2016 NWSL Fantasy League Signups

So I have decided that I will be creating my own NWSL Fantasy League and compete for fun here on Tumblr! If you’re interested, all you have to do is message me somehow, or reblog this post saying that you are interested. I will do this if I can get at least 25 people committed to doing this. After that, I will explain all the rules in detail.

NWSL Fantasy League Rules

First of all, just wanna say thank you to all of the people interested and hope that this will be a fun experience for all of you. This format of rules is based off of the Official BPL Fantasy League (which I’m in). So let’s get straight to the rules.


Selecting your First Squad:

Every person will begin by making a team of 15 players, selecting 2 goalkeepers, 5 defenders, 5 midfielders, and 3 forwards. You can choose anyone you like but there can only be a maximum of 3 players from each team. From there using your 15 players, you will choose your Starting XI, using any formation of your choosing (minimum of 3 defenders starting, max of 5). Once you are satisfied with your selections, you can submit your team to me using THE SUBMIT OPTION, not my messaging system or by the ask box, just to make it a bit easier for me to organize this.


Managing your Team:

Like mentioned before, using your 15 players, you will select your Starting XI, and that is where you will get your points. Your remaining 4 subs will be on your bench. You’ll have your backup goalie and 3 players that you will choose in order depending on who you want subbed in first. These subs will only get points if one of your players in your Starting XI does not play a single minute of the game. In that case, your first player will be automatically be put in your Starting XI, if they played that game.

You will also be selecting a captain and a vice-captain for your team. Whoever you select as your captain will get double the points. If your captain doesn’t play the game, then your vice-captain will get the double points.


Making Transfers:

After every match week, you can make only 1 TRANSFER for the next series of games if you are unsatisfied with any one of your players. You can choose any player you want. There is no transfer budget. If you decide not to use your free transfer one week, don’t worry, you’ll still have your free transfer. You will get another one the following week.


Chips:

Each person will get chips that you can use to help rack up some extra points. You can only use each chip ONCE so use your chips wisely. Here are the chips.

All-Out Attack - Your formation so that you can have a 2-5-3 formation for the next Gameweek
Bench Boost - Your bench will be able to receive points for the next Gameweek
Triple-Captain - Instead of your captain getting double the points, she will get triple the points.
Wildcard (can use twice in 1 season) - The wildcard will give you an unlimited number of transfers for the next Gameweek.


Points System:

*Assists will be lenient. For example, if a player shoots and it’s saved and someone rebounds the goal, the first shooter gets the assist.


You may submit to be your teams for the first weekend whenever you want, as long as it’s before April 16. If you have any questions about anything at all, feel free to ask me. I will still take more people if anyone is interested, but maybe I’ll cut it off at 100 since I have to do everything by hand. Anyways, below I’m tagging everyone who is participating so that they see the rules.
