Rules We'll be drafting 15 player squads, no more than 3 from any club (2 gks). With a bidding budget of 200m. But the most important thing to keep track of, is how much your squad costs on the game. So you're managing two budgets: The 100m game budget & your 200m bidding budget. Teams will be entered into a league on the official fantasy football game at the end. http://fantasy.premierleague.com/ League is called: The Premier League Draft Code is: 425103-110641 Player price list: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/player-list/ This is the format we'll be using... Round 1: Bid for defenders Round 2: Draft defenders Round 3: Bid for midfielders Round 4: Draft midfielders Round 5: Bid for strikers Round 6: Draft strikers Round 7: Bid for goalkeepers Round 8: Open Draft then this format til the end... Round 9: Open bids Round 10: Open draft Bidding Highest bidder wins. If two or more managers bid the same amount for the same player the manager with the most money left in their game budget acquires their target. If there's no single cheapest squad then no one gets the player & they're available in the draft round. In the first bidding round only, there'll be rebids as no one will have spent anything. If a player is in the game you can bid for them, if not you can't. So it's not enough for a team to have signed them, they need to be in the game so we can ascertain their value. Draft round The bid for the lowest value player picks first in the draft rounds. Draws are decided by who has spent the least in the game budget going first. Then it goes to bidding budget. If bids & squad costs are deadlocked the order will be decided by a randomizer. Keep track of your budget If at the end of the game you're over your game budget you'll have to organize trades with other managers to get within it. If you fail to organize trades then the manager who has spent the least will get to trade any player from you they like. If there's more than one manager over budget then the manager with the least expensive squad can pick who they want to trade with. Then the manager with the 2nd least expensive squad will get to pick who they want to trade from the remaining teams & so on. If you're over your bidding budget you'll have to wait until everyone has picked their squads to make your picks. If more than one is over we'll use the bidding/draft format again. One more round after the transfer window closes After the transfer window closes there will be one draft round where managers have the opportunity to replace any member of their team with a player brought into the Premiership after the draft (as long as they can afford them). The order will be least points first, ties decided by team value. Play the game as normal Once you've drafted your team the only restriction is on transfers. So you can choose anyone as captain from week to week or pick anyone in your squad to play.
