Premier League: GW26 Transfers & Starting XI

Ahead of game week 26, it feels I’ve been out of the loop since I last podcasted, ahead of game week 24. Time constraints and life left me no time ahead of the first DGW, but after listening to other pods, they all had the game week covered. Out of DGW25, I was left disappointed with a paltry score of 51, well of the average of 65 points, probably the highest game week average of the season!

Premier League GW25: Transfers & Starting XI

A flurry of activity after the midweek fixtures, as fantasy managers turn their attention towards the first double game week of the season. On Twitter I’ve seen some taking hits to to bring 2-3 Man City players in, while moving other options out of their starting XI. For me, I am not going to bother with DGW25. Currently, I don’t own any City assets and won’t force a square peg into a round hole, which is what I would be doing, if I attempted to chase points with City players. As for Everton…pfft…not even bothering with these Marco Silva “misfits.” Continue reading “Premier League GW25: Transfers & Starting XI”

Josh King: Forward Differential

It’s Friday and many FPL managers have had a listen to their favorite podcasts as they look ahead to DGW25, as Man City and Everton both play twice, but will blank in two weeks time. My thoughts however, aren’t on any double game week players. First, I can’t afford Leroy Sane without moving Mo Salah. Won’t happen, as the Reds travel to London Stadium. I could do the “hokey cokey,” dropping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in favor of Sergio Aguero for the DGW, only to bring Aubameyang back for game week 26 fixture away to Huddersfield.

Premier League: GW24 Starting XI

After research, discussion on Twitter and a number of beers last night, I have come to a well thought out decision ahead of game week 24. Carrying 2 FTs into the game, I am going to roll one, on the off chance I feel the desire to pick up a Man City player ahead of DGW25. Right now, the only one of interest is Leroy Sane, which I can’t afford with £1.5 ITB. Instead, I will go a different direction, one that is probably ill advised by many in the community but it feels more right that busting up my squad that’s played rather consistent.

Premier League: GW24 Transfers

With the announcement of the small double game week in 25, managers must consider or reconsider Everton and Man City assets. Currently, I own neither. I move Richarlison ahead of game week 23 for Mo Salah and Leroy Sane departed prior to game week 20 for Paul Pogba. Both have been excellent transfers since bringing them in. However, with the DGW upcoming, followed by their BGW in 27, what strategy do fantasy managers take? Continue reading “Premier League: GW24 Transfers”

Curious Case of Marcos Alonso

If you were look for a premium defender and you were already doubled up with Liverpool, where would you look? City? Leicester? Spurs? While many fantasy managers don’t favor premium defenders, rather pushing budget into the midfield position, there are some who look to get excellent value from premium defenders who return clean sheets and chip in with attacking returns.
