A lifelong Birmingham City fan, Tom relocated to Germany for five years after graduating from university, where his interest in the Bundesliga developed. He began writing about and betting on German football for FST in 2016. He's also an avid fantasy football player and closely follows the Premier League and European competitions.
Fantasy Premier League (FPL) returns on Friday as Manchester United host Leicester City to kick off the new season – and that fixture can’t come quickly enough! Millions of FPL managers continue to ritualistically make changes to their teams daily, and for good reason. Setting up a squad of 15 players with just £100m is much easier said than done, especially when Mo Salah will set you back £13.0m!
With that in mind, Free Super Tips got down to looking at a number of potential Fantasy Premier League squad templates for those that need a helping hand. From a team filled with our FPL expert’s recommendations to those packed with set-piece specialists, we’ve covered a whole host of different options worth looking into.
Whether you are looking for the best picks from the Premier League’s Big Six, trying to construct a squad with plenty of differentials, or punting on a few unkown summer signings, FST has a squad for you (however inadvisable they may be). Remember to take these templates with a pinch of salt!
