FF247 Site Team & Predicted Line Ups GW2

FF247 Site Team & Predicted Line Ups GW2 Welcome to FF247 Site Team & Predicted Line Ups GW2 Our GW1 Result… Isn’t it great after weeks of painstakingly creating the perfect squad for the new season, your efforts are rewarded, and you get the season off to a flyer from the get-go? Who knows, not us! The best way to describe our GW1 was average, that is, we ended up on 57pts and you guessed it, the gameweek average was 57pts. Shocking stuff. Our pitiful GW1 efforts see us kick off the season with a rank of 4,137,263. Ouch. So, how did we get here? Well, when you only have 4/11 players return you can usually guarantee it’s not going to be a good week. Thankfully Captain Salah did the business grabbing us 24pts, James, Cancelo and Ederson chipped in 7pts a-piece and that was i...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek GW2

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek GW2 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek GW2 GW1 proved almost predictable in terms of our picks, with Salah and Haaland off to a flier, Kane and Son proving ‘Spursy’, and Sterling finding that goals are always seemingly hard to come by for Chelsea forwards, past and present. Here’s how our writers fared: 1. GP — Haaland, 26 points. Two goals and all 3 bonus points. We have a feeling we may be typing that sentence an awful lot this season. 2. Rosco — Salah, 24 points. A goal, an assist and 2 bonus points. We have a feeling we may be typing that sentence an awful lot this season… 3. Kop — Son, 10 points. A solitary assist when Spurs scored 4. 4. OddDane — Sterling, 6 points. Just a clean sheet to show for his debu...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek GW2

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek GW2 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek GW2 Just like that, we’re into the 2022-23 season and Gameweek 2 has come along already. We are 2.63 per cent of the way through the campaign and so it’s definitely too early to feel any down-heartedness if you made the wrong calls on the likes of Haaland v Kane and going super cheap at the back with all faith in Leicester’s defence. Whilst the former will be easier to sort than the latter, I look at my 250k rank, reflect on the fact that it’s not far off from how I actually finished last season and prepare myself for the inevitable rollercoaster of green and, of course, red arrows over the next 37 gameweeks. Due to a lot going on in my life outside of FPL over the course of the last season – it turns out it’s not...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW2

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW2 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW2. This week we had 4 managers correctly predict the FGS (Martinelli in the 20th minute). Gavy was one of those managers, and thanks to a smashing 12pts in his predictions, his final score of 17pts was enough to take the GW1 crown! Second place was a three-way tie between Bejo, Eplnoob and Rein who all finished on 13pts, thanks in no small part for the latter two also correctly going with Martinelli for the FGS. Our very own Loud Atlas was the only other manager to go with Martinelli but sadly it was not enough to grab a place on the podium. And so; Many Congratulations to Gavy. Please email us here; contact@fantasyfootball247.co.uk to claim your prize. League Table THIS WEEK’S CO...[Read More]

FPL Team Of The Week GW2 – Best XI For Gameweek 2

FPL Team Of The Week GW2 – Best XI For Gameweek 2 Who is our FPL expert choosing in his Gameweek 2 Team of the Week? Join fantasy football guru Ben Dinnery as he picks the best squad for this weekend… Overall, squad values are already beginning to creep up, so I’m looking to capitalise on the shift to maximise my chances of a significant return. At £101.1m, my squad this week may cost a lot, but it’s worth every penny. Thank me later… Goalkeeper Nick Pope (£5.0m) – (3.4 Predicted Points) I am going against the prediction models and stating my belief that Newcastle will perform well on the south coast. Looking at how the team played throughout the second half of last season and the win over Nottingham Forest, I believe most underestimate just how good the Black...[Read More]

FPL Live Match Chat Gameweek 1

FPL Live Match Chat Gameweek 1 Welcome back! We go again, etc. As per last season Arsenal get us under way with the Friday night game. With so many Jesus owners let’s just hope they make a better fist of this one than they did the Brentford game last season. Vieira’s tenacious Palace are the hosts, what could possibly go wrong here… Onto Saturday and we have 6 games beginning with newly promoted Fulham welcoming Salah and co. in the early game. What could possibly go wrong here… We then have Jeff back in the studio at 3pm for 4 games as Bournemouth host Villa, Wolves go to Leeds, The Saudis welcome Robin Hood (what could possibly go wrong there…) and Saints go to Spurs. The late game is the Frank Lampard Derby. We then have 3 games on Sunday with a pair at 2pm...[Read More]

FF247 Site Team & Predicted Line Ups Gameweek 1

FF247 Site Team & Predicted Line Ups Gameweek 1 Welcome to FF247 Site Team & Predicted Line Ups Gameweek 1 Our 2021/22 Overall Rank and Recent History A season which was affected by weather postponements, Covid postponements and GP not correctly placing the TC Chip on Salah, ended with our Site Team achieving a sub-100K rank (usually a very respectable target all things considered) placing at 83,426 overall. In our eight seasons of playing, this is our 5th best – or fourth worst depending on how you view your glass – and whilst there is obvious room for improvement, we approach the new season with renewed vigour and a self-set target of beating our previous best ever and getting into that top 5,000. “Aim for the stars and you might reach the moon” or howev...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek GW1

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek GW1 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek GW1 We appreciate that different people will be in different stages of creating their GW1 team right now. Some, let’s call them Camp One, will have been at this for weeks already and so will probably look at this article and say / shout manically ‘YEAH I KNOW!’. Camp Two folk will be more relaxed amd may have an idea of a team on the go and so will look at this and say ‘nice one, that’s really helpful, thank you’. Some will still be in Camp Three and won’t even have looked at a team yet and so will say ‘perfect, just what I needed’. Whichever ‘Camp’ you are in there will be something here for you. It’s an important article and so we carefully ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 1 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 1 Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more …. The first Captains Article of the new season and it’s a beauty. We have five superb picks which might make you think that it isn’t all ‘plain Salahing’. Admittedly Salah is up first (but that’s only because the teacher’s pet Rosco got into the article editing suite first) so please read right to the end because even if you are set on Mo, there might also be something which could sway you to (or from) owning the other four picks if you happen to be swithering right now. The correct answer for captaincy is of course Erling Haaland which might lead you to work out who wrote this intro …. Rosco –...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixtures Gameweek GW1 2022/23

Fantasy Football Fixtures Gameweek GW1 Centre Forwards are back in fashion then? I should really begin with a bit of an apology, although in essence I’m not really apologising at all. I’ve sort of disappeared over the summer, almost to the point of invisibility, but with dam good reason! I swore to myself that finally, for once, after 14 summer’s of promising myself I would but never actually doing so I would finally have an actual break from all this malarkey. And so I did. So what have I done woth my spare time? Well, for starters I’ve had more holiday’s than Judith Chalmers (use Google youngsters) and I haven’t finished on that front yet. I’ve filled my usual ‘site time’ with real downtime: I watched the cricket. I’ve read 6 bo...[Read More]

Promoted Teams analysis – Fulham

Promoted Teams analysis – Fulham In the final part of our trilogy on the newly promoted teams, we turn our attention to the winners of last season’s Championship: Fulham. To call them ‘winners’ doesn’t do them justice – the way in which they triumphed was stunning. They were simply head and shoulders – and then some – above their rivals and were unrivalled in nearly every department. They boasted the best attacking record in the league – 106 goals, 27 wins, 99 big chances, 16 shots a game, three 7-0 victories…the list goes on and on. They were good – very good! London’s oldest professional club, Fulham first played in the Premier League in the 2001/02 season having been away from the top flight since 1968. Since the ea...[Read More]
