Here’s my fantasy premier league team selection GW26 article. As is normal, I review GW25, share my transfer thoughts, captain choice and the lineup dilemmas.
fantasy premier league team selection GW26 – the FFGeek team
Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 3 seasons overall ranks are 36k, 17k and 21k.
Gameweek 25 review
GW25 points: 56 (FPL average 47) Total points 1,458 Gameweek rank 2,290k, Overall Rank: 78k, red arrow 6k, Team Value: £103.8m
Here’s the points:
I went through the gameweek in my early FFGeek team thoughts article so go to there if you want more detail.
In short though a 6k red arrow to 78k overall rank. Only 2 players returned though so it’s a result not to get a massive red arrow. Obviously when your captain scores 16 points x 2 =32 points that helps.
I free transfer and £4.3m in the bank.
My choice has been either Ings and Robertson in for Lundstram and Maupay for a -4 point deduction or just Firmino in for Maupay.
I decided to go for the latter as the points ceiling seems higher for Liverpools great run of fixtures.
I can deal with Ings next week although I can’t get him really with the Lundstram transfer out which is a bit of a pain.
So Firmino in for Maupay is the transfer
Man City v Arsenal and Villa v Sheffield United are postponed for the EFL final clash with GW28.
I have De Bruyne, Grealish and Lundstram so manageable at the moment.
I’ve put Cantwell at the back of the bench and I give Soyuncu more chance of a clean sheet than Rico. I’ve started Lundstram even though it seems unlikely he will play but just in case
I haven’t done a captain analysis article but with Salah the runaway captain poll leader I won’t be going anywhere else. De Bruyne vice
The team lineup looks like this:
