FPL is back in less than 36 hours and given that we've had a 3-month hiatus, form and stats essentially go out of the window. As a result, we've tried to compile a set of teams to target based on their fixtures and motivation.
First off, teams returning from a 3-month

It is that time of the year again when everyone is trying to fit Salah, Sterling, Kane and all the premium assets into their teams whilst others are looking for options that could set them apart from the template and differentials that are owned by less than
DGW32 is almost upon us and most managers have been waiting forever to use arguably the most powerful chip in the game, the Free Hit which gives you the ability to make unlimited transfers that are reflected only for that particular game week.
So today, with the International break drawing to
GW31 is around the corner and every manager has their own set of problems. Are 8 players enough, should I play my free hit? Should I take a -8? We've got you covered.

With the Christmas fixtures done and out of the way, we can now finally take a step back and take a look at the state of things in FPL. Most managers have
We're nearing the halfway mark and most of the players that we'd picked out over the past few weeks have returned well, including Fabianski, Kolasinac, Snodgrass, Lacazette, Mitrovic, and Trippier etc all providing returns. This has given us confidence to try and come out with more such reports. Hopefully, our
GW 15 was one full of rotation and surprises with many of the usual big hitters missing including the likes of Andy Robertson, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Sadio Mane and players like Mohamed Salah and Alex Lacazette making impacts off the bench.
Today, we look at players across the pitch who
With GW12 on the horizon, most FPL teams have Patricio in goal, Alonso in defense, Hazard in midfield and Kun Aguero leading the line, so today we look at the differentials we could pick for the upcoming fixtures to get ahead in the mini-leagues.
Trusted differentials in the EADF community and
Leads are getting bigger in the mini-leagues and playing catchup is getting ever so hard. After consulting a few FPL players in our private league, we decided to approach this gameweek in a slightly different manner. With a quarter of the season almost done, it is our opinion that using
With Liverpool and Chelsea playing each other, some of the league's big hitters might be up against a stern challenge and might make us look elsewhere for captain options. Eden Hazard did score in the week against Liverpool, and Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane will fancy their chances against a
Going into GW6, most FPL teams appear to have a set template, whether it be Sadio Mane in midfield, Sergio Aguero leading the line or Marcos Alonso in defense. So today, we look at the differentials, the players that can help you move up the leaderboard in your mini-leagues.
With GW4 on the horizon, and almost everyone having the standard Sadio Manes and Benjamin Mendys of this world, we dive into the less owned differential options for the weeks to come.

The first two FPL Gameweeks have flown by and after the high scoring first game week, reality set in, in Gameweek 2 with most teams struggling to muster up a massive haul, bar those that gave Aguero the armband.
From Gameweek 3, we look at the most promising options across the
The Premier League is back, which means your favourite team is the second best thing awaiting you this season, after the Fantasy Premier League, of course.
However, with all the big guns quoting some exorbitant figures, we look at the players you can get in on the cheap to ensure you
For over 3 seasons now, Spurs have easily been the most consistent side in the Premier League across the board. Whether it be Kane scoring goals, Eriksen setting them up, Alderweireld-Vertonghen being a very able Centre-Half pairing or Pochettino securing some very bright talent.
But for some reason, they've always fallen
World Cup favourites, Brazil kicked off their World Cup campaign against Switzerland, in a game that ended 1-1 with goals coming from Coutinho and Zuber in each half.
Brazil lined up as expected with Jesus leading the line ahead of Firmino and Coutinho slotting into midfield in a 4-3-3 system with

The international break is over and it is finally September, which means one thing for Fantasy managers, Harry Kane is up and about once again!
No,but jokes aside the Englishman looked good for England over the break scoring twice in as many games.
But looking beyond Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford looked bright
The first two game weeks have flown by and a lot of big money signings would appear to be stagnating in most managers’ teams.
