fantasy premier league
Weekly score: 60 Overall rank: 38,445
Not the greatest gameweek as I fell foul of captain Sane being rested on Sunday before coming off in the 59th minute last night whilst others captained and even triple captained Sterling or Aguero, well done to anyone who did that whilst Sane owners can probably quite rightly feel a little unlucky by the way the Pep-Roulette wheel landed. Hazard gave me a lovely parting gift with a brace with Wolves players, United players and new signing Wan-Bissaka returning well for me. Liverpool disappointed again although their fixtures still look favourable and they won’t blank throughout the season.
Transfers and captaincy
There is now dual thinking with any transfers in planning for the blanks and double gameweeks whilst continuing to try and score well each week. The immediate concern is getting rid of Chelsea and Everton players who have a blank in GW27 with poor surrounding fixtures whilst looking at players to bring in for that week whilst also having an eye on potential GW31 blanks which will become clearer next weekend following the FA Cup fifth round.
Quite an easy transfer this week with Hazard making way for Son. I still feel I am a little behind the curve with many owning Aubameyang who has a plum next three fixtures although Arsenal have been struggling a little of late.
I will captain Salah at home to Bournemouth.

A good week or two with fixture navigation playing a key role in a good rise in the top few 100. The extra City v Everton game landed nicely for me with 5 players playing in that game now allowing to have a rethink after the FA Cup for the final stretch of the season. I have used more transfers than I wanted but am set up well for the next few weeks with most players still in the FA Cup whilst covering Liverpool. Richarlison to Jota and Higuain to Jiminez are moves I am considering for Monday night with Wolves having a great run of games into March and it also frees up funds to set up my next move.
Sky Sports fantasy football
Weekly score: 87 Overall rank: 86 Transfers left: 11
An average week overall with the Hazard cap and Luiz haul on Saturday really bumping me up whilst the Aguero hat trick undid that again on Sunday where I captained Pogba. Jimenez continues to provide great value and will certainly be in my team post-overhaul as we head into that next week.
Transfers and captaincy
No transfers planned this week with the caps covered by Salah, Sterling/Sane/Laporte and Jiminez/Doherty. My dilemma during overhaul planning will be either to attack the rankings by picking low ownership players, playing it safe and protecting rank by going for high ownership players or more likely a mixture of both. 11 transfers left is reasonable and should allow for a few rogue picks to try and maximise points-scoring.
Sun Dream Team (Team 1)
Weekly score: 87 Overall rank: 100,947 Transfers left: 2/month
Another good week and more ground made up as I come back around the top 100k mark. Aguero’s hatty was the main reason for this with Hazard and Luiz also picking up hauls. With Europe back on the horizon I am well set with City and Chelsea in particular having lots of games in February alongside Arsenal and United.
Arsenal have a lot of games in February and I expect more in March as they progress through the Europe league. As I don’t have any Arsenal players I am considering bringing in Aubameyang potentially for Rashford who has a tough CL draw against PSG and will likely be rotated with Lukaku. To enable this I will likely do Richarlison to Jota who looks a steal at 1.5m, has great fixtures and FA Cup action.
Sun Dream Team (Team 2)
Weekly score: 103 Overall rank: 5,560 Transfers left: 2/month
Similar story to above although I have jumped well back into the top 10k.
Same commentary as above in the main although I can’t afford Aubameyang so will probably go for Lacazette who is probably more likely to start the Europa games.
I will confirm all my transfers on Twitter (My Twitter handle is Fergi222, give me a follow!) by the respective deadlines so keep an eye out
Good luck everyone for GW26!
