One of the biggest reasons Donald Trump has yet to face serious repercussions over his cretinous behaviour is the deluge of information that distracts people from his actions day in day out.
Now I know your fantasy teams are much more important than the future of the world but the same deluge of information and chat can have the same effect on your decisions. A recent prime example of this has been the chat about Romelu Lukaku.
All the noise about Lukaku will tell you he’s in bad form, he hasn’t scored for 7 matches and that he’s a flat track bully not worth the money that Manchester United paid for him.
Is any of that relevant to FPL? Does it make sense that he has been sold by nearly 90,000 people already this game week?
The answer is no. Lukaku has blanked in 2 of his last 4 matches both away at Liverpool and Chelsea, hardly prime FPL fixtures. In the other 2 games he has an assist in each for two 5 point hauls. Put it this way if Lukaku had scored and been booked in 2 of his last 4 games would you consider him in poor form FPL wise? Is Lukaku a flat track bully? Maybe? Most strikers are. But in FPL terms who cares? You don’t get more points for goals against Chelsea. And if you own Lukaku there are some flat tracks and a returning Paul Pogba on the horizon.
So when you’re watching and reading about football this week remember to filter out what’s relevant for your fantasy team.
If you’re not lucky enough to own Lukaku see below for GW12 streaming tips.
Defender: Ben Mee, Burnley (SWA H) Burnley’s defenders are still available in many leagues, Ward is the highest owned at only 28%, any of the Burnley back 4 are a viable pick but Mee is only in 1 in 7 leagues currently and looks good to collect a 6th clean sheet in 9 matches against a powderpuff Swansea side heavily reliant on the youngsters up front.
Midfield: Anthony Knockaert, Brighton (STO H)
Initially overshadowed by Gross Knockaert is slowly showing the form that made him a cut above in the Championship. A great differential against a mixed bag of a Stoke team, Knockeart also extends FPL interest into Monday night football.
Forward: Callum Wilson, Bournemouth (HUD H) Wilson is back from injury and with Defoe and King struggling has a great chance to make his mark against a Huddersfield side who look to be regressing back to the mean. Anyone who had Wilson way back in GW3 of 2015 will vouch for his explosive potential.
