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 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.

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! GW32; A Glass Half Full…

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Usually when we ask our writing team to come forth for an International Break GABO we see tumbleweeds in abundance, and little sign of actual writers. This time however, for whatever reason, they were literally scrambling over each other to get involved. So much so that we have no less than two episodes of GABO to bring you in the break this time. We’ve decided to split them based upon perceived personality traits; Glass Half Full & Glass Half Empty. We say perceived personality traits… it was actually based solely on their original answers on WhatsApp to our request for entrants. Funnily enough, it was unerringly accurate. First up then we have AT, Swirly and Rosco. AT and Swirly’s answers were very simi...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 31

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 31 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 31. Into the business end of the season we go and this round is very much the famine before the feast, with what is widely thought to be two double gameweeks on the horizon – 32 and, most likely, 35 – with the shortened Gameweek 33 stuck in the middle, presenting great opportunities for the chips you have left. Various predictions are currently flying around for rescheduled fixtures, however we won’t know for certain until after next weekend, once the FA Cup quarter final ties have been played. It does, however, look like similar teams will miss out on playing both this week and then again two weeks later, so this article will focus on the players that are good for both, as things currently stand. Many FPL managers...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 30. First off, a quotation: “As for giving tips on how to navigate your chips and transfers to accommodate the blank, I’ll defer that to the writers later this week” Guy Sanchez, FF247, 4th March 2019 Way to try to shift the blame Guy – I loved your article, but my heart sank when I read that! Anyway, so, if you’re looking for answers on chip strategy I’LL DEFER THAT TO THE WRITERS NEXT WEEK. Of course, you could have a look at Mito’s chip strategy for some ideas. You can find that here: here So then, Gameweek 30 is now upon us and it’s the last ‘proper’ FPL week before we enter the beginning of silly season with our first BGW (or Blank Gameweek) which will take place in Gameweek 31. After BGW31 it will be followed...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29 No Kun do… When the week begins with the ever consistent Jimenez blanking against bottom club Huddersfield and then Doherty conceding a clean sheet in the dying minutes you could be forgiven for thinking it would be another one of those weeks. The truth is, it very nearly was. It took another attacking full back to pull us back from the brink really, as TAA weighed in with an unusual hat-trick of assists, a clean sheet and full bonus points for an unexpected haul of 18. Just as well really as the rest of them were a bit lacklustre. Digne got us a clean sheet, spoiled by an inevitable yellow, idiot that he is. Shaw and Pogba both chipped in with assists and Aubameyang got us a goal but it wasn’t quite the haul we were hoping for, especially ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27. We really are getting into the business end of the season as we decide how best to utilise our remaining chips in an attempt to deal with the blanks & doubles. For the purposes of this article I’m not going to attempt to put forward a chip strategy, I’m sure someone much smarter than I will do so at some stage. In fact, Mito already has an excellent chip strategy outlined in Hot Topics. I will make reference to the blanks & doubles, and because of the blanks & doubles some of the players tipped below may or may not fit into your plans. For obvious reasons players from City, Chelsea, Everton & Brighton will not feature this week. Although a quick look at the transfers in for this game-weeks would...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 26

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 26. Everton v Man City brought GW25 to a close, and what a game-week it was. Some were heralding it as season-defining, and for some, this may indeed be the case with 50+ point swings creating shifts in ranks in Mini Leagues around the globe. In the weekend fixtures, it was strike one to those who had kept Hazard (I sold him for Sane 10 minutes before the deadline!) and/or captained (or TC) Aguero (I moved my (C) off Aguero when I did the aforementioned move). Those of us that handed Sane the armband (and again some with the Triple) could only look on with envious eyes and thoughts of ‘what if’. Speculation then moved to who would start in the first Double Game-week fixture of the season, those with Sane, crossing ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 24

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 24 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 24. Back to FPL action we go, after events over the past week have meant this article has been rewritten about three times, as my research has also used an unhealthy amount of highlighter pen! Before the first matches of Gameweek 24 even kick off, there has been the small matter of the League Cup, FA Cup and South Korea’s progress in the Asian Cup. I’m sure you know who I mean when I talk about the latter! There’s also the big news coming out on Sunday that, for Everton and Man City, there will be a double gameweek (DGW) in Gameweek 25 and a blank (BGW) in Gameweek 27. Going into DGW and BGW territory, you start to see changes in ranks between those who are unaware of these and us seasoned players who make up Excel...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Welcome to a special edition of Bore Off! Usually we only run these during the International breaks, but this time we decided to throw one in since we had a few extra days between GW’s. You will notice a slightly different format as there are nowhere near as many questions and we have asked our guys to expand a bit more than usual on the six they did get. This GABO is focused on the blank and double game-weeks to come. Obviously, we can only talk so much without knowing what teams will actually be a part of the actual doubles and blanks and as we see the FA Cup start to dwindle down teams we will address what players/teams and possible strategies you should be considering, but that will come in due time. Now for a quick intro ...[Read More]

5 Golden Fantasy Premier League Tips

5 Golden Fantasy Premier League Tips Manchester City easily won the previous year’s Premier League trophy, but it is certainly not looking that easy for Pep Guardiola’s side this year. In fact, if they would have lost the Etihad match against Liverpool, then it would have been almost impossible for City to win the title. However, Manchester City is still in the title race because they won 2-1 against Liverpool. While Klopp’s side is currently facing a lot of injuries at the back. It is already turning out to be a very exciting Premier League season. For the league title, there is a tough competition between City and Liverpool while Tottenham Hotspur is also being considered as part of that competition. For the top four spots, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are try...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 23. My first article of 2019 and we are two weeks into it in game-week terms. How has it been for you? Well it started kind of same old same old for me with a Game-week rank of about 3.5 million (I took a hit) and then last week, Game-week 22, I had a rank of sub-80k (I didn’t hit). So don’t hit. There, that covers that. As you will perhaps remember from my last moan (sorry, article) I’m not having a particularly nice time this season, but the green shoots of recovery are there as I grasped the nettle and got Pogba and Rashford in immediately after they played Huddersfield (who have just announced their manager has left – who says this FPL writing game isn’t a 24-hour business?) and they are doing good stuff for me...[Read More]

I’m sure you’re all in a positive frame of mind and are all set to achieve your FPL targets this season.

Fantasy Football Trends From The Top GW21 Analysis

Fantasy Football Trends From The Top GW21 Analysis Welcome to Trends From The Top – What Are The Leaders Doing? After a small hiatus, I welcome you to this week’s edition of Trends From the Top. In previous weeks, the trends showed that the popular picks were indeed the wise ones. This week however, saw a bit of division amongst the top ten as well as a fascinating occurrence while selecting team captains. Read on to learn more… Who was the most captained player by the top ten for Gameweek 21? This week, for the first time in many, many gameweeks (I really mean seasons), an interesting phenomenon occurred in which there were 5 different captain picks among our leaders. This is indeed incredibly odd for those fighting for the top spot as they usually tend to go with the safe and...[Read More]
