Most Fantasy Sports rules that guide the interaction between Fantasy players and Fantasy Hosting sites vary depending on the type of Fantasy Sport. The majority of Fantasy Sport rules touch on the selection of the initial squad as well as its management, transfers, chips, deadlines, scoring, leagues and not to mention the cup competitions. It's important to narrow the discussions to Fantasy Football rules since FSGA has indicated that close to 78 percent of Fantasy fans in the US play this game. The first rule that gamers will be expected to apply when they join the Fantasy platforms touch on the selection Fantasy team.
Each Fantasy Football player is supposed to set up a Fantasy team of fifteen players, including two goalkeepers, five defenders plus midfielders, and three forwards. More importantly, the budget of your initial squad should never go beyond £100 million. Before the end of a Gameweek, you'll be required to come up with the list of your eleven players that will be responsible for bringing points. When a player who is in your starting lineup fails to start in the actual game, they'll automatically be replaced by others from the bench. Your team will follow any formation provided it has a goalkeeper, as well as three defenders, are in your squad. Gamers are required to select the captain together with vice-captain for their respective Fantasy teams and this part is crucial since points will be awarded whenever they participate in any actual match.
Ideally, when your captain fails to start in the Gameweek he will be replaced by his assistant. Things could turn uglier when the two fail to start in any match forcing you to drop a few points. Under normal circumstances, your points will double when either captain or his assistance plays during a Gameweek. Having a strong bench will help in ensuring that your team remains strong even when some players in your starting lineup are substituted. After the selection of your initial squad, you'll be allowed to strengthen your team in a transfer market that comes with some rules. Although unlimited transfers will come at no cost, any transfer that will be made within the same Gameweek will see four points deducted from your total score.
Gamers that fail to utilize free transfers will have another chance to request transfers in the following Gameweek. Although the price for players varies depending on the popularity, this price is expected to remain constant during one week of play. If you want to enhance the performance of your team in a given season, you should consider using chips. The only condition is to ensure that you don't use more than one chip per single week of playing. Chips come in multiple forms, including bench boosts, free hit, triple captain and to say nothing of wildcards. While bench boosts will see scores awarded to your substitute included in the total scores, the triple captain is there to ensure that the scores of your captains are tripled. Both the free hit and wildcards are more vital whenever the issue of transfers pops up.
Equally important, changes to your Fantasy team must follow strict adherence to the deadline so that the team can be ready before the next match. These deadlines are subject to changes that can happen 90 minutes before the real kick-off. You'll also receive a clean score when your team fails to concede a goal while on the pitch. Conceding a goal when a player has been substituted won't affect your clean sheet bonus. The situation will change when a player is red-carded which will attract lots of penalties for any conceded goal apply.
To make matters worse, red card deductions will include all the scores deducted from yellow cards. There are bonuses awarded to a player that will provide an assist even if it was unintentional. This condition changes when an opponent makes a final touch on a ball before a goal is scored. If a member of your team puts pressure on the opponent by creating an own goal, then you'll be awarded your own goal bonuses. In case of a goal resulting from a free-kick or penalty, you'll also receive an assist bonus. Other factors that are put into consideration while awarding bonuses include finalizing assists, rebounds, length of play together with others.
