The Last Minute Pick-Up: Gameweek 25

Looking at the match-ups for Gameweek 25, there are a lot of last minute offensive transfers that look appealing
Anyone of these strikers has the potential to yield 20+ points this week (esp. if made captain) but the true question is which one will provide the most "relative value" for your team. Currently Wayne Rooney is owned by 45% of fantasy managers and if you are a few spots off the lead in your table, I guarantee he is the captain of the #1 team. With only 15 weeks to play, scarcity value is the key i.e. which player owned by the least amount of teams can give you the boost you need late in the season.

That is why this weeks last minute pick-up is Emmanuel Adebayor. He is currently owned by only 3.7% of fantasy managers (after his stint in the African Cup of nations), and he is looking to pick up some goals after watching Tevez steal the show over the past few weeks. Also some additional food for thought, take a look at Man City's upcoming schedule over the next few weeks:
  • Hull City Away
  • Bolton Home
  • Stoke City Away
I am willing to bet Adebayor will do some serious damage over the next few weeks....
