This is the first run out for my new team.
The strategy is to have substitutes who regularly play and gain points so that overall I maintain a good scoreline. I'm prepared to get good average scores at the exense of occasional weeks with super high scores.
Our new keeper has been taken up by 1% of managers so far but at £ 5m he's an absolute bargain. Just one more week like the last one and his price will soar so he is worth having even as a substitute from the profit viewpoint. Personally I expect to see Cesar in the top three on points before the end of this season.
Rooney has made clear he would be happier with another team. RVP has put in a good performance. At this rate RVP will end up at City where half their talent just collect the money and hardly ever play football, which I suspect is Rooney's ambition. From a Fantasy Football viewpoint these teams make it very risky to invest in their star players.

£ 11.7 million tied up in Rooney who has scored a massive 3 points this year is a remarkable gamble...almost as bad as spending £ 13+mill on RVP and risk him becoming a high-paid spectator.
Very pleased with the re-vamped Surin Wan Puut. After Saturday's games I have 41 points with four players in Sunday's matches.
The Chelsea defence is looking solid.

41 points - then look at what I have sitting on the bench.
Selected my team for next week already...three up front and a new defender.

Another aspect to this is that my new team has risen £ 600,000 in value in just one week which gives me scope to sell players and buy in new talent later in the season.
The reason I used my wildcard last week was that I felt my new team could be out of reach if I waited too long and this proved right. Had I waited until now there would have been a £ 400,000 shortfall.
The reason I only fielded one minor Villa player was that I thought they would struggle and it was even worse than I thought. Southampton are very poor (and look who they are playing next week) but Villa may be for the drop with them at this pace.
I'm hoping the Arsenal defence hold off Tevez and just maybe Vermaelen can get an assist or even score on top of a clean sheet. Today should be interesting.
