Kops Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13

kops-tips-001So here we are at GW13, it will be lucky for some and unlucky for others. GW12 proved rather unlucky for many as the likes of Baines, Chadli and Downing, all of whom have relatively high ownership levels, were all forced to miss their respective games through injury, meaning some fantasy managers really did need to utilise their bench to extract every last point from a rather lifeless game-week. This once more just goes to prove how important our benches are, particularly with the games set to come at us thick and fast over the coming four or five weeks. This is likely to lead to players missing out with niggles while managers choose to rotate in an attempt to keep their players fresh. This week we haven’t just gone with the obvious choices, we have instead decided to bring a number of potential differentials to your attention, some obvious some not so obvious. Read More

Ever wondered how you compare to the rest of the Fantasy Premier League?

As we are nearing the end of our beta test period at fantasyfootballfix.com, we have been asking you what new features and statistics you would like to see on our site, to help you in your fantasy managerial journey.

Taking on board your feedback, we have spent the last few weeks developing a new FPL Statistics feature, which will give you the insight on the overall statistics within the FPL game giving analysis on averages.
All of the statistics we provide within the feature have been split into two sections, to give you overall averages within the FPL game, and also the average of the top FPL 1000 teams to provide insight as to how the elite structure their teams. So how can this information help you in your quest for FPL glory? Let’s take a look at the features…. Read More

Fantasy Football Pottys Predictions Gameweek 13

Pottys Predictions FPL Champions LeagueHello you Potty Punters, yes it’s that time of the week again where you enter the very strange and murky world that is Potty. Except it’s not Potty. Allow us to explain. You will remember last week when Potty had a week off to rest, relax and put his feet up? Of course you do – you all miss Potty. Well the cheeky buggar only entered the “3-day bender” at the last minute and only went and won the thing!! Despite actually picking Benteke who was suspended! Yes he saw off The Gallant Pioneer by 3pts to win the prize, which he will post to himself. Well, the story doesn’t end there. Oh no. So pleased was he to win his own competition, that he wants another go this week and has gone on strike so he can enter this week’s competition! What he doesn’t realise is his pay will be docked and any more of this behaviour and he’ll be back in the cellar in no time.
So Potty well done, email yourself blah blah blah! Read More

Captains Picks Fantasy Football Gameweek 13 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Captain picksThere’s no time for fluffy introductions this week guys and gals. No, no, no. This week we’re just talking hardcore fantasy football FACTS and STATS! No personal stuff just to help hit a word count target. No chance. Just an article full of statistic after statistic to help you make the right captain choice for this week. That’s what matters to you, and so that’s what matters to me. No waffle. Just facts. There’s no time to reminisce anymore about my glory days on the Saffron Walden High School playing fields. Nope, they’ll be none of that this week. We’ll be far too deeply engrossed in Shots-on-Goal %’s to worry about the rest of my story from last time out, where my team eventually won a match that went down in legend as the most violent lunchtime game in the school’s history. No sir. Not on my watch. We’ll be far too busy wading through EA Sports Player Performance Indexes to tell you that my own personal performance on that day was enough to win the affections of the (widely acknowledged) 3rd hottest girl in year 10. Definitely nowhere near enough time to tell you if that Year 9 kid ever made it out of the stinging nettles. And don’t even think about asking me what happened to Diego Pele (may he rest in peace) after I gave him his big break as my first pick in the aforementioned epic lunchtime match up. Nope, just stats. How many so far? 250 words? Already?! Perfect.
So here we go….. Read More

Fantasy Football Fixtures Gameweek 13

Fantasy football fixture tipsAnd welcome to GW13 already! 13 is unlucky for some, so they say. Let’s hope it’s a myth and is kind to fantasy managers. Certainly kinder than GW12 was anyway. GW12 was supposed to be about how many goals and points Costa and Aguero would accumulate and which of the supposedly only two viable / realistic captains would score more on the day. Well if we’d told you last week that the pair would come up with a solitary goal between them, no assists and zero bonus points you’d have said we were bonkers, but that’s exactly what happened and served to dampen many a fantasy managers week and that along with Southampton’s fairly poor showing at Villa certainly contributed to a relatively low average score this week. Those that were brave enough to captain someone else such as Eriksen, Gayle or Ings were rewarded handsomely (we know, you didn’t).

