Fantasy Premier League

Read up on all our prematch fantasy picks and post match reviews related to the Fantasy Premier League game.

    Fantasy Premier League | GW16

    Gameweek 16 is the fifth game in 2 weeks for clubs playing in European competition, so as usual, the normal word of caution on squad rotation needs to be made. That said, with some teams having already qualified for Europe and with Gameweek 15 resting some players for Europe, it should be a bit more predictable to see which players will start for those clubs. We revert back this week to picking a full team of 15 players for you to choose from.

    Fantasy Premier League | GW13: Moneyball Wildcard

    This week, we play a Moneyball Wildcard. The concept of Moneyball is popularised by a 2003 Michael Lewis book and lately made into a Brad Pitt film. The science behind Moneyball is of course ridiculously complex but for the purpose of this week's wildcard FPL picks, we focus on one key stat not often investigated by FPL managers - FPL pts per Value ratio. 

    There are some surprise picks here and the team is assembled at a low price of 88.7!

    Fantasy Premier League | WC GW12

    If you have not used your wild card, then congratulations to you as you are probably doing quite well and haven’t had the need to perform surgery on your squad. Nonetheless, we have come up with a wild card squad for you to consider at a budget of 100.4m.

    We have gone top heavy with 3 pricey forwards instead of spreading the budget around. This offers us the flexibility in case we need to beef up on other areas. One major deficiency with this team would be the lack of Manchester City players, where their defenders are too expensive for our liking and their attacking players too prone to rotation. One possible solution to accommodate Manchester City players would be to drop Morata for Abraham and upgrade Choupo-Moting to De Bruyne.

    Fantasy Premier League | WC GW11

    GW 10 has just passed us. After 10 weeks, I’m sure some of you are languishing in mid-table or near the bottom of your respective leagues. Those ‘sure good’players that you have picked out at the start of the season just haven’t worked out, have they? It’s time you cut your losses and look elsewhere, especially when we now have a better idea who would be better choices. If you hold on to those poor performing players when others are dumping them, you will lose even more value on them and that will affect your overall budget. Time to use your wildcard and catch up on the league leaders!

    I suspect most of you would have less than the full budget of 100m after all the wrong picks and the loss of value of your players. This squad picked out only cost 98.9m so I’m sure all of you should be able to pick up these players. On top of that, it’s good to always keep some spare change so that you have something with work with when you try to bring in your future transfers.

    The ‘Free Hit’ Squad

    For GW7, it is daunting if you don’t have the key assets from Manchester United when you know that bottom club Crystal Palace visits Old Trafford. Luckily, the introduction of the ‘Free Hit’ chip this season could become your savior as it allows you to make unlimited changes without taking a hit. This chip is  also useful if you think your current squad is good for the subsequent weeks except this week. With this in mind, we have put together a ‘Free Hit’ team which comes in at a total budget of just over 100m.

    The Lowest Budget FPL Squad You Can Assemble and Not Embarass Yourself

    With the last few weeks of FPL not throwing out plenty of surprises and with both Manchester squads starting the season firing on all cylinders, it seems like everyone's choices in their FPL squad is to try to go cheap in order to accommodate as many players from those teams as possible. This week, we try to do something different and showcase a full FPL squad that you can assemble on the lowest available budget but that can still allow you to potentially compete with others. Is that even possible? read on to find out more.

    10 Differential FPL Players to watch

    One of the finer points in FPL is picking quality differential players. These are key decision points because differential players set your squad apart from your competitions and on the occasion your differential player bags a goal and an assist, no one else have him and it will help you pull away from your rivals. 

    We dug deep and picked our list of differential players who are worth a second look. We have classified them into 3 categories, according to their Selected by % in FPL.

    • Uncommon (1% - 5%)
    • Rare (0.2% -1%)
    • Epic (<0.1%)
