The last week of the Sky Sports Fantasy Football game before the international break means one last chance to score some important points for qualification.
It is an important time for Sky Sports Fantasy Football players. Like the 20 teams in the Premier League, you don’t want to enter the international break after a bad result or, in our case, a bad weekend.
There are certain ways you can avoid this but, aside from the obvious choices, if you are looking to make a transfer before this weekend, then there are some form players to consider.
Aaron Ramsdale – £ 6.8 million
Many questioned the signing of Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United, with Bernd Leno apparently the man between the sticks for Arsenal. It seems the £ 25 million Arsenal paid for him is a bargain, to say the least.
Ramsdale has posted 58 Fantasy Football points in just seven games this span, averaging just under 8.3 points per game.
He appears to be the keeper’s asset at the moment, with four clean sheets in those seven games and five tiered bonus points in that span as well, not to mention performances by two gamers and a 15-point loot against Leicester. on the weekend.
With a struggling home game against Watford to come, I expect England’s stopper to be back in the points, potentially grabbing double figures depending on the shots he takes on. That said, Arsenal have been solid at the back recently and will not pass up as many opportunities for Claudio Ranieri’s team as they did with Leicester the week before.
Prediction: Aaron Ramsdale will score more than 9 points vs Watford
Antonio Rudiger – £ 9 million
We were often victims of the latest ‘Pep Roulette’ campaign in regards to Sky Sports Fantasy Football, but this time there is another newcomer to the party, and that man is named Thomas Tuchel.
The Chelsea manager likes to rotate his defenders and full-backs quite regularly, although Antonio Rudiger seems to be the exception to that rule, having started nine of Chelsea’s 10 Premier League games so far.
A goal and clean sheet against Tottenham, along with five other clean sheets for the campaign, leaves little surprise as to why their points tally this season (66), in the defender region, is second only to Joao Cancelo of Manchester City.
A home game against a physical Burnley awaits him, with the skilled Maxwel Cornet in flawless form (four goals in four starts, 34 FF points) and posing the greatest threat to another possible clean sheet. With Rudiger in the 73.3% of the top 1,000 Sky Sports Fantasy Football teams, why would you miss out?
Prediction: Antonio Rudiger to score more than 10 points vs Burnley.
Leon Bailey – £ 8.2 million
Sure, Aston Villa are in bad shape and staring down the barrel of a fifth consecutive Premier League loss, but there is hope for optimism for two reasons regarding Fantasy Football.
First, Villa’s trip to St Mary’s to face Southampton falls on a Friday. Individual game day horn! The best chance for a captaincy option that will earn you double points. In keeping with that, the man who will potentially bring some points to his side is Leon Bailey.
It’s easy to forget that Villa’s new signing from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer has only started one game, but has scored one goal, two assists and a man of the match.
All of these came from different backup appearances, but it’s worth noting that Bailey posted level two tackle bonus points (four tackles) in his only start to the season against West Ham on Sunday. His points could come from different routes, which is important for a midfield asset, but most of all, if he and his team want to turn their luck on Friday, he will be at the heart of it.
Prediction: Leon Bailey will score more than 8 points vs Southampton
Gameweek 13 deadlines for captaincy picks and transfers (every day) are as follows:
- Friday 8pm

Choose wisely, as bragging rights in mini-leagues go way beyond this Gameweek. Don’t do too many transfers too; remember you only have 40 for the Sky Sports Fantasy Football campaign and another review period in 2022.
