Fantasy Football – GW8

After two big gameweeks in a row, we’ve come back down to earth with a bump.

Payet and Hazard (c) both got us an assist, whilst De Bruyne found the net. Other than that, not a single player did a thing.

A total of 39 points puts Team Leftbacks below the average of 46. We dropped 180 000 places which is not great – but not a train smash. We find ourselves around the 320,000th place mark out of over 3.2 million people which we’re happy with, but we want to climb more.



This week is an easy decision – Cullum Wilson got injured on Saturday and will be out for a minimum of 6 months. So we’ve taken him out before his value drops.


With over 3 million in the bank, there were a few options to us, but with six goals this season and 5 in his last four, Jamie Vardy seems like a great replacement. He also faces Norwich, Southampton, Palace, WBA, Watford and Newcastle in his next six fixtures which is great.



Aguero versus Newcastle. Yes, one goal and an assist in seven games is not great, but we all know he’ll be firing very soon, and we want him as captain when he does. Kevin de Bruyne will be vice captain
