Because nothing beats strutting into work and telling your pals, 'I told you so'.

The Premier League kicks off Friday evening as Liverpool host newly promoted Norwich City in the top flight's curtain raiser.

While Pep Guardiola, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co have spent the summer preparing their teams for the opening weekend and beyond, the pressure on their shoulders is nothing compared to that which fantasy football managers up and down the country feel.

Captain choices, when to play certain special chips and what bargain buys to go for are all things which fill the heads of fantasy players on a weekly basis, and it's safe to say it dominates a lot of football chat throughout the season.

There is of course a knack to doing consistently well in these sorts of games, and while there is always an element of luck involved, you can take certain steps to maximise your output.

The more casual fantasy football player might say that people take it a bit too far, but with massive sums of money on offer from the likes of The Sun, as well as those personal wagers with pals, there is everything to play for and more heading into the 2019/20 season.


Football, WWE, NBA, Pokemon, Star Wars, Breaking Bad. Father to two humans and one dog. At my most stressed when getting beat on NBA2K and blaming 'laggy internet' for all losses.
