FPL Ranks for Game Week 9

Arguably the most hated club owner in Europe, Mike Ashley has dangled Newcastle United (and not for the first time) to a few prospective buyers. Ashley wants the club sold by the New Year, but the HMRC’s pursuit of tax abuses by the club could significantly hamper that forecast. Nonetheless,

FPL DRAFT: DIFFERENTIAL PICK-UPS AND PUNTS FOR GAMEWEEK 9

Goalkeepers Joe Hart (WHU) – The Englishman is making a strong case for a starting spot next year in Russia due to recent form. He has returns of 12, 10, -2, 10, 25.75 in his previous 5 games, and the home game to Tottenham (-2) can be ignored purely for our

The Alternative EPL Table: Week 8

We all know that guy who tells you – AFTER the event – that he saw it coming. Mertesacker was bound to score away at Watford. Fellaini was clearly going to bag a couple the week before against Palace. But very rarely, if ever, do they admit when they got

FPL DRAFT: DIFFERENTIAL PICK-UPS AND PUNTS FOR GAMEWEEK 8

Goalkeepers Nick Pope (BRN) – The Pope has been in terrific form, and has earned himself a new contract extension at Burnley. The Englishman has kept back-to-back clean sheets, and is welcoming a West Ham team that will look to get a result at Turf Moor this weekend. Owners that have

FPL Ranks for Game Week 8

Voodoo has struck the following players, all of whom picked up a knock or exacerbated existing ones during the helter skelter WC2018 qualifiers finale: Sadio Mane, Shane Long, Shkodran Mustafi, N’Golo Kante, Joshua King, Davy Propper, Marouane Fellaini, Joe Allen, and Wilfried Ndidi.

Who’s In Goal? Week 8

It’s a question that haunted me every week when I used to manage a Sunday league team, and now it’s a question that haunts me every week when I set my fantasy EPL line-up. Who is in goal? I pick goalkeepers on a week-by-week basis; a tactic which many people

Mo Salah, Mo’ Problems: The Bobby Firmino Situation

Roberto Firmino rode the bench for most of Liverpool’s game at Newcastle. Not only did Firmino produce the 4th most fantasy points among forwards last season, he was Liverpool’s most valuable fantasy asset. Dropping him for noted opportunity-waster Daniel Sturridge raised my eyebrows. Firmino practically glued last year’s attack together, and

FPL DRAFT: DIFFERENTIAL PICK-UPS AND PUNTS FOR GAMEWEEK 7

Goalkeepers Joe Hart (WHU) – The Englishman has two clean sheets in his past three games for the Hammers, and will look to make it three in four when the Swans visit the Olympic Stadium this weekend. It’s worth noting that Swansea have only scored 3 goals in their first 6

FPL Ranks for Game Week 7

—Last updated: 09/29/17 – 3:25 PDT— DFS, FPL, and Togga managers unite in hair-pulling at the most anticipated fixture from GW7. A blockbuster for the neutrals, Manchester City travels to Stamford Bridge, pitting last year’s champs against 2018’s (marginal) favorites to succeed them. Pep is likely wary of Conte’s brilliance

The Alternative EPL Table: Week 6

Last season I devised a method to calculate an alternative – and more accurate! – Premier League table. The inaugural version, which can be found here, correctly stated that Chelsea’s current position at the time (4th) was undervaluing them, whilst Manchester City’s (1st) was also misleading. The original analysis worked
