Promoted players/teams often are overlooked, but not because of value. Mostly because they aren’t that proven commodity, or don’t have that name power that others with similar price tags offer. For soothe, I shout from the balcony! Everyone wants to roster five or more guys over the 7.5 price tag. In order to do that, you have to cut corners… it’s like that special lunch from grade school. PB on white Wonder bread with no crust. So don’t be oft put by the promoted players because they have to play the same amount of games as everyone else, granted they are usually the unfavorable part of the match-up. They still will score goals, they will still get assists and they still will get clean sheets. So grab one, hell grab three, one from each team and fill out your roster and make mom and me proud. The likes of Hull, Burnley, and Middlesbrough have some retread options that have had previous success in the premier league and have done fairly well in the championship prior to their promotion. So let’s get in the Razzball spirit of things and look at some of the promoted players that could be a swoon to your opening day roster consideration. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
So after what appeared to be a week and forever of us waiting for the return of the game, it didn’t end up disappearing, it actually started again. All fit with new stats, a new skin, and some new looks but no real rule changes. Which is good, we all fear change. I have to change on a daily basis to my excessive sweat glands that pump out FPL and baseball knowledge all day, everyday. So here is what to expect out of the one man band here at Razzball FC this year. We have a crisp three weeks up until the season starts, so I will have positional breakdowns, good rotations to target for the early season schedule, and basic FPL fodder that only I can deliver. I will also be running a RCL similar FPL game on the official site. 93785-32556 is the code go and join up while I try and hit up the powers that be for prizes of a magnitude that would make others join. If not, just join up anyways and be a competitive footie. So as you roster and re-roster your team 200 ways to Sunday, stand at comfort that Smokey has your back and will be dropping posts usually on the daily up until the first games start on August 13th. So for now, lets get started shall we? Everyone loves a sleeper or a bargain, and I am no different. I feel that finding a bargain now to squeeze in your roster saves the day later for when you can add a big ticket item. So here are some of my favorite cheap items from some guys that were playing in the EPL last year that should outperform their value from day one. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is it folks. The whole magilla. The end of the road and the close to a spectacular season of fantasy soccer here at Razzball. I want to express my gratitude to all the readers, commentators and the powers that be at Razzball, a special shout to Jay, for giving me this opportunity to bring you quality advice from a fun approach in the Razzball tradition. So here we have the finale to the rankings for the 2015/2016 FPL season. I would say it’s now or never but that would be cliche and extremely too late. The best advice this week is don’t go crazy taking minuses, don’t make extreme gambles and go chalk with the rankings. The high priced guys are high priced for a reason and this week the match-ups are in your favor and if you own them good. Now go own more or as many as possible that can fit into your roster budget. So here are the rankings for the final week of the season, I hope you all win your mini leagues or achieve the highest overall rank to date. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The final transfer idea thread of the year is a tough one to translate via the typed word. If we were sitting in a pub, on your dime of course, we could converse for a good 8-10 minutes about what to do. But alas, all I have is my home row keys of fantasy goodness to guide you. This week is not a time to be cute and be all: “I am going to change the world with my transfers.” Because it is honestly too late. You want the most points possible. It is no different than any other week, just that you have to be a little different to do it. I am specifically talking about people playing for pride in climbing the ladder of overall standings, and the guys you are chasing in your mini leagues. This is the best advice I can give you, grab as many stars as you can, that may be different then the guy/girl you are trailing. That dynamite piece of fantasy analysis is brought to you by sleep deprivation and a steady supply of marshmallows. So with that your roster should consist of Alexis Sanchez, KDB, Kane, Kun and Payet. After that, the world is your oyster. All those names that I just mentioned have decent enough match-ups that the are sit proof and at this point in the season you have to play them. To fill in the blanks for your team let’s check out the transfer ideas I could see falling your way for week 38 in the FPL.