By Preston Bradsher

The NWSL fall series kicked off last Saturday with an exciting battle between the Washington Spirit and Sky Blue FC, with the revamped New Jersey squad taking away a 2-1 win in the final minutes of extra time. This weekend the fall series gets into full swing with two days of matches featuring teams from all three of the three-team pods playing in different parts of the country. The matches will be available on Twitch, CBS, and CBS Sports, and She Plays has a full slate of fantasy games ready to help you get into the action from home . 

If you played our fantasy games during the Challenge Cup, a lot of these will look familiar to you. All the games are now weekly rather than season-long, so you’ll have the opportunity to update your choices throughout the fall series. We’ll be here every week to give you She Plays’ best tips so you can hit maximum point-scoring potential in each round of games, so be sure to check in regularly. For now, here’s a quick rundown of She Plays’ fantasy games for the NWSL fall series.

You’ll make picks for the end results of each match and also try to guess the final score. Come put your skills to the test and see if you can pull off the ever-elusive perfect Pick ‘Em round!

Team Game: Assign the Line

This team-centric game tests your ability to keep your finger on the pulse of the league as a whole.

You’ll score points when your chosen teams outperform the rest, so start checking out the matchups now to get ahead of the game!

Roster Game: Starting XI

Rounding out our fantasy lineup for the NWSL fall series is another classic in the style of fantasy football. Each week, you’ll choose a full roster of players for your team: three forwards, four midfielders, three defenders, and one goalkeeper. Your picks will then score you points based on how they perform in their real-life matches. With a chance to re-pick your team every week, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to perfect your fantasy strategy as you get a handle on this NWSL fall series. 

So now you’re ready to go! Start making your picks for this weekend’s games and remember to check back here each week for fantasy tips. May the best player win!
