Week 30 Analysis

Here is a review of week 30 for my teams and plans going forward. Apologies for missing a couple of weeks.

TFF – weekly points 49 ,overall rank 4,671 (as of Thur)

Since my last review, I have been treading water with my overall rank, which is expected, as most of my players are highly owned by active players. My transfers are a little lower than I’d ideally like but with only 8 premier league games left for most teams it’s not a disaster.

The transfers I have used have been good. Richarlison made way for Jimenez who had extra games, was on form, had good fixtures and was still in the FA cup. He has scored well since I brought him in. I also brought in Hazard last week for Trippier for the extra games and that Trippier is just not nailed to play.

I am happy with my team with the exception of Anderson. He hasn’t had a shot on target in the last 6 games at least and only 1 shot in total as a result of playing much deeper. He is unfortunately at a price point where there is nobody else I really want though despite some tempting differentials.

Fraser is an option with Bournemouth’s good fixtures and the return of Wilson likely helping Fraser’s points potential. Barnes (Harvey) is also an option after posting some excellent underlying attacking numbers over the last month or so. At this stage of the season though, I generally use transfers for  extra games when the doubles emerge which neither of these have. Doherty is also an option but I’ll likely just leave it at least for this week.

I have had a rough few weeks in FPL dropping around 40k places. My blank/double strategy has also changed. My original plan was switching Aubameyang back to Aguero after the league cup final, playing my wildcard in GW29/30 to set up for the double gameweeks and then to free hit in 31. Whilst this would pose a GW33 challenge I’d have to encorporate into the wildcard it would have meant a likely juice triple captain opportunity for a city asset in DGW32.

The plan changed when I brought in Vardy for Rashford who was injured. This transfer has worked out well but with price changes it meant I couldn’t swap Aubameyang back to Aguero who subsequently scored a hat trick. It was then easier to adopt the strategy of building a team with GW31 in mind and to free hit in GW32. I saved a transfer last week and so the plan for the upcoming blank gameweek is to bring in Mane for Pogba, Wilson for Aubameyang and Fraser for Billing for a -4. This should set me up well for GW33 as well, although I will lose value on Pogba.

Sun Dream Team

weekly points 72, overall rank 114,838

Since the last update I have fallen in rank by a long way.

I have been massively punished not owning Aguero and Pogba, which had I been on the ball were obvious transfers. I have used my 3 March transfers already to correct those mistakes, replacing Aubameyang and Eriksen.  I also brought in Luiz for the injured Laporte.
