Rankings make the right turns seem to make sense. That is why we keep doing them every single week.  The information super-highway of FPL goodness.  Week 6 is coming to you on the heels of the Carabao Cup games and once again we are left with the questions of rotations that surround our teams.  With the deadline before we actually know it becomes a trust game.  Do we trust Pep?  Do we trust Jose?  Hell to the no.  The FPL game is using your best guess against the 5 million other best guessers.  Some are just better guessers than others at the right time.  So with other hub-bub here are the FPl rankings for all positions for Week 6.  Good luck and Cheers!Rankings make the right turns seem to make sense.

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!

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 4 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

Oh, Week 4 you young and burdening beast.  The season has just started and we are already questioning the judgments that we made yet a month ago.  No worries though faithful followers of the Razz.  Each week is almost like a new beginning if you had a wildcard to use at your discretion every week.  The rankings of midfielders and forwards is blossoming into a conundrum right before our very eyes.  We planted it in the summer, watched the transfer window closed and now that the shop is closed this is where we are.  18 more weeks until roster shake-ups again (if any) and the inevitable new wildcard.  So if you haven’t used your first wildcard yet, bene.  You have more restraint then most of the 5 million other players of this game.  So here are the rankings for the midfielders and forwards for week 4, regardless of wildcard.  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!

The Prem is here, and we can all now rejoice. Now that the season has kicked off, I will be doing my best to fill your Mondays with sweet, fond memories from the games from over the weekend. I also ask for some patience as I work through how to best provide both a summation and meaningful outlook on the matches.

I was hoping to write about all 20 teams for this post, but it started to become lengthy and I started to get sleepy. So, here are my notes over the weekend on Arsenal to Liverpool (alpha order because why not?)…I will hopefully have Man City to West Ham by tomorrow.

If you enjoyed yesterday’s salad and appetizer courses, then you will love today’s main course and dessert.  I realize you can’t get anywheres in the official game without having a nodded on choice at keeper and a stellar yet filled with differential based defense.  But the real fun in building your roster is comprising it with as many affordable stars through the middle of the pitch and up top.   So just like yesterday’s rankings I mix in price, match and some good ole common sense.  The form comes later because after all this is just week one of a long journey my friends.  Some great matches are on the table for a lot of star players, so here’s hoping you can squeeze as many of them in as possible.  So just in case you needed a guiding hand here is week 1 of the FPL season rankings for Middies and Strikers.  Cheers!

The Hammers are one of the hardest teams to peg coming into the 2017/18 campaign. They currently have 7 players injured – Aaron Cresswell, Manuel Lanzini, Andy Carroll, Michael Antonio, Diafra Sakho, Sofiane Feghouli, Chekhou Kouyate – but have transferred in a few playmakers that should help them get through a pretty tough schedule to start the season. Marko Arnautovic and Javier “Chicharito” Hernández are the two big names here, and both could provide great value for a number of FPL managers this season.

Hammers start the season away to Manchester United, but have great fixtures immediate after, facing Southampton (A), Newcastle (A), Huddersfield (H) and West Brom (A) from weeks 2-5. That stretch is followed with a tough home match versus Spurs in Gameweek 6, and then back into the green fixtures with Swansea (H), Burnley (A), Brighton (H) and Crystal Palace (A).  While starting the season with three road starts might prove difficult, keep in mind that they do not possess too much of a “home field” advantage going into just their second season playing home matches at the London Stadium.

After Arsenal’s first finish outside the top-4 in 21 years, the Gunners enter a season with a decent amount of uncertainty. Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil, the top two scorers for Arsenal in the FPL last year, are nearing the ends of their contracts with no sign of extensions, and there’s still time this transfer session for one or either of them to move.  As usual they have a bevy of talented but oft injured midfielders and solid defenders, but the real treat this year is the expensive new striker Alexandre Lacazette, who comes over from Lyon after scoring 28 goals last year.

When perusing the the list and prices of forwards, it is easy to wanna shop exclusively at the posh department stores.  But the prices of them will limit the ability to have more than two.  Is two enough, sure, but when isn’t three the magic number?  They allow you to roster three, so why not take full advantage of what they are giving you and add that to your fantasy tool belt?  With the entire world rostering or having their hand in on Lukaku (48% owned) at £11.5,  Kane (35% owned) at £11.5, and Lacazette (17.6% owned) at £10.5.  Those are the three highest-priced and owned strikers in the official game. With the numbers of fantasy entries into the fantasy jambalaya where do we find differentials and better yet where do we find players on a budget.  So where are the extras shekels being scraped together for a useful yet intrinsically awesome third striker with differential appeal.  I will tell you where you can find some ideas on this.  This post.  You got this far into the intro to quit now, so you might as well sit back relax and enjoy the bellowing words of usefulness. Cheers!
