Sitting at 170k with 8 GWks to go is far from ideal! but the last 2 weeks perfectly sum up my season.
Gw29 I took hit to get Auba and Bale
gw30 hits to get Havertz Alonso and Richarlison
All the above either blanked or got benched!
Wildcard overall thoughts
I am wildcarding this week and hoping for the best. I am not a template and play it safe manager nor will I ever be as I like to enjoy the game and act according to what I think is right and not what the template thinks is right. This way of thinking has got me 4 of the last 5 season in the top 0.5%.
So my current WC draft does not include players such as Raphinha (due to fixtures) and Lingard (due to fixtures and the Antonio injury). I am basically playing the fixtures in this wildcard as i believe form comes with fixtures.
I couldn’t find a decent 4.5ish option so according with fixtures I am leaving Martinez and going with Leno. Button the cheapie second as he’s £3.9m.
Alexander Arnold is a must have. I also believe the Leicester defense is worth it with these fixtures so Castagne who has an attacking threat as well is in. I am doubling with Fofana and adding Coady due to fixtures as well. Any of the two though could be flipped to Lindelof.
Salah and Bruno Fernandes need no explanation. Neto has great fixtures and he is class. Jota is the in form player. Emile Smith Rowe is the cheapie.
Kane 1000%. Vardy has the fixtures and hasn’t scored for ages so his time is coming. Davis the cheapie
Please let me know what you think
