Decision Day 2015 is upon us and, surprisingly, has nothing to do with politics or even Donald Trump. Sunday marks the final day of the MLS regular season and there is much still to be decided. Which team out of Portland, San Jose, Seattle, and Sporting KC will be left out of the playoffs? Will it be the Red Bulls or FC Dallas that lay claim to the Supporters’ Shield? Which teams grab the knockout round byes?

It’s the biggest DFS slate of the year for MLS with all 20 teams playing Sunday afternoon and evening. Personally, I won’t have a ton of skin in the game as I’ll actually be in attendance at Sporting Park watching Sporting KC take on the Galaxy though I’ll have to get some action this week. Because of the full slate, we’ll look at a variety of players to target without getting too in-depth. I’ll only be targeting players on teams that have something to play for as I don’t trust the already-eliminated teams to field normal starting lineups.

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, 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 Fantasy Premier League Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 10….

It’s back again, everybody’s favorite time of the week. No, not Pizza Friday. No, not Saturday morning either. Okay so maybe it’s “one” of the favorite times of the week, at least for me. It’s the Forward and Midfield rankings, for matchweek 10! Not only is it another week of Premier League action, it’s also Manchester derby week. So break out the good scotch and your cleanest under-roos, we got plans this weekend. Those plans involve early drinking, watching TV in “clean” underwear, and a vat of humus. Hey, I like to keep it healthy with the snacks, don’t want to blow up like Steve Bruce. Ya feel me? This week presents an unusual challenge as we have most of the top of the table clubs matched up against each other. Oh, and West Ham faces Chelsea. In fact if the Blues win this week, they could jump Stoke! Seriously don’t get too excited, but Europa is within reach. You’ll notice that some of the high end names have dropped off off the ranks this week, as injuries, concerns about the grueling schedule for Champions League clubs, and Claudio Ranieri have thrown a wrench in our squads. So sit back, stick a hand down the front of your khakis, and get ready for the Forward and Midfield, Fantasy Premier League rankings, week 10! Cheers…

When you walk into a club, any club we don’t care what side of the line you are on here at Razzbol FC, the first thing you do is check the surroundings.  You don’t just walk in and take the first place available. Nope you must take it all in.  That is my motto that I am embossing on all my t-shirts for the keeper and defence of things for fantasy footie.  Because once you’re in there you need to find out who is the guy going to keep you out of trouble, and who are the girls who are going to be your safety net.  They all can’t be winners, hell even some Razzball writers on the oft chance occasionally get laid and procreate.  They are not unlike most people in the industry…trolls is a good word.  Me and Ralph handsome as all get out, that’s why we are the face of this store front. So this week is fairly similar to last, several evenly contested matches, and the likelihood of clean-sheetedness is as about as good as hanging with fantasy insiders and not actually talking about anything but fantasy inside stuff.  Lame is the best way to describe it, captains of our industry my eye. More like captains of the AV club.  Anyway rant over, rankings ahead, so hoist the sails, put on some Chaka Khan and lets get down tonight or day (Stupid time zones).

Two guys, not one but two shocked the world of FPL this week.  Radio Raheem went all “I am freshly baked and back from Jamaica” and the Dutch Easy Bake Oven known as Giorginio Wijanldum.  Their ownership prior to the past weekend’s fixtures combined were under 12%.  The funny thing about that little thing is 8% of those teams are dead in the water and waiting for the call back from The Real World.  Unexpectancy is fun and it makes the world a round place, Columbus said that.  The key this week is to wait out those 4 UCL games for the the likes of Arsenal. Chelsea, Man City and Man United.  Waiting is clutch especially when the injury fairy jumps up and snaps ya in the ass like a turtle all tripped out on Mescaline. So as the usual, make moves to help your club today and tomorrow. Don’t follow the flock, and if you have stars that struggled a bit, be patient.  I am clearly looking at everyone that brought in Pelle and De Bruyne last week.  Points are coming.  This week let’s see what the Ole Smoke Dog has in store for you in terms of transfer ins and outs. Cheers!

Boy I didn’t see that coming…. who knew that Georginio Wijnaldum was going to be the perfect replacement for Sergio Aguero in your FPL squads. His 4 goal outburst against Norwich on Sunday tied Kun’s gameweek 8 for the highest single game total of the season, and by far the most surprising of performances to date. So the question on all the cool kids minds is “Ahhhhh Ralph, do I pick him up?”. And in the tradition of any good fence sitter I’ll say, it depends. The next five fixtures look pretty, pretty, preeeettty good for the Magpie ace, and his price stands at a discounted £6.8 at the moment. So yeah he’s worth an add, maybe to replace a Nathan Redmond at the end of your bench. But can we really consider any Newcastle player to be a dependable option week in and week out? There in lies the problem, though Wijnaldum is an established player with a decent goal scoring record during his time in Holland. Do you trust him? Will he be a week in and week out performer? Or is he a player to consider when he has a good run of fixtures? Time will tell, but for the next few weeks he’s worth a flier. Here’s what else I saw in matchweek 9.

If you are reading this in the confines of your work bathroom on your usual 10;30 AM jaunt then welcome aboard again.  First things first, everyone is in the same boat roster wise.  That is the by far most important thing about this week, no need to panic and regret using your WC already.  Two moves to an effective roster is all that this week requires.  The first is sell Aguero and bring in a forward of your liking.  The second is sell your least favorite midfielder, and you will have all the money in the world because Kun is the most expensive lad in this universe, or the one that’s most injured. Once you’ve relieved yourself of “Kun”, bring in Kevin De Bruyne.  That’s it.  That’s all the advice you need this week.  The rankings below are important because well I took the time to do them, and you should read them and take some advice from the hand that feeds you all types of fantasy know how.  Week 9 Midies and forwards rankings are just one click away.  Good luck and cheers

These damn international breaks, they get me all shook up and off my game. Just when I start to get going, BAM! International break. But here we are, all back up in this biz. It’s matchweek 9 and everything’s changed since we last spoke. Aguero’s hurt, Liverpool fans like their manager, and Chelsea is still awful. Wait that last part didn’t change, but I figured I’d remind EVERYONE..Oh hey Smokey, didn’t see you there. Don’t worry buddy they say it gets better. Maybe? This is all neither here nor there, we’re here to talk about the men that keep the ball out of the net, rarely score, and who’s value is tied to those 4 little points. We have quite a busy Saturday with 8 fixtures on the docket. With a quick glance it’s easy to see there’s a handful of promising fixtures when looking for clean sheet potential. Clubs like City, West Brom, and Arsenal all have quite welcoming fixtures as they return from the break and our rankings reflect that. So without further adieu, it’s the Fantasy Premier League Rankings, Week 9 for Keepers and Defence.

I was all set to write this big intro paragraph about whether or not we had to have the Atomic Ant, Sebastian Giovinco, in our lineups this week until I started my research and discovered Giovinco won’t be playing for Toronto on Wednesday night. He won’t be there because he’s with the ITALIAN NATIONAL TEAM helping the Azzuri qualify for Euro 2016. It can’t be overstated how crazy it is that an MLS player is good enough to be among the best 23 for one of the world’s soccer powers. He’s the kind of Designated Player (DP) that MLS needs to bring in more of instead of its obsession with the aging star Frank Lampard-types. As I write this, Giovinco just assisted on the equalizing goal for Italy against Norway. What a talent.
