Here’s our World Cup fantasy football round of 16 day 4 article for Tuesday the 3rd of July which is based on our FFGeek team updates for the McDonalds FIFA format, Sun Dream Team and Telegraph Fantasy Football World Cup. There’s also the probable lineups and injuries for today’s games.
World Cup fantasy football round of 16 day 4 – the FFGeek team updates
Days and times in UK time for the remaining day of the round 16:
3.00 PM Tuesday, July 3 Sweden v Switzerland
7.00 PM Tuesday, July 3 Colombia v England
Here’s a table to show how the phases will lead to the final
Total points 181. Overall rank 70k Bench boost active. No Wildcard or Maximum captain used
A good day yesterday saw a 43k improvement in rank.
Knockout phase changes
You need to make your captain changes and substitutions before the first kick off of 3pm UK time Tuesday 3 July
Make sure you make the changes in the round of 16 tab. It defaults to the quarters so it’s easy to make them in the wrong area especially on the desk top version
I’m using my bench boost this round and my wildcard before the quarters. You can use the WC with the chips so I may use max captain at the quarters too.
As I’m using the bench boost I wont bother making substitutions. I believe this is how Rob Reid is doing it as well
I’m also sticking with my original captain of Pavard who got 6 points doubled to 12.
Here’s the team as it is now. I can’t imagine I will make any changes but if I do I will at least tweet any changes probably around 2pm UK time
Kane and the bench of Sommer, Quintero, Claesson and Granqvist through the bench boost will all play.
If you’re looking for stats on potential players for their clubs for today here are my key articles. Remember though they were done prior to the tournament so you need to see at least how much they played in the Group stages before you pick anyone and also look at the probable lineups below
Sun Dream Team
Total points 259 Overall Rank 24k transfers used 16 out of 20
Another good day and an 8k improvement in rank. Coutinho didn’t get a 7 disappointingly but the Hazard transfer went well.
In retrospect you can transfer a player for a game after the first 1 in a match day as long as the player out’s team hasn’t played on the matchday and the player in’s team hasn’t played on the match day. Here’s the rules which I think I interpreted incorrectly at first. The Sun Live chat have verified it as did some other managers who have used it so it seems safe
An eligible transfer will take immediate effect and will occur if you transfer a Player out for another Player where neither the outgoing Player’s Country nor the incoming Player’s Country have played during that Match Day.
If you’re looking for stats on potential players for today here are my key articles with stats mainly for their clubs. Remember though they were done prior to the tournament so you need to see at the very least that they played in the Group stages and appear in the probable lineups below
No transfers today. I need England to win to not put me in a difficult transfer position
I’m unlikely to make any transfers but if I do I will tweet them probably around 2pm or 6pm UK time
Here’s the team as of today with yesterdays points.
Telegraph fantasy football
The standard team: Total points 276 Overall Rank 16.7k transfers used 0 out of 20 in for the remainder of the tournament
The Def Block team: Total points 296 Overall Rank 9.6k transfers used 0 out of 20 in for the remainder of the tournament
In the telegraph you definitely can make transfers between matches.
the standard team
A good day with only Lukaku and Coutinho failing to return out of 7 players. A 7.7k rank improvement
I’ve got 3 England players today so I won’t be making any transfers.
If I change my mind I will at least tweet those transfers probably around 2pm or 6pm UK time.
Here’s how the team looks with yesterdays points
the defensive block team
Despite some pretty nervy minutes the Brazil defensive block worked a treat yesterday coupled with Neymar and Hazard getting points saw a 12k rank improvement.
No plans for transfers today
If I change my mind, I will at least tweet all the transfers around 2pm UK time or 6pm
Here’s the team then as it stands with yesterdays points attached
If you’re looking for stats on potential players for today here are my key articles which have stats mainly for their clubs. Remember though they were done prior to the tournament so you need to see at the very least that they played in the Group stages and appear in the probable lineups below
I will put probable lineups from whoscored before each match day.
That’s it good luck today
