Does a 3-5-2 make sense?

I was wondering about the suggestion that a 3-5-2 might be good for GW1, and at first, this seemed a poor decision. After all, my thinking was, forwards score many more points, in general, than...

Professor M's (delayed) Numbers: Week 38 Best Team

With the World Cup coming up, and the great work that Das, Kellz and Stall are doing in helping us get ready, I almost feel that this post is irrelevant. Still, I do not want to leave the season...

Professor M's Numbers: Weeks 35 and 36 Best Teams

I am sorry not to have posted this or been around the past week or so. End of the semester craziness coupled with my wife's company shutting down (i.e. no more job) has made life hectic for me. We...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 34 Best Team

This week's question, class, is: When is a DGW not a DGW? Answer: When the DGW footballers play so poorly that they cannot even outscore those with one match! I guess it was not quite that bad,...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 32 Best Team

Well, that was a pretty "meh" week for me. It started with me not saving my team, even though I am 99% sure I had, and thus keeping Oscar, Demichelis, and Chester rather than having Sessegnon,...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 31 Best Team

What a gameweek that was, huh? After bouncing around quite a bit, my 296 points were good enough to raise me about 78 places in the Global rankings from 531 to 453. That was not as big a move as I...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 30 Phantom Aces

I haven't posted phantom points in a while, mainly because I have been busy. I had a few extra minutes this week, however, so I thought I would update everyone. With the DGW affecting our choices,...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 30 Best Team

It was not a great week overall for fantasy scoring, and even a seemingly okay 75 points dropped me another hundred or so places from 439 to 531. I think that I am in that range of scores where if...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 27 Best Team

It is becoming quite clear that picking up Sturridge as soon as he came back from injury has been one of the keys to a team's fortunes. Early in the season I was hanging around in the Global Top 50...

Professor M's Numbers: Week 24 Best Team

It was a low-scoring week for fantasy for many of us, but you could have scored 288 points if you had gotten all the choices correct. Ah, who are we kidding...nobody captains Charlie Adam, right?
