12 FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE! TIPS!

12 Fantasy Football tips, plus the code to the official BBC MOTD mag mini league!

1) GO 3-4-3 AS YOUR FORMATION!

This setup averages 66.2 points a game – 4.7 more points than 4-5-1!

2) PICK CLUB PEN TAKERS!

VAR will be in effect this season so their could be a hat-full of pens this season – hello, James Milner!

3) GO EASY ON newcastle, norwich and Crystal palace players at first!

Expected to have difficult seasons – these clubs also face top clubs during the same game week on eight occasions!

4) DON'T RELY ON YOUR WILDCARD

Try and pick a team that gets you to gameweek 6, 7 or 8 when we’ll have a better idea of formations, starters and form!

5) beat the system!

Players like Ayoze Perez and Sadio Mane are down as midfielders but in reality will play in forward positions!

6) know the new boys!

Read up on the ins and outs this summer! New players can be risky, but at least remember not to pick Romelu Lukaku!

7) make your defenders full-backs!

More likely to take up forward positions, weigh in with assists and maybe even contribute with a 6-point goal!

8) save triple captain!

Use this chip on a reliable player when they have a double gameweek!

9) HAVE A CHEAP BENCH!

78% of players on the benches of the top 1,000 Fantasy Managers last season cost £5m or less!

10) Get harry maguire and alex iwobi in!

On average, every player that has moved from one Prem club to another has improved their points year on year!

11) Don't miss deadlines!

The Gameweek 2 deadline is in…
