Fantasy Football Tips

The Tips article, which will be released on Thursdays, is where we take a look at which players should be considered for your team, both on a short-term and longer-term basis. While the more obvious selections will, naturally, be included, we will also endeavour to find those hidden bargains and differentials that could set you apart from your rivals and help your performance in your mini-leagues.

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 22

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 22 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 22. Firstly, looking back at last week’s Tips I would like to pay tribute to Mr Inittowinit who brought us his ‘Transfers In’ led article which was rather annoyingly, an entirely original and simple idea delivered expertly. Pity Diego Costa was in it but we can hardly blame Init for that much as we may like to. So I decided to focus on a few differentials in this week’s Tips and I imposed a ‘sub-10% ownership’ model and my selections, which I’ve listed in no other order than playing position and then descending ownership percentage, can all (except two) be considered differentials which might help you pull yourself away from the quagmire of your congested mini-leagues. Mito’s excellent intro or ‘pre-ram...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 21

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 21 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 21. Just for a change we aren’t going to select players this week, instead we are going to let the game itself select them for us! We are going to take a look at the most transferred IN players for this round. And then we are going to tell you why we think this is and then whether we think thousands of other people are on the right track or whether they have lost their minds! It’s a fair sample selection as well because the transfer window has been open for well over a week already and the top 3 players from each position have attracted over 1.2 million transfers between them and that’s just at the time of writing*. Let’s take a look and see what people are up to… Goalkeepe...Read More

FPL Ramblings Part 3 The Midfield Minions

FPL Ramblings Part 3 The Midfield Minions Thanks for reading FPL Ramblings Part 3 The Midfield Minions : In previous seasons the budget midfielder has more often than not been a player who was priced at £4.5m or below who sat on your bench week in week out and would hopefully deliver you 2pts when called upon. For some of you that may also be the case this season but with the way this season has panned out many of you will undoubtedly be placing much more emphasis on your budget midfielder. 3-5-2 has emerged from the wilderness this season meaning that your 5th midfielder needs to be someone who is capable of scoring points on a semi-regular basis. Those of you who continue with the tried and trusted 3-4-3 formation may be deploying a budget player as your 4th midfielder, particularly if y...Read More

FPL Ramblings Part 1 Wildcard Wonders

FPL Ramblings Part 1 Wildcard Wonders Welcome to FPL Ramblings Part 1 Wildcard Wonders: With the advent of the the January wildcard there has been much discussion as to when it is best to play this particular tactic. It lurks in the shadows like a tempting mistress from the second it is available, but can you resist, or indeed should you? Some have already jumped on it like a ravenous Boris Johnson presented with the slightest hint of thigh and devoured it’s wholesome goodness to sate their appetite for some missing piece in the jigsaw. Which was probably Aguero. It was almost certainly Aguero. DMC nailed it in the comments the other night saying “Ahead of GW20 around 173k Aguero Cards were deployed”!!! For those with it left though they do have a decision to make. One wh...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 18

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 18 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 18. Hi everyone and welcome to your Tips article for Game-week 18, which falls on Boxing Day (if like me you lose track of which exact day it is at this time of year). I’d like to start by recapping the FF247 Christmas Party, if I may; It was a beauty which is more than can be said for any of the ‘gentlemen’ who were in attendance. Cookie was asleep amongst the coats, Kop was found in a cupboard, with himself muttering to himself, about his rank and how he was better when he was younger and everything these days is just ‘noise’. Mito was on the phone screaming loudly in to the receiver something about the quality of his latest cut, whilst a crimson and crying Guy Sanchez sheepishly placed do...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Captain Picks Gameweek 17

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Captain Picks Gameweek 17 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips and Captain Picks Gameweek 17. Full disclosure: I scored only 47 points this last round – and that’s just one point below the average. And in a lot of ways, that’s probably emblematic of this article, just one point below average. I mean, c’mon, what do you want from me? This last round was a bit of a dumpster fire, and it was so unpredictable that I feel a bit sheepish trying to fully predict what this next round holds. We knew there would be rotation, we didn’t quite know how much. We had reports that Rondon liked hats and he was fond of tricks, but we never thought he’d combine those elements the way he did. Everton went old-school and supplied points from three of their defenders, jus...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 16

