GW29 Review: 53pts, GWR 738,968, 1,804 pts, OR 6,117, gap 196 pts
Boom. 53 points, which is not bad in the grand scheme of this gameweek, and my TAA trumps rival's Mane once again. Small green arrow and I take the lead in the head to head bet by 6 points. I have been chasing from behind since GW7. Now I can breathe again.
The Hazard(c) overall paid off as otherwise I would have certainly put the armband on Pogba(vc). Just a shame that Haz didn't properly haul as he had a couple of good moments where another goal or assist would have also brought home 3 bonus. In any case, the main purpose of bringing him in was that he is the only big player who covers the blanks and also has a double gameweek. For me he was a no brainer pick for navigating this next run of games without a wild card.
Now my thoughts turn to final preparations for Blank/DGW/Blank. I can make 3 FTs before GW31. Without my wild card the principles are...
1) Only bring in players I want for the rest of the season.
2) Don't sweat not putting out a full team
3) Get a full playing bench, to also tee up a Bench Boost when the time is right
There are a handful of teams who have both a relatively easy finish to the season, and are also likely to be highly motivated with something big to play for (title, CL, avoid relegation). They are SOU, MUN, TOT, MCI, LIV so I want this to be the core of my squad after GW33. I currently have 7 players from these teams (Salah, Aguero, Pogba, Son, Robertson, TAA, Bednarek). I have two more players in highly motivated teams (Hazard and Barnes). Bournmouth have an easy run, are not entirely safe from relegation yet, cover the blanks, and have plenty of good cheap options. I intend to avoid Leicester and West Ham as their fixtures turn nasty for the end of season.

Here is a list of players I don't have, that are candidates for using my 3FT on...
