The entire concept of Fantasy Teams hinges upon excitement and earning. Within very little time, the world of fantasy-based sports has grown multifold and has witnessed great interest. Contrary to the claims of it being gambling and/or betting, fantasy sports games have been held to be a game of skill. A carefully and properly planned team can earn the participants money but they must understand the basic requirements for it.
A well-structured and balanced fantasy team is the key to success and it is advisable to keep a healthy mix of players from all the categories such as batsmen, wicketkeepers, all-rounders, and bowlers. Understand that the fantasy team needs to be a culmination of the best performers, not an assortment of your favorite players from your favorite franchise. Therefore, overloading the team with players of one team will not be suitable.
Also, the IPL Fantasy League permits a maximum of four overseas players. Given that seven of the remaining players have to be Indians, the focus must stay as much on them as the overseas options.
Do not blindly run for glory
Ensure to not be greedy while slotting in high-credit players as too many of those will always leave you in a situation of compromise. Even as including the premium players appears an appealing idea, the limited credits need to be spent wisely to reach the best possible eleven.
Also, including too many high-credit players from one category (Eg. Batsmen or Wicketkeeper) will inevitably result in extra transfers when you need to include high-credit players from other categories (Eg. Bowlers or All-rounder). Therefore, instead of going all-glory, be wise while including players who come at a high price.
All-rounders are gold
The concept of fantasy teams is fairly simple. Choose the players who can earn you the maximum points. To state the obvious, all-rounders contribute with both bat and ball. Some are multidimensional enough and might be able to contribute with agile fielding too. Therefore, focus on the all-rounders always.
Furthermore, if a big-hitting batsman fails on a given day or a premium bowler has an off outing, the chances for them to bring points vanishes. On the other hand, an all-rounder might fail with the bat but compensate with the ball or vice versa.
Keen eye on the fixtures
Specifically for the IPL Fantasy League, keep a keen eye on the fixtures as there are certain durations when a team is highly active, whereas another gets a good gap. It is not sensible to hold the players when a team is not going to be in action in the upcoming days. Instead, be aware and release the players of such a team to open up funds and spots in the side. Similarly, when a busy schedule approaches a team, ensure to hold maximum performers from that side, which will minimize transfers and maximize output for your team.
