Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams GW11

Bryan O’Rourke

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

Week points: 51 Overall rank: 59k

Well, last week reshuffle to a 5-3-2 with a semi block Liverpool defence went quite well with a Robertson assist. The extra points from Liverpool’s game on Sunday helped the team climb up the leader board. Other than that and points from the big hitters Salah, Sterling and Kane, nothing much to write home about this week.

For the first time in a while I expect to have a full team of starters this week, and with no transfers planned I’m hoping for a good score and a further push up the table. Best of luck.

 Team review

Last week was finally a chance for me to make some significant progress, and I blew it. As you may remember reading, I had planned to bring in Mr Vardy. Unfortunately, I got distracted, and completely forgot that the game was on Friday. Can you feel my pain?

Even so, I did still manage to make a small move up the rankings, to what I believe is my highest point of the season.

Ederson supplemented his clean sheet with an unexpected KC, and Leicester’s shut out was a nice bonus.

Sterling, Mane, Mount and Abraham all brought home attacking contributions, but Pukki suffered another blank.

Team thoughts

It’s all a bit, after the fantasy horse has bolted, but I WILL bring in Vardy this weekend. On the up side, Leicester are playing on Sunday, so I can let Pukki play on Saturday before making the change. I am still undecided as to where the extra funds will be found, but there is always a way. The obvious place to find the cash now seems to be Matip, thus rendering him a complete waste of a transfer two weeks ago. However, there is no one else that I am prepared to lose. I am hoping that once Vardy is it place, my team will finally come good, and there will be no need for transfers for a good while.

Good luck everyone.

Stephen Troop

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

GW10 Score – 50, overall score 441, overall rank 25.4k

After 2 weeks from hell in terms of points, this week was more respectable with 50 points and a c5k ranking increase. This is still well behind where I want to be but it’s progress at least. I had to make 2 transfers during the weekend. With the City lineups showing no start for Aguero and Otamendi, I made the switch to De Bruyne and Abraham. De Bruyne could be a season pick who will score consistent points and is less subject to rotation. Abraham has dropped off in recent weeks but is still posting positive underlying stats and is quite cheap. I also needed a striker spot for when I eventually get Salah back for Aubameyang.

Lanzini being benched was frustrating but for his price I will be holding on. I will have an eye on Trossard now he has returned from injury as a potential replacement if this becomes a more regular  occurence. Brighton’s fixtures are tough after this weekend so it’s not something in my immediate plans.

No transfers planned until this so this will hopefully be my team for a few weeks. It will be hard to resist a transfer for Vardy and ultimately it depends on whether I want Salah or Vardy long term.
