Premier League Fantasy Football Week 26 selections

Success! Well, of sorts anyway. Our team last week picked up a total of 94.5 points, for our second highest tally of the season, to finish 23rd out of 144 entrants in our particular league. As predicted, Chelsea swept aside Huddersfield, so Hazard picked up 30.75 points while Arrizabalaga earned 14. With hindsight, we should’ve selected more Blues.

Draft Kings‘ game has six matches from which we can pick our team in week 26, so by using our algorithm to find the players who have performed best over the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our VIII. Before we reveal our squad, here are the matches.

Fantasy Football Week 25

Premier League Fantasy Football Week 25 selections

A common theme of our fantasy football selections is that we have a couple of players who do well, but the other six let the side down. Exhibit A: our team from week 23. Aside from Paul Pogba and Roberto Firmino, who both scored, nobody else in our squad picked up double figures. Maybe this is the week our fortunes change?

Draft Kings‘ game has six matches from which we can select our team, so by using our algorithm we’ve found the players who have performed best over the last six match weeks, and chosen our squad. Before we reveal our Fantasy Football week 25 team, here are the matches.

Our week 22 team may not have won us any money, but we did pick up more points than we have for quite some time. Mohamed Salah top scored with 18.5 points, with the likes of Ben Foster (15) and David Luiz (14) also making decent contributions.

But, much like Supergrass, we’re in it for the money. Draft Kings‘ game has seven matches from which we can select our team in week 23, so by using our algorithm to find the players who have performed best over the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our squad. Before we reveal all, here are the matches this week.

Our team from week 20 was one of our better recent efforts. Mohamed Salah may have run riot against Arsenal, with a goal and an assist among his collection of contributions, but he wasn’t our top points contributor.

That honour fell to Cardiff’s Neil Etheridge, who made seven saves including a penalty. As just 6.8 percent of contestants selected him, he was a shrewd pick. He doesn’t make the team this week, but we’ll get to that shortly. Before we do, here are the matches in Draft Kings’ game this Saturday.

Our algorithm has been put to work to create a leader board, and here’s who we sifted out into to our eight man squad. Read More

You would’ve thought that picking Manchester City’s goalkeeper for a home match with Crystal Palace would be a safe selection, wouldn’t you? But these are strange days for the champions, and so Ederson contributed minus six points to our team last weekend. Cheers, mate.

Anderson, Hazard and Sané all hit double figures, but it wasn’t enough to put us among the cash prizes. Before we get to our fantasy football week 20 selections for Draft Kings‘ game, here’s the matches from which we need to select our side.

If in doubt, select Felipe Anderson. Good luck, see you next week.

Wait, come back, I’m only messing around. But there is some truth in that first statement; the Hammer was our top performer in week 16, and he backed that up by picking up 15.5 points last week too. But will he be in our fantasy football Week 18 team and make it a hat-trick?

Before we get to that, here are the matches which are included in Draft Kings‘ game set on Saturday.

We were, alas, a fair way short of the cash prizes with our team last week. It’s a shame our eight man crew couldn’t have all been like West Ham’s Felipe Anderson, who picked up 19.75 points for us. As the only player to earn more than nine, he was undoubtedly our star man.

But like a shark, we have to keep moving forwards. Below are the matches for Draft Kings‘ game on Saturday. We’ve run the last 60 Premier League matches through our algorithm to produce a leader board, so let’s see who’s in our fantasy football week 17 selection.

And so to fantasy football week 16. Our main hero from last week’s team was Shane Duffy, as he scored and picked up a total of 16 points. He often features in our team of the week, so it wasn’t really a surprise. Leroy Sané and Wayne Hennessey did okay too, but our other quintet largely sunk without trace.

Here’s our leader board for the last six match weeks, from which we’ll select our Draft Kings team. Before we look at who the Twelve algorithm has opted for this week, here are the matches which are included in the game on Saturday.

That’s better. We may not have won a cash prize last week, but our team mustered more points than they had in the previous two combined. A definite step in the right direction.

You know the drill by now; we select a team for Draft Kings’ weekend game. To do this, we run the last six weeks of Premier League matches through our algorithm, to see what the best eight man squad we can assemble is. The full leader board is here, and these are the matches.

Premier League Fantasy Football selections: Week 13

Whisper it, but fantasy football games are really difficult to do well at. We certainly proved that with our attempt at Draft Kings‘ Saturday contest prior to the recent international break. Long-term Twelve favourite Roberto Pereyra was the best of our bad bunch, but as none of our players got into double figures, that’s damning the Hornet with the faintest of faint praise.

As always, we go again. Here are the matches which are included this week.
