    The fantasy game we played the last few years I just don't really have time for so and the scoring doesn't really reflect value anyway.

    Would anyone be interested in a prediction contest at the team level.

    Structured like this:

    We assign projected point totals for the season from some legit source.

    Each participant picks 5 teams to outperform and 5 teams to underperform.

    You score points relative to their year end performance.

    Example.

    Arsenal 65 predicted to overperform.
    If they get 70 you get +5. if They get 60 you get -5.

    Palace 45 predicted to underperform. At season end at 40 you get +5, at 50 you get -5.

    Add up your ten scores highest total wins.

    I could put together a simple spreadsheet to track and stick it
    on a google drive updating every few weeks or so.

    If people are interested just like or post so and I'll dig up some legit predictions to work off.

    I thought the EPL fantasy league was perfect the last 2 seasons, and a true indicator of intelligence and soccer knowledge ;).

    I'm in for this pool too.

    Four is enough. But I bet we get 15.
