Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

One on one? You're crazy.
It was that and the fact that i think i failed to play my TC at all last year due to misunderstanding how the chips work and (finally) i really need to beat you to get to top ten in H2H. This year has been ridiculous - i'm sure for about 4 weeks running at the end of last year i was the second highest scorer but playing the top scorer. 2nd bottom at xmas is not good.
We have a similar point score overall , but somehow I'm top of the league and you are well down the table .

The only problem with Wolves run of fixtures is that they seem to have developed a slight reputation for being more likely to turn up during games against the top teams.

For once I have a team that I am happy with, but I have to change it a bit anyway due to the missing games in week 27.

Wan-Bissaka is out of this weekends game.

I've got no pissing idea who to captain this week, and the failure of most city players to fall in ownership/value to the same extent that usually happens for blanks is also annoying.

My line up is a bit weird, frankly. I think I have played the right wildcard, which will mean the squad is back to normal next week.

I guess I am quadruple concerned at the moment. Nerves for 4 reasons:

Dont know who to captain (or who everyone else is most likely to captain).
Facing some people who will splurge one of their special cards this week.
The midweek gameweek in a few days, well the rotation risks associated with it and possibly weird evening form from some teams.
I've had a great run (eg made it back up to 47th in non-h2h league by week 20 and then got up to 20th place by week 26) and I'm afraid most of those gains could come undone over the next 10 days.

I've gone with Aubameyang as captain and decided not to transfer Aguero out, since his value seems to have gone up rather than down and there's a run of soft fixtures to come. Wondering if I won't regret bringing not bringing in cheap and cheerful Rondon though...

Not only is my line up weird, but it's also stupid. The one player I explicitly, deliberately, bought was Son. And I've left him on the fucking bench.

Such a good price just after he came back from international duty. In my line up.

Wan-Bissaka injured tho :facepalm:

Well so far its one of those weeks where the people who have left their teams with 3 or 4 empty slots and nothing on the bench, are getting away with it to a great extent. Because so many players are only picking up 0-2 points so far anyway.

Not that very many will find out hwo they've done this week until Sunday, where the high stakes battle of the captains mostly takes place simultaneously this week. Apart from those who were unlucky enough to captain Son or made a really wacky captaincy choice.

Just catching up with rearranged fixtures.

Wolves Man Utd moved from wk 33 to wk 32.
Man Utd Man City moved from wk 31 to wk 35.

4 games postponed from wk 31 still to be rescheduled.
Chelsea Brighton from wk 27 still to be rescheduled.
A maximum of 3 other games from wk 33 could yet be postponed depending on FA cup results.

Bah, wrong captain choice, Aubameyang is on the bench.

I know earlier in the season this didnt matter a few times because he still came on as a sub and managed to score multiple times, but I'm not managing to cling to that hope much this time around.

Never mind, at least there will only be a day or so for me to lick my wounds before the next gameweek.

Well that didnt settle much, though well done to those who had Lacazette as captain.

I think I managed to retain 20th place in the non-h2h league, and depending on bonuses I could have lost my h2h game by one point, drawn, or, as the bonus points system is starting to look as of writing, possibly won by one point.

Midweek rotation has worked out much better for me so far. Not that any of them have started playing yet but at least they will be duds on the field rather than duds on the bench.

Liverpool defender points madness. I've got Robertson and Alex-Arnold and still find myself greedy for Van Dijk :D

At least I sold Aubameyang before todays game.
I did not :(

Two Arsenal players in my team, one with -1, the other -2. Luckily the latter, Torreira, is second on my bench. Will be just my luck that two of my starting lineup don't play, of course...

Pogba wasnt content with going down to 0 points by missing a penalty, he fancied a yellow card too to ensure those who captained him got -2 points for their choice. I've got him but I didnt captain him. This gameweek is a right mess. I've got Duffy on the bench too, spent a while trying to think of a way to include him in my squad last night but I failed, more fool me.

I did :(

So, that's two missed penalties in my team, including one for the captain, 3 goals for Utd but absolutely nothing for Pogba or Rashford, Doherty coming on for 43 minutes leaving AWB on my bench, Patricio not on at all... I hate this game :(

Patricio not playing was one of the few things that was telegraphed well ahead of time in their press conference, but then I do have too much free time on my hands to keep an eye on these things.

I've done as crap as everyone this week so far, perhaps very slightly worse, and it certainly feels worse as I spent 8 points on transfers again. And I havent got Salah or Mane so tomorrow might cause me to be properly pummelled. Or perhaps Vardy, Hazard, Alex-Arnold and Robertson will be enough for me to get away with it again. My captain already failed, it was Sterling.

Either way I'm going to sink a good few places in the non-H2H league tonight.

Those penalty misses have ended my season. Mid table mediocrity it is.
Which table? Anything left to play for elsewhere?

Around this part of the season I like to cheer myself up by seeing who has already used a fair few of their chips and wildcard. I had a look just now and there are maybe half a dozen people above me in the non-h2h u75 league who could be vulnerable to various extents.

Oh now I am remembering that last season was weird in that I got more points out of the blank week where I used my free hit than I did in the double gameweeks where I used bench boost and triple captain. If the successful blank happens for me again then I'll be in a much better fantasy football mood in two weeks time.
