfield and striking. The selection of the best players, of course, depends on several factors as it’s a real-match scenario.

Although some luck might increase your chances of winning, fantasy football is predominantly a game of skill that requires a good knowledge of the game and excellent analytical and predictive abilities. A good understanding of the game and a little bit of research will help you select the best players for a match and win the game.

Fantasy Football Scoring System

The scoring system in fantasy football works differently from fantasy cricket. For starters, the departments are completely different in the two sports and the way of playing is also different. There are goals instead of runs scored, tackles/assists instead of wickets taken, clean sheets instead of catches/stumpings/run-outs, negative points for disciplinary cards, etc. Here is how players score points in fantasy football:

  1. Every successful tackle or assist earns positive points.
  2. Every goal scored earns positive points.
  3. Every clean sheet earns positive points.
  4. Every penalty shot saved earns positive points.
  5. Every goal conceded receives negative points.

There are two disciplinary cards in football: Red and Yellow cards. Getting these disciplinary cards receives negative points.

  1. For every Yellow Card received: -1 point.
  2. For every Red Card received: -3 points.
  3. Any event during the Extra Time (in-game; not penalty shootout ) will receive points.

The goal is to score the most points, so selecting players who can perform their best in a real-world match is crucial. Some factors to take into account while selecting a team are as follows:

  1. Home/Away record
  2. Record against the opponent
  3. Current form and track record of players
  4. Captain and Vice Captain
  5. Strengths and weaknesses of players
  6. Availability of players

Note: Make sure to select the best player as your team’s captain (earns 2X points) and the second-best player as the vice captain (earns 1.5X points).

Please note that you will be eligible to win a cash prize, in a cash contest, only if your team is the highest-scoring team in that contest, or if your team gets a prespecified top rank in a multiple-winner contest. It is highly recommended that you participate in our free Practice Contests initially to gain confidence and then play Cash Leagues.
