I’m not going to lie, I expected gw37 to go much better. With Lukaku benched on Saturday and a Man City fixture change, my planned quadruple captain strategy ended up being just 2. So, despite a ton score of 117 I ended up sliding back down the rankings. Still, I’m optimistic of bouncing back with my team set up well for the home stretch.
Transfer left 4
In the bank 0.0
Sadly, despite having them, I missed the monster captaincy hauls from Aguero, Kane and Sanchez last week. The good news though, is that I still have four transfers left and plan on hitting all but one captaincy over the final 4 weeks.
Im pretty happy with my team overall. Although I have to admit that I didn’t quite anticipate Everton being quite so bad in defence. Still Robles’s price does mean a better team overall. With Vardy out for possible 2 games, I’m hoping most can’t afford my trio upfront.
Liverpool are clearly a team in form and have great fixtures – the two key ingredients for successful fantasy picks. But, given Klopp’s love for rotation and a busy run in that includes crucial Europa League ties, there is no way of knowing who is going to play each week. So without wanting to flutter away transfers, I’ll begrudgingly avoid them for now.
Fairly straightforward strategy this week. At one stage, I had hoped I could sneak in Kane as captain on Monday, but the way things have fallen I’ll be avoiding the inform Spurs frontman. Instead, I’ll hope Aguero starts and gets amongst the goals as City welcome an off colour Stoke outfit to the Etihad.
I’ll then use my switch to get Sanchez in as the inform Chilean pays visit to Sunderland in what I hope will be a high scoring encounter as both sides go for the win. This sets me up well the following week as Arsenal play host to a Norwich side not known for keeping things tight at the back.

Be aware that West Ham, Everton, Norwich, Man United, Palace and Watford don’t play this week. I just have 2 players from those 6 teams, so holding my transfers tight and hoping to field 9. Although I’m slightly worried that De Bruyne (or possibly even Aguero) might get a rest given City’s Champions League exploits midweek.
How did your week go?
I expect there are some monster hauls out there. Let me know how you got on this week in the comments.
