Fantasy Premier League Draft is back for 2019/20, offering a different way to play the world’s most popular Fantasy football game.
The game is free to play and runs alongside the Fantasy Premier League season, using the same scoring system.
Like in FPL, Fantasy managers also pick a 15-man squad in FPL Draft.
But there is one big difference. Each player can be owned by only one manager in each mini-league.
There are no player prices and no budgets in FPL Draft, with managers instead using a draft system to build their opening squads.
In the draft, each manager takes their turn to select players over 15 rounds.
The order of picks is decided randomly at first and will then "snake" from round to round, with the order of selection reversed each time.
Round 1: Team A, Team B, Team C, Team D.
Round 2: Team D, Team C, Team B, Team A.
If you are not yet signed up to Fantasy Premier League you will need to register an account. You can do so here.
Then you just name your team and join a league.
Managers should note that they will only be able to access the game on the Premier League mobile app once they have downloaded the latest app release on Android or iOS, which will be available in the Stores today.
You can create a private league of up to 16 managers and invite friends to get involved. Or you can join one that they have set up using the league code.
You can also choose to be in a public league that has four, six or eight managers.
The date of the draft is set by the league administrator, while drafts in public leagues will take place within 30 minutes after the first team joins.
There is the opportunity to take part in a mock draft, allowing you to experience the draft process before doing one for real.
Before the draft, Fantasy managers can build a watchlist of players to pinpoint key targets.
This watchlist will be used to automatically select a player if you are not available to make a pick.
Once the draft has finished, you can change your squad before and during the season using waiver requests, by signing players who are free agents or by trading players with mini-league rivals.
