Fantasy Football Fixtures

The first FPL article of the week that looks forward to the up and coming gameweek is the Fantasy Football Fixtures article, where we sort through which Premier League clubs have the easiest and hardest looking fantasy premier league fixtures for the short-term and thus enable managers to construct their FPL squads and think over transfers accordingly.

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 12

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 12 Everyone loves an out of position defenfder, especially so when he score two goals. And also keeps a ‘clean sheet’. Unless you don’t own him of course. In which case; everyone hates an out of position defender who…. ‘Lundy’, as he’s affectionately known by his admirers (owners), or ‘FFS’, as he’s less afectionately known by his (now) suitors, probably did make or break many a GW. You’re either loving or hating this intro already, depending on which camp you were in. The worst camp to be in though was the one that owned him but benched him. And it’d be a bitter pill to swallow for sure but also leads nicely in to why we do a ‘Fixtures Analysis’ article at all; Bu...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 11

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 11 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 11. This weekend was all about Leicester. The Friday night fixture is often an insipid affair. To say this week’s game was an exception would be an understatement. The red-carded Ryan Bertrand quite impressively managed to notch up a score of -6. If I was better at FPL research I could have told you if it is the lowest total ever. It must be close though. Ayoze Pérez’s hat-trick saw him rack up a quite special 20 points and his first decent tally of the season. We knew he would be a good pick at the start of the season, just not at the start of the season! Jamie Vardy and Ben Chilwell also registered excellent scores with 20 and 19 points, respectively. Meanwhile, one of my defen...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 10. Has anyone seen FPL? You know, the game we all love and hate in equal measures, the high scores, dramatic shifts in ranks, mega captain hauls etc. Sure, pre-deadline it still feels like FPL, captain procrastination, mulling over that -4 you know won’t pay off, but no sooner has the deadline passed the imposter who bears all the signs of the game we know (and love) rears it’s head once more. Sub 40pts game week averages, captain fails, rest, rotation you name it, they all combine to provide a user experience that can at best be described as ‘meh’. GW8 was a miserable letdown, ‘it’s a one-off’ and ‘these game weeks happen’ we proclaimed, of course, normal service will be resumed in GW9 rig...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 9 As we fast approach the middle of yet another international break, the transfers have slowed down, thoughts are wondering elsewhere with the Rugby World Cup and international friendlies and it’s fair to say fantasy football has taken a back seat. The hacking of FPL accounts even seems to have been put on hold. Step forward DCI Coleen Rooney and Rebekah “I’m a celebrity, get me out of this awkwardness” Vardy for a dose of entertainment that you just can’t help but find interesting or hilarious. Or both. Much like Love Island, many people have put it out there that they aren’t remotely engrossed in the storyline but, deep down, we know it’s more a case of “The lady doth protest too much”. As Pam from Gavin and Stacey said, “It’s all the drama, Mic...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8. As we enter the final game week before the second international break I find myself scratching my head after another poor score and yet another (I’ve got 5 in total) red arrow. As ever I look for the positives, and whilst I can’t find any In my FPL side, I will take my switch to this weeks fixtures article (from last weeks tips) as an ideal opportunity to scholar-up on which teams I should be targeting in the coming weeks. So If like me your game-week has been less than satisfactory, join me in pretending it never happened and look to start afresh come GW8. I have made a point of omitting Manchester City this week, their fixtures are good, you already have their players, you don’t need me ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 7. “If you never do anything differently, you’ll reduce your chances of enjoying lucky accidents.” Those are the words of Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman of Ogilvy UK, albeit it in a different context. Putting John Lundstram in your starting 11 would seem to support his assertion. I’ll tell you why I’ve decided today that I disagree with Mr Sutherland’s opinion later on (at least in the FPL context)! The FPL community has had to endure a security breach this weekend. Liam Neeson wannabe and all-round hardman FPL Chef was issuing threats to his attacker. Fear not though, Swedish hacker – he is unwilling to travel beyond the Leeds ring road. I am intrigued to know what sort of a person can even ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 6

