Dan’s Transfer Targets – Gameweek 40
By Sky Sports Fantasy Football reigning champion Dan Cox, I’ll get one more use out of that tag line.
So we’ve made it to the last week of the season and there’s not a great deal of planning to make. All the fixtures this week are all on the same day so you don’t need to worry about having a captain for the various days like we did last week. The only thing to really consider is who will take the armband this week.
If you do have the luxury of having any transfers left then you could really make them pay this week. Many people might be stuck with non starters or injured players, so you can take advantage of being shrewd with your transfer count. Especially if there is a lot of rotation with nothing really to play for in the seasons final set of fixtures. Again as all the games kick off at the same time you will be able to see the starting line ups before making any transfers and captaincy decisions.
I’ve been monitoring his form over the last few weeks and again Wilfred Zaha is well and truly on my radar. A favourable game at home to relegated West Brom should result in another decent points haul. The Ivory Coast winger has been in sensational form over the last five games with four goals, one assist and three MOTM awards resulting in 54 points.
Again Mohamed Salah is a great option, to be honest when isn’t he? At home to Brighton he has to be a strong contender for captaincy also in my view. He’s had an amazing season and has broken many records and received many accolades. The latest being the Football writers player of the year. His 360 Sky points make him the highest scoring player of the season by some distance. And I think it’s safe to say that his 9.4m price tag will be considerably higher next season.
Harry Kane has been rather disappointing of late. With doubts over his fitness and his form being poor, it’s not ideal leading up to a World Cup. Spurs host Leicester on Sunday, who also have been poor form losing four of their last six games. So its an ideal opportunity for Harry Kane to sign off on a positive in the season finale. Tottenham beat Leicester 6-1 at this stage of the season last year with Harry Kane scoring four goals so I’m hoping for a repeat performance from the England hitman.
Raheem Sterling is another player who’s had a fantastic season. With 18 goals and 15 assists he’s been in sensational form. Especially when you consider he’s priced at a very reasonable 9.8m. Manchester City travel to Southampton on the last day and I think Raheem Sterling is a player you shouldn’t overlook. He was rested midweek but hopefully that means he will start this weekend. With four assists, two goals and two MOTM awards in his last four games equating to 42 points, England fans will be hoping he can carry this form into Russia this summer.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in great form also. Three goals in his last two games, and that’s now eight goals in just ten league games that the Gabon international has started. Arsenal travel to Huddersfield Town, who might have taken their foot off the gas now they have secured Premier League safety. And with it being Arsene Wenger’s last game in charge of Arsenal I’m expecting them to sign off with a victory. In just over 4% of teams he’s not massively owned so any sort of return should see you climb the leaderboard and those all important mini leagues.
