Yeah, it’s a day late.  I wanted to process the City game and get a decent read on the Everton/Palace match to give you the most accurate, in-depth and nonsensical post about transfers possible.  A great percentage of used your wildcard last week, some are using it this week, and the rest are for later.  Now that I have covered the obvious of before, current and later, how does everyone like the soup? Don’t be silly, there is no soup because it’s all about the transfer jargon for the big double week upcoming.  With a massive 10 teams on the double tilt this week’s transfer ideas, rankings, and other useful insight I may offer is going to be all about those fellas.  Quantity wins out, especially this week with a lot better double options  than the baby DGW in Week 33.  So with everyone going after the same scraps from a fantasy perspective, lets look at some deeper options that may be under-owner, a sneaky play, or just someone I have a hunch on.  Here’s the Week 34 transfer ideas.  Cheers!

I know the temptation is there this week, and next to adding the likes of anyone not named Lukaku from from Everton, but whom?  After watching the both offense and defense, they don’t look anything like I would invest or bank on from a fantasy perspective.  The usual measuring stick is if I would let them take my sister out for a date.  They fail the eye test from a protective brother type thing, and this is fantasy.  I love my sister to death but with 6 weeks to go, I will run over people who get in my way of fantasy goodies.  Now take what I just said and think on it twice as hard but instead of Everton insert Crystal Palace players.  If one is bad, the other is meh squared.  Neither team, besides the almost-must rostering of Romelu Lukaku, has an intriguing option that I would want to add for the long haul let alone the double week. I don’t wear glasses, so maybe my rose colored glasses that are fictional yet functional see something else that someone else does.  I mean that does happen from time to time.  So for other people who are looking at a weekly option, a double week delight, or a decent set-up for the remaining weeks, here are the Transfer Tuesday weekly transfer ideas for the FPL Week 33…

I am getting antsy with anticipation.  It’s like the countdown to fantasy boxing day from a DGW speak.  Since we last gossiped, Everton now has back-to-back doubles.  Ginger and Bobby broke-up and I got a pedicure foot treatment with the little fish that eat the dry skin from my feet.  Do not knock it until you try it.  I was good with it until I brought my fishing pole and went in search of dinner.  So with the Everton/Palace double-in game during Week 33, it kinda puts a rush job on the prep work for the Week 34 and 37 doubles.  Personally, I think the Toffees are getting more respect with the double/double because they actually have rosterable fantasy options where as the Eagles are looking nuzzled in their nest and Pardew needs a battle cry to awaken them.  So if you are building for Week 34, don’t change too much in the way of Week 33’s games because we are all bringing in Lukaku anyways.  You are not clever, you are a lemming.  Here are some non-lemming options to consider for this week, with an eye on next week and the week there after.  Be patient transfer warriors, wait ’til the International matches are over before making a hasty move. Cheers!

So with all the blanks (minus Man United/West Ham in Week 35) over with, we can start the journey to building a sustainable roster for the double weeks.  Which we still don’t have an exact determination of who will play whom and when.  Shakes fist at the schedule makers!  Add in the fact that this week is a busy week for European football and the transfer ideas get lessened until we hear and see the injury and lineups throughout the week…  Nonetheless, I am happy to be returning to a full slate of games and opening up the playing field to a vast array of players instead of limited options from just three teams.  Only problem I see this week is the teams that you should be maxing out, Spurs and Leicester, have decent options, but you are already at the limit for rostered players for those teams.  Kinda stinks and is really unfair because I for one am itching for some new names on my teams, but if they keep producing, I am going to be tight lipped and shut up though.  So most people should only have one transfer at their disposal this week, as there was a huge scramble to just get a usable team.  Transfer wisely with that singular one, oh, and guess what?  I have some ideas to bring in for your team for this week.  It’s transfer Tuesday, Razzball style.

Here is the synopsis for this week’s transfer ideas… First, look at your team, do you have 11 starting and playable options? If yes, skip the next three sentences and go get me a donut.  If no, go make a transfer or two, or three.  Anything more than two, you have to use your wildcard.  This late in the season, taking minus eight points is a stub on your toe in the dark after a night of drinking type-moment.  For those that skipped, welcome back.  This week is simple, you need only one extra body on the bench this week, ONLY ONE.  The rest can sit and rot in all their blanking greatness.  No need to transfer out the stars: Barkley, Payet, Firmino, Lukaku if you own only two of them.  Sit there and watch them get zeroes. In four weeks when they or all have double-game weeks, you will be two players closer to having a formidable team. As a reminder, there are only 12 teams playing this week.  So for those in need of transfer ideas, targets, or are just around because you enjoy my writing, here are the transfer targets for the week of the blank… number 30.

