Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8 We always love a good ‘Capo-off’ and so this week we have asked four of our writers to give us their picks for GW8. We asked them not to necessarily name just who their own pick will probably be, but who they would pick given a blank canvas. May the best man win and all that… DMC – Aubameyang vs Bournemouth (H) He was born in France and that’s where he learned all the tricks of the football trade but few will know that he has played in Italy, more specifically in Milan’s U-19 squad with whom he excelled in the Champions Youth Cup held in Malaysia in 2007 scoring 7 in 6 games. Why is this relevant? It isn’t. But I was asked to write a whole paragraph on my captain pick. So,...[Read More]

Does Fantasy Football help Fantasy Betting?

Does Fantasy Football help Fantasy Betting? Fantasy football leagues are an incredibly popular game among sports lovers. With big newspapers offering large sums of money to winners, groups of people setting up their own leagues with workmates, and family and friends as well. It would be very unusual for anyone to have not heard about fantasy football leagues, or know of someone that partakes in one. Around football season time, fantasy football is discussed regularly and is a great talking point for football fans all over. Football is arguably the most popular sport in the whole world, and people bond and make friends with others that enjoy the game, it enhances communication in workplaces, and fantasy football is a great way to encourage that. Online there is a world of information, discu...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8. As we enter the final game week before the second international break I find myself scratching my head after another poor score and yet another (I’ve got 5 in total) red arrow. As ever I look for the positives, and whilst I can’t find any In my FPL side, I will take my switch to this weeks fixtures article (from last weeks tips) as an ideal opportunity to scholar-up on which teams I should be targeting in the coming weeks. So If like me your game-week has been less than satisfactory, join me in pretending it never happened and look to start afresh come GW8. I have made a point of omitting Manchester City this week, their fixtures are good, you already have their players, you don’t need me ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 7. Eight Saturday fixtures get us going. The early game sees the surprising Sheffield host the perfect in six Liverpool side. Six matches follow that. Villa host Burnley, fifth place West Ham take on sixth place Bournemouth, Chelsea tries to bounce back against Brighton, Palace looks to give Pukki a second straight blank, Spurs manhandle Southampton and the two last place teams Wolves and Watford…whatever. Sunday only brings us one fixture, but is it a great one? Heck no!! Leicester take on Newcastle, I am getting sleepy already. At least we still have a game on Monday and after this boring documentary of a game we need a comedy to get us back in a good mood. Speaking of comedies, the clo...[Read More]

5 In-form midfielders to have in your Fantasy Premier League team

5 In-form midfielders to have in your Fantasy Premier League team The 2019-20 Premier League season has lived up to its billing over the first seven match-weeks and has served up some compelling contests. Last season’s tearaway sides, Liverpool and Manchester City, haven’t let their foot off the pedal as the duo find themselves among the upper trenches of the league standings. However, the Merseysiders currently enjoy a 5-point lead over the defending champions, meaning that they’ve had the better of the early exchanges. Elsewhere, Manchester United have largely struggled whereas the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have blown hot and cold. Leicester City though, seem to be the most improved team this term as a string of victories has propelled them into the top four. Watford, meanw...[Read More]

UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2019/20 GW2

UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2019/20 GW2 Hello everyone and welcome to UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2019/20 GW2. The Champions League returns on Tuesday and we had such a good response to it last time that we thought we would make a regular feature of it. We shall cover the main points of order for the week ahead, the fixtures themselves and how the league table looks in our ‘Regs’ one. Housekeeping GW2 The main points to consider this week are as follows; Transfers You get two free transfers each week, starting with this one. You can choose to carry one over should you wish, but you will never get more than three in any GW. Deadlines / Manual Subs / Captain Switches There are two, essentially. The first and main one is at kick off on Tuesday which is 5.55pm...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW7

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW7 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW7. Spawning Glory A Zinchenko no-show was always on the cards at some point, a Sterling one less so, albeit less excepted. One was plenty enough, but the latter was less welcome, especially considering how many points he may have scored in the annual Watford roasting. Lundstram was our main beneficiary in the above deal as he glefully leapt from the bench, 12 points in hand. Ordinarily we would be more than happy for Mount to climb likewise but this time he simply filled in a two point hole. Elsewhere our Burnley duo of Pope and Pieters did what they do when at home and combined for 13 between them, McGinn surprised us with a 10 pointer away at Arsenal and Kun somehow disappointed us with an 18 pointer a...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7. I’m going on an adventure! Basically, I’m like the James Milner of the FF247 office, you tell me to do something I do it no questions asked and that’s what has happened this week. The big boss usually gives me the responsibility of writing the Fixtures article but thanks to one of the lads not being able to write Tips this week I snapped at the chance to give you all my thoughts on who we should bring in. So much like that wingback who has been told they can go forward and attack, I’m grasping this opportunity with two hands and running away with it. Now I have done this article before, so I am not a newbie but usually I use this article to tip differentials, because where is the fun in tipping Salah! My track re...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW7

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW7 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW7. Other than the Man City demolition job, GW7 ended with a largely predictable set of results. Arsenal and Bournemouth kept things interesting with their three goals but other than that it was draws, 2-0’s and 2-1’s. As such, this lead to a relatively high scoring game week with 13pts required to take top spot. Site favourite, Gee Gee betting,  pub-goer Silvers took a moment away from propping up his local to take those 13pts… we look forward to seeing him take his FF247 t-shirt on a tour of his local hostelries. Second place was shared with both Goal Machine and OddDane with 11pts, Frenchie picking up a respectable 10pts coming a close third. And so; Many Congratulat...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 7. It’s not that often we get two FPL veterans in the same studio so this smacked of ‘opportunity knocks’. As such we have taken the chance to do something a bit different with the captaincy article this week and grill them while we can on the whys and wherefores of how they actually pick their own captain. And then also get their picks for this week. How are your own captaincy picks going so far this season? Cookie: As Greavsie would say, ‘it’s been a game of two halves really’ – GWs 1-3 were good with Sterling, Auba and then Sterling again performing and then 4-6 have been what can only be described as a shocker in the guise of two Sterling blanks and what can only be described as a ‘FUBAR’...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 7. “If you never do anything differently, you’ll reduce your chances of enjoying lucky accidents.” Those are the words of Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman of Ogilvy UK, albeit it in a different context. Putting John Lundstram in your starting 11 would seem to support his assertion. I’ll tell you why I’ve decided today that I disagree with Mr Sutherland’s opinion later on (at least in the FPL context)! The FPL community has had to endure a security breach this weekend. Liam Neeson wannabe and all-round hardman FPL Chef was issuing threats to his attacker. Fear not though, Swedish hacker – he is unwilling to travel beyond the Leeds ring road. I am intrigued to know what sort of a person can even ...[Read More]
