#FlyBuy - GW35

How was the double gameweek for you? Well, I guess not many of us (apart from the Chief!) predicted that Hull players would top the scoring charts ahead of Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester players that's for sure. For what it's worth, last week's FlyBuy pick - Sone Aluko - did manage to score 6 points over the two games, so it wasn't a total flop. With only four gameweeks left, and FlyBuy picks active for five, I'm having to take a risk or two in order to find a selection who could potentially bring home the big points.

Who to pick then? Well,in reality it's only four gameweeks left, NOT four games left. With Arsenal and Sunderland playing twice in GW37, there's one last opportunity to claim extra points. When it comes to taking risks, this one smacks of desperation, but hear me out. Arsenal face Hull (A), SWA (H), MUN (A), SUN (H), WBA (H) in their five games, but my pick this week has really only been a substitute in the last 3 games.

With most, if not all, active managers no doubt about to jump on Olivier Giroud in the next few weeks, I think we could be missing a trick. Better value, and hopefully more points, could be found in purchasing "Dat Guy" Danny Welbeck. He faces two of his former clubs in this period in Manchester United and Sunderland, and he will be desperate to play a part in both. Particularly as he had no joy in the reverse fixtures earlier in the season. So, it's a huge risk, but if you've got balls of steel - or nothing to lose - then why not take a punt on Daniel Nii Tackie Mensah Welbeck?

in other news, I changed my Twitter handle last week; @meet_the_gadfly has become the shorter and hopefully more relevant @FPL_Fly. Please give me a follow if you're not doing so already...
