Here’s my fantasy premier league team selection GW15 article. As is normal, I review GW14, share my transfer thoughts, captain choice and the lineup dilemmas.
fantasy premier league team selection GW15 – the FFGeek team
Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 3 seasons overall ranks are 36k, 17k and 21k.
Given that the gameweek deadline is in less than 2 hours I’m going to be brief.
Here’s the points and the basic stats
GW14 points: 61 (FPL average 51) Total points 785, Gameweek rank 1,588k, Overall Rank: 335k, green arrow 121k, Team Value: £102.1m:
So a decent size green arrow of 121k to a 335k overall rank on 785 points.
So a good week mainly thanks to Aubameyang and luckily picking Vardy as captain even though I was originally going for Mane.
4 consecutive green arrows and 2 retaken penalties have seen the luck with me over the last 2 weeks. You can’t help but feel payback has got to come at some stage
1 free transfers and £0.5m in the bank.
This week I’m going to carry over the free transfer.
Mount is my main worry not only form but also whether he starts or not. Last week he was accommodated by Kante being left out but you can’t think that will continue. The lost to West Ham may mean changes and Mount could be the fall guy. However home to Villa is an attractive fixture so I’m going to hold tight and hope for the best.
That’s it then. Carrying over the free transfer
You may have seen my captain analysis article where Vardy was the overwhelming favourite. I don’t often go against the polls and I’m certainly not with that level of favouritism.
The bench is a straight choice between Cantwell and Tomori. I went for Tomori despite Cantwell’s recent form. I just think the Chelsea clean sheet has more chance than Cantwell returning but we’ll see.
The team then
Here’s the lineup:
Good luck everyone. I have a feeling it could be a very FPL high scoring gameweek and one where big overall ranks are lost and gained if that doesn’t sound too overly dramatic!
