Hi, folks. It’s that time again — we’re going to once again renew the Cartilage Free Captain fantasy Premier League over at fantasy.premierleague.com, just in time for both the end of the transfer window and the start of the Premier League season.
You know how it works by now, but in case you don’t here’s a primer: you have a certain amount of money with which you “buy” Premier League players, and then you choose a team each week. Points accrue. You rocket up the standings, followed by ????, and PROFIT.
Except there’s no profit because this isn’t gambling for money. But you still get to kick my ass because I invariably join every year and then forget I have a team by week 8.
This is a pool league, meaning there’s no head-to-head. If you want one of those leagues, keep an eye on the fanposts, as I believe there are a bunch of readers who have set one up in past years.
Just a protip: I royally suck at fantasy football, and I literally hit “autofill” on my team just so I could get to the part where I renew the league. Don’t do that — it sucks. I’ll go back and fix that later and pick really awesome players for my team. Probably. Maybe.
My team name: Doherty Birds.
If you were in last year’s league, you’ve now automatically joined this year’s league, because that’s how it works. However, if you’re new you’re more than welcome to join us. To join, head over to fantasy.premierleague.com, make an account (or log in) and join the Carty Free league with invite code hu9ks4
