Fantasy FIFA: Week 1


1. You MUST submit your picks by 6PM UK time. No exceptions.

2. Include the player, how many, and sell time when making selections.

3. You cannot go over the weekly budget. If you do, your picks will not be valid.

4. You may only submit selections once; to enforce this, include your Xbox/PS/PC username in the comment OR message me on Twitter if you don’t want others to know your information.

5. For this week, we will not have a prize as I am unsure of the fairness of the system. However, if all goes smoothly, expect a $10 gift card for FIFA points to the winner in the coming weeks.

6. All player prices are based on Xbox.

7. Sell times are for a general time frame rather than a specific hour. This prevents participants from buying up/listing up the market and rig the competition.

OTW Bernadeschi – 45 000 – Sell: Monday before ITA-ALB game, or Wed before TOTW. Reason: Shaarawy and Candreva are out with minor injuries and Albania should be an easy game for ITA. Sell either on hype or if he actually has a good game. Pulisic 850 (x20 = 17 000) – Sell: Wed before TOTW. Reason: An assist and a goal in a good game for the US. One of the rare US players in europe. Look to sell on wed for up double price. Robert Lewandowski – 290 000 – Same time same reason, the most lock for TOTW. OTW Sigurdsson – 49 000 – Sell – Wed before TOTW, or Next Wed before TOTW. Reason: Sigurdsson is a key figure in Iceland’s and Evertons games, and he has 2 promising fixtures coming up. Sell on hype. Thiago / Isco – 60 000, Sell: Wed before TOTW, Reason: I’m undecided between which one i’d finally pick, If you can, watch the Spain-Israel game and buy during the game. Either way, Thiago is a safe long-term investment too, he is sure to be getting IF’s with bayern this year. Now that I’d technically sell most my players by wednesday,… Read more »


Alright, will get it right next week then!


If I can correct my picks they are as follows:
1 Lewandowski – 290 – Sell Friday for WL
1 OTW James – Sell sat AFTER match
1 Verthongen – Sell fri for WL



I’ve bought:
1 James – 170k
2 Bernadeschi’s – 1 46k 1 44.5k
1 Meunier – 50k
1 Rui Patricio – 16,750k
2 Vertonghen’s – 22k and 21.5
13 Otamendi’s – All 2.6k and under
15 Pulisic’s – All 800

Currently have 55k, anything else I should invest in? Or any sniping methods?



1 James – 170k – Sell BEFORE match
1 Meunier – 50k – Sell Friday
1 Patricio – 16,750 – Sell Friday
2 Vertonghen – 42k – Sell before POTM
13 Otamendi – 32.5k – Sell before POTM

Is this correct?

Xbox: Its Kagawa


1 Lewandowski – Sell Friday
60 Otamendi – Sell Friday AFTER POTM


Damn. I totally forgot about this….. Will be looking forward to it next week.


Maybe next week 🙁
