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

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 38

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 38 Oh Andy! Andy, Andy, Andy… You big donkey. You have no idea how many seasons you wrecked last week! It was all there on a plate. Swansea on holidays and resting players, Man United struggling to defend crosses, you on a hot streak, 6 goals in the previous 7 games. And you decide to lay an egg on the all important ‘triple captain’ week for us. Thanks. It’s not even like your team didn’t score, they got 4 over the piece. Even an assist would have been appreciated, but no. And now everyone’s going to sell you this week in a fit of rage and you’re going to score 2 aren’t you, we just know it! Andy aside, our ‘DGW’ side had 8 players playing twice which equated to 19 chances as such. We scored 8...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 37

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 37 42pts! 42 lousy points! That’s not bad you say? Well it could have been so much better, but we’ll get to that shortly. 42pts minus the 4pts for the hit we took last week left us bang on the average of 38pts and gave us another red arrow dropping us to 139,998. Our hopes of a top 100k finish have taken something of a knock in the last two game-weeks and this in turn has placed extra pressure on us as we enter the penultimate game-week of the season. So where did those 42pts come from? As you can see we picked up 2pts from David de Gea but this really should have been 15pts from Karl! You probably won’t believe us but at approximately 8:30pm last Friday night a vote was held as to which of our keepers we would play and Darlow came out on top by three ...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 ...Read More

FF247 Team Game-week 35

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 35 That turned out nicely! Like many we attacked DGW34, played our Bench Boost chip and ended up with 173pts, which is by far our highest weekly score of the season and has rocketed us up to a rank of 110,894. Still not where we’d like to be, but bearing in mind seven game-weeks ago we were languishing in an embarrassing 900k place, we’ve done ok and had a great run. Let’s hope we can finish off the job and keep rising. So how was our week. Well, where do we start? Let’s get Liverpool out of the way! Having been Klopped by rotation in their first match of the week, our boys Coutinho and particularly Sakho came up trumps vs Everton with a goal each and a clean sheet for Sakho. Two clean sheets were ordered for United and DDG and they duly delivered, whi...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 34 CHIPS?! BLOODY CHIPS! Listen Mr FPL, we’re not liking your soddin’ CHIPS right now, we’ll tell you that much… Rant over. Maybe. In case you missed it we played a STUPID CHIP, sorry – *calms down*, last week. We decided to play, as many did, the WC CHIP ahead of GW33 with the intention of playing our Bench Boost CHIP this week. As you may have guessed already it didn’t go swimmingly! We ripped up our nicely performing and well crafted squad to replace it with one full of high hope for GW34 with that other CHIP, the BB, in mind. Had we not played it then we’d have scored… aww, you know what, never even mind, STUPID CHIPS!!!! Our DGW wildcard totalled 61pts, only slightly above the average of 56pts and en...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 33

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 33 Our rise up the rankings continued with another decent week which resulted in a total of 66pts vs an average of 47. We now sit in 292,920 place, up from 332,420 – that’s now six green arrows in seven weeks and with our wildcard imminent we are hopeful that our rise can continue over the last weeks of the season. Despite not keeping a clean sheet, seven saves from Loris helped him deliver 4pts, while our 2 defenders did the job. Ivanovic unfortunately played centre back vs Villa but still kept a clean sheet, but the star was Morgan who not only kept a cs, but also scored the only goal vs Southampton and gained 3bps and 15 in total. Happy days! In midfield, Ozil, Antonio, Alli and Mahrez did nothing, but Siggy kept his great run going with a goal at S...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 32

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 32 I say boom boom boom let me hear u say wayo. I say boom boom boom now everybody say wayo. Oh we only went and did it again. More green arrows, another stealth like rise up the rankings, more points than we know what to do with. The team is on fire!! Just the 91pts in GW31 vs an average of 56 has seen us record another season best in the rankings – we are now 332,420. Ok, ok, we know it’s not brilliant, but c’mon it’s way better than it was 4 weeks ago. In three weeks we have risen 574,215 places – quite unbelievable and laugh at our ranking all you want, we’re going to enjoy this moment! It would be easier to go through who didn’t contribute to our score in GW31 – namely Ozil and Aguero. Pair of losers...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 31

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 31 We hoped for a late surge to waht has been a disappointing season up to a couple of weeks ago and it looks like we’re on the right tracks. We smaches the average again this week as we scored 78pts vs an average of just 35pts – our score gave us a weekly ranking of 16,450 and lifted us 250k places in the overall ranking from 714,651 to a season’s best 463,763. Wonders will never cease. Our week, like many other teams was made by the choice of Kane as captain instead of Aguero who blanked at Norwich in the opening game of the week. Sadly Kane missed a few chances to add to his tally, but maybe we are being a tad greedy here. The scoring outside of Kane was solid all throughout the team – Lloris kept a clean sheet at Villa, whil...Read More
