Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams week 49

Bryan O’Rourke

Bryan finished 37th in TFF last season and 7th in 17/18

Overall rank: 6k, transfers remaining 10

A bit of a slip back to 6438 position with 10 transfers left.

At least Abraham, who I should have subbed ages ago, finally scored a goal. Struck down with the equivalent of the yips in golf, a transfer paralysis, not reading the fixtures well and missing some opportunities. 10 transfers left is a shade too many, no doubt a few will have to used on FA Cup final weekend which is a bit wasteful.

Transfers still on hold this weekend, Good luck

Sergio Torija

Sergio finished with an overall rank in the 300’s last season

Overall position 3394 / Points 86 / Transfers left 3

A really good score in the midweek games where all but one of my players had returns, 86 points in total for a provisional week position of 240, which brings me up to an overall position of 3394. It was a more modest return on the weekend games with only Soyuncu, Barnes, Salah and Martial bringing in some points.

Annoyingly, 2 KCs disappeared from my team in the last points update of Thursday (Jesus and Foden)

I used two transfers this week, both coming out good with Barnes going out for Foden (3KCs) and Otamendi to Maguire (clean sheet). The player missing in my team is clearly Fernandes, but I think it will have to wait until a clear entry point from my midfielders in a couple of games time, probably from Salah. Sheffield are looking strong defensively and with 3 of the next 4 at home, they will remain on the team. With only 3 transfers left, I think they need to be kept for possible injuries and the last push on getting players still on the FA cup.

Good luck everyone !

Ben Humphrey

Ben finished with an overall rank of 576 last season

Week points 71 Rank: 4,692 Transfers remaining: 5

Team review.

That felt like an A-Team week, where all my plans came together.
I made two transfers, the first of which was bringing in Mharez for Jimenes, Who is part of a Wolverhampton side that looks like the season is finally starting to catch up with them. Manchester City have good fixtures, plus the FA Cup, so I was always looking to invest there.
I had decided some weeks ago, that I no longer wanted a double up on the Sheffield United defence. So this round of fixtures gave me the perfect opportunity to allow Baldock to play, before I replaced him with Greenwood on Thursday evening.
Both transfers worked out well, and I’m hoping for an all Manchester FA Cup final.
As well as Mr Ings rewarding my faith in him, there were also big scores from Salah and fernandes The machine.

Team thoughts.

I have five transfers left, and all being well, I plan to use most, if not all, on Manchester City and Manchester United players. They both have good fixtures, and I believe will meet in the cup final.
With Salah, Mane and Trent in my current team, they can easily turn into Sterling, Jesus and Martial. Precisely at what point that transformation happens, is yet to be decided.
Whatever happens, I feel I am in a good position to have all the big guns covered in the cup final, as long as the Manchester clubs get there.
Good luck people.

Stephen Troop

Stephen finished with an OR in the 900’s last season

Rank: 1.1k Transfers remaining:

A good gameweek so far, rising to 1.1k in overall rank prior to Thursday night’s games. Salah’s 15 points certainly helped but all my city assets chipped in as well. A Soyuncu to Greenwood was tempting for tonight however I’ll try to hold off the transfers until the FA cup semi final weekend.

Good luck all.
