Former Fantasy Football winner Dan Cox brings us his latest journal, documenting his Fantasy Football seasons highs and lows – did you fare when compared with
After climbing the leaderboard in each of the former game weeks, I found myself in 284th. I was preparing for a slight fall down the table ahead of this weekends activity.
I decided not to possess Sergio Aguero. Contemplating Gabriel Jesus had begun in midweek and the prior weekend had been lost by Everton I had been dreading the worst, especially as Aguero might have scored three or even four against Watford. Obviously I was happy and surprised to see Aguero begin on the bench, with Jesus leading the lineup.
This came after Mohamed Salah failed to score. Saturday was a day.
Everton believed to wash out my dual Manchester City defensive clean sheet. Aston Villa full-back Frederic Guilbert, despite exceeding twice, did get a help – in the game John McGinn felt and took the man-of-the-match award. McGinn has really been a pick since the Fantasy Football Overhaul with 31 points from three matches.
Raheem Sterling scored a late goal for me as I did possess a notion to make his captain instead of Salah but itd leave me annoyed.
It was about Leicester on Sunday. So I decided to hold firm and retain him 19, Id Caglar Soyuncu within my team. Newcastle have looked poor, especially going ahead, so I was hopeful of the blank sheet.
Jamie Vardy was a standout option and chosen for the Leicester striker – which he delivered with two goals, leading to a haul.
Monday Night Football saw Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford. It is not the match or rivalry that it once was, but it brought an opportunity for Fantasy Football points.
I was expecting any things but I was thrilled when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangs purpose was eventually permitted by VAR. He earned 14 points as my captain, that I was surprised to see only 22.02 percent of Fantasy Football teams prior to kick-off – I had been hoping this figure to be much greater.
I ended Gameweek 8 with 82 points. While it turned out to be a drop set on the leaderboard from 284th into 386th, I am pleased with my points and transfer count up to now.
