Hey 757 Leaguers,
How is it going so far? Looking at our league standings, I couldn’t help noticing that the little girl who beat me in Round 1 is sitting on top of the leader board. Congratulations Oma! Goals allowed is running a close second with Veni.Vidi.Vici not far behind. Pittsburgh Phantoms has some work to do to break out of fourth place and then there is ole Schif’s Crew SC (me) at fifth.
If you are at one of the other positions, don’t fret – it’s only Round 4. Remember the story of “The Tortoise and the Hare – there are 28 more games to perfect your game. Besides, there is really no way to predict what is going to happen in the first few games. Round 4 could be particularly tricky because of all the players missing because of suspensions, injury, and international duty – so make your transfers carefully.
So here’s my two cents:
If you haven’t picked up Vancouver’s Octavio Rivero at $8.7, what are you waiting for? Besides, the Whitecaps play at home next week and then play twice in Round 6. I also think Dallas forward Tesho Akindele at $8.1 will steal the show in Blas Perez’s absence. Watch out taking too many Columbus, Montreal, New York City, and New York Red Bull players because they don’t play net week.
My advice for defense is to be wary of Alex Sjoberg because I saw something this week that indicated that he might be questionable (Jack Jewsbury also).
This week’s Transfer Deadline is Saturday at 3pm EST, so plan accordingly.
