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?
Another week, another top 6 battle of dueling defenses. I hate it because the ownability of the Spurs and United players litter the FPL universe. No, you probably can’t sit them if you are rostering them, but you could brace yourself for a limited point return. As well as a smaller percentage of a return for a CS. Lots of mid to lower tabled teams face off against each other and I can see this as a week for teams to sure up their secondary and tertiary defenders. Look at Leicester’s pieces. Look at Newcastle. Look at Stoke. A few others plus those three have intrinsic value this week and for the next handful of fixtures. The prices on their most ownable commodities are basically minimal, but so is the expectations of fixture returns. They aren’t startable every week over the top 4-5 defensive teams but good to have in a pinch when roster’s start to blank, double and tougher clubs face off against each other. So without much further hoopla here are the rankings for Keepers and Defenders for the FPL week of 25. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As good as the offensive big wigs look this week, and we will get to them tomorrow. The stoutest of the stout, the purveyors of the clean, the dukes of denial are looking very good this week. As I stated yesterday the cream is definitely separating themselves from the rest of the field and that doesn’t change on the defensive end of the ball either. With great match-ups on paper for the better defensive teams, like City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and United the rankings this week will be littered with the likes of those teams integral players. Better teams better chances for CS results as a probability scale dictates usually. Don’t get me wrong gambling is good when you don’t have the funds to be a defensive laden team with assets from the top 6 team all at your disposal. This unfortunately isn’t the case in salary capped leagues where funds become limited, so i will mix in some of my favorite low investment players into the rankings here and there, but for the most part it takes money to earn the CS points this week. Here are the week 24 FPL keeps and defender rankings. Good luck and 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 23. 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?
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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Just that real sh*t…
- I’m El Presidente, I Run Tings: Coutinho, Liverpool – Young Philippe just dropped a hat trick on Spartak Moscow midweek on the heels of his Steve Nash reverse hatty versus Brighton, and threw in a goal for good measure. Side note: Steve Nash is a huuuuge footie fan, and actually looks tall as shit on the soccer pitch! Anyway, Sunday is the Merseyside derby, and while Everton are off two straight clean sheets, they are not going to stand a chance at Anfield. Philippe will wreck havoc on this Everton side that is mess at the back. Oh, and let’s not forget that Coutinho is just turning up so FC Barcelona will fork up whatever it takes to get him come July. Salah’s form has been nothing short of legendary, but Coutinho is feeling it. Meu Filho Phillipinho is the top captain pick for the week. Please, blog, may I have some more?
The beloved clean sheet. Coveted by all, ascertained by so few. It is an allusive beast that lures you in with great match-ups and decent form and leaves you sobbing after relying on Bournemouth or Stoke. I wish there was so anger algorithm for how late teams concede and complete take a poop on your fantasy week. fear not though, last week’s misery is this week’s hope. As we head down the December trail of busy fixtures hunting points and lots of them. The differentials and good run of fixtures are there for keepers and defense and week 16 is the beginning of some good runs, and unfortunately the end of some others. So shift your funds around, get some in-form players and head in to the week with confidence knowing that what you have is the best you can do. This pep talk is over, so here are the week 16 rankings for the FPL for keepers and defense. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Baby is all grown up. She is almost ready for the Christmas ball and now that we have our first scheduled DGW, we can see her off to some real down home scheduling dilemmas. The week that was saw the typical… City scored late to win. The bottom feeders kept feeding becoming starving lunatics, and the Teams under City are all starting to distance themselves from the also-rans. Transferring is a fickle beast. You can take it out for wine and chocolates but there is no guarantee that it calls you in two days to show you any kind of reward. We know that we did nothing wrong with our courting process, did our research only to be left staring at our phones with no benefits to show. We call this the “friendzone” of transfers. The most popular transfer every week since Week 3 has basically blanked every week except for when the Mo Salah explosion happened. Or as he is being touted on the auto-correct world of Twitter Mo Salad. Not every week is supposed to be rosy, these are still athletic competitions that are played by men. Sorta. So transferring wisely is great advice, but wait til the last possible moment and use all the tools in the shed to get a finite answer on your transfer-dom. In case you want some gingerly advice, here are some Week 16 transfer ideas for all y’all. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
