Well after much cogitating in the car and watching TV I’ve finally made my fantasy premier league transfer. Here’s my team for fantasy premier league gameweek 13
Fantasy premier league – FFgeek team for GW13 – transfer made
The transfer made was Ben Turner of Cardiff out and Jon Flanagan of Liverpool in. A bit of a gamble for me as I am a relatively conservative fantasy premier league manager. I like spreading my risk defensively as a fantasy premier league manager and try to avoid double ups. I’m also not wild on players with gametime risk. Flanagan breaks both those rules. However there was a rationale. After Arsenal have played Hull I want to transfer in Rooney for Uniteds home game to Newcastle. Doing that prevents me from spending on Everton, Man City and Arsenal defensive assets which would be long term holds. This is due to money restrictions unless I sell Ivanovic. Having suffered through no returns for goodness knows how long I’m going to hold Ivanovic until after Palace in GW16. Before that there is Southampton H, Sunderland A and Stoke A all potential clean sheets. Given that conundrum I started looking for a replacement for Ben Turner who is basically unplayable given the Cardiff defence. No long term solution popped up with out short term fixture sacrifice. However Flanagan is available at £4.5m giving me enough money for Rooney in GW15 so long as I keep an eye on prices. Liverpools next 3 games are Hull A, Norwich H and West Ham H. All 3 are among the worst attacking sides in the division and potential clean sheets. The temptation was too much. Flanagan played against Everton and was excellent. He also got alot of raise from Rodgers so I’ve gambled that he will hold his place. Jose Enrique is out until February. Cissokho and Sakho both can play LB but haven’t really impressed at the position. It is a gamble but I could never play Turner anyway and I didn’t have the funds to do much else so I’ve rolled the dice.
Here’s the full team. Aguero’s captain. I’ve gone for Giroud as vice. he reason being that there’s story that Suarez suffered an ankle injury but is expected to play. I wanted to avoid the outside possibility that Aguero is rested for the midweek fantasy premier league GW14 games and that Suarez is more injured than the story says giving me no captain.
