This Week’s Match Ups

February 5, 2018 | FP Strategist

Tue 6th – 12pm – SD Farms vs Colorado

Colorado will be playing their first match of the Ylvisaker Cup. Their players were inconsistent point scorers in the Joe Barry but we wait to see what this new tournament brings. SD Farms had an up and down Joe Barry too but both Sayyu Dantata and Ignacio Laprida performed well in the last match against La Indiana so might be worth your money moving forward.

Top Pick – Sayyu Dantata – 2 goals and only $12k he is a bargain and can help you leave budget for some bigger players.

To Avoid – Santino Magrini – loses points through fouls and at $17k there are better picks out there.

Tue 6th – 3pm -Pilot vs La Indiana

It is worth looking closely at the Pilot players as they will play twice during the week and therefore will offer more point scoring opportunities and save you transfers. La Indiana’s scores in their last match were all low and against what will surely be a tough opposition I would not back them as big point scorers.

Top Pick – Facundo Pieres – big price tag, but high risk reward matrix.

To Avoid – Gonzalo Pieres – a lot of money is showing little return as of yet.

Wed 7th – 3pm – Prestige Worldwide vs Audi

Fairly underwhelming in their last match in terms of Fantasy points Prestige Worldwide are up against some big point scorers. Audi’s Nic Roldan and Nico Pieres scored highly and are known to be consistent in the Fantasy rankings. My money would be on the Audi boys as safe bets in this match up.

Top Pick – Nico Pieres – had a great last game and is a consistent point t scorer and penalty taker.

To Avoid – Marc Ganzi – 3 fouls and a yellow card makes him too high risk.

Fri 9th – 12pm – Valiente vs GSA

Normally so reliable GSA’s Mariano Gonzalez is the only one I would put my money on in that team but a yellow in his last match sees his score lowered to just 10.25. As to Valiente, their point scores were underwhelming in what should have been a high scoring match. Cambiaso will have to perform better if he is to live up to his huge price tag. This may be a fixture worth sacrificing for other more profitable matches.

Top Pick – Mariano Gonzalez – a solid pick if he can stay away from those yellows.

To Avoid – Bautista Panelo – for $15k you can pick up a better bargain.

Fri th – 3pm – Pilot vs Carillon Miami

A second match in the week for Pilot means you should hopefully have at least one of them in your team if you are saving on transfers. Carillon Miami (formerly Modere) have some good point scorers so this match should be point heavy and you should think about this match carefully when planning your team for the week.

Top Pick – Timmy Dutta – the best bargain out there for now at just $5k he works hard to earn plenty of points.

To Avoid – Curtis Pilot – although not detrimental I would consider paying a little more to get Jim Zenni.
