Matchday Surgery

The Saturday Surgery

This is no ordinary Saturday but, while a Wembley showpiece and the offering of just a single Premier League match provide distractions, we can’t allow ourselves to waver ahead of the penultimate Fantasy deadline of the season.

There is still much at stake throughout the mini-leagues and, indeed, at the very top of the Fantasy Premier League and Sky Sports standings. Wrestling with doubts, suspensions and the continued threat of chop and change amongst the Chelsea and City lineups, Gameweek 37 is far from routine.

As always, we’ve prepared a suite of articles offer some assistance, including last night’s Scout Picks and Differentials. The team news, together with our take on the Gameweek lineups can be found here, while this week’s ScoutCast also has a view on what may lie ahead.

Our Matchday Surgery chatroom is now open for those who require more immediate feedback. The Dugout Discussion on today’s single league match will follow around 12.30, with the Pre-match Preamble stripping off for its warm-up as this is typed.

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

    Bench maloney or kone? Or is it a 50/50. Im thinking bench kone because maloney is on pens?

    Other question is the popular question today. Captain rvp, bale or wally. Im leaning towards Rvp.... not sure at all though.

      It's all a bit mad. People are swapping Chelsea for Chelsea. I can't see the reasoning.

    I've done some real detective work in my ML, just wanna hear if you guys agree with my feeling here:

    My rival had 0.2 in bank before this round. Suddenly he now did two transfers, leaving him with 2.8.

    This is the team: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/814905/event-history/36/

    He bought RVP at 13.0, meaning he should now get 13.3 from him.

    Selling RVP for Sturridge leaves him with 6.2. Plus his 0.2 = 6.4. Buying Walcott (9.1) for Sissoko (5.5) uses 3.6 out of that, leaving him with 2.8. Which is what he has.

    Right?

    Am I reasoned here?

        Actually i've just captained Bale. My logic is mini league based- my main rival can afford Bale but not RVP so at least if we both captain Bale, RVP will do his thing and it won't affect the main points from (c)
