Similar to taking a piss straight into a headwind, there is futility in guessing which player will rise above the rest week-in and week-out. Rankings are damn near impossible to completely nail, and the top four forwards from GW29 were no exception: Aubameyang, Tosun, Deeney and King (aka Aubametosu and The Deeney Kings). Of them, Aubayameng was the highest owned at 4.4%. That’s the type of odds FPL stacks you against in any given week, and these rankings are based as much on fixtures as they are gut feel. Week 30 ends our sense of normal that we’ve mostly had since the Christmas fixtures, and if you’ve been following along at home then you’ve heard of FPL’s upcoming booze snooze on St. Paddy’s Day, which will provide us a wee-smattering of Premier Leauge with just 4 fixtures. Now week 30’s rankings do not factor in the blank, but it should be taken into consideration for transfer purposes as we focus on finding players that shore up a hole for this week and the following. Try looking at a cheap starter that could help shift funds in GW 31 to your missing higher priced item from Liverpool or Everton. Taking a chance on a lesser-owned, cheaper asset with starting credentials in GW31 carries an automatic 2 point “bonus” points you otherwise wouldn’t have. So go get some free FPL currency and cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s your sometimes weekly, mostly when I’m not lazy, update for Gameweek 29. If you haven’t already prepared for GW31’s upcoming slate of 4 games, well then at least spend your next two free transfers towards getting a player or two that might be useful to you from GW31 until you wildcard. If you’ve already wild carded, then it’s best you just ignore bringing in “non-blanking” players this week or the next, as you need to keep your team strong for the Double Game Weeks coming up shortly after. The two scheduled DGWs are where huge point hauls and mini-league swings can happen, as opposed to a short-slated GW31. Don’t despair if you’ve fallen behind, as the most exciting part of the FPL season is nearly upon us!Please, blog, may I have some more?
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.

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?
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?
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?
This is shaping up to be a week with no clear captain favorite, but certainly necessary to consider all of your options (however few they may actually be). Spurs vs United removes your Harold, Lukaku and Pogba/Son/Eriksen/Sanchez/Martial or any of their teammates from the logical reality that ManU will probably try to park a bus to beat Spurs. Arsenal and Chelsea seem like too much a mess to bother to put the captain band on their boys, although with them playing Swansea and Bournemouth respectively, it could end up being an Ozil or Alonso that steals the day. The players below are the most clear-cut choices for captaincy, but we can all agree that both my pedigree and decision-making for this season is average at best. So here’s to celebrating what little I know and what even less remains of my gut feel…cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
A longer week breeds boredom. Well boredom for some, being overly aggressive in transfer activity for others. With the Carabao cup semi-finals now concluded we head into a FA Cup filled weekend. Which should mean for the common folk that we should relax the transfer fingers and worry about injury concerns and injuries that have already occurred. Gone are Marko, Willian and Lanzini, making a dent in the moderately priced midfielder market when it looked so comfy and stout. For the 90 plus thousand that have transfered in Willian to date..sorry lads/lasses. Injuries happen, hell even with the transfer window still open the flux of starting XI is still happening. Lower level clubs making lower level moves to stay adrift in the top league. Some have value, some have better value now that they are actually going to be getting playing time. With the window still ajar and some big names still on the rumor treadmill, hold fast. Especially in draft formats as those coveted waiver priorities will rear their dominant heads if big names come FPL bound. So with a weekend of cup fixtures and transfer excitement why not get fome FPL transfer love on a thursday. Happy transferring. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s your sometimes weekly, mostly when I’m not too exhausted from work update for Gameweek 24. Feel free to leave questions, comments and criticisms below…Please, blog, may I have some more?
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!Please, blog, may I have some more?
