    Repectable 2nd. I'm really pissed off that Emerton got his ban overturned, I didn't pick him this week 'cos I thought he was suspended and in fact he wasn't and goes and scores a shed load of points :oops_sign

    @ Caution - Monday night games get included in the points for that week as well so some times you might need to wait until Monday night to get the full picture :thumbsup:

    If you do more than one transfer a week you get deducted -4 points, right?

    Need to get rid of a few people in my squad already....

    Re: Re: The Official Dnbforum Fantasy Football League Thread.....

    oh right, is that how it all works is it?
    it all goes on how well the people actually play in the real league? oh well that makes sense, ehe, was wondering how they figured it out..

    im thinking maybe picking a team of people with red card track records probably wasnt such a good idea then hahaha
    though it sort of worked this week ehehe

    Yep, that's right.

    Sometimes it's better to take the 4 point penalty in the long run. Also the value of players doing well goes up as more and more people transfer them into their teams so you might not be able to afford them in a few weeks.

    I think you've got him as a sub, need to have them in the actual team to score points :)

    Re: Re: The Official Dnbforum Fantasy Football League Thread.....

    I think that in the event of your main keeper not playing he is replaced by the substitute keeper. I think that pretty much goes for all positions where you have a sub for that particular position on the bench.

    Is this right or am I babbling?

    Not quite right, it doesn't always substitute one player for you sub in the same position, for outfield players it depends on the order of preference you've set for the subs.

    For example if a midfielder doesn't play and your preferred sub is a defender it will sub the defender in for the midfielder :thumbsup:
