ISL Fantasy MW7 Deadline: Saturday, November 25, 04:00* PM IST
*Early Deadline

The Indian Super League (ISL) resumes this week after the second international break of the season, heralding another brief yet thrilling Matchweek. The challenge of strategic planning persists for ISL Fantasy managers, with Matchweek 7 unfolding as the second substantial blank week of the season.

During this week, Mohun Bagan Super Giant, Mumbai City FC, Odisha FC, and Punjab FC will have no matches, and hence, managers will yet again have to adjust their squads. The option of Wildcard or Free Hit remains open for managers whose teams were packed with players from the clubs mentioned above.

Matchweek 6 Summary

The first Double Matchweek of the season was full of excitement, featuring comeback wins, last-minute goals, and stunning strikes. Matchweek 6 saw a total of 24 goals across eight games in the week, averaging three goals per match.

Full-back Amey Ranawade racked up 13 points during the week, thanks to his winning strike against Bengaluru FC and clean sheet against NorthEast United FC.

The Blues’ forward Ryan Williams scored in each of the two matches during Matchweek and gave a significant edge to his owner over their rivals. Juan Mera netted his first goal in the ISL during Matchweek, accumulating 10 points from two matches in the week.

Meanwhile, Odisha FC midfielders Puitea and Isaka Ralte racked up 10 points each in Matchweek 6, with both players finding the back of the net against Bengaluru FC.

Matchweek 7: What to Expect?

Chennaiyin FC, coming off a heavy defeat in their last game, will kick off Matchweek 7 as they host East Bengal FC in the early fixture on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Kerala Blasters FC returns home to host Hyderabad FC, who are struggling in the bottom half of the table, later on the same day. ISL Fantasy managers can surely target KBFC players given their run of form on home soil.

NorthEast United FC and Bengaluru FC will go head-to-head in another exciting match on Sunday, with both teams aiming to return to winning ways.

FC Goa, currently sitting on top of the table, will host Jamshedpur FC in what will be their third home match of the season and the concluding game of Matchweek 7. The Gaurs have emerged victorious in both of the previous matches.

What the managers are thinking?

Transferred INs

The Gaurs have displayed excellent solidity at the back and have already secured three clean sheets this season. Full-back Jay Gupta, who has also showcased his attacking attributes by scoring a goal and providing an assist this season, is the most popular transferred-in player. His teammate Sandesh Jhingan has also been favoured by managers ahead of their home fixture against Jamshedpur FC.

Kerala Blasters FC goalkeeper Sachin Suresh, who became the first keeper to save penalties in consecutive matches in the ISL, is also being brought in by fantasy managers.

Chennaiyin FC duo Rafael Crivellaro and Connor Shields complete the list of the top five transferred players.

Player Position  Club Transfers IN
Jay Gupta Defender  FC Goa 592
Sachin Suresh Goalkeeper Kerala Blasters FC 559
Rafael Crivellaro Midfielder Chennaiyin FC 509
Connor Shields Midfielder Chennaiyin FC  328
Sandesh Jhingan Defender FC Goa  236

Transferred OUTs

Suspensions, injuries, and blank matchweeks are influencing ISL fantasy managers' decisions when it comes to omitting players from their squads, with injured Anwar Ali leading the exit chart. Mourtada Fall, who missed the double Matchweek due to injury, is also among the most transferred-out players. Rehenesh TP, facing suspension for the match against FC Goa, is another player being taken out by fantasy managers.

Player Position  Club Transfers OUT
Anwar Ali Defender  Mohun Bagan Super Giant 370
Mourtada Fall Defender  Odisha FC 301

Top Picks for Matchweek 7

Adrian Luna (Kerala Blasters FC): Kerala Blasters FC always poses a formidable threat when playing on their home ground, and Luna stands out as a key player who could leave a significant mark. It's worth mentioning that the Uruguayan has contributed either through goals or assists in each of the team's four previous home matches this season.

Noah Sadaoui (FC Goa): The Moroccan has already found the back of the net twice in as many as three appearances, establishing himself as the central star in attacking returns since joining the Gaurs last season. Sadaoui would undoubtedly aim to extend his goal-scoring tally against Jamshedpur FC.

Rafael Crivellaro (Chennaiyin FC): Having scored two goals and provided two assists already this season, the Brazilian midfielder has demonstrated his reliability in the Chennaiyin FC midfield. His creativity, vision, and attacking abilities make him a solid choice for the Marina Machans, who will be desperate to secure a win against struggling East Bengal FC.

Top Differential Picks for Matchweek 7

Kwame Peprah (Kerala Blasters FC): With Dimitrios Diamantakos out due to suspension, the Ghanaian forward is set to lead the line for the Blasters. Peprah is yet to score his first goal in the ISL, and he would be eager to break that drought against a struggling Hyderabad FC side. With an ownership of just 2%, the forward could be the biggest differential pick this week.

Carlos Martinez (FC Goa): The Spaniard has been a regular starter for the Gaurs, and now with Noah Sadaoui back in the squad, Martinez is likely to get more opportunities to find the back of the net. He is owned by only 3% of ISL fantasy managers.

Ryan Williams (Bengaluru FC): Williams, owned by only 3% of ISL fantasy managers, has showcased his class in the double Matchweek by getting on the scoresheet in both matches. His finishing and shooting accuracy make him a reliable option for managers, especially against NorthEast United FC.

Captaincy Pick: Adrian Luna

Managers could face a dilemma between Luna and Sadaoui for captaincy picks this week, but the former has the slight edge with his impressive numbers. The Uruguayan midfielder is the mainstay of the Kerala Blasters FC attack, getting involved in every attacking move they create.
