fantasy premier league GW23 – an early transfer for the FFGeek team


Here’s a very short fantasy premier league GW23 article just to confirm that I’ve just now made an early transfer to the FFGeek team due to a potential price rise.

fantasy premier league GW23 – an early transfer for the FFGeek team

You may have seen my early FFGeek team article where I reviewed GW22 and talked about making a transfer for the injured Fabianski.  I won’t repeat anything I said there and this is just a short note to confirm an early transfer.  I’ll still do my usual Friday night transfer to confirm my team lineup as I’ve yet to decide on captain or bench,  so this is going to be a very short one.

West Ham confirmed that Fabianski will be out for a couple of weeks which left me no choice but to make a transfer to avoid having no GK this week.  I did think about transferring Button for Martin the reserve GK but West Ham have  signed Randolph who I guess could be the replacement and in any case a couple of weeks means he could be back for the second game of the 2 in GW24 which would be just typical.

I decided to transfer in McCarthy of Southampton.

Southampton’s fixtures could be worse.  He’s the cheapest of the starting GKs at the moment, the defence is on the improve and he has a good save % which is always helpful.

According to the price change predictor site FPL statistics McCarthy is going up in price tonight.  That wouldn’t normally worry me but I think prices are going to be tight and I just couldn’t see a reason not to do it.  It does mean that I have attack v defence in McCarthy vs Jimenez which is a pain but something I’ll just have to take.

So Fabianski out McCarthy in

Here’s the lineup as it is so far:

  1. I did it last night, but it’s bit me now because Rashford looks like he could be out for a week or 2. On the plus side I carried over a transfer so Firmino is an easy in and it’s made the decision for me on the 3 Liverpool players for week 24 so AA,Mane,Firmino it is.

    • If you have no playing GK then it may just be a -2 point hit at worst. So it’s not a terrible move in that situation.

  2. Guys, thoughts on wild card team. My hand has been forced. Few injuries. About 110 points off the top of my table. Any suggestions on squad selection?

    • Do you have a draft?

      I would use the latest Geek imaginary wildcard article, and also the patron wildcard weekly article if you have access to that
