Are matches against the ‘big six’ to be feared in FPL?

Everton sit near the bottom of our Season Ticker over the next seven Gameweeks, with the Toffees taking on all but one of the traditional ‘big six’ and Leicester City over the next two months.

Last week we wrote about how owners of Richarlison (£8.1m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m) may be at a ‘form versus fixtures’ crossroads as we approach Gameweek 27, given the attacking returns those two players have been racking up since Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival.

The blobs of red, either on our Season Ticker or on Fantasy Premier League’s own Fixture Difficulty Rating scale, are off-putting to the eye but are Everton’s fixtures really that bad and are the ‘big six’ really to be feared?

We delve into our Members’ Area data to pose those questions in the article below.

We will also include Leicester in this study, given the difficulty rating applied to the Foxes on both FPL and our own site.

Only subscribers can read on but those wishing to sign up to our site can do so via this link, with monthly and half-season memberships available for £2.99 and £9.99 respectively.

      Triple Wolves NO

        What's wrong with triple Wolves? 🙂

          In my opinion their content form doesn’t justify that much investment- too risky

            They have played Liverpool and Man United last 2 though!

            Leicester might not be an amazing fixture but Norwich, Brighton, West Ham, Bournemouth and Villa to come in next 7 is potentially juicy!

              europa league starts next week there will be fatigue and rotation if they get through

                Possibly. Still hoping the fixtures will see them through!

                Jimenez the postman and Traore the enabler.

                Boly unlikely to be rotated you'd imagine, but of course fatigue a possible factor for the squad as a whole.

                  Should I do it then or anything else?

                    go a sheffield utd def over boly and youre g2g

                    11 days, 23 hours ago

                    I'm getting 3 with Boly aswell, rather than a Sheffield defender.

          2. tutankamun
            • 10 Years
            11 days, 23 hours ago

            Traore and Jimi have reasonable form, Boly just back. All 3 are good value imo.

            Fixtures look decent and Wolves are a good team, nothing wrong with a triple up.

            1. Daghe Munegu
              • 3 Years
              11 days, 23 hours ago

              Would you do it then? Or something else?

              1. tutankamun
                • 10 Years
                11 days, 23 hours ago

                Would defo get Jimi

    3. Ian & Zen

      11 days, 15 hours ago

      First, wait until after Wolves game this weekend.
      Having 8 viable front men is good planning for blanks
      For now, I’d go for Jimenez & Boly (if you’re going to play Boly, if not Traore.
      Extra transfer not worth the risk as I don’t think you’d get the 4pts back this week so can do next week
      Nothing wrong with triple Wolves though personally I like to spread the risk

      1. Daghe Munegu
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 15 hours ago

        I can't get Boly and Jimenez without a hit

    4. Old Man

      Nothing wrong with that as far as I can see.

    This gameweek feels worse than an international break...

    At least with an international break the Gameweek is done. But this is dragging!

    Hope it's a good match tomorrow.

        For sure...

        Son (c) if Liverpool is called off!

        Hoping they all go ahead though, need to see some football

            Nice!

            He's my only Man City player so I'm hoping he does well (obviously!), but also slightly panicked about KDB and Aguero 😆

      2. Bare Foot United

        Because of Dennis the menace ?

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      Not only that though, we are stuck with below par articles. Many of them plainly states the obvious.

      By far the best article (if we can call it that)
      Is the Hot Topic ‘The Gameweek Review’
      By Fantasy Freak.

      It’s superb. I always look out for his posts.

      LateRiser is another superb writer. FPL virgin has done some good stuff too.

      These writers needs more air time

      That, sir, is a fact.

      For us North Americans, what is the weather forecast looking like?

        Don't think we know much for certain at this stage. Just have hope that Dennis doesn't wreck everything!

        Amber warning for rain. Apparently set for a month worth of rain in 24 hours. But only starts around 3pm

    I don't understand the upvoting mechanisms, the flag, the number by the side of the name, etc, on this site. Where is it explained, please?

    1. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      11 days, 23 hours ago

      The upvote is a bit like a like on Facebook.

      Showing that you liked a post or found it useful etc.

