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 31

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 31 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 31. Agreeing to write an article for Gameweek 31 is making me feel a little bit like the Birmingham City ‘fan’ who punched Jack Grealish on Sunday afternoon; a mug. As I set about planning for this article, two issues became clear early on: (1) we won’t even know the full set Gameweek 32 fixtures until after Gameweek 31 deadline, and (2) we won’t even know the full set of Gameweek 33 fixtures until after the Gameweek 31 deadline. Given that we usually look at the upcoming three gameweeks, those two issues make this article – for want of a better word – bullsh*t. Undeterred, I have tried to come up with a way of making this article useful despite its speculative foundation. As such, I have sp...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30. There was a line in a movie once, a real classic you might have seen called “Demolition Man”. You remember that movie? Stallone was a superstar playing a cop in the future, and instead of trying to channel any of the great acting he’d done earlier in his career, he basically just copy/pasted his persona from Tango and Cash into every scene and collected his paycheck. But he did have a quote in that movie that applies to my participation in today’s article: “Send a maniac to catch a maniac.” Great stuff. Why does that quote, of any movie quote I could’ve chosen, apply to today’s article? Because the powers that be here at HQ looked at the current tracker and decided that FPL is on the pre...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 27. As 16 of the possible 20 teams have fixtures this gameweek, there could be some contrasts in fortune between FPL players, as the split between those who have and haven’t prepared for this situation becomes apparent. That’s what I – and a good few others – will hope for, anyway, as this brutal season gets into the last third. Yes, you read that right, there is only 33 per cent of this campaign to go – and what a crucial time it will be too, as we try and weigh up when to use our remaining chips and wildcard to make the most of the double and blank gameweeks that are on the horizon. Whilst Man City, Brighton, Chelsea and Everton are not in action this weekend, the next round of gaps, Gamew...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 26

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 26. First of all, if you had him, congratu-flippin’-lations. If you didn’t, I’m sorry for bringing this up. You’ve probably been peppered with group chat messages from that smug arse in your mini-league that only went and triple captained him. You’ve probably been on Twitter and seen cringey attempts at not gloating about triple-digit scores. And now, you’ve probably come here to turn your attention to Gameweek 26 and forget all about Gameweek 25 only to see Rosco bleating about deciding not to captain him. Me too. I haven’t even mentioned his name yet. I don’t really need to because we all know who I’m on about. What’s most annoying is that every man and his dog told Rosco to captain Aguero...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 24

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 24 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 24. It would be remiss of us not to begin a Fixtures Article by touching on the inevitable blank / double game-weeks that are soon to loom on our FPL horizon. As we speak the only things confirmed in this respect are that the GW27 game between Everton & Man City is almost certainly OFF and that either the game between Burnley & Spurs or Chelsea & Brighton will definitely be OFF that week, depending on Thursday night’s result, due to the Milk Cup Final being on the same weekend. When they will be replayed is another matter altogether, and we will shall find that out in due course. We could spend much time, and many words, speculating as to when they may be scheduled but i...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 23

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 23 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 23. Hey all, it’s Guy – reporting once again from the Colonies. Funny thing about being in the States right now, our government is shut down – but the internet still works. So I guess that means I have no excuse not to do my part and write this article on the upcoming fixtures. But I’m writing it a bit differently this week. Maybe it’s the new year, maybe it’s seeing Everton win a game… I don’t know. But I want to elaborate a bit more on the Best Bets this week. On the Teams to Avoid section, I’ll keep that short and sweet, no need to elaborate on those teams to the point of exhaustion, right? Why kick them while they’re down? So in the effort to be more positive, I’ll use ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 22

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 22 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 22. Christmas is officially over and we’re back in the routine of having to wait longer than two days before the next FPL deadline. Well, I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year and that Father Christmas brought you some merry green arrows. Speaking from my own perspective, I must have been a very good boy in 2018 as I moved up from 705k in Gameweek 18 to the 285k rank I now have. But it’s not all about me! I’ve been joined in this article by the site’s big boss, Inittowinit, who has offered thoughts on the weeks ahead for his own team, Everton, along with Newcastle, the club our long-suffering Geordie Rosco loves with every part of his body. The FA Cup third round has seen surprisingl...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 18

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 18. Whether you had a good gameweek, a mediocre one or just, plain simply, had a terrible time, do not fear because Christmas is fast approaching! I’ll be honest, with me sitting at around 850,000 as a rank, any distraction is welcome – though there is the hope many will be so engrossed in the festivities they will forget about it and I can take advantage by taking my mediocre-at-best team up in the rankings! Not that anyone on here would overlook the deadlines, I’m sure. So excited am I, in fact, I’ve taken a look at the final verse of the 12 days of Christmas and given it an FPL refurbishment as we look ahead to the favourable and not so decent fixtures for teams. So, without further ado, ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 17

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 17 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 17. GW16 was the round of action that determined whether or not your team made it into the annual FPL Cup competition. Some of you lost faith in Mo Salah, and there are more than a few readers here that may fail to even qualify for the Cup as a result. If this describes your situation, I have this quote to offer you: “If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.” ― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept. Take these words to heart. Embrace the pain that comes from shunning Salah. Embrace it, know it, and then le...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 14. I come bearing bad news. When I first started writing for this site, I was mocked by some for writing books instead of articles. Too often the mind would wander and the pen would go with it. This became all too real last week when somebody actually fell asleep reading an article on this site! It hit too close to home; it is probably only by mere fortune that (hopefully!) none of my articles has triggered a state of drowsiness. With this in mind, and verbosity banished to the naughty step, I bring to you Fixtures for Gameweek 14, with no fewer than eight teams to talk about. I guess old habits really do die hard. Sorry if you fall asleep. Before diving into it, I feel it necessary to have...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 13

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 13 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 13. And welcome back to your usual FPL articles again ahead of GW13 as we finally put the pesky International Breaks behind us once and for all for 2018 and concentrate on a prolonged period of GW’s which will see us go uninterrupted all the way through to GW21 now. Man City vs Liverpool fittingly sees us out on the 3rd January after we’ve basically done nine GW’s in about five and a bit (actual) weeks. It’s going to be intense and hectic and it often sorts out the serious FPL players from the casuals, a bit. The main ‘madness’ of GW’s falling all over each other doesn’t actually start until about GW18, although we do have a mid-week one in GW1...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 12

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 12 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 12. This last weekend saw Man City run rampant and return to the top of the table, Liverpool and Arsenal battle out a tough match earning a share of the spoils and fellow title contenders Chelsea smash Crystal Palace. It is all tight at the top, but City are looking a level above the rest as we all knew anyway, and this should stay the same all-season long. KDB has been announced as injured again but this does not seem a problem for the absolutely stacked City team who had Sterling grab 2 goals and 2 assists so De Bruyne who? I won’t say too much more here other than the fixtures this week were kind of difficult to pick as there were some teams that had nice ones but are in terrible form, so...[Read More]
