OT: 2020-21 Hokies Fantasy Premier League (FPL)

As two-time defending champion, I'd figure I'd make a thread inviting the other soccer fans on the boards! The game is now live, but fixtures have yet to be announced.

Aubameyang, Rashford, and Greenwood are now classed as midfielders, Martial and Richarlison are now classes as forwards, and there were hefty price rises for Bruno, Jimenez, and KDB. Coupled with heavy hitting additions for Chelsea in Ziyech and Werner (and eventually Havertz?!), there's no clear template team coming into the season and it should be WIDE open and bundles of fun.

Hokiebone reactivated our minileague and the code is: xx0j8l

Aubameyang as a midfielder?

I can't think of any reason why they'd do that but it's the only time I've been 100% sure of a 12 pound pick.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

Typically wide forwards are classed as mids

Link?

That's a good step. Now how in the hell do I join a league?

I think you have to set your team first and then you can put the code in the leagues tab

If you click the link it automatically puts you in the league. I put in the code and it kept telling me I was already in the league and I couldn't figure out what I had done.

I made my team๐Ÿ˜Ž

YEAH HERE WE GO

Godspeed everyone I hope we make it too the cup๐Ÿ˜€

What would the Liverpool starting 11 cost? Asking for a friend...

You're limited to a maximum of 3 players from a given side for FPL anyway, but the answer is 82.5m out of your 100m budget with 4 bench slots left to fill

Umm can you draft anyone you want and other people can have them too?

Yes, it's not quite the same as fantasy football. Your goal is to pick the best team from the entire pool of players, making changes as the season goes on. So technically, you could have the same team as someone else, but you can only make one transfer per week without losing points so that doesn't happen too often. The rest of the rules are on the website if you're not familiar with how it works.

Looking forward to starting the season knowing what I'm doing this time around lol

I'm not looking forward to you getting incredibly lucky again on top of it. You made such wiggity wack picks early last year but somehow got returns --- Ndombele? Harry Wilson? Goals each.

Completely off-topic but I thought this would be a good forum as it would only irritate a few people. My previous Yellowstone trip fell through as my buddy bailed on me so I'm going solo next week-if you're still going hit me up on [mod edit: got it!]. My name is Andrew...gonna start in the SW corner of the park on Tuesday and work my way over to the south side. Just FYI-there's limited cell reception in the park so it might be tough to meet up but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Yeah that 100 point GW one was very lucky. The only time I got more than that was coming back from the restart when there were all sorts of teams playing two games in the same week.

This season is gonna be weird as crap with the transfer window open till october. Gonna wait to pick my team till the week of the seasons return but I'm definitely in.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

You can make unlimited transfers up until match day 1 so unless you're worried about prices changing you don't really need to wait.

Some of you all made some REAL curious decisions lol... looking at APrimusHokie's decision to triple captain kane for 6 total points. Someone else hit the bench boost and only got points from Leno (who got 7) because MCI and MUN were inactive

The Bench Boost was me and was accidental. Also worth noting I have no fucking clue what I'm doing. I'm hoping Fantasy Bundesliga goes better.

first year of FPL is always low-key brutal as the strategy and interface aren't always super intuitive.

it's a long season and there are always total duds even when/if you make the "right decision"!

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Put up a fat 17 points this week as both Bruno and Grealish are off this GW but should be in next week along with Pulisic. Might move Kane out for a liverpool or City player though as he might have a stinker with the team hes on.