      Flag is used to flag a post to a mod. Maybe for a hot topic or because it needs to be removed.

      The number is how long the account has been around for.

          Think that's replies but am on phone right now.

          Handcuffs is to link directly to that comment.

          If you click it the URL will then be a direct link to the comment instead of just to the article URL itself

      Upvotes are simple - positive responses to your posts unless the mods choose to remove them.
      Flag - use if you think someone has posted something offensive. Doesn't work if you flag a poster who is a constant wind up and posts shite ie Bro****n.
      The number is years of membership.

      1. GREEN IS GOOD

          Thanks everyone. As someone who uses social media only occasionally, I am always surprised there are no clear summaries of how it works on an individual site readily visible.

    Bold move to write a whole article essentially rubbishing your own fixture difficulty ratings....

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Thought I might as well stick the boot in while everyone else was doing it.

  9. waldo666
    • 9 Years
    11 days, 23 hours ago

    Starting to feel slightly concerned re. Salah (C) TAA (VC), never even entered my thought process about potential postponements when selecting them tbh.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      I changed from that to Salah (C) KDB (VC) for no real reason just before the deadline and then obv regretted it the other day … things change quickly in this game

      1. waldo666
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        Indeed they do!

    2. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      I was listening to one of the scoutcasts and they recommended splitting C and VC between early and late fixures for this GW. I think due to the less of pressers for the second part of the GW.

      Good advice I think.

      1. waldo666
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        Hmmmm, maybe I should start listening again, haven't since early doors this season as it's lost it's zest for mine.

      2. Rhinos
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        pretty obvious anyway seeing as Liverpool and City have the best captain options

        1. waldo666
          • 9 Years
          11 days, 22 hours ago

          Certainly in hindsight KDB (VC) was the way to go, that however also had potential to go tits up in the end. Oh well, fingers crossed all games are played and no one is disadvantaged.

          1. Rhinos

    Boly or Doherty?

    1. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      Doherty could be a shrewd differential with the upcoming fixtures but I'd still find it hard to pay that kind of cash for him

    2. tempest
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      If you’ve got the cash, he does seem to be getting forward a lot at the moment....

    3. pitstop1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 22 hours ago

      I’m sticking Doherty in but I’m sure I’ll regret it when the postponements kick in and I don’t have the funds I need to manage. Could be great in the meantime though, especially that NOR fixture.

    There is an ultimate conflict with this site - Profit v Content.
    Initially in the embryonic days of the business Mark got it spot on when he was doing this as a side line , content was everything. Then the business grew and inevitably advertisers became very interested in promoting themselves on the site and quite rightly Mark embraced this. I think that he recognised when the right time occurred to get out as a Director and I cannot fault him for this. However this enterprise has become a cash cow and as members you are feeding this . Content has become very much diluted ( with a few exceptions) and the comments on match days are generally abysmal due to a number of regular wind up merchants and some complete idiocy which is inevitable.
    How does this move forward ?
    People quite rightly get banned for offensive comments but people don't get banned for constant trolling and wind up comments . Why is this ? I've been banned previously for speaking my mind and sometimes I've been out of order but what about the consistent offenders ?
    Interested to hear views.

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 22 hours ago

      I don't think it is profit v content for whoever owns the site now (seems to be a faceless someone since Mark resigned and has subsequently seemingly cut all ties) - it's just profit, and while the £££ are rolling in, they don't seem to have any motivation to change anything and are happy just let the cash cow churning.

      1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 22 hours ago

        Yeah maybe I was a bit clumsy with the headline . I meant to say that now this place is all about profit and the mods are getting totally exploited . Cash cow fine for now but in a couple of years time or less new competition obliterates this place with financial backing. Mark knew when to quit.

      I'm only really here for the members area stats and tables. The articles are good, but yes I am admit the comments are generally pretty dire, but that's the same anywhere on the internet really.

      I love this site, but wouldn't pay again- it was too confusing, and dull. But fair play. It's changing with the times. I've set myself an aim to lose interest in football before the corrupt Qatar WC. I can't support this corrupt industry in all conscience..

