Season Review

For many, the Gameweek prior to the World Cup was significant in terms of rank change. With so few points going to the more popular picks, Gameweek 16 offered an opportunity for those who had gone against the template to gain some ground. And of course, it offered misery to those who stuck to ‘conventional wisdom’. For Dan, it was particularly brutal, dropping him from 256k to 507k in one harsh weekend.

Dan’s season has been up and down. A reasonable start, saw him rise to 237k by Gameweek 5 but a difficult Gameweek 6 dropped him right down to 600k. Dan worked his way back up from here, getting as high as 167k in Gameweek 11, but a string of three red arrows dropped him back down to 433k in Gameweek 14.

When asked about the Gameweeks leading up to the World Cup, Dan said:

It’s been a tough season so far for me, spending most of it fluctuating in rank in the top half a million. This was particularly evident in the last two gameweeks, going from 430k up to 250k and then back down to 500k. That gives me a lot of hope for the rest of the season though, as the ranks are still heavily congested. One good gameweek can propel you up the ranks.
