Captain Picks Fantasy Football Game-week 37 – Fantasy Premier League 2015/16

Captain Picks Fantasy Football Game-week 29So here we are. The home stretch. The finish line of the fantasy footballing season from hell now well and truly in sight. At least for the small handful of the 3.7 million registered “fantasisers” who are still “active” and still “playing”. Just reach out and “touch” it! Actually, I better stop there, for fear LVG may be “watching”. LVG has proven in recent days that he’s quite the expert on certain non-football matters, especially those where descriptors such as “fantasisers”, “active”, “playing”, “touch” and “watching” are apt. As long I don’t take the opportunity to pull my own hair, hey Louis? I could go on, but I’m beginning to lose track of why I started this piece…
Oh yeah, something about Captains. That is, those who we expect to “dominate” the “scoring” this week. OK, LVG might still be reading. Wow, this is descending very rapidly (not in LVG’s case, though, it seems). OK, OK, I’ll stop there, I haven’t the “stamina” to continue. The lawyers will start “whipping” me back to the script. Forgive me “Sir”…

Fantasy Football Fixtures Game-week 37

36 down and now just the 2 to go. The last real key GW of the season is now upon us and no doubt the usual mix of glee and horror awaits, luring us in with promises of a bonanza week, before dishing out one last kick in the gut to send us on our merry way for the summer. The big guns failed to deliver again last time out as Arsenal stumbled over the line against bloody Norwich and City cemented their place as this seasons No1 flop from those challenging for the title, much to the displeasure of us fantasy folk and don’t get us started on Liverpool and their merry-go-round team! Last week we featured West Ham, Liverpool and Sunderland as those with the better DGW fixtures as well as Arsenal due to their handy enough schedule, however much they struggle with it. So, this week we’ll take a look at some of the other DGW teams who may be worth looking at and, as usual, a couple who may need dealing with if we want to finish the season with anything other than a whimper.

Given that next weeks games drag out until Wednesday, and also that there is only one week left to analyse after that, (pretty sure you can do that yourselves by just looking at the GW38 fixture list!) this will probably be your final ‘Fixtures’ article of the season. And as such we, the Fixtures team (Init and NIN), just wanted to say a massive thank you for your support this season. Whether you are viewing this on the site itself or via twitter or FB or whatever platform is your preference, we thank you. We thank you whether you’ve just simply read it or indeed actually taken the time to comment on the article itself. Particularly so if you have taken the time to interact and comment, as that is what keeps us going in all honesty. It’s been our pleasure to present this to you each and every week and the fact that it has had over half a million views this season speaks volumes. We hope it has helped a handful of those at least!

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 36 – Fantasy Premier League 2015/16

Fantasy Football Live Match ChatAnd so finally back to a ‘normal’ game-week. All teams play, they all play just once and there’s no silliness. Well, that’s the theory anyway. There probably will be some once the team sheets are revealed but let’s see. There will of course be silliness again next week as we have another DGW and there will definitely be silliness the week after as there always is on the final day of the season with some strange results, and there’s always the odd 7-0 thrown into the mix for good measure. Yes Villa, we are looking at you! For now though let’s hope GW36 treats us well… The fixtures in full… Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 36

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 36

As Dinah Washington would have put it, what a difference a ‘game-week’ makes! From the highs of GW34 when we scored an impressive 173pts, GW35 certainly brought us back down to earth as we scored a paltry 39pts. As a result we picked up a red arrow as we slid back to a rank of 130,431. It is however our 2nd highest rank of the season. Yes we realise we are clutching at straws! With only seven games in GW35 it was never going to be a high scoring game-week but after a steady climb up the rankings we had hoped for more than 39pts.
So where did it all go wrong? Well the fact that we only fielded eight players was certainly a contributing factor. We were down to the bare bones even before the game-week kicked off as our bench was made up of players who were not going to feature. The game-week got off to a bad start as de Bruyne was benched ahead of this week’s CL semi-final although this wasn’t a major surprise. Around lunchtime on Saturday news started to emerge that Mamadou Sakho would not feature for Liverpool as he had failed a drugs test, this was confirmed by the club at 1:30pm and we were down to nine players. We were reduced to eight players early on Sunday afternoon when the Arsenal team was announced and Wenger had stuck with Mertesacker over Gabriel. Thanks Arsene.
So where did the 39pts come from? The biggest contributor was Riyad Mahrez who chipped in with 9pts and with Leicester picking up their customary clean sheet his colleague Danny Simpson also weighed in with 6pts. Nacho Monreal also contributed with 6pts. Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero were disappointments as between them they managed just 9pts. We went into Monday night with high hopes for our captain Harry Kane and his sidekick Dele Alli but emerged with just 8pts.

