fantasy premier league team selection – catching up with the FFGeek team before “GW32”


,

Here’s my fantasy premier league team selection article where I just give a quick update on what’s happening or not with the FFGeek team

fantasy premier league team selection – catching up with the FFGeek team before “GW32”

If you’re not familiar with the site my previous 3 seasons overall ranks are 36k, 17k and 21k 

I outline my  FPL strategy along with 10 other FFGeek contributors in our new EBook.

Despite the news that the Premier League will not resume in May with no return date set amid corona virus pandemic the fantasy premier league site remains open and accepts transfers.  For that reason I’m still going to give updates on the FFGeek team and any plans I may have.

You’ll find Andrew Whitfields gradual wildcard article very helpful to give an overall picture of the current FPL situation

Here’s my current position:

Total points: 1693 overall rank: 31k.  team value:  £103.1m transfers available: 2 

2nd wildcard, bench boost and free hit still available

At the moment I haven’t made any transfers since I swapped out Rico for Basham before GW30.

So GW36 is the 2nd of May so it’s quite possible we go past GW38 before any football starts, if it does at all.  For that reason I’m in no special hurry to make transfers

If I was going to my transfers would probably do something like the following:

Vardy out to Jimenez

Mahrez out to Bruno Fernandes (if he becomes template)

Button to Pope

This would leave £0.2m in the bank so a bit closer than I though although I could sub someone else in as 2nd GK instead of Pope and it’s possible I would go for Martial over Fernandes anyway if Fernandes isn’t template.

Here’s how it would look:

You will see from my recent fixture ease schedule that Wolves and Man Utd have good fixtures to the end of the season.  Although how that season would be grouped is anyones guess.  You can also see from my Bruno Fernandes focus article that despite the hype there are legitimate reasons to be doubtful.  However if he becomes template then I would put him in none the less

That explains Jimenez and Fernandes.  Pope despite not overall good fixtures has home games against Wolves, Brighton, Watford and Sheffield although it’s quite possible the concept of home games won’t exist in an empty stadium finish to the season.  Burnley are 9th in xGA and he’s probably the cheapest keeper, just, in that top 9 so it does make some sense and he is the top points scoring GK.

I won’t be making any transfers this week and apart from those I’m not sure who else I would transfer out?  Maybe Cantwell for Fleck?

Having the wildcard is also helpful for the future.

That’s it.  Remember to Stay Safe and follow all the appropriate authorities rules at this tumultuous time in history

  1. if season restarts, all postponed games moves to the remaining game weeks?
    so wc in w37 to have benchboost in looooooooong w38.

      • i really doubt there will be a restart though. personally i think its better they concentrate on a good situation for season 20/21.

      • We can’t really answer that until we see how the outstanding fixtures will be rearranged and in what order, in particular the double gameweeks..
