Fantasy Football Tips – 20/08/15
Mr Blue’s Fantasy Football Tips
After a fairly successful start with 33 points being scored from the seven players recommended, I will look to better this, this weekend.
After a second consecutive clean sheet, I advise sticking with Romero again this weekend, with United facing a poor Newcastle side, who lack fire power. But for those who may not be able to include Romero, maybe you have reached the limit of United players, there is another suggestion below.
Hugo Lloris (£5M)
Maybe a weird choice considering Tottenham’s defensive frailties and Leicester’s free scoring attack at the moment, but after throwing away a two goal lead on the weekend, I’m confident the Spurs team will turn it around with a quick response. They will be looking to reassure the fans and their manager they can defend for 90 minutes, stopping any panic buys on deadline day.
Like Romero I recommend sticking with Smalling for another week, who could turn out to be the player of the season, well in terms of scoring points in fantasy football. Still only £6.1M, you better acted quickly before his price increases.
It may yet be another United player, but points are points and I expect Darmian to become one of the top scoring defenders after the weekend fixtures. Still a very cheap player for any squad, Newcastle are unlikely to breach this solid defence.
Andre Ayew (£7.1M)
A player slowly gaining in value he has two goals in two games and will be looking to score more against a Sunderland side who have conceded seven goals already. With Sunderland desperate for points it’s probable that they will be looking for the win, hopefully giving space to Swansea wingers Ayew and Montero to exploit.
A high scoring player after the opening weekend fixtures, I expect a close game between West Ham and Bournemouth, which doesn’t scream goals. But what I can see is Kouyate constantly attacking the penalty area and cause havoc with his ariel presence. A very strong player in the air, if he can get the jump on the Bournemouth defence, he is likely to score.
Mame Diouf (£6.5)
A persistent runner against Spurs on the weekend, I expect more of the same against Norwich. Likely to be a more open game, Stoke are likely to dominate possession which should provide Diouf with at least one chance to score. At £6.5M he may be seen as a slight risk, especially as transfers are pivotal.
Teams to avoid
I will keep this one simple this week, just do not include any Newcastle players. Though I don’t think Sunderland have a chance, someone may score a goal, something I don’t believe Newcastle can do.
