A Nightmare on Fantasy Premier League Street

in #sportstalklast year


Just wow.

What an absolutely terrible week I've had in Fantasy Premier League. Almost every player in my starting 11 let me down and I've slipped massively in every league I'm in.

Big results will be required to bridge this gap now.


Let's start at the back. What a disaster. The tried and tested defenders of Liverpool and Manchester City both had awful times of it this week. Zinchenko, of course, was part of the Manchester City team that conceded 2 goals. Alexander-Arnold and van Dijk were let down by a comical error by stand-in goalkeeper Adrian and my clean sheet points vanished.

My midfield simply isn't getting the job done at the moment. Salah was relatively quiet this week, perhaps explained by a lot of minutes in the legs following the extra-time endured midweek. Fraser, Perez, Sigurdsson and Milivojevic have all been bog-standard over the last 2 games, however.

Vardy had a difficult task against Chelsea but should have scored and, sadly, Haller didn't make the matchday squad. To make things worse, Lundstram remained firmly on my bench and netted 14 points I've missed out on.

A total of 23 points simply isn't good enough. I have a lot of thinking to do before next weekend but I think I may use my free transfer to move Fraser out of the team as he'll be up against Manchester City.


I wish you better luck next time!

That late Southampton goal didn't help you. However, average points total this week was 34 (still 1 game to play) so yeah it was a poor week but it wasn't like there were masses of points out there anyway

If Haller didn’t play and Simpson was left out then presumably you’ll get those 14 points on the bench?

Sadly, due to formation issues, I don't think Lundstram would have been brought in from the bench.

Yeah he will. You’ll just revert automatically to a 4-5-1 at the end of the round

Well, I sure hope so. Let's see what happens after tonight's game. 14 extra points would certainly help!

That can easily happen in a week, just watch the stats over several months, they will even themselves out.

By the way I bought a striker playing for Norwich for my bench, so I kept him there and then he goes and scores a hatrick at the weekend! Hope that makes you feel better lol

Yeah, not the best start but I have faith in that midfield to start getting some good returns soon. Ah noooo, not Pukki on the bench haha!

Hey man. Why are we not seeing you again in scorum

Hi mate. I have left Scorum permanently

Long season ahead, so there's plenty of time to catch up! My defence has let me down the past two gameweeks.

I don't like playing with so many midfielders. I won the fantasy world cup league playing a 5-2-3 formation, but I'm finding it difficult to get clean sheets in the premier league. I might need to try something else.

I've also been making posts on my page, if you're interested in checking them out. Would be nice to talk strategy with a fellow steemit manager!

Good luck for GW3!
