Well my friends that time of the year is here. The time where better judgment and guessing when and how to use your chips. There is no right/wrong way to use them and anyone who says you are doing it wrong is a doo-doo head. Tell 'em Smokey said so. Game week 31 is the elite of the elite, and by elite I mean Liverpool and 7 other teams that are a fantasy cesspool of blah. But unfortunately you can only use the utensils that are on the table, so we will call them the sorta-magnificent eight. Eight is also a special number for roster building. It is the number you should shoot for if you don't have or want to use your chips. getting to eight non-blanking players allows you to hide injured stars (Aguero and Kane) and one other player that the investment value for your team makes the most sense. Having three players that don't even take pitch in week 31 isn't the worst thing after burying your investment pieces on the bench. the answer to that last part is tw f0old. How much value is someone going to get by fielding 11 players, which is basically 8 because we all will have three liverpool players? Zero. the match-ups and teams are not there from a team building to risk using a free-hit and using a wildcard with this lot is just not in the cards. Keep it simple. Get to 8 and call it a day. So here are the best three options of the seven other teams this week. Liverpool is completely up to your discretion. Cheers and good luck on transfers.
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!
So we attack the long first break of the year with some Week 4 goodies. As we all know, the basis of any good team is a good defense. Without it, the goal would just be pummeled with shots and no goalie to stop them, making the score infinite. That for the sake of all that is holy doesn't actually happen, so much like reality, fantasy has to have keepers and defense. they round out every nutritious fantasy breakfast, and if played right can be more prosperous than some striker combinations. For the sake of this week's match-ups though, the teams with some normal fantasy usefulness are turned into just fodder. I am staring glaringly obviously at the City/Liverpool match which kicks of this week's action bright an early on Saturday morning. So to start the week yesterday was Transfer ideas and targets and now come the cavalcade of rankings for your viewing pleasure. Cheers!
Titles are the window to the articles soul. So unless you are incapable of seeing an actual soul it is fairly cut and dry here. Every week I look at the match-up, form and ownership of players, mix that with some common sense and a sprinkle of my own general "expertedness" and formulate a ranking system for you to use at home to help you build your FPL team from a week-to-week basis. Sounds pretty simple, I mean the hardest thing you have to do is argue with them and actually read it. So without further hullabaloo, here are the Week 3 rankings for the FPL, keepers and defense!
