Fantasy Football: 5 vital tips to help you win your mini-league

1 Be transfer savvy

If you really hold title ambitions you’ll need to be just as aware of your rivals’ teams as your own.

For mini-league leaders, it’s important to try and match the teams around you to ensure you can’t be overtaken.

Second guessing can be difficult but if you get it right there’s no way you can be beaten.

2 Think outside the box

Conversely if you’re trying to close that gap on your mini-league leader you need to come up with something.

While top six players are better percentage buys because of their heavier fixture schedules, you might need a couple of jokers in the pack to act as differentials.

We recommend picking in-form stars from the likes of Everton, Leicester and Newcastle who might not get picked as much as their top-six counterparts.

3 Pick Spurs players

We’re sticking our necks on the line.

If there’s one club to hedge your bets on, it might well be Spurs given their Champions League involvement and games against West Ham, Bournemouth and Everton.

Heung-min Son (£5.4m) is the obvious choice but he’s frustratingly suspended for the first leg against Ajax.

Lucas Moura (£2.9m) is a cheap alternative, while Christian Eriksen (£5m) and Danny Rose have come into some points of late (£3.7m).

4 Lose the United flops

Sorry Man United fans – we know things are bad enough right now, but to compound it we’d suggest ditching any Red Devils players you might still have.

The likes of Paul Pogba (£5.4m) and Marcus Rashford (£4.1m) have gone horribly off the boil and are two of the most transferred out players in April.

United’s Champions League exit means they have no added games and will have to try and keep Eden Hazard quiet on Sunday.

5 Be brave

Time to be bold. Now or never. Snooze you lose.

Say you’ve got a big points gap to close at the top of your mini-league; now’s the time to go with your gut on a player.

Instinct can sometimes trump meticulous preparation. Back yourself.
