Chief's #FPL Team - Gameweek 19



Latest Rank: 15,016 (9k fall)
 
  Transfers:
  Giroud* (OUT)
  Benteke (IN)
New Bank Balance: £0.4M

*Giroud was a spectacular fail & Benteke is a viable replacement.

Why have I bought Benteke
?

The stats don't lie...

Benteke has viable fantasy returns in his last 2 home games.
Has registered 4 shots on target at home in his last 2 home games.
Benteke's home ALI (potency) is higher than Austin's since GW15.
Has a pedigree of scoring in the PL. I think he is due to score more.
Villa have a good run of upcoming games: SUN (H), CRY (H), LEI (A)
 
 Why did I captain Austin?

Joint top goalscorer at home in the PL this season (9).
Joint best "fantasy returns at home of any player in the PL (7).
  Most shots on target at home of any player in the PL (20).
Best player for shots on target at home since GW 16 (6).
QPR (17) have scored more goals at home than Man City (15).
Palace are manager-less and concede 1.78 goals when away in 14/15. 

In addition...
 
If QPR score, it's almost safe to say that Austin has scored:

Austin takes more shots on target at home than any of his teammates:

In summary, Austin has been formidable when playing at home in the PL:
