Vela: Visiting Hawthorn Hitman

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 4 views
West Brom have one of the better runs for the next few weeks, including a great home double in week 27 against West Ham and Wolves - there should be at least a few points in it for a Baggie player or two in this gameweek. Over the next 5 weeks, their toughest competition comes from Man City away in week 26, but is bookended with a match against Stoke and Birmingham as well as a match against Wigan in week 25.

Cuellar at Villa & the Block Defence.

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 28 views
Aston Villa are in a great run of defensive form at the moment, having kept 5 clean sheets in the last 6 games. One of the main beneficiaries of this has been Cuellar, who has played practically every minute of every game. He also popped up with a header goal to help Villa draw with Manchester United this week.

Fantasy League Gold: N'Zogbia

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 15 views
Charles N'Zogbia is in the form of his life and with 2 doubles in GW26 and GW30 this lad could prove incredible value. He has knocked home three goals in the last six games that Wigan have played, and has two double gameweeks coming up in gameweek 26 and gameweek 30. Wigan's runs of fixtures is also appealing, the toughest opposition between now and March being Tottenham at home.

Transfers for Double Gameweek Madness

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 24 views
The revised fixture list for gameweek 22 has been posted to the Fantasy Premier League website, and there are double gameweeks a plenty. Liverpool, Tottenham, Bolton and Arsenal have now joined Manchester United and Hull City with two games in this round. Potentially this could be the biggest points round of the season.

Tip: Think Tottenham

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 10 views
Gameweek 22 sees a double gameweek for Manchester United and Hull as their match was moved due to Cup commitments. That means this weeks fixtures are, on paper, a dream for Manchester United: home to both Burnley and Hull.

Whilst on first glance it may appear to be worth loading up on Man Utd players, be wary of getting caught short for the following gameweek.

Snow Making Captaincy A Gamble

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 15 views
With all the cold white weather that has hit the country lately, many games have become doubtful for this weekends rounds. At time of writing a few games have been postponed, meaning your players from that team will not get a run. This will have the biggest impact on your captaincy, since the Value or Form guidelines for emergency captain have a great way of leaving you with the second (or third) best option.

The Importance of a Quality Bench

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 6 views
The Wigan - Bolton match being frozen off at the end of gameweek 18 brings home a reminder of the importance of having a bench with players who are capable of contributing points if they become needed. With some notable injuries to a few marque players (ala Fabregas) having a solid line up of quality substitute players becomes even more pressing.

Klasnic, The Man From Bolton.

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 2 views
Ivan Klasnic is a man in form. In the last four matches he has scored 4 goals for Bolton, and accrued 4 bonus points. Admittedly these results have come against some middling teams - Fulham, Wolves, Manchester City and West Ham, but his forthcoming fixtures look equally useful: Wigan, Burnley, Hull and Arsenal in his gameweek 20 double fixture, then Sunderland on the 9th of January.

Blackburn Backline, Stoppin' Goals.

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 3 views
While Blackburn may be struggling to score goals at the other end of the field, they continue to compensate for this by remaining tight across the back line. Blackburn have kept four clean sheets in their last five games and Sam Allardyce has emphasised the need for this to continue in order to achieve a climb up the table.

Get Going with Tamir Cohen

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 1 view
If you are looking for a cheaper midfielder for the next month or so, Tamir Cohen is a central midfielder with Bolton who may be worth considering. He is involved in the double gameweek in GW20, and compared to cheapie favorite Bowyer, has a more favourable run. Boltons forthcoming fixture list reads:

- Man City (h)
- West Ham (h)
- Wigan (a)
- Burnley (a)
- Hull City (h) Arsenal (a)
- Sunderland (a)
- Arsenal (h)
- Burnley (h)

Some of these teams present rather leaky defenses, and (at time of writing) at £4.

Injury Woe To Grow For Manchester United

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 5 views
Manchester United have a fantastic run of fixtures until the end of January, as we have mentioned before. So it would be no surprise to learn that 9% of teams have persisted with John O'Shea in their teams defence, despite him not playing in the last 3 weeks. However word from Old Trafford today is that both O'Shea and Jonny Evans will be out until the New Year.

Planning Your Future With Arsenal

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 6 views
Both Stoke and Fulham have a double header on Gameweek 20, after missing out on Gameweek 17. Arsenal and Bolton are the other teams that gameweek who benefit from the revised fixture list.

The tricky part for a lot of players is that by now many have shaped their teams into something close to what they would like, making the dilemma not so much about who they should transfer in, rather who they will transfer out.

Manchester United's fixtures are approaching a golden period of unprecidented easiness. Over the next 9 weeks, the toughest fixture may well be Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

West Ham v Man Utd
Man Utd v Aston Villa
Man Utd v Wolverhampton
Fulham v Man Utd
Hull v Man Utd
Man Utd v Wigan
Birmingham v Man Utd
Man Utd v Burnley
Man Utd v Hull

A fixture list like this makes Manchester United players definately worth having.

Franco For Forward

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 15 views
Guillermo Franco is a 33-year-old Mexican striker acquired as a free signing for West Ham, and has been a starting forward since Gameweek 10. Over the last 5 games he has scored twice. At £5.0m, he represents a player who may make an excellent cheap third striker. With the long list of injuries hitting the major strikers (Drogba, Van Persie, Torres, and a possible hamstring injury to Darren Bent) and the forthcoming absences of Stoke, Fulham, Everton and Hull from Gameweek 17, active strikers may be thin on the ground.

Gameweek 17 Replacements

Fantasy Premier League Tips and Review at related • 32 views
Gameweek 17 is fast approaching, and for the unprepared may cause something of an issue as four teams do not play. And as the four teams represent some of the more popular value players, there is a risk your team may contain several players who earn no points that week. Now is the time to make some strategic use of transfers to plan ahead.
