Time to swap in Alexis & Mkhitaryan?

The much hyped and drawn out Sanchez – Mkhitaryan transfer has finally happened, slower than a bunch of schoolboys swapping their Match Attax cards. So should we also be thinking about one or both of these attackers being part of our fantasy setup? Both are classified as midfielders in the FPL game yet both can play in a variety of positions, either on the wing, up front or as a more classic No. 10. Both also look like they will be heavily involved within their respective first teams, though you never can tell what goes on in Mr. Wenger’s...

January transfers – unlocking their potential for fantasy football

We’ve already discussed how van Dijk might fit well into our fantasy squads given his attributes and Liverpool’s potential. The January transfer window and inevitable rumour mill and gossip columns had me wondering which players that could be on the move might make them appealing to our FPL teams. Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil spring immediately to mind. If Sanchez moves to Man City as expected, he could become a devasting purchase with all that City possess up front. Equally, though the Pep rotation policy and depth of squad would leave a hanging doubt over his points total and...

A shrewd purchase for Klopp and for you?

Virgil, the Roman poet, was known for his epic works, in particular, describing personal struggles in fulfilling their destiny. And so his namesake may have just achieved the same in finalising his move to Anfield. Many fantasy football managers have kept (probably rightly) away from the Liverpool defence given the propensity for the Scousers to self-destruct within their back line this season. However looking beyond the superficial reveals another story now and opens up the possibility that this is the time to move Van Dijk into our FPL teams. Liverpool currently are in a strong fourth place in the...

FPL Budget Strikers – the King is dead. Long live the King.

Unless you want a threadbare feel to the rest of your team, it’s difficult to throw a lot of investment up front in a fantasy football squad. Kane, Lukaku, Ageuro, Jesus, Morata all in the FPL game are north of a whopping £10 million. So normally we would consider at least one “budget” striker. Interestingly, that return on investment from the big hitters hasn’t been as promising as the first few weeks would have suggested. The Man City rotation policy likely has hindered the points haul of Ageuro and Jesus. Kane has been hit and miss recently (although still...
