Fantasy premier league
Weekly Score: 47 (-4) Overall Rank: 53,598
A slightly below-average week with Doherty and Laporte providing the highlights with 12 points-a-piece. Jota was incredibly unlucky not to get anything but other than that it was pretty standard across the board. Son’s sending off had no real impact with a massive effective ownership in the top 100k.
I will be moving Son on for the final gameweek probably for Pogba although I can afford Mane or anyone else up to 10.3m. I have a decent team to put out so I won’t take any hits. Robertson’s injury isn’t great but I still have a decent eleven without him if he doesn’t play.
If I bring in Pogba I will likely captain him as a risky but potentially fruitful punt. He was unlucky on the weekend and should do well against a poor Cardiff. I’m not keen on the City attacking assets as I can see them pulling back and playing keep-ball after (if) they score to secure the win.

A seemingly decent week but a rank drop following the Man City clean sheet which considering I have both Laporte and Ederson, means lots of teams have gone gung-ho with City defenders. Jota was incredibly unlucky not to get a couple of goals on the weekend which would have been a real rank-boost but it wasn’t to be. If I can hang on now to a top 100 spot I will be really pleased with me winning all my mini-leagues and taking some good learnings into next season.

Weekly Score: 55 Overall Rank: 56 Transfers: 0
I got away with no captain on Friday but had a poor Saturday, Doherty aside. My week was rescued by cap Hazard and Luiz on Sunday as I managed to reasonably maintain rank. Sterling cap blanked on Monday.
With Son and Robertson likely out on the weekend I am down to nine players with captaincy the only decision left this season. I will likely captain Sterling as none of the others really appeal. I am hoping to hang on to a top 60 finish now, fingers crossed.
Sun Dream Team
Weekly Score: 75 Overall Rank: 40,406
The Man City clean sheet hurt my rank again before the European adventures took hold meaning my plans to shift Liverpool players suddenly don’t look too appealing! With Chelsea and Arsenal also going through to the Europa final I am a little unsure on how to proceed with my transfers as we aren’t sure about rotation on the final league day. Son is the obvious transfer out and he could go for Moura for the extra game and a good saving to then use for the remaining cup final games.
Sun Dream Team
Weekly Score: 66 Overall Rank: 3,117
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.
I will do some post-mortem articles over the next few weeks for the four formats and can hopefully take some learnings into next season.
Good luck everyone for GW38!
