The Matchday Insight : Week 36

The last week had 2 teams from the bottom half of the table play twice i.e Aston Villa and Bolton where we saw lots of fantasy managers score more than the125 points mark.There weren't many high average players to pick from but still the outputs were positive.The likes of Petrov and Eagles did turn out to be great investments.Even the cheaper options returned 2 to 3 times their values which was good to see.

After 2 high scoring weeks in a row, we head towards the big double games this week where the likes of Tottenham, Newcastle, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Fulham, Stoke and Bolton play twice.There seem to be many options for you to choose from as all these teams contain high potential players who have had a great season in terms of fantasy points.

In other fixtures we have both the Manchester clubs facing each other in an all important derby, Arsenal who have been off the boil, with Rvp completely out of form, have a tough away trip to Stoke.

Lets take a look at the teams playing double games this week :

The Matchday Insight : Week 35

Coming off a great matchday last week where most of the picks did really well and gave high double figures.I was out for most of last week but i did see all your comments and was happy to see mostly everyone had the Tevez-Aguero combination which gave 62.5 pts together.

With just 4 matchdays to go,its all to play for as many teams will be putting their best XI on the pitch and with most of the teams out of other competitions, there is no risk of rotations or resting of players.

Week 35 contains all 10 fixtures plus an additional fixture i.e Aston Villa vs Bolton.Therefore these two teams play two games this week.This is an interesting twist to the tail as most of the fantasy managers now need to compare the good one gamers to lets say an average double gamer options from these two teams who are not in the best of form.

The Matchday Insight: Week 34

The semi finals of the FA Cup take place this weekend where Liverpool play Everton and Chelsea are against Tottenham.
This has left us with only 6 league games this weekend.
Its an ideal situation for the ones who don't hold many players on discounts but
Incase you do hold 'in-form' players like Cisse,Dempsey,Ben Arfa etc its time to make some tough decisions.
I would suggest you to keep only those discounted player ( who don't play this week) who you have at minimum half their price.For e.g incase you have Cisse at lesser than 13, you could hold on to him and hope he returns the points in the double game week in Week 36. 
Similiarly Ben Arfa could be held on to incase you have him at less than 7.
Marginal discounts should be ignored this week all 6 fixtures look tempting.

The Matchday Insight : Week 32

Important news is that the deadline for Week 32 is on Friday and not on Saturday as the matchday begins on Friday - Swansea vs Newcastle and the next week ( Week 33 ) deadline is on Monday.

Before we get into the analysing Week 32, its worth mentioning the high scoring week we have just come through. 12 players scored +20 points and most of you must have seen your score go past the 100 mark for Week 31.Players like Sigurdsson, P.Cisse, Valencia, Vdv, Balotelli have been common picks with most fantasy managers but those who gambled with Adebayor and Torres must have seen themselves go up in ranks.

The point worth a mention is that does one spend 26+ on Rooney or Rvp? or do you spread those funds to get players like Adebayor, Welbeck, Balotelli or may be even the likes of P. Cisse or Young at retail prices.These are crucial decisions as they might cost you huge points and rank movements.
