Keeping a close eye on status updates can make all the difference when it comes to Fantasy Premier League.
You probably know the feeling.
One of your players performs heroics week in, week out, bringing home points a plenty, but then you see something like this.
#FPL status update – Vardy (LEI) [Hamstring injury – 75% chance of playing]
— #FPL Tracker (@FPLTracker) December 21, 2015
“Vardy’s down to 75% availability,” you ponder. “Will he play on Boxing Day?”
You exhaust all the tools at your disposal.
You frantically trawl Twitter.
You bend the ear of Ben Dinnery.
Ranieri was quoted as saying: “Everyone is OK.” Presumably that includes Vardy, although Drinkwater won’t be risked https://t.co/6xOfWJe8we

You find yourself flailing through the forums.
All to see if there’s any injury news from the Leicester training ground.
Or is that just me?
The availability scale has historically been an aspect of the game that trolls even the most fool-hardy of FPL bosses.
Players play despite being down to 50%, while those with the hallowed blue ‘i’ are benched without forewarning.
But do you know what?
There’s a solution.
Grab a cup of tea, chill out and wait until Saturday comes.
This mug’s 100% available.
And I’m already feeling much better…
