Week 1 of our flagship GAA fantasy competition is ready to go. Click here to enter.
Entry fee: €10
First place: 80% of prize money
Second place: 20% of prize money
Pick a total of 7 players from any* of the Division 1 NFL players for the first round of fixtures:
- 2 defenders
- 1 midfielder
- 4 forwards
There is a fairly light touch salary cap this round, because the salaries are a bit arbitrary. Really it’s only there to stop you filling your team with 4 established Dublin forwards and hoping they run riot.
20 points per appearance
-1 point for every point conceded
-2 points for every goal conceded
Defenders get 20 points for being on the pitch for any portion of the game. If they play at all, then they also lose points for every score their team concedes, irrespective of whether they were on the pitch for that score or not.
(Rationale: data sources just aren’t reliable enough to be more exact).
All players (including defenders):
-5 points for every point scored from a dead ball
-10 points for every point scored from play
-20 points for every goal scored (from play or from a dead ball).
* I seem to have forgotten to include Roscommon players. Apologies for any offence caused.
There may also be players missing from some panels. Let me know who has been left out so I can add them for subsequent weeks. They won’t be added to this week, as that’s unfair on early pickers (though you can edit your team right up to 6pm Irish time on Saturday).
