Steem Fantasy Premier League - Gameweek 14 & 15 Overview

in #steem4 years ago

Gameweek 14 was a gameweek with an average point score of 49. The gameweek will be remembered for Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Spurs in the North London Derby, Pickford last minute gift who gave Liverpool a 1-0 win in the 232nd Merseyside Derby and for the fact that not even a 2-2 draw for Southampton against Manchester United was enough for Mark Huges to keep the job as Southampton Manager. Before Southampton’s gw 15 fixture against Tottenham Southampton appointed Ralph Hasenhüttl as their new manager. Ralph Hassenüttl is known known for his achievements as manager for RB Leipzig in Bundesliga. In the 2016/17 season he helped the newly-promoted side to produce a sensational campaign, finishing second in the Bundesliga, behind only Bayern Munich. When asked about his football philosophy he once said: “The aim was to capture the ball, switch and quickly advance, in not more than 10 seconds”. Interestingly to see if he can get the Southampton team to play by his philosophy,

Gameweek 14 was as also the gameweek after which the premium forward debate started. After Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace (16 points) in Gameweek 14, the Gabonese striker was transferred in by over half a million FPL teams and his price went up with 0.3 million to 11.2m. His premium-forward colleague, whose display in gw 14 wasn’t as good, Harry Kane was transferred in by nearly 300,000 team. The reason to theses massive transfers is partly the the fixture swing for Tottenham and Arsenal but mainly the fact that Aguero (he miot owned forward before gameweek 14) missed out due to injury and was also an injury doubt for gameweek 15. Sergio Aguero was transferred out by 950.000 managers and that have to be some kind of record.

Gameweek 15

Gameweek 15 was quite a crazy gameweek with big point spreads and with a lot of rotation. Highly owned players like Sterling, Aguero, Salah, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Mané and Laporte were all rotated or injured while for example Alonso and Arnautovic scored 0 points. For myself gameweek 15 was “really very bad” as Chelsea manager Sarri use to say. One big reason in that was for example not owning the two “best-value-for-money” players in the game: Ryan Fraser (£6.2m) and Callum Wilson (£7.0m). A goal and an assist a piece for them in Bournemouth’s 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night helped both players to another double-digit haul.The pair are returning 13.9 and 13.3 points per million spent so far this season and are by far the best-value players in their respective positions this season. Somehow, with Bournemouth’s fixture until the end of 2018 in mind, I now feel it’s too late to jump on this train and I just have to hope they won’t keep on scoring in the same way in the upcoming gameweeks.

Manchester United ended up with home against Arsenal in a 2-2 draw and somehow it felt like a positive result and good performance from the Reds. Manchester United is not a team I would recommend from a fantasy point of view. In recent weeks I have even felt a bit sorry for Mourinho. Many want to see him sacked and I can fully understand this, but then on the other side I just feel that their squad and their squad depth isn’t as good as many thinks it is.

Chelsea are having a bad period, now losing 2-1 away against Wolves. Chelsea controlled the game for 55 minutes but then Wolves scored two goals in 5 minutes and after that Chelsea weren’t even close to getting in to the match again. Wolves deserved the 3 points and Sarri has got plenty to think about with a match against Manchester C
ity at the weekend. For example Alonso (owned by nearly 50%) have now had two really poor games in a row and I would not be surprised if he is benched against City.

Gameweek 15 showed me how harsh this game can be. My own team did awfully with a gameweek rank of 4,2 million and a BIG red arrow. At least my steem-pick (Sané) got attacking returns in both gw 14 and 15, even though the score were just 5 and 7 points respectively. In Steem Fantasy League Team “Meitanteiteam” keeps the first spot with two decent scores in both gw 14 and 15. The highest scoring team in our league in gameweek 15 was “Long Dong Fc” who sits in 13th place. “Long Dong Fc” scored 80 points with Harry Kane as captain and Richarlison plus the two previously named Bournemouth assets also scoring double figure points. Well done!

Ouch! LOL

GW 14 and 15 were really for me.

I got 78 points and 47 respectively. GW was good considering I Sterling and Arnie blanked.

My replacement for Arnie is Chicharito and he scored! Looking forward for City vs Chelsea
