Sergio Torija

Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football

92 Gameweek points, Total Pts 1,625, Overall rank 1,608 Transfers available 11

Ended on 92 points for the double week, which probably was average around the top, no significant movement in my rank. The weekend games provided clean sheets again for City and Liverpool, but there was no attacking feast for any of them. Luckily I kept the Wolves attacking double until Saturday, so Jota departed the team on a high with a double return. Bringing Hazard in his place, which is actually bad planning of me, since I removed him not long ago for few extra games, so perhaps I should have kept.

With transfers at the minimum, I won’t do anything this week and will look with more calm at possible moves till the end of the season during the international break after this week.

Good luck this week Geekers!

Team review.

I made two transfers over the weekend. One was planned and one was not. After my Kepa keeper returned, then failed to shut out Fulham, I pressed the button and swapped him for Alisson, who did shut out Everton. The second change was a combination of gut feeling and the fear of missing a big score against Fulham. I Brought Hazard back in for Rashford. He only managed an assist against The Cottagers, but I shall hope for a bit more in the coming weeks. I’m suddenly not sure about Rashford. I get the feeling he’s a bit intimidated by the suddenly in form Lukaku. It would also be very easy now to see Rashford pushed out wide again since the big Belgium remembered how to score.

Robertson has been brilliant as always, bringing in 19 points over the week, while Shaw contributed 11 of his own.

Salah, Pogba and Sterling were all disappointing, but they have enough credit in my fantasy bank to stick around for now.

In a yoyotastic week, I dropped around 500 places, then went back up around 400 places, so I suppose it’s all worked out okay in the end.

Team thoughts

The only member of my team who looks to be on his way out is Jota, £3.2m. The Wolves experiment over their four lovely fixtures was a moderate success, thanks to Jimenez and Jota finally bringing home the fantasy bacon against Cardiff. Even so, Jota has been largely disappointing, and will be making way for someone else this weekend. Here is my player shortlist to replace the Wolves man.

Lindelof £3.5m.

This would mean double Man United defence, which might not be a bad thing at the moment, especially for the price.

Kolasinac, £3.5m.

Decent fixtures after Man United, and obvious attacking intent.

Schlupp, £2.9m.

This one might sound a bit left field, but he has started the last five for Palace, the latest appearance coming on the left wing. Plus three assists in three games, and, the fantasy cherry on the top, Palace play Brighton, Huddersfield and Newcastle in their next three, and Watford in the FA cup.

Maddison, £3.0m.

Anyone who read my first article at the start of the season, will know I have a big soft spot for Mr Maddison. Leicester have a beautiful run of fixtures that I would love to cash in on. I’m also encouraged by the new managers message that The Foxes need to get more players around Vardy.

I’m leaning away from Lindelof, purely because he’s not a very exciting option. I think I am torn between Schlupp and Maddison. Leicester and Palace both have good fixtures this weekend, but I think the bonus of clean sheet points is swinging it in the Schlupp direction, particularly as I don’t see Brighton or Huddersfield scoring against Palace.

I will of course be checking the team sheet before hand, but it looks like it’s Jota out and Schlupp in.

Good luck boys and girls.
