  1. A return to the Liverpool starting line-up for the first time since Gameweek 4 last weekend failed to produce the Fantasy points for Philippe Coutinho. With the Brazilian installed wide left, Brendan Rodgers moved from 3-4-1-2 to 4-4-2, allowing the winger to drift inside and dictate matters centrally.

  2. Brendan Rodgers’ recent shift to 3-4-1-2 has clearly made an impact up front for Liverpool. Luiz Suarez’ return from suspension has allowed the Reds boss to pair the Uruguayan with Daniel Sturridge and with both players showing scintillating form, the Merseysiders have racked up eight goals in three games in their new formation, compared to […]

  3. After firing United to victory in last Saturday’s 2-1 win at Sunderland, Adnan Januzaj has barely been out of the headlines. Handed his first league start by David Moyes, the youngster’s impact against the Black Cats has sparked the latest Fantasy bandwagon as managers scramble for his signature. So far, the 18-year-old has acquired over 105,000 new owners in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game…

  4. Luis Suarez’ return was eagerly anticipated by Liverpool fans and Fantasy managers alike last weekend. The Uruguayan hogged the headlines for all the right reasons by bagging a brace against the beleaguered Black Cats to send the Merseysiders up to second in the table.

  5. As Arsenal built on the back of their midweek Champions League win at Fenerbahce by easing past Fulham at the Cottage, Theo Walcott once again missed out on the goals. While Lukas Podolski took centre stage with a double, Olivier Giroud’s opener hinted at a new-found consistency – continuing the scoring spree that racked up […]

  6. With only a single match played out by most of the top-flight teams, it’s perhaps a little early to read too much into the data delivered from the weekend’s action. Then again, we wouldn’t be Fantasy managers if we weren’t keen on scouring the numbers and analysing patterns as we line up to make our first trades of the brand new season. The Seamus Coleman bandwagon is gathering speed…

  7. While there’s little doubt that Theo Walcott is the Arsenal Fantasy midfielder of choice these days, Jack Wilshere’s Fantasy potential has also taken a turn for the better in recent weeks. Analysing the statistics over the last four Gameweeks, it’s perhaps something of a surprise to see the Gunners midfielder as the most creative midfielder […]

“A hit a week every week and finish in the top 50k is just fine and dandy for me. I play the game for the fun and how it improves watching Stoke vs Cardiff on a Monday night in November.”
