Fantasy Premier League- 2016/2017 — GW2

Gameweek 2 got off to the worst possible start. A pathetic 36 points, almost 20 points lesser than the average points for the GW. I am not going to over-react and take hits and shuffle my team. The frontline has to be altered, that’s for sure.

  1. No Zlatan or Kun in my team AGAIN.

Ibra scored a brace and I didn’t have him in my team. I thought it couldn’t get worse. I didn’t transfer in Kun as well, because I thought Stoke would keep him quiet. I trusted in Shawcross and Co. Let me down immensely.

2. Transfers

I saved up my free transfer.(bad bad decision). I gave Sanchez another game, thinking he’ll get another game upfront, and he did. No goals from him, though. Ozil almost scored of his assist, and that was the maximum impact he could have had. Not a great game from Sanchez in the nil all draw against Leicister.

Sucessive Captain Fail. I put faith in Vardy again with the Captain’s arm-band hoping he’d find the back of the net at least once. Not to be. Kane got an assist, and had a decent game. However, he’s the one I am looking to transfer out to free up funds for Zlatan. I need to turn things around, and turn them quick. My mids had a below average GW. Hazard impressed against Watford. Barkley had a pretty good game too, assisting Mirallas for a well taken goal.

3.Backline

Mcauley was the only goal scorer this GW for me, a header. I doubled up on West Brom and dug my own grave in the process. Backfired. No clean sheets in the backline. Stones is proving to be a nuisance, and it’s difficult to bench him or transfer him out because he is priced very attractively.

4. Injury

Andy Carroll faces several weeks out due to knee injury, confirms Slaven Bilic.

I had in my team, hoping Payet would cross the ball often for him to net it in, towering above defenders. Didn’t happen. In fact, he has hardly registered shots on target. Now, he is injured. I’ll let him rot in the bench for a week and then, transfer him out. I don’t think too many people own him for price to fall.

Overall rank has taken a huge hit and going from 200 k to 1 M is pathetic. I hope to come back stronger next GW, with several players having favourable and home fixtures.

21st in Banter. BAD

Still closer to the bottom of the league. A lot of pressure on next gameweek. Need my boys to fire.

Next Gameweek:

I have already made a couple of transfers and I strongly believe my transferred in players will give me 15+ points combined. I hope its a 70+ gameweek. Lets see.

Until next gameweek, goodbye. Cheers.
