With the transfer window now over, all the attention would once again shift to the Premier League and it is time for the Fantasy Premier League managers to change adjust their team according to the transfers made by the clubs and gear up for the game. This weekend also promises a lot of actions with some very important matches like Manchester City versus Liverpool and Newcastle against Chelsea. The match of Tottenham against West Brom is also important prom the point of view of both the clubs. Some of the important factors that the Fantasy Premier League managers should keep in mind this weekend are as follows.
It is not time to include the new players recklessly
Many clubs have brought in new players in the transfer market with QPR and Newcastle going in for the maximum numbers. This would change the role of the existing players a bit and some of the new players would fit in the place of the existing players. But it is not time to include the players recklessly as some of the players would not prove to be fruitful from the Fantasy Premier League point of view. So it is best to wait and watch for some and then draw some conclusion on the new players.
Mata, Walcott the most important players
Both of their teams are in much troubled waters, but then these two people are proving to be the knights in shining armour for Chelsea and Arsenal respectively. They are solely carrying their teams forward on their own shoulders and often their teams are being saved of humiliation because of them. While Walcott has already accumulated 129 points, Mata has a staggering 151 points under his name. If things go as it is now going, then both the players are bound to score more goals for their clubs in near future and be absolute Fantasy Premier League assets. So whatever you do, do not forget to include them in your team and reap the harvests.
Holtby looking very promising
Spurs has perhaps secured the best deal of the transfer window with Lewis Holtby joining the club from Germany. This has happened after Sandro became injured and was set to miss a large part of the season. If morning shows the day the pretty exciting things are to come from this player who played for just twenty minutes for his team against Norwich. He has an irresistible record of making assists back in his homeland in Germany and with ample game time, courtesy injury of Sandro, he can prove to be a vital player for his team and also a Fantasy Premier League prospect. Priced at £7.5m, he can be worth all the money and for managers who are willing to take a risk should think of investing in him.
The waste of Demba Ba
He was such a brilliant Fantasy Premier League asset when he played for Newcastle where he was the lone striker of the team and the team mainly centred on him. Then he decided to shift to Chelsea where he has to fight for the striker’s place with an out of form Torres, who also happens to have a special place in manager Rafa Benitez’s heart. This has reduced his value immensely as a Fantasy Premier League prospect and this fact was highlighted when his price dropped, although marginally. Chelsea does not play with a formation that has place for two strikers and thus one of the lead strikers must sit on the bench. Demba Ba now looks set to sit more on the bench than his counterpart and this should trigger his transfer outs by many managers. Thus if he is still in your team, it is high time to transfer him out and look for an adequate replacement.
