Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams GW8

Bryan O’Rourke

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

Week points: 33 Overall rank: 75.9k transfers left 35

33 points scored this week from my band of wounded soldiers. Positioned 75904 overall.

Not transferring out the crocks sooner has been the downfall of this team, I blame lack of concrete news but in truth I wan’t decisive when it mattered. That’s the trouble with cheapies, its too easy to let them sit, especially when they play for tops teams like Chelsea and Spurs. However my patience has finally snapped with the crocks, I’ve taken the bite for David Silva in place of Martial. I hope to get three good results from him before possibly bringing back Martial on Sunday 27 October. Likewise Walker-Peters is out for Tomori at Chelsea. Chelsea’s fixtures look appealing, just hoping Toni Rudiger doesn’t make a Lazurus like appearance any time soon.

35 transfers left. Good luck

Sergio Torija

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

Week points: 43 Overall rank:

Another stale week with 43 points, 6/11 returners was alright but all in the single figures
This week I play all to the blue, Salah and TAA out for Aguero and Mahrez, if Pep approves my moves by starting them that is. Next week Kane to Auba

Ben Humphrey

Ben finished with an overall rank of 576 last season

Week points: 43 Overall rank: 51,553 Transfers remaining: 34

Team review.

This is starting to feel a bit like déjà vu. Another average week. I have been slowly clawing my way up the rankings, but it’s hard going. At the back, it was just one clean sheet from Trent, and four points from Lowton.

In the middle, Sterling made up for last weeks absence with a goal, And last weeks transfer, Mr Mount came in with an assist.
Aubameyang just keeps scoring, and I feel much better for having him in my team. Haller chipped in with an assist, but I am hoping for more from him in the next few weeks.

Team thoughts.

I have already used far too many transfers, so unless anything urgent pops up, I shall be holding fire this week. I feel I am relatively well set up with the good fixture teams, so I’m hoping that preparation will pay dividends and give me some good scores soon.

Good luck everyone.

Stephen Troop

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

GW6 Score – 48, overall score 291, overall rank 24k

Another less than spectacular week points wise where I rose about 3.5k places, which is at least progress.

7 returning players is pretty good but no big scores. The double Liverpool defence finally got a clean sheet, as did Soyuncu. Sterling, Aubameyang with a goal a piece and a KC from Aguero and Mount.

Double City defence was a let down. Otamendi came in this week for the injured Duffy. I’ve been a bit late moving him on but the news on his recovery timeline was pretty sparce.

Lanzini was on the bench following his injury so I’m happy to hold onto him and Buendia is cheap and has a reasonable selection of fixtures in the short term so I have no plans for further transfers, particularly this week with the International break coming up. With Liverpool’s fixtures I’m happy to back Auguero and Aubameyang over Salah for the next few weeks.
