fantasy premier league team selection GW22 – the FFGeek team


Here’s my fantasy premier league team selection GW22 article. As is normal, I review GW21, share my transfer thoughts, captain choice and the lineup dilemmas.

fantasy premier league team selection GW22 – the FFGeek team

Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 3 seasons overall ranks are 36k, 17k and 21k.

GW21 review

GW21 points: 62 (FPL average 48) Total points 1,221, Gameweek rank 920k, Overall Rank: 98k, green arrow 24k, Team Value: £103.6m

Here’s the points:

I went into loads of detail in my early FFGeek team thoughts article so I won’t here.

In essence it was a gameweek with a 24k green arrow to 1,221 points and a 98k overall rank. The first time this season I’ve been under 100k overall rank. Luck was with me with 10points off the bench from Cantwell.

Transfer thoughts

2 free transfers and £1.2m in the bank

Looking to GW24

Firstly I should outline what I’m hoping to do in the double gameweek 24 where Liverpool and West Ham play twice.  Essentially I want to get Fabianski, Salah, Mane and Alexander Arnold in the team.  At the moment I have Alexander Arnold and Mane.  This week my transfer will be Pope out to Fabianski as a double gameweek gamble hedged by Fabiasnki’s ability to accumulate save points (hopefully).  Unfortunately prices are moving against me but as of now I can do the following transfers to make it

GW22 – Pope to Fabianski and carry over the extra transfer

GW23 – Gomez to Simpson and carry over the extra transfer

GW24 – Jimenez and Alli out – Salah and Calvert Lewin in.

However given I can only do this with the exact money there will have to be a fluid contingency plan in place.  That will revolve around replacements for Simpson and Calvert-Lewin.

The team would look like this:

So the first stage this week is the transfer of Pope out and Fabianski in

Lineup issues

To be honest my bench could have been made up from any combination of Maupay, Grealish, Gomez, Rico, Cantwell and even Alli.  In the end I went Gomez, Rico and Cantwell although it wasn’t a particularly scientific choice unfortunately.  Grealish was the tricky one.

The team lineup

I’m approaching this game with a decent amount of trepidation.  Mainly due to the Man Utd v Norwich game and the negative rank affects that Rashford and to a lesser extent Martial can have.  However even if I wanted to take a hit to cover Rashford it wasn’t feasible really so I will just take the pain.

Here’s the lineup:

Good luck in GW22 everyone
