The Haul – Fantasy Football Week 3

A big sigh of relief as our low scoring fantasy football team outscored our even lower scoring opponent. Up next is a date with the highest scoring team in the league.

Fantasy Football Week 3 Summary (for last week’s result, click here)

StakeHaul vs. Team #7

Week 3 Points: 103.6
Head-to-Head League Result: W 103.6-81.7
Record: 2-1
League Standings: 3rd
Power Rankings: 3rd
Total Season Haul From Side Bets: +$45
FAAB Dollars Remaining: $234

No FAAB Dollars Spent This Week

We thought about putting in a bid for Ryan Fitzpatrick to ride his hot start, but ultimately we decided against it. We couldn’t justify placing a bid on any QB when we have Tom Brady.

Here were the final winning bids from last week. All teams start with $250 at the beginning of the year.

  • Giovani Bernard, CIN RB – $48
  • DeSean Jackson, TB WR – $28
  • Browns Defense – $25
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick – $10
  • Calvin Ridley – $5

Other Roster Moves

We added Antonio Callaway (CLE WR) and O.J. Howard (TB TE) to our roster and dropped Philip Rivers (LAC QB) without spending any FAAB dollars.

Historically, rookie WR’s have inconsistent fantasy point outputs week-to-week, so it will be interesting to see if Callaway is one to break the mold in the same way the Cleveland Browns broke the mold and finally won a game.

Speaking of Cleveland, did you know the last time their record was above .500 was during the 2014 season? Fun fact, their record was 7-4 before they lost the final five games of the season.

All jokes aside, congratulations to the Browns, and we look forward to watching them grow into a respectable team.

Thoughts From This Week

The fantasy gods taketh Week 2, and the fantasy gods giveth Week 3. That seems to be the running theme this season, as our fantasy output has been inconsistent at best.

We easily could be 0-3 if our fortune and misfortune were balanced. However, our team faced the worst team going into this week, and his team continues to be butt.

When your QB is Tom Brady and is playing against a Lions defense that gave up 5,000,000 points to the Jets Week 1 with a rookie QB, you’d expect him to obtain at least double digit fantasy points.

Oh well, the only sure thing in fantasy is expect the unexpected. Did you know the Detroit defense forced Tom Brady into his worst regular season game by QB rating in the past five years in which he played the whole game?

On the bright side, Kenny Golladay, whom we drafted at the tail end of the draft, continues to produce. Also, Alex Collins finally produced above his fantasy point projections.

Finally, for the love of God Arizona, please fire Mike McCoy and start Josh Rosen for the rest of the year. We can’t take these ugly yardage outputs from David Johnson any longer.

Hear It From Our Week 3 Opponent!

I’m glad Tom Brady sucked it up yesterday and can’t wait for Antonio Brown to earn 50+ points to win this week for me!
(Ed note: Our opponent sent this to us before the Steelers Monday night game.)

We Won Our First League Side Game

Only two other league mates chose to participate in this, which was disappointing. However, we won $20 this past week by picking the highest scoring lineup from the Week 3 Thursday night, Sunday night, and Monday night games.

Week 4 Preview

Team #1 vs. StakeHaul

We’re facing the top team in our power rankings this upcoming week. However, we feel confident. In fact, we agreed to a $10 side bet on the winner of this matchup with our opponent.

Our opponent is also feeling confident. In fact, he states:

“I can’t wait to watch your cuck of a QB Tom Brady get put into another body bag as his farewell/misery tour continues. The Pat Mahomes train is coming to town, choo choo motherfucker.”

Our response:

“Mahomes will beg Von Miller for extra Old Spice after the Denver defense makes him shit himself all night.”

Will we make any attempts at waiver pickups? If so, how much will it take to bid to secure their services? Finally, will we win our side bet?

Tune in next week to find out!

Oh yeah, LOL Vikings.

The Haul – Fantasy Futból Week 6

Our FPL fantasy futból lineup is still holding down 2nd place, but unfortunate transfer decisions the last couple weeks are dragging down our total score.

