    The Yahoo experts give you their views on how you should use your Aguero and Fabregas money, and give you a couple of interesting wild card options.

  • Beat the Beast: In form Carroll replaces Austin for Week Sixteen

    Week 16 brings a few tough decisions for part-time Fantasy expert and full time Beast, AFC Wimbledon forward Adebayo Akinfenwa. After much deliberation, there are two changes to the Beast XI for this game week.

    Bayo keeps faith with his back three and goalkeeper for this weekend’s games. “Courtois was rested in midweek and will be nice and fresh to face Hull. Given their misfiring strike force I would expect him to have a quiet day. The same applies to his team mate Gary Cahill.” On the rest of his defense, Bayo says; “West Ham are flying and Cresswell is a big part of that so I’m keeping him. Southampton have been a bit off form but I expect them to beat Burnley so Bertrand keeps his place.”

    Yaya Toure (Manchester City) / Midfielder / £13.83million -  Last season saw Yaya Toure at his most productive when Sergio Aguero was out, mainly because the Ivory Coast midfielder took over penalty duty and was afforded a larger share of scoring chances. We're back in that situation again with Aguero out for "six to eight weeks" due to a knee ligament injury, and there are clear signs that Toure is getting back to his best form. He’ll also be

    What a GameWeek! Chelsea lost their first league game, there were three 0-0 draws,  5 players were sent off and West Ham are 4th!

    The winner of Game Week 15 is Duncan FC with 136 points! Let’s look at their winning team.

    Anyone who predicts that Andy Carroll would make a storming return deserves to be top of the leaderboard! He was only 4 points behind the player with the most points, Robin van Persie. Good thing Duncan FC had them both up front!

    The midfield brought in a total of 42 points, and all did well despite underwhelming performances from their clubs. Yannick Bolasie, Gylfi

    With the fun of week 14 just over, week 15 is already upon us and our expert and self confessed ‘Beast’, Adebayo Akinfenwa is here with a new formation and changes throughout the Beast XI.

    Costa comes into a new looks 3-4-3 formation alongside Alexis Sanchez and QPR’s Charlie Austin. “Chelsea looked good against Spurs this week, but I don’t for a moment think that that will keep Costa out. He’ll start and I fancy their chances against Newcastle.”

    The Chelsea front man comes in for Tyler Blackett who drops to the bench. “I wanted to go with a front three and Blackett was on the bench in week 14 and he will fulfill a similar role for me!”

    The other change in the defense see’s Ryan Bertrand of

    It was a strong performance from Kone but not forgotten that has earned the manager the Winning Manager prize pack and the Yahoo Fantasy Premier League Manager of the Week Trophy!

    konebutnotforgotten2konebutnotforgotten2

    Lets look at this weeks winning team, who went with a strong 4-4-2 formation.

    In a time where people were writing off Simon Mignolet and Robin van Persie, this team had boldly picked them and reaped the rewards. Mignolet had a run of picking up negative points but kept a clean sheet and made 3 saves. This made him the third highest scoring goalkeeper this week behind Joe Hart and Costel Pantilimon. Van Persie silenced his critics with a top performance against Hull City, getting a goal and an assist. He was the top striker this week, two points ahead of Danny Welbeck.

    This team can count
