Was very close to selecting Darren Bent as the FFF this weekend – after all, the former Aston Villa captain has seen his FPL price plummet to 8M and is owned by just 1% of fantasy managers.
But instead we’ll take a risk with an even cheaper asset – Bent’s teammate Christian Benteke – valued at just 6.5M in the FPL. Need funds to bring in RVP? Look no further…
Benteke only featured for 16 minutes last week in the loss against Fulham, while Bent played 74, so he’s a danger to not even start this weekend against Norwich, but the Belgian man has looked good despite not scoring in recent months.
He’s just 0.1% owned. Norwich kept a clean sheet against Arsenal last week – so they’re confident- that’s the bad news, but Villa boss Lambert will surely have a few tricks up his sleeve against his former employer, and Benteke could just be one of those tricks.
A Funny Feeling Friday that could go terribly wrong if it’s Bent, and not Benteke, who finds the back of the net, but we’ll back the Belgian. Boom.
Good luck to all fantasy managers this weekend.
