28 red hot Fantasy Premier League tips from old winners and experts
5. Forget the new signings
Don’t go overboard on new arrivals. It’s easy to succumb to the allure of a big-name signing, but there’s a definite risk in overloading your squad with players unproven in the Premier League. Give them time to acclimatise then reconsider if they show signs of settling.
6. Which games to target?
Always keep an eye on the fixtures. Those teams with favourable upcoming schedules are more likely to bring in the points, so it’s wise to be aware of runs of easy or tough fixtures and plan your transfers accordingly.
7. Always check the injury news
A long-term lay-off can suddenly promote players from the fringes and has the potential to offer us a cheap option with the security of starts.
8. You'll need a strong bench
Keep your squad well stocked for Christmas. The threat of rest and rotation is rife over the festive period and strong benches are essential as top-flight managers shuffle their options to cope with the hectic fixture list.
