FanTeam’s German €50K Monster | €10k 1st Place | Daily Fantasy Football
Football is returning to our screens and our life!
The first big European league returns this weekend, with Germany’s top-tier domestic football season resuming behind closed doors on Saturday 16th May.
To celebrate this return, we’ve created a €50,000 German League fantasy football contest, with a 1st place prize of €10,000 – guaranteed.
The contest kicks off with 5 fixtures on Saturday at 15:30 CET and ends with Union Berlin vs. Bayern Munich on Sunday, featuring a total of 8 games.
How to Enter
To enter this contest, head over to fanteam.com.
Once logged in to your account, you’ll see this Saturday’s German €50K Monster contest towards the top of the lobby – click the entry button to begin selecting your team.
The format is 11-a-side, with no subs and you can pick a maximum of 3 players from any one team.
Oh – and please remember to select a captain as he will earn you DOUBLE points.
For those of you that are new to FanTeam, you can find a full breakdown of how the scoring system works by clicking on the “Scoring” button above the pitch.
Your team must have at least 1 x Goalkeeper, 3 x Defenders, 2 x Midfielders and 1 x Forward.
Build a Team
To assist with your selection, each player is given a coloured icon to the left of their name, indicating his chances of featuring.
Green means the player is expected to start, while red indicates the player is set to miss out and a half green/half yellow icon means it’s 50-50.
Be sure to also keep an eye on the latest team news, as we move closer to the deadline, to give yourself the best chance of fielding an XI.

Leipzig have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games, making their defenders worthy of consideration.
Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, have kept out their opponents in 3 of their last 4 outings; earning Pavard and Hummels respective averages of 5.3 and 4.8 points per game, over that spell.

So, now we move onto the midfielders, where there is an array of talent, such as Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
At $13.3m, the young Englishman has been given the most expensive price tag amongst midfielders, after recording a goal or assist in each of the last 6 Gameweeks.
He’s amassed 3 goals and 4 assists over that spell, to average 7.7 points per game.
(Show image of 3 forwards filled in on pitch, Haaland, Lewandowski and Werner)
And now we come to the business end of your lineup – the forwards.
These are typically the most expensive players in the game and tend to eat up your budget.
Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Leipzig’s Timo Werner are sure to be amongst the highest owned forwards, but come at a steep price.
The break has allowed the league’s top scorer, Robert Lewandowski, to recover from a leg injury ahead of the meeting with Union Berlin on Sunday.
He’s bagged 4 goals across his last 4 outings, to average 7.8 points per game.
Once you’re happy with your 11-man lineup, it’s time to decide on a captain.
You can do this by clicking on your chosen player and selecting “set as captain” or you can use the drop-down menu above the pitch.
And remember – this player earns you double points, so be sure to choose a vice-captain incase your captain doesn’t play.