FPL Week 6 Results (to see last week’s results, click here)

FPL Week 6 Points: 51
Total Points: 347 (includes -4 transfer hit)
Default League Position: 2nd (no change)
Head-to-Head League Result: L
Head-to-Head League Record: 4-2

Lineup Shakeup

  • (Free) Lee Peltier (DEF – CAR; 3.9M) to Ryan Bennett (DEF – CHE; 4.1M)
  • (-4) Bernardo Silva (MID – MCI; 7.5M) to Richarlison (MID – EVE; 6.6M)

Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (This Week): -14 (including -4 hit)
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (Season – Weeks of Initial Transfer): -21
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (Season – Cumulative): -6
Money in the Bank (GW6 Transfers): +0.7M
Money in the Bank (Current): 1.1M
Squad Value: 101.6M

Things We Like

  1. We liked our decision to captain Mo Salah. We made a risky decision to captain Salah over Sergio Aguero, considering the contrasting form of these two the past two weeks.
  2. For the second straight week, Aaron Wan-Bissaka nabbed a total of nine points due to a clean sheet and three bonus points. It goes without saying that AWB is the best budget defender in FPL, and we expect this defender to be in our lineup for the entire season.
  3. We wouldn’t quite call this a “like,” more so a relief. In our head-to-head league, we tried to bet $10 with our opponent this week on who would have a higher score. We wanted to make it interesting because our squads held the top 2 W-L records. They declined, and their squad outscored ours.

Things We Hate

  1. We took a -4 hit to sub in Richarlison for Bernardo Silva. This is by far the worst transfer decision we’ve made this season, in hindsight. Our team lost out on 16 total points because of this one move. If we miss out on winning our league, this move in hindsight will loom large.
  2. The move a couple weeks ago to transfer Trent Alexander-Arnold for Marcos Alonso haunts us. This transfer alone created a cumulative net loss of nine total points. If we waited towards the end of the first international break, we would have transferred out Benjamin Mendy for Alonso. Since we didn’t, we missed out on 17 total points.
  3. The transfer decisions above forced us to reshuffle our lineup going into next weekend earlier than we wanted to. There are players on our watch list whose prices have increased at a rate where it forces us to make potentially knee jerk decisions that could hurt us in the long run.

Looking Forward

After six game weeks, we are still in second place and 33 FPL points behind the first place squad. We’re hoping that any any transfers we do before game week 7 will start paying off for us.

Recall that the squad in 1st place after Game Week 20 will receive $450, and the team in 1st at the end of the Premier League season also gets $450.

Stay tuned for next week to see whether we gained ground on the 1st place squad.

2018 Fantasy Football Side Action

Our first fantasy football side bet begins with picking the highest scoring fantasy football lineup from the six NFL night games in Week 3.

We still have a bad taste in our mouth from this past week’s fantasy football loss. We’re talking a Human Centipede level of bad taste.

But hey, the show must go on. Now that the first two weeks of NFL played out, fantasy football players are getting a sense of how their players will play out for the remainder of the season.

Format

This bet focuses on the Thursday night, Sunday night, and Monday night games in Week 3. Thus, the three games are Jets/Browns, Pats/Lions, and Steelers/Bucs.

Our rules are simple:

  1. Pick a fantasy football team (one QB/RB/WR/TE/K/DEF). You may only pick one player on each of the six NFL teams in those games.

  2. Scoring is 0.4 PPR, and the same as our season-long league. However, the scoring for other positions is very similar to most ESPN leagues.

  3. The fee is $10 per entry. Each person may submit only one entry.

  4. Highest scoring team of the week gets all the cash. If multiple teams tie for the highest scoring lineup, then the winnings will be split evenly.

Lineups

Only three out of twelve teams had the balls to step up and compete in this side bet. We’re disgusted with our league.

