courtios> Elliot
Rooney> Jesus
Are these trades worth it?
Hey swag tiger, IMO, it's all about balance, some biggies and some others - all up most would say Jesus is better than Rooney these days, mainly because City attack better than the Toffees - but Jesus sometimes doesn't play 90 mins etc - his coach swaps a bit, so it gets back to a matter of hunch/gut feeling.

The other swap re keeper will allow you more spend, so not a bad idea.

So the table looks like this after gameweek 5:

4 0 1 270 12
2 Blanks United

4 0 1 262 12

2 0 3 210 6
11 Beijing Town

1 0 4 230 3
12 Queens Park Raisins

1 0 4 223 3


WOW!!
Even now, only after 5 rounds of footy, the league is beginning to take better shape with 2 co-leaders now leading the way.

Huge congrats to Minto FC (Harvey) and Blanks United (wt00) who - for now at least – are out in front, albeit teams placed 3 till 10 are not that far off the pace, with even better news for Beijing Town (tba) who has greeted the winner’s circle for the first time, and sits in 11th position on averages.

Special mention to Bozo’s Ballers (Bozo97) for the highest score of the round with 81 points, and it can be seen that all games were pretty close, so clearly competition is tight all round.

Still, this league is still way early in the comp, remembering that it will extend overall to 38 weeks in total; so heaps of FUN or Luck or TALENT to reveal itself over the time to come!

All up, there are now 5,056,680 fantasy players in this comp world-wide - our league’s scores are showing signs of being better than most.

Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next week-end.

Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.

Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).
