    That “difficult” second Gameweek. You can shine on your debut but it’s the follow-up that can so often find you out. I got through the opening weekend unscathed. I’ve had no major fires to put out – no significant bandwagons missed that forced my hand and pushed me into spending points on trades. As I’ve […]

    The double Gameweek is a testing time – a period that puts Fantasy managers through a whole gamut of emotions, with joy and regret dished out in equal measure. As I continued to mull over my own options this morning, it struck me that the double Gameweek experience is deserving of some thorough analysis – […]

    Motivation is a problem. It’s an x-factor that can warp results, inspire teams to rip up the form book and earn goals and points from unlikely scenarios. At the same time a lack of drive can see established sources of Fantasy points fail to live up to their billing and disappoint. Then there is our […]
