Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 37

Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 37. After the Negredo saga it seems like we regained some of our mojo. This week the team managed 79 points which was 33 points above the average. Our game-week rank was 150k and this allowed us to move back inside 40k after sitting at 58k last GW. We like to extend a big thank you to our defenders and the Chilean, who really scored well for us. Thirty points from our back four, helped in particular by our double CFC clean sheet. We also had a Saints defender and had shrewdly invested in a City keeper, bet that is not said often. Our mids did not do exceptionally well, but they did a job for us and the most important thing was we picked the right captain. Alexis with his 14 doubled was aided by King’s 5 and Hazard & Son combining for five more. Our front line grabbed us 11 points, so that was a let down, but in the end they were not just picked for this past week, but the upcoming one, so hopefully they can redeem themselves there. Ok, enough about the past, onto our transfer, chip use and captain selection for this upcoming game-week.

DGW37 Transfer – Gabriel OUT, Holding IN
And so when the time comes, as it will to us all eventually…

I have just instructed my solicitors that the following must be inscribed on my tombstone – “and he also spent 6 hours of his precious time on this earth discussing the possible Arsenal defence on WhatsApp ahead of DGW37 2016/17″…

Joking aside though, that actually happened! And guess what, after said 6 hours there was still no answer. To the point that some random Man United reserve right back emerged as a serious contender. Even though nobody even knew his name! Turns out he is called Tuanzebe or something but imagine us pitching up and trying to sell that one to you?! That was until someone suggested getting Anichebe for a hit as an enabler. Even our new friend Tuan started to look good again at that stage!

The issue of course was that we had Gabriel who looks highly unlikely to see much, if any, pitch time again anytime soon. But with no money to spare our options were limited to say the least. It was basically a £4.8m or less replacement, and of course preferably someone with a DGW. We discussed single game-week players, we discussed pretty much every player with a heartbeat. We discussed the Arsenal defence to the extent of who was left footed and who wasn’t. We ran scenarios. We ran projections. Some ran away. All were caught and brought back, but who can criticise them for trying!

We don’t often take any chances, hence the 6 hour discussion probably. But this week we may just have to. We discussed waiting until the Arsene press conference but even if we did it is unlikely he would present us with any more answers than we have already. Holding was the logical answer all along and so we are taking a chance that he gets both games. He will surely get at least one anyway and both fixtures look favourable so it is a chance we are willing to take.

We are playing our Bench Boost this week too. Although probably not quite as effectively as we would have liked!

The team in full…

CAPTAIN – Alexis Sanchez
Had he not sprung to life the other night then this could well have been another discussion but that’s what a goal does for you. He was ushered in with little fuss. There was a late cry for Jesus but Sanchez had already passed the threshold.

    Morning guys,
    hows this looking? -8 for the 3moves, (0 itb) BB is active
    leading my ML by 26 but my 2 main rivals have made 6 changes (-20) & 4 (-12)
    I’ve taken out Gabriel, Redmond and Matic

      Hi photek, I wish my rivals were that ambitious! They look like decent moves to me. Usual usual with Holding but that one is purely fingers crossed all round.

      photek says:

      Yeah its great Init, the one thats on -12 said last night he might make 3 more transfers…easy points for me :D
      I’ve got no chance of getting KDB in but i’m liking the idea of Fabs, i think he’ll get some good game time

      • inittowinit says:

        Another 3?! Mine took a -4 and I was happy :)

        Smacks of poor planning on their part and it’s probably why you’re ahead.

        Everyone is drooling over KDB because of last weeks score but the facts are this – that was his first goal in 12 games. He got an assist every other game in those. Take that as an average and yes he may cover the hit but probably not to the extent that people are hoping.

        • Mitro says:

          You ain’t helping with these comments init!! ;)


        • photek says:

          Yeah although i’d like KDB, i’m more than content with Sanchez and Haz. At least i know Haz will play the 1st game for sure and Arsenal are making a late surge for a top 4 finish which keeps Sanchez firmly in the plans.
          I’m sure my rivals have got carried away with KDB and his score last week but he’ll need to do that score in both games to cover the points spent on transfers ;)

        • Mitro says:


          Do you think Alli will score more than KDB over the 2 games?

        • Brookyboy says:

          I agree with Innitt it seems like everybody is chasing last weeks points with KDB,his shooting stats are pretty poor and he won’t play Palace every week !! Saying that I think he does play further forward when Aguero doesn’t play.

        • photek says:

          Tough one to call Mitro, I think if i had Alli i’d swap him to KDB just to nullify my ML rivals because i’m sure they’ve brought him in.

    Guys if you have no Arsenal cover would you do a direct swap Eriksen -> Ozil. I already have Kane. Just wanting to take a stupid punt? Kdb is out of question and would require some surgery. :) BB active and 1,2 ITB.
    Cech – Cabagellero
    Bertrand -Yoshi- Stephens- Alonso_ Vertonghen

    This is becoming “stressing”- thought I would have made my mind last night – apparently not! ;)
