First off, breathe. Secondly we have four weeks to figure everything out. There is no need to go full on Chernobyl and build your team to be a complete entity now for week 31. No one wants a team constructed of three Liverpool players and than a miss mosh of West Brom, Watford and the likes for the next three weeks before they all do battle in week 31. Just in case you are behind on the times there are only 8 teams scheduled for week 31. After that is a mis-mosh of doubles and chip set-ups. But one week at a time. Start by looking at your least valuable pieces, both form and price, and transfer them out for the 1 of 8 teams that compete in week 31. Those teams are Liverpool, Watford, West Brom, Huddersfield, Everton, Stoke, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. Add in the possibilities of a Spurs/Newcastle fixture after the FA Cup replay happens against Spurs and Rochdale. So it is a muddled up mess of blahness and anticipation right now. Take on or two transfers at a time and work your way up your teams chart of bad to good players leading up to week 31. It is only week 28 though so start slow, and I will be here to hold your hands with guidance the rest of the way. Call me the fantasy crossing guard or something like that. So here are some ideas for now that will help later and some that will just help now. Happy transferring and good luck. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s your sometimes weekly, mostly when I’m not lazy, update for Gameweek 27. We have FA matches over the next few days, so PLEAAAASE HOLD ON TO YOUR TRANSFERS! This is not the time of year to be rushing around and trying to save team value. Get information on players and blank schedules, react and make smart decisions with the players you decide to unload and who you replace them with.

Welcome to the world of mid-February Fantasy Premier League decisionmaking. Should it be any different than it’s been all year? Well, that depends. If you have been dragging ass and dropping red arrow after red arrow without any hope in sight, well than yeah, it’s time to be bold. If you are absoulely demolishing your mini-league(s), then stay the course and bring in quality transfers and captain the smartest choice possible each and every week. At the end of the day, your weekly captaincy choice does play a huge difference in your weekly status, but nailing the pick each and every week isn’t as big of a deal as picking the right players and having them serve up consistent point totals over the length of the season.
Without any more rambling, I’ve decided that this week to provide you a few choices at each “category” for captaincy. The thinking behind this is that I don’t know who the hell you have on your damned squad, so it means jack shit to you if my recommendation is nowhere to be found near your actual squad.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. It is more based on my feelings and gut approach for the week’s 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 27 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)Please, blog, may I have some more?
In a week built to attack the lower level squads, I am advising everyone to treat this as a one off week. Pick guys that help you now. Whether that be defensive matchups in your favor like Stoke or Swansea. Or even on the offensive end with Bournemouth and crazy as it may seem Brighton. The lower level clubs for me are getting a ton of my fantasy eye as we steam roll toward week 28 and the potential for fixture shuffle. The best part of that is that we will have a full two weeks before the next game week to totally overthink our teams and mess with it six ways til Sunday. So if you are having a debate in your head for transfers this week, pick the better matchup as you see it on paper. In form teams right now aren’t the ones you may expect. If at all possible to go into week 28 with a second free transfer by all means do it because Arsenal and City may be blanking there. One extra in the bank is better for the heart, mind and fantasy soul. Enjoy the week 27 fixtures and happy transferring. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Everyone is always looking for the long term solution, and making transfers for the her and now and future is always the way to go. Until now. With one week of fixtures than a week off, you need to worry about the here and forget about the then. After the week off the DGW and blank game weeks will be more blatantly obvious and you can attack them accordingly. So until the end of February you shouldn’t have to worry about anything but the rest of the year set-up. Whether that be using chips here, there and everywhere or making smart transfers to alleviate the hits that you may need to take to have a fully functional lineup to attack weeks 28-31. Lots of questions abound for this one week, Kane or not kane? Alonso is not a sure thing for the next week and when if any trust do we place in Arsenal moving forward. all vital questions that face this week and future fixtures and FPl gameplay. So with all the news swirling around in your head let’s take a look at the immediate impact transfer moves that you should be making now and worry about week 28 when the break is over.

It’s your sometimes weekly, mostly when I’m not lazy, update for Gameweek 26. Pardon the formatting of the tables and lack of commentary this week. Please feel free to leave questions, comments and criticisms below…Please, blog, may I have some more?

Short week means a robust, yet fast approach to FPL week 26. Condensed into two days, we give you all the same content, just at the expense of sleep and in all actuality some news that is ahead for the next game week of 26. With Riyad still MIA and the United and Chelsea attack’s stalling last week it should be an interesting week of gambling from a transfer perspective. Teams like Stoke and Bournemouth have decent upcoming fixtures and are the source of some really cheap and affordable differential type players. Don’t forget about the looming blank, and double game weeks that are on the horizon. If you have transfers that will help you now and later than look at the blank percentages for those upcoming weeks and invest wisely in those. The blanks and DGW are where we all make up differences in mini leagues if you are into that type of thing… you know actually competing. I am not one to really talk in that department as I continue to guess wrong on my transfers, but steer everyone who asks in the right. Cie la vie. Still having a blast reporting everything possible FPl for the Razzball universe. Good luck on the transfers and think for yourself not with the masses. 13 weeks too!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Everyone has done it, whether by yourself or with your lass, window shopping looks more fun than it actually is. Until those new shopping items start giving returns on your FPL investment. With the transfer window now shut, we have an array of new items to lay our filthy little paws on on this quick turn around of a week. Week 25 just ended and week 26 is in two days. Hurry, hurry, hurry! Grab your coupons and your affinity for the new shiny objects. With only two days in between shopping days for the next game week, the new toys will be front and center, and some more than others. While I can sit here and tell you to resist temptation and avoid the lemming approach to transferring in/outs. It is after all your team and you can do with as you please. So with the window shut and 13 weeks to go in the season we get down to the brass tax of what we see is what we get as far as player universe stands. Week 26 transfer ideas are here and they feature a lot of the newer names on the transfer market because that is what is firmly on the tip of everyone’s mind. Happy transferring and good luck.
