Among the standout phrases from ProPundit Pranil Sheth when he discusses his stellar Fantasy Premier League career is - “hit home, hit hard”.
Making high impact decisions quickly around form and fixtures is how Pranil has achieved the remarkable feat of two top 200 finishes and never completing a campaign outside the top 50K in his last seven seasons.
The pinnacle of this remarkable run was his finish of 77th in 2015/16 and reaching the dizzy heights at one point during the 2012/13 season of 22nd, before finishing in 189th spot.
Over these campaigns he has ruthlessly focused on ensuring he has the best chance of beating those around him with strong, often low-owned, premium options that can better popular picks each week.
A case in point was this season when he successfully backed Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah with the armband over runaway favourite Jamie Vardy.
During his chat with Joe, Pranil reveals why he is happy to take hits as he looks to take out his opponents swiftly. Bold moves are also needed for success when reaching the very highest rank spots, he explains.
Such is his commitment to FPL that he took a break during the 2014/15 campaign to spend time setting up his business. Embarking on a season not fully focused on FPL is simply not an option for Pranil.
Elsewhere, he explains why his ranks were so bad at the start of his FPL career in 2008 and why friendly rivalry took precedent back then.
