One of the biggest questions in fantasy sports is: Why is David Pattinson (FPTS) so good? The Victoria leg-spinner can flat-brush the ball forward and over the infield; he can bend the ball in different ways (as he demonstrates in the clip below) and can place the ball where he wants it to go.
The 34-year-old Australian has been a successful pitcher in both the English and Australian cricket leagues for years. He also spent time playing in the Big League in New York City. In 2018, he decided to put his skills to use in fantasy cricket, and he hasn’t looked back since.
In this article, we’ll discuss the ins and outs of why FPTS is so good, and how players can implement his strategies into their own games.
If you’re new to fantasy cricket, the first thing you’ll need to do is join a cricket forum or website and learn the rules and regulations. You’ll also need to familiarise yourself with the fantasy cricket ecosystem, which is heavily dependent on the game’s official tool, fpts.com.au. This site provides scores, results, and all the necessary information needed to get started in the game. The good thing is that you can practice playing against the computer, which means you’ll get more experience and won’t feel as intimidated by the game as you would if you were playing against real people.
Once you’re able to get the hang of playing fantasy cricket, the next step is to pick your players. As mentioned above, FPTS uses a points scoring system, so you’ll need to have a look at the current fantasy cricket rankings to find the best available players for your draft. Drafting a team of proven performers in cricket is a great way to go, as you can rest assured that they’ll perform consistently each and every game. The most important point to make here is that you shouldn’t draft a player just because he’s on your favorite team or plays in your favorite sport. Instead, you should look for the best possible lineup that suits your needs.
Theory Of Constructing A Team
You’ll notice that much of what you need to know about playing fantasy cricket is based on theory rather than on experience. For instance, as a beginner, you’ll need to establish what makes up for a good game and how you can put theory into practice. The best place to do this is by watching videos of famous cricket players explaining the theory behind their particular playing styles. This way, you’ll be able to understand the reasons why they are able to perform at such a high level. You’ll see their skills, and you’ll understand how to replicate them. The following clip from the Inside Cricket website is a great example of this:
Establishing a theory of what makes for a good game is a great way to go about taking your fantasy cricket to the next level. By understanding the components that make up a successful game, you’ll be able to streamline your play and prevent unnecessary losses. This is especially important if you’re playing against experienced opponents, as they are likely to game-plan and sabotage your efforts to win.
Using Theoretical Knowledge To Your Advantage
Once you’ve put in the time to learn the basics of playing fantasy cricket, the next step is to take advantage of your theoretical knowledge. This is where you’ll put all that new-found skill you’ve gained into practice. The best way to do this is by using stats, which can be found on the aforementioned fpts.com.au. Having stats is great, as it gives you a clear picture of how each player is performing at the moment and what he’s capable of. You can use this information to your advantage by making the right pick for your team in the upcoming fantasy cricket draft.
What you need to keep in mind is that stats can be fickle things. Just because a player has a lot of x-factors doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll perform well in actual games. Established cricketers (like David Pattinson) are likely to have fewer issues with consistency, but young players (like Alex Hales) are more likely to fluctuate. This is why it’s important not to get too attached to stats and instead use them as a tool to help you make the right decision. Keep in mind that players’ stats can and will change as the seasons change, as the ball bounces differently, as some players age, and so on. Thus, using stats to gauge a player’s true potential is rather difficult, as there are a lot of variables that can change the outcome of any given statistic.
The Special Talents Of David Pattinson
David Pattinson is a rare talent when it comes to cricket. Not only does he possess an extraordinary talent for spinning the ball, but he’s also an accomplished hitter. This skill set gives him an excellent advantage when playing against an unsuspecting opponent who has never faced him before. As he says in the clip below:
It’s hard to put into words just how useful this aspect of David Pattinson’s game is. There aren’t many legitimate hitters out there, and when you couple this with his uncanny knack for making the ball do whatever he wants, it’s safe to say that this is one amazing talent roster. When it comes to creating an all-round game, David Pattinson is the guy you want to pick. He’s a wonderful option for anyone who values versatility over having a standout talent in one particular area.
The Mental Advantage
While it’s important to have a solid understanding of the physical elements that make up a good game, it’s also essential to have the mental capacity to go with it. This is where you come in. You’re the guy who has to keep the lines of communication open, and make sure everyone’s thinking straight. The best way to do this is by using mental tricks, which is why David Pattinson is so good at his craft. In the clip below, we’re treated to an example of David Pattinson’s brilliant mind at work:
You’ll notice that David Pattinson focuses a lot on the mental aspect of the game. This is important, as it shows that he’s keen to help and doesn’t mind sharing his knowledge. He’s not afraid to teach others, as he did in the above clip, and he’s always willing to put in the time to help his teammates figure out the right course of action, even if it means deviating from the “standard” way of doing things.
The bottom line is that David Pattinson is a rare talent when it comes to cricket. Not only is he an extraordinarily skilled player, but he’s also an accomplished teacher. His willingness to share his knowledge and experience with other players makes him an invaluable asset to any fantasy team. He’s the total package for whatever you’re looking for in a fantasy sports performer.
