Praise be! Fantasty Premier League is back up and running ahead of football's return and it truly is a magical day.
Even when the recommencement of the Premier League was announced the fate of fantasy football was still open in the air, with many questions about how the remainder of the campaign was going to play out. Some players had made transfers in the period after the league was suspended - would they still stand? Were the gameweeks going to be rejigged? Now all these queries have been answered.
Following the latest game update, the gameweeks have been altered to reflect the new fixture schedule and renamed "Gameweek 30+," "Gameweek 31+," etc. The first gameweek back is a double gameweek for four teams, namely Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Man City and Arsenal.
There are also unlimited transfers between now and the start of the first gameweek back. These will not affect of your wildcard and you will be allowed use your chips in Gameweek 30+ as well, which is big news for those who had held out on using their bench boost until now.
However, while chips are available to use , the FPL website does flag that any Android app users who'd like to use their free hit for Gameweek 30+ will need to do so on the web and not on the app.
The deadline for Gameweek 30+ is 5pm on Wednesday 17 June. With eight gameweeks left, there is still lots of play for across mini-leagues so whoever gets their selection right for Gameweek 30+ is going to have a massive advantage going down the home stretch.
Unfortunately head-to-head leagues have finished, and this includes Fantasy Draft head-to-head private leagues. On the FPL website it says:
With the Premier League returning next Wednesday, 17 June, FPL Draft is now live again with a waiver deadline of 17:00 BST on Tuesday 16 June.
However, while classic leagues are continuing, Head-to-Head leagues ended in Gameweek 38.
We would therefore encourage you to set up new Head-to-Head leagues in Draft for the remaining nine Gameweeks. You can do that here.
That's definitely doable for normal fantasy head-to-head leagues but in terms of draft it may prove tricky unless everyone makes sure to draft the exact same players.
