UPDATE: Y! has hit reboot and the game now has the proper valuations. You'll have to start over building a team, but at least you'll be doing it for real this time.
I'll make this quick since there is quite possibly a time-sensitivity to this information. The new season of Yahoo! Fantasy Premier League Football has been opened up. We look forward to everyone joining in on both the game and all of our fun over here at the blog.
The most important thing for you all to know is that the prices are a bit crazy right now. Here are the most obvious bargains if you don't want to search yourself...
1.00 - Friedel, Hart, Given, van der Sar, Defoe, Dempsey, AJ, and others
3.93 - JT, Gerrard
5.35 - Vidic, Verm, Bale
Under 10 - Elk (7 and change), Lamps (8 and change), RvP (8 and change)
Those are just some of the names out there available to you at incredibly cheap prices. I have written to the guys who run the game at Yahoo because this is potentially setting things up for a very ugly year of fantasy football if some people get in on the low prices and others don't. I don't know what they'll do about it but my first action was to build the team I wanted with the crazy prices. You know, just in case.
Plenty of season preview materials to come between now and the start of the season.
Cheers - Neal
