Former Sky Sports Fantasy Football champion Dan Cox brings us his latest diary, documenting the highs and lows of his Fantasy Football season.
Gameweek 27 Review
Top 5 most transferred in players during the overhaul:
- Dean Henderson
No surprises here to be honest with Richarlison rewarding those that brought him in instantly with a 34 point captaincy on Saturday; the only reason I selected him was to box off the Saturday captaincy requirement. Aguero with a tasty home game against West Ham also looked a no brainier whilst Henderson and Baldock are cheap and good value for money with Sheffield United having a great set of fixtures from now until the end of the season.
Top 5 players transferred out:
No surprise with Sterling due to his poor form and injury but Traore is a bit of a head scratcher. He was one of the first names in my team along with Soyuncu and I think this is reflected when you see the ownership in the top 1000. Vardy and Maddison pay the price for Leicester’s downturn in form.
Top 1000 most selected
So I took all these stats on Sunday morning
- Aguero - 68.8%
- Salah - 62.4%
- Vardy - 23.5%
- Calvert-Lewin, Ings, Jimenez - all 17%
- Mane - 4.3%
- De Bruyne - 77.7%
- Richarlison - 65.8% (was 44.4% on Saturday before the first game )
- Traore - 52.1%
- Grealish - 49.3%
- Jordan Henderson - 18%
- Mahrez - 10.2%
- Alexander-Arnold - 87.9%
- Van Dijk - 75.1%
- Soyuncu - 61.1%
- Baldock - 61%
- Pereira - 17%
- Robertson - 14.8%
- Gomez - 9.3%
- Dean Henderson - 59.9%
- Alisson - 27%
So just by going with the most selected it was easy to put together a team of
TAA VVD Soyuncu Baldock
KDB Richarlison Traore Grealish
I think this is a very solid team and should provide most captains over the next few gameweeks except for the Chelsea v Manchester United fixture.
The Weekend That Was
Saturday was great, as mentioned my only player Richarlison grabbed 34 points as captain. So that was a great start post overhaul.
Sunday was frustrating. I had been checking the weather in Manchester since Friday night and I did have thoughts to perhaps not start with any Manchester City players but it just wasn’t workable for me. Luckily I had Sheffield United to cover the captaincy but Manchester City v West Ham could have been a real points fest. So for me it’s definitely a case of what could have been.
