The Scout: Ten lessons Official Fantasy Bundesliga from the first ten Matchdays

Dear Official Fantasy Bundesliga fans, you find me in the midst of the November blues. Outside, it’s cold, wet and almost constantly dark plus – worst of all – the Bundesliga has taken leave for the international break. There is to be no tinkering with my Official Fantasy Bundesliga team, and no cheering the glorious domestic action in front of the screen.

1) Challenges won

It's never to late to play the Official Fantasy Bundesliga - sign up to the Autumn League now!

For the wise old sages among you, this may not seem like news, however, challenges won have become one of the main sources of points in Official Fantasy Bundesliga. In order to convert your team into an Autumn sensation, pick up those combative players!

2) Broad selection

A good fantasy squad should not only contain eleven star names, but needs to have depth in order to provide you with flexibility of choice on Matchday.

6) Make those player changes

Take a look at the order in which the teams containing your players will play over a given weekend. Try to have all of your players involved as the games start to roll in and later replace those you need to ahead of Saturday evening and Sunday’s action.

7) Keeper boost

You can even apply the previous recommendation to your goalkeepers. Using two keepers involved in separate kick-off times gives you double the chance of gaining a clean sheet, and the five points that feat brings!

8) Transfers

Use the three transfers you have between Matchdays resolutely. There are always areas to improve, even in my team!
