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 Football Tips Gameweek 28

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 28 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 28. So, here we are then, the storm as a result of the FA Cup fifth round is upon us and we’re already seeing games taken out in Gameweek 31, with another postponement possible once Spurs undertake the replay against Rochdale. On the basis that the north London team makes it past the League 1 side – like Man City didn’t on Monday night – to Round 6, their game against Newcastle becomes the sixth fixture out of a possible 10 that will be a big fat blank for that week. Looking at that week in March, you may want to use your free hit chip, however do bear in mind Gameweek 35 then carries with it blank gameweek possibilities as well. It clashes with Round 7 of the same tournament with Man City v Swansea, Br...Read More

Navigating upcoming GWs to field a strong team in BGW31

Welcome to Navigating upcoming GWs to field a strong team in BGW31 It’s been a tough FPL season for many of us. The bad news is that it’s about to get even tougher with a number of blank and double GWs to navigate as we slowly reach its final stages. There is good news too though: there is a huge opportunity in those trickier upcoming weeks and those of us who’ll take advantage of it will be the ones who may still find pride in their OR once the dust of this FPL season has finally settled. The first stage of this opportunity has begun already and will end with a very tough BGW31. The purpose of this article is to provide some thoughts on how to manage our FPL teams throughout this stage. Or in other words, to answer the following question: How can we field 10 players in BGW31 without sacri...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27. Those of us who write for the site have a WhatsApp chat which is primarily used to ensure that everyone knows who’s writing what and when. From time to time there is some conversation and on Monday night it went a little like this, (abridged version)… Rosco: Fixtures sent, off to shoot myself in the face. Init: Good luck with that, you’ll probably miss. Init: Oh dear. Kop has a rival misery guts judging by the first paragraph. AT: Ahh shite Rosco: What’s up hun? AT: I might have to rewrite mine to be more upbeat. Can’t have the whole site plunged into a state of misery all week hahaha. Rosco it was an excellent intro, I share your pain mate. It has however got me thinking. Perhaps I should try being posit...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 25

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 25 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 25. Hello and welcome to your Tips article for Gameweek 25. This particular week falls midweek and will be played out across next coming Tuesday and Wednesday and I must admit, midweek FPL is one of my favourites. Whether it is the condensed gameweek of just two nights covering all your players or whether it is the rush of tension and panic regarding so much breaking team news at the same time or the fact that the evening games and I get peace to watch football from first kick to last, I don’t know. I just love it. Jurgen Klopp may not, of all the teams playing in the FA Cup this weekend, Liverpool are the only ones who play their Gameweek 25 fixture within 72 hours of their cup tie ending. This ironically is due t...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 24

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 24 There are so many mottos you can say in football: “It’s a marathon, not a sprint” can be applied all season-long, “All good things have to come to an end” would be how Man City must be feeling as their unbeaten run did just that and then there’s “All good things come to those who wait”. Well, the last gameweek particularly showed how true the latter phrase was as a number of the players we had brought in for the double gameweek suddenly sprung to life. Kane, Lanzini and Arnautovic rewarded owners who had stuck with them after initial disappointment, whilst the likes of Alli and Son carried on being the gift that kept giving. As we hopefully put the chaos of Christmas player rotation behind us, we fantasy football managers can start to enjoy ourselves befor...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23. Certain people did their best over the weekend to get me into a bad mood (Init) so I’d best live up to my GABO nickname and have a bit of a moan. The obvious thing for me to have a moan about would be the departure of Coutinho but that was going to happen sooner or later. Instead I’ll have a moan about the FA Cup. I’m all about the good ol’ days when it comes to football so it saddens me to see how they’ve trivialised the Cup. The FA Cup 3rd round is all about 3pm kick offs on a Saturday afternoon not 8pm kick offs on a Friday night! Who’ll ever forget non-league Sutton United defeating a Coventry side who only 19 months earlier had won the competition? Or a 37-year-old Mickey Thomas equalising for Wrexham agai...Read More

