Fantasy Football Week 35

Premier League Fantasy Football Week 35 selections

Not to boast or anything, but we had a good week last week. You? We won $0.48 from our $0.25 stake, which obviously makes up for the times we’ve drawn a blank.

Our two main men were up against each other, and responsible for all three goals in their match. Paul Pogba captained our team of the week, while Felipe Anderson got on the score sheet at Old Trafford too. Nobody else in our team did much of note, not that it mattered in terms of raking in the big bucks.

Draft Kings‘ game has five matches from which we can select our team this week, so by using our algorithm to find the players who have performed best over the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our lads. Before we reveal all, here are the matches included this week.

Premier League Team of Week 34

Premier League Team of Week 34: Paul Pogba’s Penalty Prowess

The Premier League weekend was almost a week, seeing as it was stretched across four days. Liverpool and Manchester City continue to battle it out at the top, only three points separates the rest of the big six, and are Cardiff done and dusted? If they are, it didn’t stop them contributing to our Premier League team of week 34.

Goalkeeper: Neil Etheridge. Burnley 2-0 Cardiff City.

Were it not for the efforts of Etheridge this season, Cardiff would surely have been relegated already.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Premier League Preview

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview: Can the Reds avoid the Hazard in the road?

Liverpool vs Chelsea. Is any game more loaded with significance for title challenges? Five years ago, Steven Gerrard fell over after receiving a pass, allowing Demba Ba to give the Blues the lead at Anfield. It was ‘the slip that shook the world’, or at least it was based on the amount of fans of other clubs who still go on about it.

Half a decade on, and the Reds are in a far better place than they were then, whether they win the league this year or not. A victory here and they’ll reach 85 points, which is one more than they finished 2013/14 with, despite having four games left to play. But winning won’t be easy, as they’ll be taking on arguably their arch nemesis. No, not Demba Ba. Read More

Premier League Fantasy Football Week 34 selections

How did you get on last week? We did okay, but if we had eight James Maddisons, we’d have done a lot better.

The Leicester man was responsible for over 40 percent of our points total in week 33. Luka Milivojevic did what he usually does – score a penalty – to pick up a decent tally, but none of our other six players broke double figures. No one ever said it was going to be easy.

Draft Kings‘ contest has five matches from which we can select our squad in week 34, so by using our algorithm to find out which players have performed best over the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our eight man team. Before we reveal who’s in, here are the games this week.

Premier League Fantasy Football Week 33 selections

We picked the wrong Leicester man last week. Our algorithm selected Jonny Evans, but it was Wes Morgan who got on the score sheet. Our top performer was David de Gea, who made seven saves in United’s 2-1 win over Watford. The Red Devils shouldn’t be conceding eight shots on target at home to anybody, but I’m sure with Ole at the wheel their years of defensive ineptitude will soon be put behind them. Maybe.

Sadly de Gea was unable to save our team, as his colleagues Pogba (who did next to nothing) and Lukaku (who didn’t get off the bench) provided just 1.5 points between them. Oh well, on we march into week 33.

Draft Kings‘ game only has three matches from which we can select our team, so it should be an interesting contest. By using our algorithm to find the players who’ve performed best over the last six weeks, we have assembled our squad. Before we reveal the full team, here are the matches included this week.

Everton vs Arsenal Premier League preview

Everton vs Arsenal Preview: Another Close Encounter?

Everton vs Arsenal is an intriguing little contest. While the former have little of any real significance to play for, they come into the match on the back of winning two league games in a row for just the second time this season. As they dispensed with Chelsea and West Ham in those matches, could the Toffees make it a London treble here?

For Arsenal, a top four finish looks a distinct possibility; indeed, the bookies have them behind Tottenham but ahead of Chelsea and Manchester United. Since their last league defeat, the Gunners have won five and drawn one. They’ve also completed all 10 of their games against other teams in the top six.

Things are looking rosy, though five of their last seven games are away from home. Arsenal’s April also includes trips to Leicester, Watford and Wolves, so a win here would be most welcome for Unai Emery. He may need to rotate later in the month thanks to European commitments. Read More

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Premier League Preview

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Mané vs Kane

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur is the first fixture in the post-international break run-in for two teams who currently lead their respective races but can’t be confident of winning them just yet.

Jürgen Klopp’s team are two points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table, but have played a game more. Spurs currently lead the four team chase for two Champions League qualification spots, which is just as well as their league form has nosedived.

In their last five games in all competitions, the Lilywhites have scored a total of four goals with Harry Kane bagging all of them. Only the European game at Dortmund has been won, so the return of Tottenham’s talisman hasn’t had a particularly positive effect upon their results.

The natural assumption would be that Kane has done little other than score in these matches. His dashboard from the league games neatly puts that notion to bed. Read More

Premier League Fantasy Football Week 32 selections

Our algorithm loves Harry Maguire (if destroyed definitely still true). The Leicester City centre-back is a regular pick in our fantasy football team, and he made the cut last time out. Sadly for us, within four minutes at Turf Moor he’d been sent off and sunk our team in one fell swoop.

We were also in the 49% of contestants who selected West Ham’s Lukasz Fabianski. Who knew Huddersfield would score one, never mind three goals at the London Stadium? You get the idea; we stunk the place out last week, and there’s no point dwelling on it.

Draft Kings‘ game has six matches from which we can select our squad in week 32, so by using our algorithm to find the top players from the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our team. Before we reveal all, here are the matches included this week.

Premier League Team of week 31

Premier League Team of Week 31: The Main Man(é) Strikes Again

There were only five top flight games in England this weekend, but that’s no reason not to highlight the best performing players. Here’s our Premier League team of week 31.

Goalkeeper: Kasper Schmeichel. Burnley 1-2 Leicester.

Schmeichel only saved one shot at Turf Moor on Saturday. But he also made two punches, a high claim, and played a couple of relatively high value long passes as we can see here.  Read More
