Asia Cup Fantasy Expert First Drafts

In this article we take a look at some Asia Cup Fantasy expert first drafts. Our expert Asia Cup Fantasy managers reveal their first draft, some of the rationale behind the players they have chosen and the teams they are investing in.

Checking out some Asia Cup Fantasy expert first drafts can be extremely beneficial. Knowing which players and teams our experts are investing in can give us clarity on decisions we have to make in our own teams. This can also help us with plans around chips, captaincy and transfers.

Notes

  • Son and Taremi (or Azmoun) are essential for me up top. Martin Boyle also has a great goal record in a strong looking Australian attack.
  • Son gets the captaincy for MD1 which is a no brainer.
  • Grabbing a few of the most attacking midfielders will be essential, with no points available for defensive actions.
  • Doski is purely an enabler. He looks nailed but he is playing full-back and has limited attacking threat.
  • My backline is mainly filled with the cheapest nailed (or mostly nailed) routes into the best defences, but without any premiums there.
  • Aqidi from Saudi Arabia (€4.5M GK) is a gift. Zion Suzuki also looks like the best of the €5M keeper options behind a strong Japanese defence.

Notes

  • Son and Azmoun are locked in my team.
  • Duke is great option for Australia with their great attack.
  • Son will be my captain.
  • I looked for mid-priced players and excellent statistics.
  • It was also important for me to cover the best attacking teams that I expected to reach a further place in the tournament.
  • In the defensive line I looked for cheap players that were nailed for gametime.
  • I don’t think there will be many clean sheets for most teams due to the strength of the competition and teams involved.
  • Goalkeeper Suzuki was the best option for me as cover for the Japanese defence.

Notes

  • I’m going all in for the big teams (currently on six double-ups) as I think there will be some good results for them in the group stage. I tried to cover one defender (or goalkeeper) and one attacker (or midfielder) from each team.
  • There’s many nailed players in my team in terms of gametime (Son – Taremi – Aldawsari – Suzuki – Alaqidi, Irani defender and an Australian defender).
  • I went for the template goalkeepers (Suzuki Aqidi) as they offer a route into solid defences and are cheap.
  • I tried to mix it up between template and differentials (Khalifa Alhamadi – Shukorov – Ueda).
  • Picking 15 nailed players who play on different days (not many from the last day) will be key to get a good rank.
  • There’s some players I really wanted but couldn’t get otherwise I wouldn’t have a balanced team (Wu Lei – Almoez – Souttar – Mabkhout – Ito).

@FantasyHalf

Notes

  • €4.5m for the Saudi goalkeeper is a good start and just a €4m bench until I find if any €4m options start.
  • In defence it is the same again. Ki Je Lee plays more advanced.
  • Midfield is up in the air really going by ownership and expectation to play.
  • I will update this after next round of friendlies and after Kubo’ fitness is addressed.
  • I am happy with the front three against weaker opponents and I can also captain a player in the first game.
  • This is no way set in stone and I expect several changes before Matchday 1.
