Who's who in the double Gameweeks?
Double Gameweek 33, Double Gameweek 34, Blank in Week 35, Double Gameweek 37
Due to their progression in both the FA Cup and the League Cup, Everton have three double Gameweeks, including back-to-back doubles in Gameweeks 33 and 34 but they also have a blank in Gameweek 35.
Double Gameweek 33, Double Gameweek 34, Blank in Week 35, Single Gameweek 37
Like Everton, Crystal Palace also have back-to-back double Gameweeks in weeks 33 and 34 followed by a blank in Gameweek 35. But while Gameweek 33’s two home ties look favourable, they face a pair of hard away fixtures in Gameweek 34 and then a blank in Gameweek 35. They are a team that may be best to consider for Gameweek 33 only.
Double Gameweek 34, Game in Week 35, Double Gameweek 37
With seven fixtures in the last five weeks and no blank Gameweeks to worry about, Liverpool seem to be the best bet in April.
Double Gameweek 34, Game in Week 35, Single Gameweek 37
These teams (Arsenal, City, WBA and Newcastle) will be good to have going into Gameweek 34 as they have three fixtures over two weeks but you might want to sell them ahead of Double Gameweek 37.
Double Gameweek 34, Blank in Week 35, Double Gameweek 37
These teams (West Ham, ManU, Watford) are good to have in moderation in Gameweek 34, but if we pick too many we will find ourselves struggling to field 11 players in Gameweek 35
Single Gameweek 34, Game in Week 35, Double Gameweek 37
Chelsea and Sunderland can be bought from Gameweek 35 onwards to replace players without any more double Gameweeks.

Manager of the Week
In Week 32 last season, Sachin was still in the top 10. How the mighty have fallen, with Sachin now languishing in 29th, but the boy done good this week with his defence of just Ospina, Bellerin, Van Aanholt and Huth bringing him a huge 35 points alone. Add that to having Payet as captain and a forward line including Aguero and Kane, and you’ve got a good team. BTW, if anyone is wondering why 82 points Gareth Jennings didn’t win this week, he’s not in recruitment but a coach at Bristol City. Should be doing better than 27th with all that inside knowledge eh?
Well done Sachin. Nice to give you a mention this season.

With 84 points in 73rd place, we find one Megan Willey. Megan works for the sponsors, FuturaRec2Rec as a senior resourcing consultant which sounds like a very powerful title. Anyway, Megan has played her wildcard this week to very good effect, clearing out some deadwood to an obvious good effect with Lanzini a great choice this week. Along with all those good Mancs at Futura, Megan is a massive City fan, but that hasn’t swayed her choice of players with only Aguero in her new team.
A bit more faith in KdB might help Megs!
The Best of the Rest
With a massive 100 points in 141st place, Adam Metcalfe has broke the ton. We have to point out that City fan Adam doesn’t normally do this well. In fact, we heard that the lads at Morson have been using that song the City fans sang after Willy Caballero made all those penalty saves in the Capital One Cup Final, “He used to be sh1te, but now he’s alright etc.” So how’s he done it? Well, he’s only had one low scorer in his team in Alli, but Adam having played his wildcard back in January has made no less than 4 changes to his team and it’s really paid dividends. There’s hope for us all on the double Gameweeks then.
Well done Adam. What a superb performance this week.
The second keeper on the trot to get injured out. Stoke’s finest is not only out for the season, but out of the Euro’s with a broken ankle. Poor lad. We really shouldn’t have to point this out but 17% of you have still got him in your team.
Get him binned!
One to watch..........
The way Norwich are shaping up, they look favourites to avoid relegation and their 6’ 4” young Swiss centre back is playing his full part in this with 2 assists and a goal in the past 3 games. 24 points in 3 games, £4.2m, just a 0.2% ownership, a goal scoring defender and Norwich fighting back.
Team names please
The reason we ask for your agency name as part of your team name is because it’s the only way we can ensure that we are paying the prizes out to the correct managers and that those managers are genuinely in the recruitment industry.
With the latest hacking of our league from semi-professional FL-ers, its even more important. Please help us manage the league better by doing this.
However, those of you who aren’t putting in your team names are missing out on some great publicity for your agency and, as recruiters tend to be competitive creatures, isn’t it better to beat you rivals in business AND in the fantasy league?

“After contacting Futura I was put in touch with Natasha and was straight away impressed with her knowledge of the clients she had available. Her clients were an excellent match both market wise and in terms of personality fit and I am very happy with the decision I made. I would definitely recommend her to other candidates as well as other businesses looking to bring on new recruitment consultants”Futura candidate
