This Saturday we have a £250 freeroll exclusively for Fanteam Customers. The Star Pick contest will cover all five of the Premier League Saturday afternoon (3pm UK time) kick-offs.
In Star Pick, you need to pick one player that you think could score the highest amount of points over the contest. Those who choose the player(s) who scored the most points share the prize pool. Could we even see a unique winner take the whole £250 prize pool?
We’ve given everyone the chance to enter three picks in this contest. Giving you a chance to play safe and go rogue should you wish to. We all know that in football anything can happen and not everything goes to form.
Just in the last few weeks we’ve seen forwards such as Marcus Rashford and Erling Haaland top the fantasy scoring but we’ve also seen stalwart defenders James Tarkowski and Ben Mee do the same.
So why not try your hand at the FanTeam Star Pick game freeroll? Whether you’re a seasoned fantasy football player or a newcomer to the game, here is a chance to outsmart your opponents for a chance to turn your free entry into cash.
How does the Star Pick game work?
In Star Pick you need to only pick ONE player that you think could score the highest amount of points over the contest.
If your chosen player gets the highest fantasy score over the Star Pick contest, you will win the prize pool, along with the other managers who chose that player or a player who also got the same top score as your pick.
The key to this game is out-thinking your opponents. The lower owned a player is, the more you stand to win if they score the most points in the Star Pick contest.
So, do you bet on the big-name player and have a better chance of a win, or, do you go against the grain with a more outside pick and gamble for a bigger payday.
What scoring system will you use?
Players will score and accrue points as they would in the standard format of fantasy contests on FanTeam.
A full breakdown of the scoring rules can be found by clicking on the ‘Scoring System’ button inside the Star Pick contest itself.
Will the Star Pick contests have a budget?
There is no budget in Star Pick. You can pick any player from the slate, without restriction.
Players will still be ordered from the highest to the lowest price to show you who is expected to score the most fantasy points, just like in our fantasy contests – but you can pick any player you like.
What if a player doesn’t start?
Safety net is enabled for this contest.
All non-starting players will be replaced at the beginning of their match, if there is a player from the same country, in the same position, with an equal or cheaper price. The closest price will be chosen first.
Can I enter a Star Pick contest more than once?
Yes. This contest has a 3-max entries rule.
Also, a user can bet on the same player multiple times if they so wish. For example, you can enter Harry Kane to be the highest-scoring player 3 times – giving you 3 shares of the prize pool, should he be the highest-scoring player of the Star Pick Quarter Final contest.
What if multiple players tie for 1st place?
If two or more selected players end the contest with exactly the same points, then they will split the prize between all those that chose those players.
Also, note that there will always be a winner in a Star Pick contest. If no one picks the highest point scorer for the contest, then the prize pool will go to the highest-scoring player(s) who has been picked.
How do we calculate the prizes?
The total prize pool will be distributed to the entry or entries that correctly pick the player with the highest score in the Star Pick contest.
For example £250 total prize pool
– 1 user picks the highest points scorer = wins £250
– 10 users pick the highest points scorer = win £25 each
– 100 users pick the highest points scorer = win £2.50 each
Other than that, all general fantasy rules for each respective sport will apply to Star Pick – see our support pages for more information on each respective sport.
