Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams for TFF’S week 29

Bryan O’Rourke

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

Total points 1,266 Overall rank: 7.3k

So another slight push up the leader-board.
Son must go after his injury and will not return to this team this year so no prodigal Son here.
In comes Jimenez at Wolves, a player I like and with some reasonable fixtures ahead. I’ve blown the budget by making two further Wolves transfers, Otto and Doherty in for Holgate and Guilbert. A bit of a punt but both have assist potential and Villa and Everton’s fixtures don’t look too appetising in the short term.
13 transfers remaining. Good luck.

Sergio Torija

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

Gameweek points 93 overall rank 10k

I was having an ok week thanks to my defence, until KDB points / Mahrez no show turned things around. Need to work a way back for him, but can wait until after Leicester away / EFL final / fa cup (probably KDB doesn’t play). That’s why injured Sterling went for Martial and no KDB, at least he scored too.
My missed transfer of Son two weeks ago kept punishing with 2 more goals, although he is now out for the season, so eventually a saved transfer…
The Greenwood gamble, hasn’t worked, so with all the money possible in the bank, I can get any striker. At the moment I am undecided, the expensive options of Aubameyang and Aguero don’t inspire me, probably the most sensible is Vardy with great fixtures coming up and no Europe commitments. But Abraham, Ings and Jimenez are also decent alternatives.

good luck this week Geekers !

Ben Humphrey

Ben finished with an overall rank of 576 last season

Week points: 44 Rank: 8.0k transfers remaining: 14

Team review.

The mighty Norwich came so close to getting something from the visit of Liverpool, and even though they kept Salah and co quiet, Mane came off the bench to get the winning goal. The double Liverpool defence just keeps on giving, and Mane will be on his way back in to my side.

Grealish summoned up an assist, while Martial and Ings both found the back of the net.

So over all, not a bad week, but my rank did drop a little after the Man City game on Wednesday and the no show for Master Mharez.

Team thoughts

As I have sign posted over the last few weeks, Mane will certainly be coming back in. There are two ways I can make this happen. I can remove either Mharez or Martial.

I am leaning towards keeping Martial at the moment. The uncertainty of starts for Mahrez irritates me, and there is also the league cup final on the horizon. I can also hope that Mahrez plays this Saturday, and maybe even gives me a leaving gift before he makes way.

Other than that, everyone else is safe, and may remain.

Good luck everyone.

Stephen Troop

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

Overall Rank 5.7k

A bit of an average set of fixtures for me, rescued by KDB at the end. Mahrez benched was painful as he has been a disaster of a transfer so far. I’m up to 5.7k and have a healthy amount of transfer left and this is a good time to use some to try and climb a bit further. With City in the League cup final, there are a number of 3-0 opportunities after City play this weekend. I’m thinking of removing both KDB and Mahrez for this, with likely targets being Mane and Jiminez (although I can’t quite afford both in a straight swap). KDB would likely come back in after the 3-0 but unsure about Mahrez. Will assess all the 3-0 options and make a decision after Saturday’s games and likely tweet my transfers as I make them.

Good luck all
