I'm still keen on doing some kind of score predictor game. It's less effort than a team based game.

They're not allowing 1-week teams this season so don't be surprised by the lower total compared to last season

There were 5mil+ managers/teams last season because a bunch of people entered new teams every GW to increase their chances of winning the weekly prize. It's been happening for years and they just put an end to it

Hey guys
I'm interested in setting up the draft again but I'm undecided between FPL and Dugout.

Dugout appears to be the better game but FPL have finally brought in trades so I'm trying
to figure out what is the best. Is there anyone interested in rejoining the draft league?

They have a mock draft on there that you can use now and it seems to be okay but yeah I agree, I don't 100% trust it.

I think Dugout works a lot better to be honest and I'd advocate going back to that.

They seemed to have improved their website substantially and I much prefer their scoring system where players like Kante are actual gems.

Fantrax also looks pretty decent and a lot of players recommend it as the best of the bunch fwiw

I'm in whichever the eventual choice is, even if I'll probably not check it as often as i should

Is there money league for non-draft? I'm feeling generous today!

Had a nice root around Fantrax and they have some really comprehensive configuration settings so I'm gonna set the draft league up there.
Customisation is really extensive, allowing me to adjust everything from waivers and trades to scoring systems and roster construction.
