Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams for TFF’S week 24
Bryan finished 37th in TFF last season and 7th in 17/18
Total points 999 Overall rank: 21k
999 points scored overall which places this team in 21060 position overall.
Despite another Liverpool clean sheet this team’s ranking has remained horizontal. Fortunately all 11 players are fit so it’s a case of as you were, with no transfers planned this week. With 0.7m in reserve, I will be looking to bring in Salah for Sterling next week to make the most of Liverpool’s extra game. 18 transfers left which is fine for this stage of the season.

Sergio finished with an overall rank in the 300’s last season
Last week was good with 58 points, boosted by Mahrez and Rashford +10 point hauls. Getting Mahrez instead of KDB a few couple of weeks back due to budget reasons is for now coming out good. The Liverpool defence again chipped in, as also did Salah and Abraham.
Two worries in the team for this week: Rashford seems injured and fixtures are mixed, so probably makes sense to swap. While Barnes seems to have lost the place and is taking a valuable midfield spot, but he is cheap and can play FA cup for now. So few options here:
-direct move Rashford to Firmino
-Rashford to another Liverpool defender
-get Mane, but would require a double move
-or just hold and hope Rashford recovers
The Liverpool vs United game is the last on the week, so I will hold till then, and most likely just remove Rashford if not available.
Good luck this week Geekers!
Ben finished with an overall rank of 576 last season
Week points: 61/5 Rank: 10.1k transfers remaining: 18
Well I must say, that was quite a satisfactory week. I went through with the two transfers I spoke about last time. Salah and Mharez came in and brought a flurry of welcome points with them. As Mharez was racking up the points, I could imagine another version of me in a parallel universe who had decided not to make the transfer. We have all been there. This has left me teetering on the brink of the top 10,000, also with a helping hand from Martial’s bonus 5 points from the FA cup.
The loss of Man City’s clean sheet with the last kick of the game was a bit of a kick in the teeth, and just reinforces my acquiescence to ship out Ederson next time funds are required.
I am far too close to the edge when it comes to transfers used, so I will be doing my best to leave things as they are for a while. My Liverpool contingent certainly won’t be going anywhere, with their upcoming double game week. How many of them play both games is another matter all together.
Considering Leicester have played both Liverpool and Man City of late, I think it would be silly to call their recent form an issue, but I will be keeping a close eye on them with regards to my double defence.
I am then largely happy with my team at the moment, and barring injury, won’t be making any changes this week.
Good luck people.

Stephen finished with an OR in the 900’s last season
Weekly Score 67 Overall Rank 9.7k
After a number of good weeks, I came crashing down, dropping almost 3k places. Ederson losing his clean sheet late was tough and double Leicester defence conceding 2 also hurt. Double Liverpool defence did come in however. KDB was my only other returner.
I kept Son for the cup replay, given Sterling was benched, with the intention of now taking him out after the lunchtime kickoff this weekend (and hoping he played midweek). Sterling, however isn’t filling me with too much confidence so Mahrez could come in. My other option is to wait until after the Norwich game midweek and go Salah. This will involve needing to find 0.5m and Mount could be the fall guy to fund this. Tough call as whilst Salah has the extra league game vs West Ham, he is less likely to play in the FA cup game than Son.
Good luck all
