Last week: You know the feeling. Your fantasy team is having a really bad week and you can’t wait for the next game week to begin, so you can get a chance to redeem yourself. Just then you realize that the gods are screwing with you, and a cup tournament has pushed the league matches, so you’ll have to wait 11 days for your chance to shine again. That’s sums up our feelings pretty well after the last game week. Not a lot went as it should, mostly because we completely underestimated how insanely Aguero would perform against Chelsea and Arsenal. Still, we’re determined to get right back into the game. Here are our suggestions for players to keep an eye on, in the coming game week.
Keeper: Etheridge (Cardiff) 4.7m
7 clean sheets have Etheridge and the Cardiff defense managed so far this season, and that’s not bad considering they’re placed just above relegation. Etheridge has earned 113 points, which is actually second best of all keepers, one point above Ederson (Man City). At 4.7m there’s definitely a lot of value in the transfer if you’re looking for a new keeper.
Defender: Chilwell (Leicester) 5.0m
Leicester is in a really bad form. No wins in the last 5 games, and in the last game against Spurs their top scorer, Vardy (Leicester), started on the bench apparently due to some minor spat with Puel. After being subbed in he missed a penalty and scored a goal later in the game. Perhaps this could be the symbol of a turnaround? They’ve had a rough schedule as well, but things are clearing up for all most the rest of the season, and they actually played a very good game against Spurs creating a lot of chances. Chilwell has made 3 assists so far, which is not great, but not bad either. There should be more in him, so let’s see if it doesn’t show over the next couple of matches.
Midfielder: Maddison (Leicester) 6.6m
If you believe that Leicester form will, in fact, pick up, then Maddison is a sure pick. Everything offensive goes through him, which also shows from his stats. 5 goals and 4 assists so far this season isn’t bad for a guy who played Championship before this season.
Attacker: Rondón (Newcastle) 5.8m
Newcastle has two easy matches at home against Huddersfield and Burnley in the next two game weeks, and even though Burnley’s defense is looking a lot better with Heaton (Burnley) back in goal, we believe that Rondon has good chances of scoring in both matches. So far he’s been involved in 9 out of the 22 goals Newcastle has scored.
Player to Avoid: Fraser (Bournemouth) 6.1m
Fraser’s form has really been declining lately. No goals or assists in the last 5 matches. On top of that Bournemouth is playing Wolves, Arsenal and Man City in the next three matches, so chances are slim that he’s gonna pick up performance.
Our Team and Transfers:
Holobas (Watford) got a yellow card in the last match and is now suspended. The timing couldn’t be worse, because we really needed him in this round. Watford is playing away against Liverpool in the next match, so this seems like an opportune moment for a transfer. Being forced to use the free transfer on Holobas, we don’t wanna exchange any of our points for more transfers, and is therefor picking both Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) and Shaw (Man Utd) for the starting lineup, even though they are playing each other and the chances of a clean sheet are slim. We’re bringing in Chilwell instead of Holobas, making the team look like this:
