    With Lloris gone, I'm not drafting a keeper anytime soon.

    posted a pick too early but edited, hopefully nobody saw it

    not too bothered about a keeper right now. sacrificing potentially good midfielder/forward pick ups for a goalie too early boys

    Ed kind of convinced me with the volatility of the keepers' score. The difference between a scrub keeper and a good one is potentially 50+ points. The difference between a good and a decent midfielder is much smaller. Plus I've got my three strikers already.

    Meh. I think it's volatile more in the sense that any day any keeper can get you 10 pts. I don't mind grabbing 2/3 decent keepers like I did last year and switching them based on form/opponent.

    I had Lloris and Mignolet last season and wasn't let down much but idk, think that with there being 8 of us, everyone will most likely grab a decent keeper at some point anyway. I've got another 2 forwards in mind anyway and I feel confident neither of them are going soon. maybe one of them is but the other definitely shouldn't be. probably going to try and round out my midfield and defence for a bit.

    Re: 2016/2017 WC Fantrax Divison 1 Discussion

    In my head, I am close to finishing my midfield and strike partnership so probably best to snatch the keeper I want before anyone else gets the chance. Then all I need to worry about is my defence and my subs

    Might add two defenders next round and leave a third striker until the supp draft...

    Bizarro draft: we're only into the sixth round and we've got two consecutive Sunderland defender picks. Madness, I say!

    There are so many great players being missed here, praying a few more forget about certain people.

    I was going to pick PVA but Zero again beat me to someone and Kone could be off to Everton so in a better team.

    To be fair, Van Aanholt is a good choice considering Moyes teams are focused on attacking fullbacks. He could be like a shit Coleman or something.

    Re: 2016/2017 WC Fantrax Divison 1 Discussion

    Almost halfway through, aside from what I think are weak picks by DE with Rooney, Kante, and an early De Gea, I think it's pretty tight though. Everyone's got some risks, and some top class players, even Zero looks like he'll make a strong push. Should be interesting to see if we get any Vardy/Mahrez type shocks this season and who can steal tehm first.

    Re: 2016/2017 WC Fantrax Divison 1 Discussion

    I'm very happy with my side, need to just sort a second striker really. Got a couple of later picks which I think could really make a difference from mid table sides as well.

    Fingers crossed my 2nd choice defender doesn't go in the next 2 picks.

    Really? Rooney looks like he is going to be a starter behind Zlatan so he has every chance to get points just by playing nearly every game. Kante is a great player and just gone to Chelsea for £32 mill so will definitely play also. As for De Gea, I swiped the best goalkeeper in the league before anyone else and last year the real difference in a lot of matches were the bloody goalkeepers!

    I've narrowly missed on a few picks (really wanted Mkhitaryan) but so far I'm happy with my picks. Just working on getting the full squad first before picking up the subs that could get some decent points if need be

    Yeah Jon's out to lunch with Rooney, looks set to be number 10 under Jose and will rack up points. I was happy to get him in the 4th round.

    Kante though......great player but you don't get points for tackles and interceptions in this game.

    Ah so your Rooney defence comes from picking him too I dont think he'll do anything except get 2pts a game for playing much like Kante. Kante's value doesnt get reflected in the game. As for de Gea, I think DMac and I both made it far with pretty shite or at least not top tier keepers.

    Fair point about Kante but if he digs out great performance after great performance, I'll see the points come in. I think he could turn into a decent pick.

    Rooney behind Zlatan? He is going to be a potential beast this year, assists should be up and goals have the potential to go up. Not to mention Utd are going to be playing a more attacking style than before (judging on signings), I think Rooney could clear up.

    As for goalkeeping, that maybe for you but last year I was leaking points until picking Schmeichel. The difference between a great goalkeeper and a good goalkeeper could be a huge amount of points.

    I'm chuffed with my team. I was glad that Cesc managed to slip through the cracks until my 6th round pick. Even in a shit season last year he picked up a decent amount of assists. Certain starter, probably only behind Ozil in terms of ability to create chances for teammates.

    All the teams look pretty equal, I think Mr Blonde's stands out as being a particularly good team so far.

    Cesc was gonna be my next pick but I went with Willian after you took him Shock. I think your team is very strong so far.
