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?

You hear that drumming in  the distance? That is the upcoming schedule.  Rearing its slow and steady beat and invading your every thought.  Every transfer decision you make from here on out should be with the biggest four weeks on your mind. With 2 blank weeks and 2 doubles in the remainder of the calender, rankings mean only so much to the clearer bigger picture.  Think long and hard about your preparation for those weeks as every player thank blanks that you may own or transfer in reverberates to gameweeks 34, 35 and 37.  So be smart and slow the pace of play a bit and instead of hitting confirm transfer think again about it.  get yourself on a plan of attack for the final 11 weeks of play.  Chips in hand, wildcards to play.  Stack them up against players in your mini league and dominate.  But for those playing it by the seat of their pants here are the week 28 rankings for the FPL.  Good luck and Cheers!

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!

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!

This week’s fixtures have all the makings for one of two things.  It is either going to be an offensive juggernaut that produces lots of goal from all the usual suspects and teams.  Or it is a huge trap week and Liverpool and City all shat the bed and leave us holding our heads in despair.  Either way it will cause a panic at not only the disco, but through the transfer adds/drops for week 25.  My advice to that is, screw week 25.  We still have this week to play before we get all crazy britches about speculation of next week.  the only thing you should be looking forward to schedule wise is the DGW, blank weeks and who will or won’t.  So until than let us gaze upon the beautiful fixtures that are here now.  It almost appears that the top 6 teams are all playing the bottom six teams and all the middle teams are playing each other. It is a bizarre state of scheduling that from my expert lifeguard chair is going to be another fabulous week of fantasy output for all.  So here’s to you, your team and fingers-crossed for a bountiful week. Week 24 rankings for middies and forwards is right after the bump.  Cheers!

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!

Rankings are the gift that either keeps on giving or ones that you quickly wanna re-gift.  Either way, I am giving you them with a fake smile on my face.  So you take that as a ehh, or a ehhhh.  Either way, I am content.  Week 19 attacking players got a bit of a shock as Morata got accumulation suspension in the Cup game and will miss.  This basically sends a ripple effect throughout all the rankings.  So if you are in the mood for those type of things keep reading and get to them.  Or you can stay here and listen to me wax poetic about almost nothing, as I have the innate ability to just lull you to sleep with nothing.  Screw that skip ahead, enjoy the rankings.  Happy Holidays to all and good luck this week.  Cheers!
