The Stock Check – Wednesday

A frustrating evening for Gareth Bale and Fantasy managers as Spurs and Chelsea play out a stalemate at the Bridge with the goals shared amongst unlikely differentials. Here’s the Stock Check from Wednesday’s Gameweek climax.

On the Up

Oscar
The young Brazilian was identified as our headline act in our Differentials article prior to the Gameweek deadline and duly delivered. Tonight’s tap in was his third goal in four games for Oscar, who has started five of the last six league outings. Owned by under 2% of Fantasy Premier League managers, we picked him this week out as a possible replacement for the injured Michu over the final two matches and, with tonight’s returns, many could now look in his direction.

Emmanuel Adebayor
The Togo striker put on a superb showing, earning goal and assist returns for the second time in his last four starts. Adebayor has endured a hugely disappointing season back in Spurs colours and has in no way justified his lofty FPL price tag. His end of season form is, however, looking strong and he could yet be considered as a potential differential for the final two fixtures by those with cash to spare up top.

Going Down

Eden Hazard
While Juan Mata kept ticking over and came out of the double Gameweek with an assist, his fellow playmaker was given just 72 minutes to earn returns for his investors and come up short. Hazard’s failure was compounded by Oscar’s profits and the Belgian’s owners will now have to hope for consecutive starts over the final two fixtures and a rapid turnaround in fortunes.

Jermain Defoe
Dropped to the bench after an ineffective display against Southampton, Adebayor’s performance will surely make a huge dent in Defoe’s prospects over the remaining fixtures and kill off any thoughts that the England striker could be an effective differential for the season climax.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

      Have finished Top of a Head to Head League and we head into semi finals week 37.

      Anyone know if it's 1 v 4 and 2 v 3 or is it random??

          Next season is going to be awesome isn't it? New manager at Utd and Chelsea, City bound to spend ridiculous money, Bale being linked with the other top teams even Arsenal might finally start spending some money....

          Plenty to look forward to 😀

            I'm looking forward to the month or so before the season starts when my fantasy team looks so full of promise, it's a glorious time before it all comes crashing down around my ears!

            I'm looking forward to a good influx of new strikers...Quite a few teams struggling in that dept after a season of mainly midfield stars in the PL....

                  Think Chelsea will play a strong team vs Villa for sure. Benfica have a league decider vs Porto this weekend so neither team will be resting much imo. Top 4 is very important & Villa have found some form.

                            Europa League is more important to Rafa's CV. Frankly, he couldn't give a toss about whether Chelsea qualify for the CL next season or not.

                                                Looks like you could afford Yaya and Michu to Cout and Fellaini for -4. Then plan on Berb to Sturridge for GW 38.

                                                    Like Cout but Fellaini has frustrated me senseless this season.

                                                      Me too, but a decent fixture this GW, and a lack of good alternatives in that price range. Plus his stats have been improving lately, explosion imminent. But if you prefer, can you afford Lampard instead?

                                                    Been sat at OT week in, week out wondering why we persevere with an over-weight, over-hyped ego. His contribution to open play is not good enough for someone on some of the highest wages at OT. He clearly does not accept playing second fiddle to RvP who has proved his value both in terms of goals and his contribution to games. We need players who want to be there and work hard. Let him go.
