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 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

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 21

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 21 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 21. Let me begin with wishing all our loyal and active site members and readers a Happy New Year. Hope you were all surrounded by your dear and near ones as we all ushered the beginning of 2017. But that shouldn’t deter us from what we have been religiously doing since the beginning of August, with half of the season behind US and the games coming thick and fast with a few international breaks here and there, it becomes of utmost importance how you and me target the second half of the season. For some it might be to top their own private leagues or for some it might be to do a personal best in overall rankings. With our 2nd wildcard now play now, it would be much more important t...Read More

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 21

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 21 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 21. After an extended writing break due to the congested schedule, it looks like we can all get back to business as normal. And to kick off said business, we have to look at the best (and worst) schedules coming up. This obviously isn’t completely cut and dry, we are now in the middle of the transfer window – so teams that look a certain way now could certainly improve their lot with a few savvy moves in the coming weeks. And we also have the Africa Cup of Nations depleting several rosters of key players. I’m not sure if AFCON or the MLS gives a bigger middle finger to the norms of global football, but Africa calling up all of their best players in the middle of the season always strikes me as a truly crap th...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 2 The Striker Conundrum

FPL Ramblings Part 2 The Striker Conundrum Welcome to FPL Ramblings Part 2 The Striker Conundrum: What to do? Who to buy? But… if I sell him, I just know it is going to come back to haunt me. If I get this other guy, what happens if the other top striker goes off?! I am afraid of Aguero, but Costa has been so consistent. How about Zlatan? He is on fire right now. There is also some fella named Harry that pops up and gets some nice points for managers. What to do? Well, sometimes FPL is about gut feel. Sure you can lean on the stats and go with the majority in many cases, but this might not be one of those moments. The top 4 strikers (when fit or not kicking David Luiz) have made this difficult. We also can’t overlook the cheaper options. Because they have also caused us to doub...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

Live Match Chat Gameweek 20 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 20 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 20 FPL News: We hope you enjoyed your 17 hours free from FPL and football in general! Yes, you read it right, GW19 ended last night and GW20 starts this morning. Now if that doesn’t smack of rotation then we don’t know what does. Obviously the teams are spread out in some sort of equal ‘ish’ fashion but there is also the issue of having so little time that some injuries will not be reported on. It’s a bit hit and hope in that respect at this time of year and so the team sheets will be eagerly anticipated and we begin at 12.30pm with ‘Boro hosting Leicester, followed by four 3pm games and today ends with Man united visiting West Ham. Tuesday evening see three games, before our week a...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 20 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 20 article. Last time we spoke to you, all of about two days ago, we were in a bit of a pickle and quite frankly a bit stumped and very uninspired by our options. 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 w...Read More

Live Match Chat Gameweek 19 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 19 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 19 FPL News: We hope you enjoyed your one day off from football because that’s it now until the 4th January! Seriously. We don’t recommend you tell the loved one this, or indeed the wife, but you can kick back and relax now knowing that there are potentially FPL points up for grabs every single day of the holiday. It’s so intense that GW19 ends on Sunday at about 6pm and GW20 begins at 11.30pm on Monday! Given the obvious lack of time between those we won’t have any help articles up between those two but everybody will be around as usual to help with team questions and queries so feel free to pepper the chat below with those. As for the gameweek itself we begin with a single game this evening a...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 19

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 19 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 19 article. After two poor weeks in a row we finally had some luck and posted a decent score of 76 to get us back on track and that leaves us at 64,823 overall. Well, we say luck, there’s nothing better than a successful FPL transfer decision and one that brings you 30 points is to be rejoiced! Last week we culled Kane and brought in Zlatan and captained him. Suffice to say the big man didn’t disappoint. And we won’t lie, we had a wry smile when Kane missed his penalty. Game-weeks hang on such fine margins at times. So Zlatan was obviously our bedrock but we saw decent returns elsewhere too, notably from Pedro who we had hung onto more in hope than anticipation as he had miss...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19. Welcome to the Captain Picks article for Gameweek 19. Firstly, let me say Merry Christmas to all of you, and I hope you are busy stuffing your bellies full with Christmas food and beer, enjoying the holidays with your families. While food and family are the best things of Christmas time, we all know the second best thing: the busy Premier League schedule, giving us three rounds of festive football in one week. As we all know, a certain Argentinian is coming back from suspension this GW, so let me put one thing straight right away – I will not be tipping Aguero in this article. This is for a number of reasons: he has a tough matchup against Liverpool, City are struggling at the mome...Read More
