THREETALKING POINTS AHEAD OF GAME WEEK 9 Game week 8 was a mixed bag for fantasy managers, ranging from the most transferred in and most captained player (Kane) getting a mere 2 points to the most owned player (Lukaku) also getting a mere 2 points. So ahead of game week 9, what are the major talking points that managers are grappling with as they look to make their transfers ahead of game week 9 deadline on 20th October 1900 UK time?
FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE CAPTAIN PICKS FOR GAME WEEK 8
Thank God the International break is over. We have had 2 weeks devoid of premier league action, which is literally like a whole year for a fantasy manager.
The internationals injury curse has robbed managers of some potential captain picks but lose no sleep, I got your back with this article.
My last article on game week 7 captain picks had mixed success thanks to a mixture of reasons. Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane rewarded us but Salah, Lacazette and Firmino ensured our predictions were not entirely successful.
We are hoping for a better week and better luck with our predictions this week, here are our front runners for the arm band.
Our list lacks defenders because of the obvious risk involved by defenders giving a good return on any faith put on them, seems like only Midfielders and Forwards make best candidates.
Want to buy De Bruyne? or Richarlison? read this first.
HUH!!!! Now the international break is here! It’s a nightmare for we the arm chair managers for various reasons, the main one being absence of premier league action for a good TWO WEEKS!!!. Other reasons are potential injuries to players that we already own, potential increase in prices to players that we intend to get after the break and the mileage covered by our fpl assets like Sanchez,Coutinho,firmino etc therefore increasing risk of being benched immediately after the break.
However, there is a silver lining for every dark cloud, this is a period of reflection and re-strategizing on how to move our teams going forward. It is because of that reason that we are now launching a new post that will run after every game week, it will be an analysis of the game weeks dream team in order to evaluate their potential and if they are good enough for your team going forward.
It is worth noting that only Ben Davies and Stephen Ward appear in the overall dream team at this point of the season.
Enough of the introduction, let’s delve straight into the analysis.
