Telegraph fantasy football tips – FFGeek contributors show their teams GW26
Bryan Forbes O’Rourke
Bryan finished an incredible 7th place overall in telegraph fantasy football last season
30 gameweek points, total points 1,404, Overall rank 1,640 transfers available 16
30 points scored over the course of the week so far and a drop in ranking to 1640 place.
Well, not bringing in Aguero certainly hurt ! Not having Laporte rubbed salt in the wounds. However I predict that Jesus will start the cup game versus the mighty Newport in a fortnight and five goals and assist from the Brazilian forward will surely make things better again.
Bringing in Doherty was a good move with his brace on Tuesday night. Transfers have been made early this week with Alonso and Richarlison out for Otto and Pogba. Pogba looks like a world class player again all of a sudden. With Alonso having some tricky fixtures and Otto bringing an attacking threat, the Portugese comes in to free funds for Pogba and a future Jesus sub to Aguero or even Kane.
16 transfers left which is a good number with just over a third of the season left. Good luck :)
Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football
23 Gameweek points Total Pts 1,432 Overall rank 794 Transfers available 13
Another good week to keep climbing the rank inside the top 1000. Saturday was great with all Chelsea and Wolves players providing points. However I missed on Aguero hat-trick, though 2 came from Sterling KCs to soften the blow. The Arsenal pair and Anderson were also in the points on the weekend. With the midweek games also providing extra points, particularly pleasing the Doherty 2 goals and KC in the cup game.
I’ve been living dangerously without Salah for the last couple of weeks, and I will at least wait until after the FA cup games next weekend to bring him back. I haven’t got any definitive transfer decided this week, but with the two set of games after being the FA cup and a blank gameweek, there will be many opportunities for extra games. Alonso will most certainly leave my team, the question is when, while there is the option to remove Arsenal players for Wolves for 3 extra games before Arsenal play next, which given Wolves form, it is quite appealing.
Good luck this week Geekers
Ben is a top 1k finisher in TFF
Overall rank: 1,884 Transfers remaining: 20
That was a good week, mainly thanks to Aguero and Sterling having fun against Arsenal. I also owe a massive thank you to the bargain defender of the season, Master Doherty. He has collected a fantasy sack full of points over the last two weeks, even coming up trumps in the FA cup.
Another special mention should go to Mr Hazard. After trying my patients as only Hazard can, I was finally rewarded for keeping the faith. I know many managers are thinking of dumping him now with Man City and Tottenham on the horizon, not to mention an FA cup clash with Man United, but I’m inclined to stick. This is in no small part down to the introduction of Higuain. Hazard clearly didn’t enjoy his stint as centre forward, and truly only comes to life when he’s on the left with a proper striker to work with.
Liverpool have wobbled of late, and with that wobble came two Salah blanks. This isn’t a big deal when you consider the ownership of the Egyptian. If he blanks for you, he blanks for pretty much everyone else.
What time is it? It’s Wolves time.
After yo-yoing in and out of the top 2000 for the last few months, I think it’s time to try something a bit different to facilitate an assault on the top 1000. I’ve been foretelling the beautiful run of fixtures awaiting Wolves, and it seems they are hitting some form just at the right time to make the most of them. I already have Doherty in place, but I am planning to bring in not one, but two more of the men in old gold. I will be removing Trent A A for Jimenez £3.7m, and swopping Anderson for Jota £3.2m. I previously couldn’t decide which to bring in, but I am happy to make the double change. This way I can keep all my big midfielders whilst feeling that I am making an upgrade, for the next month at least.
And here’s the cherry on the top. Wolves don’t play until Monday, so I can give Anderson and Trent, (if he’s fit), their games before making the change. I’m hoping this will result in some handy bonus points which could push me up that slippery slope which is the league table.
Good luck boys and girls.
