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.)

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?

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!

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!

Welcome back several friends and the guy who doesn’t take no for an answer.  The FPl is back this week with fervert news and scheduling…finally, for the DGW. We all knew it was coming, but were a little leery on the who’s and where’s.  No worry here we are three weeks before the double in full set-up mode.  Whether you are using your assortment of alloted transfers every week, or using those valuable chips that you have been hoarding like that guy on Hoarding.  It makes sense just a slice bit redundant.   So this week you are either setting up for the DGW or you are setting up for the DGW, theres zero in between ground.  the double teams for week 34 are Burnley, Chelsea, Leicester, Bournemouth, Brighton, Man United, Spurs and Southampton. I know that you knew them already but healthy reminders are the preemptive set-up to the whole entire writing thing.  The best thing about this week in comparison to the last double week is that there are actually more than one team with reliable FPL options that we can bank on.  Also, just because the DGW is in three weeks the next week thereafter is a blank week for a few teams than that is followed up to game weeks later by another blank. Cafune went over strategy yesterday, so now we are firmly entrenched in week 32 transfers.  So sit back relax, grab some cool ranch Doritos and listen up.  Cheers!

A funny thing happened on the way to this week’s title, I went to school growing up with an Eve Blank. If I could make that stuff up i would but unfortunately tis true. We used sh are the big pack of 64 crayons you know the one with the built in sharpener.  we were high rolling in the ‘burbs of Jersey. I wonder where she is now…hmmm.  Not that it matters because Eve won’t help you prepare for the week 31 blank fest and only 8 games on the slate.  i will.  So if you have a multi-pack of crayons you and I can be friends.  If not shove off.  This week is pivotal.  It is a time where you look at your team and say “direction, I am going that way.”  For better or worse this course of action will dictate how you maneuver through the chip minefield and when to use that all so valuable second WC.  I am not driving the bus to use it in week, 34, 355 or 37, because I just don’t know everyone’s team that well or what you have already used etc, etc.  But if you wanna ask i am always here for ya.  Transfers this week should be made with the course of action in place that you know when you are wildcarding, using the your free hit and the bench boost.  Multiple double gameweeks to strive for and to use every available asset that you have at your disposal.  So be smart, transfer with your head and for god sake stop thinking about Evelyn Blank. Good luck and Cheers!
