Not since the four horsemen of the apocalypse has the FPL universe been so turned upside down by a group since last week. The names aren’t as owned as they should be.  The names aren’t as popular as they should be either… But that will all end this week as their ownership is about to spike for all three.  Since I covered Junior and the Welsh Pirlo recently, I will focus on the Arsenal middie Theo Walcott.  His goal total and minutes over the last three seasons prior have not warranted anything special from a fantasy-usefulness perspective.  Last year’s 5 goals/3 assists in 1300 minutes played was good for a mere 85 points.  The year before that, 5 goals, 1 assist in 447 minutes good for 51.  The year before that? 5 goals, 5 assists in 860 minutes for a paltry 72 points.  The point I am getting at is the year before those is when he exploded for 14 goals, 13 assists, and a massive total of 194 points and a top-8 finish in the position that year.  He is on pace for roughly 20 goals and 10 assistsm which would push him into the elite performers of all time in the FPL.  I will even be so bold that for the bang for the buck, his current ownership and potential what the Gunners could score this year and his involvement he is arguably the most valuable Arsenal midfielder.  Take the 3 million in saving from Alexis and put that at a Forward spot and what do you get.  Roster diversity and huge differential play owned in less than half of what the roster stalwart in Sanchez.  So ponder that awhile and get back to me, in the mean time let’s look at some other roster moves and transfers for Week 8,  Cheers!

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.  It is more based on my feelings and gut approach for the week upcoming and changes from week-to-week.  I look at match-ups and form to formulate my craziness.  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 8 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

Was it just me, or was that international house of breaks really long?  For the avid fan it seemed like forever for the contrarian, I mean, who could care less about things footie, you probably aren’t reading this anyways. So nanny, nanny poo-poo.  So welcome back my friends and fellow followers of not only Razzball, but the FPL.  This week’s fixtures are an interesting bruit of the good versus bad, the semi-decent with the semi-decent, and then Sunderland and Stoke.  The Sunderland/Stoke fixture is an interesting one because I can’t think of one player I need to roster on any of the squads, which is weird, but pretty telling of how bad both teams have been defensively and offensively this year.  As always, the rankings are for this week only and factor in form, competition, and of course my own personal opinion.  Which is really the most important factor of them all.  So good luck on the transfers this week and hope the points are bountiful.  Cheers!

Like I said, it’s never a bad thing to have an investment value in an Arsenal player, namely defense.  The upcoming fixture list is clearly in their favor.  With matches against Swansea, Middlesbrough, and Sunderland on the upcoming list, it has to make your transfer button sweat.  And by sweat, I mean of the jar of pickles in the sun kind of sweat.  For those in the R&B tip and wanted me to reference Keith Sweat, I am sorry this week’s lede is all about the Gunners.  Take a look at the player for Arsenal’s defense of note and regular playing time, Hector Bellerin is the most owned, most expensive and yet the second highest scorer.  The person of value here I believe is that of Laurent Koscielny.  Him of the £.3 variety cheaper, half of the ownership and nearly two more points per game average.  Plus he has more of a chance to score a goal, as he has already nodded in two on the year’s campaign.  So those in the sleepy variety will have Bellerin on their team, those on the come up will look at the Arsenal center man as the key piece and most likely highest priced addition to their squad in the next coming game wees.  So with Week 8 upon all of us, let’s look at some other coming up players that I think could make a transfer darling for your squads.  Cheers!

Lots of games spread out all over the place.  Which, if you are a footie purist, is a fantastic way to go about killing time this week.  There are literally games every single day this week that had some form of EP team involved.  It started off with the Watford/Burnley affair to conclude Week 6, and it ends with the full Sunday slate of four games.  Add in the UCL games and the Europa games and we have had an action packed week of football.  Now that we have all that out of the way and all the games that sorta matter, or are complete history, we hit Week 7 full bore.  I gave everyone my transfer ideas for the week, and now we get to the meat and potatoes of the week, the rankings.  Some tasty match-ups with tons of fantasy ownership abound this week as we see some juggernauts of fantasy face off against one another.  So without further adieu and hullabaloo, lets get to the rankings for all positions in the FPL this week, the week of seven.  Cheers!

Sometimes life and technology get in the way of the genius, or semi-genius, that I convey to you on a weekly basis. It isn’t really genius as much as it is a hazy diatribe of words thrown together in some form of sense. But at the end, it all comes down to one common goal and that is the week at hand with Fantasy Premier League action. So with UCL games yesterday and today, plus with the impending week off for international duty, it suddenly becomes an interesting week as we streak toward Boxing Day. I only say Boxing Day because I use that as the half way post from a fantasy perspective, by no means look that far ahead when it comes to you building your roster. It is way too far away to comprehend, and involves me buying presents for everyone. So this post always starts off the FPL week and with all the info of the UCL injuries/non-injuries, Europa games, the week off upcoming and dealing with current injuries of star players (de Bruyne) we can finally get down to the brass tax of Week 6 in the Premier league. So here are some of my transfer ideas for the upcoming week and as always good luck. Cheers!

So now that we all have our eyes set on some transfer prizes and the midweek cup games have come to a head we can rank the players for Week 6.  I gave it one extra day for injuries and such to show themselves, but alas, rankings you still have.  I went over the transfer ideas in Tuesday of who to set your eyes on this week, it includes Kun because he is being brought back in at an incredible rate.  On the same measure, the Ibra love is falling off as he is becoming a casualty for the Aguero train.  It is the easiest move to make with the closest salary.  Sometimes a quick fix isn’t always the best solution but it will work for the short term.  So rankings wise as always it’s form. mixed with fixture, mixed with me drinking some of grandpa’s cough syrup.  So in theory it is a lot of sense and a whole bunch of non-sense.  I completely kidd, as I would never steer anyone astray as this game is meant to be enjoyable and fun.  Plus I think we all get participation trophies and will definitely go for ice cream regardless of result.  So sit back get comfy and enjoy the Week 6 all position rankings for the FPL. Cheers!

It is blatantly obvious this week who we should be targeting with our one free transfer…  If there was ever a week to take a minus to augment your FPL team, this is the week.  Sergio Aguero returns from banishment and his price is only going to rise from here.  Sacrifices have to be made unfortunately, but in the end game folks, it is worth it to have the best fantasy player in the game wearing your chain.  His price comes at the sacrifice of a second or third high priced midfielder most likely, but I am here to tell you that the midfield ranks are littered with moderate value plays up and down the FPL roster.  So say good bye to the Ozil’s, the Payet’s or the Hazard’s and make way for the difference maker that should be by next week the most owned player in the game.  It’s sorta funny, he was on the money before his ban and wasn’t the most owned but since he hasn’t been around for three weeks, we are all coveting his services.  The fantasy world is a strange and funny place.  Stick around for some other fantasy goodies and transfer ideas and targets after the bump.  Cheers!