The lineups for each team, including ours, are below:

Team #1

QB: Matthew Stafford
RB: James Conner
WR: Mike Evans
TE: Rob Gronkowski
K: Jason Myers
DEF: Browns

Team #2

QB: Tom Brady
RB: James Conner
WR: Golden Tate
TE: OJ Howard
K: Jason Myers
DEF: Browns

StakeHaul

QB: Ryan Fitzpatrick
RB: James Conner
WR: Jarvis Landry
TE: Rob Gronkowski
K: Matt Prater
DEF: Jets

Which Lineup Will Win?

On paper, the Jets/Browns matchup looks to be low scoring. Vegas oddsmakers agree. The Browns are also favored at home for the first time in forever.

Thus, it makes sense as to why the Browns and Jets defenses was picked.

On the flip side, both the Patriots/Lions and the Steelers/Bucs games look to be high scoring. The majority of oddsmakers set their highest O/U of the week for these latter two games.

Therefore, it makes sense as to why players from those four teams filled most of the skill positions.

Tune in next week to see the results!

The Haul – Fantasy Football Week 2

Well, this fantasy football weekend sucked. Our opponent has a short and not-so-sweet message to our readers for our cockiness.

Fantasy Football Week 2 Summary (for last week’s result, click here)

StakeHaul vs. Team #8

Week 1 Points: 122.3
Head-to-Head League Result: L 122.3-134
Record: 1-1
League Standings: 4th
Power Rankings: 1st
Total Season Haul From Side Bets: +$25
FAAB Dollars Remaining: $234

Spending FAAB Dollars Early

Since we consider Wisconsin our hometown, the majority of us are Green Bay Packers fans. Thus, we watched the Packers/Bears game Week 1, and saw how terrifying that Bears D can be with Khalil Mack.

I know most fantasy football “experts” say you should not roster two defenses. However, we had to have the Bears D, even with already having the Vikings D. Did you know that they placed in the top ten in fantasy for defenses last year without Mack?

Finally, we couldn’t believe what we saw in the Detroit Lions/New York Jets game. The Lions allowed 48 points to a team with a rookie QB in his first NFL start? That defense ate more ass than its fans!

Upon final review, we made a $16 FAAB claim for the Bears D and also drop the Lions D. The final waiver claims from this week were as follows:

CLAIM BID
T.J. Yeldon, Jax RB $36
Jared Cook, Oak TE $25
Austin Ekeler, LAC RB $22
Quincy Enunwa, NYJ WR $18
George Kittle, SF TE $17
Bears D/ST D/ST $16
Jets D/ST D/ST $8
Tyler Lockett, Sea WR $6
Corey Coleman, NE WR $2
Tyrod Taylor, Cle QB $1

Our $16 claim for the Bears D beat out another manager that bid $8. However, we weren’t done.

Other Roster Moves

The performance of the Lions D wasn’t the only fantasy football player that left us flabbergasted. Matthew Stafford’s performance against the Jets was just as ugly. And with Tom Brady facing the Jaguars defense, we wanted to start a different QB.

Thus, we made a free waiver transfer. Philip Rivers (LAC QB) in, Matthew Stafford dropped.

We made another free transfer by dropping our kicker Matt Prater (yes, we had too many Lions players) for Brandon McManus (DEN K).

Finally, with Marquis Goodwin (SF WR) hurt and inactive for Week 2, we decided to take a risk and sub in the one Lions player that played well Week 1 (Kenny Golladay).

Thoughts From This Week

The fantasy gods giveth Week 1, and the fantasy gods taketh Week 2.

We lost to a team that got 19 points from their kicker (Mason Crosby) and 4 points from one of their starting WR’s blocking a punt (Geronimo Allison).

We lost 4.5 fantasy points by starting Rivers at QB and McManus at K instead of keeping Stafford at QB and Prater at K.

The Arizona Cardinals are a dumpster fire. We have David Johnson, while our opponent had the Rams D. It is pathetic that not only did the Rams shut them out, but that the Cardinals didn’t get the ball past midfield until the 4th quarter.

So yeah. We’re salty as hell.

