Our FPL fantasy futból squad led the league in points in Week 12 and made up twenty points on first place. We’re feeling good going into the international break.

Things We Like
- We made a great transfer for the second week in a row. James Maddison’s fantasy performance left much to be desired before he picked up an injury last week. Enter Felipe Anderson. Frankly, we made this move because West Ham as a whole have an easy schedule up to Week 20 and he scored two goals in the last match. This transfer netted us nine points thanks to a goal and two bonus points.
- Despite facing Manchester City, Anthony Martial scored another goal. While this had an adverse effect on Bejamin Mendy’s point haul, we’re happy that Martial scored. This gives us even more confidence to keep Martial in our squad for the foreseeable future.
- Our FPL lineup has a lot of the same players as the first place squad. Thankfully, we outscored first place by twenty points largely due to the hauls from Felipe Anderson, Anthony Martial, and Marcos Alonso.
Things We Hate
- Not much to hate this week, short of being Nostradamus. Joe Hart, our backup goalie on Burnley, faced a Leicester City side in the first Leicester home game since their chairman died in his tragic helicopter accident. Certainly, we expected Leicester to come out inspired and score at least one goal. On the flip side, Ben Foster faced off against one of the lowest scoring Premier League teams in Huddersfield Town. Sure, starting Foster cost us seven points, but it’s hard to imagine anyone starting Hart over Foster under those circumstances.
After twelve game weeks, we are comfortably in 2nd place and 34 points behind 1st. Our squad is in great position to make a run at 1st place, especially since we still have our wildcard chip.
Barring injuries, we plan to hold on to our wildcard for as long as possible. However, our squad picked up a few knocks, so we’re hoping the upcoming two week international break will help.
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.
