Got what it takes? Sign up to DraftKings here and show it
With a $50,000 budget you select the 11 Premier League heroes you think will lead you to glory, bragging rights and financial reward – that's a goalkeeper, three defenders, three midfielders, two strikers and a pair of utility men who can fill any outfield position.
FFT’s stats boffins will be providing some weekly advice to keep you sharp to the under-the-radar points plunderers who could give you the edge, but DraftKings’ own tailored profiles give you the lowdown on your chosen men to keep you clued up on the areas that matter – that's injury news, recent match analyses and their scoring history.
Meanwhile, to keep the competition interesting you can pick from a number of competition types every week; from mega tournaments with guaranteed prize pools to one-on-one battles and even satellites that provide entry to contests with much larger prizes.
DraftKings also offers the opportunity to set up private contests against your mates – and win money off them in the process. You can set the field size, entry fee and the number of players who’ll get paid out.
