5 Rotation Sequences You Must Know About (Part I)

They say that variety is the spice of life.  It certainly is in fantasy football.  Knowing of good rotation sequences is essential so that you can alternate your goalkeepers and defenders accordingly.

You should aim to field your defensive players in as many home fixtures as possible as probability & stats indicate that teams will concede less at home than away - thus the less games on the road the better.

Moreover, it's important to find pairings who are due to play newly promoted teams or opposition that doesn't tend to fare well on their travels.  Ideally, you don't want two elite teams as part of your defensive pairings or else you will risk benching a classy defender.

Having said all of that, form is key and it will always override reputations, as was evident last year.  My hand picked combinations are not the be all or end all.  They are only meant to serve as a guide for potential "auto-pilot" sequences.
