The things associated with this week all have curious ties to the number seven …and Liverpool. So if Liverpool is Snow White than the other dudes this week are the feeble dwarfs. Seventh seal, Seven deadly sins, Un-Magnificent seven… you get the point yet? Good cause I was running out of cliche things with 7 in them. The talk around the FPL universe is whether or not it is advisable to using the free hit chp in order to have a fighting roster of 11 players. With another blank game week, with better teams to pick and choose from, my answer would be no. Plus with two doubles on the horizon saving all your chips til a later date seems like the best advice I can give. Rankings, is the other thing I can do for ya. Mow your lawn maybe. It is all ‘Pool all week this week as they face a Watford squad that is going to give up some goals whether they like it or not. So from a only have to choose from 8 teams approach, get to 8 players and concentrate on teh front 5-7 players as the clean sheet looks bleak in most cases. Here are the week 31 blank week rankings for FPL, happy hunting on transfers. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
You hear that drumming in the distance? That is the upcoming schedule. Rearing its slow and steady beat and invading your every thought. Every transfer decision you make from here on out should be with the biggest four weeks on your mind. With 2 blank weeks and 2 doubles in the remainder of the calender, rankings mean only so much to the clearer bigger picture. Think long and hard about your preparation for those weeks as every player thank blanks that you may own or transfer in reverberates to gameweeks 34, 35 and 37. So be smart and slow the pace of play a bit and instead of hitting confirm transfer think again about it. get yourself on a plan of attack for the final 11 weeks of play. Chips in hand, wildcards to play. Stack them up against players in your mini league and dominate. But for those playing it by the seat of their pants here are the week 28 rankings for the FPL. Good luck and Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
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!Please, blog, may I have some more?
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!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As good as the offensive big wigs look this week, and we will get to them tomorrow. The stoutest of the stout, the purveyors of the clean, the dukes of denial are looking very good this week. As I stated yesterday the cream is definitely separating themselves from the rest of the field and that doesn’t change on the defensive end of the ball either. With great match-ups on paper for the better defensive teams, like City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and United the rankings this week will be littered with the likes of those teams integral players. Better teams better chances for CS results as a probability scale dictates usually. Don’t get me wrong gambling is good when you don’t have the funds to be a defensive laden team with assets from the top 6 team all at your disposal. This unfortunately isn’t the case in salary capped leagues where funds become limited, so i will mix in some of my favorite low investment players into the rankings here and there, but for the most part it takes money to earn the CS points this week. Here are the week 24 FPL keeps and defender rankings. Good luck and Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The beloved clean sheet. Coveted by all, ascertained by so few. It is an allusive beast that lures you in with great match-ups and decent form and leaves you sobbing after relying on Bournemouth or Stoke. I wish there was so anger algorithm for how late teams concede and complete take a poop on your fantasy week. fear not though, last week’s misery is this week’s hope. As we head down the December trail of busy fixtures hunting points and lots of them. The differentials and good run of fixtures are there for keepers and defense and week 16 is the beginning of some good runs, and unfortunately the end of some others. So shift your funds around, get some in-form players and head in to the week with confidence knowing that what you have is the best you can do. This pep talk is over, so here are the week 16 rankings for the FPL for keepers and defense. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
What just happened? Did I get on some weird mystery machine that went back in time to when useless goals were all the rage? What’s next, Sam Allardyce will be back managing a scuppering club too I bet…. oh wait. So Week 14 came and went and the prominent highlights were people we don’t own and rotations that only lasted 70 minutes. Chelsea, Liverpool, and to some degree, Man City pulled the ookey-dokey on us this week in the rushed schedule which saw Mo Salah, Eden hazard, and basically prove that Pep is a liar with not wanting to play Aguero/Jesus together all happen. I usually err on the side of caution when it comes to transfers and bringing people in with rotation risks, but the first two names I mentioned are the easy solution. The City thing is fairly visible that it will be sane to come in for one of Aguero or Jesus. Other than that, I am on tilt with the returns of some teams, Arsenal scored 5 versus a down-trodden Terrier squad and the rest of the EPL basically is what we think they are. I am skimming not wanting to get into a long diatribe about every team in the Premier as it relates to fantasy all in the warm up, you gotta stick around til after the bump for some transfer ideas. If I put out on the first date what kind of expert would I be. A bad slutty one! So now that the wooing process is over stick around for some transfer goodies for the FPL Week 15. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another week, another Champions league worry fest. Also another one off week where the schedule flips into an International break abyss and we are left to stare and think about our rosters for far too long. Causing angst and transfer tremors of epic proportions. Fear not though as it is only Thursday and the day after the UCL games and the day of the Europa’s where we see two more EPl team pit their metals against foreign hordes. It does but it doesn’t affect the Premier League because who knows what will happen until after the games happen. Guessing is for the noobs, we here at Razzbol are the experts. Self proclaimed experts of course. So with week 11 on the docket officially now we can look at the games to come, where almost every team that makes fantasy gravy gets it’s feet wet on the Sunday slate. But stars don’t win championships, it’s the differentials that do. So buck up and transfer wisely as we are thumbs, balls and minds deep into week 11. here are the rankings for keepers and Defenders fro week 11. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Rankings make the world go round. They dictate the flow and structure for almost every fantasy sport…except the direct ramifications of the official game. Rankings are great but when the relate to the beautiful game of footie they don’t always translate completely because of the limits that exist in with the transfers system in place. I get it, I type this stuff every week and it is to be used as a guide for just what I said, gauging transfers. These ranks are all based on match-ups, form and a whole bunch of common sense. Mixed with a little of nonsense that spews from my cranium. FPL rankings are hard because line-ups lock an hour before the first game kicks off so the exact science of this is strictly guess work, and now that the 11 teams that played midweek in the Carabao Cup have played we can get a more ideal look at the possibilities that will exist in the realm of fantasy FPL for Week 10. So enjoy the ranks, use them, trade them with your friends (if you have any) and best of luck. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
With the Carabao Cup, or whatever it is being called today, being played this week and 11 teams in the Premier being involved in it, I figured waiting a day isn’t such a bad idea. I mean, when does waiting to see the overall details come back to haunt you? Maybe with a cheating ex-girlfriend, but other than that, I am clueless. She got what she will deserve, and no one will ever find her body… I am kidding. So moving on to Week 10 of the FPL, we either own Harry Kane or we do not. Unfortunately, there is no middle road, like joint custody. If you look back on most or all the high scoring FPL teams, he was an intricate part and moving forward I think he is a better rotation-less risk than the City duo. So if you are chasing the ever fruitful Forward teet, lean in that direction. But that is not what this Transfer post is all about, we want the here and now… and the unheralded. The best part is you get the best of me saying it like it is about guys who either have a great match-up, good form, or I am just batty about. So enjoy the transfer ideas for Week 10 of the FPL.
