Results: Fantasy FIFA Week 1

To say this was a crazy week for the FIFA market would be an understatement. Hero cards. Harry Kane POTM. Russian and Liga NOS League SBCs. And, or course, our first “Prime” Icons. Here’s how these events effected our Fantasy FIFA Week 1 Lineup.

*tax not included*

Budget: 500,000 Coins

Increasing by 133% from Sunday to Friday, inform Rui Patricio was by far the best investment for the week. High rated informs were required for both the Kane POTM and Icon SBCs, and his price soared as a result. Selling Fabregas before the POTM announcement came in 2nd with a 44% increase, and Otamendi’s 38% hike was the 3rd best call of the week.

Optimal Lineup:

  • 27 Patricios bought for 486,000 and sold for 1,134,000
  • 4 Otamendis bought for 11,600 and sold for 16,000 before POTM
  • TOTAL: 1,150,000

Results:

  1. Chief : 4xPatricio (168,000) + 2xMeunier (110,000) + 1xLew (305,000) + 1xVertonghen (24,000) = 607,000
  2. AidenGen : 1xJames (200,000) + 1xMeunier (55,000) + 1xPatricio (42,000) + 2xVertonghen (60,000) + 13xOtamendi (52,000) = 409,000 + uninvested coins (155,000) = 564,000
  3. Aleks : 1xLew (305,000) + 1xJames (180,000) + 1xVertonghen (24,000) = 509,000
  4. WavyCheese : 1xLewandowski (305,000) + 60xOtamendi (120,000) = 425,000 +uninvested coins (36,000) = 461,000

I will be releasing Week 2 Fantasy FIFA tomorrow night. For a list of the rules, look at this post from Week 1. Hope you all will throw your hat in the ring! When we get enough participants (lets say 30), I’ll start doing a weekly prize. So tell your friends!

Cheers,

Chief
