fantasy premier league – last minute FFGeek team changes

Those who come to the site wont be surprised that I’ve been prevaricating and pontificating over my fantasy premier league team and decided to make some changes.  Here they are with a few words

fantasy premier league – last minute FFGeek team changes

The team

fantasy premier league

So changes are:

Cedric for Stephens – you may have seen my tweet that Cedric is being monitored so this is a sideways trasfer

Lacazette, Lokilo and Naughton out – Firmino, Zaha and Mason in

Although Lacazette fixes gameweek 4 as a captain he rather unbalanced the team.  This change got 2 players in with good fixtures.  The Coutinho news could have been better though.

Unfortunately to afford it I had to put in a £4.0m midfielder which I was desperately trying not to do.  Unfortunately no one in the United defence looks certain at under £6.0m.  I’ve been on lots of sites to get a 2nd opinion and there was no consensus.  In fact 3 sites had 3 different players next to Bailly so Bailly had to stay.

I would have downgraded Davies to any top 7 team apart from Everton due to their fixtures but even Liverpool don’t have a guaranteed £5.0m starter.  This unfortunately makes it hard to go back to 4-3-3.  I did think about Moreno for Mee but it just seemed like too much of a gamble.  By the way there’s no chance Mason will play.  I probably think Rosenior has a better chance but if by some miracle Mason did play it would give me a reasonable rotation with Mee.

I don’t have a specific plan for GW4 captain which has the potential to be an Arsenal player  only but I will be keeping 2 transfers for it come what may which is pain.

Thats it.  Good luck and remember GW1 either way doesn’t dictate your season.  It’s a marathon not a sprint.

fantasy premier league GW2 – analysing 10 top FPL managers

August 13, 2017


  • James

    Hennessy (Elliot)
    Baily, Bertrand, Daniels, Dawson (K Long)
    KDB, Fabregas, Zaha (Atsu, Carroll)
    Kane, Lukaku, Firmono

    anyone think I should Upgrade, downgrade, swap or change formation?

  • Dal221

    Forster or Foster? That extra £0.5m could be crucial… 🙂

  • Karol

    Geek, now our only difference is that I have Forster and Atsu, you have Foster and Ward Prowse 😀

  • Aditya Dutta

    Bailly is nailed on for sure right?
    He didn’t feature much in the pre-season..

  • pedro

    similar line up Geek 🙂 I have Lindelof at the minute, the uncertainty over him starting is nagging me – slightly tempted to swap him out for Matip as he is nailed on to start. This is gonna go to the wire!!.

  • Jack

    KDB and Dawson, or Erikssen and Lindelof?

  • J to the t

    Your swaps now make your team exactly the same as mine! I previously had
    Alonso Valencia Holding Rodriguez
    but changed to
    Davies Bailly Mee and firminho
    because I didn’t like the risk of holding not starting and felt too much money spent on alonso and Valencia

  • Christy Bennett-Spark

    forster (fabianski)
    kolasinac, holding, aspi (trippier, rangel)
    alli, willian, redmond, lolley (carrol)
    lukaku, lacazette, chicharito

    I want to trade chicharito for jesus and was wondering who i should trade redmond for as i need to save 0.5 to get jesus. any suggestions welcomed

  • rdb

    will Davies play?

  • Josh

    i’d had firmino (and rodriguez) and switched to lacazette, now you’ve got me rethinking… granted he doesn’t offer much benefit captaincy-wise, but I’m really iffy about liverpool with their convulsions and UCL fixtures. pls FPL gods, grant me insight!