Fixture pile up!
GW13 commences this coming Saturday as normal and concludes on Sunday. GW14 is a midweek schedule taking place on the Tuesday and Wednesday immediately following next weekend and GW15 commences on the Saturday after this so it’s a very quick turn around next week. Do not forget and be caught unawares. We warned you, so no excuses! GW18, which is where the current tracker ends, represents the Boxing Day fixtures would you believe. Yes, scary as that may seem, all of your presents (socks, mainly) will have been unwrapped already by the time GW18 arrives. So let’s go and take a look at who we feel have good or indifferent fixtures ahead… Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 12 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 10The deadline bell has rung and your decisions are final – starting XI, order of your subs and most importantly your captain has been decided and there ain’t no turning back now…

The international break has been unkind to most fantasy managers and many will have logged on to see a succession of dreaded yellow and red injury flags. For those lucky ones still with a wildcard intact it may have been a great week to use it. For those with a couple of free transfers left then that prudence from last week may have added a crumb of comfort. For those that made early transfers… oh dear! So for those that actually have any players left… GW12 begins on Saturday at 3pm with no less than six games in the afternoon followed by possibly the game of the weekend at 5.30pm…

Chelsea v West Brom 3pm
Everton v West Ham 3pm
Leicester v Sunderland 3pm
Man City v Swansea 3pm
Newcastle v QPR 3pm
Stoke v Burnley 3pm
Arsenal v Man Utd 5.30pm

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 12

Fantasy football team tipsA pretty solid GW11 saw the team amass 71pts which was 20pts above the average and meant some more green arrows. It was another week where our scoring was spread evenly throughout the team and began well in the early kick off as Diego Costa scored at Anfield and combined with 2bps and a booking contributed 7pts. Cesc Fabregas was sadly quiet and produced just the 2pts. Onto the 3pm matches in which our only representatives were Southampton’s Toby Alderweireld and Dusan Tadic, Difra Sakho and our captain, Angel di Maria. ADM had a low key game but did manage an assist before he was taken off on 70mins, so 6pts doubled into 12 wasn’t the worst, but later events left us rueing choosing him as captain. A Southampton clean sheet brought 5pts for Alderweireld, while Tadic’s return was just 3pts. Sakho did nothing, unfortunately – just the 2pts from him. The evening kick off and Sergio Aguero left us another reminder as to his captaincy credentials as he notched City’s two goals at Rangers – he also claimed the 3bps to end up on 13. Ouch. We should have skippered him! Onto Sunday and it couldn’t have worked out much better. Leighton Baines scored and claimed maximum bonus points vs Sunderland, while Tim Krul kept a clean sheet at West Brom before Gylfi Sigurdsson, in the final match of the gameweek scored a goal and 9pts in Swansea’s win over Arsenal. We forgave Neil Taylor his booking and single point return on the basis of everything else going our way.
So despite us crushing the average, we only climbed 77 places to 2,120 in the world, illustrating the level of competition at the higher end of the leagues and how hard it is to make serious ground. Read More

Team Talk Fantasy Football GW12

IntroReady for action? Hungry for points? Excited to be back? Excellent news then as we say “au revoir” to international breaks for a while and get back to the real action. GW12 is upon us and we are reaching a crucial part of the season as the fixtures ramp up into the Christmas period, the hamstrings are tearing in the colder weather, whilst the yellow card count is mounting up for the players. Also, qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations is complete and we have details of what that means for FPL – and finally we have an exclusive offer from Woofbet for FF247 members to pit their FPL wits in the hunt for some Christmas spending cash. We have it all here on TeamTalk. Let’s get down to action.
Our gameweek commences at 3pm on Saturday with six matches. Chelsea entertain West Brom at the Bridge, Everton take on West Ham, Sunderland travel to Leicester, Man City host Swansea, Newcastle welcome QPR and Burnley visit Stoke. Early evening we’re down to the Emirates as Arsenal play Man Utd. Sunday sees two games as Liverpool take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst before Hull entertain Spurs in the later kick off. Our gameweek comes to an end on Monday evening and they’ll be significant interest for many of us as Aston Villa welcome Southampton to Villa Park. As you will no doubt be aware, the injuries picked up in the international break have been extensive to say the very least – on that regard be aware that many managers will give their injured players as much time to recover as possible, which means in some cases definite decisions may be delayed until the morning of the game. Which doesn’t help us one bit – but don’t shoot the messenger!
So let’s wade through the minefield and go Around the Grounds to see what the managers themselves have had to say. Read More

