Premier League fixtures announced for 2018/19

The Premier League fixture list for 2018/19 was released today at 9am, giving Fantasy managers an early idea of which teams to target in the opening few Gameweeks.

Manchester City’s initial fixtures particularly stand out: the reigning champions begin with an away trip to Arsenal before they encounter all six of the sides promoted from the Championship over the last two seasons.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea only meet one of their fellow “big six” clubs in their opening half-dozen fixtures, meanwhile.

Newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers (EVE, lei, MCI, whu, BUR, mun) and Fulham (CPL, tot, BUR, bri, mci, WAT) have mixed starts, while Cardiff City have a decent trio of matches (bou, NEW, hud) to begin with before their fixtures toughen considerably: the Bluebirds then face six of last season’s top seven in their subsequent seven matches.

Wolves and Cardiff also have tricky-looking final-day encounters away at Liverpool and Manchester United respectively.

Southampton and Everton assets might be among those to consider in the opening months of the season: they are the only two clubs not to play any of last season’s top six sides in the first five Gameweeks.

    Hello everyone, been out of loop lately, so, can someone just brief me about any new rules about this WC fantasy football, how many chips do we get, when all can we use it? Like, triple captain, bench boost wildcard are there?
    Also, how much time left for deadline to pass?
    Would be a great help
    Thanks!

    GW1 punt (playing fantasy game in Norway)

    A: Kramaric (vs Nigeria)
    B: Belhanda (vs Iran)
    C: Meza (vs Iceland)
    D: Boutaib (vs Iran)

    ?

  3. Better Call Salah

    Is Trippier nailed on ?

    1. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Nope, but likely to start 2 of the 3 I guess

  4. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 7 days ago

    Opinions on 1st WC draft?
    El Kajoui
    Kimmich Meunier Danilo Varela
    James Eriksen Isco
    Lukaku Cavani Jesus
    (Uzoho / Mojica / Sanchez / Ndiaye)

    Havent been able to prepare before now and im not sure on the best picks...
    Dont see the point in going for 6m mids who will most likely blank. This team gives 6 heavy hitters up top and a really strong defense. Any advice would be great!

    1. Legend of Rosický
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Bench needs alot of work

    2. Legend of Rosický
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I would downgrade kimmich to Tagliafico or Pavard and get Someone like Belhanda/mezza in for sanzhez

      1. cmoorebling
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        No, keep Kimmich.
        Downgrade Isco to upgrade bench.

        1. Legend of Rosický
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Agreed^

  5. unlethal
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    What is with this Meza hype? I feel like Messi is the only Argentinian capable of producing points

    1. 007-BALEGIUM 17/18
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      He is good choice for his price imo

  6. Sweetboi
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    a) Pickford, Mojica, Isco & Werner

    or

    b) El Kajoul, Sabaly, Muller & Cavani

    1. Legend of Rosický
      2 months, 7 days ago

      B, though i think get Cavani and Werner both and get a 9m midfielder for muller

  7. Red.Devil
    • 5 Years

    Anyone know the set piece takers for today's game?

    Just bought Hazard and sold Jesus.

    You heard it here first.

      Smart move

    2. Legend of Rosický

      Hazard vs Werner when i alreay have Kaku?

      1. abraham22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I'm doubling up on Haz and Lukaku. First 2 games are incredible.. betting on Belgium hitting 7 in those fixtures... And Haz and Lukaku is being involved in most goals. I would be more resistant if there were bonus points on offer.. because then you kinda have a lower ceiling if you double up. That's the way I see it at least

  9. CelticBhoy1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Is Neuer nailed?

    1. CRO KLOPP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 7 days ago

      El Kajoui
      Meunier Danilo Trippier
      Eriksen JRod Willian Meza
      Lukaku Cavani Mbappe
      Uzoho Aldawsary Varela Pavon

      How s this?0.0 itb WC w3
      Should I BB?

    2. Chidge
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I'd avoid personally. Very likely to play, but GK is a good posistion to save money.

  10. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    I need to bench one of these players

    A) Granat (Egypt, Saudi Arabia)
    B) Taglifiaco (Iceland)
    C) Meza (Iceland)
    D) Danilo (Schwitzerland)

    Note: Russia plays twice in the first round in my domestic fantasy league.

    Currently on C. Thoughts?

    1. Atimis
      • 1 Year

      A

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Event though he plays two games?

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 1 Year

        Thanks buddy.. think I agree

  11. Atimis
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Do I need to chnage it again?
    I have 0.5 left so Im only thinking about Cueva to 6.5md.

    El Kajoui/Uzoho
    Meunier/Danilo/Trippier/Varela/Pavard
    Eriksen/James/Ziyach/Cueva/Meza
    Cavani/Jesus/Lukaku

    1. cmoorebling
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I'd use it to upgrade Pavard

      1. Atimis
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        The problem is I dont see good defs for 5.0

        1. Chidge
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Tagliafico?

          1. Atimis
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 7 days ago

            He aint 5.5? Have to check he yeah!

    2. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Our attack is the same.

      Keep the 0.5 or upgrade El Kajoui

      1. Atimis
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I've been thinking after all that maybe this 0.5 would be handy to make some transfer/upgrade after GW1?

        Sorry that you have to see my team again and again here 😀 but rly cant decide!

        1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Yup it will come handy for sure.

