Here is the Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy League Tips:

First of all, it is crucial to select a team which has players who will surely play in the game. As they say in cricket, you don’t score any runs in the dressing room. Similarly, a player who is not playing cannot score points for you. In fact, Dream11 has brought a change in its rule by which you can alter your team even after the toss. Thus, you can pick your team according to the playing XI of both sides.

Secondly, it is pivotal to pick the right combination of captain and vice-captain. A captain gets twice the points whereas the deputy of the team will 1.5 times the points. Thus, it is imperative to select the big in-form players as your respective captain and vice-captain.

It is also crucial to get top order batsmen in the team as they are likely to score the major chunk of the score. Furthermore, it is pivotal to check the pitch conditions and select the team accordingly.

In fact, one can take a gamble of selecting a player who has less chance of succeeding in big leagues. Thus, that particular player has less chance of getting selected by other users. Consequently, if that player’s fires at all cylinders then it can be a big bonus.
