Late Fantasy Football Transfer

Gundogan, Aguero and Son in Leaving it Late for Game Week 11

After a powerful display against Barcelona on Tuesday, Manchester City players are the most popular choices on FPL market this week. And I don’t mean Kevin De Bruyne. On the other hand, Tottenham’s declining form has spurred almost 100,000 managers into getting rid of Son. Should we follow suit? As usual, VanDan and Wallace share their opinions on the players everyone’s talking about. Continue reading

Sergio Aguero – Time To Bite The Bullet?

Sergio Aguero is the hottest prospect in the Premier League. In the last five seasons, he’s broken twenty goals three times, and when he hasn’t it’s because he’s been injured. As far as FPL, he has broken the two hundred point barrier on more than one occasion, was in the dream team last season and is selected by over 43% of teams. He is a must buy. Continue reading

Early Fantasy Football Transfer

The Earlyish Transfer for game week 10

The top teams only keep an average of 1 clean sheet for every 3 games. Yet Spurs are on 5 clean sheets in 9 games, Arsenal and Chelsea are on 4 in 9, and Leicester City, Bournemouth and West Ham on 3 in 9.

Each week we partner with the excellent Fanfeud to produce the “fantasy football weekly” podcast.

We also check out the RMT Bot’s team in the Elite 50 game for October. Continue reading
