This is part 2 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 won’t cover transfers in real time either. It’s just to give an idea of the trends for the week no more.  The teams are shown as their “final-ish” teams so they could change.  Where they have twitter accounts I have shown this and they may update them there or on our Slack Channel which is part of our subscription Patreon site but this is not guaranteed

Rick Porter

Rick’s last 4 seasons overall ranks were 29k, 1k, 30k and 2k. 

GW21 points: 75   (FPL average 48) Total points: 1,366, Overall Rank: 7k, green arrow: 7k Team Value: £105.4m

Rick has used his Free Hit Chip and Triple Captain Chip

A good week for me despite a bad call. I switched my captain from out-of-form Salah to very in-form Gundogan at the last minute for fear of missing out on a bumper haul, and we all know how that went… Fortunately big returns from Bamford, Martinez, Dias and Dallas helped ease the pain and I’ve enjoyed a healthy green arrow that, to be honest, I was unsure I’d get once all the subs and VC picks came into play.

What next?

I should probably roll my transfer as I could really use the flexibility in the coming weeks to adapt for the likely DGW24 that should drop any day now. However, although my team looks fine on paper, I have three Man City assets that could be rested at any time, a goal-scoring Alonso potentially starting over Chilwell, and Bamford suffering from a downplayed dead leg. That’s without taking into account possible Covid cases or this crazy packed schedule forcing yet more rotation. Considering all that, having non-playing Davis sat on the bench when I’m flush with cash and have a FT spare seems like a needless risk. He has to go.


Even though he failed to perform against Newcastle, the obvious Davis upgrade is Calvert-Lewin. Not only is he fully supported again with Digne back, he’s owned by 40% of managers, so could cause damage should he return to his early season form. Everton could also potentially play twice in GW24. The only downside is that it would give me a benching headache each week… but that’s one of the better problems to face.

As price changes aren’t an issue I’ll wait until the last moment to make the transfer in case there’s any late news.


Salah is the obvious choice. Bruno Fernandes vice.

Transfer summary:  Likely to be Davis out and Calvert Lewin in

Kris O

Kris’s last 4 seasons overall rank were 39k, 44k, 46k and 23k

GW21 points: 79 -4   (FPL average 48) Total points: 1,318, Overall Rank: 54k, green arrow: 35k Team Value: £104.8m

Kris has used his Free Hit 

So a good GW21 for me, helped by Salah captain. It would have been amazing had I not thrown a last minute -4 of Holding to Chilwell; meaning I only fielded 10 players in the end! the only thing I’d say is I was right to think Chelsea defenders would do well but not to risk a move when selection was uncertain. Even if Kane is out I plan to roll, unless of course I get a lot of injury scares in the press conferences.

Captain Salah, vice Grealish.

Good luck!

Andrew Pratt

Andrew finished with an overall rank of 313k last 8k in 18/19 and 1k in 17/18 

GW21 points: 73 -4   (FPL average 48) Total points: 1,343, Overall Rank: 21k, green arrow: 8k Team Value: £105.2m

Andrew hasn’t used any of his chips 

Gameweek 21 review

GW21 saw a decent green arrow in a week which was unlucky for some with many players rested. Moving Kane to Calvert Lewin was a damp squib with Everton and Calvert-Lewin looking very poor. This was one of those rare games in which your much vaunted forward is practically absent and barely deserves his 2 points. I’ll give Calvert-Lewin another chance in gameweek 22 against Leeds but I won’t bring in more Everton players in a hurry. Spurs were poor too. My captain Cancelo was benched and stand-in captain Gundogan only scored 3. Salah, Bamford, Dallas and the Manchester United double defence did the business for me. I’m really enjoying watching Leeds. Going into GW21, I brought in Salah for Raphinha but took the vice off Salah at the very last minute. That was costly but it feels good having Salah back in the fold.

Gameweek 22

I have one free transfer. Injury concerns I now have are Bamford (flagged at 75% likely to play) and Walker-Peters, who I probably wouldn’t play away to United anyway. I’m trusting Bamford will shake off the dead leg and be fine to hopefully torment Everton. I don’t have any burning issues with my team and I don’t see any assets I need urgently. I’ll wait until closer to the deadline for further news but I plan to roll this week’s transfer in an effort to ensure I have two transfers going into gameweek 24, which could be a double for some.

Captain will probably be Salah (who I worry might be due a rest soon) and vice on someone who is very likely to start, probably Fernandes.

3 thoughts on “Fantasy Premier League GW22 teams – 4 FFGeek Contributors teams part 2”

  1. Hi,

    Question for Rick Porter, if I may: Just wondering if you’ve decided on what your starting line-up will be this week?

    I have a near-identical midfield and attack, and cannot for the life of me figure out from those 8 players who to demote to the bench. It’s currently on Son because of a) his poor recent form and b) a stuttering Spurs facing a rejuvenated (and more defensively-minded) Chelsea.

    It’s a conundrum. Any pointers Rick?

    Thanks, and good luck all,


    • It’s certainly a tough one. Assuming there’s no news from the last few press conferences and I bring in DCL, I’ll probably bench McCarthy, Bamford, Dallas and Coufal. The Leeds boys don’t deserve a benching, but I have to go off something and – however minor the injury – Bamford’s flagged so may start on the bench or get taken off early again. Dallas is up against DCL who I hope will grab a goal or two, so it makes sense to drop him as well. Likewise, Coufal is against Grealish.

      In this situation there’s no right or wrong really, just find a as good a reason as you can to justify a decision and if it doesn’t work out then take it on the chin. You’ll never get all these calls right and you’ll get to have another go at making the same choice next week if you have the same 8 attackers I have.

      It’s actually a great position to be in. We’ve had to rely on benches more than ever this season, so having a player you want on the pitch sat in that first position is ideal. Unfortunately, occasional frustration is the price you pay for that security.

      Benching Son is out of the question for me. His ownership and potential is huge. The only thing worse than not having a player like that when he hauls is owning him and having him watching from the sidelines. If he blanks then at least you’re in good company.

  2. Thanks Rick. Really useful input which has helped me think again and address it from a different view. Much appreciated
