Fantasy Football - 1997/1998

Just for a bit of fun, Fantasy Football involves players receiving points for making different contributions in every competitive match, whether it be an appearance, a goal, a clean sheet on an assist. Players can also lose points for things such as being issued red or yellow cards.



View the current Fantasy Football leaderboard, ordered by the total number of points each player has accumulated, or the average number of points they earn per game. You can also use the position dropdown to see exactly how players peform in a particular position.
