Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 22 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 22 article. After 2 weeks of relying on Phillips and Defoe boosting us up the rankings we are pleased to report that the other 9 finally woke up too this week! Well ok, 7 of them did, but we’ll take it. We ended up on a fairly respectable 80 points which meant another small climb in the rankings and we now sit at 24,291. Cech and Holebas brought us clean sheets whilst Walker brought us that and more. Erik came home with his usual array of assists and all 3 of our forwards scored. Captain Sanchez was looking decidedly dodgy until a late goal suddenly transformed his score from a lacklustre 6 to a splendid 22. Fine margins. We should point out that we said last week that we were saving our...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 21 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 21 article. Last time we spoke to you we were celebrating Phillips and Defoe getting us 20 points in the past week – “It’s funny like that sometimes in FPL because we ended up having our hand forced a little to do two transfers we wouldn’t ordinarily have done had it not been for a combination of injuries, suspensions or obvious rotation. As it was it ended up being a thoroughly inspired bit of business! We sort of reluctantly brought in Phillips and Defoe with most of the transfer committee agreeing it was the right (and probably only) thing to do whilst at the same time shrugging and yawning at the prospect. Well bugger us, they only went and got another 20 points bet...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 18 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 18 article. Another week and another tumble down the overall. After scoring 37 points we should have not expected anything good to come from it. That score put us in the 3.5 million range for the gameweek and dropped us 37k in the overall. This now leaves us in 117k and adds to our recent struggles. That is three red arrows on the bounce and just think, it could have been worse. During the transfer decision last week we had a fight over buying Andy in for a hit. Thankfully we didn’t, otherwise this could have really been embarrassing to narrate. It is not common that you find great success when your keeper is your highest scorer and we were not the exception. Pickford came to play, Walke...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 17 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 17 article. Parachutes at the ready people, we are in free fall! Well ok, it’s not that bad to be fair but we did suffer our second consecutive slump in the rankings landing at 70,792nd with a total score last week of a poorly 43, 5 below the average. So what went wrong and which players do we need to take aside and have a word with and which ones do we need to take outside and dispose of?! Captain Kane against struggling Hull was a no brainer. With two braces in his previous two home games he would surely get at least that and more in this one. He brought home a captains duck of 4, and so set the tone for the rest of our numpties… Our top scorer was Walker with 11, followed by San...Read More

  Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 16 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 16 article. Well, that didn’t go as planned. We had 8 guys earn 5 points or less this gameweek, that is usually not a recipe for success. However not everything was gloom and despair as among all the crappiness there was some FPL heroes that came to at least save us from total disaster. With the likes of Alexis, Kane, Firmino, Pedro, Walker and Cech one would not expect to be turning to a Swan and Hornet defender for the points. Amat and Holebas did what they could for us and rescued our dignity. Well them and The Prince of Darkness Diego Costa. Because with a bunch of misses everywhere on the team we did manage to captain our highest scorer. So thank you Prince Diego and our two defen...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 14 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 14 article. Having fared poorly the previous week, as many did, we needed to bounce back this week and we did just that with a decent 68 points which saw us rise over 45,000 places and back up to a respectable overall rank of 34,512. Captaining Sanchez helped us massively, as did hanging onto Kun, which in itself feels like a feat given that 4/5 of the committee actually now admit that they sold him on their own teams! Other than those two, Austin got us 9 and Pieters brought a clean sheet and 6 but the rest were left wanting, it does go to show that you can still post a decent score if just a few of your troops turn up. Our big disappointment was of course our actual transfer as we had planne...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 13

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 13 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 13 article. So we managed a scintillating 38pts last week which was two below the average. Despite again finishing below the average we were actually quite pleased with ourselves on Monday night. Going into the West Brom game with had just 19pts to our name. Step forward Allan-Roméo Nyom and Darren Fletcher. When we bought Nyom ahead of GW12 we didn’t expect him to be our highest scoring player but thanks to the clean sheet, an assist and two bonus points he finished up on 11pts (High five us!). Fletcher climbed off our bench to replace Gundogan and duly chipped in with a goal meaning he contributed 8pts to our total. The fact that the rest of our team managed 19pts between the nine of them sa...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 11 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 11 article. If we said that six of our team all scored 3 points or less this week then you’d maybe expect that this would then lead onto a story of sorrow and despair. It just goes to show what having a minority of decent performers can actually produce though as we managed a fairly respectable 79 with a load of hallowed green arrows in all the right places. Cech, Walker, Pieters, Sterling, Capoue and Deeney are the players doing the walk of shame. Holebas, Firmino, Sanchez, Aguero and Lukaku can all hold their heads high, if they can shoulder the weight of our team. They carried us through to a small rise in the rankings from 57k to 39k. It’s not ground breaking but at this stage ...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 9 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 9 article. One Jose Holebas, there’s only one Jose Holebas, one Jose Holebas! We’ll come back to our favourite Greek in a moment. With the average score for GW8 being 39pts it’s safe to suggest that we weren’t the only ones to have a shocker. We ended up with 45pts which resulted in a red arrow dropping us to 66,878 in the rankings. To be honest it could have been worse. Our captain, a certain Sergio Aguero finished the gameweek on a minus score thanks to his penalty miss. We’re pretty sure that’s the first time our captain has contributed a negative score. So back to Holebas. Thanks to a goal, a clean sheet and three baps he finished with 15pts which was a massive 33% of our total. Elsewhere o...Read More

FF247 Site Team Game-week 5 FPL Tips Welcome to the FF247 Site Team Game-week 5 FPL Tips article. Well, that was fun while it lasted. Our rank took a proper beating last week unfortunately, so thank gawd our transfer of Costa worked otherwise we’d be in deep poo poo. We scored just 38pts in GW4 vs an average of 43, which saw us fall from a rank of 22,450 down to 78,944. There are very few highlights for us to be brag about – Costa was clearly the best performer with his 12pt return from a Sunday in Wales, while Baines chipped in with a clean sheet and two baps on Monday night at Sunderland. Zlatan was the only other performer who managed to notch more than 2pts as the Swede scored his customary goal in the derby but blotted his copybook with a reckless yellow card. Pape Souare ...Read More

FF247 Site Team Game-week 1 FPL Tips Welcome to the FF247 Site Team Game-week 1 article. A blank page. A clean slate. A slab upon which to paint fantasy football glory. 15 slots to fill with the finest at our disposal. This should be easy then. Last seasons heroes go in first – Vardy, Payet, Kane, Bellerin, Cech, Ozil and Toby. Add in the best of the new arrivals and transfers- Ibra, Pogba, Feghouli, Miki, Stones, Redmond, Valdes and Mane and we should be good to go, yeah? Dead easy. Oh hang on, what do you mean there’s a budget? And a formation, you say? Back to the drawing board then… and the reality that you can realistically only have a small handful of the aforementioned stars. And the skill is not only in picking which of those to take but also in finding the bargai...Read More
