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 27 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)

In a week built to attack the lower level squads, I am advising everyone to treat this as a one off week.  Pick guys that help you now.  Whether that be defensive matchups in your favor like Stoke or Swansea.  Or even on the offensive end with Bournemouth and crazy as it may seem Brighton.  The lower level clubs for me are getting a ton of my fantasy eye as we steam roll toward week 28 and the potential for fixture shuffle.  The best part of that is that we will have a full two weeks before the next game week to totally overthink our teams and mess with it six ways til Sunday.  So if you are having a debate in your head for transfers this week, pick the better matchup as you see it on paper.  In form teams right now aren’t the ones you may expect.  If at all possible to go into week 28 with a second free transfer by all means do it because Arsenal and City may be blanking there.  One extra in the bank is better for the heart, mind and fantasy soul.  Enjoy the week 27 fixtures and happy transferring. Cheers!

Everyone is always looking for the long term solution, and making transfers for the her and now and future is always the way to go.  Until now.  With one week of fixtures than a week off, you need to worry about the here and forget about the then.  After the week off the DGW and blank game weeks will be more blatantly obvious and you can attack them accordingly.  So until the end of February you shouldn’t have to worry about anything but the rest of the year set-up.  Whether that be using chips here, there and everywhere or making smart transfers to alleviate the hits that you may need to take to have a fully functional lineup to attack weeks 28-31. Lots of questions abound for this one week, Kane or not kane?  Alonso is not a sure thing for the next week and when if any trust do we place in Arsenal moving forward.  all vital questions that face this week and future fixtures and FPl gameplay.  So with all the news swirling around in your head let’s take a look at the immediate impact transfer moves that you should be making now and worry about week 28 when the break is over.  Cheers!

Short week means a robust, yet fast approach to FPL week 26.  Condensed into two days, we give you all the same content, just at the expense of sleep and in all actuality some news that is ahead for the next game week of 26.  With Riyad still MIA and the United and Chelsea attack’s stalling last week it should be an interesting week of gambling from a transfer perspective.  Teams like Stoke and Bournemouth have decent upcoming fixtures and are the source of some really cheap and affordable differential type players. Don’t forget about the looming blank, and double game weeks that are on the horizon.  If you have transfers that will help you now and later than look at the blank percentages for those upcoming weeks and invest wisely in those.  The blanks and DGW are where we all make up differences in mini leagues if you are into that type of thing… you know actually competing.  I am not one to really talk in that department as I continue to guess wrong on my transfers, but steer everyone who asks in the right.  Cie la vie.  Still having a blast reporting everything possible FPl for the Razzball universe.  Good luck on the transfers and think for yourself not with the masses.  13 weeks too!

Everyone has done it, whether by yourself or with your lass, window shopping looks more fun than it actually is.  Until those new shopping items start giving returns on your FPL investment.  With the transfer window now shut, we have an array of new items to lay our filthy little paws on on this quick turn around of a week.  Week 25 just ended and week 26 is in two days.  Hurry, hurry, hurry!  Grab your coupons and your affinity for the new shiny objects.  With only two days in between shopping days for the next game week, the new toys will be front and center, and some more than others. While I can sit here and tell you to resist temptation and avoid the lemming approach to transferring in/outs. It is after all your team and you can do with as you please.  So with the window shut and 13 weeks to go in the season we get down to the brass tax of what we see is what we get as far as player universe stands.  Week 26 transfer ideas are here and they feature a lot of the newer names on the transfer market because that is what is firmly on the tip of everyone’s mind.  Happy transferring and good luck.  Cheers!

I wish there were no FA Cup games this week.  It would make rankings so much easier and cut and dry.  But no!  They had to exist on top of the swamp donkey Cup and push everything off by two days.  Rankings alone are hard enough.  Now mix in another game of fixtures, wrapped in a rotational brioche bun.  Also, there are major implications happening with the transfer window and the additions and subtractions that are sending ripple like affects through the FPL universe.  I don’t sound too bitter though, so there is at least that.  None the less we soldier on and bring to you the second part of this week’s rankings in the Middies and Forwards.  the stud muffins of the ball.  The guys who have to give the chicks away because they score all the goals and make the music in the FPL world.  I am partially kidding because half of them prolly can’t play an instrument.  so less rambling, more rankings.  Week 25’s sexy front 7’s are right after the bumb.  Good luck with transfers and enjoy watching the FA Cup.  Cheers!

Another week, another top 6 battle of dueling defenses.  I hate it because the ownability of the Spurs and United players litter the FPL universe.  No, you probably can’t sit them if you are rostering them, but you could brace yourself for a limited point return.  As well as a smaller percentage of a return for a CS.  Lots of mid to lower tabled teams face off against each other and I can see this as a week for teams to sure up their secondary and tertiary defenders.  Look at Leicester’s pieces.  Look at Newcastle.  Look at Stoke.  A few others plus those three have intrinsic value this week and for the next handful of fixtures.  The prices on their most ownable commodities are basically minimal, but so is the expectations of fixture returns.   They aren’t startable every week over the top 4-5 defensive teams but good to have in a pinch when roster’s start to blank, double and tougher clubs face off against each other.  So without much further hoopla here are the rankings for Keepers and Defenders for the FPL week of 25.  Cheers!

A longer week breeds boredom.  Well boredom for some, being overly aggressive in transfer activity for others.  With the Carabao cup semi-finals now concluded we head into a FA Cup filled weekend.  Which should mean for the common folk that we should relax the transfer fingers and worry about injury concerns and injuries that have already occurred.  Gone are Marko, Willian and Lanzini, making a dent in the moderately priced midfielder market when it looked so comfy and stout.  For the 90 plus thousand that have transfered in Willian to date..sorry lads/lasses.  Injuries happen, hell even with the transfer window still open the flux of starting XI is still happening.   Lower level clubs making lower level moves to stay adrift in the top league.  Some have value, some have better value now that they are actually going to be getting playing time.  With the window still ajar and some big names still on the rumor treadmill, hold fast.  Especially in draft formats as those coveted waiver priorities will rear their dominant heads if big names come FPL bound.  So with a weekend of cup fixtures and transfer excitement why not get fome FPL transfer love on a thursday. Happy transferring.  Cheers!
