Unless you come across someone with Schmeichel (14!), Martial (don't even want to think about it), TAA and Salah, scores will hopefully be mediums!
I have TAA, Martial and Salah (only because of free hit) and still annoyed because I took the captaincy of martial and put it on Kane!

But i could make up another 20 points on leader after 20 points last week (depending on City and Arsenal)

Then I just have to get the -8 right to adjust my team and I have a chance of battling back

I didn't even dream of taking TAA and Bruno out, as for one thing i'd have lost 0.5m value.

Yet after my wildcard I noticed I was down to a really shoddy team value of about 101.5m or so!

Shocking. So that reigned some of my options in, but a midfield 4 of Son, DB, Mane, Bruno, with Jimi and DCL up front, and TAA, Lascelles, Doc at the back seemed solid enough...

Did test the lineup with Martial in, but I've fallen for the heavily back your own team thing before and when it went wrong, both your fantasy team and real life suck!
So at least I got to cheer the goals this way in real life!

Only got Bruno in from Utd. Martial scares me despite after today. Still go for Rashers ?

Had Martial as captain, traded Auba and Tralee for him and Rashford before this round. I’m laughing so hard now.

I got Martial and Bruno. I like them being midfielders with the extra points for goals and clean sheets. Playing 3-5-2 formation now.

I'm on About 56 but so annoyed.

Last game week, my rival had Lascelles who kept a clean sheet. This week I have Dabruvka, who concedes. Last week I had Salah and he didn't play. This week we both have Salah as Captain :mad:

Jimenez has been very reliable for me, thankfully Mané and VVD got some points so I have a good base for a KDB captaincy haul tomorrow.

I'm on 56 with 2 to play which I don't think is that bad.

I need to get rid of Aguero but don't know who for.

Mane with bonus as well over Salah. Pretty nice when Salah had 1 goal, 1 assist and Mane only had a goal.

I might have one of the highest scores in the world this week. I’ll be on 92 points with Pope and KDB to play. Would be on 97 if I managed to swap Baldock for Dunk in time (was late by an hour).

I imagine the highest score is pretty high. Rashford, Wan Bissaka, Salah, TAA, Martial(captain), Jimenez must be someone that got them all

Yeah I don’t mean literally the highest of all but top 10k or something. I had all of them except for Wan Bissaka. Martial captain too.

80 points pre-bonuses on a successful free hit (hoping city don’t do much damage)

Am reverting to this team next week and would appreciate some input...

Leno - Nylund
TAA - Baldock - Lundstrum - Soyuncu - Luiz
Grealish - Martial - KdB - McGinn - Mahrez
Aubameyang - Aguero - Mousset

I think the gamble has paid off, as I made big gains both for DGW and FH and am back in contention.

I am going to -8 to give myself a promising team for next GW, and I need to get it right to have made it all worthwhile.

I am thinking Aguero, Mousset and Luiz for Jimenez, Ings and Doherty

Then next week, worry about my GK, but also fancy getting in another United player (not rashford)

Any thoughts or advice?

I only have Gomez and I got rid of Salah in prior to the restart because I was worried once the league is won Klopp will want to rotate to get some of the players not on 10 appearances with a medal maybe.

Is it paramount that I bring him back in?

I still need to get rid of Aguero and with Pep saying he's going to change his team again, Jesus doesn't seem that attractive to me now.

Can't really lament not having Mane or Salah because I had no Wildcard drafts with one of them and Martial in the team. 79 with KDB and Martinez tomorrow means this could be one of my better weeks this season, despite Bruno as captain being the only man so far to not deliver! Hopefully Watford score and Ings blanks.

Interestingly Magnus Carlsen is #1 overnight again. He Free Hit after using Bench Boost last week. Seems a pretty good idea in hindsight to get more knowledge for the second and final Wildcard.

I thought I had my work mini league sewn up before lockdown. Had a 80pt lead over second place when football was stopped. The guy in second place has just got 121pts on DGW and he's on 92pts this week with 2 players still to play. He's going to have halved my overall lead in 2 bloody weeks.

He's still got free hit and TC left too. I only have BB. Its going to be very very close. Squeaky bum time.

Pool's next game is against City. Wait and see how it plays out. Klopp brought in few kids yesterday too after the game was wrapped so it's possible he will rotate, especially to give Minamino gametime.

As for Aguero, I think there are enough forwards right now, including Auba.

Is it a stupid idea to free hit for GW32+ with no Liverpool or City player? I think it will be a tight game. I've got TAA, Mane and KdB

Could get 3 United players in, 3 wolves, a few Arsenal Spurs, Chelsea players in

Urgh these rotations and injuries are costing me transfers. -4 to get Foden and Aurier in before pricechanges makes it impossible. Feel like I've got a wide squad now. No Chelsea players though.

Pope
Trent - Laporte - Aurier - Doherty - Robinson
Martial - Son - Bruno - Kdb - Foden
Jimenez - Auba - Greenwood

On paper, probably the best squad I've had this year, but the fixture-list is filled with great fixtures for everyone. Only 1 scouser worries me a bit though.

Pissed off that I went for Bruno rather than Martial this week - got too focused on avoiding price rises !

Still United smashed it and I'm still top of my cash mini league so shouldn't complain too much

Still got 4 players to play today too

Who would you guys get rid of Aguero for?

I have Jimenez, Rashford and him up top.

Is there a like-for-like replacement out there you recommend or go for a cheaper-middle option 6-8) and upgrade Saka?

Depends. I'd watch Arsenal today and probably get Auba in as they have Norwich at home next.

It might be worth a punt. I have a free hit left myself, I have no idea when I'm going to use it though.

Looking at my team, I'm relatively happy with what I have going into GW32+, so I'll avoid using my free hit.

I may just leave it to the final day, where hopefully, team news could be leaked before the deadline for a number of teams.

I thought this would be the last 'logical' week to use it.

Liverpool are playing city in a game where city will make it difficult as they don't want Liverpool to win the title against them.

We have an easy match against a team that can't score in a brothel, arsenal are playing Norwich, Wolves against a shitty villa team etc...

I went moved to a 3-5-2 with a bench fodder striker and then went big in the middle:

Bruno / Martial / Son / Mane / De Bruyne
Jimenez / Rashford​

I only have 2 Liverpool/City (Trent/KDB) players with 3 United, 2 Arsenal and 2 Wolves players.

My team is now

Pope
Doherty TAA Fernandez
Salah Martial KDB Bruno
Jiminez DCL Jesus (just put him in for Aguero)

Stevens
Cantwell
Jack Robinson

It couldn't be much better in my opinion, but still struggling to catch anyone.
DCL needs to go next but he's surely due something.
