    Negredo is injured and he'll likely start up top with Aguero. He also has a great goals scoring record. And...this is the big one...he's only 8.5m. » Read

  2. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    the pricing makes it possible this season...there's no 14m players and lots of quality in the 8.5 and 9m price range. If it doesn't work I can always downgrade to good cheap diffs over the first few weeks. » Read

  3. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    This is great - taking the idea and making it your own. I'm not sure what your team was like before...but by having six quality players from good sides in attack you should have a great start. » Read

  4. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    With so many 9m players its possible to do this at the start...in previous years we've had 14m players and more 10m plus ones so its been more difficult. » Read

    In that case I'm preaching to the converted - you are already focusing on good players from good sides. :-) We will succeed or fail together. » Read

  6. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    No ...I usually have poor starts by getting the wrong differentials. this year I'm trying something different and want a team that's covered in Chelsea and ManC blue and Man U and Arsenal Red. » Read

    Rooney (c) looks good and he is not shy about picking up bonus. Switch c to a Chelsea player as well during the first few weeks. » Read

    I know. :-) This for me is the most dullard post I have ever posted. » Read

    BTW Marshall and Mannone were by far the standout goalkeepers in terms of saves...there's a massive drop to fourth placed Speroni. Plus third placed Ruddy is no longer in the Prem. » Read

  11. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    He was last year's best keeper that is still in the Premier League. Marshall made the most saves, followed by Mannone in second. He may well rotate that's why I prefer the tweak that involves getting a 4.5m keeper to rotate with like Krul who can also be a good back up. » Read

  12. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Tweaks can be made by preference with just one or two cheaper players from other sides. See above Siggy in for Herrera frees up money to make Ramsey into Sanchez or Fab into Haz. » Read

  13. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Well yes, I did the above to make an exaggerated point that a team dominated by top 4 players can look pretty good. In reality the main point is the tweaks to be made section. For example my current side is similar to the above but with Sigurdsson and Davies in. the other benefit of the above strategy goes back to yesterday's hot topic - of preparing for a bad start. If a 7.5m striker from say Swansea or Newcastle emerges as essential then the downgrade is easily done. Upgrading to a top 4 player who runs riot is a more difficult tactic. This way you get a core of great players in good sides and can then add in differentials when they emerge - rather than before and risk them not actually being very good. » Read

  14. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Another great argument for a top 4 side. ;-) » Read

  15. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Having a team of 10 top 4 sides is a differential itself. how many teams will have that combo. If I was minded to go with this strategy I'd also pick differentials from good sides. I'd much prefer t take a punt on Schurlle coming on and scoring a brace than a new player among Newcastle or Southampton's ranks. » Read

  16. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Mid-Price Forwards 4 days, 2 hours ago

    In that case the above could be tweaked to include downgrading Silva to Nasri and getting Rafael/Jones in from Man U....or Davies if you think Spurs will finish in the top 4. » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topic Top 4 team The search for this year’s great differential is arguably like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are draft FPL teams with players like Austin, Pelle and others all full of hope that these Premier League new boys will succeed and their clubs will prevail. But history shows us that the real fantasy points are among only a handful of sides mainly from the best four each season from Man U, Man C, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool. With this in mind I thought I’d construct an outfield 10 only from the teams I think will finish in the top four. I’m discounting goalkeepers as previous season’s have shown that rotating cheaper players offer a better chance of points. Man U, Man C, Arsenal, Chelsea are my chosen 4 …obviously if this is something you wanted to do you may have different ideas regarding Liverpool or Spurs achieving top four status. Looking at it I’d be more than happy to go into the season with this £100… » Read

    Herrera looks good from the match reports read last night. Looks like he could be a good source of assists. » Read

    ...obviously his Prem League experience proved him to be anything but a natural finisher. ;-) » Read

  20. Fantasy Premier League – Player List Analysis – Budget Forwards 4 days, 19 hours ago

    He got 25 goals in Wolves' championship winning season. The golden boot winner in the championship that year so was very much hyped up as a good finisher. » Read
