Now that the Champions League is finished for the week we can jump back on the FPL wagon and take a look at the match-ups that are more pressing in the official game.   Unfortunately rotations are going to be a major factor.  That and the injury to Paul Pogba.  His ownership is too much to look beyond.  My advice for him is this.  If you have owned him from week one then you can bench for the 2 weeks he most likely misses and not lose anything to your accrued team value.  If you only just bought him in the past 2 weeks then you can transfer out and look for some kind of reprieve for fantasy points.  But back to the rotation risks.  All of Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool, Man City, Man United, Arsenal and Everton are all at risk and the rankings will shy away from a few players that either played full 90’s or that didn’t see the pitch as much.  So be heady and keep your ear to the gossip for who will sit and who will play before making a atransfer this week in a trivial yet pivotal game week 5.  Enjoy the rankings and good luck.  Cheers!

As always, the second post is usually the more awaited of the week.  Why?  It’s the same reason that people love the home run, the touchdown, or the over.  It is no different when we start talking about the middies and strikers for the week.  We fall in love with the goals and the tallies that come along with them.  All just facts.  Also a fact is that like always the rankings are always based on price, match-up, form and common sense.  So if you disagree… say so.  I am here for your service in this FPL game that we all love so much.  So enjoy the rankings, long intro’s are for squares and for people who don’t really have much to say so they make it long winded.  Cheers!

When is excess a bad thing?  Welp, when you only have a limited number of spots at your disposal for fantasy goodies (that being 11 starting spots), and then narrow that down even further because of the three-max per team, it becomes interesting.  Next thing you do is add-in the prices of the ridiculously expensive players that City has at it’s disposal…  They have 5 midfielders over 8.0.  I will repeat that: 8.0!  Just for comparison’s sake, there are nine teams that don’t have one player with an 8.0 price tag.  I am not going to repeat myself again there though.  The worst part is, those are just the entry point to the starters for the Sky Blues.  I am not even here to discuss the cheap players who aren’t cheap anyways,  I am hear to talk about Kevin de Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, and Sergio Aguero.  The over 10.0 super club.  I have seen in the preseason that they all have coexisted at some point or another on the pitch.  The problem is that if you wanna diversify your team, which one do you roster?  I am not going to climb to the mountain top and say you need a Man City offensive player, but I will whisper it carelessly.  Wham!
