Dang, it feels like forever since I wrote about the weekly goings on. I have missed you like I miss my toilet seat, usually a lot, and sprayed all over. This Transfer Tuesday is kind of irrelevant for some because if you did it right, you used your wildcard this week and your roster should be ready to go. For the few of you that didn’t, well, here are some cheaper under the carpet type ideas that most people probably aren’t using this week. So you can either use them to augment your roster or completely ignore it, curse at me and kill my pet canary. Either way, I win, because I hate that bird… it was left to me by a room share friend that over-stayed his welcome and always smelled like summer sausage, but I digress. So enjoy the week of goodies that Razzball has to offer you leading up to game time on Saturday for Week 23. As always….. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, I hope you all heeded the advice of us here at Razzball and waited to use your wildcard until this week. I would assume you did, because we are all of the intelligent variety and from I hear it is spreading. Actually I think that may be craziness, but crazy people are somewhat intelligent in their own way. Randomly wearing helmet guy, you get what I am saying. So with the FA Cup finished over the weekend, it gives you a set-up of what will be for the next few weeks in the FPL. Unfortunately, with some injuries and some suspensions, it has altered the state of some fantasy stalwarts. This post has been in the brewing for weeks now, and I have scoured the internet viewing everyone else’s theories on this wildcard business. Some good one’s out there so props to ya, but I think I have a better idea or one that is a variation of others that seems to be not fool proof by any means, but in my head, they are very feasible for a better run at the trophy. So sit back, relax, this is going to be a long post with lots of different directions but one common path for you to have the best club with your gift of the wildcard…Please, blog, may I have some more?
With 22 weeks in the books and 16 more to go, we in many ways find ourselves at the crossroads of the season. We have a few weeks left to use our January wild card so it’s time to start our rest of season planning. This is where things can get tricky, we’re still a week away from January Transfer deadline day and no one can predict injuries. Michael Owens scoffs at my last statement “I predicted my last two dozen injuries”. Oh sorry Michael…”It’s okay, go on”. Anyway, what I was getting at is schedule is the only rest of season factor we can predict with some certainty. So what we’ve done is put together a chart listing each club’s remaining matches with each fixture highlighted red, yellow, or green depending upon the caliber of that particular opponent. Our system of ranking is based off applying a value to each road win (5 points), home win (4 points), draw (3 points), road loss (2 points), and home loss (1 point). We then separated out the home totals and road totals and divided each by the number of games each club had played at home/road. This in the end, gave us an average point total for home and road fixtures. In the coming days we’ll use this chart, dubbed our FPL Schedule Ranker as a measuring stick to look at potential booms and busts over the next 16 weeks. Smokey will also be using some of the data here in his big Wildcard post coming Monday. So the long and the short of it, stay tuned. Over the coming weeks my goal is to update this chart every few weeks rest of season to reflect form. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Technically we’re three weeks past the halfway point of the season, but with a two week break in action, it seemed like the right time to look at who’s provided the greatest value to us through the first 22 weeks of the Fantasy Premier League season. This isn’t a list of the top scorers from each position or the highest form rating, but those players who are giving us the most bang for our collective bucks. One wrinkle, I’ll be basing the pricing off of each player’s lowest price tag during the season. I do this to highlight the value of buying at the right time.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Transfer window is still open and there’s sure to be some sparks come deadline day. We can’t predict the future, well unless you’re me..but that’s besides the point. There’s some new imports to FPL previously unavailable. So let’s review the best of the new additions to the game, and talk about what impact I think they’ll have. There’s plenty more to come before the end of the month but let’s take it as it comes. Yeah we’ll review those at the end of the window, and Ralph already covered the big rumors in his 4-Part team by team mammoth. So let’s get into the new additions to fantasy premier league via transfers. Sit back homie relax, in fact grab a six pack, and kick back while I kick facts.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So every week, I review all the games…yeah, I do it running on high-test caffeinated drinks, squeezing as much of the game info as I can, and then form a sort of “dream team” of my very own. I do it differently, and I use the best players, but at a shrunken budget, because we all can’t be high rollers. Why the shrunken budget you may ask? Because it’s more fun and challenging for me, and I can’t just look at the top scorers and do fifty-two card pick up. So with Week 22 now officially closed, lets take a look at my formidable Starting XI. Keep in mind that I limit myself to a £70.0m budget, and I will conform to the standard 4-4-2 form. Enjoy!
