edit; seems to be a bit pricier that what I remember - altho don't think any of the reasonable central hotels we looked at were any cheaper

There's a couple options.

1) there is season long fantasy - you pick a team get a transfer ever week and two wild cards per year. You're largely locked into the team you initially pick though

2) there is also daily fantasy which you use a salary to draft players just for that game slate. You can then enter said lineup into contests for dollars. There's a decent amount of money in daily fantasy and you can play for small stakes entering contests for as little as 1$ or high stakes playing head to head matches for 5k.

For daily fantasy there's a bunch of different sites that you can play on and all have different scoring systems. I have some basic info on soccerdfs.com if you are interested and plan on updating it a bit when I have some free time this summer.

Re: English Football 2015/16

what PBAL doesn't realise is that last season was simply stage one of my elaborate plot to hustle the pants off him.

Anyways, I'm a known spreadsheet bore so here's a link to a sheet that will track performance vs handicap throughout the season.

Pbal's move is either completely insane or brilliant. Either way, it's really awesome

You linked the wrong spreadsheet. 12X looking good though!

Nice PBAL, nice

Re: English Football 2015/16

I'd favour LO in that bet. Looking at the pinny lines, Utd u77.5 Ars o76.5 and Eve o53.5 are what jump out at me. Utd in particular looks a great bet

Re: English Football 2015/16

?? Obv I think PBAL is correct to swerve Utd but I also think the line on Everton is too low which is what LO has based his handicaps against the rest of the field on.
