This game is so often about captain picks and I got mine all wrong last week. In Aguero and Mahrez I was backing the league’s best player and the highest scoring fantasy pick this year, but they both came up short. Despite this, my team still made a small gain overall and I’m set up well for the weekend.
9 transfers left
This week looks fairly straightforward with Mahrez traveling to a Palace side who can’t buy a win. I’ll then switch the armband to Kane as Spurs play hosts to Bournemouth. Remember the international week follows so you can plump for any captain on Sunday.
Fixtures are out!
The fixtures have finally been released. I have not had a chance to go over them in detail but it looks like there will be plenty of opportunity to take advantage of the double gameweeks, especially if you’re stocked up on transfers. It could get very complex with careful captain switches and transfers potentially allowing savvy managers to make huge gains. I’ll release my plan over the international break.
