(This week is different to the others!)
With Christmas almost upon us, gameweeks are starting to come along thick and fast and this week is the perfect example. GW 15 (just finished), 16 & 17 are being played across just 7 days for our Premier League clubs this year, and we expect this will challenge most Fantasy Football managers – as well as the players themselves of course!
Where games come about quickly, Premier League managers are often obliged to rotate their squads, while unexpected last minute injuries tend to be highlighted just hours before kick off rather than days. That means those that lined up just 48 hours earlier might not have done enough to make the team again this week.
Remember FanDuel allows you to change anyone in your lineup up to 1 minute before their game has kicked off so be sure to keep an eye on our Twitter feed once line-ups are announced this week for any last minute tweaks we might need to make.
More importantly, this week the format of the contests has changed slightly too. Rather than a contest with the full roster of teams, for GW16 we have a Tuesday contest (made up of just 4 teams) and a Wednesday contest (made up of the rest).
Tuesday’s matches include Everton v Arsenal and Bournemouth v Leicester City only. Wednesday covers the other 16 teams with some standout FanDuel specific fixtures such as Sunderland v Chelsea and Spurs v Hull to keep an eye on.
We have attempted to make sense of it all for you and highlighted the TOP PICKS & DIFFERENTIALS you should be looking out for, when putting a team together for both Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s contests in the following articles.
