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.
Our captain this week is Brighton’s Shane Duffy. It may seem odd to select a player from a team who have struggled so much of late, but our system rates his performances highly so he’s in. Duffy is partnered at the back by West Ham’s Angelo Ogbonna, while Nathan Aké has taken our utility spot so will be hanging around in defence to keep them company.
Three quarters of our midfield and attack is filled by Foxes. Leicester fans everywhere will be hoping the club makes Youri Tielemans’ move a permanent one, while Jamie Maddison has been one of the signings of the season. As for Jamie Vardy, well, he’s probably having a party, isn’t he?
Ayoze Perez is included up front – thanks in no small part to his recent goal against Leicester – and despite his howler on Monday night, we’ve stuck Ben Foster between the sticks. We still love you, Ben!
Here’s our fantasy football week 35 team in full. Good luck!
