Here’s our regular article where we pretend we have a wildcard to use. The aim is to give more longevity to player picks than just the next gameweek
fantasy premier league GW17 wildcard tips – our imaginary wildcard
The short gameweek means no time for stats this week so I’ll just roll out the team with a bit of commentary
First of all here it is:
The team is affordable at around £103m
I’ve started with the 2 cheapest GKs for save points rather than clean sheets.
The 2 best defences are Spurs and Chelsea. They both have good attacking assets which really came to the fore with Spurs trying 3-4-3 as well which pushed their full backs much higher up the pitch. There’s also 2 good bargains in Jones and Gabriel who’s in for the injured Mustafi. Amat is the benchwarming makeweight
In midfield De Roon remains the cheapest playing midfielder. Sanchez is pretty much a must on form. Eriksen is also the man in form with Burnley next. Sigurdsson and Lallana are good value mid priced assets. Lallana has taken on the Liverpool mantel with Mane going to ACON in the coming weeks and Firmino suffering a loss of form.
Upfront Kane and Costa are obvious picks with Carroll facing Hull next as the cheapie although he does face some gametime risk with the early turnaround of games
Here’s how the bookies would see the team:
