Week 2 Preview – UCL Fantasy R16 2nd Leg

This article is part of the series: UCL Fantasy MD8: Tips, Best Picks & Captain

Captaincy thresholds

  • Changing the captain: Unless your captain scored more or equal to 7 points, we think you should switch the captaincy (if you have a captaincy option for each of the remaining 2 days). Read more: UCL Fantasy Captaincy Thresholds
  • So if you are on Haaland or Bellingham captain, we would change the captaincy (to Saka, then Hummels)
  • If you are on Mbappe, Kane captain – keep the armband on them
  • After this day (Day 3), the captaincy threshold value decreases to 6 points


Substitution threshold

  • As usual, our substitution threshold is 4 points, so if you have players like Zaire Emery, we would not substitute them out
  • Before Day 3, sub in only players that play on Day 3.
  • You will sub in players that play on Day 4 before Day 4 deadline (in case some of your Day 3 players score minus, 0 or 1 point)

Wait with your substitutions until you see lineups one hour before the substitution deadline.
