This article is part of our Fantasy Premier League Rankings series.
With only eight matches in Gameweek 27, the lineup shuffling period of the fantasy Premier League season truly gets underway. The phrases "single gameweek player," "blank gameweek player" and "double gameweek player" will all be very popular over the next few months, a fun and annoying wrinkle in the league's official game.
This week leaves us with quite a few popular options unavailable to start, with Manchester City, Everton, Chelsea and Brighton all having their matches rescheduled. Based on ownership, the third-most owned forward is unavailable, as well as eight of the top 20 most-owned midfielders. There are plenty who have been preparing for this, but it's still a major blow for those who are hoping to ride the way without drastically changing their teams or using a free hit.
