Telegraph fantasy football tips – FFGeek contributors show their teams GW20
Bryan Forbes O’Rourke
Bryan finished an incredible 7th place overall in telegraph fantasy football last season
45 gameweek points, total points 1,032, Overall rank 2,128 transfers available 21
The last 2 sets of matches have seen a slight ranking improvement to 2128 place. Quite how that happened I’m not sure with no Hazard or Anderson in this side. With Jonny Otto back it meant Ruben Vinagre has had his chips. To get a good replacement I transferred Mane to Sane to free up some funds for Balbuena of West Ham.
That was a transfer that was long overdue in any case to have some City presence in attack. I don’t expect to made any more changes whilst it’s rotation season, barring injury or suspension of course. The team looks good on paper and the transfer count is just about ok. Not much else to do other than eat, drink and make merry. Have a good new year when it comes :)
Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football
62 Gameweek points Total Pts 1,011Overall rank 3,804 Transfers available 18
A couple average performances the last couple of gameweeks saw my rank slightly drop to 3810. Mixed performances across the team with Salah, Kane and Anderson doing great; Robertson, Kolasinac, Hazard and Richarlison ok; but Alonso, Paterson, Ederson and Sterling poorly.
I did Lacazzete to Hazard at some point, and not planning on any further move this week.
Good luck for GW20 Geekers!

Now that was definitely a good week. There were some big scores flying around, so I was glad to collect 71 and jump up to just outside the top 2000.
I made a rage transfer on Wednesday afternoon. After Man City conceded again, I’d had enough. Ederson was unceremoniously kicked out and replaced with Kepa who was to play later that day. Unfortunately Chelsea were also unable to keep a clean sheet, but I am hoping there are some on the way with their fixtures.
Another of my team who was living on borrowed time was Mina. After checking the team news, and seeing that he was back in the Everton side, I gave him a stay of execution, not wanting to miss out on some good fixtures. Thankfully it all worked out, and he got his first PL goal, along with a KC. I’m hoping there will be more to come. The ever reliable Robertson served up another clean sheet, but the rest of my back line was a bit of a disappointment.
Hazard and Anderson both went in to overdrive, netting twice each, and even the benched Richarlison came on to grab a late goal.
My big two up front did the business again, gathering up 17 points between them, I shall be hoping they can keep it up.
I’m happy to stick with my defence at the moment. I will be looking to move Kolasinac or Mina on for another Liverpool defender in a few weeks when the fixtures switch.
The only other fantasy itch I might need to scratch in the next few weeks is Sterling. Patients really is the key with players like him. He will inevitably get more big scores, probably sooner rather than later, but for another £0.3 I can bring Salah back in, negating the constant worry every time he plays. I know Salah can score against anyone, but I will wait for the Arsenal and City games to pass before bringing him back in to the fold, giving Sterling the chance to give me a last fantasy gift
Good luck, and may your arrows be Norwich shorts.
