Project 50 on Matchday 15: Fantastic Five for 'The Coach'?

There is currently no stopping James 'The Coach' Thorogood in the 'Project 50' challenge, after he secured a fourth straight victory on Matchday 14.

Project 50 is simple enough to play, even if it has proven rather trickier to win! With a 50M budget, our trio of Official Fantasy Bundesliga experts have to choose the five players – two defenders, two midfielders and a striker – that they believe will notch up the biggest points tally over the Matchday. 

All five of James' players scored points last week, but Robert Lewandowski was a particularly inspired choice – the FC Bayern München striker's double against VfL Wolfsburg lifted 'The Coach' to a fourth straight win. Can he make it a fantastic five in the final Project 50 of 2016? Or will there be Christmas cheer for one of his rivals: Matt 'The Expert' Howarth and Flo 'The Scout' Reinecke?

Fantastic four! While I'm taking nothing for granted after making it four straight wins in Project 50, I do feel like I now have the freedom to take some big risks in the hope they produce big rewards… and a fifth win!

Matt 'The Expert' Howarth

I've experimented with several players since my three-game winning streak came to an end last month, but now it's time to bring the big boys back in!

Flo 'The Scout' Reinecke

It's now or never for me this week! After nine unsuccessful attempts, the time has come for me to land a maiden Project 50 victory. Luckily, I have spent this week analysing some of the overlooked Fantasy stars in the Bundesliga, and four of the five players in my team featured in the article. James and Matt won't know what hit them!
