Week 36 comes rolling in the fantasy door like a kitten with soundproof shoes on.  Seriously it is so quiet in here and the noise is all surrounding the 2 goals that were conceded in another tournament that really don’t matter until Liverpool give up 3 more.  Run-on sentences are fun, especially when the point you wanna prove falls on deaf ‘Pudlian ears.  So moving on in the museum tour of rankings for the FPL week 36.  This is a severe set-up week, almost like an awful blind date setup by someone who doesn’t really know your personality.  You appreciate the fixtures but don’t really ever plan to call or text or use this people again because you are dating twins next week.  Twins!  And not of the Minnesota variety.  I always forget that not all the baseball jokes transfer correctly, but if you are into that sorta thing click on the baseball thing on monday’s and Friday’s as I continue my journey to the middle of popularity there.   So transfer wisely this week, only bring in players that have a double next week.  I mean it don’t be stupid.  Cheers!

As a Blues fan it pains me to type in a sentence that I am waiting for the Pudlians to determine the fantasy forecast of the FPL universe for the upcoming week 36.  But alas here we are 5-2 later.  Wondering is that enough for the commitment level needed to buy into a Liverpool side this week, or is it not enough to rest on your laurels and say I am rolling with the Joneses’ of the fantasy world and standing pat.  I wish I was more of a devout mind and had a simple answer to that question.  You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t.  the ownership and ownership levels on the Salah’s. Mane’s and insert third name Liverpool player are astronomical right now.  especially if you are chasing points.  but is the chase the thing that may help you in your endeavors.  I think it just may.  It brings into play what5 we touched a few weeks ago is the games remaining more valuable for less games given the known returns or gambling on he bonus games to be played at the questionable return.  Questions as long as the day is long my friends.  Many a fantasy pundit will climb the tree of knowledge saying they have the best umbrella for a rainy day, bit I am here to tell you taht they are simply guessing. And guessing is sometimes a legitimate FPL strategy.  so before you start to guess, let’s get some logic in your noggin head into the pivotal week 36 no blank/no double fixture week.  Transfer insight upcoming, strap up.  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 35 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)

Now that the double match week is just about kaput, we can get on with brass tax.  The blank week is the the thinking man’s week.  Anyone can pick players with two fixtures and get luck.  When supplies get limited it is where the rubber meets the road.  With only 12 teams to choose players from and some of those negated by awful matchups, cough Swansea…cough cough West Brom.  That leaves 10.  1 big FPL Indians to choose from.  Transfers this week on an individual basis are tough. So if you planned ahead and have that appropriate chips that replaces your entire team for just one week, well now is the time to employ that bad boy.  I wish I could say something more diplomatic and forthcoming about advise this week, but it is pretty obvious who you want.  Just be smart and use a differential or three if at all possible. Here are the rankings for the FPL in week .  Happy chipping, transferring or whatever mode of transportation you take to get to the endline this week.  Cheers!

The double game week isn’t even dead and buried yet, but most of us that were counting on it for resurrection are left at the prayer circle hoping for salvation.  The blank week of 35 is now upon us.  Not really healing the wounds of the current/past week, but nonetheless we battle on.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

Everyone remember that old Nintendo game, Double Dribble.  Well that is what the FPL is offering up this week the Doubles that are causing us to all dribble with drool.  The options are abundant, and set up nicely for chips…granted you have set yourself up that way. Rankings for double game weeks are fairly easy and I will explain my thinking on this process.  If a double game week player plays the minimum amount of minutes and gets the basic 2 point return (no clean sheet, no cards etc) he will get two games of that for a total of 4 points.  Stupid math explanations are awful i reading but stay with me.  The single gameweek player will get only 2 pints for just minimal returns in his single match.  So from a gambling standpoint would you rather have a player who plays two games to actually give you fantasy returns as compared to just one?  the answer is only the two match player.  The further you get down in the rankings the better the return odds for the star players but for the most part the two match player always wins.  it’s like old maid but with football boots and kits instead.  So here are the FPl rankings for matchweek 34, the week we have been pining for since we started to know that doubles existed.  Good luck and happy chipping and transferring. Cheers!

The elephant in the room.  The question that is firmly on everyone’s mind. It’s an easy one too.  Just look at your team and see that high scoring, 99% owned midfielder.  The one, the only, Mo Salah.  Now with the season only five weeks long, where does the seven come from?  It is easy actually.  That is the number of fixture that other FPL assets have as compared to the little ole 5 that Mo has.  The only tough pill to swallow is watching all that retained value get flushed down the toilet from all the gains that Salah has garnered to this point from when you bought him.  I say soooo what!  You don’t need it.  Going into a thumb wrestling battle with 20% more thumbs is a win my friends.  So with the double gameweek her and staring us clear in the mug the term for this week is there are no allegiances anymore on your team.  The template is gone.  the options are a cornucopia of abundance just one click away for you to delve into the depths of differentials.  The transfers of titulations.  You get the point. Be different this week, don’t go for the most popular guy, but if you are sans chips left transfer wise because 7 fixtures is better than 5.  Cheers!

For the first time in over 10 weeks, a decision must be made on who to captain in place of the recently knocked Mo Salah. GW33 is a great opportunity to take a chance on a player that your mini-league rival doesn’t have rostered and thereby giving you the best opportunity to make up points. Don’t be afraid to gamble, especially as a lot of managers have their eyes fixated on the double next week. This is a GW to really make up ground, as there are lots of juicy fixtures that should produce many many goals. Here are the captain picks for GW 33:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal – The Arsene Wenger experience host Southampton on Sunday, and the squad is flying high after beating CSKA Moscow 4-1 in Europa League. The best option in the Gunners attack is close relative and dedicated guzzler of the PF Chang sauce, PE Aubameyang! With 4 goals in his last 3 prem matches, Auba is in fantastic form and Southampton have not been good for quite some time. Arsenal always seem to run riot on any team outside of the top 6, and the bookies odds have Soton at a 14% chance of keeping a clean, which all points towards a likely gaggle of goals being shipped over the weekend. Gimme that PE Auba special sauce!
