The RVP Factor: Discount Strategy Ups All.

Hi everyone, this is RV. I've been off fantasy blogging for a bit and my mate AM has been doing a pretty good job managing the site alone. One thing I learnt being away and not writing was that doing well in fantasy is more to do with the a consistency in player picks than weekly player picks. Let me explain. I have to be honest, this season has been the worst I have performed in the last 9 years and I sit on a rank of 29000 something. My rank was in 700s' last year and was my best performance ever. I have always been in the top 2500 since the past few yrs. This year I kept making a critical error in my strategy ever week. I kept switching my "to bank on player" in and out of my team losing out on some huge points output and some heavy discounts.  More after the bump:

The Matchday Insight : Week 13

Something good about midweek CL matches is that the weekend approaches really fast and i cant wait to sit back and catchup on most of the matches this coming weekend.Been travelling for over two weeks and been managing to catchup on football on my phone.Well now back and looking forward to a new matchday.

Highlights of week 12 : Consistency of Mr. Rvp , back with a bang Mr. Adebayor , Liverpool's commanding win over a poor Chelsea team, first loss of the season for Newcastle and Spurs climbing up the ladder to 3ed spot.It must be a bad time for a Chelsea fan as things are not going their way this season and they seem to be running out of ideas.On the other hand Arsenal, who didnt start well , seem to have found their rythem and have been sailing quite comfortably to top 7 spot.

Manchester clubs are far the most threatening teams this season and with both needing to get a result in their last group matche in Champions league , it will be interesting to see how they go about their matches in the coming 2-3 weeks.I do expect alot of rotation and resting of players as its a do or die situation in the big money league.

Lets get straight to Week 13 :

The Matchday Insight : Week 12

Finally the international break seems to be coming to an end and how much have we missed the EPL these two weeks.In previous years i used to somewhat look forward to internationals where England were playing but ever since Capello and Terry have taken over the team i just dont bother watching them playing and stick to the post match score updates.

Without wasting much time , lets get straight to Week 12 picks :

The Matchday Insight : Week 11

Coming off a good weekend as some of the picks continued to give alot of points such as Gea , Vdv , RVP , Hernandez etc . It does sometimes make it tougher going in to Week 11 when we have a 100+ pts target in mind and keeping the rank up . Well thats what we are here for to make things simpler and competitive.

Assuming most of the fantasy teams would have Silva , Aguero , Gea  any of these three doing good or bad doesnt effect the rank much but its the rest of the team that makes all the difference. Keeping these 3 is a must and i would never advise you to change them.

This being a matchday before another long international break , lets get it right to have a good satisfying fantasy weekend.
