Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 4 seasons overall ranks are 17k, 36k, 17k and 21k.
GW11 points: 82 (FPL average 62) Total points 631, Overall Rank: 1,216k, green arrow 463k Team Value: £100.6m
I used my wildcard in GW9
Here’s the points:
So a 463k green arrow to 631 points and 1.216m overall rank.
With 9 returners I was hoping to halve my rank from 1.6m to 800k so to end up at 1.2 million was very disappointing. The Salah, Kane and Son double point hauls that others got were the reason
2 free transfers and £1.3m in the bank
With Salah so far ahead in the captain poll and up against Fulham I’ve decided to get him in no matter what.
My original plan was a straight swap effectively with Bruno Fernandes but such is his last 3 game form and his ownership amongst serious managers and the 10 top managers I follow I’ve decided to keep him and look for other avenues.
I looked at two options where the difference was essentially whether to get rid of Van Aanholt for Dallas or Calvert Lewin for Watkins/Wilson.
The Covid situation at Newcastle has spooked me a little in that who knows what team they could put out so I’ve decided to go the Van Aanholt route and stick with Calvert Lewin for the moment.
So the transfers are:
Van Aanholt out Dallas in
Bissouma out Salah in
Vardy out Brewster in
I don’t like taking Vardy out for a good fixture but really there was little other way of funding it
Salah with De Bruyne vice is the choice here
The only choice to make was Dallas vs Soucek as Masuaku is injured. I’ve gone with Soucek as his anytime goalscoring odds were very slightly better than the Leeds clean sheet odds
Here’s the team:
Good luck everyone!
