What is Fantasy Football
Fantasy football is a fast-growing competition that thousands upon thousands play each year.

There are many different things that can happen for you to get as many points as possible which is explained below. Our aim is to give you that head start when going up against friends and family to try and finish on top come the end of the season. It is a long season meaning you need to try and keep on top of it week after week. Our expect tipsters will update this page every week by Thursday evening at 18:00 to give you loads of time to update your team going into the weekend’s fixtures using our fantasy football tips.
How does fantasy football work
Fantasy football is easy to work once you get your head around it. Before the season starts, you will be given a set amount of money that you need to use wisely to put together the very best squad. Different players are priced differently with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez & Harry Kane towards the high end of the market. This makes it interesting as you will struggle to get many of the top players into the same squad, meaning you have to pick your players very wisely. New signings generally start at a lower price unless they are already a well-known player around the world. So if you have someone come into your club or maybe a rivals club and think they could be a hit, it may be a good idea to get them in there earlier.
Each week you will be scored depending on how all of your players do. There are many things that your players can be rated on, with goals obviously being the biggest point booster in the competition. Below we explain how all points can be made. Fantasy football is used on the English top flight, the Premier League. With the Premier League being one of the biggest leagues in the world, it is fun to do as everyone tends to know players in the league.
Once you have made your team, before the beginning of the season you can change it as many times as you want. However, once the season commences you will be restricted to just one free transfer each game week. If you are wanting to change more than one, you will need to let go of four points for each extra transfer. If you do not use your transfer one week, you will be able to use two the following, but you will never be allowed more than 2.
Throughout the season you will also get the chance at using four different wild cards.
All-out attack – This wild card allows you to go very attractively one week using a 2-5-3 formation. You want to try and use this on a gameweek you think there will be loads of goals as you can only use it once a season.
Bench boost – This wild card allows you to get all of your points from the players on your bench as well as the 11 players. This is a great one to get loads of points and edge away from your competitors.
Triple captain – This one explains it in the title. Whoever you have as your captain will get 3x the points when you use this wild card. Usually your captain will get double, but this one could be the difference come the end of the season.
Wildcard – This could be the most important one you use throughout the season. It is hard to work out when you want to use these, but the wildcard allows you to change your entire squad for a gameweek. This is great to use if you have a number of injuries or suspensions
What fantasy football tips we offer here at SBAT
Here at SBAT, we want to try and help you do as good as possible throughout the season. Each week our expert tipsters will update the page, bringing you our tips on who you should put into your squad, who you should drop, players to keep an eye on, players to look at dropping, our best team of the week and players who are currently suspended or injured. We spend hours each week researching to see who the best picks are.
There are many different things that we take into consideration when picking our very best fantasy football tips. For example, if one week a player is on fire and up against one of the teams lower down in the league, we would suggest getting him in your squad. But this could also be the opposite way around. If a player is on good form but has a few weeks against tough opponents such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal, it may be worth getting him out as you could be losing points.
If a defensively solid team is coming up against 2 sides who are struggling to score in the next two weeks, we will bring you the best tips making sure you can pick out those hidden gems to increase your chance of getting maximum points week in, week out.
Another thing we need to take into consideration is the double weeks. On some occasions, your players will go into weeks where they may play 2-3 times in a single week, meaning you want to try and get as many players from that team into your team as possible as it could bring you in a lot of points.
We look into all this intensively to make sure we are always bringing you the very best tips for fantasy football.
