    I gave up on the H2H league a long time ago, but I'm two points behind 3rd in my office league and it's a guy I reeeeaaaally want to beat.

    And the golden boot, which admittedly will be a struggle for Sanchez to win after Kanes performance the other day but its still a factor, along with Arsenals desperate attempt to finish in the top 4.

    Not even in the pissing squad :facepalm:

    I couldn't really have brought anyone else in anyway, but I thought I might get the 2 attendance points :(

    A "hamstring injury".

    Get him on the fucking pitch :mad: Even if he just stands between the penalty spot and the edge of the 18 yard box he's got a better chance of scoring than the rest of the team!

    No King for Bournemouth is the only team news really affecting me this week I think.

    I'm starting to think captaining Sanchez against Everton rather than one of three Spurs midfielders against Hull might have been a mistake... :hmm:

    Then again, I still remember 5-1 against Newcastle on the last day of the season :D

    It's anyone's guess today. No Josh King, that's fer shure. I'm not looking at the rest. Will just watch the Liverpool game and that's it.

    I'm just sad it's all over :( Roll on mid-July. <Insert piece of passage of time wisdom here>

    Guy above me has King and Valencia, which is in my favour.

    However, he's also captained Costa, which could be dangerous for my chances :(

    Ooooh, the drama! Sod the Champions League spots, this is where the action's happening! :D

    My highest non-gimmick-week score ever, yay :) Not convinced its enough to win my h2h game though, its going to come down to bonus points and I dont think I will win although too early to be sure.

    2nd in the office league looked a possibility at various points during the afternoon, but looks like I'll end about 7 points shy :(

    In the H2H, an unceremonious drop from last season's heroic charge at the top to the bowels of the league.

    Onto next year!

    Wahey I got 100 points once my sub comes on and it looks like that wasnt enough to win my h2h this week, a draw I think because I spent 4 on transfers!

    A fun end to the fantasy season.

    An average season. Let down by losing my first 8 in a row in H2H.

    Yeah thanks to everyone who played, it was fun at times. Hope there are more teams and players on form in the prem league next season though, choices were a bit limited throughout much of this season, looking forward to real-world transfers shaking things up.

    Only just seen this, can we make it work for u75?

    What is FPL Draft?
    The Scout says: A brand new twist on Fantasy Premier League, FPL Draft is free to play and will complement the regular game.

    You can take on your friends in private leagues made up of 2-16 managers or enter public leagues with strangers of up to eight managers.

    Your squad must be made up of 15 players, consisting of two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.

    Each Premier League player can only be in one league squad.

    A draft will take place with managers taking it in turns to make their player selections.

    Sounds exciting but, just to clarify, there are now two games for FPL fans?

    The Scout says: Yes, there are now two games to play.

    1) The original Fantasy Premier League game with a £100m budget – this will launch in the week commencing 10 July.
    2) The new FPL Draft game that will launch in the week commencing 17 July.

    You can enter squads in both games, and they are both free to play.

    What size league works best?

    The Scout says: With each squad in a league unique, we have found that up to eight teams is the optimum size for a private league.

    Public leagues will all consist of eight teams.

    Is there a squad budget?

    The Scout says: Player prices are not featured in FPL Draft.

    A squad is selected through the draft process, with the order of picks deciding selection.

    How does the draft work?

    The Scout says: Before the draft process begins, a random order is generated which will "snake" from round to round of picks until all squads in a league are completed.

    In a “snake draft” the pick order is reversed each round, for example:

    Round 1: Team A, Team B, Team C, Team D
    Round 2: Team D, Team C, Team B, Team A

    Do I gain an advantage by picking first?

    The Scout says: No, not at all. You might get your top priority player in the first round but, when you come to pick again – last in round 2 – you may find that your other main targets have been selected.

    In this way, the draft ensures that all managers have the opportunity to choose competitive and balanced squads.

    When will the draft take place?

    The Scout says: The administrator of a private league can decide the date and time of the draft. This must be completed before the Gameweek 1 deadline at 6.45pm on 11 August.

    In a public league, the draft will take place around 24 hours after the first team joins.

    What if I cannot make the draft?

    The Scout says: Before the draft, each manager can create a watchlist of players, listed in priority order, representing their top targets for each position.

    If you are absent for the duration or for any part of the draft, the watchlist is used to automatically make selections on your behalf.

    If no Watchlist is selected, draft ranks are used to prioritise automatic selections.

    Each player in the game is given a draft rank based on their total points last season and/or their potential for points in 2016/17.

    How does my team score points?

    The Scout says: Players collect points in the same way as they do in the traditional Fantasy Premier League game.

    There is one exception – an FPL draft squad does not have a captain or vice captain.

    How do I make transfers?

    The Scout says: After the draft, managers can make changes to their squads in two ways.

    They can submit a “waiver request” for a new player or make a direct transfer from the free agents pool.

    There are no direct transfers between managers.

    What is a free agent?

    The Scout says: A free agent is a player who was not selected in the draft. These players can be swapped into squads 24 hours prior to the Gameweek deadline during the Free Agency mode.

    New players added to the game, or players released by other managers do not immediately become free agents.

    Initially, they can only be signed through a waiver request.

    What are waivers?

    The Scout says: Similar to the draft process; a waiver ensures that all managers get the chance to pick up new signings or players released by other managers.

    You make a waiver request when proposing to swap a player in your squad with an unselected player in the same position.

    These requests are processed 24 hours before the Gameweek deadline.

    Any number of waiver requests can be made, if you make more than one they will need to be prioritised.

    How do waivers work?

    The Scout says: A round of waivers runs once a week.

    On the waiver deadline, a process will look through all the requests and make the transfers.

    The lowest ranked team will get their first waiver choice.

    Before the season starts the waiver order will be the reverse of the draft order.

    Once a waiver request is successful, the team in question will move to the end of the waiver queue for that Gameweek.

    After waivers are processed, free agency mode will be active until the Gameweek deadline.

    When will FPL Draft be available?

    The Scout says: FPL Draft will be released in the week commencing 17 July.

    Fantasy Premier League is due to launch in the week commencing 10 July.

    Bugger, didn't catch the "week commencing" bit.

    It's a bloody power play.
