    GW23 Preview: Pros/Cons for Arsenal & Manchester City Assets

    GW23 Preview: Pros/Cons for Arsenal & Manchester City Assets

    Though both clubs are coming off losses this past weekend, all FPL eyes remain on Arsenal and Manchester City. Each have a double in the upcoming GW23 and on this episode the Cheaters look at all of their players—from goalkeepers to forwards—and determine which are the best fit for different fantasy scenarios. How big of a rotation risk might Martinelli be? Is De Bruyne really that out of favor under Guardiola? Should captainers be concerned about Haaland's goal-scoring form? And if you need to pick one of Ødegaard or Saka, who should it be? Plus, we recap the events of GW22 thus far and celebrate some glorious Rashford points. Hail Cheaters!

    Rashford Triple Captain & Other DGW22 Questions

    Rashford Triple Captain & Other DGW22 Questions

    The Premier League made way this weekend for FA Cup fourth round fixtures and the results confirmed a double in GW22 for both Manchester United and Leeds—a massive opportunity for fantasy managers to gain an advantage. The Cheaters take a look at their own FPL squads and debate the best strategy for the coming weekend, as well as the pitfalls that await in the gameweeks to come. The biggest decision is shaping up to be playing the triple captain chip on in-form Marcus Rashford who has two bankable home games. But is it insanity to consider using your triple captain this season on anyone other than Erling Haaland? We also look at the close of the January transfer window and its impact on the second half of the season. Hail Cheaters!

We quickly review what was learned from recent matches like the North London Derby and Manchester City's continued up-and-down form and discuss how it all applies to the weekend. Plus, Manchester United might hold even more appeal in FPL with a potential double in GW22—what's Rashford's points floor if that happens? Then it's a listener mailbag in which we answer your questions on Mahrez, De Bruyne, Toney, Mitrovic, and more. Hail Cheaters!

    New Double Gameweek Announced - Players to Buy & Strategy for GW20

    New Double Gameweek Announced - Players to Buy & Strategy for GW20

    The results of this weekend’s FA Cup matches have brought about a newly-announced double gameweek for both Manchester United and Crystal Palace. That’s on top of the double now confirmed for Manchester City and Tottenham, suddenly making GW20 a potential FPL blockbuster. So, what’s the strategy? In this episode, Josh and Brandon debate the necessity of big player picks like Harry Kane and Kevin De Bruyne and if they can justifiably displace key fantasy assets like Salah, Mitrovic, and Almirón. Plus, we look at strategies for an under-the-radar Bruno Fernandes and other Manchester United guys—yes, including Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial. Then there’s the not-so-small matter of Haaland and the Triple Captain chip and we weigh the pros and cons of holding vs playing it. There’s a lot to discuss, so join us and get stuck in. Hail Cheaters!

We also debate the form—or lack thereof—of players like Darwin Núñez and Bruno Fernandes. Then we look beyond the upcoming FA Cup break and consider what's yet to come for FPL in January and February. Happy New Year and Hail Cheaters!

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.
