The double game week is here, and while some of the teams on the slate have pretty blah fixtures… (Cough, Crystal Palace, cough.) The others have optimal schedules to load up your teams for the DGW. Getting there doesn’t really require you to wild card per se, and I personally wouldn’t. The wildcard is for Week 35 and beyond when multiple options present themselves with better fixtures. That is neither here nor there, because tons have already wild carded and taken that off the table so let’s just concentrate on the here and now. I said Boro haul because while they are basically a recycling bin for fantasy relevance, they do hold some value this week because of the teams that they play. With games against Bournemouth and then home to Sunderland they face two teams that don’t have the best propensity for consistency. Having at least one Middlesbrough defender this week and possible more could be a great idea if you can get there with minimal point deductions. We all know the three teams that double, there is no secret solution to this. It is a guessing game for the week. Which is stretched out five days. So grab some DGW fellas and then have a gander below to see what else is going down in the world of transfers. Cheers!

I sorta love it when retread guys come back around and become a viable fantasy entity and a must-own. That is basically what is going on with Jamie Vardy. Dude is on fire, is an unstoppable force, and I may want to reckon with him from a rostering standpoint. Who am I kidding, I am definitely rostering him. I want this guy on my team regardless of fixture right now. Form is winning out and the 5 goals in his last five speak volumes. The better part is that he has 7 goals and 2 assists in his last nine, all comps. So he has basically been in the zone for the better part of six weeks. His price continues to rise and as it sits right now he is a cool 10.0. The forward ranks are becoming a bit more puzzling as we enter the home stretch and it becomes more of a decision making process, rather than a “Well I will take the three best guys. Vardy, in my mind, has entered that Kane, Lukaku, Ibra, Costa and Aguero group. Which is good for chasing points as it seems that there isn’t a template, knocked on three and it falls on personal preference. So with that here are some other ideas and tidbits for the FPL Week 32 transfer window. Cheers!

AHHHH, short weeks ruin stuff like rankings and decision-making.  Well, the skippers of many teams ruin that by rotations and selection conundrums.  That doesn’t even factor into the equation the fitness levels of some high-test fantasy players.  Unfortunately the best strategy is to have a strong enough bench just in case those situations where substitutes come into play.  You don’t need three quality subs, but it doesn’t hurt to say, have two that actually play from week-to-week, that unfortunately gather dust on your bench.  A crisp two points from a player is better then a straight zero.  So think wisely with your main goal in building toward another fast game week set over the weekend and the eventual DGW’s that are coming.  Here are the Fantasy Premier league Rankings for Week 31,  Cheers!

Usually with a fast week, decision making, as it comes to transfer ideas, is a rash decision making process.  I am prone to do it.  I make a decision with my mind instead of my heart, and sometimes leave my self short-sighted for the weeks to come.  No matter, because we are still in the mind set of sorta playing for this week, but still thinking about the double dip factor for the 3 teams that double in Week 34.  So with a quick turnaround this week, we jump into the transfer ideas and views of some players that I see that could help both now and later.  So good luck with the 2-3 days off and then right back into the fray of FPL action.  Cheers!

Yikes folks, three-game weeks in 10 days and if you don’t have the need for adult diapers, now may be the time.  Excitement personified!  This is the last stretch run of games that come in succession like this for the rest of the year, and if you are big proponent of taking a minus and not having it affect you this is the time.  I say that because if you simply take a minus a week for the next 3 and set yourself up with one player for the week, and one for the DGW in 34 w/ United, Soton, and Palace… you will be ahead of the game and hold onto that coveted wildcard for the better looking DGW fixtures after Week 34.  But what the heck do I know? Enjoy the week.  Happy transferring and here are the Week 30 FPL rankings for all positions.  Cheers!

Well, we are back my friends after what seems like an endless array of breaks. No pun intended. Okay, well maybe slightly. The unfortunate thing already is the season ending injury to Seamus Coleman, who before breaking his leg for country, was the second highest scoring defender in the official game. Sucks, but that is what the one free transfer is for, or the minus 4, 8, or even 12 are for. So losing a staple defender isn’t the best news to start the FPL Week 30 with, but there is good news on the horizon. The DGW fixtures have sorta of been set for Week 34. With United, Boro, and Palace getting the doubles. Which if you are setting up for Week 37 and beyond, will be awfully delicious from a double up standpoint and wildcard usage rate. So my advice for now is build for this week with an eye on 34, but a binocular type view on Week 37 (unless you have your WC, because it don’t matter really). So best of luck filling the injury flagged spots on your rosters my lads. Comments, suggestions are always welcomed. Cheers!

We’re once again giving you our loves and hates for each week in a segment called “Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em”.  You should know the drill, but if you don’t, we pick one option from each position.  Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply… basic.  It is more based on my feelings and gut approach for the week’S upcoming and changes from week-to-week.  I look at match-ups and form to formulate my craziness.  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 Fantasy Premier League Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Week 28 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

Now that the back-enders are out of the way for Week 29, we can get down to the meat, potatoes and goal scorers. The quintessential fantasy meal. Getting the right set-up for midfielders is a lot harder than getting the forward ones correct right now. The options are seemingly endless, and given the shape, health and suspension levels going on in the forward ranks it is hard to get that right set for now and for the upcoming weeks. So play for now, grab for form, screw fixture through the middle. As far as the strikers go, it is kinda of weeded out for you through attrition really. With Kane and Ibra gone, it makes the forward ranks Lukaku, Costa, Manolo and maybe a roll of the dice with Sergio. Well, if you came for advice and ranks you came to the right place. Keep reading for the Week 29 Middies and Forward ranks. Cheers!

The blanks are gone, Week 29 is here. Then an unfortunate week off… then the stretch run. That sums it up completely my friends. The bad news is we all sit here hitting F5 to refresh the injury news on the beloved Harry Kane. The injury news will shape teams for the immediate and the distant future. Because he is a nailed-on fantasy asset, and with his timetable for return yet to be determined, it leaves us in a guessing limbo. Then if you add in the two-week ban to Ibra, the forward position narrows itself down by attrition almost. No fear my friends, that is why we all should have the wildcard in hand to attack the next 10 game weeks. I am not saying to use it now, I am saying that if you have it and with the FA Cup coming up after this week, it will be ample time to build your roster for the multiple DGW that are going to be available for several teams and opening up the player universe to basically everyone. Well, everyone with a double that is, and some have two in the future. So build wisely, but stay in the here and now and work for Week 29 first, future later. Here are some immediate transfer options to use for the FPL this week.