Hear It From Our Opponent!

How the mighty have fallen! The previously unbeaten and unmatched are now “kupping” the enormous balls of Melvin Gordon. An upset for the record books.

Week 3 Preview

StakeHaul vs. Team #7

We’re facing the lowest scoring team through two weeks. For the love of God, we better not lose this matchup.

Will we make any attempts at waiver pickups? If so, how much will it take to bid to secure their services? Tune in next week to find out!

Oh yeah, LOL Vikings and LOL Browns.

The Haul – Fantasy Futból Week 5

Our FPL fantasy futból lineup is still holding down 2nd place, but multiple members of our squad have injury concerns going forward.

FPL Week 5 Results (to see last week’s results, click here)

Week 5 Points: 65
Total Points: 300
Default League Position: 2nd (no change)
Head-to-Head League Result: W
Head-to-Head League Record: 4-1
Lineup Shakeup: (Free) Trent Alexander-Arnold (DEF – LIV; 5.0M) to Marcos Alonso (DEF – CHE; 6.7M)
Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (This Week): -4
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (Season – Weeks of Initial Transfer): -7
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (Season – Cumulative): +15
Money in the Bank (GW5 Transfers): -1.7M
Money in the Bank (Current): 0.4M
Squad Value Increase/Decrease From Transfers: +0.6M
Money Gained/Saved From Transfers & Available to Spend: +0.4M

Things We Like

  1. We’re fortunate that bench players automatically get subbed in for points purposes if a starter does not play in his respective match. In our case, we started Luke Shaw despite his doubt for the match. However, he ended up not playing. However, Ryan Fraser got subbed in and hauled us eighteen total points from scoring two goals, assisting on another, and three bonus points.
  2. It was nice to see Wilfred Zaha score a goal and nab two bonus points. Also, Aaron Wan-Bissaka nabbed a total of nine points due to a clean sheet and three bonus points. We needed all those points due to not one but two defenders of ours missing this week due to injury.

Things We Hate

  1. Both Mendy and Shaw did not feature this weekend. Since our one bench defender stayed off the pitch, we scored a big fat zero FPL points for one of our players.
  2. Well, it happened. We went against our own advice and knee jerked Marcos Alonso right at the start of the international break. We did this to lock in his price before it increased over the break. And while his price increased, we should have waited to sub him in for one of either Mendy or Shaw. That move caused us to miss out on six total FPL points.
  3. Sergio Aguero hurt his ankle. If he’s out for next week, that leaves us with one available starting forward since Danny Ings is not allowed to play next week against Liverpool.

Looking Forward

After five game weeks, we are in second place and 26 FPL points behind the first place squad. The first place squad scored a whopping 84 FPL points this past week. Below is his full lineup:

Recall that the squad in 1st place after Game Week 20 will receive $450, and the team in 1st at the end of the Premier League season also gets $450. Stay tuned for next week to see whether we gained ground on the 1st place squad.

The Haul – Fantasy Football Week 1

You know those fantasy football matchups where two of the top scoring teams happened to face each other? Yeah, that happened to us, but we managed to claim victory.

Fantasy Football Summary

StakeHaul vs. Team #6

Week 1 Points: 157.7
Head-to-Head League Result: W
Record: 1-0
League Standings: 1st
Power Rankings: 1st
Total Season Haul From Side Bets: +$25
FAAB Dollars Remaining: $250

The Trade That Wasn’t (Thank God)

We have a confession to make.

Prior to Week 1, we had trade discussions with the team that owned Le’Veon Bell. Yes, this Le’Veon Bell seen out partying like a boss in Miami last night without a care in the world.

Last Thursday afternoon, we saw the email from ESPN. The Bell team offered both Bell and Larry Fitzgerald for Alex Collins and Tyreek Hill. However, the Bell team quickly pulled the trade offer before we saw the email and analyzed it.

Yes, that Tyreek Hill. And that was the first touch of any Kansas City offensive player of the season.

