The solid start continues as my team tots up 90 points this week and moves into the top 2k. Ibra and Aguero captaincy again pays off – although a punt of Defoe failed to deliver.
38 transfers left
£1.0 in the bank
If anyone knows how to view the team by week let me know as I can’t figure it out – just another annoyance with the clunky new Sky website.
I’m pretty happy with my team at the moment as most of them are bringing home points or at least showing potential to do so. Although Defoe failed to deliver, he’ll keep his place at least until he plays Everton on the 12th September as my captain.
The Ditch List
The recently transfered in Noble is a slight concern as he’s failed to pick up anything apart from appearance points, while Pieters and Nsue have returned a paltry 1 point between them so far. I’m not overly concerned about Pieters – Stoke fixtures begin to improve soon and he’s been close to picking up bonus in the both games far. Nsue will also keep his place as he’s so cheap – as long as he can hold down a starting spot. I’m not sure of the best replacement for any of these three either, so I’ll re-assess after the international break.
Davies (Hull) – I know its Hull but Davies looks a threat from set pieces and is likely to pick up a lot of MOTM awards when Hull don’t lose. At 6.5 he’s a decent option.
Henderson – Racking up the bonus points. A slight rotation risk but firmly on the watchlist
Gray – Came to life this weekend. Offers captaincy option later down the line. Unlikely to be able to fit into my team for a few weeks though.
Others – Pogba, Mahrez, Negredo, Hojbjerg, Sterling, Barkley
It will be a toss up between Hazard and Ibra for Saturday with Aguero the obvious route on Sunday.
Sean Tobin‘s “Detroit 442” takes the lead in the cash league with an incredible overall score of 199. Neil Fleeson‘s “Roumeli Rangers” moves up to second place with 189 – just ahead of last year’s overall winner Alan Wood whose on on 188. Neil Fleeson and Alan Wood also hold the top 2 places in the free league.
