GW37 fantasy football tips – Andrew Ferguson reviews his GW36 teams in FPL, TFF, Sky and Sun plus outlines his plans for GW37
Fantasy premier league
Weekly Score: 106 inc Bench Boost Overall Rank: 49,392
A good week although the bench boost didn’t give a great return, a bit of a waste particularly following all the thought and effort that has gone into the last few weeks; still, a good rank booster. Salah thankfully hauled along with Robertson whilst Jiminez delivered a week too late following my triple cap effort last week! Jota has been a great purchase and Ward-Prowse also returned with a goal so the wildcard hasn’t all been in vain.
Going into next week I have a pretty decent team although I am concerned with potential Spurs rotation with the Champions League in mind. I can’t see Liverpool rotating as they are chasing the league title so I am not concerned there. With this in mind I am tempted to move Trippier on potentially for Shaw and am also then tempted to take a hit to bring in Mane, Bernardo, Hazard or even Pogba for Eriksen.
I will likely captain Aguero at home to Leicester with Salah vice.
Telegraph fantasy football
Weekly Score: 129 Overall Rank: 55 Transfers: 0
What a week, it really couldn’t have gone any better. The only downside was the hokey-cokey between Sterling and Son wasting my final two transfers but the logic was there and Son had around 10 shots over the two games so I can count myself a little unlucky not have scored more points there. Son and Sterling aside (!) my whole team delivered including the low-owned Jota which catapulted me into the 55th place, my highest ever rank. I am hopeful of climbing a little more particularly as my Wolves assets have a plum fixture at home to Fulham on the weekend, although after that I probably don’t have as much City coverage as others for the FA Cup final so a drop could be expected there. Either way I am incredibly pleased with how the week, and season, has gone with a top 50 finish a real possibility now.
Sky Sports fantasy football
Weekly Score: 82 Overall Rank: 50 Transfers: 0
A below-par week with Salah and Aguero kicking me down the rankings and I am holding on now for dear life. My Robertson cap on Friday night saved my gameweek with bits and bobs elsewhere but not much to get excited about. If I can stay in the top 100 I will be very pleased but there are some big lessons for next season around transfer usage for the end of the season.
Thankfully I planned reasonably well so can still cover most captaincies until the end of the season bar Friday – Everton and Burnley. The way Everton are playing, Sigurdsson in particular could be a great low-owned pick with Richarlison also playing well. On Saturday I will captain Jiminez, Hazard on Sunday and Sterling on Monday night.
Sun Dream Team 1
Weekly Score: 88 Overall Rank: 34,162
A good gameweek with my differential Jota bumping me up the rankings into the reaches of the top 30k, a place I haven’t seen since September. The Liverpool players returned well along with Aguero so a decent week all in all.
With the final set of transfers available on Friday, the Champions League results this week will help with decisions for the final push. After Newcastle, Liverpool will have Barcelona, Wolves and potentially a CL final against Spurs or Ajax so nothing easy there so a move to City players will be likely as they play Brighton then Watford in the FA Cup final.
Chelsea and Arsenal have difficult Europa games and aren’t playing well so I’m not really interested in them. I will likely leave the transfers until next Friday to be sure of the final games to be played out then make the moves which will likely include bringing in Laporte, Bernardo and maybe Walker/Sane.
Sun Dream Team 2
Weekly Score: 91 Overall Rank: 1,797
Same as above with very similar teams.
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 GW37!
