Fantasy Football - Gameweek 4

Fantasy Football - Gameweek 4

The Team

Gameweek 3 finished with 32 points for the Premier Skills team on the Premier League's official Fantasy Football game. You chose the team and decided to go with Zlatan Ibrahimovic (4 points) as your captain, in a 3-4-3 formation. Every week, you choose the teamselect the captain (double points) and nominate players to sell and buy. In the Premier Skills League, we are in 20th place with 145 points. Congratulations to Robotics managed by Abhay Airan from India who is currently top of the Premier Skills League with 171 points. How is your team doing?

Last week, we had problems all over the pitch. None of our players scored a goal and we only kept one clean sheet! What should we do?

Rich: Rich here. Welcome to our fantasy football discussion points. Jack and I are here to talk about the Premier Skills Fantasy Football team and the players that you think are right for the team.

Jack: We had a bit of a disaster this week, 32 points. Our worst week so far! What happened?

Rich: Well, I don’t think the Premier Skills team was the only team to have a bad week. We have Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sergio Aguero in attack and these two are the most popular strikers in the fantasy football game.

Jack: Yes, no goals and only four points between them, that definitely brought our score down. What about the rest of the players?

Rich: well... On a more positive note, you - our premier skills listeners chose our highest scoring player last week.

Jack: That’s right - we asked you to choose a defender and a midfielder for the team and you chose Manchester Utd’s Antonio Valencia.

Rich: And he scored 9 points for the team last week. A clean sheet gave him 4 points plus three bonus points. So a good choice there.

Jack: You also chose Hull City’s Shaun Maloney who didn’t do too well - just one point for him but, because he was cheap, it means we have half a million pounds in the bank for our next transfer.

Rich: In fact, none of our players scored a goal last week. Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne picked up 6 points with an assist but that was it.

Jack: Let’s hope for some more luck after the international break.

Rich: Of course, there are no matches this week so we have nearly two weeks to think about our team.

Jack: We want you to tell us who we should sell and who we should buy in the comments section below and who should be in our starting eleven.

Rich: In the vote this week we’re going to look at the three power plays that are available on the fantasy football game because in our next match we’re going to use one of them!

Jack: You can only play these once a season we have to be careful which one to use.

Rich: There is ‘all out attack’ which means we can play all our attackers and just 2 defenders.

Jack: There is ‘bench boost’ which means we can also play all our substitutes and they will score points.

Rich: Or we play ‘triple captain’ which means our captain scores triple points instead of double in that gameweek.

Jack: We want you to look at our team and decide which one to choose and at the same time choose our captain for next week.

Rich: You chose Ibrahimovic again last week but he only scored 2 points! Should we pick him again or go for Aguero?

Jack: Maybe we should go for someone else - it’s the Manchester Derby next week!

Rich: What about the Premier Skills League - the Premier Skills team dropped from 6th to 20th last week. I’m in 24th place after scoring 40 points.

Jack: In first place is Abhay Airan from India. His team is called robotics. But it’s very close and people at the bottom can easily catch up.

Rich: I know, the Premier Skills League’s top scorers with 56 points last week were Moataz Iraqui from Egypt. His team is called Chelsea&Al-ahly. And also with 56 points was Fabio Ghiorzo  from Italy. His team is called Ghigo Team.

Jack: He only joined the league last week and has nearly caught me up already!

Rich: I saw that you got 16 points! How is that possible?

Jack: I know. I thought I had a good team but I think I’m having some really bad luck. For example, last week my captain was Riyad Mahrez and he missed a penalty which meant minus two points for a total of zero ….and you can double that for my captain for a total of zero!

Rich: I’m sure your team will get better!

Jack: I hope so! Remember! We want to hear from you! How did your team do last weekend? What changes are you going to make? Are you happy with your team?

Rich: We’ve got next week’s matches on the side of the page to help you.

Jack: And, use the comments section to discuss the Premier Skills team. Which players do you think we should move out of the squad and which players should we buy?

Rich: Remember, you can register your own team on the fantasy football website and join the Premier Skills League at any time. I’ve added the link and the code you need at the bottom of the page.

Gameweek 4 - Power Plays

In the Fantasy Football game, there are three 'Power Plays' that can be played during the season. We are going to play one of them after the international break but we have to decide which one. Read about each and tell us which one we should use for Gameweek 4 and then choose this week's captain!

'All out attack' - play all our attackers and just two defenders.

‘Bench boost’ - play all our substitutes and they score points in addition to our starting eleven.

'Triple captain’ - our captain scores triple points instead of double in the next Gameweek.

Finally, in the comments section, let us know which players should be in the starting XI this week and which players should be on the substitutes bench.

32 points! Not that good. We were 6th in the Premier Skills League last week, we're now 20th! Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne cost a lot and aren't performing well. It might be time for a change. What about Chelsea's Eden Hazard or Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez? What does everybody else think?

I wouldn't spend the option Bench Boost because you haven't good players that can give some points. I think that the option 'triple captain' is the best and I would choose Sergio Aguero.
I agree with you that it would be good idea sell Mahrez because for now he isn't the same as the last season, and buy Alexis is a good chance.
