TKP Fantasy Premier League (Draft)

For those who participate in Fantasy Premier League (soccer), it looks like they have an option to do a draft-style league this year as opposed to the traditional format. This means it would be similar to regular fantasy football, where each player can be owned by only one team.

Based on their explanation (link), it's basically exactly the same as traditional fantasy football. No budget, 15-player squad, waivers, trades, etc. We can create up to a 16-team league. Anyone interested in playing? I'll still be playing traditional FPL as well and it looks like that league is already reactivated. So, this is in addition to and not instead of.

If you're interested, comment below with your email (use the email registered to premierleague.com if you already have an account) and I'll set it up.

Edit: Went ahead and created it. Draft is set for 8/1 at 800 PM as of now, but can be changed if needed. Go ahead and join with the info below.

I'm in! Typically 8 is the best size for draft league but I'm game for whatever

Yeah I wasn't sure of the ideal number of teams, just listing the max available. Could always create multiple if we have enough interest, but I don't anticipate that. Have they had this option before? I've never seen it.

Draft has been available a while now, at least 2+ years. Did an 8 team league last fall, quite fun!

Bump if anyone else wants to join. Drafting on Monday evening.

Joined. Looking forward to the season. First little one due in a couple months and the first outfit is a Liverpool onesie.

Not to completely hijack your plans, but I've been playing fantasy premier league for over five years on Fantrax. It's an obscure fantasy sports platform, but in my opinion, the superior fantasy EPL option as you can customize your scoring. Over the years, we've developed a pretty legit scoring system that I would be happy to share if interested. It not only awards your typical points for goals, assists, clean sheets, but also for meaningful contributions like tackles, shots on goals, etc. Just let me know!

Thanks, I'll check it out sometime. Think we'll stick to FPL for now as it's a bit late. But maybe we'll give it a try next year.

One more spot available for tomorrow nights draft if anyone is interested. No need to check, just use the info above to join.

Draft at 8 PM tomorrow (Monday).

30 mins!

I see you have the draft league, but is anyone in a salary cap league in there? I ended up putting a team together last week right before kickoff and didn't have time to post about a league...

Yes, we also have a salary league which I think is a carryover from last year. I'm not the admin for that one though, so I don't think I can invite people. The league is called Hokies FPL.