        2. cmoorebling
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Yeah not a bad shout

        3. Legend of Rosický
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Id get Werner for Jesus

          1. Atimis
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Want to see how they will play, may change after GW1 when we will know more

  12. Rinseboy
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Can you guys list the 4.5 mids I should look at?
    C Sanchez (CDM?)
    Inui (not predicted to start?)
    Guzman?

    1. Chidge
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I'm on Inui. He at least has some attacking potential and did well in their final friendly. Sanchez feels more likely to get a red card than do anything useful.

  13. Chidge
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Sabaly likely to start or are people just putting him in as 4.0 fodder?

    1. Legend of Rosický
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Nailed

  14. Legend of Rosický
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Lads, need help
    A) Werner + Paulinho
    B) Mbappe + Coutinho
    C) Mbappe + Paulinho and upgrade inui to Aldawsari

    1. cmoorebling
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      B

      1. Legend of Rosický
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Was considering werner since hes Cf and Mbappe plays on the wing. Do you think Jesus + Coutinho is the way to go?

        1. cmoorebling
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I'd take Jesus over Mbappe..
          And I'd take Willian over Coutinho.

          1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Willian over cou? No way 🙂

            Well depends on price of course

  15. cmoorebling
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Done (maybe)

    Pickford Uzoho
    Kimmich Meunier Danilo Godin Trippier
    Mueller Carrasco Cueva Kostic Nandez
    Lukaku Cavani Jesus

    1. Chidge
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Might be worth downgrading a defender or two to upgrade midfield. Pretty similar to mine though.

      1. cmoorebling
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks. I don't see many good mid-price midfield options though.

        1. Chidge
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          No, there aren't really any. I've got James but he's not cheap.

          1. cmoorebling
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Yeah, I like James but that'd involve too much defence surgery...

    2. Legend of Rosický
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Id get ziyech in for Carrasco and downgrade one of Cueva/Kostic to Meza

      1. cmoorebling
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks. I like Ziyach but WC GW3 and I don't like the 2nd fixture.

      2. Chidge
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Problem with Ziyech is his group. Spain and Portugal both have good defenses. Even Iran will be well organised.

  16. Ghost Gooner
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Is this due to the promoted teams? Or lack of big signings rumoured to come to the premiership?

  17. stupendous
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Not seen a single team with Messi or Ronaldo in. Expensive but you feel one will still be exploding at least.

    1. cmoorebling
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Better value options available IMO

    2. The_Adam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I may bring one of them in when I wildcard in Week 3, depending on whether they have qualification still to play for.

  18. CRO KLOPP
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 7 days ago

    El Kajoui
    Meunier Danilo Trippier
    Eriksen JRod Willian Meza
    Lukaku Cavani Werner
    Uzoho Aldawsary Varela Sabaly

    How s this?0.0 itb WC w3
    Should I do Werner and Sabaly to Mbappe and Pavard?

  19. Saosin
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    I play a Swedish manager version with no subs and weird budget. How is this team looking? Thinking of bringing in Trippier instead of Varela, same price. Transfers will cost 1% of player value.

    Uzoho (35 k)

    Danilo (30 k) Varela (30k) Sidibe (40k)

    J. Rodriguez (75k) N'Diaye (25k) Cueva (40k) Ferreira-Carrasco (45k)

    Cavani (80k) Werner (55K) Ziyech (45k)

  20. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Bench one:

    A) Taglifiaco
    B) Danilo

    On paper, Argentina got the better fixture. But Brazil are just playing so well... So its really not as straight forward as it might appear

  21. 007-BALEGIUM 17/18
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Good luck all for the tournament and Fantasy FrogBall WC 🙂

  22. Hazard is an FPL legend
    • 1 Year

    Best round to wildcard
    1) round 2
    2) round 3

      Round 3.

      1. Chidge
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        3 for me too. Avoid rotation from teams that are already through.

  23. johnnybeefcake
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    If I captain Aldawsari and he doesn't perform, am I able to change to Cavani or is it considered to be the same matchday??

    1. Ask Yourself (Lenin is dead…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Can change but if he gets sent off you won’t

      1. johnnybeefcake
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Is it even worth the risk of him getting sent off or should I just leave it on cavani for the next matchday

  24. johnnybeefcake
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    A) Zyiech and Sabaly
    B) Ljajic and Pavard

  25. abraham22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    James (Col) Vs Eriksen (Den) for the first 2 games? Purely on point potential ignoring captaincy option. I can't seem to split the two

  26. johnnybeefcake
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Last team, GTG?

    Muslera Uzoho

    Kimmich Meunier Danilo Varela Sabaly

    JRod Eriksen Ziyach Meza Aldawsari

    Cavani Jesus Lukaku

    0.0 ITB

  27. cmoorebling

    BB GW1?

    Pickford Uzoho
    Kimmich Meunier Danilo Godin Trippier
    Mueller Carrasco Cueva Kostic Nandez

  28. timPgoodwin
    • 4 Years

    Please RMT

    Muslera - Uzoho
    Hakimi - Pavard - Danilo - Varela - Meunier
    Eriksen - Mueller - Willian - Belhanda - Inui
    Cavani - Jesus - Lukaku

  29. ludaslol

    Double Uruguay D and double Brazil D alright?

    Set and forget game pretty much
