So here’s the final version of the FFGeek team for GW1.

Here’s the team

What happened?

Effectively I decided to make Bruno Fernandes tomorrow’s problem and hope that Palace don’t get hammered and he suddenly becomes the Captain favourite in GW2.  That could be tricky given that Chelsea play Liverpool which makes Aubamyang home to West Ham the only real alternative.

The changes since the last draft

Here’s the link to the last draft if you’ve got time on your hands

Anyway here are the changes

Nyland to Button

With the Martinez Villa rumours among many to be fair,  I’ve gone for Button to challenge Johnstone.  I’m not worried about price drops when people suddenly realise he isn’t number 1.  I’ll take it on the chin if it happens.

Mitchell to Laporte

I had a look at the defence with the objective of getting players in who could perform at over 4.0 PPM.  The Man City defence is the best in the league and Laporte seems the only certain starter although I will have to accept rest related rotation.

Davies to Robertson

I didn’t want to get rid of Davies but I’ve said before that I think there could be upside in the Liverpool defence given Alisson’s injury last season and their rather unfocused attitude after the league was won.  The attacking ability of the 2 provides a hedge against clean sheets.  I’m not worried about pre-season. I don’t necessarily think it correlates that well to the season proper

Fernandes to Soucek

Fernandes becomes a GW2 problem.  Soucek worth the £0.5m upgrade on a £4.5m midfielder

Ceballos to Reed

In effect it was a Soucek-Ceballos swap.  It seems like Soucek should play and his stats are miles ahead of Ceballos’s

Brewster to Antonio

Fixtures are terrible but form last season was incredible

Looking forward

In GW3 I want to swap Aubameyang for De Bruyne /Sterling and if prices allow it and depending what happens in GW2 Ward Prowse for Foden who I think could be amazing given gametime


Gameweek 1 does not make or break your season.  It’s a 38 week season and a marathon not a sprint.  Don’t be feeling over confident or disheartened whatever happens.

Having said that Good luck and thanks for coming on the site
