And so it begins, the barren fantasy wasteland known as Gameweek 29. Fantasy managers around the world are picking through scraps as forty percent of the league takes an FA Cup-induced EPL holiday. The majority won’t field starting X’s much less starting XI’s and those that do create vulnerabilities to the upcoming double gameweek bonanzas, whenever they begin. Oh what a week to be a dedicated FPL gaffer!
Welcome to Gameweek 28, affectionately known as the calm eye of the storm between the tragic Gameweek 27 and the potential calamity of Gameweek 29 (just look at that shitty fixture list). It behooves us all to enjoy the solid matchups afforded this weekend and rack up some points because next week is going to be u-g-l-y. Without further adieu then, let’s get on with it.
