Premier League Fantasy Football: Christmas Deadlines

4th Dec 2018

Confirmed: Christmas is coming.

You know full well that it is. You've seen the Coca Cola advert at least twice and you've probably made a pretty big dent in your shopping list.

There are plenty of jobs to do, social events to attend and food to be eaten over the holidays, which means normality can pass you by.

But don't expect your boys to last the course in the title race if you let Fantasy Football slip off your radar.

The games will be coming thick and fast, with deadlines for substitutions scheduled in for unusual times.

AskFans has put together a simple guide to help you keep on top of your managerial duties during the festive period.

Daily Football Tips

Gameweek 18 - Friday 21 Dec 19:00

You might be enjoying a few work drinks or partaking in an office party - but make sure you make your changes before heading out.

Wolves and Liverpool get the first round of festive fixtures underway on Friday night, with nine games taking place on the Saturday.

Gameweek 19 - Wednesday 26 Dec 11:30

Everyone except Southampton and West Ham are in action on Boxing Day.

But beware, there is an early game as Fulham host Wolves at lunch time, so pull yourself out of your inevitable food coma before then.

Gameweek 20 - Saturday 29 Dec 14:00

By now you will have completely lost track of days as the hours become a blur of leftover Turkey and copious amounts of chocolate.

There is no early kick-off here so you have a bit of breathing space to get yourself sorted out before the deadline.

Gameweek 21 - Tuesday 1 Jan 11:30

Note: second wildcards of the season become available this week.

If you're planning to have a heavy one on New Year's Eve, it would be wise to make your subs prior to your night out.

Why? Well, there's an early deadline as Everton and Leicester kick-off the first of three New Year's Day fixtures at lunch time.

Gameweek 22 - Saturday 12 Jan 11:30

The first round of the FA Cup takes place on the first weekend of January, which means you have 11 days to play with before Gameweek 22.

Things will then get back to normal and, with a bit of luck, you'll still be in the title hunt.
