FPL team tips gameweek 5 – FFGeek contributors show their GW5 teams part 3
Here’s part 3 of the FPL managers who contribute to the FFGeek site with good histories who show their teams each week. This will give people a feel for what other managers are doing. It’s a fairly informal thing with no obligation on anyone and these teams may change at anytime before the deadline without further notice. It also wont cover early transfers. It’s just to give an idea of the trends for the week no more.
Alex finished in 17k last season 10k in 16/17 28k in 15/16 and 3k in 14/15

Here’s the team for GW5. It might not have been the best idea to wildcard before the international break, but it is what it is, I wanted to get Mendy and Alonso into the team before their prices rose any more. Its a shame that Alli picked up a hamstring injury, but I will keep him on the team because I’m not convinced by Moura and Spurs have a run of prime fixtures coming up. I will be a bit cheeky and leave Alli in the starting XI, as well as give vice-captain duties to Alonso. Best of luck to everyone!
Keith finished with a 3k OR last season, an incredible OR of 325 in 16/17 and 9k in 15/16.
Keith is one of the 10 top FPL managers I follow weekly who’ve finished the last 3 seasons in the top 10k OR.
GW4 points: 46 (average 44) Total points 260, Gameweek rank 2,464k, Overall Rank: 221k, red arrow 42k, Team Value: £101.1m
I have had a rough start to season and I thought it was a good time to wildcard but I felt I could not justify a -8 or -12… For another week I guess..
I kept Ederson and Mendy and Shaw, but felt I had to get Alonzo in my team. I am hoping that Ramsey keeps playing as a 10 and they have the ability imo to score lots of goals as well as Chelsea. Thats why I am doubling up on Pedro and Hazard. I am scared to death to not have Salah, but I felt I have not seen the same magic that I saw last year and he has missed a boatload of opportunities. I am hoping they don’t start going in and since I am behind in most my leagues I made the decision that I will take that chance for now. As a manager who is not afraid to take hits most weeks, if he starts going crazy again, I will take the hits.. but now I am taking my chance with Mane. Up front my experiment of Tosun and Zaha failed miserably, but after wildcarding this week I am sure of brace from Touson.
Wilson has a run of great fixtures till GW11 against ManU. Ings I believe has a point to prove and his fixtures over that same time are mixed. Hopefully Walcott can get going and I can use a 3-5-2 some weeks.
Good Luck all!
