Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 1

The International break is here and it is of course time for another edition of Bore Off! As ever during the international break we take the time to catch up with some of our site regulars, ask them how their seasons are going and get their thoughts on some key issues that we all want answers to. And then of course ask them some stupid questions that we all really don’t want answers to but are too intrigued to look away. Joining us for part 1 of this double header are Rosco, Swirly and Matt. Thanks for taking the time out to answer our questions guys. Over to you…


Thanks for reading Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18. Part 1. This article was compiled by Inittowinit and Mito21

    Great read thanks – makes the international break almost bearable.

    Here’s an idea I’m toying with. Does anyone else think that doubling up on Burnley defence is an option? They have 3 of the top four VFM defenders with only Jones breaking their stranglehold there, and having looked into it they have 8 games left against top 6 opponents, with six of those being home games. Chances are one of them would sit on the bench most weeks but the option is there to double up for some fixtures.

      Wouldn’t be opposed to say Pope and Mee.

      • Red Robbo says:

        That would work, though I was thinking Mee and Lowton as I have DDG, and Pope will likely lose his spot whenever Heaton returns. That’s just personal preference though in the way I want to plan, which basically involves avoiding any defensive transfers if possible – and Burnley I could happily hold for the season unless something drastic happens to their defensive form.

        I posted a possible WC last night – don’t know yet if I’ll do it this week or in a few more – depends on the Sterling/Kane injuries – but defence would be:

        Azpi/Jones/Mee/Lowton/AN Other

        • inittowinit says:

          That certainly works. Only said Pope as every time I put on the radio or TV when they are playing he seems to have made yet another miracle save! Just looked and he has 9 save bonus in 7 games. In 4 of those he was 1 off getting another so could easily have been 13 in 7. He’s 3rd top for overall saves already too, on 37, having only started since GW5.

          But yeah, depends on Heaton. He’s still listed as no return date. Was an op though so could be a while.

        • Red Robbo says:

          I would have Pope myself if I hadn’t decided on the DDG strategy for this season. I have a disastrous record with cheaper keepers in FPL – in fact, If I did have Pope he’d be conceding three a game so to all those that do, you have me to thank for not buying him :D

          Cheers for the input Initt – nice to know it doesn’t sound completely crazy. I might yet do it, but not until I use the wildcard.

        • inittowinit says:

          I’d certainly be along the same lines in terms of defence if I was WC’ing – double Utd and Burnley – one being a keeper.

    Hey guys. Great read cheers. I’ll either do A Davies and Davis to Lowton and richarlison or
    B Davies and rosenior to Lowton and Francis.
    Either option for a hit. Thanks chaps.

    It might still pay off with ten men, that’s what I’m trying to decide.

    Which of Daniels or Ward? Both have good fixtures ( daniels little better) and same value at moment?

    Well done to the three amigos this turn. That was a fantastic read. I lreally enjoy hearing how FPL players would improve the game with new rules/chip ideas etc.

    Can’t wait til tonight’s one as well. Love hearing the thoughts of you guys so please continue to step up for these and let the guys know if you can do one for the next international break etc. Hope I’m not speaking out of turn here with that, I may be being selfish there :)
