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!

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!

It feels like the week before black Friday around holiday time.  All these useful pieces staring us in the face and we are firmly looking beyond that to when we can get two for one sales.  So with only 10 shopping days left til the double transferring smart rather than with your gut is the best strategy.  Now that the possibility exists of a Mo Salah injury it throws a monkey wrench in to the best laid plans of FPL men.  Do you stick or twist?  As we wait for the news to come out the rankings here reflect a tentative idea of who will do well this week,  the not so well aren’t listed because we are only interested in the cream of the crop.  The Derby weekend is here so get ready for some preemptive double game week love as we jump two feet into game week 33 of the FPL.  Cheers!

We are gathered here to discuss only the finest captain choices and disregard those that will not lead us to FPL glory. At the end of the day, your weekly captaincy choice plays a huge difference in your ranking, as it basically can guarantee a green arrow if/when you choose correctly. While nailing the pick each and every week would be splendid, the reality is you ain’t gonna get it right every time, so just trust your gut when picking the right captain and pray to the FPL gods that we will be a’stackin’ some point doublin’ over the course of the season.

Here are zee captain picks for GW 30:

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!

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.  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!

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!

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 HaroldLukaku 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!

I wish there were no FA Cup games this week.  It would make rankings so much easier and cut and dry.  But no!  They had to exist on top of the swamp donkey Cup and push everything off by two days.  Rankings alone are hard enough.  Now mix in another game of fixtures, wrapped in a rotational brioche bun.  Also, there are major implications happening with the transfer window and the additions and subtractions that are sending ripple like affects through the FPL universe.  I don’t sound too bitter though, so there is at least that.  None the less we soldier on and bring to you the second part of this week’s rankings in the Middies and Forwards.  the stud muffins of the ball.  The guys who have to give the chicks away because they score all the goals and make the music in the FPL world.  I am partially kidding because half of them prolly can’t play an instrument.  so less rambling, more rankings.  Week 25’s sexy front 7’s are right after the bumb.  Good luck with transfers and enjoy watching the FA Cup.  Cheers!
