The things associated with this week all have curious ties to the number seven …and Liverpool. So if Liverpool is Snow White than the other dudes this week are the feeble dwarfs. Seventh seal, Seven deadly sins, Un-Magnificent seven… you get the point yet? Good cause I was running out of cliche things with 7 in them. The talk around the FPL universe is whether or not it is advisable to using the free hit chp in order to have a fighting roster of 11 players. With another blank game week, with better teams to pick and choose from, my answer would be no. Plus with two doubles on the horizon saving all your chips til a later date seems like the best advice I can give. Rankings, is the other thing I can do for ya. Mow your lawn maybe. It is all ‘Pool all week this week as they face a Watford squad that is going to give up some goals whether they like it or not. So from a only have to choose from 8 teams approach, get to 8 players and concentrate on teh front 5-7 players as the clean sheet looks bleak in most cases. Here are the week 31 blank week rankings for FPL, happy hunting on transfers. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
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 26 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)Please, blog, may I have some more?
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!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?
Cuz picking captains is definitely a form of a degenerative and debilitating gambling addiction!
Black Jack: If we don’t hit black jack, then at the very least I’m going to double down on Raheem Sterling’s last week’s performance. He’s in form, he didn’t play midweek, and Man Shitty face Bournemouth at home recovering from a midweek match. I’d take a stab at you getting a big pay out by captaining Mistah Rahz this week.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Everyone knows that ole diddy. It’s the one with the fish wandering the desert looking for a prom date. Really sentimental stuff around this time of the year… marked with giving and mostly receiving. So week 18 cam and went and it made us question every single entity that exists with our current teams, especially the forward ranks and ownership. The complaint department for Harry Kane, Alvaro Morata, the ambiguously City Duo and Romey were at an all time high, and then Lukaku had to score and make everyone look stupid. Typical show-off. Shows up 15 minutes late, doesn’t pay for gas and than scores when everyone had given up hope on him being consistent. Liverpool put on a show and the City midfield are where all the cool kids hang out right now. And if they don’t, than they should be looking that way. Three pool, three City attack, two french hookers and a defender from Chelsea. Have no fear week 19 in the FPL is here. For the curious at heart and can’t wait to unwrap their presents before the Liverpool vs. Arsenal matchup on friday here are some transfer ideas and musings as I sing toons of the old country. Good luck with the transfers and may your FPL return be bountiful. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another week, another Champions league conundrum weighing over our ranking/transfer heads. Have no fear though, as this is the end of UCL for a few weeks so we can now get down to brass tacks. The FPL money is made with getting the right captain right, and getting lucky with your front 6,7, or even 8. We all can’t be lucky every week that all our players strike gold and find the net, but it would be nice and fantastic if they did. The December slate is a tough one to gauge for some middling teams and we can start to see what fixtures are ripe for the picking as we set up for the first DGW in Week 22. Stay in the here and now though and use those transfers wisely, taking a -4 isn’t the end of the world if it is a move for a differential. Don’t chase points on the most transferred in guys…stay the course basically. To help you with your course here are the week 16 FPL rankings for Forwards and Midfielders. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As much as some fantasy premier league managers complain about how the game has changed season to season, one truth has remained steadfast: the right captain pick will one hundred percent make or break your gameweek score. My own personal record of picking correctly has been pretty piss-poor in 2017, but I keep reminding myself that you have to play the best choice with the information at hand and not beat yourself up too much for getting it wrong. I’m hoping to improve and see green arrows again, and if not, then I will ask for support from this week’s theme and everyone’s favorite household object, whiskey! Best of luck!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Injury and mystique. Rotation and differentials. That’s what the FPL does. The attacking-type players that I am speaking of are becoming fewer and farther between as we get more nodded on with a template-type format for the front 8 players. Yes, I said 8. Because you have to roster 8. Those two punts that you casually stroll out as Midfielders are dying as you walk in the door, so go to coat check with your Carroll’s and RLC’s. The week 13-15 schedule is going to take a firm bite out of everyone’s lineups and no one is a tad bit nervous at all. The fact of the matter is that the 3 games in eight days thing is a real conundrum. Now add in the most rostered type players, who some have rotation issues. Some are already injured… Sadio. Then add in the battle ground of playing 3 fixtures in that 8 day period. If you are picking up what I am spitting then you need to start figuring out those bench spots and think for the future instead of looking at how good one fixture looks for week 12. So for the short-sighted… here are the week 12 FPL rankings for Middies and Forwards. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
You heard it right sports fans. No more international nonsense type stuff until Week 31. Which if you have a calendar handy, isn’t until the middle of March. Hooray for concentrating on the here and now for the FPL and the foreseeable future. Also, on the funnier side of scheduling is that the first 11 game weeks took 87 days to complete, the next 11 will be done in a mere 47 days. It is going to become a rush delivery, fantasy style. The funny thing about the days is that regardless of 87 or 47, we still don’t have any clear staple team. One that has so many intrical parts that we have to invest in to keep up with the so called Jonses’ of the FPL universe. Questions still remain on the right in form triple of strikers, who and how many Spurs, Liverpool, or City midfielders we should roster and defensively where the differentials are grander, we maybe have one possibly two all-day, everyday options. So the next 10-11 weeks that take us to the New Year’s day games will be a competitive balance of luck and skill. So here are some post Int’l break transfer ideas based on the transfer ideas going down in the FPL universe, plus some common sense or totally nonsensical ones too.