Fantasy Football Christmas Tips Gameweek 19 – 23

Fantasy Football Christmas Tips Gameweek 19 – 23 Welcome to Fantasy Football Christmas Tips Gameweek 19 – 23. Christmas duos continue to be a massive theme from ages past to the modern day. Whether it is Mary and Joseph from the original Christmas story, or Mel and Kim rocking around the Christmas tree or indeed Del Boy and Rodney lighting up our screens, the festive season seems to be full of duos doing their thing. We at FF247 are no different. Earlier this week, Inittowinit and Cookie brought you the Fixtures article and the same combo are back with the Festive Tips article. Due to his his alleged love of a left back, Cookie writes about Keepers and Defenders, while on the back of his GW18 Rooney capo pick and his traditional love of Jon Walters and Jason Puncheon, Init talk...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 16

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 16 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 16. This is the first Tips article by my good self in some months due to me hoodwinking the FF247 lot into thinking that I’ve been busy this autumn! I jest, this is the first proper chance I’ve had to sit and focus solely on fantasy matters for any reasonable amount of time. And right in time for the busy Christmas period. Stars align I guess. And why do I have to follow Bry’s article? I don’t know how to put this across but that’s like someone really poor following someone really brilliant (See? I can’t even example right!) Goalkeepers Thibaut Courtois and David de Gea are the premium picks and unsurprisingly are the two highest point-scoring goalkeepers in the game, although the Spaniard has an almost 20 point le...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13. After the boredom the international break brings, here we are at the start of what is going to be a busy time for Premier League teams – and therefore FPL players alike – as the fixtures are crammed together in the run up to Christmas and New Year. First, of course, are the Champions League games that will see Spurs, Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea and Man United all playing – along with Arsenal and Everton in the Europa League – and so it may be wise to hold off on your purchase until you know the player you want is still fit. And not fainting or being in car crashes. Yes, I’m looking at you, Sergio. Anyway, it turns out Asmir Begovic is heavily into his FPL, believe it or not. It must be ...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 12

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 12 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 12. Before we proceed I must warn you that I’m in a foul mood. What’s new? Well I’ve got a good reason this time. As I write this Ireland are currently playing Denmark in a crucial World Cup play-off and the score is 3-1 to Denmark. Yet the score-line isn’t actually the issue! The problem is that I’m not watching it. Instead I’m listening to it on the radio. Why? I’m in Wales! The hotel I’m staying in does not have Sky and their internet is terrible, meaning I can’t even watch it online. So, as you can see I’ve got good reason to be in a mood. Bank to FPL. Hmmm… this is unlikely to improve my mood. I’ll be honest, I love FPL but this season is really testing my patience so I desperately need a good score this week ...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 11

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 11 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 11. The game-week before an international break is always a tricky one for FPL managers. For some it will be chasing lost points from the week before while for others it may to build on a good week. It’s not really the ideal time to wildcard as many of the players will be travelling near and far over the next fortnight, whilst the most experienced and wise managers will look, if possible, to hold their free transfer this week in order to have two to utilise when the inevitable injuries, rest or rotation occurs when the players arrive back late from international duty. So to write your Tips article is tricky this week – but of course when the chips are down and the difficult questions need answering, FF247 turn to m...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 10. Well, that was a rubbish gameweek, wasn’t it?! With my phone usually buzzing away each gameweek with goal and FPL-related alerts, I wondered if there was something wrong with it on the Saturday as nothing happened! You then hear stories of people who had forgotten to change their team, meaning they hadn’t brought in the likes of Jesus or Morata, kept the captain armband on Kane – having placed it on him before the Bournemouth game – and not done what I did and benched Monreal either. Those are the few managers who will be looking at some serious green arrows right now! Anyway, it’s already a quarter of the way through the season and so let’s see if we can banish the ghouls ahead of the gameweek near...Read More
