It’s been a pretty difficult start to life at the London Stadium for West Ham and that’s been largely reflected in the league form.

There was an air of optimism around the club after last season. The Hammers had a great year finishing seventh and were hopeful things were going to kick on from this campaign but so far they have stuttered.

Some of their key players have let the team down badly so far this year and for FanDuel players you need to be wary of putting them in your side.

FanDuel is a brand new kind of fantasy football that allows you to make a fresh start every week with your fantasy team. If last week went badly this week could be the one to win you the cash prize, whatever happened in the past doesn’t matter. As well as this FanDuel will match your first deposit all the way up to £400 so now’s a great time to sign up.

But should you put some Hammers players in? It’s of course a risk but the fact of the matter is the club have good players that should turn things around and by putting them in your team, you could be stealing a march on the opposition.

So, who are the main culprits then? Let’s take a look at the three players the Hammers need to raise it according to FanDuel:

Adrian 52.75 points

Adrian was a very reliable stopper last season as the Hammers qualified for the Europa League play-off round but this season he seems to have gone off the boil.

He switched off during the Watford game last weekend and has yet to put in one of those commanding performances we grew accustomed to of him last year. He has just the one clean-sheet to his name so far from the game against Bournemouth.

Mark Noble 47 points

The West Ham captain was a real driving force behind the team’s performances last season but he seems to have gone quiet so far this season.

When on form he’s able to control the way the club play and he gets the rest of the team going so the Hammers need him to help them kickstart their season. Some want to see him in the England set up but to put it into contrast Jordan Henderson has 78.5 FanDuel points.

Winston Reid 68.25 points

Reid was a big player for the Hammers last season but seems to have lost some of that presence at the back so far this year. He very rarely got bullied in 2015/16 but has so far not been up to the task whilst James Collins has been the shining light in West Ham’s back four.

He’s a good player undoubtedly he just needs that bit of confidence back to help him rediscover what made him such a coveted centre-half last season.
