Intro to Fantasy Sports World
For millions and millions of people around the world, rugby is part of their daily routine when the season starts. But sometimes, it is more than just watching, analyzing and supporting your team. Some people want to live the life that the managers do and this is where fantasy rugby pitches in. Fantasy Rugby provides the opportunity to all those people who wish to create their own team and manage it. This is not over yet and it gets even better as most of the fantasy rugby contests gives lavish prizes in different forms and this is a real benefit. So, get ready to gear in and learn more about fantasy rugby and especially daily fantasy rugby.
Daily Fantasy Rugby vs Seasonal Fantasy Rugby
Not all of us will be interested in entering a competition that lasts season long for a wide range and variety of reasons. To be real, we have a life too. For all of those similar kind of people, daily fantasy rugby provides much better opportunities and options to compete in the dream sport that they always wanted to. On the other hand, seasonal fantasy rugby runs the entire season and if one has to win something then lots of concentration and effort needs to be put throughout the season which not all of us are willing to.
What is Daily Fantasy Rugby?
Daily fantasy rugby is played over one single day only and it is a place where you can exploit your talent. There will be no commitment given other than the day that you are competing. So, one can play as little as possible or as often. How good is the fact that we enable our members to play whenever they want to? There will be no difference in the way points are awarded and all the rules that are applied concerning the Seasonal Fantasy rugby scoring standards are applicable to daily fantasy rugby as well. The only major difference is the time it takes to figure out the winner of the competition. For example, you can put in your team for the Challenge Cup final and the next day or after few days, you can enter a different competition where different teams contest again. And there are different prizes to be won on different days in daily fantasy rugby depending on the size of the contest that one competes in. Let’s be honest, the prizes for seasonal fantasy rugby might be more lucrative than the daily fantasy ones but when you look at a whole, you get more from daily fantasy rugby than seasonal fantasy rugby, given that not all of us will stay as alarmed and conscious of the fantasy all season long. For all the above listed reasons, daily fantasy rugby is more interesting and beneficial in comparison to seasonal fantasy rugby.
Scoring Rules are important
The scoring rules and standards are important in the daily fantasy rugby world. In most of the leagues, lineouts gets you some points (by virtue of hooker throws or jumper receives) but in some of them such lineouts do not earn any points. Work rate is the key and it is important to select more players of such caliber in your team because those are the players who can get you more points and help you win the daily fantasy rugby contest. Also, try assists and line breaks can get you more points and hence it is important to be a fantasy rugby scout and select players who play in such positions, rather than selecting center halves who do not, in general, go forth and attack.
Building your fantasy team
This happens to be the most important step in fantasy rugby and most critical in daily fantasy rugby. It is very important to check the stats of the players before fielding them in your team. In our Blog you will find all the fantasy rugby news necessary to master our competitions. Try to avoid centers even though they are the most critical asset to any rugby team in real game. Centers do not get you more points and hence it is better to go a decent center that can start in the first team on the day you’re contesting. It is necessary to select players who can play in more than one position and this can be known if one checks the stats before they start picking the team. In general, players who can play in different positions cover a lot of yards and are mostly attack minded which creates more opportunities for the team and more points for your daily fantasy rugby team. One more thumb rule is to pick players who play in outside back position from most successful or at least attack minded teams. They get you the most number of points at the end of the day.
It is all but Game Theory
Daily fantasy rugby is nothing but playing with numbers and probabilities given that you’re well accustomed with the rules of the contest. Lots of managers go for all the marquee players but it takes not much time to realize that one cannot form a team that way. There are a lot of combinations involved based on the players’ history record in daily fantasy rugby and the team the players play for. So, it is quite important to check the stats before starting online. Remember it is all but fun with some interesting prizes and hence there is no harm in doing a little homework to get yourself a victory.
