Draft versus Budget
Two of the most well-known ways to build your fantasy team.
You select players for your team within a pre-defined budget, or salary cap. Each player gets a fictional value, where the top performers are valued the highest. The budget and values are often accompanied by constraints such as a fixed number of players per position and a maximum of players from the same team.
Adding a transfer market to your game can make things very interesting during the season. A player can increase in value based on supply and demand. This adds an extra strategy element and rewards your insights.
