Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 38

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 38 Welcome to Football Captain Picks Gameweek 38. It’s here: the final Gameweek of the season. How abrupt it seems. Perhaps that’s a relief? Either way, though, there’s an ominously bittersweet feeling in the metaphorical air. If you view yourself as a relatively casual FPL player, hopefully the literal air around you has a summery breeze carrying it, with the scent of freshly mown lawn and a BBQ lagging just behind; if you view yourself as an FPL obsessive, however, then chances are that you’re surrounded by stagnant air whilst frantically checking if Son’s price fell at ~01:20 during the decisive CL matches. ‘Woe betide those who took the risk to sell him before seeing how many new injuries crop up in the semi-finals’, you muse to yourself, before ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 38

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 38 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures Gameweek 38. It can’t be GW38 already? It only seems like yesterday when we were all toiling over our GW1 selection! Some of us will have had a successful season while others will be glad the season is all but over. No matter how well you did I hope everyone has enjoyed the season, as after all, it’s only a game. I moan every week, mainly to Cookie, about how I no longer enjoy FPL but every week I make my transfers. I’m sure I’ll state at some stage over the summer that I’m not going to play next season but, I will. It’s like a drug! Over the course of the season I’ve included a verse from a particular song. The reason for doing so was that I felt it best described my mood at the time or the mood of our ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 37

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 37 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 37. Both the title itself and the final relegation spot could be decided this week, depending on the results. Conversely we could very well be saying the exact same thing next week. The difference being that if not this week then next week they definitely will be. We begin with the televised game that we’ve all been waiting for all season. Cancel your plans and settle down as Burnley, who have nothing to play for go to Everton, who have nothing to play for. This is not quite what Friday night games were invented for! To be fair to the TV companies every other live game this weekend does actually have something riding on it beginning with Spurs trying to guarantee themselves a CL spot as ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37. Bend over for Callum Wilson We had a decent GW36 in the end, having belatedly played our Bench Boost, and we ended up with 114 points; 45 above the average and a rank rise of over 5k to land in 7,129th place. The question over the piece though was really just whether we would have been better sticking with the original plan of BB’ing in GW35 and TC’ing in GW36. Surely none of our committee would be anal / bothered enough to go and check?! Well, apparently… oh yes they bloody well would! Apparently then, had we BB’d in 36 we would have got an extra 16 points (allowing for the (then) proposed transfer of Callum Wilson in and accounting for no TC points). This week we would have gai...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW37 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW37. Cutting straight to the chase last week’s winner was SherLock who took the prize of the coveted FF247 T-shirt with 13 points. Sweetbluetoffee, Red Robbo and Eresh were the nearly boys and runners up with 12 points. Nobody was clever enough to predict Keita would open the scoring so no 1st goal scorer points were awarded this week. And so; Many Congratulations to SherLock. Please email us here; contact@fantasyfootball247.co.uk to claim your prize. THIS WEEK’S COMPETITION… Scoring couldn’t be simpler: Correct Score = 3 points Correct result = 1 point Correct First Goalscorer of the game-week = 5pts (Points are awarded on an ‘either/or’ basis, so you’ll either score 3 points for a C...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 37

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 37 Welcome to Football Captain Picks Gameweek 37. It was with much excitement that I ripped open the envelope that landed on my door mat. Could this be it? My golden ticket moment. Even though I’m feeling more like Grandpa Joe than Charlie Bucket these days, mentally I’m still a kid. I couldn’t wait to find the letter opener, I ripped the seal apart with my bare hands… and there it was. My invitation to write the GW37 Captain article personally sent from FF247’s very own Willy Wonka. You see I didn’t think I’d be allowed back after some horrendous selections over the years which have included nightmare picks of Baines, Kolarov and Kolasinac and culminating in me recommending on the boards to you all to Capo Shane Duffy in DGW34. Even the Site T...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 37

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 37 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 37. “Oh what a night, late April back in twenty-nineteen”. Sure it doesn’t quite go to the Four Seasons’ song, but that’s how I’ll fondly remember Liverpool’s performance against Huddersfield. No, it’s not because I’m a supporter of the Reds, but because, like many other managers, it happened to be when I selected a certain chip on a certain Egyptian, helping me on to a gameweek score of 131 and rank of 45k that I still can’t get my head round. But I’m not here to gloat. The reason I am mentioning this is to remind you that your fortunes can change so easily within FPL. Back in Gameweek 10 at the end of October, I was at a rank of 1.8 million, having had my worst start to a fantasy season in the 10 years I’d been d...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 37

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 37 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Fixtures Gameweek 37. I don’t write as often I would like these days (some may say that’s a good thing!), I spend the time chasing up other writers instead (they certainly won’t!) but one thing for sure is that I appreciate every single word they do write as I know what goes into writing an article. As a user of other websites I know that it’s simply ‘expected’ that the latest content / news / whatever will magically appear whenever we press that refresh button. As a fellow writer though I appreciate the time, effort and research that goes in behind the scenes to make said magic. A common theme whenever a ‘newbie’ steps forward for us is something along the lines of...[Read More]

Fantasy Success Strategy: Choosing The Right Penalty Taker

Fantasy Success Strategy: Choosing The Right Penalty Taker At the end of every season, its goals that inevitably win fantasy football prizes. Teams with the most goals usually have the best chance of finishing highly. When you have a player who is an automatic penalty taker, it makes them a sought-after commodity, a potential source of regular points, and a secondary source after your strikers. How many times do we see a match heading for 0-0 only for one team to come away with all three points after a late penalty decision? It’s happened on numerous occasions this season and will surely happen many times again next season too. So, let’s take a look at how including the right penalty taker can boost your team too. Teams With Most Penalties Awarded Here’s a rundown of the most success...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 36

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 36 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 36. It’s almost back to a sense of normality for GW36. We saw ‘almost’ because we do have another Friday deadline this week (and while we’re talking about it, GW37 is the same). It’s Huddersfield’s chance this week to see if they can win the award for conceding the softest ever penalty to Liverpool as they visit Anfield. James Milner for captain anyone?! We then move into the weekend proper and it’s a lunchtime kick off at Spurs as Poch’s men host their nemesis from the east end. Four 3pm matches follow as Everton visit Palace, Fulham try and drag Cardiff down with them, we have a battle of the south coast as Saints host Bournemouth and Watford & Wolves get to re-enact their entertaining ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36. “I tender my resignation….” Oh dear, oh dear. What a shambles. We of course cancelled our proposed Bench Boost and opted instead to play our Triple Captain chip on Aguero. You know the rest. Kun contributed a mere single assist in 2 matches while Dunk & Duffy recorded a clean sheet apiece and came within a whisker of doubling that. At least it was Eriksen that broke Brighton hearts. Overall we scored 91pts which in all honesty is hardly bad. It was still 24 above the overall average but it could and should have been triple figures and those opportunities don’t come around often. Had we followed our original plan and bought Wilson and then Bench Boosted we’d have landed on 10...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 36

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 36 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 36. As the last of this season’s Double Game-weeks exits stage left, I am tasked with helping you survey which players you should prioritise in the final three game-weeks of the season. Much like the title race, a lot of your mini-leagues will be going down to the wire so it’s important that you use your transfers wisely as they may ultimately define the relative success or failure of your season. No pressure then. No doubt you all have a few players who just a few short weeks ago seemed to make perfect sense, but now have you questioning your own sanity (the jury is still out on treble Brighton), hey, don’t sweat it, I got your back. Some of my suggestions are fairly obvious (treble Liverpool anyone?) ...[Read More]
