Fantasy Football Tips

The Tips article, which will be released on Thursdays, is where we take a look at which players should be considered for your team, both on a short-term and longer-term basis. While the more obvious football tips selections will, naturally, be included, we will also endeavour to find those hidden bargains and differentials that could set you apart from your rivals and help your performance in your mini-leagues.


THE SCOTCH CORNER – SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP FANTASY FOOTBALL TIPS 2020/21 GP said he had a few things to say and that he’d just post it in the chat, and then he emailed me this and asked if it was article worthy. Well, if it looks like an article, reads like an article and is as long as an article, then it probably is an article. Can’t wait to read all about Joel Campbell and so here it is, GP’s Tips. Aberdeen The Dons have been very coy with their team news in each of their two friendlies so far. They lost 2-1 to St Johnstone with Bruce Anderson (£3.8) scoring (after which manager McInnes said that the youngster would be seeing a lot of first team action this season). Craig Bryson (£3.8) scored the only goal in their 1-1 draw at Hibs on Saturday and the experienced ex-Derby...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips ‘One Week Wonders’ Gameweek 38+

Fantasy Football Tips ‘One Week Wonders’ Gameweek 38+ It’s certainly been a strange season dominated by the worst kind of virus. But they had to win the league in the end I suppose. We arrive in GW38+ after what can only be described as a frenzied plethora of nine game-weeks in just five-and-a-half calendar weeks that has left most of us completely exhausted, not least many of the players. With one last game-week to go you may be in a situation where a mini-league is still up for grabs or you’re chasing one last jump up the rankings, maybe you’re trying to avoid your worst ever season – or perhaps you still have one of your Chips left to play. Whatever your situation, I have come up with a list of players who I think may do well for you in GW38+. I’ve even tried to play Pep rou...[Read More]

Three Fantasy Football Picks Who Have Vastly Underperformed This Season

Three Fantasy Football Picks Who Have Vastly Underperformed This Season With the current 2019-20 Premier League campaign approaching its conclusion, FPL managers will undoubtedly be taking time to reflect on the performance of their fantasy teams. Players such as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Danny Ings, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have continually delivered this season whilst, according to official Fantasy Premier League statistics, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been the top player this year, accumulating 216 points so far. However, at the other end of the spectrum, there are numerous underperformers who were selected in good faith at the beginning of August, yet have comprehensively failed to live up to those lofty pre-season expectations. We take a look at three top flight sta...[Read More]

Why Betbright is worth considering for Fantasy Football bets

Why Betbright is worth considering for Fantasy Football bets Fantasy football betting is one of the funnest games for football fans. Put together a team of 11-25 players, based on real ones, and earn points for how they’re actually playing on the pitch in football games. It requires sports knowledge, some research and a good deal of luck. You need to choose your captain wisely, look out for points machines and balance your budget when it comes to picking your players. You won’t have the funds to pick a squad of superstars so decide wisely which team members will get you the most quality of play for your fantasy cash. Picking your team name and a kit is also of the utmost importance. But if you play your cards (or in this case, player choices!) right you can win big and have a great time do...[Read More]

Possible Manchester United Move for Jack Grealish

Possible Manchester United Move for Jack Grealish Possible Manchester United Move for Jack Grealish With the football world at a standstill at the moment, it is hard to believe there are still deals going on in the background with players piquing the interest of some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. Jack Grealish has been one to watch since he rose to his highs at Aston Villa, but some of his behaviours whilst on lockdown left much to be desired for a lot of fans. Regardless, there have been plenty of people linking the star with Manchester United, and a move could be on the cards at some point soon. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United boss, reportedly has his eyes on him, and it is easy to see why. The key things that fans are picking up on however is where he might fit into the U...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30. I don’t think I’ve ever written a Tips article before; not recently anyway. I’ve always thought of it as being incredibly difficult to write for two reasons: (1) given my evident inability to write succinctly, the Tips article brings with it the risk of writing a short book and simultaneously boring every unfortunate reader; and (2) the real fear that Init will hang the writer out to dry the following week if their Tips amass a collective score of ‘poor to embarrassing’. Uh oh, better rein in my use of parentheses, again. In recent weeks, Init has started to dissect the Captain Picks article, gleefully reporting on failed choices and turncoats. For full disclosure, then, I have sev...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 29

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 29 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 29 I’m back — again — and so soon! What’s changed in one short month? Unfortunately, the credibility of my overall ranking most certainly hasn’t. Nor has No Time to Die’s prebooking revenue. At least some global normality’s been restored lately; Liverpool have now lost 3 of their last 4 matches. Beyond pitiful comments, the DGW–BGW landscape’s become clearer. We now know to bring in Arsenal and Man City assets before ditching just about everybody for a BGW31 abomination. Preparing for near-inevitable disappointment naturally follows on from this. It’s time: No Time to Get Your Hopes Up just yet, though. Nope, only time to reveal my misguided suggestions. Enjoy but, as always, don’t pay this too much attention. Plea...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 28

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 28 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 28. The god-awful Winter break is thankfully a distant memory, just as well, as we’re officially heading into silly season (proper) as the first of the end of season blanks and doubles begin this very game-week. Hopefully, everyone who spends any time here has been well aware for some weeks now, you’ve planned it all out, you can still get a full 11 out without hits and all is calm. If not, spend a few minutes panicking, take a few hits and make a note to not make the same mistake again next season (this is more a note to self). I’ll be completely ignoring Liverpool in this article, by now you either have your 3 Liverpool players or you’re a glutton for punishment. I’ll not be totally ignoring the blanking teams as...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27. Only in England and the PL could a winter break not equate to no football. I haven’t checked, but I suspect in all other European leagues which take a ‘winter break’ the league effectively closes down. But not the PL, no they just invented a farce. The farce carried over into FPL and the never-ending game-week that at the time of writing is still not over. **** me, it’s been tedious! Had FPL made GW26 into two separate game-weeks things could have been much more interesting but instead they made it as boring as possible. That’s enough about GW26, onto GW27. I’ve decided to ignore Liverpool and the four teams (City, Villa, Arsenal & Sheffield United) who blank in GW28 as I expect most people will already hav...[Read More]

EPL relegation candidates: Which teams to avoid between now and May?

EPL relegation candidates: Which teams to avoid between now and May? We’re now about the enter the business end of the 2019/20 EPL season. Some teams are nicely rested after a mini-winter break, while others have been hard at work on the training ground after disappointing periods before the recent gap in fixtures. Fortunately, it all kicks off again in February, with fantasy football fanatics dying to make changes to their teams in a bid to cement their lead or make up ground on their friends. If you want to know which squads are most likely to be damaging to your fantasy teams between now and May, read on as we outline the five main candidates for the drop: Norwich City At the present time, Bet365, who commit to the best odds guaranteed for UK punters, have the Canaries priced as short a...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 26

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 26. It’s been a long time since I wrote my first Tips article, just before Halloween, and GW11 clearly saw a vastly different FPL landscape to what awaits today. Liverpool’s key players and a mere £5.1m version of Adama Traoré were just about all whom I picked out wisely back then. In fact, with many high-profile blanks and injuries as of late, things are looking considerably spookier now… Speaking of Liverpool, their PL dominance has reached NSFW-esque territory, but I’ll refrain from (m)any unsavoury quips. For now. Recommending anything Liverpool-related at all from this point onwards is arguably futile — surely, now, only die-hard Citizens have held onto Ederson, Sterling and any hopes of emulating their past s...[Read More]
