What an international break! Draft Fantasy have confirmed a World Cup 2018 draft game, England won two thrilling matches with clean sheets and erm, six chair challenge is back in X Factor!
Thank God FPL GW8 is upon us. Hopefully we can carry on our decent run of streaming tips. Since GW 3 the tips average 14.8 points a week or 4.93 per player.
Gameweeks after international breaks often see some changes due to long flights back from South America, little niggles or managers just lying about injuries, so make sure you keep across all managers press conferences before you make any transfers, waivers, free agency moves. The positives to this often odd week is that it gives us chance to find some obscure streaming picks.
DEFENDER: Maguire, Leicester. (WBA H)
Leicesters league position is very deceptive and if we take away the games against the top 6. Leicester have only conceded once in 3 matches. Maguire also provides attacking returns (1G 2A 4BP)
The two attacking picks both play for the top 3, the first time I’ve tipped from the big teams but hopefully the lack of game time for the following two players has seen them slip into free agency in most leagues.
MIDFIELD: B Silva, Man City. (STO A)
Slight risk in this pick as Silva has struggled with the Guardiola tombola so far, but fresh from overhauling Switzerland to help Portugal to Russia 2018, Bernardo Silva could get his City career up and running at home to an increasingly flakey Stoke team.
FORWARD: Batshuayi, Chelsea. (CRY)
Another risk as there’s a chance Morata may come back but with Roma in midweek this seems unlikely. Batshuayi doesn’t seem to have Conte’s complete trust but he has been a flat track bully this season. (4 goals in 2 matches v Qarabag and Notts Forest) and tracks don’t get much flatter than Crystal Palace – 8 players have scored 10 or points v Palace already this season.
Good luck on the first week back, make sure you watch the press conferences on Friday and there will be more streaming tips on Monday.