The word “blank” in this context could mean two things:  First is the common one… it means nothing.  The second is that it could just be a space holder for another word or phrase.  There is no complete wrong answer here because yes there are several teams on the blank in two weeks and setting up for that without cashing in your W.C. is damn near impossible.  Which leads you to the placeholder version of it.   Now in order to keep it clean grab, the closest throw pillow that you may currently own and scream whatever you want into it.  Could be in frustration over the past week.  Could be because of your current situation, or it could be looking forward and you realize that you have six guys on blank next week.  See what I did there?  Well have no fear, the season doesn’t hing on this week, nor next, but it does help to be fully roster prepped for the next two weeks in order to build a usable roster for Week 30.  Be smart, transfer only players that are not on a bye for week 30 and that ultimately won’t hurt you until Week 34 when you are most likely using your wildcard.  Here are this weeks choices for transfer in the FPL.  Cheers!

This stretch of games is like an O.C.D. paradise. Games two days off, then repeat.  Three sets of games in no time flat is fun as hell if you love the fantasy footie game.  Thing with this week’s games are there are a few games that feature really good teams that are struggling to give good fantasy returns (Man City and Leicester), and then there are a few matches that are fitting clubs that are mutually beneficial fantasy-wise that are seeming to sap the fantasy thunder (Everton/West Ham and Spurs/Arsenal).  So no worries, we trudge along and rank guys accordingly and see how they fit with your roster.  Remember that next week is a worse blank than Week 27 so transfer smart and don’t get all greedy.  There are eight teams off next week, with 23 players owned over 10% on those teams.  That is a huge obstacle to overcome, so don’t compound that by bringing in another guy that you will need to remedy with next week.  As always good luck and cheers!

Listen, I get the whole… “ooooh my neighbors just got a new kitten phenomenon” that’s going on in the city of Manchester.  I guarantee by this time tomorrow he is old news and they are onto the sanitation strike, or the problem with the drinking water.  But in all seriousness, Marcus Rashford has burst on the scene so well that I was looking for the saloon style doors to swing open and smack people in the fantasy roster.  The fact that there is a huge “daddy wants” factor with an affordable price tag of the opening price for strikers of £4.5, but please… is now the time to risk it all on a teenager?  If this was Vegas and you were at the Peppermint Rhino and an 18 year old caught your eye, would you risk the wife, kids, house on it?  Okay, bad example.  You get the gist of what I am trying to parlay it here though I hope. He is the bee’s pajamas right now, and everyone is sucking at the fantasy teet of what he could do and the differential that he could offer.  My best piece of expert fantasy advice is if the top-500 teams start gambling like this, they will not be in the top-500 for very long.  Okay, diatribe over.  We all admire the new shiny goal scoring penny that us staring us in the face, but you get to the finish line with proven commodities. So with all the rash ideas and such tumbling around, why not stick around for some other transfer ideas for Week 28 of the FPL?  Remember to keep building up that roster for the major blank in Week 30.  Cheers!

I can dig that we are 26 games deep into the season.  I can also understand if the remaining 12 weeks are just another thing for ya.  I am here to tell ya that it’s different.  The final 12 weeks, with what is going to happen to the scheduling, is going to be fun.  Fun in a way that people are going to be scrambling all over the place to actually put out a complete roster.  It starts this week with four teams blanking, then in three weeks eight teams come up with a “zero” week.  That is almost an impossible thing to tackle by not using your wildcard.  Using your wildcard for that week would be an extreme panic move.  You want to save that WC for the weeks prior to the double weeks, which are going to be a bevy of fantasy points there for the taking.  The benefit of you keeping your wildcard is that you can set yourself up for both double game weeks in one fell swoop. I will get into that when the scheduling comes out, and we have a better grip on who plays what and when.  So for now let’s tackle Week 27 transfer targets for the FPL.  Here are some ideas of guys on form or under-owned for the upcoming week and moving forward…

This week you should go to the local hardware store.  Purchase some rope, tape, and possibly some zip-ties.  This is to prevent you from going crazy this week and using up one or even two of your banked transfers. I am speaking as if you know better than to use your wildcard this week, but I just needed to say that out loud so we are on the same page.   Okay, so next week there are four teams on a bye basically.  Liverpool, Man City, Newcastle, and Everton are the teams that we are talking about, just in case you have been living in a closet and scared of the sun.  So look at your team, go ahead, I’ll wait, count the number of players that you currently roster from those teams.  If the number is greater than four, you are in trouble.  If it is just four, you aren’t castrated yet.  That’s is why you are by no circumstance to use a transfer this week. If just three or less then maintain the same breathing rate, you can afford to use one transfer this week, but only for a non-player of those four teams. I don’t care how tempting Bobby Firmino looks, he will be there in full flavor in three weeks.  So now that I have laid out a nice plan of attack, here are some transfer in ideas for the FPL Week of 26.  Cheers!
