    Lightbulb Fantasy Football World Cup 2018

    The official game opened today.

    Got a league going here:

    https://fantasy.fifa.com/en/leagues?...4654584E414A38


    Rules very similar to the EPL game with wildcard, maximum captain and bench boost.

    Top prize is a Kia Sportage

    Yours truly came 9th last time round 😎

    Good luck!

    ^seems a horrendous waste of a prime striker spot....


    wouldn't bother with Ronnie either. better value out there like my mate Jesus at 9m.

    That's why you'll finish in 9th, and I'll be about 90,000th.

    A comprehensive list of the realistic fantasy football options at every position and every price band. This is just my opinion, feel free to add to it or disagree with my choices. Trying to make all your lives easier by cutting down the huge player list to players that are guaranteed to start and might get some fantasy points. I've tried to get as many options in as I can and I'm also happy to try and justify any picks below. Starting with goalies and defenders, I've stayed away from leaky defenses, especially those with very tough games.

    Goalkeeper
    6.5m - DDG
    6m - Lloris, Alisson, Courtois, Patricio, Neuer
    5.5m - Muslera, Pickford, Ospina, Subasic,
    5m - Sommer, Schmeichel, Navas, Stojkovic, Ochoa, Olsen
    4.5m - El Kajoui, El-Hadary, Diallo
    4m - Uzoho

    Defender
    6.5m - Marcelo, Hector, Kimmich, Alba, Ramos
    6m - Meunier, Walker, Otamendi, Varane, Umtiti, Vertonghen, Pique, Alderweireld, Herrera, Pepe, Hummels, Boateng
    5.5m - Mendy, Rodriguez, Mina, Trippier, Giminez, Godin, Stones, Schar, Caceres, Sanchez, Guerreiro, Marquinhos, Danilo, Vrsaljko, Ivanovic, Odriozola, Lustig, Kolarov, Arias, Miranda, Sidibe,
    5m - Arnason, Lovren, Mbodji, Koulibaly, Benatia, Trauco, Augustinsson, Kjaer, Granqvist, Stryger Larsen, Reyes, Moreno,
    4.5m - Advincula, Hakimi, Saiss, Da Costa, Hegazy, Gabr, Varela, Mojica, Akanji, Dalsgaard, Hawsawi, Pouraliganji, Milenkovic, Ekong,
    4m - Sabaly, Idowu

    Following on from my earlier HT, here are the midfield options. I've gone for the players who are nailed on and have genuine attacking threat, hence why players like Asensio, Casemiro and Carlos Sanchez (Colombia) miss out.

    10m - De Bruyne
    9.5m - Mueller
    9m - Coutinho, Pogba, Kroos, Rodriguez, Eriksen, Ozil, Alli, Di Maria, Modric
    8.5m - Blaszczykowski, Isco, Shaqiri, Rakitic, Tadic, Guardado, Paulinho
    8m - Sigurdsson, Silva, Zielinski, Cuadrado,
    7.5m - Grosicki, Ruiz, Kovacic, Mario, Sanchez, Dos Santos, Samedov, Forsberg, Matuidi,
    7m - Gudmundsson, Dzemaili, Milinkovic-Savic, Mooy, Thiago, Ziyach, Delaney
    6.5m - Kagawa, Rogic, Carrasco, Ljajic, Larsson, Golovin, Borges, Bjarnason, Sung-yueng, Ja-Cheol,
    6m - Bolanos, Al-Shehri, Harit, Gudmundsson, Lo Celso, Cueva, Vecino, Jedinak, Boussoufa,
    5.5m - Claesson, Badri, Layun, Tapia, Uribe, Ekdal, Belhanda, Yotun, Schone, Al-Jassam,
    5m - Al-Dawsari, Al-Faraj, Lerma, Colindres, Bentancur, Nandez, Gunnarsson,
    4.5m - 0

    changed the team around a little after getting some good clean sheet/attacking odds.

    premium defence seems the way to go.

    cheaper midfield and strong attack.

    settled on the team now. double-ups on the big 5 teams with a smattering of argies and peruvians.

    On the home front, it seems james mcclean is looking to put his talents in the shop window in the hope of a big money move to...stoke.
