FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1 Whether you’ve been waiting with baited breath for our return, or you’ve simply stumbled across this by accident, let us give you a brief history of what we’ve done before, who we actually are, what we do and what to expect from this series of articles. ‘If you know your history…’ For anyone who missed our final wrap up article which we published after the 2018/19 season concluded we ended up with a record points score for us of 2,406 and also a highest ever rank of 5,757. Our history of ranks after 5 seasons now looks like this; 2014/15: 5,921 2015/16: 84,609 2016/17: 12,152 2017/18: 123,007 2018/19: 5,757 Nothing magnificent but also nothing too shoddy. 2017/18 aside perhaps, not quite sure what went so drastically ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Press Conference and Team News GW1

Fantasy Football Press Conference and Team News GW1 Welcome to Fantasy Football Press Conference and Team News GW1. Sometimes change is needed and not because you want to make it, simply because the current situation becomes untenable. This is the case for Predicted Line-ups. We know the line-ups themselves were a popular addition but in all honesty it was stretching us to a limit on a Friday. It also meant many key personnel hiding behind a computer screen for hours on end on the busiest day of the week trying to figure out such useful things as how Huddersfield would line up. Time best spent? We think not too. We’d much rather they be out and about getting involved in the chat and helping in that way. Facts and figures wise we stacked up as we were 76.3% accurate overall last seaso...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1. It has been three months since I’ve had to write an intro, which means it has been three months since I’ve had an opportunity to moan. After three months you’d think I’d have a lot to moan about but it’s been an enjoyable three months. Liverpool won the Champions League. We then had the Cricket World Cup and the Tour de France. Both great sporting events in their own right but made even more enjoyable when you chuck in a fantasy element. Finally, we moved onto The Ashes last week. Who needs football? Seriously. Anyway, that’s enough about the past three months. We’re here to discuss FPL. Nicolas Pepe aside, the top clubs are yet to make any exciting signings so we could yet be left with the tried & trusted FP...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 1 ‘Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated’. So said Chinese philosopher Confucius way back around 500 BC. The same could be said of FPL. Of course, if Confucius were around today, (and enjoyed a little FPL in his downtime) he may give it the big ‘un, but I bet you any money he’d be like the rest of us, because as simple as the game is, most of us have a canny knack of overcomplicating every decision we make. The biggest decision we make each week is arguably our Captain pick. Again this should be simple; pick the best (in form) player with the best fixture and you’re golden right? In theory yes, but does that make it any less painful when your ‘sure thing’ picks up 2pts and the one ‘you were going to captain’ picks up a game-we...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 1 It seems an age away that we watched Man City clinch the league at Brighton in May, but however you have spent your summer thus far, it’s almost time to stop the tinkering and make some firm decisions for the new season. With just days to go until the deadline bell for GW1 rings and gets the 2019/20 season underway, we kick off our usual set of weekly articles with a look at Fixtures – who is hot, who is not and an extra GW1 supplement as we snapshot each remaining team. Favourable Fixtures Liverpool – Norwich (H), Southampton (a), Arsenal (H) The fixture generator has again been kind to Liverpool as they attempt to win their first Premier League. An opening trip to Anfield on Friday evening is not the start that Norwich would have dreamed...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW1

Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW1 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW1. It’s been a long summer, but like FPL we’re back for what will be our third season of our Premier League Predictions competition. Last season more than 100 of you took part and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for your efforts. This year, much like last, the goal will be to see if you have what it takes to beat DenPerryDidIt. Whilst we still have no idea where the name comes from, there’s no denying that DenPerry knows a thing or two when it comes to predicting results in the Premier League. To win the competition once is tough, but to do it twice on the bounce shows the type of skill set that would have bookies up and down the country quaking in their boots. If you’ve played before you ...[Read More]

Pre-season Hub 2019/20 FPL season

Pre-season Hub 2019/20 FPL season Hello and welcome to the Pre-Season Hub 2019/20 season. A new season of FPL action is ahead and as some of you may now have become accustomed to FF247 will run an article detailing all relevant pre-season news focusing specifically on the team line-ups, goal scorers and assisters. This is the article and here’s how it works; This article is a living document which we update daily during pre-season. The intention is to offer a one-stop-shop for all fantasy relevant pieces of information as we begin to assemble our new squads over the coming weeks and months. I intend to personally update this as we go but as always, I’m not precious about it and your help is appreciated in copy/pasting all relevant and salient pieces of information against each team’s comme...[Read More]

How to play the €250,000 GTD season game on Fanteam

How to play the €250,000 GTD season game on Fanteam This year the season game is even more interesting than usual. The reason is Fanteam’s huge game with €250,000 guaranteed to be paid out. If you play well enough, you could exchange €25 with €50,000! There are many interesting aspects of the seasonal fantasy game. In this article we will look at some of them. At the end of the day, what matters is which players YOU decide to pick. But we have some ideas that you may want to consider. Advice number 1: Don’t spend too much money on forwards In our experience, the forwards generally are priced too high in the season game. Very few forwards return enough points to justify their high price. Since the expected value is low, mathematics dictate that we should not put in much money for players in...[Read More]

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Moise Kean and Nicolas Pepe

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Moise Kean and Nicolas Pepe If my last player analysis article was a cautionary tale then this is more of an upbeat and promising one with talk of potential, proven stats, potential, excitement, potential, missing links, potential, Romelu Lukaku, potential and of course Mario Balotelli. Did we mention potential? Let’s go take a look at two genuinely enticing editions to our FPL landscape… Moise Kean* Everton FPL price: £TBCm (probably £7-8m?) Position: Forward One can only assume that some bright spark at Everton finally googled the words ‘centre forward’. Quite how they’ve managed to stay afloat in the Premier League without one since Lukaku left two seasons ago is anybody’s guess. Quite how they’ve m...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2019-20

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2019-20 Guess who’s back, back again…. With the fpl season getting closer and closer to starting, it is of course time for Bore Off to also kickoff. I have gathered the three originals, as is tradition for each first edition of the new season. As always a new season brings new hope. Hopefully this article helps a little, but not too much. Looking back through the first Bore Off from last season, I noticed that the Amigos had many things right. All 3 had Salah as the first person in their team sheet, they were all for the LFC double up in midfield with Mane, which would have worked out well for any manager who did. Cookie and Kop were talking about a back four and in Cookie’s case he was talking up a 5 back. Cookie was ahea...[Read More]
