Queens Park Rangers have Niko Kranjcar for a second season on loan after an agreement was made with parent club Dynamo Kyiv.

Kranjcar was a successful loanee at Loftus Road last season, helping Harry Redknapp guide the club to promotion from the Championship. Of course, the two have a history going back to Redknapp's days at Tottenham. Speaking of Spurs, former teammate Sandro will be in midfield as well. Sandro's spot in midfield would appear fairly nailed on, then Joey Barton and Leroy Fer come into contention, so it may be difficult for Kranjcar to crack the starting lineup without someone dropping form or getting hurt.

Queens Park Rangers added a key figure to their first team with the signing of Sandro on a three year deal, handing over £10million to Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer fee.

The Beast will be now be unleashed at Loftus Road, where he immediately upgrades the Rangers' midfield. He reunites with Harry Redknapp, who took the talented Brazilian under his wing when he broke into the Premier League in 2010. Sandro hasn't had a history of offering much in terms of fantasy appeal, but he will provide a presence in the middle that will open things up for other attacking-minded Rangers and their value looks to be on the upswing.

Charlie Austin scored the only goal of the game as Queens Park Rangers grabbed their first points of the season.

Harry Redknapp's came into the game off the back of three straight defeats without scoring a goal, but Charlie Austin has finally given his manager something to smile about. Austin played as the main striker with Loic Remy excluded from squad prior to a move to Chelsea, and he scored from close-range following a corner on the stroke of half-time. Sunderland put the home side under plenty of pressure, but Rob Green deserves credit for a couple of remarkable saves to keep his side in the lead, and QPR are out of the relegation zone.

Steven Caulker scored solid fantasy points in Week 2 despite QPR's 4-0 defeat at Tottenham.

One of the highest scoring defenders in Yahoo's game last season, Caulker is back in the Premier League with QPR and has picked up where he left off despite his side's poor start to the new campaign. Caulker grabbed 12 points against Spurs thanks to a host of passes intercepted and blocks, and he also had shot on target as he continues to look dangerous from set pieces in the opponent's box. The defender appears fixture proof, but you'll need to pay a premium to fit him in your fantasy side now, as his price has risen to £13million.

Queens Park Rangers ran into a buzzsaw at White Hart Lane today as they were thoroughly beaten by Tottenham in a 4-0 final.

Well, Leroy Fer made his debut. That much can be said. Nevermind that he managed to pick up a caution and was subbed off rather early. It was just an awful day for QPR. Harry Redknapp's tactics were completely ineffective as his players were leaving Spurs wide open and providing little pressure on them. They had one decent attacking chance from Matt Phillips, but it sailed over the bar. Outside of Steven Caulker, who just racks up fantasy points regardless of how poor the team he plays for is, there is nothing attractive about their prospects right now. They need a guy like Mutch to start making some noise.

Queens Park Rangers continue to add Premier League experienced players to their promoted side, now having signed Leroy Fer from Norwich City for three years at a reported £8m.

The move is a good one for QPR and Fer alike. Fer is too talented to spend a year in the Championship and Rangers were in need of an upgrade in central midfield. The addition spells the end for Alejandro Faurlin as a regular with Fer slotting straight in to partner the enigmatic Joey Barton in the middle. Fer has goals in him, he scored one for the Dutch as a substitute in his very limited pitch time at World Cup 2014.

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar has flown to Portugal for talks with Benfica.

34-year-old Cesar was Brazil's number one at the World Cup, but he's being kept out of the QPR side by Rob Green, having not played a game for Rangers since April 2013. Reports suggest the keeper's wages are astronomically high and the hierarchy are keen to off-load him as quickly as possible to free up some salary funds for new acquisitions.

Queens Park Rangers are hoping to complete a deal to sign Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer for a fee of around £8m

Despite Norwich's relegation, Fer had a very decent debut season in the Premier League and he would be a good signing for any of the promoted clubs. QPR seem to be heading the list of suitors, with Redknapp desperate to add to his central midfield options before the transfer window closes.

Joey Barton is back in the Premier League with Queens Park Rangers and is off to a solid start in the Yahoo fantasy game.

Barton isn't everybody's cup of tea but he can be a useful fantasy asset, thanks to his all-action midfield style combined with set piece duty. QPR were defeated by Hull on Saturday but three of Barton's corners found a team-mate for successful cross points, and he also won tackles, intercepted passes and blocked a shot. Nine points is a decent return and we'll be monitoring his form over the coming weeks to check for consistency.

QPR were ideally set up to take an opening day point but Charlie Austin missed a penalty and the R's went down 1-0 on opening day.

Early in the second half Harry Redknapp's men went down 1-0 to a James Chester goal. The Hull defender provided the R's with a way back in to the match when he conceded a penalty. Austin stepped up but missed his chance on his Premier League debut.
Aug 17 - 6:34 AM

QPR's new signing Steven Caulker made the top of the list of AM's fantasy defensive recommendations for Week 1.

One of the highest scoring defenders in Yahoo's game last season, Caulker is back in the Premier League with QPR after relegation with Cardiff and is priced very reasonably indeed at just £7million, with a home game against Hull.

Queens Park Rangers were defeated at Loftus Road 0-1 by Greek side PAOK in their final match of the preseason.

While there were no goals to increase the appeal of QPR's attacking players, there were some appealing notes to take from the loss. Jordon Mutch was given his first start in the blue and white stripes as he comes off a season where he on a short list of fantasy contributors from Cardiff City. Even more intriguing is Harry Redknapp's decision to start Junior Hoilett up top alongside Charlie Austin. Hoilett was already on the radar after a brace earlier in the preseason in which he played "in the hole". He is a potential out-of-position bargain midfielder that looks to be a regular in QPR's XI.
Aug 9 - 11:22 PM

Harry Redknapp has continued to go against type as he brought in another young player who has never played for him before - things are getting interesting at Loftus Road.

The R's manager has been derided in the media for his recent tendency to buy big veteran names that might not be particularly interested in playing for the club but rather a few final big paychecks. That trend looked like it would continue with the addition of Rio Ferdinand but since then he has signed Steven Caulker, Jordon Mutch and now versatile defender/midfielder Mauricio Isla. It isn't clear how he will be listed in various fantasy games or how he will be deployed since he can play right midfield, right back and center back.

Queens Park Rangers have signed midfielder Mauricio Isla on a one-year loan from Juventus.

Isla is a central midfielder who can play a variety of positions in the middle of the pitch. He excels in passing and setting up teammates but has had trouble with fouling a bit too often. The 26-year-old failed to establish a consistent role at Juventus last season but he has the opportunity to earn a starting spot this year. Unfortunately, his tendency to foul often and lack of goal scoring threat will limit his fantasy appeal.
Aug 6 - 4:01 PM

Junior Hoilett and Charlie Austin each scored twice as QPR beat Shamrock Rovers 4-0 in a pre-season friendly at Tallaght Stadium.

Harry Redknapp fielded an attacking 3-5-2 line-up, with Hoilett operating in the hole behind Austin and Bobby Zamora in attack, which could be how QPR choose to start the season. Austin was the star of last season's promotion push and many people are tipping him to have a big impact in the Premier League as QPR look to avoid dropping straight back down the Championship. He grabbed two goals here, while Hoilett also looked sharp, scoring a brace himself as the London side won comfortably.