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 16 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 16. It’s a quick turnaround this week and in terms of ‘tips’ this week if you read no further, or indeed read nothing else this week, do yourself a favour and read the next sentence only. The deadline for GW16 is Tuesday 13th December at 6.45pm UK time. Many won’t realise or even be aware of it. We always see posts or tweets after a midweek deadline from people saying they didn’t know or forgot. Let’s just hope that happens in your mini league! Lots of people walking around their offices this week whistling quietly and touching their nose. And then asking very loudly who their co-worker captained ‘this week’, two minutes after the deadline. Sly lot you. An...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 15

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 15 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 15. It was Christmas Eve babe, In the drunk tank, An old man said to me, won’t see another one… So it’s not quite Christmas yet but it’s time to start getting into the festive spirit. For some Christmas is about making a fool of themselves at the office Christmas party, for others it’s about spending time with family, for others it’s about presents, while for some it’s a religious time of the year. For some of us it’s about squeezing five game-weeks into three weeks, yes indeed we’ve got our priorities straight. As we’ve seen over the course of the season rotation is becoming an even bigger issue than it has been in the past and it’s only going to get worse over the weeks ahead. So start your plan...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 14

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 14. Whether you’re superstitious or not, the number 13 when it came to fantasy football was unlucky for a good number of people. Being Gameweek 13, those who captained Coutinho, for example, thinking he was going to blow Sunderland out of the park, are no doubt licking their wounds. There also seems to be an influx of injuries at the moment, too, with the likes of Holebas, Giroud, Heaton, Shawcross, Firmino and Sterling joining a growing list that also features Lallana, Bellerin and Friend. You could say the past few weeks have been a bit reminiscent of last season. Players that barely feature in many teams have suddenly exploded into life, leaving a lot of players scratching their head and wondering ho...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 13

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 13 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 13. Hello and welcome to the TIPS article for Game-week 13. Now, we all know that resident Tips guru Mr Kop Warrior hates writing intros but does he like having intros written ABOUT him? This is the week we find out as it simply can’t go unmentioned that his Tips for Game-week 12 were generally quite amazing. I usually refer back to the previous week’s article before I begin to write my own. Now I wish I hadn’t! Analysing it, to begin with Kop gave us Fraser Forster for between the poles who provided a clean sheet in Southampton’s draw with the normally lethal Liverpool. Two of his mid-priced midfielders (Juan Mata and Gylfi Sigurdsson) obliged with goals in their respective matches. Wilfried Zaha picke...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 12

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 12 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 12. The FPL gods are clearly conspiring against me as yet again I’m forced it’s my turn to write the Tips article immediately after an international break when every man and his dog appears to have a yellow flag. I’m probably exaggerating somewhat but Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are flagged and between them they have in excess of 300k transfers in this week. It just goes to show the importance of not shooting your load when it comes to making transfers (sometimes I really should listen to my own advice). We’re now 11 game-weeks into the season and some of us are seriously lagging behind and we’re now reaching the stage where we need to take the odd gamble if we’re to remain competitive over the remainde...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Formation Analysis

Fantasy Premier League Tips Formation Analysis Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Formation Analysis. What formation to play has previously and largely been a non-discussion. In past seasons it’s seemed that, other than a few voices pushing for a 3-5-2 formation, the default has been a 3-4-3. Front heavy teams have thrived with expensive forwards like Kun, van Persie, Drogba, Rooney, Suarez etc. Mix in a few high priced mids and cheap enablers in the defence and on the bench and you’ve had yourself a recipe for success. Are we suddenly beginning to see a shift this season though? It certainly feels like it but is there any evidence to back this up or does it just feel like it because Klopp’s computer says ‘no’ to forwards?! We shall take a look at the over...Read More
