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.

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 10

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 10 I’ll be honest I was finding it easier to pick out teams with unfavourable fixtures, rather than favourable ones for this week’s article. Not sure if teams are so bad the fixtures are looking terrible to me or if I’m just morphing into Kop! I seem to be getting more pessimistic by the second this season so yeah… I’ll just say Kop’s influence has worn me down. Coming back from an international break where Ireland played another three games and still didn’t score, Salah decided kissing and hugging loads of people at a wedding in the middle of a pandemic was a good idea, and another load of players got injured. Do you really need to question why I’m becoming a pessimist yet? FIFA really need to have a rethink about these international games and why they are even going...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 9

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 9 Half-term report Ok, so we aren’t even a quarter of the way through yet but in England they call it ‘half-term’ in October (albeit it is now November but who is keeping count anymore), and they do it again in February, go figure. So with that sort of clever math we are calling it that too. Rather than waffle on about a few select teams we have decided to have a quick (ish) one-liner (or two) about how we feel each term is progressing so far. And in the process we have ordered them into some sort of fashion in relation to their next three fixtures. FPL FIXTURE TRACKER But first up that all important Fixture Tracker itself… FIXTURE TRACKER LINK FIXTURE TRACKER 2020/21 Good Fixtures Aston Villa – Brighton (H), West Ham (A), Newcastle (H) V...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 8

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 8 How time flies, eh? Just over a year ago, I remember my Gameweek 9 article reflecting on numerous FPL accounts hacked and the ‘Wagatha Christie’ famous tussle between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy, around the same time as the latter’s husband was contributing with three goals in the 9-0 rout of Southampton. Fast forward to now and the positive is that I now have a kitten trying to walk over the keyboard as I type this, though it gets dark at 5pm, it’s raining and howling a gale, it looks like there’s more time to spend at home and there’s longer to wait until any fans are allowed back in stadia. Still, all good things come to those who wait, huh? That reminds me, I must enjoy a pint of the black stuff in a pub before Thursday. So, as we look forward to the fixture...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis GW7

FPL Fixtures Analysis GW7 When FF247 checked my readiness for writing this Fixtures article, I realized that I’ve been put on a 10-day straight work schedule coming up on Monday. You know, during a pandemic that’s ramping up all over the States, working 10 days straight is EXACTLY what a person wants to do, right? Ever the gentleman, Adam (Init to you) gave me permission to just bin the article this week and focus on work – but I’ve done enough of these articles over the years that I thought I could probably churn something out on a lazy Sunday whilst sipping on something poured on the rocks. And if that didn’t work, I figured I could always grab a throwback and get some DayQuil into my system to push this article to the finish line. Long story short, Adam gave me an out, but I decli...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 6

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 6 When I first realised I was writing Fixtures this week my initial thought was ‘what’s the point’. That’s not me being petty or dismissive, more a genuine consideration given the results over the opening 5 game weeks. The two constants for any FPL manager – form and fixtures, no longer seem quite so important. Take West Ham as a case in point. They lose their opening two fixtures; at home to Newcastle and away to the Gunners, so we conclude they are out of form, right? Their fixtures in Game week’s 3 and 4 (home to Wolves and away to Leicester) looked like ‘bad’ fixtures so logically we should avoid them but they win both, score 7, conceding 0. Normality seemingly returned as they headed towards a 3-0 defeat to Spurs at the weekend, only for them to score 3 in ...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 5

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 5 WTAF?! You’ll have to excuse a few profanities in the intro here but I’m sure you’ve all uttered similar enough recently, and for similar reasons, so here we go: Right then, what is it you actually want to know? You want to know who has good fixtures and who has bad ones, yeah? Well… how the f*ck am I supposed to know when Man Utd concede 6 at home, Liverpool get beaten 2-7 by Aston Villa, Leicester look like world beaters by sticking 5 past Man City and then back it up by getting stuffed 0-3 at home to f*cking West Ham. How on earth am I supposed to write a normal and sensible ‘fixtures guide’ on the back of all that?! Good question…. That tweet from GNev2 probably summed it all up (although it needs context), but crack on we shall and I’ll ...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 4

