Welcome to Andrew Ferguson's Fantasy Football Diary. Andrew is a veteran all-round fantasy football player, with five consecutive top 1% finishes (best 715th) and numerous top 100 finishes across multiple formats (Top 100 in #SkyFF and #TFF 18/19). He'll be covering his progress and tips through the season in Fantasy Premier League, FanTeam, Sky Sports Fantasy Football, Telegraph Fantasy Football and Sun Dreamteam exclusively for Fantasy Football Hub members.

Another Gameweek full of goals with penalties galore making/spoiling the weekend of many a fantasy manager. It is very difficult to sit on your hands at times like these but on reflection (after a complete Telegraph Fantasy meltdown on Saturday evening) it is probably best to play with caution and not chase the points although the temptation is very real! Monday evening really saved my bacon in FPL with Martinez and my double Liverpool defence coming the to the rescue albeit they conceded a poor goal. My 3m rank in FPL actually doesn't feel too bad at the moment with many experienced and successful managers struggling to get a foothold in the game and my recent wildcard setting me up nicely for Gameweek 4 and onwards with two free transfers in hand. I have started well in Sky Fantasy and Sun Dreamteam and am pretty excited for the coming weeks there, whilst in Telegraph Fantasy (ironically my favourite and most successful fantasy game), not only have I had my worst ever start but I also panicked on Saturday evening and made five (yes I said five) transfers which on reflection were ridiculous and puts my entire season in jeopardy. The international break has come at a good time to take stock and to also potentially assess the impact COVID-19 may have on our fantasy teams and indeed the fantasy games as our players jet around the world for a week or two. Transfers in hand and flexibility are going to be so important this season!

The weekend was a painful watch but thankfully Monday delivered the goods with Martinez and my Liverpool defensive duo delivering the goods to bag me a green arrow.
