Doubles rule the FPL world, just like O'Doyle rules the Billy Madison world. We are here at the ultimate in fantasy weeks, the last double of the year. Last chance to but through that ton score threshold and capitalize on those chip (whichever you are using). With 12 teams doubling up it gives us some tough decisions transfer wise. Who do we use in the forward position/ How many single game week players do I trust? If one or two, whom? All tough questions because there are so many great in form single game week players, but two is still greater than one and 180 minutes trumps 90. So transfer wisely when it comes to committing to single game week guys, no more than 2 should be gracing your entire roster and one of them is the back-up keeper. This week's rankings much like other double game week affairs will be littered with twice the flavor for my love towards weekly returns. So if you are torn between one guy or the other use my rankings to steer you to the promised land of fantasy points. Enjoy the week's games and I'll see ya tomorrow with the start's and sit's. Cheers!
Pull up a stool, first round is on me. Welp folks go to the chicken coop, grab all the eggs and throw them in the week 26 DGW basket, Chasing, points, leading or just having a snare of a season, it all shouldn't matter. This is the funnest time of the year. everyone scrambling around to get as many viable double asset players as possible into their rosters. You should be no different. The point hits are out the window for the chipless folks. Get the triple captain or BB fired up. I kinda feel like Vince Lombardi right now trying to motivate the troops for fantasy battle. If you googled fantasy battle and were looking for the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy advice column, thanks for stopping by. With tons of teams playing a double this week and all of them with awesome differentials and price dumps building a roster this week via either a points hit or chip is going to be a fun ordeal. So do your research, play the price changes game and strap on. It is going to be a fun ride for the next 10 days of build up and than games. Here are the transfer ideas for DGW 36. 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 36 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)
Week 36 comes rolling in the fantasy door like a kitten with soundproof shoes on. Seriously it is so quiet in here and the noise is all surrounding the 2 goals that were conceded in another tournament that really don't matter until Liverpool give up 3 more. Run-on sentences are fun, especially when the point you wanna prove falls on deaf 'Pudlian ears. So moving on in the museum tour of rankings for the FPL week 36. This is a severe set-up week, almost like an awful blind date setup by someone who doesn't really know your personality. You appreciate the fixtures but don't really ever plan to call or text or use this people again because you are dating twins next week. Twins! And not of the Minnesota variety. I always forget that not all the baseball jokes transfer correctly, but if you are into that sorta thing click on the baseball thing on monday's and Friday's as I continue my journey to the middle of popularity there. So transfer wisely this week, only bring in players that have a double next week. I mean it don't be stupid. Cheers!
Oh, Week 4 you young and burdening beast. The season has just started and we are already questioning the judgments that we made yet a month ago. No worries though faithful followers of the Razz. Each week is almost like a new beginning if you had a wildcard to use at your discretion every week. The rankings of midfielders and forwards is blossoming into a conundrum right before our very eyes. We planted it in the summer, watched the transfer window closed and now that the shop is closed this is where we are. 18 more weeks until roster shake-ups again (if any) and the inevitable new wildcard. So if you haven't used your first wildcard yet, bene. You have more restraint then most of the 5 million other players of this game. So here are the rankings for the midfielders and forwards for week 4, regardless of wildcard. Cheers!
The second installment of rankings is sometimes the favored. Because who doesn't like to score or assist to score. In almost any format that last sentence holds sway. But for now let's just skip the images in your head and talk about the meat and potatoes of the FPL weekly rankings. These fellas are more reliant on goals, assists and the BPS to drive them over the top. So with match-ups, form and common sense as the wind to their ranking sail the list is based on just those three things. So look at the schedule, trust the form and pray that I have some common sense when ranking these players. Here are the Week 3 rankings for the midfielders and forwards in the FPL. Cheers!
Welcome back all! We have two weeks down in the books, and I've provided some insight below into what I saw from a handful players, for better or for worse. Although I wish I could write about every player, remember that while we would to amass all of the players in the Fantasy Premier League universe, we are obligated to field a starting XI from your fifteen-man squad within the constraints of our budget. Hopefully some of these players below will at least be on your radar as you move forward with transfers and potential Wild Cards.
With the end of the season in sight, it is time to announce that tickets are now on sale for the first annual Razzball pancake breakfast. It is a bring your own eggs affair. A dozen is good but the amount of slackers that we have that will attend it is best to bring a dozen and a half. I will be your DJ in the kitchen cooking up hash browns on the ones and twos. Not sure if anyone else will be accompanying me in the chef department, if not, so be it. I am used to going at things on my own. So get pancake hungry y'all! Now to the lecture at hand, week 36 is here and it gives us a real strategy look at what to do the rest of the way. Whether you have the WC still at your discretion or not. Two teams, Arsenal and Southampton have fantasy assets in name only this week as both teams only offer the extra set of fixtures and not the allure. So don't go crazy with bringing in hopes and dreams of positive thinking this week and concentrate on Week 37 instead. But for now stay here enjoy my rankings and hell even stay and leave a comment or three. Happy transferring. Cheers!

Now that the back-enders are out of the way for Week 29, we can get down to the meat, potatoes and goal scorers. The quintessential fantasy meal. Getting the right set-up for midfielders is a lot harder than getting the forward ones correct right now. The options are seemingly endless, and given the shape, health and suspension levels going on in the forward ranks it is hard to get that right set for now and for the upcoming weeks. So play for now, grab for form, screw fixture through the middle. As far as the strikers go, it is kinda of weeded out for you through attrition really. With Kane and Ibra gone, it makes the forward ranks Lukaku, Costa, Manolo and maybe a roll of the dice with Sergio. Well, if you came for advice and ranks you came to the right place. Keep reading for the Week 29 Middies and Forward ranks. Cheers!
