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!

It feels like the week before black Friday around holiday time.  All these useful pieces staring us in the face and we are firmly looking beyond that to when we can get two for one sales.  So with only 10 shopping days left til the double transferring smart rather than with your gut is the best strategy.  Now that the possibility exists of a Mo Salah injury it throws a monkey wrench in to the best laid plans of FPL men.  Do you stick or twist?  As we wait for the news to come out the rankings here reflect a tentative idea of who will do well this week,  the not so well aren’t listed because we are only interested in the cream of the crop.  The Derby weekend is here so get ready for some preemptive double game week love as we jump two feet into game week 33 of the FPL.  Cheers!

Another week of formidable FPL play in the books, and yet another straight ole boring plain week.  Boring from the standpoint of that it doesn’t have a double or blank.  Regardless of lack of anything, the strategy to get that ultimate starting XI or team total for 15 for the chip play is still there.  The down home stretch makes or breaks your mini league and the use of the chips is what catches you up or let’s you fall by the wayside.  With the teams known for the double after this week, the teams that don’t double and don’t blank in week 35 are the the thought process this week.  Looking to the double, but beyond it is important.  Having as many assets as possible for that double is ultimate, but what if you leave yourself blowing in the wind for week 35 when 8 teams blank.  Most or some of them are the teams that are being relied upon in week 34’s DGW.  So with United, Chelsea, Bournemouth, Spurs, Brighton, Huddersfield, Leicester and Southampton all minus a fixture in week 35.  Is going all out for the DGW or for playing after a more viable strategy.  I hope by now that you have one, because deciding on the fly will be your downfall. So with week 33 firmly in the visions of all of us let’s look at some of the transfer targets for this week and beyond.  Cheers!
