    In our first of three player preview episodes, we take a closer look at the top forward options and discuss where they each rank in terms of fantasy point floors and ceilings, injury and rotation risk, surrounding squad quality, and that all-important fun quotient. Stay tuned for our midfielder, defender, and goalkeeper previews coming in the next week. Hail Cheaters!

    FPL Is Back: First Thoughts, Player Prices, and New Game Mechanics for the 2024/25 Season

    FPL Is Back: First Thoughts, Player Prices, and New Game Mechanics for the 2024/25 Season

    The FPL site is officially live for the 2024/25 Premier League season, meaning it's again time to log in, secure a low team ID, and get down to business. In this episode, we run through initial thoughts on player pricing and changes to the overall game mechanics. Which players are priced too high, too low, or just right? Can we possibly afford Erling Haaland at £15 million—officially the most expensive asset in history? And how are we feeling about the new ability to bank up to five free transfers? Plus, we of course discuss ways we'll make this FPL season more fun than the last. Hail Cheaters!

    Attacking the Forgotten FPL Gameweek 36

    Attacking the Forgotten FPL Gameweek 36

    We're close to GW35's end and it's still a shootout between Son Heung-min and Cole Palmer. Brandon is joined on this week's episode by friend and veteran FPL manager Dave Weigner-Lodahl to unpack the stories of the weekend and then look ahead to a forgotten GW36 that's sandwiched between two doubles. It's a game-week that will likely come down to the captaincy pick, but have we learned anything about Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, or the two Manchester clubs that might give us an edge going into the next deadline? Hail Cheaters!

Great Guys, Great Pod

Brandon and Josh bring humor, high production value, and fun to the pod. It’s great for anyone interested in Fantasy Premier League, or even if you’re just looking to understand the league and find the individuals to watch out for as a fan.

Come for the laughs and the blazing-fast, Always Cheating famous “lightning rounds.” Stay for the community and cheer they will bring to your new favorite hobby.

Please no politics

Love the podcast & listen every week. However I wish they would just stick to soccer talk & not get political. Assuming all their listeners have the same political views as they do is not correct. I get they both live in the far left leaning bubble of NYC but their listeners are from all over the US & world. I don’t see how pushing BLM & rainbow causes or bashing Tucker Carlson & Trump are helping them gain fans.
