Well my friends that time of the year is here. The time where better judgment and guessing when and how to use your chips. There is no right/wrong way to use them and anyone who says you are doing it wrong is a doo-doo head. Tell ’em Smokey said so. Game week 31 is the elite of the elite, and by elite I mean Liverpool and 7 other teams that are a fantasy cesspool of blah. But unfortunately you can only use the utensils that are on the table, so we will call them the sorta-magnificent eight. Eight is also a special number for roster building. It is the number you should shoot for if you don’t have or want to use your chips. getting to eight non-blanking players allows you to hide injured stars (Aguero and Kane) and one other player that the investment value for your team makes the most sense. Having three players that don’t even take pitch in week 31 isn’t the worst thing after burying your investment pieces on the bench. the answer to that last part is tw f0old. How much value is someone going to get by fielding 11 players, which is basically 8 because we all will have three liverpool players? Zero. the match-ups and teams are not there from a team building to risk using a free-hit and using a wildcard with this lot is just not in the cards. Keep it simple. Get to 8 and call it a day. So here are the best three options of the seven other teams this week. Liverpool is completely up to your discretion. Cheers and good luck on transfers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
First off, breathe. Secondly we have four weeks to figure everything out. There is no need to go full on Chernobyl and build your team to be a complete entity now for week 31. No one wants a team constructed of three Liverpool players and than a miss mosh of West Brom, Watford and the likes for the next three weeks before they all do battle in week 31. Just in case you are behind on the times there are only 8 teams scheduled for week 31. After that is a mis-mosh of doubles and chip set-ups. But one week at a time. Start by looking at your least valuable pieces, both form and price, and transfer them out for the 1 of 8 teams that compete in week 31. Those teams are Liverpool, Watford, West Brom, Huddersfield, Everton, Stoke, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. Add in the possibilities of a Spurs/Newcastle fixture after the FA Cup replay happens against Spurs and Rochdale. So it is a muddled up mess of blahness and anticipation right now. Take on or two transfers at a time and work your way up your teams chart of bad to good players leading up to week 31. It is only week 28 though so start slow, and I will be here to hold your hands with guidance the rest of the way. Call me the fantasy crossing guard or something like that. So here are some ideas for now that will help later and some that will just help now. Happy transferring and good luck. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
You heard it right sports fans. No more international nonsense type stuff until Week 31. Which if you have a calendar handy, isn’t until the middle of March. Hooray for concentrating on the here and now for the FPL and the foreseeable future. Also, on the funnier side of scheduling is that the first 11 game weeks took 87 days to complete, the next 11 will be done in a mere 47 days. It is going to become a rush delivery, fantasy style. The funny thing about the days is that regardless of 87 or 47, we still don’t have any clear staple team. One that has so many intrical parts that we have to invest in to keep up with the so called Jonses’ of the FPL universe. Questions still remain on the right in form triple of strikers, who and how many Spurs, Liverpool, or City midfielders we should roster and defensively where the differentials are grander, we maybe have one possibly two all-day, everyday options. So the next 10-11 weeks that take us to the New Year’s day games will be a competitive balance of luck and skill. So here are some post Int’l break transfer ideas based on the transfer ideas going down in the FPL universe, plus some common sense or totally nonsensical ones too. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
So do you like Fantasy Sports? Do you like soccer? Have you ever made a drunken bar bet and then been asked to not only justify your unjustifiable hubris, and then asked to actually come through and perform your favorite Nicki Minaj song in public? Well, two outta three ain’t bad. … So, if you’re still with me, let’s see how a Novice fairs playing EPL fantasy soccer this season. The pricing value scale will be as follows:
- Buy. Just like with every new generation of the iPhone, you’re willing to wait in line to overnight to get this. Full price be damned, this is worth it.
- Grab. Lightning deal online. Get it now, the price won’t get better and it’s a good investment.
- Avoid. This is that van that pulls up next to you at the gas station and says, ”Hey, wanna buy some speakers?” The answer is always no. Please, blog, may I have some more?
