Fantasy Football – Week two invaluable advice


Week one has come and gone, and as was expected by the bookies, Fermanagh were the winners.

In Fantasy Football, the top scorer was Tomas Corrigan, which was not a massive suprise since Corrigan had been scoring well during the league.

If we take that lead for our analysis of this weekend’s game between Derry and Tyrone, the advice would be to avoid Derry players completely bar Mark Lynch. He scored 72 points from midfield in the national League, and he should get a couple of points this weekend.

So Tyrone are the team to major on this weekend if you want to get maximum points. Any of the defenders are viable options as the Red Hands are likely to record a clean sheet despite the fact that Derry have scored a lot of goals this season.

The main defensive players who should go beyond the clean sheet points is Peter Harte. He was the Fantasy all-star in last year’s league competition. He’s named at wing half back for Sunday’s game, and should get forward and get a few points.

At midfield, Mattie Donnelly is a priority for Tyrone pickers. He’s going to be a regular, and he gets forward to score.

Then there’s the old reliable Sean Cavanagh in the full forward line. He’ll get a lot of points from the edge of the square.

Niall Sludden‘s a good choice for another defender, while Connor McAliskey in the full forward line should get a lot of scores

If you want a wild card player, consider putting Barry Tierney on your team. He’s not starting on Sunday, but he’s the sort of defender who gets goals.


Take note that while week one was last weekend, there’s still an opportunity to win the overall prize. As only two Ulster teams have played.