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 6 When Rosco wrote the Fixtures article last week, he mentioned that he was ranked at 1.7 million in the game. Well, I’m currently ranked at 1.5 million – so that should tell you a couple of things. First off, I’m reasonably better at this game than Rosco. Now this isn’t something I’d normally brag about, but he brought up the rankings, and I had to follow suit. Second thing you need to know is that between his rank of 1.7 million and mine, at a much more respectable 1.5 million, the owners of this site have really pulled out all the stops to provide you with the best minds for fantasy analysis possible. Now granted, they don’t ask me to write any actual tips for buying/selling players, and I can’t really be trusted with captaincy issues ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 5

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 5 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 5. 1.7 million. If this figure represented my bank balance or my home value I’d be a happy chap. However, the only thing 1.7 million represents is my current FPL rank. It’s bad. My worst rank to date. I took the liberty of calculating my points had I left my GW1 team untouched. Had I done that my rank would have been 40k. Ouch. A three-week hiatus from FPL and football, in general, resulted in bad decisions, a pointless wildcard and a whole lot of regret. On the plus side, I’ve got a cracking tan In my GW1 captain’s article, I discussed how we frequently over complicate FPL, wise words, if only I practised what I preached.  Init asked me to keep it upbeat this week, the above may sound ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 4

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 4 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 4. Now most of you will probably know that I am one half (third) of Harry and Lloyd and if you still don’t know who Harry and Lloyd are… then I can’t help you! This week I have decided to fully embrace the moniker of Dumb and Dumber as I haven’t the foggiest idea what I’m going to write and which teams I am going to suggest. The reason behind this is I have only returned from coaching ‘soccer’ in America, I haven’t seen any pre-season, I have only watched one or two Premier League games and I have barely got the chance to get on the site and chat to you lovely people. Someone tell me why I am writing this article again? Oh, that’s right I am one of the young ones who has lots of spare t...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 3

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 3 Batman & Robin, Ant & Dec, Simon & Garfunkel, Goldman & Sachs, Hale & Pace, Carragher & Neville, Morecambe & Wise, Salt & Vinegar, Laurel & Hardy….. Init & Cookie. Whenever you see this duo on Fixtures duty it usually means that someone has let us down at the last minute. And that is the case here. We are nice people though and don’t name and shame the guilty. On another completely and unrelated note we’d just like to wish AT all the best on his last minute holiday. We sincerely hope your plane doesn’t crash in a ball of flames. Most great double acts have a strange yet strong bond… Irreverent, yet distinguished, site member Raz (pretty sure he will read that as R...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2 With a new season comes new challenges, new head to heads, new faces, new prospects. And VAR. In the case of the latter, that has already shaped a couple of matches, making the outcomes less predictable. Will it be an improvement or will it be another idea that gets consigned to the scrap heap? I’m sure Wolves’ Leander Dendoncker has a stronger opinion on it now than he did before the weekend, as his winner was ruled out and gifted inverted commas to became a ‘winner’. The technology has certainly split opinion since its inception, much like whether Jaffa Cakes are cakes or biscuits and whether black pudding is acceptable to have with your breakfast. Spoiler: it’s not. So, staying on the fo...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 1 It seems an age away that we watched Man City clinch the league at Brighton in May, but however you have spent your summer thus far, it’s almost time to stop the tinkering and make some firm decisions for the new season. With just days to go until the deadline bell for GW1 rings and gets the 2019/20 season underway, we kick off our usual set of weekly articles with a look at Fixtures – who is hot, who is not and an extra GW1 supplement as we snapshot each remaining team. Favourable Fixtures Liverpool – Norwich (H), Southampton (a), Arsenal (H) The fixture generator has again been kind to Liverpool as they attempt to win their first Premier League. An opening trip to Anfield on Friday evening is not the start that Norwich would have dreamed...[Read More]
