Best Builds for the Final

April 22, 2017 | Katie Vickery

For those of you who have not made your final transfers and are looking at who best to play for this upcoming final on Sunday, we take a look at several options. At this point in the competition, although I hope you have saved some of your transfers, it is probably the case that you have just one or two transfers left to aid you in picking your final line up, therefore there may not be too much choice in the matter.

Here are three builds that I believe will earn you a solid amount of points and may mean you have to use fewer transfers as hopefully you have some of them in your team already.

Best Build 1 – $94,000

Facundo Pieres

Diego Cavanagh

Bob Jornayvaz

Steve Van Andel

Even with two patrons in your team you will still not be able to afford Adolfo Cambiaso AND Facundo Pieres, but looking at past performance this is not such a bad thing. Diego Cavanagh comes in as one of the most valuable players on the field with a 24.25 points per match average and making you 3.13 points per $1000 of his value. This is a better bet than Cambiaso who earns you just 2.62 points per $1000. Despite Facundo’s poor fantasy performance the last time Orchard Hill met Valiente, he is still a top pick for me and hopefully for you he has worked out the Valiente side and will rack up his customary 30+ point score. The two patrons, if Bob Jornayvaz can save from getting more yellows, should earn you a tidy few points to ad on top of your superstar total.

Build 2 – $100,000

Diego Cavanagh

Pablo Pieres

Matias Torres Zavaleta

Melissa Ganzi

No I have not gone crazy. I know Melissa Ganzi is not playing but as the cheapest player in the tournament, having her in your team gives you the chance to have three potential big scorers with no risk of negative points to bring your total down. Between Diego Cavanagh and Pablo Pieres (the two high scorers of the previous Valiente Orchard Hill match up) you should have a very solid foundation. It will be interesting to see how Matias Torres Zavaleta performs, having been injured early in the match last time. This is a risky build as by just having three playing members in your line up limits point scoring opportunities however, it will be good for those with fewer transfers to spare to look at the option of a non playing member and it also decreases the risk of stray yellows and fouls.

Build 3 – $99,000

Adolfo Cambiaso

Juan Chavanne

Matias Torres Zavaleta

Steve Van Andel

This build is centered around Adolfo Cambiaso. His price makes human unwieldy player to have in your line up as it is limiting however he has given cause to believe that he is worth every penny with a recent 46 point score that could win you the competition. You are then left with room to add in the two middle handicapped players Juan Chavanne and Matias Torres Zavaleta, who should earn you a healthy bonus to Cambiaso’s total. Of the two patrons my bet would go with the safer Steve Van Andel who has averaged 3.75 this season and, although not high scoring, he is a clean player and not a risk.
