There may be weeks to go before the start of the 2019/20 season but you should not wait until the last minute to register your Fantasy Premier League team.
Leaving it late could count against you and leave you edged out by your Fantasy rivals.
The shrewder Fantasy managers out there are already signing up to gain a possible advantage.
That is because the speed with which managers register their FPL teams can affect their chances of winning mini-leagues and prizes.
If FPL managers finish the season with the same points total as a mini-league rival, top spot is awarded to the one who has made the fewest transfers.
But, if they have both made the same number of transfers, the manager who was first to register their team gains the highest ranking.
The same rules apply for the weekly and monthly prizes as well as the overall rankings.
Fantasy Premier League is a game of fine margins, so get your team in early to avoid ultimate disappointment.
