The Watchlist – Gameweek 12

llama Fantasy Football Tips, Watchlist 0 Comments

WL - GW12

Real football begins again this week, and we have the exciting prospect of three matches in quick succession on the horizon. With rotation and injury concerns sure to surface, this is the time for our Fantasy Football squads to step into gear. Read on to see which players ATFPL recommend as your potential next move;

The Forwards

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Suarez A A
2) Aguero A A
3) Rooney A B
4) Remy B B
5) Sturridge B A
6) Giroud B A
7) Benteke C A
8) Lambert A C

Suarez maintains his spot as the number one forward on the Watchlist with form and fixtures on his side.With the Arsenal game behind him, Rooney’s fixtures improve slightly but the immediate two fixtures are away. The big fall this week is Daniel Sturridge whose form is beginning a downward trend – it may be time for those with extra transfer to consider moving on. Across the city Lukaku falls out of favour with poor form and average fixtures while Rickie Lambert joins the list with form on his side – form over fixtures, fixtures over form, picking Lambert will depend on your view of that conundrum.

The Midfielders

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Ramsey A A
2) Hazard A A
3) Ozil A A
4) Sessegnon B B
5) Yaya Toure C A
6) Oscar C A
7) Cabaye B B
8) Morrison B C

It’s tight at the top, but Ramsey’s price keeps him above Hazard. Sessegnon flies up our rankings with a goal against Chelsea showing that both he and West Brom have no need to fear anyone. Yaya and Oscar are just about staying on the list with strong fixtures on both their horizons, while new boy Cabaye has decent form and fixtures in a resurgent Newcastle team. Ravel Morrison comes in as an in-form budget option in midfield.

The Defenders

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Koscielny A A
2) McAuley A B
3) Terry C A
4) Jagielka A C
5) Johnson B B
6) Dawson A C

A big shake-up in the defender rankings as Laurent Koscielny takes top spot, Arsenal have kept things tight at the back and have three home games to continue their run. Team Mate, Per Mertesacker is also a viable option, only missing the last game through illness. McAuley is another new boy whose fixtures and attacking ability see him promote himself as a top choice. Toure falls out the list for fellow Liverpool defender Johnson whose overcome injury and is surely nailed on to start. The Spurs defence has been resolute, but the question is whether it can maintain his with fixtures falling against them.

The Goalkeepers

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Szczesny A A
2) Mignolet C B
3) Jaaskelainen A C
4) Boruc C C

Like his teammate, Szczesny jumps to the top of our list with form and fixtures firmly on his side. Southampton have struggled for clean sheets recently and with games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City in the next three – we’re not confident things are going to turn around too quickly.
