This year, there's £25,000 up for grabs, including £10,000 for the overall winner and £5,000 for the manager who selects the best starting XI.  

Getting off to a strong start is critical in any fantasy football game and Telegraph Fantasy Football European Championships is no different. Tinkering with formations, studying all of the fixtures and operating within the £50m budget isn't as easy as it looks and many managers end up getting it horribly wrong.

If you're struggling to know where to start, don't panic, you can see who the most selected players are so far to give you an idea of who your competitors think might perform well this summer.

Antoine Griezmann (£5.7m)

France's Antoine Griezmann is the most selected player so far in Telegraph Fantasy Football European Championships, spearheading more than 45% of line-ups. Atletico's young striker has had a phenomenal season for Los Colchoneros and could even pick up a Champions League winners medal this weekend too.

Priced at just £5.7m he's a cheaper alternative to other European heavyweights such as Cristiano Ronaldo (£7.0m), Thomas Muller (£6.5m) and Robert Lewandowski (£6.0m). What's more, France are the current favourites with Coral to take home the trophy and therefore you'd expect Griezmann to end up playing more minutes than others in his position.

Coral latest odds: Griezmann to win the Golden Boot - 9/1

Thomas Muller (£6.5m)

Germany's Thomas Muller is the second most selected player so far and it's easy to see why. Bayern Munich's striker has a fantastic record at international tournaments, scoring five times at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He also racked up three key contributions as the Germans claimed their fourth world title. 

The 26 year-old has had another prolific domestic season, scoring 36 goals in all competitions including eight in the Champions League. Can he keep up the momentum going into Euro 2016?

Hugo Lloris (£3.8m)

Captain of both his club and country, Hugo Lloris has been picked in 32.8% of teams and will lead out the hosts for the opening game on June 10.

He chalked up 129 TFF points while playing for Tottenham in the Premier League - keeping 13 full clean sheets and helping Spurs secure a third place finish.

Even with a whopping price tag of £3.8m - only Germany's Manuel Neuer costs more - TFF European Championship managers haven't been put off. Will Lloris be lifting the trophy come July 10?