          In one breath I want promotion in another I don't. Gives our shitey owners even more excuse to take money out of the club and yet again we will have nowhere to play next season. Mark Robins is miracle man and I just wish that our owners would just sell up and eff off.
          We are going up btw .

                yep and a keeper who makes Bravo look like Ederson. Hopefully Augustine will hit the ground running. Huge game against Fulham incoming then we've great home fixtures so fingers crossed

  17. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years

    So.
    I can chosse this GW between Boly and Doherty.
    Then i will have either 0.4 or much more left.
    With the 0.4 i could upgrade Henderson to Loris or Dubravka or Martin to McCarthy.
    With Boly now i could upgrade Martin to Pope, which would give me a decent rotation into GW31 and lets me keep Henderson.
    I would have a secure starter in GW31 Pope too.
    I will definitely not FH GW31, so that would be useful.
    Dubravka has a 50% chance to play in GW31 and maybe a little less chance to keep Cs than Henderson in the same fixtures almost.

    Asking:
    So basicallY, Will Doherty outscore Boly by 4-5pts+ in the next 5 or 6 fixtures?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 22 hours ago

      I think they will score the same.

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 20 hours ago

      Thinh is, i dont need the extra cash besides Pope, as i will save a FT and then get a cheap 31 playing defender, if Soy doesnt play in 31 and the will get Rich for KDB/Grealish + DCL for Ings/Jimmy/Vardy.
      All cheap enough

      1. Pakse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 days, 14 hours ago

        The one thing I keep wondering about GW31 planning, spare cash, and keeping an extra FT for that matter, is what happens if the prophecy of a Man City DGW29 does actually occur. It potentially makes the 28/29/31 flow pretty awkward.

        Do you have the ability to upgrade to get another City player if needed? and would you want to?

    3. Pakse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 14 hours ago

      Do you want a defender with a premium price (Doherty) that you will likely start every week, and gets the odd goal/assist. Or one who is a nailed starter but now probably currently undervalued due to previous injury (Boly)?

      I suppose it depends who you are upgrading, the general starting potential of defence and team, and whether you want a set and forget or happy with a rotational option.

      We have very similar teams, and both want to play through GW31 if possible. I've gone Boly myself but can't resist a value buy, and my TV got hammered in the first part of the season.
      Just out of interest what's your thoughts with WC timing? 32/33 or 35/36

      Who will you transfer out btw? Lund?

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Lund..
        Dont know about 34/37 as of yet

    What would you suggestI do here? Sort of clueless atm

    McCarthy
    TAA Gomez Lundstram*
    Salah (C) KDB Martial Traore
    Aguero Vardy DCL
    ____
    Dubravka; Aurier Hayden Reid

    2 FT 0.1 ITB

    A) Aguero + DCL -> Jimenez + Ings
    B) Lundstram -> Egan and roll FT
    C) Something else (what?)
    D) stay put and accept that you lose a FT

    I like A but it could backfire big time. B really depends on whether or not lundstram can regain his place.

    Jimenez or Ings for the next few weeks ??

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Both will be popular.
      Ings has the fixtures but has dried up in points.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        11 days, 21 hours ago

        Ings is also coming from a hard run of fixtures. I can see him score with the upcoming fixtures.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          11 days, 20 hours ago

          Agree, I think TM is being pretty hard on him.

          A lot of people (including me) will have both, though.

          1. TorresMagic™

            Guess I dodged him of late and got lucky especially vs Pool. I bought him this GW as he's due to score soon.

      Why play. Just add a week in May. If Liverpool vs Norwich gets postponed to another game week. I better get an additional Free Hit as recompense

      It’s BS to allow the MCI to count as GW26 for this truly boring, 21-day, nonsensical Gameweek

    TM can i have your best guess on my post above.
    You have been a reliable source of answers when the world seems to ridicule one.

    How is your team going so far this week?
    Didnt see the final choice but you were doing a couple of bigger transfers last week, didnt you?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      11 days, 20 hours ago

      Boly given the combos you can make with the change.
      11 from 3, just Deeney to Ings last week. Maybe a -8 next GW.
