The final transfer idea thread of the year is a tough one to translate via the typed word.  If we were sitting in a pub, on your dime of course, we could converse for a good 8-10 minutes about what to do.  But alas, all I have is my home row keys of fantasy goodness to guide you.  This week is not a time to be cute and be all: “I am going to change the world with my transfers.”  Because it is honestly too late.  You want the most points possible.  It is no different than any other week, just that you have to be a little different to do it.  I am specifically talking about people playing for pride in climbing the ladder of overall standings, and the guys you are chasing in your mini leagues.  This is the best advice I can give you, grab as many stars as you can, that may be different then the guy/girl you are trailing.  That dynamite piece of fantasy analysis is brought to you by sleep deprivation and a steady supply of marshmallows.  So with that your roster should consist of Alexis Sanchez, KDB, Kane, Kun and Payet.  After that, the world is your oyster.  All those names that I just mentioned have decent enough match-ups that the are sit proof and at this point in the season you have to play them.  To fill in the blanks for your team let’s check out the transfer ideas I could see falling your way for week 38 in the FPL.

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.  We used to do this in tandem, but since I am flying solo while Ralph explores all the tallest mountains in the world, you are stuck with my and only my opine.  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 37 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

This is it my friends.  I know that I am being semi-presumptuous that we are mates, but for the sense of suspense, let’s just pretend that we are.  And I promise to stop stalking you on social media.  Fair?  Yeah, I thought so, DM canceled. So week 37 is here and the differentials that exist are different than the previous week of doubles in 34.  By differentials, I mean that the dispersion of talent is very broad-based here.  There are a ton more lesser names to be rostered this week than the star power that previously existed in the double of days gone by.  Transfer ideas this week, start and end with guys on doubles.  End sentence.  I know the Villa and Newcastle fixture is so tempting, but where does that leave you for next week when the Toons play the Spurs?  All about the doubles.  I just want to keep instilling that into your minds.  Rankings this week reflect the doubles, as they should with only two weeks remaining.  Two pieces of advice this week…  First don’t be afraid of the minus, as it doesn’t hurt you as much as you think with guys on two games.  Secondly, if you are rostering Kane, Sanchez, and Aguero, you need to get rid of one and only one as all three have favorable fixtures in week 38.  So here is this week’s rankings.  Good luck and cheers!

The only moves you are allowed to make this week are ones that get you to the most DGW players as possible.  I don’t want any back talk or guff mister/misses.  You can go right to your room with no supper, or hell air for all I care.  There are two weeks remaining in the season and if you are still holding any chips or cards up your sleeves, then… well, I don’t know what to tell ya.  Week 37 is all about the chips and boosts and triple captains.  It is also about the maximizing of your roster to have no less than 10 double guys.  Regardless of what the point deduction is, you need to get 10.  I will take nine if you are not chasing points in your mini league, but 10 seems like a nice round number.  It gives 20 plus games for which to score, or not score with the way the rotations may unfold.  Listen, I can sit here and tell you the real good reason to come out on Friday, but people seem to think it’s a great idea to write what I said three weeks ago today.  Not everyone is fast on the upkeep, or original with the turn of phrase.  But I digress, I have been here for years pumping out piles of knowledge and it doesn’t change from day to day.  The transfer advice is no different.  All original, often imitated never duplicated.  Here are some transfer ideas for the double week 37 that you should probably use all, add two more and then throw in one for good luck…

The calm before the double week storm is never an easy decision making process.  There are so many factors to figure out.  Who plays whom?  Who is in good form?  Who is in a rotation?  All good questions, that, unless you are privy to the managerial decision process you are at the mercy of guessing unfortunately.  I, as a keen-witted and sharp as I may be, can only right so many times.  Hell, I try to shoot for 50%, and I fail at that in most cases.  Nonetheless I come every day, week in and week out to give you the ideas that many like me put out.  It may not be precise but it is at least a guide for you to give the last decision process, your own opinion, too.  So Week 36 has some really tasty matches for the top flight lads and then the rotation guys (Liverpool) rear there ugly heads.  All we can do is hope and pray that we guess right, or avoid the situation all together and look for differentials elsewheres.  So here’s Week 36 final rankings of the scorers and heartbreakers and shakers.  Cheers!