Team Talk Fantasy Football Gameweek 36So, just three game-weeks to go before our summer holidays, although watching some of the Premier League teams you could be mistaken for thinking they have beaten you to the beach. But for us we need to finish the season well, chase down or see home our mini-leagues and ensure that this season doesn’t go down as our worst ever! There is no early match this week, but we do at least have a full compliment of fixtures, so no excuses for not fielding a full team this week. Five 3pm matches kick us off as Everton host Bournemouth, Newcastle aim for a much-needed win at home to Palace, Sunderland do likewise at Stoke, relegated Villa go to Watford and it’s “Go West” as Bromwich face Ham. The early

evening should treat us well as Arsenal welcome Norwich at the Emirates. Onto Sunday and Liverpool go to Swansea, before Leicester visit Man Utd and will seal the league with a win. In the final game of the day, Southampton welcome Man City. Our game-week concludes Monday evening and it’s Spurs again, for the 3rd Monday in a row as they take the short trip to Chelsea.
Both Man City and Liverpool have been involved in Europe this week and face 2nd leg ties next week, so good luck with the rotation! Let’s go Around the Grounds to see what the managers have had to report.

Fantasy Football Tips Game-week 36 – Fantasy Premier League 2015/16

247-tips-001It is often said that getting over the line is the hardest part of a race, presumably by cheeky rapscallions who refuse to release the finishing tape properly at marathons. But is it really the case? As soon as the end roars into view the adrenaline bestows upon us a fresh surge of enthusiasm to complete our mission. A mission, which we chose to accept last August; one that became impossible once we realised we were all 300 points behind a bunch of flukey sods who started the season with 3 Leicester players. Nevertheless, we’ve come this far and we’ll all moan about it being gone come summertime.

So let’s all rally together for a final hurrah as we push towards the chequered flag and allow this following nugget of stoic Dunkirk spirit to inspire us all. As a teenager Jamie Vardy once paid £29.99 for a rare Prince vinyl, a tenner more than he’d budgeted for. He pledged to celebrate regardless stating defiantly, “Tonight I’m gonna party like it’s £19.99”.

In line with contractual obligations, here are some tips4U including some diamonds, the occasional pearls of wisdom, and a few Sexy MF’s (Midfielders). I’m personally on a wildcard right now and focusing on personnel to bring my team round the final bend. Most of them have 4 games left, but as we saw in DGW34 rotation risk is a sign o’ the times. More fixtures doesn’t guarantee more minutes so try to avoid those prone to being rested… and obviously Romelu Lukaku.

Captain Picks Fantasy Football Game-week 29No doubles, no blanks, no fun. We’ve all been planning ahead… but not for this one! The captaincy decision still demands our attention though. Using the Triple Captain chip on Sanchez or Aguero for the recent double game-week went down a treat – they, of course, feature here once again – whilst giving the armband to Martial ended in tears: it’s a fine line that must be tread carefully every single time.

This late stage of the season is a strange one; even Leeds have more to play for than half of these teams now. There’s a variety players here: those from teams that are still fighting for something, those with a double immediately after, those who’re playing Villa. Buffet.

Sit back and relax. It’s time to find the perfect antepenultimate captain of the season. Just after I clear my search history of “before penultimate” and “extreme chicken wrestling”…
