Captains Picks Gameweek 5

Fantasy Football Captains Picks Gameweek 5

Captain picks23.93%. That’s almost a quarter. (Grade A, GCSE Maths.) That’s how many voters in last week’s FF247 poll said they planned to captain Raheem Sterling. And that’s without including the 8 jokers that “said” they were going to captain Dwight Gayle.
If we extrapolate that % out across the entire FPL population, that’s a whopping 773,435 people trusting the armband to young Raheem. That’s roughly the same number of people that live in Leeds, Marseille, Hamamatsu (Japan – for Bry), or my very own Fort Worth, TX.
Or to put it another way, that’s the minimum number of Christmas cards that Brendan Rodgers won’t be receiving this year.
2 measly points. Two. From a captain. Pathetic.
Anyway. Let’s pretend for a moment that not everyone will be captaining Costa every week from now on, and take a look at what we can expect from the GW5 crop of chancers… Read More

Fantasy Football Fixtures Gameweek 5 – Fantasy Premier League 2014

One man grabbed all the headlines on Saturday with a stunning hat-trick to stake his claim as the number one ‘must-have’ fantasy pick this season. Deigo Costa racked up a whopping 17 points. If you captained him then even better and well done but that number was down a bit due to his ‘will he, won’t he play?’ status. On Sunday, the stage was left free for the new look Man United team to remind us that they were back and that they possibly have a few fantasy gems to be reckoned with once more. Lets take a look at the fixtures ahead for the next six weeks and see whether any of these or indeed others are worthy of your attention and look at who to perhaps avoid for a while. Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 4 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Photo 23-11-2013 11 44 40The deadline bell has rung…did you play your wildcard or have you decided to hold onto it a little longer? Some will be happy with their decision while others will castigate themselves! The first game-week after an international break always makes for fun and games as we have to deal with those ‘international injuries’. Costa is injured, or is he?! Ramsey is injured, or is he?! The game-week kicks off with Arsenal hosting City at lunchtime today and we wrap things up on Monday night with an equally glamourous tie as Hull ‘entertain’ West Ham. Oh and in between there’s the small matter of United potentially rolling out another three debutants.

Keep track of all the action, the goals, the talking points, right here at FF247 Live Match Chat, an interactive chat which encourages you to keep involved and share your thoughts and emotions as the matches take place. Read More

FF247 Team Gameweek 4 WILDCARD!

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 4 WILDCARD!

Fantasy football tipsOk, so errrm, well, how do we put this, we have a small confession to make! We are on a WILDCARD! It wasn’t planned and it took us a bit by surprise to be honest but when we settled down around the boardroom table and took a look at our squad, or rather what was left of it after the international break had done it’s worst, there was a unanimous verdict and only one answer. And so ensued the usual mayhem. You think it’s difficult wrestling with yourself on these matters, but when it’s a committee decision it can get funny, ugly and surreal all in the space of a short hour. Anyway we are pleased to say that the majority of people came out alive. Some scarred for life, more mentally than physically we hope. We await the police and psychologists reports though. The end result is this. Our wildcard team… Read More

Team Talk Fantasy Football GW4

Intro
Finally, GW4 is here, thank the Lord or whoever one thanks in this situation. Wildcard talk is soooo yesterday and we can all move onto counting our riches as our players prove us right in including them….or sadly wrong for neglecting them. It’s a 3-day gameweek, a treat for us deserving and long-suffering managers who have spent the last fortnight worrying how our players will fare on international duty, contemplating how all the new signings will impact on the current starters and trying to second guess a Diego Costa & Jose Mourinho hamstring report. We start Saturday lunchtime down at the Emirates as the Gooners entertain Man City – a game which promises goals and entertainment. Cue the drab 1-1 draw. Six 3pm matches follow as Chelsea host Swansea, Burnley go to Palace, Southampton play Newcastle, Stoke take on Leicester, Spurs travel to Sunderland and West Brom do battle with Everton. The late game is at Anfield where Liverpool and Villa will both hope to build on good starts. Sunday we just have the one match and it’s a fixture where all eyes will be on the starting line-ups as Man Utd host QPR at Old Trafford, before finally, agonisingly, Monday evening sees the conclusion of our gameweek as Big Sam takes his Hammers up to Hull, to take on his great mate Steve Bruce.
Without further ado, let’s go Around the Grounds to see what damage the international matches have done to our squads. Read More

Kops Fantasy Football Tips Game-week 4

kops-tips-001These international breaks become more and more tedious, particularly as they are now spread out over four nights…good one Michel! Not only are these breaks tedious, but they can also prove detrimental to an FPL squad and at the time of writing, leading FPL players such as Ramsey, Hazard, Costa & Sturridge are all yellow flagged although only time will tell if these injuries are real or fictitious. In recent years this international break has become a popular time to make use of ones wildcard and with all the players who moved on transfer deadline day there will be significant changes to many FPL squads ahead of GW4. So whether you are currently on a wildcard or you are just trying to deal with these annoying ‘international’ injuries we have below outlined a number of players whom we feel can deliver over the coming weeks.

Fantasy Football Captains Picks Gameweek 4

Captain picksWhen asked by the FF247 beaks if I would like to help out with the captains article, without a moments hesitation I said ‘yes’. Then a few minutes later I thought… I HATE the captain rule. Absolutely essential to the game I admit and I would never want to see it taken away but are you like me? Do you see the ‘Team of the Week’ being boosted by a relegation-haunted reserve centre back with a captain’s armband on, who has just scored the first two goals in his career and kept a clean sheet against the strongest team in the league and some guy down in 3 quillionth place rises a zillion places because of it? And you think? How? How can you possibly have captained him? Just me? OK let’s go… Read More

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off!

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off!

Fantasy football tipsTo help you decide or just confuse you a bit more, we have asked 3 of our writers to pass judgment on what players you would do well to pick up and what players are better left out of the fray. We hope this is a simple straightforward formula that can assist you in your decision making as we ride out this International Break. We avoided including players like Siggy, Sterling, Ramsey or Costa as there is really no point. There seems to be overwhelming consensus on these cats.
Grab – You need this player on your squad. On the Def/Keeper categories if they select Grab, they will give us a name or two from said team. For example… Read More

Lets take a whistle stop tour of some of the more interesting transfers that occurred in the window.

FPL Wildcard time or Patience required? Some expert thoughts

FPL Wildcard time or Patience required? Some expert thoughts – Fantasy Football Tips 2014 / 15

Balotelli? Di Maria? Falcao? Welbeck? Cleverley? Boyd? No – the word on FPL lips this week is WILDCARD. An international break, a chance to gain some team value using unreliable price rise sites, a disappointing start to the campaign, an opportunity to buy those “must-haves” or just general boredom has led to thousands upon thousands of FPL managers pressing the button this week. A fortnight of unadulterated fantasy transfers awaits them as they subject themselves to the ultimate FPL thrill ride. Following on from Ed’s Wildcard guide we got some of the FF247 writers together to find out what their plans are for their wildcard. Have they activated their wildcard, have they a plan for later on in the season or do they have no idea what to do?! Read More
