Beautiful friends the end. Except this is soccer and not about some psychological thing where he has an edipus complex. Now that we cleared the air on that song and pointed out the difference between the two let’s move forward shall we. Good! This week is pretty cut and dry, you either are bringing in Arsenal players or shifting around Arsenal players or you are bringing in one Sunderland player. That’s it folks, it’s like going to an ice cream store and all they serve is vanilla. I am not the maker of rain I just sell the best umbrella. So enjoy the second to last transfer info post of the year, I know sad right.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Now that my Blues have achieved victory this year. I ask, is it better to continue to roll with the talent or go with the lesser bunch of ragamuffins that are fighting for something in the league. Yea I used ragamuffins. Because with the top 4 basically set, barring some tremendous collapse by someone, is it better to surf the teams with some piss and vinegar this week to get some points for the good. The good is you here FYI. So for this week I am looking at teams from the bottom 8 of the table to bring in one at a time, which pisses off an OCD Noah and his boat. The fight for the non-bottom three is more fun for me to watch right now then hoping for a clean sheet or stupid fantasy consistency from a fantasy stud that EVERY one owns. That is soooo boring. So stick around see who I think might be a sheepish transfer this week as we have 3 to go.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The title says it all. We want a return to normalcy round here. That means not sleeping with cousins unless you can legitimately prove they are 3 times removed from family lineage. That week took a lot out of not only me but a lot of owners. It came and went fairly unheralded…so far. With 2 games left to play and some seasons riding on some good outputs from some key players, I figured it was never too early to look at the waiver wire and find some transfer gems for this week. You know the guys that will fill in for all the parts you brought in for the double week, as we slowly dissect our rosters one by one of useless “bring in” guys to get our roster to the A team for the last 4 games. Have no fear though, week 37 is right around the corner and we can start lumping all the Gunners and Black Cats into our squads. But for now let’s take a look at this week’s list of favorable or guys that I see as having an impact sooner rather than later.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The title says it all this week. Load your rosters to the high hell with the double week guys. There’s no other way around it. You wanna score in triple digits you need at least 5 guys with a 2 game set. You have to do it. The high week this week might push 150 and the average is going to be in the hondo range, and that’s not John Wayne. So with Chelsea, Liverpool, Hull and Leicester all on the double, you can if you are so daring have a complete roster of all double week players. That is if you hoard your WC like some guy on an intervention show on the Discovery Network. At best you should have 3 of either Chelsea or Liverpool players gracing your roster and at minimum 6 total from all teams playing the Ernie Banks special. So without further adieu let’s take a peek at what I would bring in for the week of 34.Please, blog, may I have some more?
With the abbreviated schedule this week, its all about setting yourself up. Whether you were a miser and kept your wild card or if you take it one at a time like dudes at a “soup kitchen”. Either way this week is about do you have enough to field a roster, can you help yourself for week 34 where 4 clubs have a double week. Granted only 2 of those teams have real usable fantasy options, but just imagine this, a roster of 6 Chelsea and Liverpool players and the best of the rest from other squads. Sounds pretty good to me, well it’s basically what alot of teams have already as they should be maxing out on Chelsea and Liverpool players. Well as much as salary restraints allow naturally. But let’s stay in the here and now because Spring has sprung, it gives us more reason to pay attention to all those joggers and actually seeing skin from people. Let’s see what’s going down with the transfer ideas/targets for the week of Larry Bird.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is by far my second funnest post of the week. It’s all about spoken word and speculation. Sorta like listening to guys spit daily fantasy advice, and you telling yourself that guy sounds legit. I bet he totally doesn’t have a special seat on his mom’s old couch in the basement. The point I am saying is you can’t trust everyone, hell I am untrustworthy, I always leave the toilet seat up and never, ever prevent forest fires. I am just Smokey. Plain and simple. You can listen to dudes we affectionately call the Cumulus Nimbus or the Kool Aid guy. But that will only get you in a pickle. No one want’s that. So this week is the wake after the double but before the tsunami. Next week is the abyss we call roster damnation with 4 clubs on hiatus and filling a roster without getting that dreaded minus 4 points starts this week. Whether you like to hear that or not it’s the truth. The rest of the season if you wanna really play starts this week, and here’s your first prep of week 32. It’s Transfer Tuesday, go tell your friends.Please, blog, may I have some more?
When does one week feel like 2 whole weeks. I will tell ya its the International House of Breaks, or IHOB. It’s half as boring as the regular pancake joint, but won’t leave you looking for guiltless options. It’s a pancake house, you knew why you went there…gorge. Eat all the chocolate chip pancakes and other festive treats that they serve. You deserve it for being patient and having to wait basically two weeks for league footie. I have been chomping at the bit to get back into the swing of things and start the interesting stretch of games we have coming up. Some weeks theres double games for multiple teams, like this one with QPR and Villa, or the upcoming weeks where for 3-4 weeks in a row it’s all about strategy. That strategy starts here with Transfer Tuesday, so sit back put on your elastic waisted pants and gorge on the info for this week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After re-watching the Chelsea match, Sadio Mane was easily the best forward option, or player in the fray up top for the Saints against a better Blues defence. He now gets to turn his wheels against a Burnley squad that is living high off the hog after their defeat of City. Pounce, now he isn’t a for every one pick but look at his next three fixtures after this one (@Everton, vs. Hull and @Stoke). Pretty interesting that you wouldn’t be wasting a transfer for a one week filler. I mean what is Pelle going to do that he already hasn’t in the last 13 weeks, besides look slow lazy and uninterested. I heard he already bought a house in a town called anywhere’s but Southampton. Interesting place, shame that a Champions League team will actually invest in a player that has looked blah for 3 months. He will get to be in the tourney while the team that was headed there and one he could have lead there won’t. Mane is the most interesting man in a stagnant system which could use a lightning bolt from Senegal.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ahhh back to the normal week. No more scrunched schedules. No more teachers dirty looks. No more relying on baseball posts to cheer me up, although half of them make zero to no sense and just use senseless data written by guys who wouldn’t know an actual baseball situation if it fell out of the sky, danced and then wiggled slightly. So week 29 is here and there are less than 10 week to go. If you haven’t formulated a strategy I have a new one go to the hardware store buy a ball peen hammer and smash both of your pinky fingers. No but in all seriousness before you go all Casino on your hands stick around for another transfer ideas of some lads that may be sneaky plays for the week that not many others in your chase for glory aren’t rostering. As always good luck, and roster correctly or you will die a fast death like that scene in Indiana Jones with the whole goblet of god type stuff.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well the point of listing anyone not on Spurs or QPR to transfer in this week is probably pointless. We only get so many free transfers a week and last week some of us had to scramble to form a roster so no extra transfers for free. So with Spurs and the R’s face double game weeks for the first time this year and well if you aren’t adding Spurs players this week then you need to be hit in the head with a pipe wrench and thrown in the meadows. It’s simple this week from the transfer standpoint, you need a guy to get you 5 points in 2 games for the minus 4 points to not sting as much. We are greedy though, we want to get double digit games from all players with 2 games. While I don’t love the options that QPR has based on their 2 tough match-ups, as the face Arsenal and Spurs at home. Which is sometimes good because at Loftus they are a different team. So my best advice is to use it as a swerve move to capture points from the leaders or if you already own the maximum 3 Tottenham players. So have at my list of Fantasy Premier League transfers ideas, it’s littered with fun stuff and stickers for the kids.Please, blog, may I have some more?
