Written by @CraigHazell – (that’s important!) #FPL GAMEWEEK 33 DEFENDER: Mason Holgate, Everton With Seamus Coleman no longer with us, Everton had to reshuffle their backline again and while I thought it would make them a fantasy football no go, it seems I was wrong. Jagielka has turned into a goal machine and Mason Holgate […]

#FPL OCD – Gameweek 11: The pantheon of great double acts? by @JohnOC1991 Give John a follow on twitter at @JohnOC1991 Let’s start with a flashback to last week’s article: “While the loss of 3 points will not define a season, that is 11 points lost from toss a coin decisions, and I am now […]

#FPL OCD – Gameweek 10: Coin Toss Decisions by @JohnOC1991 Give John a follow on twitter at @JohnOC1991 It was easy, in the wake of a few solid, and one excellent, weeks, to forget just what a frustrating season this can be. Just as it was all seemingly falling into place, a week arrives to […]
Gameweek 28 DEFENDER: Danny Rose – £4.8m (Home v Swansea, Away v QPR) It’s a Double Gameweek for Spurs following their Capital One Cup Final disappointment, and so whilst that means that you can probably guess at a couple of names which will leap off the page a little further down from these words, defender […]

With the midweek matches mere hours from kick-off, the weekend recap will be brief. Six of the ten Premier League GW24 matches ended in a draw, as the Merseyside Derby finished 0-0 in Steven Gerrard’s presumptive final appearance at Goodison. Gerrard’s performance barely registered on Fantasy Premier League manager’s radar, but he wasn’t one of […]
DEFENDER: Marcin Wasilewski – £3.9m (Home v Aston Villa)
Giant Polish defender Marcin Wasilewski has played the full 90 minutes in each of Leicester’s last 11 league matches, and whilst their largely awful form doesn’t make that anything to write home about, he could be a useful cheap addition ahead of the home clash with an Aston Villa side which struggles to score goals.
After a win (and clean sheet) at Hull and comeback point at Liverpool the Foxes will be high on confidence, and if Wasilewski can blunt out Benteke and co then they will be feeling even better about themselves.
MIDFIELDER: Jordan Henderson – £6.0m (Away v Sunderland)
All the talk may be about another Liverpool midfielder at the moment, but with the next five months effectively being preparation to become the club’s captain, Jordan Henderson will have to assume an even greater responsibility in the Reds side.
He’s already one of Brendan Rodgers’ main men, and as he visits former club Sunderland in Saturday’s early kick-off he’ll be eager to prove why, and to add to his two goals and six assists so far this season.
FORWARD: Harry Kane – £5.6m (Away v Crystal Palace)
He’s the talk of the Premier League after his New Year’s Day heroics against Chelsea, and Tottenham’s Harry Kane has quickly become one of those Fantasy players that you really can’t be without.
The forward’s price and ownership percentage continue to rise, and there’s every chance that his goal count will too as Spurs go to Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
THE OUTSIDER: Olivier Giroud – £8.2m (Home v Stoke)
No doubt desperate to make up for his red card against QPR on Boxing Day, Olivier Giroud is ready to return from suspension for Arsenal as they host Stoke on Sunday, and the Frenchman can make a positive impact this time around.
These are sort of fixtures which Giroud cleans up in, and if you can afford it then he could be worth a gamble this week.
THE CAPTAIN: Eden Hazard – £10.7m (Home v Newcastle)
Make no mistake, the dramatic reversal at Tottenham really wasn’t in the script for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, and thee Portuguese will be plotting his side’s recovery against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard sat out the Watford fixture in the FA Cup but he’ll return here, and is likely to be the main man for the hosts yet again in a fixture he scored a hat-trick in last season.
