Whats on the pod?

Alex talks about how he’s turned around his FPL form after the last 2 seasons.  We all  talk about GW23 , our thoughts for GW24 transfers and captains

There’s also a discussion on the potential upcoming DGW26 and BGW29 and how were planning on dealing with it

We also answer questions from the FFGeek Slack channel

The Questions

If Burnley have DGW in 26 as well (is that possible?) then is it worth having 2 assets for GW 24? I can’t see anyone investing in 3.

If I can only start one of Grealish or Watkins, which should it be?

What is the best GW to play the BB chip?

similar question, other than GW26, do you expect any other double gameweek option to play BB chip?

what’s your plans regarding the premium players for the rest of the season?

If you was to look at a WC in the coming 3 gameweeks, who are the must have options?

Son vs Kane, which would you pick?

With City’s fixture list taking a turn, is a defensive double up still the way to go? (Lucky Liverpool penalty for Salah dramatics excluded)


What’s the best option for team with all chips still available?

Q1 : I need to overcome 90 points in my minileague, what would be the strategy to do that keep playing normal with so many games to go, or i need to start playing more diferentials to make up the ground?

Q2: With Vardy and Kane coming back are you looking to bring anyone back in

Who’s a better 1 week punt: Rashford vs West Brom or Rodriguez in a double vs Fulham and City.

Best Captain option for next week? Fernandes versus WBA or one of the less reliable players who has a double (DCL or Gundogan for example)

Coufal or Robbo for last defensive pick this weekend?

We were all set on defensive double from city but with Sterling and Gundogan both firing should we slowly move to obe defender and two city midfielders also KDB coming back soon

Is it worth spending transfers in Leeds, Everton, Fullham, Burnley and Southampton players for their double games in GW 24 and 25? If so who should we target?

One fun one if you have the time:

If Ederson took a penalty next game would you bring him in for Martinez?
