Short weeks breathe different to me.  This week is completely no different.  Take a look at the match-ups they will stream, and then go a different direction.  If you were ever into zagging when everyone else zigs, this is the week.  With only four weeks remaining, I think you owe it to yourself to be a little different.  You have to be different.  There are such a lack of usable options that will cause all to be cautiously dumb.  That, my friends, is a bad thing.  We get one free transfer to express ourselves.  So go in a completely obtuse way this week.  Look at the Southampton game, because they are playing Villa.  But also look at the Villa squad, because they are playing S’ton and no one is looking in that direction.  If they do bad, so what? You tried something different and most likely got the minimum points.  Who is to say that the guy you roster wouldn’t have gotten just two points or for that matter completely pull a Lukaku.  I think I am turning that into a thing by the way, I mean, everyone has seen the movie Kingpin or I’m assuming you have, so they say Munsoned.  FPL players don’t get Lukaku’d.  Don’t be a lemming be an owner of a proud Fantasy Premier League team, one that you can put on your resume for that job application to Target.  Hell, put me down as a reference.  So here’s some transfer ideas for Week 35 of the FPL.  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, and then, for a bonus, we show you our genius lineups for the week.  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 34 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

This week’s rankings are condensed like soup.  Add the double week, and you have yourself a meal.  There are a ton of one game options that could make sense to try and squeeze out some value.  And by ton, I mean maybe a handful.  Doubling up this week is all the fad, its like the regular Oreo good, but with double the filling.  So twice the sugar, adrenaline, and hype of regular game weeks.  Whether you choose to maximize your roster via the WC or one of the chips at your disposal, you need to have a minimum of 8 DGW guys playing this week in order to keep up with the Jones’s.  United, Arsenal, and Liverpool look like the best three options to max out your roster to three from each squad.  Whether or not all players play both fixtures, well… I am not the Amazin’ Kreskin and not the best guesser on the planet, second best maybe. So transfer wisely, use good judgement and if you need to take a minus to get points back in your chase now is not the time to be all scared of the repercussions.  You will make it up just on minimal returns of a guy playing two games.  So the minus is not a deterrent for success this week and Doubles rule all!  Cheers!

Yeah, it’s a day late.  I wanted to process the City game and get a decent read on the Everton/Palace match to give you the most accurate, in-depth and nonsensical post about transfers possible.  A great percentage of used your wildcard last week, some are using it this week, and the rest are for later.  Now that I have covered the obvious of before, current and later, how does everyone like the soup? Don’t be silly, there is no soup because it’s all about the transfer jargon for the big double week upcoming.  With a massive 10 teams on the double tilt this week’s transfer ideas, rankings, and other useful insight I may offer is going to be all about those fellas.  Quantity wins out, especially this week with a lot better double options  than the baby DGW in Week 33.  So with everyone going after the same scraps from a fantasy perspective, lets look at some deeper options that may be under-owner, a sneaky play, or just someone I have a hunch on.  Here’s the Week 34 transfer ideas.  Cheers!

Stay put, because this is where the stretch run starts.  It is the goods, the potatoes, and meat portion of any fantasy meal.  We can’t ever get enough of the buffet of goodies that these guys give us.  We clean our proverbial plates and go back for seconds if we could, but we can only really field one squad.  Oh well.  So while you are concentrating on just one, don’t forget what I said about my distaste in the doubles for Everton and Crystal Palace.  I don’t hate them as much for the middies and forwards, but I wouldn’t break the WC bank and throw all your cookies in their basket.  I know that was like three different expressions in one sentence, but I am feeling wacky.  Working on minimal amounts of sleep and need a drink.  So to keep it brief let’s look at the FPL rank 33 rankings for the guys that go for goal scoring glory more frequent then yesterdays clean sheet warriors.  Good luck and cheers!

If you are reading this and Fantasy Footie is suddenly secondary, then welcome to the first week of the Fantasy Baseball season.  Our attention spans are stretched to the brink of sports tolerance.  Add in the fact that there are UCL and Europa games this week, and it’s on full on fantasy fleeck.  That is officially the first time that I have ever used that word in any typeof opinionated word document to be read by someone other than my Me-Ma.  So as I slide down the vocabulary hill and start looking up words for better usage in the Urban Dictionary, let’s dive into this weeks keeps and defenders of the clean.  The most poignant question I have for all the users at home is: is having two day past ripe potatoes better than having a beautiful potato with a nice cushy match-up?  Yes, I can dig that potatoes don’t have matches, hell, they don’t have fixtures.  But they do have eyes.  So use yours here and look at Everton and Palace’s form to date, or even over their last six…  Everton has two games where they scored three goals (vs. Villa and Stoke… whoopie) and then have given up seven goals in the other four.  Palace is winless in their last six and have conceded 12 goals in six.  Defensively or goalkeeper wise, this point of view is not a place to be dipping into the differential well.  Informative piece over, rankings to follow.  Good luck and cheers!

I know the temptation is there this week, and next to adding the likes of anyone not named Lukaku from from Everton, but whom?  After watching the both offense and defense, they don’t look anything like I would invest or bank on from a fantasy perspective.  The usual measuring stick is if I would let them take my sister out for a date.  They fail the eye test from a protective brother type thing, and this is fantasy.  I love my sister to death but with 6 weeks to go, I will run over people who get in my way of fantasy goodies.  Now take what I just said and think on it twice as hard but instead of Everton insert Crystal Palace players.  If one is bad, the other is meh squared.  Neither team, besides the almost-must rostering of Romelu Lukaku, has an intriguing option that I would want to add for the long haul let alone the double week. I don’t wear glasses, so maybe my rose colored glasses that are fictional yet functional see something else that someone else does.  I mean that does happen from time to time.  So for other people who are looking at a weekly option, a double week delight, or a decent set-up for the remaining weeks, here are the Transfer Tuesday weekly transfer ideas for the FPL Week 33…

The build-up is real.  The scoring and the reality isn’t.  Sorry if that shattered dozens of lives from nerd-land.  This is fantasy sports, but a reality when you win. You win by accumulating points, and dominating from week to week.  The upcoming weeks are the chase down in your mini leagues, so get off your a** and do something about that deficit and make some changes.  The double weeks will prove volumes for your point total.  Some are selling out and going full on WC and bench boost for it. Stratagize your roster, and you can score some points in the lead up to week 33,34 and 37.  Okay, Knute Rockne speech over or penthouse forum your choice. For now, we still have a game to play this week and those players still mean a hill of beans.  The middies and forwards aren’t where it’s won or lost but it’s where the differentials can be made up with some unsung heroes of the fantasy kingdom.  Rankings are here for the front seven or eight of your FPL Week 32 teams.  Enjoy and cheers!
