Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Well the pick seems so easy it actually makes me a bit scared but I will take the 2nd best player in the world : Cristiano Ronaldo

Yes they have Spain but Morocco and Iran also and they will play vs someone from group A which is quite soft

Now tell me why that is a bad pick and why Jesus should go over him

I had him 5/6 there is one big undrafted I considered but can't turn down the starting striker for arguably the best team imo.

That being said I would have homered on kane had he still been there lol

Ronaldo is a great pick because he's the ultimate stat whore. Will get a tournaments worth of scorepoints on Iran and Morocco alone.

Is Jesus even a lock to start?

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Ronaldo like Messi most likely out of everyone not named Neymar to go off for big scorepoints in group stages, plus they'll shoot everything.

Neymar, Griez, Messi, Ronaldo was my top 4.

I want to lolmuller but i'm not sure

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Even if he does (which he will), I see plenty of situations where he'll be subbed out for another attacking option because neymar isn't coming off.

Ronaldo will play 90min every game no matter what

Yeah this was the top 4 I was referring to. Surprised Ronaldo dropped, but he's sort of a gamble. Might score hat tricks against Morocco and Iran, might disappear and sulk for three matches and fly home.

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Nvm the new 1st name of Jesus.

Is it worth sharing this on google docs? I can update this fairly regularly.

Mbappe elite pick.

I'm gonna feel dirty for not picking him when he solves this world cup thing

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

I have no idea who might be left for my next pick. It's getting real hard at this point already to choose.

I picked him first in the Euros draft and I don't think he scored a point.

He only performs on the biggest of stages. Euros too small for him.

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Thought mbappe was gonna fall to 15 tbh. Been reports greasyman may be pushed wide to play upfront though so could well be an elite pick if that is the case

Re: World Cup 2018 Fantasy DRAFT

Thrilled to get this guy here. May even take a punt on him to win golden boot. The forward I want Liverpool to sign this summer

TIMO WERNER
