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…

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 32 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

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!

I think I may have said it before, at least three times that I know of this year, but you don’t score big week in and week out without a quality back-end.  J-lo does it, countless other bootylicious famous people are known for having a tidied up posterior. So take that frame of reference, stop surfing the web for pics, and translate that into a fantasy footie perspective.  I know it’s such a stretch but, stay with me.  Look back through your scores this week, show me one week where you scored in the top 50k scores and it wasn’t because you had at least two of the minimum four starters on defense/keepers that didn’t score six plus points.  This isn’t groundbreaking stuff, I usually write about the stuff that people look at and bypass because it’s so ordinary that they deem it as useless.  So take that into mind when building for the future double game weeks.  Because in reality that is what we are doing with the next five weeks leading up to the last double in Week 37.  Anyone added now should have liquid gain for you in the future, unless you have a plab to use your wildcard later than most.  So good luck planning for this week and the future but for the here and now let’s look at the rankings for Week 32 of the FPL.  Cheers!

I am getting antsy with anticipation.  It’s like the countdown to fantasy boxing day from a DGW speak.  Since we last gossiped, Everton now has back-to-back doubles.  Ginger and Bobby broke-up and I got a pedicure foot treatment with the little fish that eat the dry skin from my feet.  Do not knock it until you try it.  I was good with it until I brought my fishing pole and went in search of dinner.  So with the Everton/Palace double-in game during Week 33, it kinda puts a rush job on the prep work for the Week 34 and 37 doubles.  Personally, I think the Toffees are getting more respect with the double/double because they actually have rosterable fantasy options where as the Eagles are looking nuzzled in their nest and Pardew needs a battle cry to awaken them.  So if you are building for Week 34, don’t change too much in the way of Week 33’s games because we are all bringing in Lukaku anyways.  You are not clever, you are a lemming.  Here are some non-lemming options to consider for this week, with an eye on next week and the week there after.  Be patient transfer warriors, wait ’til the International matches are over before making a hasty move. Cheers!

Even in real life, a good set-up is sometimes a helpful tool.  Imagine a joke with just a punchline…  A date that ends in casual coitus…  Okay, one out of two examples is probably enough for your imagination to run a muck. So now that the double-game weeks have been announced and the plan is tentatively drawn out in your head in pencil, I have to ask, do rankings really matter right now?  That is an honest to goodness question, because the set up for the DGW is far more important than the here and now.  Unfortunately for you, and in all honesty me, I am doing the rankings for here and now.  Because the double is three weeks away still and we have plenty of time and wits to get our teams in tip top shape for then.  So now let’s concentrate on the match-ups for this week and turn our gaze to the prolific scorers and helpers of goals that propel your fantasy team from week to week.  Yes, I am talking about middies and forwards, not the Cadbury Bunny and his merry band of marshmallow peeps.  So here are the Week 31 FPL Rankings for the front seven fellas.  Cheers!

Thank the goodness of all that is holy.  We have a full week, and guess what?  The DGW fixtures have been released.  This doesn’t affect the rankings for Week 31.  It does make you transfer differently however, unless you still have your wildcard in your pocket, then it really only matters for planning for the second double.  Planning ahead is all the roar amongst millennials now.  As is wearing pants below the normal socially allowable height and driving on the whole.  Don’t know which is worse and more offensive to my eyes.  We all have our demons though, and mine currently is ranking the keepers and defenders for this upcoming week.  In 24 hours, it will then change form and move up the pitch to be completely consumed with the middies and strikers.  But for now, let’s just stay on course and figure out who ranks where in the eternal struggle for CS goodness.  So enjoy the finally expanded, after it seemed like forever with limited options, keepers and defense rankings for Week 31 of the FPL.  Cheers!

So with all the blanks (minus Man United/West Ham in Week 35) over with, we can start the journey to building a sustainable roster for the double weeks.  Which we still don’t have an exact determination of who will play whom and when.  Shakes fist at the schedule makers!  Add in the fact that this week is a busy week for European football and the transfer ideas get lessened until we hear and see the injury and lineups throughout the week…  Nonetheless, I am happy to be returning to a full slate of games and opening up the playing field to a vast array of players instead of limited options from just three teams.  Only problem I see this week is the teams that you should be maxing out, Spurs and Leicester, have decent options, but you are already at the limit for rostered players for those teams.  Kinda stinks and is really unfair because I for one am itching for some new names on my teams, but if they keep producing, I am going to be tight lipped and shut up though.  So most people should only have one transfer at their disposal this week, as there was a huge scramble to just get a usable team.  Transfer wisely with that singular one, oh, and guess what?  I have some ideas to bring in for your team for this week.  It’s transfer Tuesday, Razzball style.

Listen, I can say there are thousands upon thousands of options this week.  I would then have to apologize to the tens of you for being a freaking liar.  The mantra this week should be: getting to 11.  That is all you need.  With all of five fixtures to choose from and a limited transfer base to choose from, it can either be hard or it will be a lot of minus points taken.  There will be a lot of template-type teams this week, as the options are so limited.  It isn’t even funny.  The rankings which you are about to peruse are extremley truncated.  It is not done because I am being lazy or just don’t care.  If there were more options, I would list them and gladly say go ahead and start this lad, but there just isn’t.   Blame me, it is all my fault that this blank disaster happens now, right after the week we all scored so well.  So without further adieu, here are the abbreviated, yet pungent FPL rankings for the week of 30.  Cheers!
