Fantasy Football (has been suspended!) Update

Fantasy Football (has been suspended!) Update Unless you’ve been living under a rock (perhaps advisable right now) you will be aware that the Premier League have suspended all fixtures until (at least) April 4th. In essence this means that we will miss GW’s 30 & 31 and resume in GW32. Whether the 32 target actually happens is a different matter but for now that is what we are being told to work towards. We just wanted to make you aware of a few key things… FPL have released the following on Twitter; What does the #PL postponement mean for #FPL 👇 ⬛ All GW30 and GW31 fixtures are postponed and the intention is for the PL to return for GW32 on 4 April, subject to medical advice — Fantasy Premier League (@OfficialFPL) March 13, 2020 To pick the bones out of...[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 Captain Picks Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 30 Away days… Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 30 The jury is still well and truly out on last week’s picks but at the moment there’s definitely a divide between those who went with a single game-week player and those who went with a double one. And there’s definitely a divide between who actually went with their pick in reality and who was a Billy Liar again! In terms of ‘success’ (so far) AT is winning with his Vardy pick on 22 Captain points, despite him not even starting his game. Smash is 2nd with Salah and his return of 18. GP is stranded in (joint) 3rd with 4 points after Jimenez blanked against Brighton. Jamesimmo will be hoping PEA can improve his current 4 in the second game and DMC is c...[Read More]

FanTeam CL Wednesday (11th March) – Free Ticket Giveaway

FanTeam CL Wednesday (11th March) – Free Ticket Giveaway Now I’m not usually one to boast (fantasy cricket aside) (and Ilicic ) but having already had a couple of winners at Cheltenham yesterday I was feeling a bit lucky and so when I got a call from the good people at FanTeam asking if I fancied a few free trial tickets for their Tuesday night CL games I naturally thought ‘oh go on then, why not…’. Three hours later and I was suddenly €530.44 richer! And it took me about 2 minutes to enter. And I only came 4th. Seriously… To celebrate this we are offering you all the chance to do likewise. There are two levels of free entry here; NEW USERS* If you are new to FanTeam you can claim a €20 ticket to tonight’s CL game simply by clicking here to register and ...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW30

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW30 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW30. DGW29 (or GW29 as it turned out) will be remembered for all the wrong reasons it seems. For every team with a Mane VC and Lundstram 12-pointer off the bench, there are the poor sods who played their Free Hit or worse; took hits to bring in City and Arsenal players. Sad times, but let’s keep perspective here. Thankfully, over at H&L we remain unaffected with the City v Arsenal fixture never part of this conversation, that doesn’t mean we don’t care. We were just ahead of our time… Normal service was resumed in the Saturday fixtures of GW29. We kicked off with one of our most popular results; a classic 2-1, and followed that up with a trio of 1-0’s,...[Read More]

UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2019/20 Last 16 – 2nd Leg

UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2019/20 Last 16 – 2nd Leg Hello everyone and welcome to UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2019/20 Last 16 – 2nd Leg. The CL is back for part 2 of this protracted round on Tuesday. Even though it’s the 2nd leg it’s essentially a fresh GW with new transfers to be made and captain / substitutions to be poured over once more. Let’s go make sense of it all for you once more… So what do you really need to know this week… 3 Free Transfers Yep, you get three free fresh transfers ahead of this round, simple as that. (You can now include four players from any one team at this stage, as opposed to the standard three, this increases as we progress through the rounds). You can carry one over into the next round if you like ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 30 No amount of hand sanitiser, reassurance from any scientists or, particularly, loads of loo roll can bring you back from the panic. No, not a certain virus, I mean when Mane brings in the points and you don’t have him in your team – but those around you in your respective leagues do. Or when Chelsea tear Everton apart and there isn’t a single blue shirt in your starting XI. Or when everyone is bringing in Aubameyang ahead of the gameweek and you realise you can’t afford him. OK, the last one is still out with the jury at the moment, especially as Leicester versus Aston Villa is actually the decider of whether I get a green arrow or not. Do I want the Foxes trio in my squad to run riot, so I can keep those top 10k dreams alive, or do I wan...[Read More]

CL Tuesday New format: Pursuit (10th March) – Preview

CL Tuesday New format: Pursuit (10th March) – Preview Finally, the second legs of the Champions League round of sixteen begin, starting on Tuesday with Leipzig-Tottenham and Valencia-Atalanta. Sign up here! First of all I have prepared a table for you again: Here are the 4 teams that will play this Tuesday. We can see their probability of winning, the probability of them scoring a goal and the probability of them having a clean sheet. It quickly becomes clear that Leipzig outperforms in all categories and Tottenham is the tail light. Leipzig wins by 62%, Tottenham only by 16%, Leipzig scores 86%, Tottenham only by 59%. Accordingly the clean sheet probabilities: As usual, we look at the defensive lines of all 4 teams first. For this we take the average price at Fanteam.com of the 4 most exp...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 29

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 29 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Double Gameweek 29. Our game-week kicks off Saturday lunchtime with Bournemouth undoubtedly going to Anfield confident of a victory following their battling draw with Chelsea and Liverpool’s shocker at Watford. And Chelsea… Five 3pm matches follow as resurgent West Ham go to the Emirates, GW28 victors Palace and Watford battle it out at Selhurst Park, Sheffield United welcome Norwich, Newcastle take the long trip to Southampton and Wolves host Brighton. The evening kick off sees Burnley welcoming Spurs to Turf Moor.

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29 How far in does one go… said the priest to the… We’re here all week. It was also the question posed this week as we considered exactly what constituted enough DGW coverage. But more on that later. Let’s deal with last week first. A celebration of dullness. In the most weird of game-weeks we somehow scored 41 points, which saw us comfortably beat the ridiculously low average of 26 points. We won’t complain that 29 of our 41 points came from just four of our team. Indeed, we gained 22 points from the goalless draw betweem Newcastle and Burnley thanks to a 10pt haul from Pope and clean sheets from Lascelles and new recruit Taylor, who only made it into our XI as an autosub for the injured Vardy. Jiménez did us proud with a late 7pt...[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 Captain Picks Gameweek 29

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 29 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 29. We need to talk about Kevin… It was difficult to pick a winner from last week. Mainly because they all ultimately fell flat on their faces. Trent delivered Kop an unexpectedly low 2-point captain return and perhaps he learned his lesson about captaining defenders. Not that he did (perhaps the former, he didn’t do the latter regardless…). We also hope that Smash had a decent vice, as Vardy failed to even turn up for him. That’s assuming he captained him (he didn’t…). Technically the winner was Rosco, as he picked both Mané and Salah but, even with that potent double advantage, he still only brought home 8 captaincy points. With both! That’s four of the top-scoring ...[Read More]
