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!
Everyone remember that old Nintendo game, Double Dribble. Well that is what the FPL is offering up this week the Doubles that are causing us to all dribble with drool. The options are abundant, and set up nicely for chips...granted you have set yourself up that way. Rankings for double game weeks are fairly easy and I will explain my thinking on this process. If a double game week player plays the minimum amount of minutes and gets the basic 2 point return (no clean sheet, no cards etc) he will get two games of that for a total of 4 points. Stupid math explanations are awful i reading but stay with me. The single gameweek player will get only 2 pints for just minimal returns in his single match. So from a gambling standpoint would you rather have a player who plays two games to actually give you fantasy returns as compared to just one? the answer is only the two match player. The further you get down in the rankings the better the return odds for the star players but for the most part the two match player always wins. it's like old maid but with football boots and kits instead. So here are the FPl rankings for matchweek 34, the week we have been pining for since we started to know that doubles existed. Good luck and happy chipping and transferring. 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 32 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)
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!
