FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE

vs

FANTASY FOOTBALL IN DREAM11

 

 

Fantasy Football is new to India but has been a part of the game internationally for a long time. On the other hand, the Fantasy Football landscape in India is in its nascent stage in its own right.

Our aim through this article is to inform you about both the platforms and introducing the quirks of Fantasy Football in India regarding FPL and draw out similarities and differences.

FPL has been the flagbearer of standard and glamour in the world of fantasy football. Celebrities and Footballers have been known to have a special interest in FPL. It was thus not a big deal when Magnus Carlson, The Grand Master himself shows up in the top 10 Managers list. The fact that English Premier League is the most-watched and the most popular football league in the world also helps as it builds on the success of the Premier League and allows you an insight into the Fantasy Football world of stars.

Fantasy Premier League has been the greatest platform to showcase fantasy football prowess. Millions of Fantasy Managers play the FPL every year. This constitutes continuous management of permutation and combination throughout the year in the form of making changes and application of wildcards on the weekly basis.

The Fantasy Football scene in India is a match specified in the individual match level with multiple platforms offering various competitive leagues to participate throughout the length of a particular match and cash prizes at the end of each contest. This has failed to attract many football followers because of the extensive focus of the brands on Cricket and Cricket only.

The tide is changing and the fantasy platforms are now acknowledging the fact that Fantasy Football might be their way forward for expansion with a rabid fan base making this the perfect time for upcoming fantasy players to join this trend and reap benefits

This Article’s main aim is to acclimatize FPL managers with the fantasy football scope in India and to allow the swift understanding and shift from FPL to Fantasy Football in Dream11 or other platforms.

 

ADVANTAGES OF FANTASY FOOTBALL IN INDIA

Match Selection –

  • In the case of FPL, the blanket of a whole game week is put over the managers and they have to choose a team of 11 players from a set of 220 players in the game week whereas, in the case of Dream11, you have the task to choose the best possible 11 from a set of 22 players, concentrating your match analysis and reading capabilities.
  • The selection of Captain and Vice-Captain is based on the performance of all the matches of the week in the case of FPL, but in the case of Dream11, the choice can be made based on the current match and the analysis of the match in the spotlight
  • It has to be noted that Dream11 allows you to apply your expertise in Fantasy Football and try your hand in multiple leagues across various competitions, something, that FPL can never provide. This also broadens the scope of winning big in comparatively unknown leagues and allows for a better expression of Fantasy Football Knowledge.
  • Dream11 provides you with the autonomy to choose ant match that you might feel comfortable about and allows you to exploit and test your knowledge to the fullest.

Deadlines

  • The FPL deadline is set at 90 mins before the first game of the game week which allows less flexibility in knowing the team news and sets the managers up for a surprise every time a player gets rested. When it comes to Dream11 or other fantasy sports platforms in India the deadline is the Kick-off of the match allowing for room to adjust the strategy and set the fantasy team up accordingly
  • The Deadlines allow for a better scope for gathering info about the match and are backed by Fantasy Arena with detailed Lineup analysis.

Rewards

  • Part of what makes FPL the center of attraction is the fact that the winners are coveted with benefits and a lifetime title of being a Fantasy Premier League winner but it has its downsides. The fact is that sometimes, one year of hard work and constant efforts come to futile ends as 99% of the managers are left with nothing tangible. Dream11 on the other side provides instant gratification almost if not equal to the level of FPL, but it does come with added tangible benefits as in general 53% of the fantasy teams end to be on the winning side and generate profit.
  • If you are a good Fantasy Football Manager in Dream11 and rank 1 in the grand league, you stand to win at least Rs 65-70K from one match alone. This is something that sets the FPL aside and provides the Fantasy Football players with something tangible and real to keep motivating them.

Point Distribution

  • This section is for hardcore football fans. FPL has been ignorant and reluctant to make changes to the points system in a time when Football statistics has taken a huge stride forward with terrific recording and availability of Data. FPL’s old-school point system leaves with a lot of wanting and is a disservice to managers who are capable to go beyond the nominal point systems and challenge the Mighty with stats.
  • Dream11 has adapted to the advanced point distribution system which has been a great hit and has involved a multitude of stats to make the analysis more interesting and engaging to play.
  • Tackles, Key Passes, Interceptions, Big Chances created, Shots on Target, and many more individual stats make the game of Dream11 richer and the experience of the win sweeter.

MY VIEWS

  • The above-mentioned factors played a big role in my decision to shift from FPL and start playing Fantasy Football in Dream11 and other platforms.
  • It has been more than 5 years since me playing the sport and it has never been dull.
  • I have been rewarded over the years for my dedication to stats and analysis of the game and it goes to show that this is possible and very much achievable.
