fantasy football tips GW24 – Stephen Troop reviews progress and previews GW24 for his FPL, TFF and Sun teams
Here is a review of week 23 for my teams and plans going forward
Telegraph fantasy football
Stephen finished last season at around 1k overall rank
weekly points 39, overall rank 9,495
Another pretty poor week. A Salah haul, Sterling goal and Robertson assist was all there was to cheer. A second Coady own goal in 2 weeks really didn’t help and Richarlison and Anderson have been underperforming for a few weeks now. I made 2 transfers. Lukaku went for Aubameyang and Salah went for Aguero given City have a 3-0 over Liverpool. This will probably only be a 2-0 depending on how Pep lines up for the FA Cup. Sane was perhaps a better option but I’d expect his to get a rest for the FA cup with a league cup semi final, a potential Mendy return and the fact he is possibly more due a rest than other players.
The majority of my team have fixtures in the FA cup so will be keeping them but will be tempted by Rashford or Pogba as longer term picks if they start on Friday in their FA cup game against Arsenal. Hazard would be the one to make way in that case but with the possibility of a double gameweek for Chelsea soon, I may leave transfers completely this weekend.
Fantasy Premier League
Stephen finished with an OR of 52k last season
weekly points 66, overall rank 230,411
A reasonable scoring gameweek but the score mainly came from highly owned template players and the fact that many people needed to take hits last week. Not owning Sane again hurt me, particularly since he has scored very well since I got rid a couple of weeks ago. I made 2 transfers of Kane > Aubameyang and TAA>Robertson which I’m hoping to see more benefit from.
Richarlison and Anderson have been frustrating but I don’t have the funds to do much with them. I am tempted to transfer Alonso for Kolasinac this week. Kolasinac has good fixtures and his heatmaps shows good assist, and even goal promise so at £4.9 could be a steal. However I still wouldn’t have enough to upgrade either of the problem players to someone I want so likelihood is I hold this week with the view of potentially taking advantage of early double gameweeks If they appear in the next couple.
Sun Dream Team
weekly points 60, overall rank 52,568
A better week where I rose around 24k places which reversed last weeks disaster. I did however use my monthly transfers. Kane went for Rashford, Hart went for Alisson (though Ederson was a better pick in hindsight) then D Silva went for Sterling. Rashford repaid instantly, as did Sterling and I’m reasonably happy with the shape of the team so long as no injuries creep up before February
