After my post on the team psychology of Leicester, we’re back to normality with talk of Sky Fantasy Football. With almost all the fantasy big guns misfiring and my differential transfers shooting blanks, gameweek 39 turned out to be a non-event. Having spent all my transfers and my team in slight disarray, I’m not overly hopeful for the last 2 weeks.
0 transfers left
Where to start? Robles could be benched, Alderweireld could be injured, Fuchs and Mahrez could be rested, Bellerin and Iwobi face a tough fixture, Sturridge is highly unlikely to play both of his fixtures and Kane may be part of a demotivated Spurs outfit.
This coupled with just 2 captains means I’m expecting the worse. Still, there are reasons to remain optimistic. I somehow climbed a few places last week and with transfers in the top 100 down to just 0.58, many will be in the same boat. I’m also not trying to catch anyone either, just defending my lead, so it’s up to others to take a gamble.
With 6 teams having 2 fixtures this week and opportunity to have up to 4 captains, those with transfers in the bag could make a significant move up the rankings. Payet, Smalling, Robles and Sturridge will have a double for me, but I’m far from convinced the latter 2 will play both. Sitting duck comes to mind!
Kane is locked in as Spurs play hosts to The Saints at white hart lane. I have to hope that Tottenham and Kane aren’t too deflated as Southampton have picked up real form recently. Hopefully Kane will be gunning for the golden boot and manage to nick a couple of goals. I’ll then probably switch it to Payet, or possibly even Sturridge if I think he will start against his old club.
What’s your strategy this week? Any transfers left? Let me know in the comments.
