Goalkeepers have their own separate scoring system, and thus far my strategy has been pretty simple: Pick the keeper who has the best chance of a clean sheet each week, which will get you 10 points -- the equivalent of a goal from an outfield player. If you get anything more than 10 points, it's a bonus.
But I'm starting to think about changing my approach at the goalkeeper position and taking more risks, based on the past couple weeks.This week I selected Alisson, with Liverpool hosting Cardiff City, one of the worst teams in the league. Not only was he facing a weak opponent, at Anfield, but Alisson was also tied for the league lead in clean sheets with six, and had conceded just three goals in nine games.
It wasn't a bad decision. But it was a bad result. Cardiff barely troubled Alisson, taking just two shots in the game. But in the 77th minute, a Cardiff cross took a wicked deflection off a Liverpool defender and teed up Callum Paterson to score with Cardiff's only shot on target of the game.
Bye bye, clean sheet. And Alisson's fantasy score sunk from 10 points to minus-2.
Fortunately, I still won my fantasy matchup this week. But that could have really cost me.
As it turns out, a similar thing happened to my fantasy opponent this week. He had Wolves' Rui Patricio as his goalkeeper. Wolves lost 1-0 at Brighton, and Patricio conceded a goal on Brighton's only shot on target. He also finished with minus-2.
