This season's opening weekend presented a wide range of FPL outcomes, but some teams and players proved easier to predict than others. On this week's episode, the Cheaters discuss what stood out in GW1 and how it changes the fantasy calculus as we look ahead to GW2 and beyond. Most important of all could be the choice of gameweek captain between Mo Salah and Erling Haaland. And what should managers do if they have Kane instead—stick or twist? Plus, we talk Chelsea, Mitrovic, Darwin Núñez, and more. Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

This week the Cheaters attempt to solve some of this pre-season's biggest unanswered fantasy questions: After nightmares last year with Ronaldo and Lukaku, is Erling Haaland about to spring another "big up front" trap? How worried should we be about highly-owned players going into GW1? What mid-table teams are set up for the best start? How many premium players can FPL managers afford to set up with? And what's the impact of the new goalkeeper pricing structure? Plus, a few more conundrums—join us for the discussion!

As we patiently wait for the new FPL game to launch, Josh and Brandon couldn't resist an early summertime episode to check in on Premier League transfer dealings and other news that might impact the upcoming 2022/23 fantasy season. Of course, the winter World Cup in Qatar will be an outsized factor in our approaches, but just how early in the season will we weigh that? And what is our initial assessment of the three promoted clubs? Plus, we measure our own excitement over recent moves by Erling Haaland, Darwin Núñez, Fábio Vieira, Nick Pope, and more.

2021–22 Season In Review

2021–22 Season In Review

2022-05-2301:09:54

The Premier League drama was in full force for GW38 and it felt like a fitting way to bid farewell to another fantasy season. With the tumultuous campaign now behind us, it's time to reflect on what we did well and what we need to improve upon as FPL managers. We discuss the data revolution's complexity, the value (or lack thereof) of knowing effective ownership, and learning how to play your own game. A big thanks to everyone who has tuned in throughout this year. We're grateful for our place in this community and have enjoyed interacting with so many of you. Enjoy the summer and we'll see you all soon enough! Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Looking ahead to the final gameweek of the 2021/22 season, the Cheaters are analyzing all ten fixtures and sizing up the stakes for each team and key players—anything from league placement and golden boot to absolutely nothing at all. Who are the top fantasy targets? And who are the full-on punts who might help you catch your rivals? Best of luck to all for a strong finish to what has been a chaotic year in the Premier League. We'll see you on the other side for our end-of-season wrap-up episode. Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Now in the midst of the blockbuster double GW36, planning for doubles this FPL season has become commonplace. Next weekend brings us another step closer to the end with one final double. These teams with two fixtures aren't the sexiest in terms of fantasy options: Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Leicester City, Everton, and Burnley. But are any of them worth it? And do they make GW37 a compelling moment for a Free Hit chip? On this episode, the Cheaters weigh the chip options for both GW37 and 38 and debate the ultimate fate of Salah and Kane while Son continues to run riot. Hail Cheaters!

Twelve teams will double in GW36 and many of those doublers are—for a change—actually quite good. The opportunity for massive fantasy points is there, so how best to prepare for what might be this season's most important deadline? The Cheaters take stock of their own squads and review transfer targets, chip strategies, and a spectrum of captaincy options ranging from "sensible" and "bold" to "completely nuts." Plus, we debate Spurs assets, Manchester City attack, and other key questions for the FPL home stretch. Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
As GW34 winds down and we prepare for the next deadline, Josh and Brandon set themselves for the FPL season's final four gameweeks by reviewing what they like and dislike about all twenty Premier League clubs. We remind ourselves of which clubs have remaining doubles (good or bad) and which players still have potential to swing our fantasy fortunes. Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices.

The twists in the FPL season keep coming and Josh and Brandon jump into GW34 preparations with the newly announced doubles for Chelsea and Manchester United. Mason Mount stands out as the form attacking player in blue, but has Timo Werner done enough of late to win a spot in our fantasy teams? It's even more challenge to convince us the Manchester United form will carry them into the top four, so then what's the appeal of Bruno or Ronaldo? We also discuss the incredible run-in for Manchester City and debate where they currently rank in our chaotic list of FPL priorities. Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices.

With Josh out sick, Brandon is joined this week by Dave Weigner-Lodahl to review the Premier League action of GW32. We of course discuss the dramatic draw at the Etihad—and the continuing saga of Mo Salah's fantasy form—as well as Spurs' purring attack, Arsenal's implosion, and Chelsea's potential bounce-back. Transfer plans for GW33 also need sorting, especially with certain doublers like Wout Weghorst firmly on the chopping block. Are there any FPL assets we truly fear for this coming weekend? And are our best captaincy options exclusively single-gameweekers? Plus, we look ahead to the other announced doubles in GW36 and consider the best chip strategies to capitalize. Hail Cheaters!

Next Sunday Manchester City will host Liverpool in what will no doubt be the Premier League's biggest, most consequential fixture of the season. What will be the trick to navigating this match from an FPL perspective? On this episode we look at the recent history of this rivalry and key metrics that will inform what we expect from defense and attack: Is it time to bench our premium defenders? Is it crazy to captain Salah? Plus, we consider the form team in Spurs heading into GW32 and how to handle their fantasy assets down the stretch before we get to our "On the Beach" power rankings.

As we come out of this season's final international break, plans must be put in place for the FPL home stretch. Firstly, the Cheaters offer up a refresher on what's new and upcoming with the fantasy schedule—which teams have doubles, blanks, and fixtures yet to be rescheduled—and how the fixtures should impact our strategy. Then we run through priority player and team targets, whether you're playing a wildcard together or simply plotting your next few free transfers. And finally we come to GW31 and what's immediately in front of us. Best of luck to everyone as we enter the End Game! Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices.
