No matter how long it is before the start of a Premier League season the shrewder Fantasy Premier League managers register their teams early to gain a possible advantage.
That is because the speed with which managers register their FPL teams can affect their chances of winning prizes.
If FPL managers have the same points total, the higher rank is awarded to the one who has made the fewer transfers.
And if they have both made the same number of transfers, the managers will share the same rank.
However, when awarding the weekly and monthly prizes, if managers are level on rank, the one who was first to register their team is deemed the winner.
The same rule applies for deciding the overall winner in case of a tie.
Fantasy Premier League is a game of the finest margins, so get your team in early to avoid ultimate disappointment.
