    Hey guys, I’m creating an FPL league this year.

    I’m not planning on doing it for money but if there’s enough demand for it we can create another and I can facilitate it.

    For those new to this, it can be found here. https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/

    Edit: they do it differently over there, please create your team first and then join the league.

    go to join a private league and use this for the code: all7pd

    For those unfamiliar, it’s a salary cap format much like dfs. You have a full team and then a few bench options. Player costs rise and fall so like the stock market you can buy a guy when he’s low and sell him later for more money for a larger (or smaller budget) going forward. I too am not very familiar with it, I joined late last year and never quite figured it out.

    From my basic understanding, it’s about finding people who are going to consistently play because benches are short and you’re only allowed to make a few unpenalized transfers each week. Like weekly baseball leagues, once the slate begins, your choices are locked in, no late swap. So again, emphasis on a lesser player who plays most weeks over a very good player who only starts half the time.

    Hope to see more people in.

    Tried to sign up for your league, but the site said the code format was wrong. It should be number-number.

  • DFSx42

    hmm, that’s strange, I looked into it and here’s what it says:

    The code to join this league is: all7pd

    Did you enter it here? https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/join/private

    Let me know if it still doesn’t work

    I’m in.

    Private League Code

    Private league codes have the format NUMBER-NUMBER.

    Sorry for the trouble. Above is what came up when all7pd was entered in the private league code box.

    Hmm, that’s strange, it worked fine for me.

    brewzer, I think I may have discovered the issue, since FPL is one single team for all leagues, it may be possible that you need to first create your team then join the league

    someone else had a similar issue, they created their team first and then it worked

    looking forward to seeing you in there

    Thanks DFSx42. Think I am in.

    Was thinking week 1 I’d be a shoe in for first, still got topped somehow!!

  • DFSx42

    yeah i had a fantastic week and yet just middle of the pack

    i could be mistaken, someone please correct me if I’m wrong but you only get one free transfer per week but it will rollover to next week, but you can only have a maximum of 2

    doing more than 1 transfer per week can be suicidal as you take a penalty in points

    but… once each half of the season you get a one time use wildcard to be able to freely swap everyone out, most people use it after 2 months or so

  • brewzer1505

    Your understanding is the same as mine, one free transfer per game week ( can be saved up to a max of two) and one wild card each half season. Each non-free transfer costs four points.

    However, my understanding is limited because this is my first attempt. Six million teams entered, supposed to be one per person.
