Wow, finally a decent gameweek, well worth the wait! I took a punt a bit on Sterling and it paid off handsomely along with Rondon and Maddison also returning for a massive overnight green arrow overnight, more than halving my rank from 84k to 41k. On Sunday morning I was concerned about no United players and the Salah captainers but there was no real harm done and with Hazard and Jiminez also returning it ended a great gameweek for me setting me nicely to hopefully invade the top 20k over the next few weeks with 11 players for GW31 and all my chips still to play.
I have already switched Jiminez to Wilson as I had the exact money. This gives me a decision to make on who to bench and it’s currently like Pereira as I can’t see Leicester keeping a clean sheet away to Burnley. I will likely captain Salah against Fulham, he has been unlucky recently but has been playing well and he is due. I am nicely set for GW33 also as I will be free-hitting in GW32.

A decent week with Sterling, Mane and Jiminez doing well and helping me climb a little in the rankings. The FA Cup results next weekend will sort out the short term rearranged games so I will evaluate these before making any transfers with Hazard coming in a possibility for the late Sunday game. Nothing else really planned before the international break.

I transferred out Pogba for Sterling as captain on Saturday (with the next couple of City games in mind also) and this proved to be a real game changer this weekend as, along with Maddison and Almiron returning, I found myself in the top 20 overall for the first time ever. Van Dijk captain didn’t go quite as planned on Sunday but with Salah keeping quiet again and Hazard and Jiminez returning well I maintained rank and go into next week in nosebleed territory and with eight players playing which is pretty decent.
I only have five transfers left but am reasonably happy for next week although no Salah has the potential to hurt with Mane also playing well; I will assess
the FA Cup results on Saturday and this could help make a decision on whether to bring one in or not for the Sunday with Anderson to Mane a
seeming no brainer. This does leave tied for not being able to afford a one transfer move to Aguero or Salah in the future but Mane as a differential
could see me rise through the ranks further whilst the highly owned Salah or Aguero probably won’t. Exciting times whatever happens.
Sun Dream Team 1
Weekly Score: 60 Overall Rank: 82,290
Hazard, Mane and Sterling returned handsomely this weekend to give me a good rank boost and with up to ten players playing midweek I am hoping for more to
move towards the top 50k.I am hoping Jesus makes an appearance or two particularly at Swansea on the weekend.
No transfers left for March
Sun Dream Team 2
Weekly Score: 41 Overall Rank: 2,636
Hazard and Sterling were my only scorers this weekend but again I have ten players potentially playing midweek so the chance to make up further ground.
No transfers left for March
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 GW31!
