fantasy premier league teams GW33 – some early thoughts on the FFGeek team
GW32 points: 97 on Free Hit (average 73) Total points 1,852, Gameweek rank 462k, Overall Rank: 164k, green arrow 44k, Team Value: £101.8m
So after 4 consecutive red arrows and 3 decent sized red arrows within those 4, a green arrow at last. 44k green arrow to 164k OR
For free hitters the gameweek was decided by players on the fringe of the template in Azpilicueta, Jimenez and Laporte. I only had 1 but Ederson, Luiz and Tomkins got me a decent score.
I was watching the Man City v Cardiff (was it a training game btw. It comes to something when a near reserve team can so comprehensively outplay another PL team fighting for their lives but that’s another story). Anyway as I was watching that game I was just waiting for confirmation that Brighton had scored. Thankfully it never came. I don’t think this season I’ve had 2 defenders from the same team before but it isn’t half a stressful process.
Hazard, the Man City defence and the Chelsea defence turned up and Huddersfield again showed how as opposition they are a clean sheet magnet.
1 transfer and £0.9m in the bank.
I will be wildcarding in GW34, bench boosting in GW35 and maybe triple captaining for the Liverpool home game to Huddersfield in GW36.
I have a full quota for the blank GW33 and then some. The fact that I’m wildcarding means that I have a 1 game transfer where I only need to consider this week and nothing more. Therefore I won’t be doing a team planner schedule.
Given it’s a one off transfer anyone playing Huddersfield is an obvious target. I already have Vardy and the likely candidates after that are Maddison or Barnes in attack. That’s unless I go for double defence.
The issue with getting a midfielder in though is that I would have to get rid of Richarlison who I don’t really want to. After an horrendous spell of form he’s finally come right with 2 goals in his last 3 backed up by excellent underlying stats.
My alternatives to Richarlison out are two fold:
Having survived the double Chelsea defence experiment I could go double Leicester vs Huddersfield and put in Pereira instead of Ben Mee.
The other option is to put in Callum Wilson vs Burnley for Rashford. Both those transfers would mean I don’t need to field Wan Bissaka at Newcastle who I’m not sure is a great clean sheet prospect.
My most likely option is Wilson in for Rashford but I’ll confirm tomorrow.
A tricky one this week that’s for sure. At the moment I can’t split myself between Salah, Mane, Hazard and Vardy. How helpful a start is that? I don’t fancy doing a 4 way article tomorrow. The FFGeek Polls will play a part if there’s any pattern if not it will be totally on the analysis. Unfortunately it seems no matter how much you do there’s no clear answer.
At the moment it’s on Salah despite his pretty indifferent form, to say the least, but it is only a placeholder.
The one advantage of a blank week is that your lineup isn’t an issue and that is the case this week.
Assuming the transfer is Rashford to Wilson then Wan Bissaka will be first in line followed by Mee and then Hojbjerg
Here’s the team. Pretend Rashford is Wilson
GW33 is a Friday Night UK time gameweek
Remember it’s a Friday UK time gameweek. The clocks went forward an hour in the UK last week so make sure you don’t get caught out. Although I imagine everyone has a smart phone which automatically adjusts do double check. Also, set your team up provisionally now, as depending on where you live, if you get dragged to the pub tomorrow and forget or over sleep through your alarm, you have some semblance of a team.
Hope you had a good gameweek.
