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 23

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 23 Well hello there! My first article proper of 2020. I find myself in an optimistic frame of mind despite my FPL woes of late. This week I’m tasked with surveying the fixtures and telling you who, in my humble opinion, you should be focusing your attention on. However, like the million or so VAR decisions that dominated (ruined) the fixtures in GW22, you should take such things as favourable fixtures with a pinch of salt. For every Man U v Norwich, there’s a Leicester v Southampton just waiting to upset the apple cart. I digress. By proxy Liverpool and West Ham are the two teams with the best fixtures given that they both have an extra fixture over the next 3 game weeks. Liverpool has the best fixtures regardless of opposition, and outside DGW24 ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 22

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 22 Happy New Year, everybody. Who would’ve thought that the first FPL article this decade would’ve been penned by a Yank? That’s a nice piece of trivia to carry with you until 2030 when we look back at the Roaring 20’s. But it doesn’t matter where the writers for these articles are from – what matters is that we all come together, at least once a week, and partake in a crazy game like FPL. Sure, we’re starting a new decade, but the world at large is more of the same it seems. We have Australia on fire, WWIII memes are everywhere…it’s crazy out there. But somewhere in the midst of all that craziness, we center ourselves in some hobby like this. We could all get bogged down with the bad news all over the TV, or we could collectively get ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 18

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixtures Gameweek 18. With Christmas just around the corner, I can thankfully rely on the writers of upcoming articles to bring the festive spirit and cheer. All you get here is my half-baked attempt at bringing Christmassy joy to your screens. Unfortunately, this article has not been ‘oven-ready’ for weeks so you will have to hope that my fantasy team fares considerably better on Sunday – whilst I am writing this article – than it did on Saturday, otherwise my inner Ebenezer might come out. Edit: I took out Kevin de Bruyne for Jack Grealish… I made the trip to Wigan this weekend to watch Huddersfield Town take on the Latics in what can only be described as a game of two halves. Literally – nothing happened other tha...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 17

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 17 Well, it’s finally happened: I don’t have to include a Liverpool write-up in the Fixtures article because they only have 2/3 of a schedule here coming up. Both Liverpool and West Ham will have a blank in GW18 – which does mean the MLS fanboys will come out in force to praise the ‘DGW’ in the near future… but that’s neither here nor there at the moment. So, for now, I’m legally obligated to NOT include them here, at least that’s what I gathered from the fine print in my contract. I am however obligated to provide a qualifying statement that Liverpool are good enough to score three rounds worth of fantasy points in just two games. So there’s your asterisk (*). And I really needed that break from Liverpool inclusion. I’ve had a rough t...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures! Well, this week was fun, to say the least! City and Chelsea played out a decent battle, Liverpool remain nine points clear even if VAR dominated the game once again, and then Man United nicked a draw against the mighty Sheffield United. This weekend was also dominated by the sack race heating up, with Spurs getting a new manager and leaving Mauricio Pochettino a free man. It seems all owners are getting an itchy trigger finger and I don’t think it will take much to spark a manager merry-go-round. This article will look at some abysmal sides and some top sides who a lot of people don’t have much stake in but this could change, and if you are going to grab any player from these teams, now would be the tim...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 13

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 13 Today is a good day. Disney+ came out today, and I’ve been watching classic cartoons from my early childhood all morning. This isn’t an ad for Disney, I’m just trying to let you into my frame of mind right now. I’m in a genuinely good mood. Who knew I needed to see some classic Daffy Duck again? Just watching Daffy beat his nephews for no good reason really took me back to a simpler time, a better time. And then I knew I had to sit down to write this article and praise Liverpool and trash on Everton for a bit. Oh well, maybe when I’m done writing this article, I’ll watch Dumbo’s mom get whipped and then watch Bambi’s mom die. Surely that will be more cheerful than having to put Liverpool up on a pedestal once more. FPL FIXTURE TRACKER But first...[Read More]

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]
