I have taken part in this for a number of seasons and am more than happy to set up a 'Planet Spurs' league if enough members are interested. Any takers?

last season is first one I've sat out of for a while as I was away when season started. I'd be up for it if enough people are.

Three of us signed up so far. Hours of fun throughout the season, and when involved you really will start to give a damn about Watford playing Brighton on a Monday night!

I think you do Tom, but you can have multiple alterations up until the day the season kicks off, so there iare no penalties at all by picking now. I've already modified my squad several times!

So for the fantasy football noob (at least the World’s definition of football, not the American one) what are the rules, how does one score points to win?

Goallies get points for clean sheets and saves
Defenders get points for clean sheets, assists and goals scored
MFs get points for clean sheets (although only 1 point compared to 4 pts for defenders and goalies), assists and goals
Forwards only for assists and goals scored

There are also bonus points for clearences, blocks, succesfull passes etc but this is based on more complicated algorithm and generally players who were best on the pitch usually get bonus points.

yup - basically USA you pick a team and a few subs with a limited budget that you believe will get the most points for clean sheets, assists and goals each week. Maximum 3 players from any one team. Only PL games count. You can pick a captain each week who gets double points, and a vice captain who gets double points only if your captain doesn't play a single minute of the game. This is how you really rack up points, e.g. captaining Kane if you think he's going to bag a hat trick.

You can make 1 transfer a week without points deductions (as long as that transfer is within your overall budget). If you don't use your transfer any given week it rolls over to the next week, but you can only have a maximum of 2 transfers without points deductions. You also get 1 wild card a season where you can make as many transfers as you like without points deductions so save this til you have multiple injuries/bans or whatever.

Players who perform well's values go up, and the opposite if they perform poorly. The players in the team will be valued somewhere between what you paid for them and their current value, so e.g. you sign someone cheap who bags tons of goals - if you sell him you'd make a slight profit but if you bought him back he'd be full price.

Typically you want some big scoring players and some steady cheaper ones that you can sub in for when players get injured or are playing tough away fixtures and you don't think they'll get much from it.

The key is to stay on top of it too. If you set it up at the beginning of the season and abandon it you'll probably do quite badly, ideally you want to be updating your starting XI every week to pick the best options for that gameweek's fixtures (e.g. pick the goalie that's playing a team who struggle to score, not the one playing Man City).

There's more but that's the basics.

The beauty of this game is that almost EVERY game in the PL actually has some interest. You can slag Poch off all you like, but to manage a Fantasy team exposes to you ( at a ridiculously low level) the pitfalls and problems of steering a team through a season. Really worth giving it a go.

So it has a salary cap (for lack of better term). Got it. I was wondering if there was a draft where only one person can have one player, or if it was a salary cap type like on draftkings.

I'll join later, I played a full season last year for the first time ever. I often ruin a players performance by picking him as my Captain and never ever pick a Goon
