In Gameweek 35+, a raft of differentials topped the scoring charts in one of the most polarising sets of Fantasy Premier League matches for some time.
It seemed fitting that this episode’s line-up features both the haves and have-nots.
Andy and Az are able to luxuriate in their Michail Antonio (£7.0m) haul following the West Ham differential’s four-goal heroics. Meanwhile, Antonio-less Joe is forced to settle for FPL crumbs, like a save point from Watford stopper Ben Foster (£4.9m).
In a low-scoring week for many, sometimes the best pick-me-up is to move onto to the next Gameweek and the transfers and plans ahead. Chief among their topics for Gameweek 36+ is the merits of bringing in Southampton forward Danny Ings (£7.5m). The former Liverpool striker is in sensational form and at last has the fixtures to match, with Brighton’s porous defence next in his sights.
Our trio also tries to play Pep roulette as they attempt to second-guess the line up of a Manchester City outfit that has one eye on the FA Cup. Predicting the best scorers is only half the battle; finding the players who will earn the most minutes is perhaps the bigger challenge.
Some managers, such as Az and Joe, still have chips to play. But they are not happy having to use them amid rotation fears and in a single Gameweek. Could Gameweek 36+ be the week Az jettisons his Free Hit and Joe deploys his Bench Boost?
Elsewhere, there are clean sheets to mull over and Joe takes his turn to pick a differential, after mixed results recently. Ironically, Antonio turned out to be a great shout for him shortly after the restart.
Finally, there are transfers to consider and captains to choose. Will Gameweek 36+ be another collection of matches to see widely differing results?