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 4 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Gameweek 4. I think it’s probably in all of our interests if we just move on from Gameweek 3 like it never happened. Like a petulant child, let’s not give it the attention it so clearly craves. Last week, Matt trialled Boris’s new rule of three before it gets rolled out to the masses: “Avoid, Avoid, Avoid”. It would probably be more effective, in all honesty. More effective than “Hands, Face, Space”, whose similarity to the popular children’s song with a conflicting message is its problem; it’s only when I get to the third “body part” that I realise I’ve messed up again, having enthusiastically rubbed my germy hands together and slapped them onto my face. No, “Avoid, Avoid, Avoid” conveys a much clearer message and can be applied to all manne...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 3

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 3 We all knew deep down that this was going to be a weird ‘ol season, for one reason or another. GW’s 1 & 2 have sort of confirmed this. We’ve had goals galore: some from expected sources, some from those less so. We’ve seen a host of players deliver in GW1 and then a different cast appear in GW2. Salah, Son, Mane and Zaha are all prime examples of this new phenom. Those who didn’t have Salah for GW1 suddenly found themselves wanting Son for GW3 instead, probably via some Bruno merry-go-round. Wish lists have been written, scrapped and re-written more times than Raz tells us he’s missed the deadline #zomg Writing a fixtures article at the start of the season might seem easy but I see it as walking through a minefield. Looking a...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2 By the time that you read this, things — fixtures — will have happened! Certain players (most probably) brought in double-digit hauls for their owners; several favourites (most likely) got booked. The culprits may well seem obvious now, but it wasn’t even remotely clear on Saturday morning. Indeed, whilst I’m writing to you from the past — well, that can be said of any given passage, but it’s often fresh off the print — we’ve now observed ~2.105% of the new [F]PL season, albeit not a full Gameweek yet. That leaves us with just under 98% of the season to chase: almost quite literally, then, all to play for! One step at a time, though, or perhaps three to four steps; Premier League fixtures (even in the crowds’ absences) will never cease to functi...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 1 No pressure! Here I am with the first of the ‘traditional’ articles run at FF247, at a time where there is still great upheaval from the ‘C’ word – by ‘C’ word, I, of course, mean Covid-19 and not the politician who first comes to your mind! However, at least we have the benefit of the return to three substitutions, along with a more normal-looking – albeit delayed – calendar. That is great news to me anyway, as that crazy period when the league restarted, where I was also on holiday and had less FPL focus, saw my rank plummet to the worst finish in seven years. So, looking ahead – as we particularly must do at the moment – I trust you are all ready for the rollercoaster that will no doubt be the season?! Not that there has been much of a wait! ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30+

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30+ Ok, so we warned you on our FPL / FF247 Returns article that we may not be massively active for the rest of the season, given the fixture layout. But then we went and did a huge GABO article. And then there’s a comprehensive Captain Picks one in the pipeline. And the following will almost certainly put a final nail in that particular coffin / balloon*. *Delete as to how appropriately morbid you are. We genuinely don’t know how many more articles we will get to do this season, and so this may / may not be the final Fixtures Analysis one. Hence we decided to go comprehensive. Albeit succintly. Either way, here’s a whistle stop tour of all 20 teams and a quick analysis of all of their remaining fixtures… FPL FIXTURE TRACKER But ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30 No amount of hand sanitiser, reassurance from any scientists or, particularly, loads of loo roll can bring you back from the panic. No, not a certain virus, I mean when Mane brings in the points and you don’t have him in your team – but those around you in your respective leagues do. Or when Chelsea tear Everton apart and there isn’t a single blue shirt in your starting XI. Or when everyone is bringing in Aubameyang ahead of the gameweek and you realise you can’t afford him. OK, the last one is still out with the jury at the moment, especially as Leicester versus Aston Villa is actually the decider of whether I get a green arrow or not. Do I want the Foxes trio in my squad to run riot, so I can keep those top 10k dreams alive, or do I wan...[Read More]