kops-tips-001With all the international fixtures over and done with for 2014 we can now sit back, relax and enjoy an unbroken run of FPL fixtures until the 3rd round of the FA Cup in January. This international break could eventually prove to have been quite disastrous from an FPL point of view as at the time of writing Leighton Baines, Angel Di Maria, Dusan Tadic and Danny Welbeck are all yellow flagged due to injuries picked up on international duty, while Cesc Fabregas is also on a yellow flag. Obviously now is a time to remain calm and keep a cool head, although this is easier said than done while all around you panic. However as a result of this panic I suspect many managers will be taking a points hit this weekend but if you can refrain from such panic and hold your transfers until after Fridays press conferences you could be well placed to jump up the rankings. Anyway with all this panic in the air we have endeavoured to outline a number of players whom we feel can deliver over the coming weeks. Read More

Pottys Predictions FPL Champions LeagueGreetings Punters, hope you are all well and have had a profitable week at the bookies. We have given Potty a week off this week as he literally hasn’t stopped since the season began and the old boy needs to put his feet up every now and again. So we, the FF247 team, have filled in and come up with this week’s competition. But first things first, Gwk 11 Potty Predictions was called “Goal and Points this Sunday”…. When this day ended Raziel, Horse and Silverback were all equal. So a tiebreaker took place last night (Tuesday), and again all 3’s predictions failed. So the yellow card tiebreaker came into force and Raziel stated that only 7 cards would be shown and yes only 7 yellow cards got flashed making RAZIEL the Gwk 11 Winner. Well done Raz! E-mail Potty at prctrdvd@gmail.com to claim your Potty prize.
Potty will catch up with all of the International Comps on his return. Read More

Captain picksWhat a wonderful time to have the opportunity to write an article for our great site. Although we didn’t win at the Football Blogging Awards this week, our stock has probably never been higher and I would personally like to place on record my appreciation for the time offered and dedication selflessly shown by our band of fantasy figureheads. They descended upon the National Football Museum in Manchester on Thursday to represent very smartly, the FF247 name. And whilst the local lads Init, B-Bash and Muts chucked on a shirt and rolled out the door five minutes before curtains up, some came by train and left with train (and hangover), our Erasure-loving Rich*. Some came by air, namely Kop and Calvin (Easyjet) and Monsieur Cookie (private jet).
* In the interest of balanced and fair reporting, Calvin was our Vince Clarke to Rich’s Andy Bell. Now no laughing please, show A Little Respect….

Here’s to next year gentlemen, and with another 12 months under our belts, I fancy us to make our mark (and not just on the free bar).

Anyway back to the business at hand. Read More

Upon closer inspection you will see it is actually a snapshot of our first ever article which was exactly 12 months ago today. Happy Birthday FF247!

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your contributions over the past year and your continued support from all around the world.

FPL life is a hoot and not all black for NZ Alex

We are thrilled and honoured to welcome a very special member of the FF247 community into headquarters today. Alex Ball, or as he is more affectionately known to us, NZ Alex, has agreed to sit in the interview chair, for the very good reason that his team “Owls Rule” is having a barnstorming season. Currently 100th in the world, yes you read that right, 100, Owls Rule have 720 points, leads every mini league he is in, bar just the one and this is all without playing his wildcard yet! Pretty special stuff eh? And we make no apologies for saying that it always feels that bit more special when “one of our own” is riding high in FPL – it also means we can grill him more extensively! On that note, let’s explore the secret behind NZ Alex’s brilliant start to the season and find out a bit more about the man himself. Read More
