Polling Station Results for Double Gameweek Fixtures
Much like the current state of American politics, and in particular the race for the presidency, the Fantasy Premier League is deliberating great change. Dramatic, we know, but in light of additional matches that will pepper overall scores by a potentially big margin, millions of teams are set to gamble with their squads. Established players from Spurs and Leicester are now on the chopping blocks, and for a limited period there is the case for a high volume of Everton, Crystal Palace, and Man United players, among other teams. The downside is a fixture-list conflict that exists between now and the end of the season. The Hype Train asked our FPL community on Twitter what they thought would happen in the upcoming fixtures. Here's their answers.
BPL Fixtures (GWs 33-38)
There's just seven Gameweek's left of the season, 77 games, and three Double Gameweek's to contend with before the 2015/16 season is all wrapped up into nice ball, and football fans within the FPL can get excited for the European Championships in France, glad that their is no worry of their fantasy players picking up injuries or suspensions before the start of the new season.
Below are the TV fixtures for the rest of the season. The only graphic that bears changing is the GW37 fixtures, with May's televised games yet to be announced.
Double Gameweek 33 Insight: Crystal Palace & Everton
By next weekend, based off digging and gut feeling, most of the active players in the FPL are going to play their second wildcard before the close of the GW33 deadline. Two teams feature twice in said Gameweek; Everton and Crystal Palace. The former is heavily inconsistent, whilst the latter just can't string together a point, let alone a win. The bigger picture will see players activate their wildcard for GW33, so they can play a chip such as bench boost or triple captain for DGW34, but there is the potential for big points when Crystal Palace entertain Everton in the additional fixture. We analyse the FPL options for both teams, looking at the pros and cons regarding their inclusion. All aboard?
