GW10 Allsvenskan Fantasy – Ones to Watch

The summer break was finally over and GW9 saw the return of fans to the stadium. There were only two clean sheets and, as a result, I’ve leaned towards strikers bearing in mind some managers are planning to use the Attack! Attack! chip. I’ve selected four overlooked players with the potential to register returns soon and one “popular” striker who can deliver big points.

Carl Johansson (5.9)

The former Falkenbergs centre-back was one of the most important signings of IFK Göteborg’s winter market and will arguably be instrumental in building a solid defensive unit. He may have played only one league game for his team, but his influence was evident throughout the match against Elfsborg on Monday. He completed 5 recoveries and was given one defensive bonus point due to his 9 CBIs. It’s worth noting he was among the top defenders for CBIs last season and his aerial threat is one to consider. He scored 3 goals last season. Only Djurgårdens have kept more clean sheets than IFK Göteborg. He faces a trip to Östersunds FK, a side that has scored in every home game so far this season, but that trend might short-lived. The Blåvitt have conceded only 2 big chances in their last four Allsvenskan games. Owned by only 1.3% of managers, he’s an enticing differential.

Darijan Bojanic (8.8)

The Hammarby midfielder has been a shadow of his former self since last season, but the underlying stats suggest he’s about to rediscover some form. He’s delivered 2 assists in his last 4 games and has given 12 key passes during the same period. What’s more, he seems to be playing a slightly more advanced role. He should have converted that big chance missed against Halmstads last Sunday. Hammarby haven’t exactly been convincing of late, but if they are to find some attacking fluency, Bojanic will be key. He has created 16 chances in his last 5 Allsvenskan games. With an ownership of just 1.1%, he can reward managers who opt to be different with attacking returns and bonus points. 

Erdal Rakip (5.7)

The absence of Anders Christensen (12.2) has somehow boosted the prospects of Rakip, who has ‘taken his chance’ adopting a more offensive role. In the meantime, he has scored 1 goal and given 1 assist having accumulated 2 defensive bonus points and 2 offensive ones. He’s had 11 shots since he replaced the injured Christensen in the game against Elfsborg and takes some corners for now. Next up is a game against a Sirius side that has conceded 38 shots in the box in their last 4 Allsvenskan games. 

Nicolás Stefanelli (7.8)

The Argentinian striker has been one of the promising players from AIK for a while and it is no wonder because his underlying stats point to an imminent surge in form.  He has had 15 shots in the past 4 gameweeks and has scored 2 goals and given 1 fantasy assist during the same period. It’s worth noting that his main appeal is not the accumulated quantity of shots, but rather his superb positioning in the box. Hence he gets high-quality chances, which suggests he’s due more goals. Stefanelli now has 5 attacking returns, all of which have come at home. Notably, 3 of his next 4 fixtures are home encounters. Varbergs BoIS, AIK’s next opponents, have struggled in defence all season having kept only one clean sheet. 

Jacob Bergström (6.4)

A player that has gone under the radar this season is Jacob Bergström. While he may only have 4 attacking returns so far, his statistics suggest he remains a major goal threat. It is a similar case to that of Stefanelli: Bergström’s positioning in the box highlights his instinct for goals. Mjällby’s next opponent, Norrköping, are motivated after defeating reigning champions, Mälmo FF, last Saturday. However, Peking have shown some defensive frailties this season and they won’t count with centre-back Marco Lund (5.6). No team-mate has had more shots and big chances this season. Bergström sits in just 7.1 % of squads, which suggests he can be that overlooked third striker in the game.

    Some interesting selections. I am looking to remove E. Larson at MFF as he now struggles with rotation. Gustafsson is an option, and I am also looking forward to the pricing of Wendt when he joins. Currently, I am looking at an AIK defender. Otieno is popular, but with transfer rumours and Lustig and Kahl back, that is perhaps too risky.

      Wendt is an interesting prospect. I’m confident Göteborg will improve defensively. Otieno has been a standout player this season. Good pick!

        Thanks. I went Otieno. Α gambe, I know, but hopefully it will pay off.

    Gerardo with the risk of players been sold, Good options. It's difficult to have a stable lineup. I think Stefanelli - Good shout.
    He is really good on defense.-

    Different Position : MID
    I really Like Ylatupa - From AIK : Cheaper than Stefanelli - 14.8%
    Top of Bonus Points :7
    2rd on Crosses
    1st on KeyPasses
    1st on Big Chances Created

    My 5 cents.

    1. Eytexi

      I also like Ylatupa, but certainly as a double-up with Stefanelli rather than an alternative. I currently have Hussein in my midfield and, although I'll be benching him this week, think he's a nice differential also.

    2. Gerardo7

      Ylatupa offers value for sure. Even though he’s at risk of leaving the pitch early, he’s got good numbers as you’ve shown to us. I agree with James: a double up on attack is justified given AIK have 3 home fixtures. They are very strong at home.

    Cheers man, some good picks in here. Stefanelli is certainly a must for me and has been for a while now. Hoping holding AC can pay off for me today - looking to claw a little closer to top spot.

    1. Gerardo7

      Yes, I agree. Stefanelli is due some goals. I even took a hit to get him ahead of GW10. Not many will have AC and he has plum fixtures coming up. He’s a differential among top managers atm. Hope you mal that 1st place, mate. You deserve it!

      Congrats with OR1 (for now)! I'm coming for you tomorrow hopefully, although I think you might have the upper hand with an extra player.

        Cheers mate, I think this is night number 3 at the top but yet to hold it at the end of a runde. Didn't realise it was you in 2nd until I just went looking for you - fair play man, and huge congrats!

        That said, I'd agree I've got you beaten this week (at least, I'd like to think the odds are in my favour), but plenty of time to go. Glad to have WC & AttackAttack on you, gives me a little reassurance.

        1. Niemi

          Yup. I've definitely blown my chips. I'm pretty realistic about this, I'm not gonna stay at the very top. Gone for OR1 while I'm there. Not gonna last!

    Hey everyone, wondering if now is a good time to wildcard. I'm very much a casual player but doing ok at 3k despite not paying very much attention.

    Forward line is an absolute state and I don't know what's going on with Adegbenro. I also want to find a way to get more Malmo in!

    Team is:

    Jansson, Påhlsson

    Larsson, Knudsen, Strand, Witry, Jean Carlos

    Berg ,Chilufya, Eriksson, Ludwigson, Collander

    Ndione, Adegbenro, Turgott

    Thanks and good luck and have fun this GW!
