The 11Heroes DreamTeam for the FanTeam Main Event
FanTeam updated its prices from match to match, and since FanTeam adds a point for a win (and deducts one for a loss), favourites are more expensive than underdogs. For the WC quarterfinals, FanTeam is allowing players to set up 4 players from any given team, and we make the most of this for our dream team.
England’s defenders offer fantastic value for money. The entire English defensive line also poses a danger to goal, perhaps with the exception of Kyle Walker. Centre-backs Stones and Maguire are very strong on set pieces and they are in front of full-backs Trippier and Young. This is a dream formation. Goalgetter Kane is set in the front.
The other players in the various teams are more of an open question and less easy to choose. France has Pogba, Griezmann and Mbappe, who are superstars who can decide the outcome of a game on their own, but their defence has been a bit lacking lately. Dembele is a real bargain as we expect him to replace the injured Matuidi.
Uruguay, of course, has Cavani and Suarez, although Cavani’s place is more than questionable due to an injury, this fact could also make France’s defence more interesting to daily fantasy football managers.
Croatia also has a good chance of keeping a clean sheet and is the most obvious alternative to France if you want to bet on a favourite.
Brazil are favourites against insider tip Belgium, but this is the quarter final match where the bookmakers expect the most goals, so using defenders from either of these teams may not be a good idea.
Neymar and Coutinho are the two Brazilian players you should definitely have on your list for your attack squad. But some of the players from opponents Belgium are always good for a goal and very cheap, players like Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku.
From a budget point of view, Suarez from Uruguay and Golovin and Dzyuba from Russia are real bargains, if you believe that an alleged underdog will at least score.
