A huge penultimate week with almost all sides playing twice, particularly those at the top so little chance of players being rotated out then … shame nobody told the real world managers. A particular big thank you to Conte for resting my captain Cahill on Monday, for example. And Kyle Walker – 6 minutes over 2 matches? Ah, well, there’s always next season.
But you’re not here to read about my inability to pick a high scoring team – you’re here to read about other people’s inability to pick a high enough scoring team … when it really mattered. Because this was the week it really did matter; do well and you’re in the head to head final week; do not so well and you finish 3rd, which is a great achievement, but not the top 2. So let’s get to it:
Average Score: 137.67 (3 participants) – overall competition average 81
Highest Score: 152 – overall competition high score 223 (!!!!)
Lowest Surviving Score: 143
Eliminated this week:
With 118 points: When Ken’s Fishing (Ian Poole)
Oh, after being the highest placed survivor for quite a while, Ian goes at the second last. And check out that gameweek rank.
Sanchez : Captain 27=54
Kane : 31
No other player scored double figures – best of the rest was Capoue with 9.
Gameweek Rank: 476,281 (out of 4,501,614).
Safe this week:
With 143 points:
Off to Okavanga (Derek Fabb)
Top scorer this week with 152 points : Forza Watford (Tom Guzik) for the 2nd week in a row.
Sanchez : Arsenal C 27=54
Jesus : Man City 19
De Bruyne : Man City 15
Bench Boost – where all of your bench players score (you get 1 of these) yielded 23 points.
Gameweek Rank: 63,656
Remaining Teams – 2. It’s head to head on Sunday. And you get nothing for second place.*
And, just so you know, here they are:
|Forza Watford||Tom Guzik|
|Off to Okavanga||Derek Fabb|
Here is the sheet:
*Actually, you get nothing for winning the thing either but, you know.
