Transfer Tuesday is the first look of the week at who we are looking at early in the week for a multitude of reasons. Those reasons are based on team form, personal form, match-up and price. You factor all those things together, plus a nice cold pint, and you have your one free transfer of the week (or if you been having a few belts go crazy and lose the 4 points and do multiple). Who is going to judge you? It’s your team. Tell ’em all to go piss up a rope and scream from the mountain tops “I do what I want!”. So this week has some great fixture that should be great for fantasy purposes. The Southampton and Leicester, Spurs and Stoke and Arsenal and Swansea all look to have great scoring possibilities by all parties involved. Now if you are like me and like to exploit the weaker teams by stacking your team against them then have a read below, as I am all over West Ham this week as a clean sheet and multiple goal win by them looks possible. So have a look at the transfer ideas that grabbed my attention for the week of double ones.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A review of the weekend that was in the EPL for Week 10. We look at high points, low points, fantasy relevance, and general fantasy stuff from the games this weekend. So let’s get started!Please, blog, may I have some more?
A look at the games that should be on the TV nearest you for Sunday Week 9…
Do you know what today is? It’s only the second most exciting day of the year besides New Year’s Eve. That’s right! It’s Derby Day, and sure there are other Derbies but there are only two that matter (Merseyside and Manchester) and only one of those has annual championship implications. I’m going to lay it out there, I’m unbelievably bias in this instance. I’m a huge Manchester United fan, and other than nuclear war and carnies, there’s not much I like less than Manchester City. I’m going to try and keep it objective but it seemed responsible to at least reiterate my allegiances.Please, blog, may I have some more?

So, week in and week out, we will be giving you our loves and hates for this week in a segment called Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em. We will 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, Week 10 has a few excellent match-ups, and some that look lopsided to me. Fear not though, as there are no lopsided matches in Fantasy EPL. Well, there is if you don’t have the foggiest idea of what you are doing, or just don’t listen to us. So have a look at who we would start and sit based on match-ups and value.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Dreaaaaaam Teaaaamer, I believe you can get me points tonightttttt. Dreaaaaaam Teaaaamer you’re going to lead and be my captain riiight? Sorry for the off-key singing, but that one always gets me. It’s like Shawshank Redemption, if it’s on, I’m watching, or in this case, listening. Well, regardless of my affinity for Gary Wright’s coup de grâce, welcome to the Dream Team. This is the post where Smokey and I round up our rankings for the week, and give you the Razzball FC Starting 11. We’ve linked to all of the rankings posts from the week below at each position. So if you disagree, post your gripes below, or go on each post and harass us one-by-one. You can also say nice things too! We’re very sensitive. So read on young person….Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s “all if’s and but’s were soup and nuts” this week. The reason is because those who own Diego wanna know where he is, and if he is playing. The problem is, “The Special One”, isn’t tipping his hat, instead laying the blame on the Spanish national team and leaving all of us in the so-called fantasy lurch. I don’t like it, but have to trust he has some kind of game plane here to either mask Diego Costa‘s injury or to keep the other team at bay and actually give them hope of winning. It is almost impossible to rank Costa this week, because if he plays, then he is a top-2 guy, no doubt. Or is he? He may not be completely fit, and to be honest, Chelsea probably doesn’t need the talented Spaniard, as they are deep enough to pull off a victory sans him. So take a gander, or even stare at this week’s FPL rankings for the fantasy strikers.

Welcome, midfield groupies, to this week’s rankings. Last week, I missed badly on 2 of my top 3 choices in Eden Hazard, and Raheem Sterling. In fact, after Cesc Fàbregas, my next hits were David Silva at 5 and Alexis Sánchez at 7. Not bad, but I expect more out of my top-3. As I did in my Goalkeeper rankings yesterday, I’ll be putting together a chart each week listing my top-11 midfielders from the previous matchday and their point totals. This way you can see for yourself just how genius… or idiotic I am. So take a look, share your thoughts in the comments, and keep coming back for more FPL goodies.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Defense! Defense! No? Okay, that was boring, unoriginal, and stale. So this week’s Defender rankings are here. Don’t rush like this is Black Friday, and cause a huge scrum over the new over-priced doo-hickey you are after. It’s not going anywhere (it’s permanent type on a page that can be read and enjoyed by all). So share. This week (as a Blues fan) has me a little leery as we are missing our best defender in Branislav Ivanovic, who is a top-3 defender in most formats, and outside player Cesar Azpilcueta will be missing one more match. So there is little there to reinvest you fantasy bucks in besides a Gary Cahill or a John Terry. I think we see Nathan Ake or Kurt Zouma, or both, get some good run in this game as both are super young and super wet behind the ears in Mourhino’s world. Because that’s what it is, we all just suffer through it from a fantasy football perspective. So thankfully for Chelsea, they have the bottom feeding QPR and hope their defense can hold it down with hope, aspiration of clean-“sheetidness” and the vet presence in the middle. So have at the rankings, I know that’s what you came for. See you tomorrow for the forward rankings, or you can leave a comment and we can talk now.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So here we are, another round in the books, and another week of rankings to devour, pick apart, and analyze. Now that I have your attention, three things before we get started… First, I will now refer to all clean sheets against as clean shats. Why? Because it makes me laugh, and well, because you also shatted in the cleanest way possible. Second, going forward, I’ll be ranking all the Keepers on a weekly basis, but focusing my commentary to the top-11. Thirdly, I’ll also be providing a chart detailing the prior week’s top keepers based on their point totals from PremierLeague.com. Within the chart you’ll notice I list the player, their club, the prior week’s point total, their price, and my ranking of the previous week. This chart will hold me responsible for my wins and loses. Here at Razzball FC we’re all about the transparency, and mustard… we really like mustard.Please, blog, may I have some more?
