The Ides of March are coming! It’s a reckoning for all those who will show a steely resolve and pick only the finest captain choices, and all others who will fail in their pursuit of FPL glory. At the end of the day, your weekly captaincy choice does play a huge difference in your weekly status. Nailing the pick each and every week would be splendid, but the reality is you’re not gonna get it every time, so just trust your gut when picking the right players and hope for some consistent point doublings over the length of the season.

Here are zee captain picks for GW 29:

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

Oh the weather outside is FPL frightful. Dum, de dum delightful. The weather is definitely a blind pimple on the face of the FPL heading into this weekend’s slate of fixtures. Hell it is going to affect today’s Arsenal/City clash.  So if and a big if that they do play rankings are the pivot point to a transfer strategy.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

I know what you are saying and you are 100% correct, week 28 isn’t over yet.  I wanted to give the good folks of the FPL community who are currently freezing from the blistery winter weather and possibility of snow across the pond something to do.  Granted that is if they still have power, zombies aren’t attacking and Gary neville is yelling at everyone for walking around. With three games of significance to play one the Man City/Arsenal week 38 clash, the Swansea/ Sheff Wednesday affair and the Spurs replay in the FA Cup that will significantly change the atmosphere of the future FPL universe in the transfer market I still wanna touch on some things that are buzzing around my head in terms of FPL transfers. Having all the right answers is a futile game in trying to figure out the who’s and what’s from week to week in prospering in FPL. Every expert is a guesser, some just more glorified than the other.  Don’t believe me go look at the ownership rates of every goal scorer from last week and stop after Kane, Salah, Firmino and Shaqiri.   How many of the pundits could have predicted that mess to all be a prosperous lot.  None is the answer, and with limited transfers at a time looking smart is a far second to being handsome. So with that I will take my looks over being correct.  So here are my gorgeous picks to click this week in the FPL week 29 transfer window.  Cheers!

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.

Anyway, here are my captain picks for GW 28.

You hear that drumming in  the distance? That is the upcoming schedule.  Rearing its slow and steady beat and invading your every thought.  Every transfer decision you make from here on out should be with the biggest four weeks on your mind. With 2 blank weeks and 2 doubles in the remainder of the calender, rankings mean only so much to the clearer bigger picture.  Think long and hard about your preparation for those weeks as every player thank blanks that you may own or transfer in reverberates to gameweeks 34, 35 and 37.  So be smart and slow the pace of play a bit and instead of hitting confirm transfer think again about it.  get yourself on a plan of attack for the final 11 weeks of play.  Chips in hand, wildcards to play.  Stack them up against players in your mini league and dominate.  But for those playing it by the seat of their pants here are the week 28 rankings for the FPL.  Good luck and Cheers!

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!

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.
