fantasy premier league GW28 tips – analysing the teams of 10 top FPL managers

 Here’s our fantasy premier league GW28 tips article where we analyse the teams of 10 top FPL managers. These 10 managers have not finished outside the overall rank of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons. Considering how variable the last 3 years have been this is remarkable consistency and shows an ability to adapt strategy in different seasons. It also gives you a view other than my own on strategy and player selection.

FOCUS ON 1 MANAGERS TEAM

The celebrity manager we followed last season finished around the 20k mark so he’s not in the group this season. This season were going to focus on the manager each week who had the highest finish last season with an amazing overall rank of 15 believe it or not. The 3 years before that his ranks were 5,529. 1, 550 and 759. Unbelievable.

WHO COULD HURT YOUR RANK IF YOU DON’T OWN THEM

Using my rule of thumb of owned by 7/10 of the top 10 FPL managers or 70% of the top 10k then the following players are in that category:

Alonso – 7/10 plus Chelsea defence 70%

Jones – 8/10 plus Man Utd defence 92%

Sterling – 10/10 plus 83%

Salah – 9/10 plus 97%

Kane – 7/10

Aguero – 8/10

This is not saying you should own them just think carefully before you don’t
