It’s no surprise that I’ve had a tough start, my team has been struggling.
Since GW2 I’m at my highest rank (which is still awful) but my team is gathering momentum.
I scored 13 more than the average after my points hit in GW10, Aguero not playing meant Vardy as vice got some returns and I wa helped by the double Foxes clean sheet and Azpi’s haul. Sometimes hits work and sometimes they don’t, but I’ve been so far behind I needed to take risks.
Having players early on that didn’t start well and then sparked in to life hurt, but I have learned from those mistakes. This week my priority was trying to somehow get Sane into my team, despite being a rotation risk he is in the form of his life and he was phenomenal in person during the two games I’ve recently seen him in. However, getting him in was an issue due to needing a lot of free money or downgrading a big player. I didn’t want to lose any of my front 3 or Salah just yet, which meant Azpi was the casualty despite their fixtures due to their defensive woes. His replacement was an old favourite in the form of Charlie Daniels, and then Sane came in for Fabregas (-4).
My team selection was pretty straight forward but I’m opting for De Gea over Elliot and if needed Kiko. Captaincy has to go to the returning Harry Kane.