We really wanted Bell. We were salivating at the thought of a lineup that would eventually start David Johnson, Alvin Kamara, and Bell come playoff time.

Eventually, through text, we agreed on the initial terms of the trade. I asked the opposing team to send it over so I could accept.

However, we saw another ESPN email. An email of a trade that was accepted. It involved Bell, but with another team.

Le’Veon Bell and Keelan Cole (WR JAX) for DeAndre Hopkins and Aaron Jones (RB GB).

WHAT THE HELL!? Thought we had a deal!?

Needless to say, this non-trade was a blessing in disguise.

Thoughts From This Week

Sometimes in fantasy football, it pays to be lucky. The non-trade from above may prove to be one of the best non-moves of our season.

Unless you are living under a rock, you saw what Tyreek Hill did to the Chargers. In fact, he was the 2nd highest scoring player in fantasy this week, and it took a performance from Ryan Fitzpatrick no one in the universe saw coming to keep Hill from being #1.

(Fun side bet idea: Will Ryan Fitzpatrick have another 4+ total TD performance this year? Perhaps someone will bite, but that number may have to be lowered to 3+ to get any nibbles)

Point being, had we traded Hill away:

  • We’d miss out on a $15 weekly side pot for having the highest scoring roster in the league that week.
  • We’d miss out on a $10 weekly side pot for having the highest scoring player in the league that week (Fitzpatrick was on waivers).
  • Most importantly, we would have lost our weekly matchup.

Week 2 Preview

Team #8 vs. StakeHaul

We’re facing up against the lowest scoring team that won their matchup in Week 1. However, a lot can happen between now and Week 2 kickoff. Teams pick up players from waivers this week more than any other week.

Will we make any attempts at waiver pickups? If so, how much will it take to bid to secure their services? Tune in next week to find out!

Oh yeah, LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Bears.

Side Action For Your NFL and Fantasy Football Season

Spice up your betting on the NFL and your fantasy football team with these side bets against your friends.

Week 1 of the 2018 NFL season is in the books. You realize that your season-long fantasy football team sucks. Your favorite NFL team (LOL Bears) left you deflated and hating life as you walk into work Monday. You’re wondering how the hell can you keep this season interesting.

Or, if you’re like us, neither of these events happened, and you love betting to keep things interesting.

We’ve got you covered. Below are some ideas to add a little flavor to your betting this season. Make sure you download the StakeHaul platform from the Apple App Store and Google Play to keep track of these side bets throughout the year.

Stake Spice: ?

  1. Out of two NFL players at the same position, pick which one will have the most yards, touchdowns, and/or fantasy points by week’s end or season’s end. Ex: Royce Freeman will have more rushing yards than Peyton Barber.
  2. Standard weekly fantasy football bet against your opponent. Nothing fancy, just a good old fashioned weekly bet against your biggest rival and/or best friend in the league.

Stake Spice: ??

  1. Instead of comparing two NFL players, you set your own stats for a specific player. For example, you bet your friend $20 that Russell Wilson will throw for over 4,000 yards this season.
  2. Weekly fantasy football bet against your opponent, but allow both teams to designate a captain, similar to fantasy Premier League futból. Your captain’s point total counts double towards your total score.
  3. Set aside a portion of your season long fantasy football fee to award the highest scoring team and highest scoring player per week.
  4. Season long survivor pool (NFL): Pick a team to win each week; you win, you stay in, but if that team loses, you are eliminated for the rest of the season. Also, you lose the ability to pick that same team later in the year if you’re still in the pool. Last person to survive wins the pot.
  5. Season long survivor pool (fantasy football): The league eliminates the lowest scoring team in your league each week from the pool. Last team to survive wins the pot

Stake Spice: ???

