Now that the double match week is just about kaput, we can get on with brass tax.  The blank week is the the thinking man’s week.  Anyone can pick players with two fixtures and get luck.  When supplies get limited it is where the rubber meets the road.  With only 12 teams to choose players from and some of those negated by awful matchups, cough Swansea…cough cough West Brom.  That leaves 10.  1 big FPL Indians to choose from.  Transfers this week on an individual basis are tough. So if you planned ahead and have that appropriate chips that replaces your entire team for just one week, well now is the time to employ that bad boy.  I wish I could say something more diplomatic and forthcoming about advise this week, but it is pretty obvious who you want.  Just be smart and use a differential or three if at all possible. Here are the rankings for the FPL in week .  Happy chipping, transferring or whatever mode of transportation you take to get to the endline this week.  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.  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 26 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)

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!

I wish there were no FA Cup games this week.  It would make rankings so much easier and cut and dry.  But no!  They had to exist on top of the swamp donkey Cup and push everything off by two days.  Rankings alone are hard enough.  Now mix in another game of fixtures, wrapped in a rotational brioche bun.  Also, there are major implications happening with the transfer window and the additions and subtractions that are sending ripple like affects through the FPL universe.  I don’t sound too bitter though, so there is at least that.  None the less we soldier on and bring to you the second part of this week’s rankings in the Middies and Forwards.  the stud muffins of the ball.  The guys who have to give the chicks away because they score all the goals and make the music in the FPL world.  I am partially kidding because half of them prolly can’t play an instrument.  so less rambling, more rankings.  Week 25’s sexy front 7’s are right after the bumb.  Good luck with transfers and enjoy watching the FA Cup.  Cheers!

This week’s fixtures have all the makings for one of two things.  It is either going to be an offensive juggernaut that produces lots of goal from all the usual suspects and teams.  Or it is a huge trap week and Liverpool and City all shat the bed and leave us holding our heads in despair.  Either way it will cause a panic at not only the disco, but through the transfer adds/drops for week 25.  My advice to that is, screw week 25.  We still have this week to play before we get all crazy britches about speculation of next week.  the only thing you should be looking forward to schedule wise is the DGW, blank weeks and who will or won’t.  So until than let us gaze upon the beautiful fixtures that are here now.  It almost appears that the top 6 teams are all playing the bottom six teams and all the middle teams are playing each other. It is a bizarre state of scheduling that from my expert lifeguard chair is going to be another fabulous week of fantasy output for all.  So here’s to you, your team and fingers-crossed for a bountiful week. Week 24 rankings for middies and forwards is right after the bump.  Cheers!

are more of the subtle yet deadly variety.  Why?  Because of the elite fixture that lies ahead this weekend between Liverpool and City.  It is tough to have tons of faith in two teams that are both FPL stalwarts like they are.  They basically neutralize each other on both ends of the pitch.  Liverpool has the best home defense is the league, and City just score anywhere.  City are a top 5 defensive team on the road and Liverpool score more at home.  It is like one hand washing the other this week.  All are still startable options this week as the money, ownership and transfer fees associated with making a one week move based on match-up just doesn’t make too much sense to this guy.  So be heady this week, don’t compound the DGW fiasco from last game week and make it worse and bury yourself further down the well.  So happy transferring this week and enjoy the next two weeks of transfer rumors.  Here are the week 23 rankings for the FPL. Cheers!

Rankings are the gift that either keeps on giving or ones that you quickly wanna re-gift.  Either way, I am giving you them with a fake smile on my face.  So you take that as a ehh, or a ehhhh.  Either way, I am content.  Week 19 attacking players got a bit of a shock as Morata got accumulation suspension in the Cup game and will miss.  This basically sends a ripple effect throughout all the rankings.  So if you are in the mood for those type of things keep reading and get to them.  Or you can stay here and listen to me wax poetic about almost nothing, as I have the innate ability to just lull you to sleep with nothing.  Screw that skip ahead, enjoy the rankings.  Happy Holidays to all and good luck this week.  Cheers!

X gonna give the GW 18 picks to ya, comon!!! WHAT!?

Top Dog: Lacazette, ARS – Pretty apparent that the week after Arsenal goes goalless versus a “reinvigorated” Hammers squad is an all too perfect a moment to drive Gooner fans mad. I forsee prolific offensive output from their £50m striker, as Waka Laca Flame played 8 minutes midweek, and Wenger will realize what a wanker he is after he plays a full 90 and bags a brace.

Another week, another Champions league conundrum weighing over our ranking/transfer heads.  Have no fear though, as this is the end of UCL for a few weeks so we can now get down to brass tacks.  The FPL money is made with getting the right captain right, and getting lucky with your front 6,7, or even 8.  We all can’t be lucky every week that all our players strike gold and find the net, but it would be nice and fantastic if they did.  The December slate is a tough one to gauge for some middling teams and we can start to see what fixtures are ripe for the picking as we set up for the first DGW in Week 22.  Stay in the here and now though and use those transfers wisely, taking a -4 isn’t the end of the world if it is a move for a differential.  Don’t chase points on the most transferred in guys…stay the course basically.  To help you with your course here are the week 16 FPL rankings for Forwards and Midfielders.  Cheers!
