BOOM! We’re in the money! Shame we only enter a $0.25 competition each week, but a return of $0.75 is our best to date, and a better return than any investment portfolio can give you.
We went heavy on Liverpool against Watford, and they didn’t disappoint. Not that we could’ve predicted that our man of the week Virgil van Dijk would net a brace, but there’s always some luck involved. Sadio Mané also scored twice, and Alisson kept a clean sheet. Top work, Reds.
Draft Kings‘ game has six matches from which we can select our fantasy football team in week 29, so by using our algorithm to find the players who have performed best for the 12 clubs over the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our squad. Before we reveal the VIII, here are the fixtures for this week.
There’s two things you can say for Rafa Benitez’ Newcastle: they do very well in the second half of seasons, and they do well against teams outside the top six. Our ranking system likes Martin Dubravka and Fabian Schar, so they’re both in our squad for their trip to West Ham.
In midfield we’ve got two players who frequently feature in our teams of the week: Paul Pogba and David Silva. Both have relatively easy fixtures this weekend, against the south coast pair of Southampton and Bournemouth respectively, so should pick up a few points.
They’ll be playing incisive passes to Wilfried Zaha and Raul Jiminez, our forwards. They’re facing James Tarkwoski and Sol Bamba respectively, so perhaps our team will collapse in on itself? It’ll be fun finding out though, won’t it? Probably not, to be honest.
Here’s our full fantasy football week 29 team. Good luck for the contest, friends!
