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 30 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, we are back my friends after what seems like an endless array of breaks. No pun intended. Okay, well maybe slightly. The unfortunate thing already is the season ending injury to Seamus Coleman, who before breaking his leg for country, was the second highest scoring defender in the official game. Sucks, but that is what the one free transfer is for, or the minus 4, 8, or even 12 are for. So losing a staple defender isn’t the best news to start the FPL Week 30 with, but there is good news on the horizon. The DGW fixtures have sorta of been set for Week 34. With United, Boro, and Palace getting the doubles. Which if you are setting up for Week 37 and beyond, will be awfully delicious from a double up standpoint and wildcard usage rate. So my advice for now is build for this week with an eye on 34, but a binocular type view on Week 37 (unless you have your WC, because it don’t matter really). So best of luck filling the injury flagged spots on your rosters my lads. Comments, suggestions are always welcomed. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?

Well, the result that we all were waiting for, City over Huddersfield, now adds to an already strategic plan onto an already over-strategized plan. So the transfer ideas this week are all City front six players, and stay away from the defense because they aren’t the most stoic bunch of clean sheet artists. Or you can go with the cost savings group and invest in Stoke players who also double thanks to the City victory yesterday. Regardless of what you do to your team, taking a minus this week on players that double up is a good idea because even if they get bare minimum returns of two points, you break even just on minutes played. The payoff is if the actually do anything or actually play. So with the DGW in mind here are the rankings for Week 27 in the FPL. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another quick turn around and a slew of news, injuries, and new players on new teams. It is a great day to be alive when the rankings come out for the Premier League set for game week 24. Why, you may ask? Because I slave over a hot stove, day in and day out to stay on top of things so you don’t. And yes, if you wanna cheat and skip ahead by all means, Sergio Aguero is my top ranked forward after missing last game week with a niggle. Lot’s of games to love this week with Liverpool, Spurs and believe or not I like the fantasy output for Palace this week. Unfortunately, Chelsea face off against Arsenal and it takes some fantasy luster off the game, shucks. Oh well, on to Week 24 rankings. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is going to be the talk of all the inter-webs, so I might as well be a joiner in that department. The injury sit of Sergio led to Gabriel Jesus shining like a lighthouse this past game-week. Unfortunately the unknowns of basically everything are scary as hell. Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we all know, this week is passing us by with tons of cup games to turn the screw into our fantasy rosters. It’s not awesome. Not going to sugarcoat it one iota. Too many caveats can occur. Injuries and fatigue are the two that jump out. Food poisoning, attitude adjustment sickness, and if traveling by submarine, possibly the bends. I know the later three are a gaff and just for people that are of the like mind as me and hate the FA/EFL cups. I get this have to exist, doesn’t mean we have to like it. So the schedule this week was pushed back a bit to adjust to the Cup schedule, again being inconvenienced, and will start today as you are reading this. So welcome aboard another Transfer based post with ideas and fruition’s laden with smarts, wit and just general buffoonery. Also take not that these games this week will affect the upcoming weeks as some teams may be blanking in weeks 26 and 28. More un-fun things. So those sitting on your wildcard, continue to sit as it is going to be a fun next 6-8 weeks of fun once the double game weeks and blanks sort themselves out. Take a look around the inter-webs, lots of great research abounds about scheduling. I am here for the personal basis of players and when. So if I am not talking about it, then it might not have happened. Happy transferring and please, by all that is holy, wait until after Sunday’s FA cup fixtures before doing anything. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
When is being too offensive too offensive? This is fantasy, so anything goes really. I mean, the term fantasy and play goes as far as to include Magic the Gathering and D&D. So with loose terms come loose terminology. I read that on a fortune cookie the other day. So make fun of the machine that wrote that, not me. But is stacking your offense too much off a good thing? I say hell no! However, if you wanna spend your allotted money, be my guest. This week sees four of the top fantasy producing teams; Arsenal, United, Chelsea and Liverpool, all with favorable fixtures that are most certainly (or we hope) to give some fantasy goodness. So with thinking positive thoughts and some luck for all, here are the Week 22 Fantasy Premier League Rankings. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you are stuck trying to either hum the tune or figure out who in the heck I am jabbering about, then you also probably didn’t get a holiday greetings card. The return of Philippe Coutinho is just in time for Red’s fans, and more in time for fantasy owners and Sadio-mane boosters. One comes in, the other is playing with his feet on another continent. Philly returns after a seven week layoff, and to our approval a .6m cheaper price tag. Both fantastic for you as an 8.2 option rather than a 8.8 one. Where he fits into the hierarchy of midfielders for the week will be more determined as Klopp let’s out more info then that he is fit and practicing. So my advice in the matter is if you are cash poor and need the high scoring Liverpool midfielder affect then by all means grab him at a discount. I personally would wait a week and see how he is deployed and used with the other pieces on the pitch. I think a lot of people are disregarding how much Sadio Mane opens up that offense with his speed and skill. He is going to be missed and some shifting of tactics are sure to follow. Coutinho’s ownership currently is also a factor for him to be grabbed now for the opportunity, his ownership is stated at 14% on the official site, but in reality if we use all the tools of great internet sites it actually sits at 2% and rising slightly. So the differential is there. Price is there. Time and match fitness may not be. Besides one week isn’t going to break ya. Happy transferring this week, cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It isn’t a matter or who, it is a matter of how many. Indulging in a salary cap league is the hardest itch to scratch. It is almost like you have constant Alopecia rashes and are fiending for a longer stick to scratch your back. The strain of contention I am basically going over here is the striker combination or combinations. To me, it is a three-headed beast comprised of Zlatan, Diego, and Aguero. The latter of the two coming back from their retrospective suspensions and are now on the docket for ownership. The Aguero one has been gone over dozens of time by hundreds of fantasy experts. he is a must own player who offers what most can not. The problem now is that the other two, Zlatan and Diego, may be the best bang for your buck combo going. That is who I am advising you to go with… There is no wrong answer here because we all manage our own teams and have history with such and such a player and go by our own instincts. But the numbers and form are completely in Costa and Iobra’s favor, over bring in the 12.8 Kun. Goals in quantity are there and the run of games are in their favor. So go with the European duo instead of dipping into the warm waters of the South American. Now that the forwards are out of the way, let’s get to the other musings and stylings of the FPL transfer world.Please, blog, may I have some more?
