NWSL Fantasy League Week 1

TWFC-S1x01

Update: Pathetic. 49pts. Solo  (24), Broon (-.5) Barnes (8), Robinson (0), Lloyd (-.5), Holiday (5), Fishlock (6.5), Tymrak (4) Leroux (7), Naho (0), Masar (-4.5). Masar was the ultimate FL assassin. Whyyyy?

Twin Peaks FC is back! While I crashed and burned in NWSL Fantasy League last year I’m giving it another shot. It helps that when I sentimentally select players from my favorite team now (as one does) I won’t be as burned for it this year. Looking at you Reign.

I picked Captain Solo not just because I like how it sounds (I do tho) but I think Reign will win and Hope will have to make a few saves in the process which means points. I went with the 3-4-3 because defenders just don’t bring in many points. Broon, Barnes, and Robinson are as solid as they get. Depending on how they tend to rack up fouls will probably be the only times I move away from them.

I stuck with attacking mids outside of Fishlock. I’m not sure how far back she’ll play this year or how card happy she’ll be this year with her role on the team. I think she’s a good wildcard to have in there this week what with Little jetlagged likely and once I get a better sense of how Harvey will play her I’ll know if she should be in my all attacking all the time midfield.

The forwards were difficult for me since some players listed as forwards that I like have better chances of being assist generator types. I picked Leroux because she’ll be getting great service and is playing against her former team. Naho because she will likely be faciliting the offense and thus assists I hope. Finally I picked Masar because she has a lot to prove and will be holding things together for a young team. If it comes down to forcing things to happen in the offense she’ll find a way I think. Portland’s defense is shaky with all the players out. I’m expecting lots of goals for both sides. That’s why I left most of the Pricks and Dash off for now.
