Gameweek 16 in Review

A bit of a mixed bag this week. I’ve had final exams to distract me from my one true priority, the downwards spiral of my team. On top of that, my computer was finally brought to its knees after eight years of loyal service. This week was a good one in fantasy though, with 65 points scored I have risen up to rank 370k, which looked a lot better before Aubameyang hauled but a green is a green. Let’s take a look at my players and decide how to proceed.

Goalkeepers

Paulo Gazzaniga: 6 points

Finally, a clean! It never really looked in doubt, as Burnley truly have an awful record against the big six, at home and away. Let’s hope this trend continues.

Michael McGovern: 0 points

Didn’t play.

Defenders

John Lundstram: 2 points

The fifth consecutive blank from Lord Lundstram. Perhaps its time to question whether he should start every week. Currently I think there is a bit too much risk if he hauls, but if his ownership drops a little I might consider it.

Caglar Soyuncu: 2 points

Unlucky not to clean, he played immensely as per usual. I’m starting to notice a trend that only 2/3 of my Leicester assets can haul in any given gameweek, lets see if this continues. I hope it does against City if we’re being honest.

Diego Rico: 1 point

Ah, the duality of man. One week hes hauling the other week hes a one point merchant. A very safe bench option but with the long term injury to Nathan Ake I think it truly will be impossible for Bournemouth to ever keep a clean sheet.

Trent-Alexander Arnold: 1 point

Truly infuriating. Soon enough, Klopp’s hair will fall out and his transformation of fraudulence will be complete. He rested Trent, then was forced to play him, too late to register the clean sheet of course. This also prevents Trent from being safe from rotation in the future. I’ll be shipping after Watford, not convinced with his value as an asset this year.

Jetro Willems: 2 points

It continues! When he’s on my bench, he hauls. When he makes his way onto the pitch, he blanks. I’ve had it with this wasteman but I have bigger fish to fry at the moment.

Midfielders

Sadio Mane: 0 points

Okay, i’ll be the first to admit, this was a dumb move to make. He had just played while Salah rested, so it was probable that the inverse would happen, and it did. I was just too full of rage to act rationally. Lets just hope Salah doesn’t go off like a rocket right after I ship him again.

Kevin de Bruyne: 1 point

The title race is over. This was yet another toothless display. It would have been nice to be awarded one of the numerous handballs, but we really cannot hide behind that. It’s an issue of mentality now at City, and Kevin is the only one who looks like he cares. I have no interest in any other city player whatsoever.

James Maddison: 9 points

The madman! Lock him up, he’s criminally insane. Leicester changed up their formation, playing with two strikers up top and Maddo in a more natural CAM position, and it really set him free. He provided two assists on the day and looked good for a few more. Lets hope to see more of this formation rather than the more traditional 4-3-3.

Heung-Min Son: 12 points

Four weeks of Sonshine, 3 10+ point hauls. This man is electric. He scored the certain goal of the season, casually dribbling past the entire Burnley squad in one go. He has been unleashed under Jose and I should probably start captaining the man.

Mason Mount: 2 points

Yuck. Chelsea have not looked very good recently, and this was yet another disappointing result. Frank also mentioned he planned on doing some midfield rotation over the Christmas period, so I think there’s only room for one Mason in my team.

Forwards

Tammy Abraham: 2 points

Another great transfer, since the outgoing Jimenez scored 5, leaving me with a net score of -16 from my moves this week. Like I said, Chelsea are in a state, and Tammy is the only one worth keeping in my opinion. Let’s hope he does some damage to the shambolic Cherries backline.

Jamie Vardy (C): 13 points

Captain Fantastic! Jezza was back at his best once again, giving me absolutely no reason to take the armband off him, especially against a side as dire as Norwich. I’ve almost run out of things to say about this man.

Mason Mount: 0 points

Unfortunately didn’t play, can’t really slate Ole for this one though.