  1. 12-week reverse survivor pool (NFL): Pick a team from the twelve playoff teams the prior season to lose each week. If they lose, you stay in, but if that team wins, you lose your spot in the pool for the rest of the season, or until someone wins the pool. Also, you lose the ability to pick that same team later in the year if you’re still in the pool. Last person to survive wins the pot. Realistically, you can have this pool multiple times in a season.
  2. For the teams playing in the weekly Thursday night, Sunday night, and Monday night games, you pick one QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF, and K from the six teams playing. You can only pick one player from each team. If you have the exact same lineup as someone else, you and that person are automatically eliminated from winning that week. Scoring is the same as in your season long league. Winner of the week gets all the cash.

Stake Spice: ????

  1. Week 17 Pro Bowl, fantasy football edition: The teams from each conference join together and make up a superteam of fantasy players based on your league’s lineup settings and scoring. If there’s only one conference, then try to split up the teams evenly based on their W-L record. Top team wins the money.
  2. Once the playoffs start, you pick two QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF, and K’s. One player per team. The catch is you cannot change your lineup throughout the playoffs. Highest total score wins.
  3. Season long combination of auction style lineup setting and survivor style pool: We really like Football Guys version of this and will use them as an example. From their website…

There will be no draft. A subscriber simply chooses a team from the pre-determined values. Roster selection can be changed until the deadline passes, at which point it will be frozen. No roster moves are permitted once the contest starts.

Each team will select at least 18 and no more than 30 players, consisting of quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, kickers and defenses. You must select at least 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 PK and 1 Def/ST.

Every selection has a different cap value, but all teams must remain at or under the $250 cap. 

You may not select the same player more than once. For example: Submitting a lineup with two Alvin Kamaras will be disqualified.

Each week, your top QB, top 2 RBs, top 2 WRs, top TE, top 2 flex (either RB, WR or TE), top PK and top Def/ST will count towards your weekly total. You do not have to select who will play. You will receive the maximum score based on your roster.

Contest will be Survivor style through week 13. The league eliminates the team with the lowest score. Scores reset each week.

Stake Spice: ?????

Guillotine fantasy football league format: This will require a lot of manual scorekeeping unless you’ve heard of a site that can import your team with this style of league. You can use your current draft, lineups, and scoring in your league, or you can redraft. You also receive FAAB dollars (say $250) at the beginning of the year.

Assuming a 12-team league, the lowest scoring team after the first two weeks is eliminated.

The catch is every player from the eliminated team goes back in your league waivers for people to select on their team. Thus, your FAAB dollars can go towards waivers or towards an eliminated team’s players. The league eliminates the lowest scoring team every two weeks, and your cumulative score rolls over throughout the season.

Honestly, a guillotine style of league has everything. A standard guillotine league optimally has 17 teams to draft at the beginning of the year so that a new team is eliminated every week based on the fantasy points output of that singular week. However, you can tailor it to fit the size of your league.

The Haul – Fantasy Futból Week 4

While we wait for fantasy football to start, our fantasy PL futból team is holding steady in 2nd place, seven points back of 1st, going into the international break. We’re also tracking new fantasy PL stats to analyze our transfer decisions.

Fantasy PL Futból Week 4 Results (to see last week’s results, click here)

Week 4 Points: 50
Total Points: 235
Default League Position: 2 (no change)
Head-to-Head League Result: L
Head-to-Head League Record: 3-1
Lineup Shakeup: (Free) Ryan Sessegnon (MID – FUL; 6.4M) to Ryan Fraser (MID – BOU; 5.6M)
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (This Week): +1
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (Season – Weeks of Initial Transfer): -3
Net Point Haul/Loss from Transfers (Season – Cumulative): +7
Money in the Bank (Started): 0.5M
Money in the Bank (GW3 Transfers): 1.3M
Money in the Bank (Current): 2.1M
Squad Value Increase/Decrease From Transfers: +0.6M
Money Gained/Saved From Transfers & Available to Spend: +0.4M

The Net Point Haul/Loss (Season – Individual Weeks) is an increase or decrease in points from week to week on which the initial transfer occurred. The Cumulative stat is the increase or decrease in points from when the initial transfer occurred to the current game week, including the transfer for the most current game week.

