We’re feeling festive here at TSZ Towers after Gameweek 15 came bearing gifts, namely points, 85 of them to be exact. In a rare set of fixtures for the Premier League in which all 20 teams scored at least once, we ranked at 7,277th in the whole wide world and now sit within the top 50k at 47,230th (which is really hard to say when you’re showing off to everyone in the lunch queue).
Premier League games are coming thick and fast, with little time to recover from a chaotic Gameweek 15 and prepare for this weekend’s action. Man City just about held off Watford thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and Leroy Sane (£9.5m), with a heavily-rotated Liverpool side overcoming a 1-0 deficit to beat Burnley 3-1. Chelsea, meanwhile, lost their lead and slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Wolves.
Rotation is the name of the game ahead of Saturday's 11:30am deadline; the start of a third gameweek in nine days. We have combed through all 20 Premier League press conferences to bring FPL managers the need-to-know team news, injury updates and predicted XIs for GW16.
Rotation rumblings dominate the Gameweek 16 captain picks after many FPL bosses suffered in GW15. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has a juicy home fixture this weekend as Alexandre Lacazette looms, while Harry Kane will look to prove his rotation immunity. Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling could both benefit from midweek benchings, though fantasy managers will be reluctant to trust real-life counterparts Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.
Our first point of call for this week's discussion was the two free transfers burning a hole in our pockets...
Midweek Premier League action is already here for a football world that is still taking deep recovery breaths from Derby Sunday, which saw drama in both North London and Merseyside.
Ahead of Tuesday's 6:45pm deadline, we have combed through all 20 Premier League press conferences to bring FPL managers the need-to-know team news, injury updates and predicted XIs for GW15.
FPL’s most expensive forward looks set to be Gameweek 15’s most selected captain, while the game’s priciest player may benefit from being hooked early in GW14. Pitch time is the driving force behind this week’s Manchester City pick, while a favourable home fixture promotes the prospects of a mid-priced striker ahead of tomorrow's 6.45pm deadline.
Ahead of Friday's 7:00pm deadline, we have combed through all 20 Premier League press conferences to bring FPL managers the need-to-know team news, injury updates and predicted XIs for GW14.
The Fixtures: Friday evening deadline, rotation looms ahead of midweek matches, Spurs’ fixtures turn, Pep roulette and Hazard worries
After a generally high-scoring start to the FPL season, Gameweek 13 was a sharp reality check that brought blanks for stars like Sergio Aguero (£11.5m), Richarlison (£7.0m) and Eden Hazard (£11.1m), whilst the much-anticipated Wolves clean sheet was destroyed by Huddersfield’s Aaron Mooy (£5.1m).
FPL bosses will be hoping for home runs from their heavy-hitters this weekend as the fixtures point to assets from Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool. With Gameweek 15 kicking off on Tuesday, the armband decision could come down to a matter of minutes.
We equipped ourselves with two transfers heading into the international break given that injuries are a common occurrence at such times, and wasn't that just the case! The FPL website became littered with yellow flags, yet we were fortunate enough to avoid most of them. Here's a summary of our FPL team heading into Gameweek 13.
