The Drafting Process

Having played fantasy football draft style using spreadsheets in the past, take if from me, the drafting process is simultaneously the most fun part of the game, as well as the most important. Your league season will be defined by decisions you make at this stage.

We'll break down the drafting procedure here and have a follow up article highlighting the key areas to think about when determining your drafting strategy.

Squad rules

▪There are no limits to how many players you can have from a single team

▪There are no prices/budgets. Salary cap leagues require this as a means to ensure that not all squads are the same collection of 15 superstars (even though, with the salary cap, they often end up being similiar collections of superstars/value players). The underlying principle of draft style fantasy football removes the requirement to have a salary cap.

Barnsley - Midlesborough (19.10.2013) / WON

On Who Will Score?

Bet Prediction: Over 2.5 (odd - 1.72, Bwin)

Barnsley have made their worst start in 42 years, are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Championship, have the leakiest defence in the division (shipped 27 goals in 11 games), and are three shy of conceding 2,500 home goals in league football.

The Teesside club boast nine different scorers of their 17 Championship goals (which includes one own goal); only Watford exceed that with 10.

The Championship's joint draw specialists have racked up a divisional-best eight points from matches where the opposition has scored first, but have also flittered away 12 points from winning positions.

It's a very good opportunity for both teams to gain position in the league table. They will fight!
