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.

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 17

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 17 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 17 Ok then, so the past few weeks have been a bit…. well, shit? That’s probably fair to say from a fantasy POV. The average for GW15 was 35, and it was 18 for GW16. 18!!! It does however stand that when everybody does poorly then it is of course all relative. But that doesn’t make it particularly exciting now, does it! Hopefully all that was just a blip and we start seeing some more action over the coming weeks. But probably not for Haaland… which in and of itself may actually mix things up a bit, and if nothing else we may all at least have have a few more quid to spend should we decide to cut ties with the big man for a wee while. Let’s go see where some of that could be spent. Goalk...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 14 One look at the Site Team sitting pretty near the top of the FPL charts and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this must therefore be THE place to come for weekly Player Tips. Ahem, well… erm. Look, we try. Some weeks we nail it, other weeks we call… GW13! Just as a recap then, we called out Sa who conceded 3 vs Fulham, Bowen who didn’t play due to injury, Awoniyi who got so injured he’s now out for 4 months, and Solanke who did bugger all, despite Bournemouth actually scoring 3! As for defenders we simply said ‘Urrrghhh’. Which, technically speaking, was our best and most accurate shout, albeit also a massively unhelpful one in the process. Let’s go see if we can...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 13 Those who have already cast an eye over their team ahead of GW13 will no doubt be fully aware that this looks like a difficult week ahead, mainly due to the fixture match-ups of many of the top teams. Man City v Liverpool, Spurs v Villa and Newcastle v Chelsea alone tie up a good many FPL assets to difficult looking games, and that’s not to mention the likes of Arsenal and Man Utd having less than straight-forward away trips. As such you may need one or two different options this week, and so here are our picks for each position for GW13. Goalkeeper – Jose Sa, by Jamie Mc Fantasy Football has been a bit of a struggle for me these past few game weeks. As a non Haaland owner, I dodged a massive bullet ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 11

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 11 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 11 We are spoiling you this week with both a Captains and a Tips Article, this being predominantly due to a Sunday finish/Saturday start between the gameweeks. Thanks to FPL for letting us breathe this week at least. Following on from the excellent Captains Article by Kop and Swirly, we now ask Matt, Stone Frog, Jamie Mc, Rosco, OddDane and Inittowinit to take a look at the options for your precious transfers. They did not disappoint. GOALKEEPER – Sam Johnstone vs Burnley (A) – (Matt) In the last 5 gameweeks, he has picked up a massive 28 points! This included 3 clean sheets in a row but then he conceded in 2 consecutive games but they were against Spurs and Newcastle. 6 goals in the last 2 games isn’t ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 9 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 9 After yet another long break it may be wise to re-accustom yourselves to who is doing what, when and how. Fear not though, for those who cannot even remember what they had for breakfast this morning – Init, Matt and Rosco are on hand to tell you who you should be considering ahead of GW9. Goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha vs Burnley (H) – Matt X Now I know I’m a sucker for a differential and love giving you all picks that are left-field but while this one may seem like I’ve finally cracked, there’s a sensible reason behind it. This move is primarily a short-term strategy that could save you a valuable 0.1 in your Wild Card drafts for Gameweeks 8, 9, and 10. Most Wild Card drafts I’ve seen for the...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7 Roll up, roll up! It’s the first DGW of the season and the circus magician that is Rosco tackles that one head on with enthusiasm and… scepticism. He then juggles West Ham midfielders in tandem with Jamie Mc. Init brings up the rear with a full on Newcastle carnival, a troupe seemingly full of both defending, and attacking showmen. Goalkeeper & Defenders – Newcastle – Burnley (H) – Inittowinit And so they did! So much so that by the 35 minute mark they had two goals and two assists between them, and Trippier made that three assists not long after. Between Botman (4.7m) and Burn (4.5m) (12 pts), and Trippier (6.6m) (18 pts) they got 42 points! Pity those who picked Schar though, a...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 6

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 6 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 6 After what could best be described as a sketchy week for most we pull our socks back up and begin again in earnest on Saturday with GW6. Here are our picks for the coming GW, for those looking to make the odd tweak. Mark Flekken (Brentford, 4.5m) Starting off from the back for this week’s choices, with a quick look at goalkeepers. In particular, Mr. Flekken of Brentford who is facing Everton at home. Now we know keeper transfers are considered a bit of luxury transfer so this may not be your go to transfer if you don’t have him, but for now let’s just look at this current week, who might be a preferred option and where that takes us. Let’s look at the opposition first, Everton has scored an impressive two goals fr...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 5

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 5 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 5 We have a new format for this week’s tips article. We’ll still be bringing you our usual and more comprehensive tips article every 3-4 weeks, which tends to mention every player under the sun, and also focuses on a more long-term approach. But in the interim, we’ll bring a more frequent, laser-guided article, in which we’ll be looking at 5 or so players with the specific incoming game-week in mind, along with a bonus ‘flying under-the-radar pick. This week Rosco, Jamie Mc, Init, Stone Frog and Dylan are on duty, Let’s go see what they have to say, yeah? Keeper – Bernd Leno – Jamie Mc When initially selecting our squads, there are different strategies that us fantasy football managers use wh...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 3

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 3 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 3 Time to look ahead to Gameweek 3 – who has 2 free transfers in their pocket? Or, now that it is Thursday and price swings have occurred who had 2 free transfers and wonders what to do with the other? We got you covered. Goalkeepers & Defenders With the sinister amount of key defender injuries and absentees so far, it seemed prudent to focus on defender tips; but I confess to being somewhat one sided with the tips; left sided to be precise with a plethora of exciting left backs to choose from. This early in the season stats aren’t so useful as the data set is so small and things can change very quickly as teams come into form, so I have mainly focused on the fixtures. First up is the top scoring defender ...[Read More]

OddDane’s Pre-Season Observations

OddDane’s Pre-Season Observations Welcome to OddDane’s Pre-Season Observations. Usually I stick to the typical Tips or Captain Picks articles but I got a little stir crazy looking at all the millions of drafts and so I started to wonder and write… which turned into a personal rant and rave about pretty much all the picks in this maddening fantasy game we call fun! I mentioned this madness to the other writers in the FF247 offices and for some reason they thought it would make for an article! Well… here is the result! The following will be some great tips for you lot, collated from some solid shithousery found on the webbyweb detailing, thoroughly, why every player you pick is just downright awful! Let’s start, shall we? Gunners: Goalie: You’re not considering an Arsenal spot in goal ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 – Keepers and Defenders

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 – Keepers and Defenders Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 – Keepers and Defenders. A run down of the best picks from the group of goalkeepers and defenders. I plan on going down through the price points and giving you my picks for the best options at each one. We will start at most expensive and work our way down starting with the men between the sticks. Goalkeepers – 5.5 Million – There are only three options at this price point so I’ll discuss them all. They are Alisson of Liverpool, Ederson of Man City and Nick Pope of Newcastle. We know their merits and how two of these can be considered as some of the best in the world. They all play in top teams with Newcastle and Man City boasting two of the best defences in the league last seas...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 – Midfielders

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 – Midfielders Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 – Midfielders I am a numbers man, always have been and always will be. The numbers that shout out loudly to me and should be shouting loudly out to you are 3-5-2. This is not just me saying this! This is the formation that you should be using this season according to the “Fantasy Experts”. Here more about that here: With almost half of your starting eleven potentially being midfielders, if you get these five right, then you are probably off and running on a nice start to the season, a decent overall ranking, green arrows aplenty and surely a saved transfer or two along the way. If you get these five midfielders wrong, the overall ranking plummets...[Read More]
