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!

With Blanks draw contempt. A brilliant man once said that, and that man was Wayne Shaw’s brother Bernard Shaw. Smart guy, wandering transfer fingers though. So with week 26 here, and as I have so elaborately explained in the transfer post, don’t be a lemming! Unless being a lemming in the transfer market is to defend your throne. If you are chasing points in your money leagues or mini-leagues, think differently. You kinda have to with the blank weeks and soon-to-be double game weeks. Going with the flow wasn’t cool for the Fonz, so it shouldn’t be cool with you. You think Pinky Tuscadero would have paid him any attention if he was boring? Hell nah. Where was I, oh that’s right, week 26 rankings. So this week is broken down into basically defense and attack with midfielders and forwards coming your way manana, so stay tuned. But stay in the here and now and concentrate on the keepers and defense. Rostering too many blank players leaves you with a blank expression when Monday rolls around and you are sitting 10 points below the average score. So sit back, relax and enjoy week 26 because the roller coaster that is the FPL is now in full effect. Cheers!

Another quick turn around and a slew of news, injuries, and new players on new teams.  It is a great day to be alive when the rankings come out for the Premier League set for game week 24.  Why, you may ask?  Because I slave over a hot stove, day in and day out to stay on top of things so you don’t.  And yes, if you wanna cheat and skip ahead by all means, Sergio Aguero is my top ranked forward after missing last game week with a niggle.  Lot’s of games to love this week with Liverpool, Spurs and believe or not I like the fantasy output for Palace this week.  Unfortunately, Chelsea face off against Arsenal and it takes some fantasy luster off the game, shucks.  Oh well, on to Week 24 rankings.  Cheers!

This month is like a whirlwind covered in toasted almonds. Three match weeks in 8 days, and it only gets worse here after for the Smoke Dawg. With matches upcoming for Boxing Day and thereafter, there won’t be a day off starting that game week until January 4th. That;s right that is like 9 days of consecutive football. So let’s not get ahead of ourselves and concentrate on 17 and let 18-20 figure it out. As always, the rankings are based on the metric of form, fixture, and sense. So for you following at home, that would be FFS. And when something goes wrong, that is what we can blame and then shout what FFS actually means at someone close to you. Not at me, though I probably deserve it. Here are some rankings for FPL Week 17. Cheers!

Typing the lede into any story is always the hardest. I mean, I wanna sound interesting but not cliche. Cheeky but not corny, and just witty enough to gain your trust. Listen, if I haven’t gained, earned, or warranted your trust after basically ten years in this game, then someone needs to tell me. I mean seriously, an intervention of fantasy proportions is definitely way overdue. So with all that cheeky, witty and interesting stuff out of the way, what else needs to be said besides this weeks rankings? Week 10 rankings for the FPL are here. Enjoy the reads, ranks and wits of wisdom my friends. Good luck in your transfers and thanks for the read. Cheers!

Like I said, it’s never a bad thing to have an investment value in an Arsenal player, namely defense.  The upcoming fixture list is clearly in their favor.  With matches against Swansea, Middlesbrough, and Sunderland on the upcoming list, it has to make your transfer button sweat.  And by sweat, I mean of the jar of pickles in the sun kind of sweat.  For those in the R&B tip and wanted me to reference Keith Sweat, I am sorry this week’s lede is all about the Gunners.  Take a look at the player for Arsenal’s defense of note and regular playing time, Hector Bellerin is the most owned, most expensive and yet the second highest scorer.  The person of value here I believe is that of Laurent Koscielny.  Him of the £.3 variety cheaper, half of the ownership and nearly two more points per game average.  Plus he has more of a chance to score a goal, as he has already nodded in two on the year’s campaign.  So those in the sleepy variety will have Bellerin on their team, those on the come up will look at the Arsenal center man as the key piece and most likely highest priced addition to their squad in the next coming game wees.  So with Week 8 upon all of us, let’s look at some other coming up players that I think could make a transfer darling for your squads.  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 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 6 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

So now that we all have our eyes set on some transfer prizes and the midweek cup games have come to a head we can rank the players for Week 6.  I gave it one extra day for injuries and such to show themselves, but alas, rankings you still have.  I went over the transfer ideas in Tuesday of who to set your eyes on this week, it includes Kun because he is being brought back in at an incredible rate.  On the same measure, the Ibra love is falling off as he is becoming a casualty for the Aguero train.  It is the easiest move to make with the closest salary.  Sometimes a quick fix isn’t always the best solution but it will work for the short term.  So rankings wise as always it’s form. mixed with fixture, mixed with me drinking some of grandpa’s cough syrup.  So in theory it is a lot of sense and a whole bunch of non-sense.  I completely kidd, as I would never steer anyone astray as this game is meant to be enjoyable and fun.  Plus I think we all get participation trophies and will definitely go for ice cream regardless of result.  So sit back get comfy and enjoy the Week 6 all position rankings for the FPL. Cheers!