To quote a movie that we have all heard, or have been forced to listen to if you have kids or nieces: “In the first time in forever” we have a non-double week, non-truncated week, and no blanks from anyone.  My memory is bad as all get out, but it feels longer than a few weeks to me. So the week before the big double it is sorta like a moving week.  You can’t really afford to bring in anyone that isn’t on a double for Week 37, but you can’t completely trust in some teams that have a double next week for this week to contribute.  I am firmly looking at Chelsea, Norwich, and Everton.  We have all been burned by the Toffees, and I, as your friend and local FPL expert, advise against all moves in that general direction.  Even the other team in the Sae Town is iffy with rotations and the Europa’s still going on.  So that leaves a whole sixteams with which to roster.  Now you know why I am all on the Cats this week and next, because to me, they have shiner appeal, especially defensively than a lot of other clubs.  Add in the fact that they are fighting relegation and boom, fantasy asset…  So here are the back-enders for Week 36 of the FPL. Cheers!

It’s a sad state of fantasy affairs, the season is drawing ever closer to a conclusion.  Well, it will be a happy ending for anyone who supports the Fox, as they look to have basically clinched the league title.  I know I may be a week premature there, but I am fairly confident that they will get the job done eventually.  So on to Week 36.  I myself am attacking my roster with piss and vinegar this week, as I get to use my wildcard and completely re-tool for the last three weeks of games.  The doubles in Week 37 will be a great determining factor of who and why I bring several players in, but there are some tasty-tasty match-ups both before and after the Week 36 double.  So setting yourself with the right players is clutch right now if you are chasing titles in your mini-league, head-to-head clashes or just playing for the glory of climbing the overall rankings.  So with transfers limited (if you don’t have the option of a WC) and options for this week yummy, let us jump into the guys I like for now and some for the double weeks.  Good luck on the transfers and be heady that there are UCL games today for City and Europa on Thursday for ‘Pool.  So save the jumping at guys until after those are over.  Cheers!

Short week for info, but still, none the less, you get rankings.   With Week 34 doubles over and everyone basking in the hondo or above, you scored.  And yes, you should have scored a 100 or more.  If you didn’t, you either can’t read what I write from week in and week out or your team is dead and it totally reverts back to point number one.  This week’s transfer ideas are blah-squared, as you are most likely stuck with what you have or you have to make an emergency transfer or two to either use one of your chips or to just field a roster.  Most teams this week will be doing one of two things using their wildcard to fill out their team that they sold out weeks in advance to field a competitive double team, or they will be holding fast and pocketing their transfer for next weeks broader schedule.  Either way there is no wrong answer here, because you still have to field a competitive team regardless of how you get there.  So stay strong with your three gunners, three Liverpool (though there may be a rotation again) and try and field the best XI possible. So here is the Week 35 rankings, good luck and Cheers!

Short weeks breathe different to me.  This week is completely no different.  Take a look at the match-ups they will stream, and then go a different direction.  If you were ever into zagging when everyone else zigs, this is the week.  With only four weeks remaining, I think you owe it to yourself to be a little different.  You have to be different.  There are such a lack of usable options that will cause all to be cautiously dumb.  That, my friends, is a bad thing.  We get one free transfer to express ourselves.  So go in a completely obtuse way this week.  Look at the Southampton game, because they are playing Villa.  But also look at the Villa squad, because they are playing S’ton and no one is looking in that direction.  If they do bad, so what? You tried something different and most likely got the minimum points.  Who is to say that the guy you roster wouldn’t have gotten just two points or for that matter completely pull a Lukaku.  I think I am turning that into a thing by the way, I mean, everyone has seen the movie Kingpin or I’m assuming you have, so they say Munsoned.  FPL players don’t get Lukaku’d.  Don’t be a lemming be an owner of a proud Fantasy Premier League team, one that you can put on your resume for that job application to Target.  Hell, put me down as a reference.  So here’s some transfer ideas for Week 35 of the FPL.  Cheers!
