It could be a tough period for those addicted to fantasy football in the Premier League with the World Cup taking center stage from Qatar.
Fear not though, there is an official world Cup A fantasy game for fans to take part in and add a new dimension to the World Cup experience this winter. There is an opportunity to choose and use players that you would not normally see.
The key is to pick players who you think will perform well, but who will also have tournament success and play more matches. You have $100 million to distribute to 15 players. Here are 10 attackers 90 minutes I think it might be worth the bet.
Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez has had a very mixed time since arriving in England, but he should see plenty of minutes in the World Cup Qatar and Uruguay are the opponents who are eliminated at least in the group stages.
His chaotic style of play may be what is needed in an international tournament unlike any before.
This is more than just a rogue shout and builds on Ghana’s potential to beat the odds and qualify from the group. If they do, Athletic forward Inaki Williams will be at heart.
Its incredible speed and willingness may surprise some teams and it is among the cheaper options that may be worth a try.
With the ridiculous wealth of attacking talent that Portugal possesses, it can be easy to forget Rafael Leao. The AC Milan player will either want to show his club why he should have a new deal on his terms, or why other clubs are trying to buy him.
He could be a smart choice because he has a point to prove and has been in great form this season in Serie A.
It’s not really guaranteed that Ansu Fati will start in Spain, but that could be why he’s such a good call. The Barcelona striker is explosive, direct, and an option for anyone who wants someone different.
When Spain inevitably go 0-0 down with the teams in the group stage, Fati will be thrown around and can make some vital contributions. For that price, it could be worth a shot.
It’s an expensive shout, but it’s the same price as Neymar. Fans are more likely to choose the PSG star which means any points you get with Vinicius Jr will be points not many others get.
The Real Madrid star is shining and could be one of the big stars of this tournament if Brazil lives up to its promise.
Serbs are one of the names mentioned in the dark horse category and for good reason. They have a group of very talented players, perhaps none more so than Juventus player Dusan Vlahović.
He’s a bit cheaper than the elite strikers, but there’s a good chance he’ll outperform a lot of them if Serbia gets things right.
The fact that Joao Felix has had such a rough time at Atlético Madrid recently could be what makes him such a good choice.
The young Portugal star is undoubtedly talented and could see this World Cup as the perfect testing phase to move away from Diego Simeone. Felix may be the one who significantly beats his price tag.
Clear scream, yes. But this could be some kind of situation for Erling Haaland in the FPL. Everyone picked him and he scores a lot of goals, you simply have to pick him so you don’t get left behind.
Messi is now in incredible shape for club and country, and his Argentine team is one of the main favorites to win the tournament.
The most expensive player in the game. Bet on the entire farm, keep going. If France wins the title, Mbappe will have scored a lot of goals and racked up an unholy number of points.
If France has one of its own collegiate meltdowns, it may be that they are left having wasted the group stage on an expensive superstar. It’s Mbappe though, it should be worth it, truly?
This is a thoughtful trend. Lautaro Martinez has had some impressive results for Inter and is expected to start for Argentina as he is one of coach Lionel Scaloni’s favorites.
It’s a cheaper, must-have starting option for a team of candidates to go all the way. Lautaro could have been a very smart move.
