Another week, another Champions league conundrum weighing over our ranking/transfer heads.  Have no fear though, as this is the end of UCL for a few weeks so we can now get down to brass tacks.  The FPL money is made with getting the right captain right, and getting lucky with your front 6,7, or even 8.  We all can’t be lucky every week that all our players strike gold and find the net, but it would be nice and fantastic if they did.  The December slate is a tough one to gauge for some middling teams and we can start to see what fixtures are ripe for the picking as we set up for the first DGW in Week 22.  Stay in the here and now though and use those transfers wisely, taking a -4 isn’t the end of the world if it is a move for a differential.  Don’t chase points on the most transferred in guys…stay the course basically.  To help you with your course here are the week 16 FPL rankings for Forwards and Midfielders.  Cheers!

  • You could re-arrange the top 3 and I would be completely cool with it.  These are mine tell me yours?
  • Much like yesterday with defense I feel that the affect will trickle down to the midfield with City and United.  Goals will be score, just don’t expect 5 total.
  • I wish I had the balls to roster Riyad for the upcoming few sets.  I don’t and his price isn’t ownable.
  • Watford is out of their little two game struggle fest and now can move on to greener pastures of matches.


  1. Harry Kane, Spurs
  2. Alvaro Morata, Chelsea
  3. Alexandre Lacazette, Arsenal
  4. Roberto Firmino, Liverpool
  5. Jamie Vardy, Leicester
  6. Sergio Aguero, Man City
  7. Romelu Lukaku, Man United
  8. Gabriel Jesus, Man City
  9. Salomon Rondon, West Brom
  10. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Everton
  11. Josh King, Bournemouth
  • Kane got the rest midweek and looks to freshen up his blanks with a nice matchup with Potters.  kane somehow has only 6 weeks without a blank but is in the top 2 for forward scoring.  the epitome of a two outcome hitter…wait that’s the wrong sport.
  • Like Harry, sergio got a respite on Wednesday.  making him the more valuable choice of the Jesus/Kun pairing.  Gabby still has value off the bench though.
  • Love me some DLC, I just hope Big Sam sees what we all see.
  • Moving forward for Bournemouth they have a tough road of fixtures ahead and I prefer King to Callum.
