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.

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.

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.

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.

By getting 87.5 points last weekend, we assumed our team would’ve done reasonably well. Alas, the standard was super high and we were left for dust. While Raheem Sterling picked up 40 points for us, his strike partner Sergio Aguero earned just five. The star pick last week appeared to be Newcastle’s Ayoze Perez; just 2.5% of people selected him, yet the snub obviously motivated him to earn 35.5 points, and an all-important spot in our team of the week.

Draft Kings‘ game has just three matches from which we can select our team in week 31, and none of them feature the top sides so it should be an interesting competition this week. By using our algorithm to find who has performed best over the last six weeks, we’ve assembled our squad. Before we reveal all, here are the trio of matches.

Our team last weekend was the same as many before it: a mixture of the sublime and the ridiculous. I can’t recall having a team where three of the eight players scored negative points. That one of them was Paul Pogba, one of our top players this season, makes it all the more mystifying.

Wilfried Zaha scored 18.75 points, while Raul Jimenez top scored with 22.5 (and made our team of the week). But it wasn’t enough to save the shambles of a team behind them.

Draft Kings‘ game has six games from which we can select our team in week 30. 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.

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.

I’m sure Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would’ve wreaked merry hell against Huddersfield for our previous fantasy team had he played. But he didn’t. Nul points to us. Declan Rice and Kurt Zouma both played but only picked up half a point each, so were little better than our man who didn’t even feature.

Salah, Firmino and Robertson were solid picks as they all either scored or assisted against Bournemouth, and Bernd Leno made five saves against the Terriers for Arsenal. Our team wasn’t a complete bust, but it didn’t break the bank either.

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.

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?
