"...the odds-makers have got him down as one of the favourites to be the first manager sacked in the Barclays Premier League. To be honest, they're 5000/1 to win the title and you know what, I don't think I'd even put a dollar on that". Twelve months on and few would disagree with Claudio Ranieri's description of 2015/16 Premier League season. Magic.
The new season is just around the corner and with it, Fantasy Premier League is back. After the thrills and spills of last year there's a lot to look forward to - I'm sure most of you know how this works by now, but if not there's an FAQ below as well as a link to the full list of rules. As far as I can tell there are no major changes from last year. Best of luck!
How can I join the (private) league?
First of all you must have entered a team in the game. Once you have a team, make sure that you have the correct league code (2776-1766) and that you are entering it in the format it is written.
How can I score points?
During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance in the Premier League.
What are chips?
Chips can be used to potentially enhance your team's performance during the season.
Only one chip can be played in a single Gameweek. The chips available are as follows:
The All Out Attack, Bench Boost and Triple Captain chips can each be used once a season and are played when saving your team on the my team page. They can be cancelled at anytime before the Gameweek deadline.
The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season, once in the first half of the season (before 31 Dec 14:00) and once in the second half of the season. The Wildcard chip is played when confirming transfers that cost points and can't be cancelled once played.
Where can I find a list of all the rules?
