    Are there any fantasy-oriented magazines for the English Premier League?

    In America, bookshelves are stocked with fantasy magazines for the major sports as their seasons approach, but I don't think I've seen any EPL fantasy magazines to date.

    Do they exist, and can they be ordered online?

    I'm admittedly new to soccer as a fantasy sport, and whereas I've played in leagues for the "major four" sports for years, it might be nice to have a magazine to refer to for fantasy EPL player ratings and ranks.

    There are no fantasy magazines as far as I know. For latest trades and other info, I recommend the following...

    Checkin the EPL official site for headline news is always good

    ESPN soccer is good for stats and player history. Beware, a good year in the Coca Cola Championship (1 level down) does not mean a good year in the Premier League. I had 3 Stoke City players on my squad after the draft last year and their salary / values dropped faster than I could take a 4 point additional transfer deduct.

    Also, make sure you look at the scoring rules. How much a goal is worth per position, clean sheet and then there is the bonus points. In each match there are three buonus points given out. One person gets 3, another 2 and another 1. Some players become the darlings and you wonder why Zamora has over 90 points for 2 goals and 6 assists.

    Do a google search on ACTIM INDIX. It's a player rating system that is used for 4 leagues in Great Britain. It doesn't always correlate to FPL scoring, especially defensive midfielders, but it gives you some comparison of players real form and value by position.
