Fantasy MLS Is Back

This season us FPL addicts face the bleakest summer ever. There are no Euros. No World Cup. No Copa America. No Asia Cup. I guess we do have the Confederations Cup, but honestly, is that going to scratch your FPL itch on the beach while the kids pour sand on your head and bury you under a giant sand castle?

How about Fantasy MLS? FMLS is the second biggest non-premiership Fantasy Football game in the world, and the season opens on the 4th March (3rd March in US of A, 4th March in all points East). Yes, not long to go! It is the perfect way to us busy this summer. Continue reading

Late Fantasy Football Transfer

Harry Kane in Leaving it Late for Game Week 15

If there has ever been an early transfer week, this might be the one. Aguero four-match ban spurred us all to prompt action, with Euro games still ahead. Have you chosen rightly? Kane, Costa, Ibrahimovic, Defoe, Austin (ouch!), Iheanacho… – the competition was fierce, and the favourite choice, added to more than quarter of a million teams, is dissected by Van. Continue reading

Late Fantasy Football Transfer

Fiesta Time in Leaving it Late for Game Week 12

After five consecutive wins, Chelsea players are undoubtedly a hot property and it’s no wonder everyone is buying. Wanton recommends two of the Blues this week (no, it’s not Hazard and yes, it has a lot to do with Spain). Somewhat surprisingly, Sanchez (fatigue scare, cash issues?) and Walker (tough away games ahead?) are among the highest transferred out players, and Wallace tries to figure out if you should do the same, hold anyway, or even buy. Continue reading

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. Indeed, with 9 clean sheets in one game week, those who have spent wisely on their defense have certainly been the beneficiaries of this weekend’s FPL action demonstrating you don’t always need to spend big on attack. Continue reading

Late Fantasy Football Transfer

Midfield issues in Leaving it Late for Game Week 9

It looks like the midfield line is what worries fantasy managers the most this week. The rise of Allen and Walcott and the decline of Capoue and Antonio has forced some managers to already make their transfers. However, before you make your final decision whether to jump a bandwagon or stick with underperformers, read the Van’s and Wallace’s verdicts. Continue reading

Will buying a Stoke City player drive you potty?

Stoke City are the focus of this week’s article and there’s a lot of things that I want to look at. I want to focus briefly on why Joe Allen is doing well, look at their other key attacking players including Arnautovic and Shaqiri, assess their defensive chances and then look at their next opponents to try and draw some conclusions about Stoke’s FPL chances over the next set of gameweeks.
