Fantasy Football Game Review

Reviewing the Gundogan bandwagon

Only three weeks back Ilkay Gundogan was “the man” in the Manchester City’s midfield. Ignore Kevin de Bruyne. Move over David Silva. There is a new cat in town and he’s just scored two goals against the Baggies. Yes, Gundogan was Capoue rebooted.

Yet we now find that Gundogan was not even in the squad for the Palace and Burnley game. However, if at the time you’d have looked at Gundogan’s underlying stats. and, in particular, compared them to his Manchester City team mates, then you’d have seen a big red warning flag in the shape of “if it looks too good to be true, its probably too good to be true”. What can we learn from this? Continue reading

But which one is better for your fantasy team? Continue reading

Late Fantasy Football Transfer

Midfield issues in Leaving it Late for Game Week 9

It looks like the midfield line is what worries fantasy managers the most this week. The rise of Allen and Walcott and the decline of Capoue and Antonio has forced some managers to already make their transfers. However, before you make your final decision whether to jump a bandwagon or stick with underperformers, read the Van’s and Wallace’s verdicts. Continue reading

Fantasy Football Podcast

The Fanfeud Fantasy Football Weekly podcast for game week 9 produced by Fantasy Football First

Each week we partner with the excellent Fanfeud to produce the “fantasy football weekly” podcast. This week we discuss if the FPL is fickle as Stoke go from zero to superhero in two games; if after 10 years at Arsenal, is it finally time to think of Walcott; has Charlie Austin reported in for duty; and are Hull a little rubbish or a lot rubbish. We also check out the RMT Adviser’s algorithm team in the Elite 50 game for October. Continue reading
