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.

    Dear All

    Minor point – though obviously important…The fixture tracker says that the deadline for transfers this GW is 14.00 on 15 April. There’s an early match (Bournemouth v Spurs), so transfer deadline time is actually 11.30.

    Don’t think for a moment that regular readers will have thought anything else, but someone checking the tracker for the first time and being unfamiliar with FPL might be misled…

      Yeah it’s because the tracker is planned months and months in advance and with me being away this week the lads had to work off an old version. Great job they did in getting it up and ready with the new DGW’s on too within hours of them being announced. It’ll be fixed on next weeks if any of the others are inaccurate. The Countdown Timer or the Fixtures tab next to Hot Comments or the FPL site itself would always take precedence for me anyway I think.

      • Qwkliduzzit says:

        Sorry, Init – didn’t mean at all to be critical of all your efforts. Just wanted to point it out to help any others who might have got wires crossed. I always look at the tracker, and think it’s the single most important feature on this site for planning ahead (quite apart, of course, from all the helpful support that everyone posts up). I missed the incorrect transfer deadline time myself until just now. I guess that anyone who’s spent the time locating this site must already be well into FF and quite sussed about transfer deadlines – though someone earlier this week insisted that 3-2-1 bonus points were available for each team, so maybe not everyone is absolutely clued in…

          No problem at all mate, rather have things pointed out so that they can be corrected. I’d certainly not spotted it but then again I’m only on mobile right now so it was unlikely I would!

    Firminho to Zaha and Costa to Kane for an 8 point hit? Already did Llorente to Bentekers. :p

    Hey guys, how goes the tinkering? I asked earlier about Zaha vs. Townsend but there wasn’t anyone around. Now that we’ve seen pictures of Townsend training and can assume he’s fit for Saturday, is anyone considering him over Zaha? They both have the exact same amount of points over the past 5 gws, but I’ve just had another look and Townsend’s stats are considerably better in that time. He’s also a bonus point magnet (9 bonus points to Zaha’s 3 in the past 5 weeks), is on corners, and is currently .1 cheaper. Zaha is the popular choice looking at transfers/ownership, but Townsend is looking like he could be a profitable differential pick. Would you go with the popular player to cover Zaha’s points, or is it the time of the year to be a bit maverick and look to gain ground on the masses?

      Didn’t know that about his stats there Red, interesting. I have Zaha already so not a decision I have to make but if I was it’d be down to any ML situation. If you have one? If not I think I’d go Zaha on a straight choice.

      Qwkliduzzit says:

      Hi, Red. I’d say there’s not that much to choose between them, so assume they’ll have equal chances of scoring well. I’d go for Townsend – lower ownership and the 0.1 saving could come in handy…

      RedVT says:

      Thanks init and Qwk, appreciate your thoughts. I do like the price savings, but that’s not my main concern. And due to his popularity and price rise tonight, Zaha will probably end up making you some money by the time gw34 comes around. I guess I’m just thinking about the strategy of owning the more popular player to cover his points, or going with a differential player to gain ground. Good call about the ML init. I’m leading all my MLs and my Banterbury group, so I’d like to keep that going. I’ll see what that looks like and factor it in. :)

      Bonus question for you guys if you’re still about. I have my WC and plan to use it in gw35/36, so I’m only concerned with the next 2-3 weeks. Knowing that, would you drop Tadic, Walcott, or Siggy this week for one of Zaha/Townsend? I was leaning toward Tadic as he has (CITY, che) up next, while the other two have decent matches the next two. Does that sound right to you guys?

      Raziel says:

      Yeah, I noticed that. I just hope Benteke shows some of his worth. Lol.

    Declared!

    Anyone has any strong opinions on the line-up it would be appreciated but I have ran the stats on the selections and other than McAuley it all looks good (he plays regardless, like a good luck gnome :) ).

    hi guys,

    I decided to keep transfer this week. any suggestions about choice of capo and substitutes?

    I was also thinking about Sanchez conundrum. I used this season as a sample to gauge if current situation has happened before. I have gathered data for 4 best mids this season and visualized their points gains per gameweek. I added 2,10 and 15 point lines for reference. I hope that it can be helpful in your considerations.

    few interesting points.

    if you look at Sanchez he had similar slump between weeks 7-12. only one sizeable return and 5 Blanks(5 points on one occasion so technically 4 blanks) Between week 15 and 24 only one haul of more than 10 points,once 8 points and the rest was 6 or less.
    I brought him before week 30 and didn’t get great returns so far but i guess i will keep going for little bit longer. As you can see even when he was playing up front he had bad times.At the same time after returns of 2 and 1 point in weeks 11-12 he went to score 14 and 23 in following 2 weeks.
    I guess I needed to convince myself to keep him. haha. I chose far from optimal momemt to bring him in.

    sidenote. how frustrating was Ericksen for first 11 GW or so?
