Weekly score 61 Overall rank: 19,593
A green arrow following 5 straight red ones is very pleasing even though I (again) made the wrong captain choice. Alonso was the only defender who scored anything for me whilst Son, Rashford and Kane thankfully did the business to give me a respectable gameweek. I went to the Cardiff-Spurs game; Kane should have scored 2 or 3 so good signs there.
Transfers and captaincy
I have been toying with playing my wildcard to set my team up around Salah who my team is desperately missing. I’m not sure if this is kneejerky although my team on paper (without Salah) for GW22 actually looks pretty good. I would have to sell either Kane, who I want long term, or Hazard, who has a home fixture to Newcastle to fund Salah and include a hit or two which I want to avoid so in the end I may end up doing nothing and hoping Salah has a quiet one away to Brighton which I am not that confident of.
The pressers will dictate my course of action; is Kane or Hazard look like missing out for whatever reason then I will probably make the move with a hit, if not then I may roll and look to do Hazard to Salah next week using my then 2 FTs or maybe with 1 hit for a re-shuffle. Nothing is certain yet although I am erring away from using my wildcard for this week at least due to the good fixtures the majority of my team has. I don’t have any City players which is concerning as hopefully they are now back and will begin scoring well again. Rotation could loom for City with their dual cup exploits which is a concern. If I keep the current team which is likely I will either captain Hazard or Kane.

Not a great weekend with FA Cup rotation rife and disappointing lots of us. I used one transfer bringing Sterling back in for Hazard and was rewarded with a 9-pointer, not too bad though I hoped for more against Rotherham. I nearly brought in Son on Friday night and would have had he not been leaving for the Asia games next week. My team is in good shape still albeit a drop in overall rank. I will probably leave it for a week or so now as the fixtures are good for most of my players with the only moves in mind being Laporte to Alexander-Arnold and bringing Hazard back in which I will try to maximise with an extra game at some point.
Sky Sports fantasy football
Weekly score: 120 Overall rank: 112 Transfers left: 16
A pretty poor midweek set of scores with only Luiz scoring well but it was the same across the board as I only suffered a slight drop in rank. Hazard and Pogba cap on Wednesday night let everyone down with a 2-pointer each so not much to report.
Transfers and captaincy
My captains this weekend will be Salah (at Brighton), then a risky Richarlison ( v Bournemouth) then Laporte (v Wolves) although I may cave and look to bring in Sterling/Sane as we get to see the line ups. I will likely look to ship Maddison after Leicester’s game on the weekend as his fixtures turn nasty until the overhaul so will need to think about how I approach getting in Kane/Eriksen for the following weekend for Spurs’ great run of games. I am thinking of Maddison to Patterson which will free up around 2 million.
Sun Dream Team (Team 1)
Weekly score: 48 Overall rank: 141,467 Transfers left: 3/month
Finally a decent week or so in Dreamteam! David Luiz, Kane, Sane and Hazard were the only real scorers this week but it was enough to see me rise around 75,000 places in the last 10 days which is very pleasing as this team has been really struggling. The double Arsenal attack didn’t pay off as well as hoped but at least now I have my January transfers to try and keep rising.
My initial thought is that Rashford at 2.8m is a bargain it doesn’t look like I can afford to miss out on Salah any more even though they are out of the FA Cup. I can do a straight Aubameyang and Lacazette to Salah and Rashford which will leave me 1.7m free and I am tempted to use that cash to upgrade Laporte to Pogba and switch to 3-4-3. City do have a couple of extra fixtures in January though over Liverpool thanks to the FA Cup and Carabao Cup so I am tempted to potentially leave Salah until February and go with Aguero which will allow me to upgrade Laporte to Sterling to give me a heavy City attack throughout January.
Sun Dream Team (Team 2)
Weekly score: 49 Overall rank: 11,258 Transfers left: 3/month
A small rank increased based on Liverpool struggling with Jimenez again proving good value for a cheap price tag. I feel the team is in good shape for January.
I am looking at a similar City strategy as above although Jiminez is proving great value at just 3m so I may leave him instead of getting Rashford. Anderson wasn’t a great transfer in in hindsight and I may take him out for Sane or as part of an Aguero switch.
I will confirm all my transfers on Twitter by the respective deadlines so keep an eye out (My Twitter handle is Fergi222, give me a follow!)
Good luck everyone for GW22!
