Top 5 / Top 10 117 // 13 Aug 2018, 12:11 IST SHARE The Premier League is back in action and with it, the excitement of the Fantasy Premier League. The opening gameweek lived up to all the expectations and was filled with goals and points for the Fantasy managers. As with every year, there were a number of potential high scoring options that many players wish they'd have picked up for their team.Price manipulation is a tough task for Fantasy managers and picking up certain high scoring budget options is key to accommodating the other high hitters who come at a premium.

Cheikhou Kouyate moved from West Ham to Crystal Palace this summer, but will he kick … [Read more...] about 10 of the most rib-tickling Fantasy Premier League team names

As the new football season approaches, it seems that the Premier League gets to enjoy all of the fun as the popular online game Fantasy Premier League returns for a new season. For those unfamiliar, it's a game in which each player is given a £100m budget to build a team of 11 first team players, and four substitutes with the aim of scoring as many points each week. These points are awarded based on different criteria for each position i.e. clean sheets for goalkeepers and defenders, and assists and goals scored for midfielders and attackers.