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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. We used to do this in tandem, but since I am flying solo while Ralph explores all the tallest mountains in the world, you are stuck with my and only my opine. 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 37 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is it my friends. I know that I am being semi-presumptuous that we are mates, but for the sense of suspense, let’s just pretend that we are. And I promise to stop stalking you on social media. Fair? Yeah, I thought so, DM canceled. So week 37 is here and the differentials that exist are different than the previous week of doubles in 34. By differentials, I mean that the dispersion of talent is very broad-based here. There are a ton more lesser names to be rostered this week than the star power that previously existed in the double of days gone by. Transfer ideas this week, start and end with guys on doubles. End sentence. I know the Villa and Newcastle fixture is so tempting, but where does that leave you for next week when the Toons play the Spurs? All about the doubles. I just want to keep instilling that into your minds. Rankings this week reflect the doubles, as they should with only two weeks remaining. Two pieces of advice this week… First don’t be afraid of the minus, as it doesn’t hurt you as much as you think with guys on two games. Secondly, if you are rostering Kane, Sanchez, and Aguero, you need to get rid of one and only one as all three have favorable fixtures in week 38. So here is this week’s rankings. Good luck and cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The only moves you are allowed to make this week are ones that get you to the most DGW players as possible. I don’t want any back talk or guff mister/misses. You can go right to your room with no supper, or hell air for all I care. There are two weeks remaining in the season and if you are still holding any chips or cards up your sleeves, then… well, I don’t know what to tell ya. Week 37 is all about the chips and boosts and triple captains. It is also about the maximizing of your roster to have no less than 10 double guys. Regardless of what the point deduction is, you need to get 10. I will take nine if you are not chasing points in your mini league, but 10 seems like a nice round number. It gives 20 plus games for which to score, or not score with the way the rotations may unfold. Listen, I can sit here and tell you the real good reason to come out on Friday, but people seem to think it’s a great idea to write what I said three weeks ago today. Not everyone is fast on the upkeep, or original with the turn of phrase. But I digress, I have been here for years pumping out piles of knowledge and it doesn’t change from day to day. The transfer advice is no different. All original, often imitated never duplicated. Here are some transfer ideas for the double week 37 that you should probably use all, add two more and then throw in one for good luck…Please, blog, may I have some more?

The calm before the double week storm is never an easy decision making process. There are so many factors to figure out. Who plays whom? Who is in good form? Who is in a rotation? All good questions, that, unless you are privy to the managerial decision process you are at the mercy of guessing unfortunately. I, as a keen-witted and sharp as I may be, can only right so many times. Hell, I try to shoot for 50%, and I fail at that in most cases. Nonetheless I come every day, week in and week out to give you the ideas that many like me put out. It may not be precise but it is at least a guide for you to give the last decision process, your own opinion, too. So Week 36 has some really tasty matches for the top flight lads and then the rotation guys (Liverpool) rear there ugly heads. All we can do is hope and pray that we guess right, or avoid the situation all together and look for differentials elsewheres. So here’s Week 36 final rankings of the scorers and heartbreakers and shakers. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
To quote a movie that we have all heard, or have been forced to listen to if you have kids or nieces: “In the first time in forever” we have a non-double week, non-truncated week, and no blanks from anyone. My memory is bad as all get out, but it feels longer than a few weeks to me. So the week before the big double it is sorta like a moving week. You can’t really afford to bring in anyone that isn’t on a double for Week 37, but you can’t completely trust in some teams that have a double next week for this week to contribute. I am firmly looking at Chelsea, Norwich, and Everton. We have all been burned by the Toffees, and I, as your friend and local FPL expert, advise against all moves in that general direction. Even the other team in the Sae Town is iffy with rotations and the Europa’s still going on. So that leaves a whole sixteams with which to roster. Now you know why I am all on the Cats this week and next, because to me, they have shiner appeal, especially defensively than a lot of other clubs. Add in the fact that they are fighting relegation and boom, fantasy asset… So here are the back-enders for Week 36 of the FPL. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
