INTRO TO FANTASY HANDBALL
Like any other fantasy sport, daily fantasy handball lets the users be the leader of their respective handball team and to compete daily with other managers. The fate of a team and its performance depends mostly on the owner as he is the sole responsible for selecting the team. There are not many complications in daily fantasy handball and one could easily understand how to play it and win money prizes. It starts with the simplest registration and then by building every time a strong team that can win its opponents. Of course, minimum knowledge of handball’s players and teams is recommended, as it gives an idea of how a team needs to be structured and what are the main things to remember before selecting a player. Even if you don’t, we got you covered.
FANTASY HANDBALL SELECTION
One must keep in mind that selecting high valued players is important but selecting less known players that have huge potential to make a difference during a match is fundamental! It is advised to select the players who not only score goals or defend well but also those who can come in handy during injury time and who get less suspensions. One needs to take a serious look over the handball league fixtures and the dates when they are played. If a top player has easy fixtures lined up during the initial phase of season, then it is advisable to choose him if he can bag some important points and win for your fantasy handball team in the beginning. It is also recommended to select players from different teams, so a single team’s bad day will not affect your fantasy handball players’ performances.
HOW DO I SCORE POINTS IN FANTASY HANDBALL?
All fantasy handball teams will have a goalkeeper, 2 backs, 2 wingers, 1 playmaker and 1 pivot. It is not ideal to have a common scoring standard for all players given that the style of play is completely different. But all players in general do carry equal points for certain categories like win/loss, yellow card, red card, exclusion and 2 minutes suspension. All the cards and expulsion categories will earn negative points for the team on behalf of the player. A goalkeeper can be very handy when it comes to earning points. If the goalkeeper can keep well and restrict the goals conceded to less than 20 then it can be termed as a good performance. A back can have points scored for every goal and their defense will also come into play. But for playmakers, pivots and wingers, only goal scoring can earn them points with possible exception of assists. The points that can be earned via assists are negligible and it is necessary to keep these scoring standards in mind while selecting the players and choose players who are the best fit for the respective position.
