Telegraph fantasy football tips – the FFGeek contributors show their teams for TFF’S week 26

Bryan O’Rourke

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

Total points 999 Overall rank: 21k

31 points scored from my Liverpool legends taking the team to 10459 position overall.

In what has been an annus horribilus, I take the positive from moving from from roughly 50K to 10K since early December. It shows that big moves can be made with the right transfers in.

This week, it seems everyone is fit apart from Abraham who appears 50/50 at best. In any case I will leave him in, because at his price I would want to have him back straightaway when fit. So no transfers made and 16 remaining for the season.

Good luck

Sergio Torija

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

TFF GW25 – 1137 points  11589 position 15 transfers

A good last week (62 points) and start to this one with the West Ham vs Liverpool game (31 points). This improved my rank to 11K. So still not great, but a lot better than the ~35K rank before Christmas. I did a cheeky injured Abraham to Greenwood move. He is not a secured starter, but at 3.2£ and striker, he can be a great enabler. At least with Rashford out and no signings upfront for United, he should contribute as he did last weekend with a penalty goal.

My bet on Liverpool defence has definitely paid off, unfortunately not so much the Leicester defence. Fixtures toughen up, and I’ve got cash in the bank to use. Soyuncu is cheap so he stays, it is going to be Chilwell to go, most likely for Son, for whom I’ve got the exact money.

That’s it, good luck this week Geekers!

Ben Humphrey

Ben finished with an overall rank of 576 last season

Week points: 66/24 Rank: 8.6k transfers remaining: 14

 Team review.

After a flurry of transfers, I have finally cracked the top 10,000.

The overpriced Ederson came out for Henderson, which has worked out well thus far, with my newly appointed keeper earning a clean sheet in the FA cup.

Another new arrival, Robertson, was a welcome part in my double Liverpool shut out against West Ham.

Grealish and Ings were the other two to come in, and the latter was kind enough to give me an assist.

Much like last season, I am very keen to play the fixtures where possible, and I think the big three teams to focus on right now in that respect are, Liverpool, Sheffield United and Southampton. I’m hoping that my recent moves have left me in good standing in this regard, with double Liverpool and Sheffield defence.

I also feel that I brought Salah in at just the right time.

Once Southampton get the Liverpool game out the way, they have a beautiful run of games, and I’m hoping that Mr Ings can steer clear of injury, and keep up the form of his life.

Team thoughts

I am now feeling pretty good about my team,(I have however said that before, and been forced to change my mind.)

The only future transfer I have planned at the moment, is to bring Mane back in when fully fit. He will most likely replace Martial, who I will be keeping a close eye on, particularly how he is effected by new signings at United.

Good luck everyone.

Stephen Troop

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

Weekly Score  Overall Rank 6.3k

Since the last update, I have managed to climb the rankings to 6.3k from 9.7k. This has involved some transfers. I firstly swapped Vardy to Firmino for the double gameweek and after Vardy’s injury which returned 1 goal in 2 games so far. To fund this, I moved Chilwell who has been benched a lot recently to O Connell. He got me 7 points in the FA cup game and now has a decent run of fixtures so happy with that.

After Mane’s injury I brought in Mahrez for the FA cup game against Fulham. Can’t believe I got nothing there. Jesus was an option, but Mahrez seemed better for the longer term at his price point. Finally Sterling went for Salah for the West Ham game, knowing Salah plays again before Sterling. Although I see me keeping Salah for a while now.

No more transfers planned. I don’t see Firmino being long term as he is too pricey for the returns but the fixtures are good. I’ll make some moved when City play the league cup final, as no doubt there will be some decent moves to make around then. I may consider a move for Son at the weekend, gambling on him starting the cup replay but it’s unlikely.
