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.

Away: Man City (6) – Home: Watford (0)

Man City is flying through the early portion of the prem – through 5 games, 16 goals scored and only 2 against (1 by Everton and 1 by Bournemouth). Aguero dominated the attack with a hat trick, Jesus netted a goal, Otamendi burried a header and Sterling scored on a late penalty. So many points to miss out on when you don’t have any of these players, which begs the question, why don’t we have any of these players? Clearly it’s time to reevaluate who you like the most between Jesus and Aguero, allocate funds and bring one of them – my advice would be to trust your gut and don’t ever look back, as they will both return points and hopping back and forth will make you lose out on consistent returns, which they will provide throughout the season as long as that attacking midfield and defense remain healthy.

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!

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!

Every year, the hype wagon and subtle love affair for the promoted teams players happens.  It happens, sorry not sorry, but it does.  They come in with their Championship league stats all shiny and got the fantasy world by the tail.  I get it, they did great things in a league that is below the Premier.  For the official game, they have an additional appeal because we have seen it in the past that they can rise to be a useful cheap piece.  Deeney years ago, Andre Gray after that, and now we are hit with the influx of familiar names that have played in the Premier and are now back… at a discount now.  The fantasy attributes that Brighton, Huddersfield, and Newcastle boast have some usefulness as salary fillers or just a plain dump in some cases.  Because the four-buck defender still happens. So today we are focusing on some of the better fantasy options from the promoted squads and how they can aide in your quest to build the perfect XI or XV if we are being completely honest.  Because those four bench spots still matter when you are comprising your roster with a 100m budget.  So enjoy the kind words about this years crop of promoted players, you may or may not hear their names again this year so get a pad and pencil ready or since we have technology earmark this page with a cool bookmark that you got from the school library.  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, and then, for a bonus, we show you our genius lineups for the week.  Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply… basic.  We used to do this in tandem, but since I am flying solo while Ralph explores all the tallest mountains in the world, you are stuck with my and only my opine.  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 33 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

Stay put, because this is where the stretch run starts.  It is the goods, the potatoes, and meat portion of any fantasy meal.  We can’t ever get enough of the buffet of goodies that these guys give us.  We clean our proverbial plates and go back for seconds if we could, but we can only really field one squad.  Oh well.  So while you are concentrating on just one, don’t forget what I said about my distaste in the doubles for Everton and Crystal Palace.  I don’t hate them as much for the middies and forwards, but I wouldn’t break the WC bank and throw all your cookies in their basket.  I know that was like three different expressions in one sentence, but I am feeling wacky.  Working on minimal amounts of sleep and need a drink.  So to keep it brief let’s look at the FPL rank 33 rankings for the guys that go for goal scoring glory more frequent then yesterdays clean sheet warriors.  Good luck and cheers!

I know the temptation is there this week, and next to adding the likes of anyone not named Lukaku from from Everton, but whom?  After watching the both offense and defense, they don’t look anything like I would invest or bank on from a fantasy perspective.  The usual measuring stick is if I would let them take my sister out for a date.  They fail the eye test from a protective brother type thing, and this is fantasy.  I love my sister to death but with 6 weeks to go, I will run over people who get in my way of fantasy goodies.  Now take what I just said and think on it twice as hard but instead of Everton insert Crystal Palace players.  If one is bad, the other is meh squared.  Neither team, besides the almost-must rostering of Romelu Lukaku, has an intriguing option that I would want to add for the long haul let alone the double week. I don’t wear glasses, so maybe my rose colored glasses that are fictional yet functional see something else that someone else does.  I mean that does happen from time to time.  So for other people who are looking at a weekly option, a double week delight, or a decent set-up for the remaining weeks, here are the Transfer Tuesday weekly transfer ideas for the FPL Week 33…

Listen, I can say there are thousands upon thousands of options this week.  I would then have to apologize to the tens of you for being a freaking liar.  The mantra this week should be: getting to 11.  That is all you need.  With all of five fixtures to choose from and a limited transfer base to choose from, it can either be hard or it will be a lot of minus points taken.  There will be a lot of template-type teams this week, as the options are so limited.  It isn’t even funny.  The rankings which you are about to peruse are extremley truncated.  It is not done because I am being lazy or just don’t care.  If there were more options, I would list them and gladly say go ahead and start this lad, but there just isn’t.   Blame me, it is all my fault that this blank disaster happens now, right after the week we all scored so well.  So without further adieu, here are the abbreviated, yet pungent FPL rankings for the week of 30.  Cheers!

The word “blank” in this context could mean two things:  First is the common one… it means nothing.  The second is that it could just be a space holder for another word or phrase.  There is no complete wrong answer here because yes there are several teams on the blank in two weeks and setting up for that without cashing in your W.C. is damn near impossible.  Which leads you to the placeholder version of it.   Now in order to keep it clean grab, the closest throw pillow that you may currently own and scream whatever you want into it.  Could be in frustration over the past week.  Could be because of your current situation, or it could be looking forward and you realize that you have six guys on blank next week.  See what I did there?  Well have no fear, the season doesn’t hing on this week, nor next, but it does help to be fully roster prepped for the next two weeks in order to build a usable roster for Week 30.  Be smart, transfer only players that are not on a bye for week 30 and that ultimately won’t hurt you until Week 34 when you are most likely using your wildcard.  Here are this weeks choices for transfer in the FPL.  Cheers!
