Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Ken Sema – With 9 goal contributions (5 goals and 4 assists), Ken Sema is one of Watford’s most lucrative players this season. He has created 51 chances and has scored 5 goals from just 6 shots on target. Playing on the left-flank, Sema has completed 34 successful dribbles while also whipping in 34 accurate crosses.

Jordan Rhodes – Jordan Rhodes has 6 goals and 1 assist in 9 starts for the club. He has also been in stunning form with 3 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 games, including a brace against Barnsley. He also has 11 shots on target in 9 starts so far and has created 7 chances for his teammates.

Differential Pick

Kiko Femenia – Playing in the right-back position, Kiko Femenia has been very impressive this season. He has 3 assists despite playing in defence and has been part of a defence that has conceded the fewest goals in the league this season. He has also created 31 chances while successfully completing 24 of his attempted dribbles at a 63% success rate. Femenia has whipped in 28 accurate crosses but has not neglected his defensive duties either with 28 successful tackles at a 68% success rate. He has also made 51 clearances and 37 interceptions.

WAT vs SHFF Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Westwood
Defenders – Troost-Ekong, Masina, Femenia (VC)
Midfielders – Windass, Sema (C), Hughes, Chalobah
Forwards – Paterson, Rhodes, Joao Pedro

Likely Winner

The team in second takes on the team that’s in second-last which makes Watford the favourites for the WAT vs SHFF Today Match Prediction. Xisco’s side has also scored 55 goals in 38 games which is quite impressive and will look to add another win in their bid to re-qualify for the top flight of English football. Sheffield Wednesday has some worries but will look to build upon their impressive win against Barnsley and hopefully turn a corner. They are just 6 points from safety and a result against Watford will be a massive boost for their campaign.
