Last gameweek was a bit of a weird one with defensive assets paying off more than trusted attackers for many fantasy managers. Popular captain choices Eden Hazard, Alexis Sanchez, and Harry Kane all failed to provide returns last weekend and Sergio Aguero frustrated the 250k+ managers who shipped him out over the last 3 gameweeks with a brace at Manchester United. Gameweek 33 promises to be equally tricky with blanks for the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, QPR, Aston Villa, Hull, and Sunderland. Let’s take a look at what looks promising ahead of a short-sided gameweek.
Navigating the Blanks
It’s tough when a few hot teams face a blank gameweek simultaneously. Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Jordan Henderson, Christian Benteke, Charlie Austin…the list of popular players missing this gameweek is astounding. Many fantasy managers will find it hard to field a full 11 so be wary of point hits in what will likley be a very low-scoring fantasy GW. If you’ve got two free transfers, great. If you’ve got one, that’s good too. Here are a few options for a quick swap.
