We‚Äôre once again giving you our loves and hates for each week in a segment called ‚ÄúStart ‚ÄėEm and Sit ‚ÄėEm‚ÄĚ.¬† You should know the drill, but if you don‚Äôt, we pick one option from each position. ¬†Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply‚Ä¶ basic. ¬†It is more based on my feelings and gut approach for the week‚Äôs upcoming and changes from week-to-week. ¬†I look at match-ups and form to formulate my craziness. ¬†It‚Äôs 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‚Äôs¬†Fantasy Premier League Start ‚ÄėEm, Sit ‚ÄėEm, Week 15 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn‚Äôt.)Please, blog, may I have some more?
What just happened?¬† Did I get on some weird mystery machine that went back in time to when useless goals were all the rage?¬† What’s next, Sam Allardyce will be back managing a scuppering club too I bet…. oh wait.¬† So Week 14 came and went and the prominent highlights were people we don’t own and rotations that only lasted 70 minutes. Chelsea, Liverpool, and to some degree, Man City pulled the ookey-dokey on us this week in the rushed schedule which saw Mo Salah, Eden hazard, and basically prove that Pep is a liar with not wanting to play Aguero/Jesus together all happen. I usually err on the side of caution when it comes to transfers and bringing people in with rotation risks, but the first two names I mentioned are the easy solution.¬† The City thing is fairly visible that it will be sane to come in for one of Aguero or Jesus.¬† ¬†Other than that, I am on tilt with the returns of some teams, Arsenal scored 5 versus a down-trodden Terrier squad and the rest of the EPL basically is what we think they are.¬† I am skimming not wanting to get into a long diatribe about every team in the Premier as it relates to fantasy all in the warm up, you gotta stick around til after the bump for some transfer ideas.¬† If I put out on the first date what kind of expert would I be.¬† A bad slutty one!¬† So now that the wooing process is over stick around for some transfer goodies for the FPL Week 15.¬† Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?

With a two day turn around in between fixtures this week, it all leads to one thing: Bad decisions.¬† The time between games leads to rash decisions and remembering too much of what just happened.¬† It doesn’t allow for news to sink in.¬† It doesn’t allow for 2-3 drunk nights staring at the computer second-guessing the drunk transfer conundrums that are blurry right in front of our face on your FPL device of choice.¬† We all just saw the week that was and the thing that sticks out most to me is the amount of goals scored this past week compared to two weeks ago.¬† For those of you at home calculating, it was 22-32 respectively.¬† Ten goals is a good hump to get over with, while the scores this week for most are average to acceptable, it wasn’t that far off that people were braggadocios about a triple-digit week.¬† This game is about patience, until there is no more time to be patient. So exhibit as much of that trait this week before doing something stupid, drunk dialing your transfers in, and if you can help it, rest on your transfer laurels and bank it up.¬† ¬†For those needing a seeing-eye dog approach to transfers for the truncated week, here are the transfer ideas and targets for week 14 of the FPL.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Thanksgiving and all that jazz!

WOOOOOO! The fixture feast is upon us, we will try our best to provide you with excellent recommendations as we dash through 3 FPL game weeks in 1 Gregorian calendar week. Breath easy, don’t stress, and just remember that even your worst point total in this stretch will be gone and in the rearview mirror in the blink of an eye.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sorry for the late post today, I’ve been combatting the interwebz quite delicately since Friday night and as a result missed almost every Prem game this weekend (hurray for replays!)Please, blog, may I have some more?
The FPL season grows up so fast.¬† We still remember the courting process in the preseason when it’s: mom looked so good and was all good with her… feet.¬† Now that we are past the adolescent phase and they are basically thinking for themselves, we need to process the going’s on in the transfer universe.¬† Lot’s of stick or twist options.¬† Callum Wilson or Niasse?¬† The Pep news about using both Aguero and Jesus together as a conjoined twin of fantasy goodness.¬† A lot has happened in the four day span from game start to today.¬† Everyone has great ideas of how to rear a child,¬† I mean, it is so prominent in the news now.¬† So now I am flipping it and half-reversing it into a useful FPL standpoint for all of us to get to know.¬† So pull up another chair to the adult table as your FPL team is all grown up and ready to roll.¬† Here are the week 13 transfer takes and fakes for FPL.¬† Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As much as some fantasy premier league managers complain about how the game has changed season to season, one truth has remained steadfast: the right captain pick will one hundred percent make or break your gameweek score. My own personal record of picking correctly has been pretty piss-poor in 2017, but I keep reminding myself that you have to play the best choice with the information at hand and not beat yourself up too much for getting it wrong. I’m hoping to improve and see green arrows again, and if not, then I will ask for support from this week’s theme and everyone’s favorite household object, whiskey! Best of luck!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Injury and mystique.¬† Rotation and differentials.¬† That’s what the FPL does.¬† The attacking-type players that I am speaking of are becoming fewer and farther between as we get more nodded on with a template-type format for the front 8 players.¬† Yes, I said 8.¬† Because you have to roster 8.¬† Those two punts that you casually stroll out as Midfielders are dying as you walk in the door, so go to coat check with your Carroll’s and RLC’s.¬† The week 13-15 schedule is going to take a firm bite out of everyone’s lineups and no one is a tad bit nervous at all.¬† The fact of the matter is that the 3 games in eight days thing is a real conundrum.¬† Now add in the most rostered type players, who some have rotation issues.¬† Some are already injured… Sadio.¬† Then add in the battle ground of playing 3 fixtures in that 8 day period.¬† If you are picking up what I am spitting then you need to start figuring out those bench spots and think for the future instead of looking at how good one fixture looks for week 12.¬† So for the short-sighted… here are the week 12 FPL rankings for Middies and Forwards.¬† Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
I wish the FPl scoring system was more like Oprah.¬† You get a clean sheet!¬† You get a Clean Sheet! Yes, even you get a clean sheet.¬† Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way, that just having someone in attendence gets one.¬† It is done the old fashioned way and it is earned.¬† the clean sheet guessing game has been blowing up in our faces as of late as teams that look like tidy games have yielded results not so comforting to the point accumulation.¬† Best advice is don’t gamble.¬† they have gambling anonymous hotlines to help you in such affairs.¬† keep it simple gather the best guys at an affordable rate, even the cheapest options to a great defense, and rock out with that.¬† At worst you need three great/good defenseman.¬† I recommend having at least four with intrinsic value and then work from there.¬† take the gamble out of the equation and just follow the buzzards of the FPL universe, but don’t be a complete lemming.¬† Forge your own path to defensive greatness and look for differentials they are out there.¬† All you have to do is look.¬† here are the week 12 FPl rankings for keeps and D.¬† Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
