Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams for TFF’S week 20

Bryan O’Rourke

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

Week points: 57 Overall rank: 42k

57 points scored and a slight rise in the ranking to 42716 place overall.

Well the transformation from a Liverpool defence to a semi United block defence didn’t go too well, with no clean sheet and an own goal. Still, after boxing day I would like to think this team will be much better placed with some Liverpool assets returning.

The team has a clean bill of health as I write so no transfers planned till boxing day.

Merry xmas.

 team review

I am slowly clawing my way up the rankings, still hoping to end the year in the top 10,000.

This week was helped by a rare decent week in defence, with Ederson, Trent and Baldock all picking up clean sheets.

After Liverpool’s early game, I couldn’t resist the temptation to use the opportunity to bring in Son and Martial. It didn’t really pay off, but I’ve had a strong feeling that I should have Son in particular, and as long as he stays fit, I am hoping that Martial will prove a cunning Christmas move.

It was only Sterling and Vardy who managed to bring me any attacking returns, thus rendering the defensive contribution even more important.

team thoughts

I don’t think I will bring Mane back in for the Leicester game, and will leave it to the following week. At present, it will probably be Sterling making way, but things can change very quickly in fantasy land.

I feel better for having Son, who finally seems to have a manager who knows he is one of Spurs best players, and is surely as certain starter as anyone, other than Mr Kane I suppose.

Fingers crossed, I plan to enter the new year with 20/21 transfers. Not as many as I was hoping, but not disastrous by any stretch.

I am really looking forward to the Man City, Leicester game, and can see the Foxes taking all three points. Leicester are a bit like the Frodo Baggins of the Premier League, carrying the destiny of the footballing world around their neck. The fate of many rest on their actions.

Good luck everyone.

Stephen Troop

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

Weekly Score 67 Overall Rank 12.1

My best gameweek for some time and I rose around 5k places. Mane and the city trio all returning made up the bulk of my points as well as the double Liverpool clean sheet (albeit Robertson only getting partial points). Vardy and Trossard with a KC each.

I did 2 transfers given Liverpool’s blank this week. I did Robertson> Alli and Mane > Rashford. This means them playing 3 times before Liverpool play again, although the plan is to wait a further week to bring in the Liverpool assets back in due to them playing Leicester. Unfortunately both of these

blanked in the first week, preventing a greater rank rise but hopefully they can make up for it over the next 3 games. No further transfers planned until then.
