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!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s Tuesday. It means knee jerk reactions and total punting for Week 2 of the FPL season. I am truly only half-kidding, but people involved in the chase gonna chase regardless. Especially with the first few price changes in the books already. Everyone wants that shiny new bargain toy for a penny cheaper then they just had it. So with the first Transfer Tuesday post of the year, Smokey is here to guide you down the trail of transfer ideas that may be a little off beat or because I am seeing something that you didn’t. Four eyes are better than two, especially when people who are making transfers this early in the week, and making the market climb on a Tuesday. I don’t get it, but people get nervous and make irrational decisions, messing it up for everyone else. So while we live the rational transfer life, here are some transfer ideas for maybe a few days down the road to set yourself up for next week’s set of matches. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The long drawn out week is going to bring out the dreaded “R” word. That word is: rotation… maybe. With two teams playing three games in a weeks time and some playing two in 4 or 5, fitness is going to be tested this week as we steam towards the end of the Premier league season. Trust me, I don’t want the rotation stuff to even be a remote possibility, but in some sense of reality, it is going to happen. With nagging injuries, formation switches, and the bottom teams fighting for relegation, it just seems way to obvious of a stitch that some strange names may rear their faces and ruin the fantasy party. Writing the lede for the rankings is the hardest post, because it is all cut and dry stuff… look up a guy see where he is ranked. So if you made it this far into the opening, good on ya. If you skipped it, don’t really matter and don’t let me waste anymore of your time. So without further adieu, here are the Week 35 FPL rankings. Good luck on the DGW setup and with this week’s transfers. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The DGW makes rankings seem like a person who has a stutter. Every third guy is from the same team, and are basically only enticing because of the extra fixture. This week, that is not the case. The fixtures are bordering on blah and the options to gain fantasy aptitude are limited. Yea the Palace players seem interesting and then you realize their opponents. Then you move onto United and realize that, who do you really trust there? Then you have Middlesbrough who’s favorite soccer stylings seems to be stuck in neutral. Not very appealing my friends, like I said. The best case scenario for the week is to take a minimum hit transfer wise and bring in the usual DGW faces that you hear about all over the inter-webs, and of course use some of that good ole common sense. So good luck with transfer ideas and enjoy some DGW rankings for week 34 of the FPL. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yikes folks, three-game weeks in 10 days and if you don’t have the need for adult diapers, now may be the time. Excitement personified! This is the last stretch run of games that come in succession like this for the rest of the year, and if you are big proponent of taking a minus and not having it affect you this is the time. I say that because if you simply take a minus a week for the next 3 and set yourself up with one player for the week, and one for the DGW in 34 w/ United, Soton, and Palace… you will be ahead of the game and hold onto that coveted wildcard for the better looking DGW fixtures after Week 34. But what the heck do I know? Enjoy the week. Happy transferring and here are the Week 30 FPL rankings for all positions. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
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 14 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).Please, blog, may I have some more?
The calm before the blank week storm is upon us. Soon after this week we will determine most of our course for the next few weeks, as the FA cup will dictate the upcoming fixtures in Week 28 and so on. Let us not get too far ahead of ourselves and concentrate on this week’s tasty fixtures and the fantasy appeal that they offer. Week 25 is a key point in the yearm and if you don’t have to make a transfer and can go into Week 26 with two, then by all means, do so. Keep that WC in your top pocket and trudge forward into fantasy glory. Here are the Week 25 rankings for the official game. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
When is being too offensive too offensive? This is fantasy, so anything goes really. I mean, the term fantasy and play goes as far as to include Magic the Gathering and D&D. So with loose terms come loose terminology. I read that on a fortune cookie the other day. So make fun of the machine that wrote that, not me. But is stacking your offense too much off a good thing? I say hell no! However, if you wanna spend your allotted money, be my guest. This week sees four of the top fantasy producing teams; Arsenal, United, Chelsea and Liverpool, all with favorable fixtures that are most certainly (or we hope) to give some fantasy goodness. So with thinking positive thoughts and some luck for all, here are the Week 22 Fantasy Premier League Rankings. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fast schedule equals fast rankings in the high holy season. So no hub bub, just rankings. Happy New Year to all!

It isn’t a matter or who, it is a matter of how many. Indulging in a salary cap league is the hardest itch to scratch. It is almost like you have constant Alopecia rashes and are fiending for a longer stick to scratch your back. The strain of contention I am basically going over here is the striker combination or combinations. To me, it is a three-headed beast comprised of Zlatan, Diego, and Aguero. The latter of the two coming back from their retrospective suspensions and are now on the docket for ownership. The Aguero one has been gone over dozens of time by hundreds of fantasy experts. he is a must own player who offers what most can not. The problem now is that the other two, Zlatan and Diego, may be the best bang for your buck combo going. That is who I am advising you to go with… There is no wrong answer here because we all manage our own teams and have history with such and such a player and go by our own instincts. But the numbers and form are completely in Costa and Iobra’s favor, over bring in the 12.8 Kun. Goals in quantity are there and the run of games are in their favor. So go with the European duo instead of dipping into the warm waters of the South American. Now that the forwards are out of the way, let’s get to the other musings and stylings of the FPL transfer world.Please, blog, may I have some more?
