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 36

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 36 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures Gameweek 36. Back to a sense of normality we go, with all 20 teams playing (just) once and this article is the last one that will contain all three fixtures for each team before the season is finished. No pressure, then, especially when you look back to the fantastic articles that were written by AT, Pele and Guy in the lead up to the last gameweek! With much to play for, from the perspective of us FPL managers and the actual teams in the league, there is also the classic form and fixtures to take into account when we are planning our next moves, too. Hopefully the following, which also includes a dip into the history books, gives such an insight! Good Liverpool (HUD H, NEW A, WOL H) First up in the trio...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 35

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 35 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures Gameweek 35. The finish line for the season is so close, and I can tell that the season is nearly over for a few reasons. First, there is just a general sense of fatigue around this point in the year. Unless your personal team is one of the two fighting for the title, you’ve probably fallen into the malaise of watching your team settle into their final (unsexy) zone of the league table. Let’s face it, watching your team fight for 8th or 9th place isn’t really ‘must see TV’. And I can also tell the season is nearly over because Spring is here. Baseball is in full swing, grass is growing and gardens are coming to life. And, as the resident Mexican here on this site, I’m also responsible for mowing many law...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 34

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 34 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures Gameweek 34. Firstly, I’ll pose the question: Did you have Hazard or Vardy in your team in Gameweek 32? Well done, if so – and massive congratulations if you had both and captained one of them! It’s very much the theme looking ahead as we look to match the promising players with double fixtures, ensuring others who have recently been on form aren’t chucked away with a big pile of remorse. And you don’t want that when we’re so close to the finish line. So, with wildcards being played and dozens of versions of teams flying around, I’ll just take it upon myself to remind you that there are other fixtures first; Liverpool, Man City, Man United, Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea will all be playing in Europe before ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 33

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 33 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures Gameweek 33. Well DGW32 did not go as planned so far with Hazard, Sterling and Pogba all blanking and both Chelsea and Manchester United not keeping a clean sheet but hopefully the second round of games will be a bit more profitable. This weekend sees us go from 15 games to 6 games and also a lot of people will revert back to their pre-free hit teams so hopefully there will be a bit more diversity rather than the template that had developed over the last two weeks. I will be taking you through the next three weeks with an eye on who actually plays this weekend but actually an emphasis on who to avoid over the next few weeks and why I think so. Most people will be hitting that WC, BB or TC button in the n...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 32

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 32 Keep it simple, stupid…. Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 32. GW31 was good, wasn’t it?! Regardless, we jump straight from famine to feast, in theory anyway. GW32 is our first bumper double game-week, with no less than 10 teams having no more or less than two games to contend with. And then we have another 2 double weeks to get our heads around; GW34 being a relative mini one and GW35 being another bumper one with 8 teams involved. And we have a blank game-week in between all those with 8 teams not playing in GW33. Confused yet?! Worry not if so, we shall straighten it all out for you in the following article. Sort of… Now, we appreciate that we are catering for about 4 different audiences here; Free Hitte...[Read More]

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]
