Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 33

Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 33. For fup sake. 55 fupping points. Ok, that’s the obscenities out of the way but c’mon, 55 points? I haven’t checked but I doubt we have been below the average on many occasions this season but we were in GW32. It may have been by just 1pt but we were still below it. We should’ve known what was in store at lunchtime on Saturday as Kyle Walker was rested and captain Eriksen picked up a solitary assist despite Spurs putting four past Watford. Our keeper and three defenders weighed in with a massive 6pts and with Antonio Valencia needing yet another rest we played the gameweek with just 10 players. 10pts from Eden Hazard were very much appreciated as were the nine from Josh King who climbed from our bench to replace Eyeore. Romelu Lukaku chipped in with two goals but the less said about Alexis Sanchez & Arsenal on Monday night the better. Naturally we ended the gameweek with a sizeable red arrow and we now sit 52,078. Some tough decisions need to be made…

Our transfers this week are: selling Alexis Sanchez and Fernando Llorente and buying Wilfried Zaha and Harry Kane.
Tough decisions were taken indeed and they come no tougher than selling Llorente. Only joking! They come no tougher of course than selling Alexis, who has been so good for us this season and is the highest points scorer in FPL. However, we are at that time of the season where big and possibly stupid decisions are made. And we have made it! No goals or assists in his last three matches was enough to attract the axe with not even two double game-weeks to follow enough to save him. Selling Alexis means of course we can buy Kane and also young Wilfried of South London – Zaha is in great form and despite a tough set of fixtures on the horizon, his form and double-game-week next week justified his inclusion while Kane of course needs little explanation or reasoning. Getting rid of Llorente is just a bonus.

The Team in full this week…

Our captain is: Romelu Lukaku
Despite his 13pt haul last week, Big Rom only just won the vote with Kane running him close. With the votes at 2-2 the deciding vote went to the Everton striker from a source who was against selling Alexis, so it was probably personal against Kane. From such reasoning, leagues are won and lost. C’mon Rom! Kane is vice-captain if required.

  1. Big moves guys but entirely reasonable.

    Best of luck.


  2. Great moves gang!!

  3. Personally think losing Sanchez could be a good thing with the way Arsenal are going their DGWs may not be as profitable as one would think.

    As for myself I need so help here, got a few options and don’t know which is best:
    A. Siggy and Llorente to Son and Gabbiadini
    B. Siggy, Lanzini and Llorente to Alli, Zaha and Gestede.
    C. Siggy, Llorente and Walker to Clayton, Kane and Jagielka
    D. Some other combo I’m completely missing!!

    I have 2 FTs and 0.1 itb so what do you think?

    • Hi Matt

      Sigurdsson’s next two have me wincing when considering him this week. Llorente would go first I think but you are restricted there with cash.

      I think Spurs needs to come in somewhere along the line here. Alli preferably but Sane to Son might work.

      • Hey GP.

        Yeah I wasn’t sure about selling Siggy but it’s him or Sane and to be honest I’m not sure whether selling Sane is a good thing with his upcoming DGWs. I want Spurs attack. Alli would be my choice but he’s expensive so might just end up with Son or even try stretch to Eriksen.

        Would you just drop Sane now since I already have Kun?

        • That was my initial reaction for your team yeah.

          It’s your call though mate. But at least you would one City cover.

        • That’s true. Think I’ll just have to sell Sane and hope he does nothing.

          Which one of those options would you do but replacing Siggy with Sane?

        • Sane to Son I think still mate.

        • Cheers GP

  4. Sup dudes!

    Like those transfers guys, brought in the same two players myself, for Sane and Vardy though.
    Also, many thanks to all the writers of this week’s articles.

  5. Between Valencia, Holgate, Azpi, Davies, Stephens.. Who to start at the back 3? I’m thinking Davies, Holgate, Azpi, with Valencia as first sub?

  6. Guys am i good to go here? Im tempted to keep my ft. I’ve .3 itb.

    • Any temptation to do what the Site Team did?

      • I considered it Initt, but I’d be afraid of losing Sanchez, then again not having Kane might hurt me too. What do u reckon?

        • I didn’t suggest the move but I did vote for it in the blink of an eye. I may be biased by my own opinion (if that’s possible, aren’t we all?) but I just feel Kane at home in their form is too hard to ignore.

        • Ok cheers Initt. I’ll have to think hard about it.

        • Hey, Man u man. You prepared to ditch Aguero to get Kane? If so, you could try Aguero + Carroll to Kane + King. I’d leave Origi on the bench and try to engineer eventually getting rid in time to bring in Gabbiadini for Southampton’s DGWs.

        • Kop ??

  7. Greetings all,
    As always, thanks for all the hard work keeping the articles on point.. I don’t know how I’m going to know what day it is in June when there are no regular FF247 media releases.
    Am I good to go? Did Walker and Aguero to Van Aanholt and Kane… anything else screaming out for a -4?
    Also.. Phillips or King in the starting 11?

  8. Hi, Siggy to zags worth a -4 this gameweek?

  9. Hey, Swampster. Maybe avoid the hit this week. Siggy could do OK at Watford. You only need to bring in Zaha for DGW34, so hold fire for now.

  10. Kun to Kane for a -4?

    • Haha, that sounds more like you’re asking for someone to blame if that goes tits up :)

      Think this ones a decision only you can make mate.

      • Haha not quite just wondering if it’s a good idea or not really. Seeing a lot of managers bringing him in this week.

        • I really fancy he should do well this week but hey how many times have we said that of him at home this season?! The answer is 3 by the way :) 3 sore captain picks!

          I’m bringing him in but not for Kun so I think that would be another discussion I’d have with myself if that was the case. Not sure would be my answer.

    • I bought Kane and Tekkers for Kun and Diomande for a hit so no regrets here for the Kun one. The hit depends a little bit on who have you already bought as I’d look at it as a whole.

  11. Evening all,

    1FT and 2.2m

    What do you think about Sanchez and Origi to Zaha and Kane?

    Or maybe bring Coutinho or Benteke in?

    Any other ideas?
