Continuing with Always Cheating's pre-season FPL coverage, Josh and Brandon are scouting all twenty Premier League clubs. This week features the first half of the alphabet, previewing Arsenal, Bournemouth, Brighton, Burnley, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Huddersfield, Leicester, and Liverpool. Stay tuned for our next episode in which we'll discuss the remaining teams. Hail Cheaters!
In this special bonus episode of Always Cheating, Josh and Brandon are testing out the new FPL draft game. In frenzied fashion, battling countdown clocks and each other's indulgent banter, the hosts draft their own 15-player squads live on the podcast and describe everything you need to know to conduct your own FPL draft session. Always Cheating will be back later this week with more 2017/18 season preview episodes focused on the regular FPL game—which, of course, will continue to be the primary focus of the podcast. Hail Cheaters!
Ahead of the new Fantasy Premier League season, there are some rookie managers that could use a road map. And, let's face it, many of us veteran FPL managers are in need of tune-up when it comes to broader strategies for the game. In this episode, Josh and Brandon outline ten baseline rules (from statistical awareness and the herd mentality to squad depth and the role of luck) to help guide you through a successful season. Hail Cheaters!
The FPL site for 2017/18 has officially launched and Always Cheating is jumping in with initial impressions, including some of our listeners' reactions. We discuss the new "Free Hit" chip, some overpriced and underpriced players, and provide a quick rundown of first thoughts on all 20 teams in the Premier League. Stay tuned for more preview podcasts and content in the weeks to come. Hail Cheaters!
Always Cheating is back for a special mid-summer episode. With Premier League transfer news pouring in, we decided to review some of the key new arrivals (including Bernardo, Lindelöf, Sandro, Salah, Lacazette, and more) and then predict what their starting FPL prices could be. Josh and Brandon also look back at the top five players in each position from last season (the likes of Heaton, Alonso, Dele, and Lukaku) and guess the size of their price tags ahead of the new FPL site launch, which is meant to occur sometime next week. Send us your own price predictions and we'll check back to see how close we all were. Hail Cheaters!

Always Cheating hosts Josh and Brandon take a look back at personal highs and lows, our best transfers, the most frustrating players, and what valuable lessons were learned. Thanks to all of our listeners for sticking with us through an incredible year. We'll be back later in the summer to preview next season and do this all over again. Hail Cheaters!