Example: Last week, we transferred out Josh King and Ben Davies for Danny Ings and Benjamin Mendy, respectively. King and Davies combined for 10 points last week and 3 points this week. Ings and Mendy combined for 6 points last week and 13 this week. This week we transferred Sessegnon for Fraser. Sessegnon got one point and Fraser got 2 points.

Thus, last week’s transfers net us -4 points, and the one transfer from this week net us +1, for a total of -3 points week by week. However, the cumulative season long point gain so far from these transfers is +7.

Things We Like

  1. Remember how last week we said we’d captain Mo Salah until we found another player matchup too tantalizing to resist? We thought we found that and captained Sergio Aguero. Turns out, all of the top 5 teams in our default, big money league captained him as well. It still turned out to be a good decision since Aguero’s assist and bonus point earned us an extra 8 points over keeping Salah as captain. Don’t expect this to continue, as we fully expect Salah to return his form last year that set the Premier League on fire.
  2. We’re fortunate that bench players automatically get subbed in for points purposes if a starter does not play in his respective match. In our case, we started Wilfred Zaha, but unbeknownst to us, he was hurt and did not play. However, Danny Ings got subbed in and hauled us two bonus points and points from scoring a goal.
  3. It was nice to finally see Luke Shaw and Manchester United get a clean sheet. Could this be the turning point in their season?
  4. 2.1M in our bank to track players during the international break and determine who to transfer in. Diligent planning and management of our lineup and the salary cap has given us a leg up on our scoring as opposed to last year.

Things We Hate

  1. Since his goal in Week 1, Bernardo Silva has done next to nothing in terms of points. In fact, he didn’t even start this past game week. We’re not sure how much longer we can stomach starting a player if he continues to be rotated in and out of the lineup.
  2. Ditto for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Since his 12 point outburst in the first week, he scored a grand total of -2 points the last three game weeks combined, with one of them serving a suspension. It’s unlikely we’ll get rid of him since he’s one of the cheapest starting DEF in fantasy, but how can we trust to start him again?

With the international break, fantasy PL is taking a break this weekend, and will be back Saturday, September 15th.

The Haul – Fantasy Futból Week 3

On one hand, we had a poor fantasy PL futból scoring week. On the other hand, we could have transferred in Richarlison and suffered with the rest of you knee jerkers.

Fantasy PL Futból Week 3 Results (to see last week’s results, click here)

Week 3 Points: 43
Total Points: 185
Default League Position: 2 (no change)
Head-to-Head League Result: W
Head-to-Head League Record: 3-0
Lineup Shakeup: Two free transfers
Net Point Gain/Loss from Transfers: -4

Things We Like

  1. Consistent double digit returns from captaining Mo Salah. Remember people, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Salah has scored or assisted in all three matches so far, and we’d be hard pressed to take the captain label off him unless we see a matchup too tantalizing to resist for one of our other players.
  2. Swapped out Ben Davies (DEF – TOT) for Benjamin Mendy (DEF – MC). While Mendy did not get a clean sheet this week, this swap was a net gain of three points. In fact, Davies didn’t even start this past week against Manchester United, making way for Danny Rose. If Tottenham is going to rotate their fullbacks like this, even when Rose has been rusty for quite some time, then it’ll be awhile before we transfer Tottenham defenders back in.

Things We Hate

  1. Swapped out Josh King (FWD – BOU) for Danny Ings (FWD – SOU). This caused us a net loss of seven points since King scored a goal off a penalty kick. What’s more upsetting than the loss of points is the transfer itself. For example, we were looking to swap out one of our lower performing MIDs because all three of our bench players were projected to miss their match this past week. However, we didn’t expect Sessegnon (MID – FUL) to be benched.
  2. Continued starting of Jordan Pickford (EVE) as our goalie. He hasn’t returned one clean sheet at all this year despite the easy fixtures. While we can’t place the blame squarely on Pickford since his defense in front of him is trash, we can’t envision keeping Pickford for much longer.

Who will we transfer in for the EPL matches in Game Week 4?
