Things We Learned in GW35

If your mini-league is anything like ours, the 14-game GW35 likely set up your mini-table for the final 30 matches (or 3 GWs) for the season. Even though the matchups for the bloated GW32 were better on paper, there were some outstanding scores in GW35.

As we await the Friday start to GW36, here’s a list of what we learned from GW35 to prepare us for the stretch run:

  • Arsenal’s forwards (Aubameyang and Lacazette) will continue to score decent points, despite sharing starts and minutes.

  • Your Cherries are now entirely unownable, mostly due to their unpredictability.

  • The matchups aren’t great, but Chris Wood’s last four are outstanding (5-11-13-5).

  • Eden Hazard is still relevant, despite Chelsea’s inconsistency.

  • With Everton’s win over United, your Toffees’ defenders might still be relevant.

  • All any Fulham players needed was to remove the pressure of being relegated. Now that it’s statistically certain, they are ready to perform.

  • It’s a shame Karlan Grant is due to go right back down to the Championship. He’s settling into the Premier League very nicely now for Huddersfield.

  • You still want Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans, with maybe Harvey Barnes as a worthy vote for honorable mention.

  • If you stopped owning three Liverpool players during the double gameweek portion of the season, you should change that now.

  • No one will judge you if you own 3 City players for the stretch run, regardless of matchup, especially the usual ones (i.e. Ederson, Sterling, Aguero, etc.).

  • You would be best served to send Pogba out, but Marcus Rashford is still trying really hard.

  • It’s April/May, which means it’s Ayoze Perez’s time to shine. Don’t sleep on Matt Ritchie either.

  • Shane Long’s last three makes him your choice Saints’ defender as long as Southampton is still working to stay up.

  • One Spurs’ midfielder is a good option right now, whether it be Son, Eriksen, or Dele (and probably in this order).

  • How happy was Dave that his Andre Gray prediction worked out pretty well?

  • Wolves are just as unpredictable now as they have been all season. Why transfer your token Wolves out now?
