The 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia & New Zealand is complete. As expected, I suffered some surprises and learned some lessons:
- Predicted starters at Rotowire let me down. Four did not play at all (including both keepers!), and two made only late appearances. I’m taking a hit before round-2 to try to get 11 starters into my roster, but my bench will still be burning for at least another round.
- Either Japan is really good or else Zambia is weak. I am betting on a strong Spanish side against Zambia, especially since Spain will want to exceed Japan’s goal-difference. So in come two more Spanish players (Abelleira and Carmona) who produced in Round-1. This puts me at the max for Spain.
- Our fantasy format’s “wish-list” is a useful tool. I can load it up for free (no transfers or budget needed). This gives me a pool of players from which I can pull into my actual roster.
- The She-Plays teams lists show all points earned by the players from any one country. I am looking at target (strong) countries and filling my wish-list with prospects to be sorted later.
The deadline is a full hour before the next kickoff, so get your transfers and bench-sorting saved early. Good luck!
