The Fantasy Football Watchlist – Gameweek 16

llama Fantasy Football Tips, Watchlist 0 Comments


WL - GW16A disappointing end to the Gameweek as the Watchlist is knocked out of the AT50Quid Cup by a Chico goal. But the Watchlist is about looking forward and putting the past behind us, unless we’re looking at the form of our players. So with that in mind, who are the players whose form and fixtures should put them firmly in your squads?

The Forwards

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Suarez  12.5  20.10
1) Aguero  7  57.03
3) Lukaku  7.2  24.14
4) Rooney  5.8  9.91
5) Gouffran  5  5.97
6) Giroud  3.8  13.8
7) Long  5.2  2.78
8) Hooper  4.8  5.32

No-one has better fixtures than Aguero (and the rest of his team-mates), while Suarez is miles ahead as the form player.
Lukaku stays above Rooney for form and fixtures, while Giroud offers fixtures but form escapes him. Goufran and Hooper offer intriguing options with form and average fixtures on their side.

The Midfielders

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Hazard  7.8  35.47
2) Lampard  7.5  35.47
3) Yaya Toure  6.2  57.03
4) Ozil  7.4  13.80
5) Oviedo  6.8  24.14
6) Ramsey  5.8  13.80
7) Fer  6.8  5.32
8) Shelvey  6  -5.99

Hazard, Lampard and Yaya have the form and the fixtures. Oviedo provides us with a cut price option at 4.4 with strong fixtures and even better form, 2 goals and an assist in his 3 games for Everton make him a prime target for investment.

The Defenders

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Coleman  6  16.72
2) Zabaleta  5.8  14.43
3) Bassong  3.5  4.16
4) Evra  4.2  1.50
5) Terry  4.5  -6.38
6) Mertesacker  5  -13.43
7) Gabbidon  6  -35.24

Everton, Manchester City and Norwich are your source of strong defensive fixtures over the festive period. Crystal Palace’s defensive has provided recent returns, but can they sustain that with away trips to Chelsea and Manchester City in the next 4 – the Watchlist thinks not. Meanwhile Arsenal’s defence has a tough matchup against Manchester City this weekend but follows that up with simpler fixtures.

The Goalkeepers

Rank/Name Form Fixtures
1) Howard  4.5  16.72
2) Ruddy  5  4.16
3) Pantilmon  3.8  14.43
4) Jaaskelainen  3.2  1.12

Is this the end for Mignolet? 2 decent fixtures followed by Manchester City and Chelsea away. Luckily for us the other half of the Merseyside offers us respite, while we find a budget City goalkeeper in Pantilmon.
