So, as we do every match day, we’re giving you our loves and hates for this week in a segment called Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em. You should know the drill but if you don’t, we each pick one option from each position, and then, for a bonus, we show you our genius line-ups for the week. Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply… basic. The best part is, you get two opinions for the price of one. We do this as a tandem, it’s the Smokey and Ralph show. It’s like musical chairs, without all the screaming kids and regretful feeling of loss. So sit back, relax, and have a look at who we would start and sit based on match-ups and value. It’s Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 29 Fantasy Premier League.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I don’t know about you but this week looks tasty for one son of Kun. No goals in his last 2 and playing a little behind the goal scoring shadow of of Edin Dzeko, not really but it’s more of a short joke because he is really in every one’s shadow in some shape or form. Burnley has given up 6 goals in their last 3 home fixtures, and does anyone really see the 2 goal average this week shrinking to say 1.75. Funny thing about making Aguero number one this week is that there really isn’t any value in him currently. He is owned by everyone and their brother as well he should be. The way the contracts are set up you can basically have Kane and Sergio on your team for less than the price of a lap dance. That my friends is the honest truth, or so I read. I never frequent those places and I think I read it somewhere’s on my way to church. The only reason I bring this info up about Aguero is that we are all top 1000-1500 players, well the ones that read posts like this and aren’t a dead team. He is owned by over 95% of the teams, so if we are all rostering him and captaining him most of the time how are we going to make up ground on the lads ahead of us. Simple answer is gamble on one midfielder and one forward option that the guys ahead of you don’t currently roster. If you don’t the deficit you face will be your own fault. Enjoy this week’s top forward options for the week of 29. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week it’s all about the little Spanish guys in the midfields of England. Seriously look at Santi Cazorla and David Silva the two of them are like little FPL elves baking tasty treats inside trees for their managers. I hope they show up with the chocolate filled ones that look like little self portraits. Those things are delicious. In all truthiness I’m just a huge Silva fanboy and have been all season long. I’ve been staying the course and sticking with him ever since he jumped back onto the radar in December. I ranked him 1st in my expert rankings on Togga yesterday and he’s in the top spot below. Santi Caz on the other hand it’s taken me a while to come around on. When he first jumped to North London from Malaga in 2012 I loved him. He scored in bunches, took a ton of the free kicks etc. in route to a 12 goal, 13 assist season accumulating 205 FPL points along the way. Last year was a lost year as he only provided 4 goals and modest returns. So I was a bit skeptical of a 30 year old midfielder the size of a tall 11 year old coming off a season only good by Ashley Young standards. Well he’s done two things first proved me wrong, and second restored my faith that he’s the lad to own in a squad of talented options in the middle of the pitch. And man please, homeboys haircut game is all kinds of swagged out. Arsenal fans love him and so do FPL managers, but I’ll save some love spit for the blurb. Without further ado the Midfield Ranks for Week 29 of Fantasy Premier League.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Your humble legend has returned from a week hiatus in a place much warmer than the formerly frozen tundra known as Hoboken, NJ. Did you miss me? Well I missed all of you, like I missed my favorite stool at my favorite pub, but not as much as I missed Fantasy Premier over the last couple of weeks. Sure my Blues took down the Capital One Cup, and face PSG in just a few short hours. But the Capital one is my bottom girl, and the UCL is that model that plays games with my head, but keeps things exciting. See the EPL on the other hand, that’s wifey. So now that the how do ya do’s and how’s ya fathers are out of the way let’s discuss the defenders to target this week. As always we lead with the vampire-esque right back who’s number 1 in our hearts but number 2 in our program Branislav Ivanovic. More about him after the jump. Now onto the Defender Ranks for Week 29 of FPL.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Girls don’t fart, ice cream doesn’t make you fat, Falcao can still help Manchester United. All things that are utterly more believable than keepers can have value without providing clean sheets. Sure you can get your one or two measly points from saves but that’s not why we’re in this right? We’re in it to win it no ifs, ands, or buts. If that’s the case then you need to be prepared to move on from your keepers on a weekly basis. More often than not I find most of my transfers at this point in the season are spent on keepers and defenders with a clean sheet focus. This is a great way to maximize your points and get the most from your incoming transfers from week to week. So keep that in mind when checking out my keeper ranks for the week below, and as always good luck lads!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ahhh back to the normal week. No more scrunched schedules. No more teachers dirty looks. No more relying on baseball posts to cheer me up, although half of them make zero to no sense and just use senseless data written by guys who wouldn’t know an actual baseball situation if it fell out of the sky, danced and then wiggled slightly. So week 29 is here and there are less than 10 week to go. If you haven’t formulated a strategy I have a new one go to the hardware store buy a ball peen hammer and smash both of your pinky fingers. No but in all seriousness before you go all Casino on your hands stick around for another transfer ideas of some lads that may be sneaky plays for the week that not many others in your chase for glory aren’t rostering. As always good luck, and roster correctly or you will die a fast death like that scene in Indiana Jones with the whole goblet of god type stuff.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s start today’s post off with a little sharing session. I’m needy. Ask my wife, family, and friends they’ll all confirm this. I need constant love, encouragement, and most of all distraction. Look at the balloon! I’m more or less a 33 year old man-child with a receding hairline and the body of a Greek God. My constant neediness is so bad that every time my wife goes out of town on business I sleep with a replacement body pillow dressed in her pajamas. What, did I over share? Oh sorry. Where I’m going with all this is I miss my Fantasy Premier League on week’s like this and need to fill the void. Well thank god I have Mondogoal.

So in another week of quick turn arounds we enter our first week with a double up in FPL play. As Spurs and Chelsea faced off in yesterday’s Capital One Cup, their scheduled week 27 opponents QPR and Leicester stood pat. Due to scheduling issues Chelsea and Leicester will not replay their Week 27 matchup until April 29th and will count for matchweek 34. This means Spurs and QPR will be the only teams doubling up in week 28, and if you’re an astute, calculating FPL manager you should be well prepared to take advantage of the top assets from each squad. So in this vein we rank out the top 11 options at each position. On to the Fantasy Premier League Rankings, Week 28.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well the point of listing anyone not on Spurs or QPR to transfer in this week is probably pointless. We only get so many free transfers a week and last week some of us had to scramble to form a roster so no extra transfers for free. So with Spurs and the R’s face double game weeks for the first time this year and well if you aren’t adding Spurs players this week then you need to be hit in the head with a pipe wrench and thrown in the meadows. It’s simple this week from the transfer standpoint, you need a guy to get you 5 points in 2 games for the minus 4 points to not sting as much. We are greedy though, we want to get double digit games from all players with 2 games. While I don’t love the options that QPR has based on their 2 tough match-ups, as the face Arsenal and Spurs at home. Which is sometimes good because at Loftus they are a different team. So my best advice is to use it as a swerve move to capture points from the leaders or if you already own the maximum 3 Tottenham players. So have at my list of Fantasy Premier League transfers ideas, it’s littered with fun stuff and stickers for the kids.Please, blog, may I have some more?
