 fantasy World Cup team – FFGeek team updates Friday 22 June

Here’s the games being played today:

Days and times in UK time:

1:00 PM Friday, June 22 Brazil vs Costa Rica
4:00 PM Friday, June 22 Nigeria vs Iceland
7:00 PM Friday, June 22 Serbia vs Switzerland

McDonalds

Total points 69.  Overall rank 280k no Wildcard or Chips used

So things going pretty badly.

Todays changes

You need to make captain changes and substitutions before the first game kicks off at 1pm

I’m sticking with Suarez as my captain

Just the Brazilians Miranda and Jesus playing today.  Plus the 2 Nigerian substitutes mentioned below.

2 substitutions today.  GK Caballero out and GK Uzoho in.  Trezeguet out and Onazi in.  Onazi didn’t start in the last round but I’m hoping I can substitute a substitute in the next match day although Honda didn’t start either but I’m only risking 1 point with Trezeguet

Make sure you do your captain change and substitutions in the ROUND 2 tab not the Round 3 tab which is easy to get wrong

If you’re looking for stats on potential players for today here are my key articles.  Remember though they were done prior to the tournament so you need to see at the very least that they played in Round 1 before you pick anyone

Here’s the team for today:

Sun Dream Team

Total points 102 Overall Rank 90k  transfers used 5 out of 20

Firstly here’s a link to my timeline article so you can see the order of teams playing in the Group stages.  That may effect your transfer decisions

In retrospect you can transfer a player for a game after the first 1 in a match day as long as the player out’s team hasn’t played on the matchday and the player in’s team hasn’t played on the match day.  Here’s the rules which I think I interpreted incorrectly at first.    The Sun Live chat have verified it as did some other managers who have used it so it seems safe

 An eligible transfer will take immediate effect and will occur if you transfer a Player out for another Player where neither the outgoing Player’s Country nor the incoming Player’s Country have played during that Match Day.

Transfers

Probably just Messi out for Neymar today assuming Neymar starts. Seems like Danilo is also injured so he will become another Brazil defender.  I’m going to wait until the lineups are out.   I’m also thinking of Sterling out for Coutinho due to the leaked training lineup but I don’t think I will take him out.  Even off the subs bench Sterling could score against Panama.

I will at least tweet any transfers probably around 12pm UK time

Here’s the team as of today with yesterdays points.

Telegraph fantasy football

The standard team:  Total points 114 Overall Rank 23.4k  transfers used 9 out of 26 in Group stage

The Def Block team:  Total points 168 Overall Rank 2.1k  transfers used 22 out of 26 in Group stage

As I said above,  here’s a link to my timeline article so you can see the order of teams playing in the Group stages.  That may effect your transfer decisions

In the telegraph you definitely can make transfers between matches.

the standard team

2 transfers today.  Neymar for Griezmann and Marcelo for Luis Hernandez

Here’s the team as it stands.   I will at least tweet transfers probably around 12pm UK time

the defensive block team

With only 4 transfers left the block has peaked and it’s all down hill from here.  Spains last game is against Morocco so it’s still a good clean sheet prospect. They will need to play their full team with them and Portugal on the same points.

With Di Maria being left out last night he has to go.  I have the exact money for Coutinho so he will be the transfer.

Here’s the team as it stands. I will at least tweet transfers probably around 12pm UK time

  1. On the sun dream team you can’t sub a sub back on, took Hegazy out after his 1 pointer last week and couldn’t bring him back on our cover a non-starter. I’m guessing auto subs would work the same.
