Really had no idea what to do this week. Absolutely none. I really didn’t want Van Persie. I think he is overvalued, a bit out-of-form (due to fatigue in my opinion), and will be rotated a ton down the stretch. Yet, I have to balance my needs and desires with the reality of my money league. I currently sit 52 points up on second and 118 on third; I need to ensure my moves are prudent and protect my lead. In the end, this pushed me to RVP as both chasers have Van Persie and will be certain to captain him. Thus, it was Van Persie in, but whom to drop?
And so it begins, the barren fantasy wasteland known as Gameweek 29. Fantasy managers around the world are picking through scraps as forty percent of the league takes an FA Cup-induced EPL holiday. The majority won’t field starting X’s much less starting XI’s and those that do create vulnerabilities to the upcoming double gameweek bonanzas, whenever they begin. Oh what a week to be a dedicated FPL gaffer!
