Luck is a crucial ingredient in Fantasy, and when it turns your way, you have to ride it out.
Back in Gameweek 13, my head-to-head with Mark Sutherns went to the wire. I had Sead Kolasinac left to play going into Sunday's matches, with a small lead while Mark had Mesut Ozil and Gabriel Jesus in hand.
Thanks to Ozil's absence and Pep Guardiola's surprising rotation of Jesus, I expected a loss and sneaked a win.
The saying of "making your own luck" is also true, however.
Recently I have been forcing through more transfers, showing less patience for injured players in particular.
I've also been successfully swapping goalkeepers according to fixture difficulty.
Would I prefer to have Thibaut Courtois settled in my squad for the next six matches? Sure, but failing that, I'm pretty happy with the options that seem to be available week-to-week.
In an eight-team draft league, there is always likely to be a goalkeeper option available to snap up as a free agent.
Heurelho Gomes has played a part in that strategy and I've been backing Marco Silva's Watford all season.
Deployed as a wing-back, he will be available in many leagues having been missed in the draft, and I'd advise a bid before Friday's deadline.
With Watford's schedule improving, the Dutchman can be another astute waiver signing.
The FPL Draft GW15 Waiver deadline is Friday 1 December, 11:30 GMT.
