FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12 The Men Who Stare at Goats Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12. It’s game-weeks such as GW11 that puts a smile on your face and makes FPL seem like an enjoyable pastime. 90pts gave us our highest game-week rank (98,245th) of the season as well as our biggest green arrow of the season and our highest OR of the season. We now sit 45,819th. There were solid performances from each area of our squad but it was the defence who stole the show. The one and only, John Lundstram, stole the show with 21pts. Caglar Soyuncu returned an impressive 14 pts while Lucas Digne chipped in with 6pts. In midfield there were returns from John McGinn and Sadio Mane who vindicated our decision to sell Mo Salah. Up top there were returns for Abraham, Jimenez and Ag...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW35 Free Hit Special

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW35 Free Hit Special Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW35 Free Hit Special. We’ve taken a slightly different approach to our usually formulaic Site Team article this week, and this is why… Rather than deluge you with all sorts of different Tips and Captain Picks this week we thought it may be wiser to (almost) let the elongated DGW34 play out to its natural conclusion and then come in with a (relatively) simple look at GW35. Just in case you’ve been under a rock or something GW35 is also known as Blank GW35 as there are only 6 fixtures this week. Just to be completely prescriptive then the 6 fixtures, or 12 teams involved, are as follows – If this comes as some sort of a surprise to you… then said rock may be y...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 29

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 29 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 29. It’s dawned on us this week that we’ve been bloody consistent this season. Consistently average! We haven’t had an overall rank in the millions but nor have we had a 5 digit one either. We’ve basically settled into a pattern of floating around the 200k mark. Statistically this puts us in the top 4%. Realistically, it’s not really quite where we want to be. Are we just being too safe? Do we not take the (odd) risks that one maybe would on their own team if it wasn’t so public? Perhaps. Well, we’ve thrown the shackles off this week and gone bat sh!t wild! We haven’t really, of course, but that’s how a certain decision was presented to...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 30 It seems like an age ago, but it’s time to quickly reflect on the performance of the FF247 team in GW29 before moving onto our transfer plans for GW30. If you remember we took a hit last week due to Eden Hazard’s injury and it worked out ok as our new recruit Josh King weighed in with a late assist in Bournemouth’s win over Swansea – the fact he was awarded 2bps made it all the more sweeter. The week turned out well – we scored 76pts, net 72 after the hit compared to the average of 47, which resulted in another green arrow – we now stand at 39,396. Like many teams, the highlight was Captain Romelu, who like King, left it late but delivered an assist and then two injury time goals for a 16pt haul, doubled to 32. ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 26

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 26 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 26 article. A small green arrow was delivered to our doorstep by the FPL stork after a GW25 score of 58 – this compares to the average of 47, so it was ok, nothing special but a win is a win and we’ll take it. Captain Zlatan let us down, missing numerous good chances to score, he should have had at least a brace but we had to accept his assist. His main competitor for the armband, Alexis, obviously rubbed out noses in it with a brace, slightly fortuitously, but a brace and maximum bonus points to boot for a 15pt return. Clean sheets for Cech, Coleman and Pieters were boosted by either bonus points or save points for the trio. All the rest of the crowd were 2 pointers except Kyle Walker who did...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25 article. Last week for most was defined by whether you owned Lukaku or not. We didn’t. Those that did saw a lovely score, those that captained him are probably still out celebrating. Or getting over the shock of a Rom cap actually paying off. Our score of 57 was above average but brought a red arrow, we lost 7k places and now sit in 39,047th place. For once our midfield let us down, no goals, no assists, nothing. Fortunately our defenders and strikers delivered – clean sheets for Walker and Nyom and an assist for Coleman were valuable additions to the goals of Zlatan and new recruit Carroll. The highlight was Defoe’s brace, the ‘fossil’ as one of our number ref...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 23

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 23 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 23 article. After a run of four successive green arrows, GW23 bucked the trend as we went Code Red with a score of 48pts, 2 better than the average but not enough to help our rank which fell to 31,908 from 24,291. Still, not a shocker by any stretch of the imagination. It was Alexis who rescued our game-week as his injury-time penalty secured him 16pts – of course we were lucky in that Giroud and Ozil were off the pitch, hence Alexis taking the penalty. The only other contributions of note were an assist and 2bpts for Kyle Walker, a clean sheet for the still alive Allan-Romeo Nyom and an assist for Erik Pieters. All the rest took the week off, so fully rested we are expecting great thing...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 20

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]

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 Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 12

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 12 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 12 article. Oh dear, 4 points below the average last week with 48 in total in what turned out to be a bit of a disaster all round with key players being rested (Sterling) and others coming up with minus points (Holebas, -2, thanks). And with both him and Smith getting themselves suspended for this week we are in a bit of a mess all of a sudden! Last week our entire defence scored just 5 points, Firmino saved our midfield blushes, and probably our gameweek with 15 but the other 3 mids got us just 7. Up top Austin and Kun pitched in with a goal each but in all it just wasn’t good enough. Overall we fell a good few places and currently find ourselves in 64,574th place, a fall of approximate...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 8 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 8 article. GW7 turned out ok for us in the end despite Captain Alexis failing to do anything bar keep a clean sheet at Burnley. In a low scoring week which saw the average muster just 42pts, we totalled 52pts which resulted in a second successive green arrow and a rise in the rankings to 60,865. Firmino was our best performer with a 12pt cameo at Swansea, while Lukaku started off the game-week well with a goal and 2bps on the Friday night. Clean sheets for Cech and Walker and an assist and 2bps for Holebas were the only other contributors with Aguero, Rashford, Capoue, Sterling and Evans all failing to deliver. Before we proceed we should add a massive thanks to DMC for providing us with a bonu...[Read More]

FF247 Site Team Game-week 4 FPL Tips

FF247 Site Team Game-week 4 FPL Tips Welcome to the FF247 Site Team Game-week 4 FPL Tips article. It seems a long time ago, but GW3 turned out ok for us, not spectacular, but ok. We scored 53 points vs an average of 42. That leaves us on 194 points so far with an overall rank of 22,450. As for the team itself last week we left McAuley points on the bench, for the 3rd week in a row! Lesson learnt? Clearly not and I think we can all predict what will happen this week, when/if we play him. At least we had Foster in goal and his clean sheet contributed – in fact only Souare let us down at the back as Valencia and Baines scored 16pts between them despite Baines missing a penalty. Hazard’s goal and maximum bonus points gave him 11pts while a Lamela assist was our only other scoring c...[Read More]
