Here’s our fantasy premier league team selection GW27 article. We look at last week, the transfer thoughts, lineup dilemmas and the captain choice
fantasy premier league team selection GW27 – the FFGeek team for GW27
GW26 points: 71 (average 57) Total points 1,577, Gameweek rank 1,255k, Overall Rank: 72k, green arrow 5k, Team Value: £102.8m
Firstly here’s the points:
I wrote in detail about GW26 among other things in my early FFGeek team article if you want more info but here I’m going to be brief.
A week with a 5k green arrow and an OR improvement to 72k OR.
5 returning players above my minimum of 4 although 4 double figure point hauls is good. A gameweek rank of 1,255k outside my target of 1 million.
A gameweek of mixed emotions. I luckily kept Aguero which I was very grateful for but when 2 players as low owned as Barnes and Foster get 11 and 10 points respectively and you only see a 5k green arrow then you’ve got to be disappointed. The template of Pogba and Liverpool defence just nullified any gains I made.
1 free transfer and £0.7m in the bank.
This week I’ve been wildly fluctuating between whether I free hit in 32 or free hit free hit in 31. Mainly because of Aubameyang and his next 2 fixtures. I could have done a -4 for Aubameyang in with Barnes out and Hazard out with a cheap replacement. That would have effectively committed me to doing a preparation for GW32 but I struggled with the GW32 to GW33 transition. With the announcement that the Man Utd v Man City fixture is now GW35 and the Wolves v Man Utd one will have to go to 32 shows that they will tweak the fixtures. I know a lot of people who think 32-33 is no problem so I’m not criticising it as a strategy. I’ve never really got my head around it or come up with a way of doing it I feel comfortable with.
So in the end I decided to continue with a plan of preparing for GW31 despite it meaning I’ve got Richarlison and Hazard who are in teams struggling at present. That would mean free hitting in GW32.
So the transfer is Morgan out who seems to have lost his place and Yedlin in for the home game against Huddersfield. I did think of taking Wan Bissaka out as he’s injured but stuck with the plan of Morgan for the moment. I also thought about Alexander Arnold in for Morgan as I had the exact cash but a match against Man Utd didn’t seem to have the same initial prospects of returns that Newcastle v Huddersfield does. Plus Newcastle have a good run of fixtures to come.
So the transfer is Morgan out and Yedlin in.
That only leaves me with 10 players as Wan Bissaka is injured and I thought about a hit. Especially as I am 1 player short and can only get to 10 players in GW31 in any case. There didn’t seem to be any logical choice on who to use it for with Chilwell an injury doubt so I left it.
Here’s the amended team planner:
The gameweek looks like a disaster waiting to happen frankly and I can forsee a situation where all my hard earned gains are wiped out in 1 go.
With only 10 players that’s not an issue.
I’ve done a captain analysis article and I’ve gone for Son.
That’s it good luck to everyone in GW27
