Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 4 seasons overall ranks are 17k, 36k, 17k and 21k.
GW16 points: 48 -4 (FPL average 37) Total points 954, Overall Rank: 276k, red arrow 17k Team Value: £102.3m
Here’s the points:
So a 17k red arrow to 276k overall rank. Nothing like taking a 4 point deduction for 3 transfers and then finding that none of them end up playing.
BGW18 and DGW19
Here’s how the team looks at the moment for BGW18:
So 8 players, subject to Taylor’s fitness. GW18 is Jan 12 so I guess it’s no a totally hopeless possibility. I would have 2 transfers if I carry over my free transfer. Thta’s unless I lose it by choosing to free hit.
So 11 players playing twice in DGW19 and Son and Kane playing Sheffield United.
1 free transfer and £0.2m in the bank.
I could have done a straight transfer to Lowton but the risk of the game v Fulham not going ahead made it a potential pointless transfer
So I’m going to carry over a free transfer and take the risk of deciding that I do free hit and having to burn it. My DGW19 position is ok and although the lineup for GW17 is pretty atrocious I think I’ll just leave the transfer so I can have the option of not free hitting GW18.
I’ve put Taylor in the lineup just in case he is miracously fit. With Brewster playing the last 2 and that only being a few days away I can seriously imagine he will be part of the Wilder random striker selection policy so I’ve put him last.
That only leaves a bench decision between Dallas and Walker Peters and I’ve gone for the bookies odds favouring Liverpool very slightly for a clean sheet
The FFGeek captain poll has Fernandes mildly ahead with Kane close behind. The other main advice site pool is similar but with a slightly wider gap. I’ve gone for Kane as they are playing the worst defence and hopefully Leeds from foot style will suit Spur’s counter attack. Son’s lack of shot volume and Kanes penalty duties mean I have favoured Kane
