Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 18

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 18 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 18. Ok hands up, who’s up for a Premier league winter break? Anyone? No me either. Managers (Premier league ones that is) always seem more vocal around this time of year, bemoaning the hectic festive schedule; it’s like they didn’t bother to check their fixtures at the start of the season, or maybe they did and just figured they’d moan about it at a later date. Whilst it seems crazy to have so many fixtures crammed into such a short space of time, I for one would not have it any other way. Imagine if every Christmas, the Premier league closed down for business for three to four weeks over the festivities? No FPL for a whole month? (cold shudder) It doesn’t bare thinking about really. For t...Read More

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW18

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW18 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW18. Will anyone ever predict the first goal scorer of the game week? Daryl Janmaat scored for Watford and the game week’s first goal, those 5 bonus points remain elusive. Leicester and Man City had the standout score-lines of the week, both teams scoring 4 on the road, City’s was predicted by a few, Leicester not so much. LAST WEEKS WINNERS! A strong showing from the contributors this week with Matt and GP coming top of the pile with 14pts closely followed by Silvers on 13pts. Thanks to everyone who entered, better luck next week everyone! Congrats to Matt and GP, please contact FF247 at contact@fantasyfootball247.co.uk to get your hands on that FF247 t-shirt. Weekly Leaderboard (GW18) Winner = Matt and...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 17

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 17 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 17. The matches are coming thick and fast and provide a great opportunity to continue the momentum of a decent previous game-week or alternatively a chance to recover from a shocker. In whichever camp you find yourself, it’s time to go again and we kick off GW17 with three matches this evening. Burnley get the chance to add to their clean sheet collection as they host Stoke, Watford look to bounce back from last weekend’s loss as they go to Palace while Chelsea have the chance to upset many gambler’s accumulators again as they go to Huddersfield. The majority of matches take place on Wednesday. Big Sam’s bus tour takes him and the Toffees to Newcastle, Southampton host ...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17. A fourth green arrow on the spin, what is the world coming to? Maybe we are doing something right after all! 56 points in GW16 was a decent, if unspectacular, performance – the average was 43, so we’re happy and sees us rise to a ranking of 125,647. Like many, our week was dominated and made by Kane the captain who contributed 24 points. Obviously Salah helped, but then everyone has him, while Begovic’s penalty save at Palace helped him return 8pts. With 43 points out of 56 coming from three players, the less said about the rest the better, but many of you had similar outcomes and can relate. We move onto midweek GW17 with 2 free transfers and 2.1mln in the bank. The ...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 17

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 17 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 17. Four writers. Four different Captain Picks. Four competitive beasts. This smacks of Four Ball time! The heat is on and the testosterone is high. Mito is sweating in the corner, hoping the drug testers don’t notice him. Cookie is primed, ready and waiting to go, and don’t worry he’s been briefed that a left-back is a no go here. Kop is googling the meaning of positive and Init is looking at the rest and simply shaking his head, as usual : We have a 4 ball on the go – one pick each, the best pick wins. Init: Harry Kane vs Brighton (H) You snooze, you lose. Yeah ok, I got the prime pick here. And if you go with one of the other guys you will be in the minority for ...Read More

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW17

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW17 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW17. Another week, another obscure first goal scorer. While most went with a Chelsea player and in most cases a Chelsea win, it was Marco Arnautovic who popped up to disappoint in the Hammers surprise 1-0 victory over Chelsea. Special mention to Swirly who did correctly predict a West Ham win! 8 of the 10 matches finished in a draw or a win by a 1 goal margin, Spurs 5-1 destruction of Stoke (thank you Harry!!) the only standout scoreline. LAST WEEKS WINNERS! Last week there was an administrative error in the counting department, thankfully Coys was very understanding (I bet Mito would have kicked right off) in pointing this out and the error was quickly rectified. I’m assured that no such error will be o...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 16

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 16 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 16. Last week the author of this short article waxed lyrical about the return of ‘The Lord’ and Big Sam. Unfortunately we have no returning greats this week but we doubt you could top those two numpties anyway. Chelsea, yet again, kick off our game-week at lunchtime on Saturday as they visit a West Ham side who have not been revitalised by their new manager. Hardly surprising as it is David Moyes. 3pm on Saturday afternoon brings us five more games. None of which are likely to set pulses racing. Marco ‘you’re not as good as Big Sam’ Silva brings his Watford side to Burnley. Crystal Palace who are unbeaten in their last four at home welcome Bournemouth. Newbies Huddersfield & Brighton face ...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16. 61pts. A green arrow. Our highest overall rank (151,974) of the season since GW1. On the whole we’re pretty happy and there’s nothing we can really moan about but given who’s writing this week’s intro we’ll find something to moan about! While 61pts was quite a decent score it’s worth noting that our captain, Eden Hazard, scored 30 of those points all on his own. Although, after last week’s debacle he had some making up to do! The only other players to contribute any meaningful points were Simpson, Salah & Morata. The rest are in the dog house. Before we move on we should highlight our bench. Let’s just say it’s a bloody good thing that none of them were required this week as ...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

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW16

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW16 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW16. Normal service resumed in GW15 with no majorly surprising results. In terms of the scores, Liverpool’s emphatic 1-5 win away to Brighton was the standout victory, Man City scraped a 2-1 over West Ham with many predicting a landslide victory that never came. Dwight Gayle popped up with the first goal of the GW in Newcastle’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea, proving once again that predicting the first scorer of the GW is actually quite tricky! LAST WEEKS WINNERS! Top spot for the week was shared by MBD, DenPerryDidit and Coys9 with 14pts, everyone’s favourite cock Inittowinit took second place with 13pts, all the more impressive given that he predicted Man City to put 14 past West Ham! Bry and Matt (fix I here...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 16

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 16 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 16. GW15 saw explosive returns for an old Captain Tips favourite Philippe Coutinho. His goal and 3 assists playing an integral part in Liverpool’s demolition of Brighton. Not that he didn’t get any help though, Mo Salah chipped in with an assist of his own, and Roberto Firmino continued to bemuse non-owners with 2 goals in what has proved to be a frustratingly unpredictable campaign. Perhaps the biggest story of the past two gameweeks has been Jesse Lingard’s 3 goals and 3 assists, proving to be an unexpected bargain basement route into Man Utd and showing form worthy of captaincy. Well, steady on. For now. The most likely source of points, and a captaincy poster boy, did...Read More

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 16

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 16 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 16. And sort of GW17 too. And sort of GW18 also! The reason we say this is because there is another midweek feast of games coming up straight after GW16. We may only just be into December but the silly season is clearly in full swing already. And to prove it here is your fun fact of the day: between GW16 beginning this Saturday and GW22 ending on the 3rd of January there are 26 calendar days. On 17 of those there is a Premier League game occuring. There are only 9 days without one. Rotation, anyone? Just as a bit of housekeeping, before we get into the nuts and bolts of the article itself, we will have your usual full raft of articles this week prior to GW16 kicking off on Saturday – F...Read More
