Fantasy premier league – my imaginary wildcard for GW13


Here’s my fantasy premier league imaginary wildcard team for gameweek 13. Its a team for the future as if I was using my wildcard, not just GW13

fantasy premier league – my imaginary wildcard team for GW13

I’ve dovetailed it in with my “ones to watch” articles so you can see the stats while viewing the team. Obviously when doing a wildcard team you can take a few more chances and in order to make the numbers up you add in players that you may have classified as hold in case you were wondering.
I’ve gone for the 3 best forwards for captain options and as the best returners.  I’m still believing in 4-3-3 so I’ve gone for a solid defence with the only cheapie being Clyne.  Ideally I would have gone for Walker instead of Dawson but didn’t have funds.  With Nastasic injured I went for Zabaleta as the least rotated.

In midfield I was let with the funds for 2 midfielders and 3 cheapies.  I went for Morrison and Barkley as first choice and then kept my punt on Januzaj although the form of emergence of some form from Kagawa is a worry for his gametime

Here’s the full fantasy premier league imaginary wildcard

 

 

Liverpool

Mignolet (£5.7m)

  • Minutes per point:  19.3    Team clean sheets:  4    Team defence ranking:  9  fixture ease rank:  15

Back to normal poor defence after the Fulham clean sheet.  3 potential clean sheets though in Norwich West Ham and Cardiff

Next 6 fixtures:

Terry (£6.4m) 

  • Minutes per point:  18.9 mins .  Team clean sheets:  4    Team defence ranking:  5  Rotation risk: medium   fixture ease ranking: 6  Bonus points to date 10

Finally a Chelsea clean sheet away to West Ham.  The first after conceding in 6 consecutive games.  Interestingly Terry played against Basle last night.  However I cant see him not playing against Southampton.  He has played every minute of the 12 premier league games so far. Every game has clean sheet potential in the next 6 apart from Arsenal away.

Mertesacker (£5.7m) 

  • Minutes per point: 17.0  Team clean sheets:  4    Team defence ranking: 7     Rotation risk: low   fixture ease ranking: 19    Bonus points to date 9

The Arsenal defence with 3 clean sheets in the last 4 are starting to look like the 14 clean sheet team of last year.  They haven’t conceded more than 1 goal since the opening gameweek.  Mertesacker is by far the bonus point darling and has the best goalscoring  potential. There’s 3 games with good clean sheet potential including the next 2

Dawson (£5.4m)

  •   Minutes per point:  21.6  Team clean sheets: 7    Team defence ranking:  1  Rotation risk: medium.   fixture ease ranking: 9     Bonus points to date 6

I don’t think 1 game changes the fact that the Spurs defence has been excellent all season.   Home to Man Utd is not the time to buy though.  My ranking is more about Spurs than Dawson who has probably increased his gametime risk with a poor game.   At least he won’t have to worry about Kaboul taking his place as he was even worse than Dawson.  Chiriches by not playing probably helped his case for taking Dawsons position.  I still believe Spurs is a must have defence and if you don’t like the Dawson risk due to Chiriches then Walker at £6.1m is your safe bet

Next 6 fixtures:

Man Utd (H)
Fulham (A)
Sunderland (A)
Liverpool (H)
Southampton (A)
West Brom (H)

Southampton

Clyne (£4.7m)

  • Minutes per point:  19.4 mins .  Team clean sheets:  6    Team defence ranking:  2  Rotation risk: low   fixture ease ranking: 12   Bonus points to date 4

Clyne is a season long hold for me.  Away to Chelsea though is not the time to invest in the Saints defence.  That’s due to the strength of the defence and the price Clyne is.  I’m normally for CBs due to the bonus situation but unless you’ve got cash to burn for Lovren or Fonte,  Clyne is exceptional value.   Fonte £5.4m) and Lovren (£5.8 injury doubt) have more attacking and bonus potential with Clyne being the budget option but that comes at a points price .  Didn’t disgrace themselves at Arsenal.  A goal from a freak mistake and a dubious penalty(although having Giroud I wasn’t complaining)

Hazard (£9.4m) BUY

  • Goals and assists:  4 goals 5 assists.  Time per point scored:   13.8  mins .  Rotation risk: medium.   fixture ease ranking: 6th.  Consistency 5/12   42%  Last 5 return consistency:  3/5

Took a big step towards dispelling the away day myth with 2 assists at West Ham.  Good all round underlying stats on shooting and creating chances.  On the bench for the Basle game so should start at home to Saints

Man Utd
Remove player i
 
Januzaj (£5.2m) HOLD –    2 goals and 2 assists in 5 games and 2 sub appearances which is pretty good going.  Definite gametime risk but price for a Man Utd midfielder is great value
Arsenal
Remove player i

Ramsey (£7.3m)

  • Goals and assists:  6 goals 4 assists.  Time per point scored:    12.8 mins .  Rotation risk: medium.   fixture ease ranking: 19th.  Consistency 7/12  58%  Last 5 return consistency:  3/5

No returns in last 2 represents a mini crisis for the player of the season to date.  Underlying stats don’t represent the returns so far so all logic says a slowdown should occur.  However you cant apply logic to to Ramsey this season.  Should be an interesting gameweek.  Will Ramsey play in the double pivot and Arteta to the bench or will Wilshere go to the bench after scoring twice in the champs league.  Looks far more dangerous in the double pivot than out wider

Everton

  Barkley (£5.4m) –     Back starting and although didn’t return played well.  Suggested he could continue starting.  Plays as a CAM so great position for value in Everton team
West Ham
Remove player i
 R Morrison (£4.9m) BUY – started the last 8 games which have resulted in 3 goals and an assist.  Good cheapie option
Man Utd

Rooney (£11.1m) 

  • Goals and assists: 6 goals and 7 assists:     Time per point scored:  12.0  mins .  Rotation risk: low.   fixture ease ranking: 14th.  Consistency 9/11   82%  Last 5 return rate:  5/5

Great consistency and form.  Just starting to show underlying stats for shooting to add to the creating chances stats he’s always had.

Aguero (£12.1m)

  • Goals and assists:  10 goals 8 assists.  Time per point scored: 8.4  mins .  Rotation risk: medium.   fixture ease ranking: 17th.  Consistency     8/11  73%   Last 5 return  rate:  4/5

Continuing with his great form against any opposition.  Next fixture home to Swansea promises a continuation of more.  Looks like he has pens as well.  also it was Negredo who dropped into midfield and Aguero who stayed up the pitch in the Spurs game which makes him even more deadly.

Just keeps returning.  Great underlying shoot and creating chances stats to back it up.  Shows he can do it with or without Sturridge.

      • Thanks Michael, Aguero I wish, but am indeed thinking on the lines of tossing out Ozil for a cheapie midfielder (Lallana maybe) and then get Aguero in with Rooney and Suarez. Have Ramsey already in the midfield. This GW though both Arsenal guys need not look over the shoulder for my axe!

  1. Hi, great stuff as always, hope you’re well.
    I have
    Boruc/pantimillon
    Rat/terry/Davies/toure/Williams
    Nasri/coutinho/Ramsey/Morrison/Barkley
    Lukaku/Suarez/aguero(c)
    I have 2 transfers and £1.7m , was thinking rat and pantimillon for mertesacker (your buy) and marshall (fixture paired boruc), but do u think there are more pressing priorities?

    • No reason to transfer out Pantimillon yet.

      Those buying Mert should know that ARS have tough fixtures GW15 – 17: EVE, @MCI, CHE. But moving Rat is a good idea.

      You might want to save one FT.
