After swearing off playing the remaining matches this season a couple weeks ago, the lure of fantasy Premier League drew me back in. I had just recorded one of my lowest scores of the season, posting just north of 50 points in a week where many people were scoring in triple digits. That score dragged me outside the top 10,000 in the global rankings, the lowest I've ever been at this stage of the season in 8 years of playing.
Thankfully, I couldn't resist the temptation of tinkering with my team and in the last couple weeks have posted some really good scores that have taken me back up to the 4,000 mark. While not the result I had hoped for at the beginning of the season, I would be very happy if I was able to reach the top 1,000, which I feel is a realistic goal with two double weeks remaining. I'll just have to pick the right players. Easy enough, right?
Before we get to the next double in Week 34, though, we've got a full slate of action this weekend and a limited schedule in Week 33 to contend with. Here's the team I settled on for Week 32:
Cresswell, Wollscheid, Bertrand
Sigurdsson, Henderson, Coutinho, Mane
Remy, Kane, Pelle
I'm hopeful of another strong outing from my team this weekend, but as always a bit leery of some of the inconsistent players in my lineup. Who did you wind up with this weekend? What are your end-of-season goals? Let's chat!
